Over the last week I have been testing these headphones and they are the kind that fall into what most would call the budget range, having said that the cost to performance ratio is dropping every year when it comes to features and specs and these coming in under the €100 mark fall into that bracket for me delivering across the board with what is on offer.
They are comfortable to begin with and once placed on the head you will notice immediately how much sound they block out and that is a good start. They do not have audio pass through so lets get that out of the way and that is fine at this price point. They have nice soft leather padding on the cups and headband which gives way to long periods of use without sweat in my testing and conditions. Overall simply comfort to be expected and good build quality.
Controls are simple to use with raised buttons offering the usual features and we also have a dedicated ANC key which is great and you will be best served leaving this on all the time to really immerse yourself in the music and whatever it might be you are watching.
Controls work as follows.
Answer a call – Press MFB (1) to answer. You can adjust the volume by using Volume (2
Reject a call – Hold MFB (1) for 1 second to reject the incoming call
End call – Press MFB (1) while in the call to end it
Redial – Press MFB (1) twice in quick succession to redial the last phone number you
called on your device
Mute microphone – Press MFB (1) twice in quick succession whilst in a call to mute the microphone and repeat to unmute the microphone
Switch microphone – Hold Volume (2) for 1 second in order to switch between the headphone
microphone to the microphone of the handset
Voice dialling – Hold MFB (1) for 1 second and wait for audio tone before giving voice
command to device.
Play/Pause – Press MFB (1)
Adjusting the volume – Press Volume+ (2) or Volume-(3).
The volume can also be controlled on your device
Changing track – Press and hold Next Track (2) or Previous Track (3)
When it comes to sound is where it really matters for most so how would I describe it?? They have good base to start with and once the ANC is turned on you will leave it on end of story and just relax and enjoy, I found these deep and not bright with deeper highs,lows and mids and this is quite a unique situation to be in any many people like this, YOU can clearly hear instruments well and there is good sound direction from Netflix and Youtube meaning you can hear where the sound is coming from be it behind or in front and all genres of music turned out well for me,there is no app so no EQ but this is fine at this price point.
If you want a rich deep feel to your tunes these are the ones to try out,there was no lag latency noticed either with my usual testing which was great to see, The sound stage well balanced overall and if you want comfort and easy to use controls at this price these are ones to put on your list to check out, I would like to see more colours but the matt Black finish looked well overall and lets not forget you get the nice travel case thrown in too.
