The Edifier BH-880 are a wired headset that offers style comfort and quality sound and come in at around €160 which for what you get is not bad at all. Edifier has yet to let me down with the audio experience from what I have tested so far and we have more to come from Edifier this month too and I look forward to it as always.
The headphones are really comfortable to wear but this is a wired experience which for me is not really an issue as I have countless pairs of such and wireless and there remains an argument to which is better. What you get here is a really nice clean design with alloy hinges and really nice fitting closed back cans which isolate much of the outside noise,they do not have ANC but do a great job and are ideal for the home but you could wear outdoors.
I tend to wear mine indoors and leave the earbuds for outdoors and you can plug these into an existing system via the adaptor provider which is where you will get great benefit watching movies or streaming. The sound from these is best described as balanced well all round however not as loud as I would like but thats my personal taste. You wont be disappointed with how they sound regardless
From using these on my home system and via music on my phone,Spotify and You Tube which is what I do on a daily basis the sound was crisp and clear across all sound stages and genres though bass lacked to my liking but you can fix that with an EQ on your phone to get a better result. The comfort level is brilliant and these do not clamp on your head yet just sit nicely and therefore no sweating with the leather padding that’s around the cups and headband which for long periods of use is ideal.
For the package you get you can’t go wrong if its comfort and a great build you are after here with the alloy joints which will last longer than your typically plastic affair, In the box you get the required cables and fittings alongside a velvet carry case which is a nice touch. The only thing to watch for here is if you have fitted cases is the headphone jack might not reach all the way in with the design of the jack but having said that these are top notch but its something to keep in mind you can see in the image gallery.
