How are they making these so cheap?
on 6 April 2016
Just to be completely above board, I didn't buy this from amazon, but I liked it enough to leave a review here all the same.
I work in studio environments, and as a musician, I'm very very picky about my audio. I'm used to headphones with a flat response. I've had in ear headphones from Phillips and Sennheiser before and I really didn't like them. They were ok for somebody who doesn't care all that much about audio, but anybody like me with decent ears, really wouldn't like it.
However, despite the cheap price of these headphones I have been really blown away. My main headphones that I'm using are a pair of Audio Technica mx50 studio headphones, so I'm very accustomed to very rich, detailed audio. I was really worried about getting cheap earbuds, but I needed to have something that I could wear while in bed (I'm in the habit of watching tv in bed to try and go to sleep).
I think that these are excellent for watching tv on the go, with voices in the mid range being nice and clear, without the bass drowning anything out. The treble frequencies aren't amazingly smooth, but what do you expect for spending so little on earphones?
As for music......they're actually pretty amazing. I listen to a lot of Rock (such as Royal Blood), metal (Pantera), Rap (Kendrick Lamar), and some acoustic music (Jason Mraz).
With such a mix of genres, you'd think that such a cheap pair of headphones would not be able to keep up, but actually, they're really good. I bring these to work with me instead of my big headphones sometimes, and thats saying something, because I never thought of the bigger headphones being inconvenient.
There are very few minus points about this. I'm not usually much of a fan of earphones, as they don't fit my ears all that well, but I think that these are a very comfy fit (and I wear these sometimes for 2 hours at a time).
The only thing that I think is a drawback is that I think the cables are probably not going to wear all that well over time, but at this price, I don't think I'll mind all that much if I have to buy a new pair, as earphones are just more prone to wear anyway compared to big over ear headphones such as my Audio Technica headphones.
In short, buy these if you need to save a few pennies on quality headphones. These are really doing very well as a second pair for convenience for me!
