Great all round head phones
on 7 February 2012
I was looking for a reasonably priced set of quality multipurpose headphones and I couldn't have been happier when I got these out the box.
I've been holding off writing review for a few months because I wanted to give them a good testing period to see what they were like to live with, and I can report that I'm still as happy with them now as I was when they arrived.
I've used them as monitor headphones within my video editing set up in a studio environment and out on location during video production. But I'm also using them as my casual headphones for listing to my music and online videos.
The set has a decent cable length long enough to allow me movement when working, but also short enough not to become too much of a hindrance when using them casually. The cable feels quality too, nice and thick and terminated in a pleasingly heavy metal jack plug, gold plated of course.
I'm no audiophile, but I know there a many reviews online describing the precise details of the head phones sound quality, all I can say is that the detail and depth of the sound produced by these far surpasses anything else I own. I would also like to highlight the isolating qualities of these headphones, ok they're not as effective as Beyer headsets that I've used, but for the price and portability, these certainly hold their corner.
I have read other people's concerns about the protruding wires above the ear cups that connect across the head band, however unless you're planning to drag them through something similar to a thorn bush, I fail to see how they could be damaged in regular use, mine have been shoved and crammed into many bags and have suffered no ill effects.
In conclusion, quality, comfortable, reliable and affordable.
