Cool headphones, Great Sound
on 10 September 2012
After receiving and unpacking my headphones I was first struck by the Gucci looking box. Its good looking, has a magnetic opening and picture of 50 cent looking gangster on the inside. Underneath `Fiddy' lie the sexy looking headphones.
I went for the `Shadow Black' pair which is Blue & Black in colour, they are relatively lightweight and have a flexible ribbon style lead that looks like it could be bent and twisted without harming the headphones. One point I liked is the part that fits inside of your ear is angled slightly so it hooks inside for a better fit. A gold plated jack and an apple inline control with buttons big enough for my `man fingers' complete the headphones.
Also included in the box is small hard round case to keep them in, the headphones can be rolled neatly or `stuffed' into the carry case relatively easily. Silicone passive noise cancelling tips for different ear sizes & an airline plug come as standard.
So to the testing, after settling down on the couch with my laptop I fired up Vevo and started flicking through some music videos. First stop some classic `Fiddy' - Candy Shop, the bass is deep & the lyrics clear, 50's deep vocals reverberate between your ears and Olivia's seductive voice tickles the back of your neck. After winding the volume right to the top the sound is still crystal clear with no distortion, turn it right down and I can't hear the noisy house around me.
Next, field testing!. Running gear donned I set out for an evening jog, the first thing I notice is that the cable is nice and long meaning that I can put my iPhone safe in my pocket and still have plenty of slack to move. After a short distance I find that the earphones keep sliding out, a quick change of tips to a larger size and they stay in much better. The Apple control is easy to find and operate when on the move changing tracks; adjusting the volume and activating the voice control are a piece of cake.
I am not normally a big fan of in-ear headphones but these are comfy, sound great and are definitely worth the money.
