I am a huge headphone fan and love trying them out no matter the size or look and these headphones are no exception,They are not a typical standard look but have one of the best builds of headphones I have seen albeit they are on the heavy side.
Check out the unboxing first below before we go into some more detail…
The packaging and presentation
Well if you have seen the video its top-notch simple.. From the outer packing to the inside and how it’s presented when you take off the top sleeve its great and the headphones are sat up looking at you just saying “Grab Me”
Now these are wired and the long argument over which sounds better is still a thing, Personally I prefer a wired connection but have gotten over the fact Bluetooth is the preferred option these days but which sounds better, Sadly that test is not available here with these are pure cable end of story which is by no means any harm.
The build quality
You will find it hard to get better at this price.. They are solid and made with metal and you can feel the weight which is a small trade-off to pay they are virtually indestructible with the hinges following suit. Hinges are a common thing to go on most headphones,rest assured this will not happen here in fact they are that strong I pinched myself when testing them out with my finger catching under one and it hurt so be careful on how you hold them.
The cups are sealed your ears completely covered so no outside noise to contend with and little sound leakage depending on volume.They are VERY VERY COMFORTABLE from the cups to the headband which sits on the underside When you put these on they have a unique way of clasping onto your head but not locking and you can feel the sponges settle nicely to your desired fit.
They look different to the norm with an industrial build quality and feel you can feel you are picking up a real pair of headphones here you can feel the metal and no plastic apart from the edges on the backside of the cups. There is some movement here in other areas as regarding fitting to comfort. The arms extend up and down but there is no bilateral movement here apart from the little leeway on the cups themselves but you really don’t need it they are that deep with cushioning.Finally we have seen a new way for adjustment rather than the typical slider mechanism we usually see..
The headphone has a rubber outer seal which seals in the sound and keeps leakage to a minimum. Given I love headphones I am no self-proclaimed audiophile but dam these sound good and are loud but no super loud like I am used to but it’s probably for the best to save my hearing. All aspects in music were reproduced perfectly fine with highs and lows and they the same applies to taking phone calls and some gaming if you want to use them for that but they are probably a bit on the heavy side for long-term use, this would depend on the individual I guess..
The distinctive Blue logo on each cup lets you know you are picking up quality here each time and people will see that and for those who have not heard of these, Myself included until now will be impressed even though they are a wired headset. They are tough,solid give you an immersive experience and look pretty unique..
They are expensive but in fairness to whats out there today they are well on par when it comes to sound but excel in quality end of story. Really looking forward to testing their next model soon if these are good the rest can only get better.
