If you want something that’s light,sounds good and does not sweat your head or ears these are the go-to headphones right now.
I go through and use headphones quite alot be it for testing and personal use and the common theme particularly with fitness most will give you the sweaty ears and head treatment which is annoying and for the most part unavoidable with leather cupped cans. These Soul Transform seem to avoid this due to the design and materials used and another factor to include is how light they are.
Build quality here is great alongside looking good with a flexible band and strong joints these should last some time, Joints are an issue with many headphones but how they are executed is the issue but these are executed well and are robust and I can see them lasting.
Battery life is 18 hours and this lived up the manufacturers claims by multiple charge tests so this is a good USP here for not only those who will use these for fitness but those who have long commutes, You don’t need to be a fitness head to just use these anyone can. They also come with a carry bag which is great.
The headband has a typical plastic top but its got three areas cut out for breathing and on the underside another layer of rubber which is well vented to allow your head to breathe. The cups impressive,light and as soul have claimed “times of sweaty headphones have now come to an end: The earpads are removable and washable and the specially designed headband is also breathable due to its small air holes. The materials used for these over-ears make them almost as light as a feather with only 155 grams”.
The speakers of these headphones range from 20Hz – 20kHz and have been developed according to the proven Soul Signature recipe. This sound ensures the right balance of powerful bass and clear mids and highs. Thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 the over-ears connect to a smartphone in just one second. Trying all genres lows,mids and highs these sound great and also have good bass which many folks like to have these days but again you can adjust via your smartphones media player. Also to take note call quality is as you would find on your smartphone and was crisp and clear.
Controls are all on one side which makes life easy with raised easy to navigate controls keeping things simple and these work well too and I have had no issue here with them at all. Also on the same side (R) we have a mic LED light, 3.5mm port and micro usb charge port. This set up is best as having controls and ports divided between two cups is annoying but that’s my POV.
Would I recommend these? Yes especially for those into fitness. Not only that anyone that has long commutes and prefers something light and that has good sound these are ideal. They come in two colours Black and Red but perhaps more will come along in the coming weeks which would be nice and give the consumer a choice.
