Top critical review
Really don't know what the fuss is all about !!
on 8 April 2015
Did a lot of research before deciding on these phones and was hoping the phones would be just what I needed ... how wrong could I be !!
Firstly, the headphones are dark blue, not black as they look in the photos - they are however VERY nicely made.
I was hoping that they would "sound" as other's have said "crisp in the top end" being very important but with some clout. Unfortunately these headphones are very similar in sonic character to all the other decidedly average designs out there that flood the market... that being that they are completely "flat" sounding ... absolutely NO life or sparkle to them whatsoever.
The bass is actually quite good, punchy but not overwhelming like soooo many others around this price point. It's the mids and highs that disappoint hugely - they're not even neutral, they simple lack any air or sparkle... boring is the best word to describe them.
I tried them corded and using Bluetooth, and they sound the same, cabled or wireless.
Lastly, the right channel on my pair had a constant irritating buzzing when using Bluetooth, so that put the nail in the coffin for me.
So, hugely dissapointed with these cans, after so much expectation. They simply sound like all the other dreadful cans that currently proliferate the market up to £200 or so. I'll keep using my Panasonic RP-HTX7's that simply blow these and many other's up to £100 out of the water, by being EXTREMELY musical... and all for £30.
