5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile indulgence for music-lovers, 9 Mar. 2012
This review is from: headphones Soul SL150 BW (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These headphones give a spectacular music experience that need to be heard to be believed - but most people won't want to spend almost £200 to try them out! That's the one problem with these: the price. For the everyday music-listener, any headphones that veer into three figures are excessively priced and out of range which is a shame because they will miss out on the phenomenal sound that you get from such high-end headphones.

I am your average Joe Bloggs, I enjoy listening to music but am not an enthusiast. My husband bought a pair of headphones, similar to these but by a competitor, for a similar price a year ago - these are as equally impressive. I can't give you the numbers or figures about the technical prowess of these headphones but I can say how they feel and what music they play well!

These give a full, rich sound when playing music through an mp3 player. I've played all genres through these: pop, rock, metal, acoustic, dance, classical. All of them sound incredible, and wearing these allows you to get lost in the music. They seem to handle songs which are mid level and upwards a little bit better than bass-heavy songs, but even so, the bass on songs is not distorted. I can't listen to music with the volume to the max on these - they are LOUD! I've also plugged these into my digital piano (with the jack that comes with these), and the sound is even better than I could have imagined.

It comes with a semi-hard case, perfect for travel, and two cables (one with a volume/pause/play control). The cables are flat, and really don't tangle (worth its weight in gold given my frustration with usual headphones wires tangling!).

They are a glossy white finish, with quilted padding on the headband and the over ear pieces. They are very comfortable (comfier than the rival brand that my husband has). They are noise-cancelling, as promised. These feel very high quality and sturdy - everything, from the material, to the cables to the connectors.

The only thing that I can find to say that's negative about these headphones is the price. But then you will struggle to find a sound quality from headphones if you're not willing to pay for it.

If you have a couple of hundred pounds to spare, and enjoy listening to music, I would buy these headphones. They look stylish, feel quality, sound incredible.
