WESC Oboe Headphones
Advantages: Brilliant sound; Look great
Disadvantages: The headphones make my ears and the side of my head hurt after a bit
I won a pair of these WESC headphones in a competition online a couple of months ago, mine are the exact same ones as the headphones in the photo Dooyoo have got up. The colour is called Vibrant Yellow and they are bright but not stupidly bright so that people can see me coming down the road! I think they are a gorgeous colour and stand out nice but definately don't look over the top.
I'm used to wearing in-ear phones so it was a bit of a shocker the first time I came to use these. They are comfortable but feel big time tight after a bit, I thought it was just me because I don't think I've ever worn cup headphones but when my mate tried them she agreed that the band holding the headphones together does hold them a bit too tight to the ears. It doesn't bother me all that much because I still prefer my in-ear phones so it's not like these really get all that much wear.
The sound from these headphones is brilliant though and I can definately see the difference when I am wearing these to when I've got my normal iPod earphones in. You can feel the cups cushioning around your ears and that holds the sound in, with these headphones you can hear and feel a bassline that you didn't even realise was in the song before putting them on!
When I'm wearing these headphones I've noticed I can turn the volume down slightly on my iPod and I'll still get an amazing sound, they feel a bit bulky because of me being used to wearing the in-ear type and when I first wore them my dad said I look like a footballer! Hope he wasn't referring to my thighs there! Anyway these are pretty dainty so at least I don't look like Jermain Defoe who wears headphones that look nearly as big as his head!
The cord on these headphones is 0.5 metres but you can extend this to 1 metre. I've never had to extend it because my iPod is normally pretty close to me but it's dead easy to do and because the cord is covered in fabric it's dead comfortable even against my bare skin and doesn't feel irritating or itchy like some plastic cords can.
The technical details mean naff all to me so all I can do really is tell you that the sound is brilliant and that they are comfortable to wear. Like I said they do get a bit tight after you've been wearing them for a while and when I was on a longish journey last weekend they actually made my ears hurt a bit after an hour but that's probably because I need to get used to wearing this style of headphones.
These are available in a few different colours, the yellow is the nicest I think though looking at them so I'm glad this was the colour I won. You can also get them in black or white for a bit more of a traditional look.
Here are the technical details if you can decipher them!
* 30mm power drivers
* 20 to 20 001 HZ
* 3.5 stereo plug
(See, it's just a list of random numbers!)
Recommended..... these headphones look cool and give an amazing sound whatever music you like to listen to!
