Decent, but seriously overpriced!
on 30 November 2013
Firstly i'm a huge Little Monster; so i did want to get these headphones as it has Lady Gaga's name on it!
I'm just going to get to the sound quality...
The headphones are seriously overpriced for £130; do NOT pay that much! The maximum you should be willing to pay for these is £50; if you was to compare them to other in-earphones.
The sound is very good for certain genres. Although it's optimised for Pop music, the earphones find it very difficult to handle tracks with alot going on. E.g: One Direction where it's very Pop-rock.
But where it does excel is in bass. So feed it a few songs from ARTPOP and you get decent sound.
E.g if you play 'Donatella', you get a nice level of clarity; it's not out of this world, but it's listenable and audible. The bass is very good and brings out the best of the bassline. It also goes quite loud! If you play the song 'ARTPOP', you get a very nice listening experience as it's a simple song. But then you get to 'Applause' and the chorus seems a little too out there, a bit hard-edged if i'm honest; no subtlety about it, just noise!
These aren't the best earphones in the world, but they aren't trying to be. If you like Lady Gaga, enjoy dance music and are able to find these under £50; go ahead!
