“ Headphone-Type: Head / Design: Closed / Wireless: No / Infrared: No / Cable-length: 1.50 m / Sensitivity: 50 mW „
I bought these headphones a few years ago, before I went on holiday. I decided I had had enough of the small ear bud style headphones as they caused me some discomfort on long journeys. I saw these for £12.00 and decided to give them a try.
The headphones are cushioned and fit neatly over the ear. The main body of the headphones is plastic and to be honest they look cheap and unfashionable. The headphone parts spin round so you can share with a friend easily and they also collapse down quite small, making them good for travelling. They do not come in a draw string back though which is frustrating as I like to keep them safe rather than having the wire trailing around all my belongings in my handbag.
The length of the wire for the 3.5mm headphone jack is 1.5 m so it is amble, if not too long.
==Price and availability==
I paid around 12 pounds for these headphones but I bet you can get them a lot cheaper now. Technology has vastly improved and I would not want to pay over £8.00 for a model such as these.
Sound quality is not amazing in these; they sound very tinny and echo when the volume is at its full capacity. They seem to vibrate on my head which feels very irritating. The headphones are not noise isolating ones and let quite a lot of outside noise in, despite fitting extremely close to your ears. When base is played through the headphones it sounds dull and lifeless. Most songs, whether the genre is rock, pop or hip hop sound very similar. The headphones do not bring songs to life.
The headphones also throw out a lot of noise so you will disturb people on the bus if you wear these headphones and have the volume turned up loud.
In regards to comfort, I originally bought these headphones in order to escape the dull aching I get from wearing ear buds, however they do not provide the level of comfort I was hoping for.
I cannot wear these for long time as the plastic band fits very tightly across my head and the ear pads, although cushioned squeeze my ears too tightly. This is very disappointing as on looking at the headphones, they look very comfortable indeed. There is plenty of cushioned padding on the ear muffs.
Although having these headphones for a number of years, they still work as well as they did when I first bought them. Hurray! Disappointingly though, I think technology has moved on and the quality of headphones has greatly improved. The sound quality and comfort of these headphones are poor and these are very important factors when deciding on which headphones to choose. For this reason, I cannot recommend these headphones.
