Affordable upgrade takes you listening experience to the next level.
There is a big fuss over headphones these days and you could say they are like tattoos; everyone wants a pair on them. People are spending hundreds, yes hundreds, of dollars on brand names, “high fidelity” or “noise cancelling” technology. I went down a different path and bought a pair of reasonably priced Sony XB400s to scratch the itch off my back and see what a “good” pair of headphones can do to your listening lifestyle.
I was thinking about spending close to $100 for a decent pair of headphones, but with these being close to $70 and hearing the quality they produce I was happy to snap these up for under $40. For the price point they are in at the moment I would struggle to find anything in comparison to these.
Having had these headphones for over a week, I’ve found them to be a vast improvement over anything I have used previously. I’m not really addicted to music so I don’t wear them in public but have them on around the house or at work. When I do use them they are clear, sharp and the bass is fully immersive.
Am I listening to music more? A tiny bit. But when I do I appreciate it more
I am still looking to get a decent set of in-ear headphones with a microphone to put into the phone when out and about.
