I am a huge fan of headphones and now sport a pretty nice collection and it will continue to grow with more on the way, However I like something different,something that others dont have or that there is not a huge amount of people wearing them, I am not the type to join in the gang and get something because others have it and everyone else is wearing them. This set of headphones fits that bill perfectly and pretty much for the rest its good all round. Check out the unboxing first to see some more..
First of all the build quality here is excellent and to top it off they look completely different to what is considered an industry standard. The design to looks,the cans themselves even contain glass,or plastic underneath the outer cover piece and the colour..
These have a machined metal finish in Black and Gold and in the hand they feel solid,even the cable supplied is not cheap standard and again has the same finish to it too, Ports where the cable slots into again something different with sunked ports rather than the standard which also gives the jack more stability and making it more secure on both sides.
The headband itself is comfortable with leather padding top and bottom with a gold trim trying to imitate the genuine metal parts but its just a coloured leather (protein skin (As they call it) but compliments the headset well and having said that the flexibility on the band is also good and seems robust too but overall its comfortable even for long time usage so this is important.
The cans themselves are really nice, They are solid and look great in the Black and Gold and really robust and how they connect to the headband too is also really nice the whole setup complements each other well. The cups are clearly marked Left and Right and have no controls at all,this is a wired headset which is still a thing and I like it like that too although I do like my wireless headphones its nice to step back a bit and just plug and go,this is the thing here,There is no fumbling around for buttons or switches nor do you have to charge them either….
The joints on the headphones from band to cups is also really solid and not made with cheap plastic,this is where many headphones fail with a similar design but not these and I feel they will get great life out of them,The padding on the cups too is really soft and feel really nice on the ears even with long hours of use they just settle nicely on the ears and the padding is really soft to touch and speaking of comfort they dont clamp onto your head when you put them on you just feel comfort and sound dying from the outside.There is good movement at all angles on the cups with plenty of room to move any direction to suit everyones head,to look a them and how they are constructed you would not think they budge at all but they do and incorporate the requirements here.
The sound quality is great not that I am a qualified audiophile I have tested more than enough to state whats sounds good and what is crap basically,These are good with Piezo Ceramic Driver technology, the H1707 has a high frequency extension that reaches to 40kHz for high resolution files. The volume could have been a bit higher for my liking but it could be down to my device I am using right now or just me being me and as many know I like it loud but in all fairness they ar eloud enough and in a quite environment you will be pleased.
Overall I was happy with these and the presentation of the package is also really professional which I like to see you get nice extras in the box and overall you get a premium product even though they are a wired headset, Would I like to see them wireless? Well no, they look good as they are and stand out in the crowd. The only one small annoyance I had was when the metal clashes but its a small trade off to pay for a good headset all round.
