      Cheap and cheap sounding headphones

      Whilst rummaging through a cable drawer last week, I found all manner of headphones made by a number of different manufacturers. Why i've got so many headphones is anyone's guess, but the most likely scenario is that the majority came free with some purchase or other, and have simply accumulated over the years. One such 'find' was the Strand SH-05 earphones - although to be honest Strand isn't a make i've heard of before.

      In terms of cost, the earphones are widely available online with prices ranging between £3 and £6.99.

      The SH-05 earphones take on the basic in-ear design and feature a fairly robust all-plastic construction. The earpieces don't feature any foam padding, and the end result is that they aren't especially comfortable when worn for anything over ten minutes. What I can say in their favour is that they remain firmly in place, and are unlikely to fall out.

      Sound Quality
      - - - - - - - - - -
      As a budget offering, Strand's earphones are somewhat lacking in terms of their aural output - firstly because the treble is rather tinny, and secondly because any real bass is lacking. The overall sound is a little feeble, but it's by no means terrible, and there's a general clarity which makes them perfectly adequate for listening to spoken word.

      Final Word
      - - - - - - -
      Although they're very cheap, I wouldn't recommend Strand's SH-05 earphones. The sound quality is no better than would be expected for the cost, and there are plenty of similarly priced models out there which perform to a higher standard. What I can say is that the headphones are reliable, and i've used them on and off for the last couple of years without any issues.
