I have an extensive collection of headphones here and they get better as time goes on which of course is welcome and it is not the first time we have tried a pair of crusher ANC headphones from the company,this time around we have this fantastic colour too but the built is plastic throughout but it is not really an issue once you look after your headphones and you get a carry case with them so you have no excuse.
If you can get over the build which most will and you put these on your head you will forget about it and just be blown over by how these operate, you do have an ambient mode and ANC mode by holding the left cup.
Comfort is excellent here too and can be worn for long periods of time,typically for me a few hours on You Tube Netflix and so on every evening I move from the True Wireless earbuds to headphones and get away from it all it is like a routine for me alongside testing and wearing for hours was no problem and really comfortable, A bit awkward lying in bed due to size like any headphones if lying down but this is how I use or if nobody in the house turn em up full blast and immerse in the sound.
The controls are great you have the slider on the left for the sensory bass and this is where the magic happens it is quite remarkable and a feeling like no other, On the right is three circular buttons that are easy to find with the hands and work a treat and this I like as many headphones today offer small linear buttons,these work well all the time,here is where you can skip/reverse play/pause tracks etc we go through all this in the video anyway.
These might be targeted at a certain audience but if you have any headphones at home or need a new pair and try these out particularly if you are a bass fan you will want them, Even if you are not a bass heavy fan they are worth a look with comfort in mind and looks,they stand out in this colour, As a normal use case with ANC tuned off and no sensory bass turned up they do a great job too and having these options at hand are great, In general if you like movies for example this will change the experience totally and immerse you in what you are watching, I have tried other brands like the QC25/35 people go on about but only for a short time in a retail outlet and at airports BOSE have yet to send us a pair to test out and Sony with their offering the WH 1000-MX3 yet, I tested them at the press launch, Given I have not had enough time to pair these off from initial testing the Crusher ANC stick it up to them both..
ADJUSTABLE SENSORY BASS Bass you can measure in goosebumps. Crusher ANC features our broadest range of Sensory Bass yet with new, patented drivers. You don’t just hear it, you feel it. And you can easily adjust it up or down based on your preference.
