And we must not forget that in inserts you will hear everything around. During the trip in the subway it is unlikely to like it, but it’s better to be on a bicycle It is in these headphones.

And why is this model not worth half the price? After all, many competitors have a very low price tag. The cost is explained by two “chips.” First, the device allows you to activate Google Now or Siri from the built-in remote. Secondly, this accessory has protection against water. This is important for people who like to do jogging, no matter what the weather is outside the window.

The rest are typical liners with appropriate quality sounding. Inside them are 9.2 mm membranes, connect to a smartphone using an L-shaped plug. The cable length is 1.2 m.

Most often, devices under the brand name JBL sell for quite a lot of money, but this does not apply to the headset T205 In the case of her, the manufacturer took the path of serious saving. He used inexpensive materials from which he made body and wire of the product. He also didn’t think too much about design, borrowing the form factor from Apple. All this led to the fact that the price tag fell to 900 rubles.

JBL understood that such inexpensive headphones would definitely be be in demand. So she released at least five color options of the device – you can find both pink and yellow, and white accessory. It’s nice that even such cheap headphones got at their disposal a cover, albeit a very simple one.

As is the case with many other headsets that fall into this selection, the product is not able to boast of any kind of mount. Not here and interchangeable ear pads. If the accessory will fly out of your ears, then there is nothing to be done about it, only a feeling of resentment awaits you. AND Of course, no one will give you try on headphones before buying.

Another headphones that exist in several color options. But here it’s not the body of the “plugs” themselves that is painted, but cable. It can be yellow, black, blue, red or white. The remote control will have a similar color.

Since an accessory has a remote control, it should also have a microphone. it logical assumption. Model called Sony MDR-XB50AP can really be used as a headset. Problematic it turns out only a conversation in a noisy place – it is possible that in this the interlocutor will complain that he really can’t to take you apart.

The weight of these headphones is 8 g. There are no mounts here, but there are four pairs of interchangeable ear pads. It seems that with using so many of them, you can adjust the headset to any the ears. The product also included neodymium magnets. Storage accessory in the case will slightly increase the service life. By the way, Sony made very durable headphones – about any Malfunctions in reviews are mentioned extremely rarely. But then people say that the headphones quickly peel off the designer coating. However, for most buyers this is completely do not give a damn – they buy this model not in order to show off by someone.

The sensitivity of these headphones is 106 dB. That is, a very loud sound awaits you. No wonder, because it is published 12 mm membranes. As for the cable, it is symmetrical. In his pocket, he practically does not get confused, which he cannot but to please, but its length is 1.2 m. But the remote upsets.

Very inexpensive “plugs” with a standard appearance. Perhaps this could end the description of this product. But let’s get acquainted with the headphones a little more.

This model is sold in Russian stores for only 1000 rubles, and sometimes cheaper. It’s clear that for that kind of money you don’t Get a universal accessory without any flaws. In particular, you can find fault with the lack of a microphone here. If they call you, you have to pull the smartphone out of your pocket to bring it to your mouth. But then it allowed the manufacturer not to save on speakers. The diameter of each membrane was only 9 mm, but the creators of the headphones squeezed everything possible out of this size. Sensitivity reached 106 dB, which will definitely please anyone a man who loves listening to music at high volume.

It is felt that the manufacturer has conjured over quality sounding. Of course, every instrument in an orchestral composition is not hear, this requires at least two-driver headphones, but music doesn’t turn into a “mess” either.

The sound comes to the accessory through a standard wire, whose length does not exceed 1.2 m. It turned out to be very thin, in In this connection, the cable starts to get tangled in your pocket.

Often on sale you can find a couple of color options the same headphones. But the creators of the JBL E55BT went further: this The model can be painted in one of five colors. Children should become interested in a blue or red headset, while adults people most often buy a white or black version.

Looking at the price tag, I don’t feel like calling these headphones budgetary. However, this is the most inexpensive full-size option among wireless models. Connecting to a smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0, the range will be equal to about five meters. These headphones fully charge in just two hours. As for the battery life, then the manufacturer claims as much as 20 hours of sound! In practice, the result it will not be so impressive, but it’s not enough to call it exactly not allowed.

I’m glad that the headphones can be used in wired mode, using a bundled cable with a fabric braid. it helps out when the headset suddenly discharges. Also only with wire can maximum quality be achieved sounding. And it is very not bad. Like it or not, but 50 mm membranes show themselves much better than miniature analogues, which are endowed with “gags” and inserts.

Does this model have any disadvantages? Of course, without them not cost, because the manufacturer had to save in every way. The most annoying are the creaks emitted by the headphones when they wearing. Such sounds cannot be called unpleasant, but because of them It seems that the product is about to break. Also used here control buttons, poorly distinguishable to the touch. Finally, not all will arrange a weight of 231 g. Of course, there are heavier headphones, but they usually target the rarer use, while the JBL E55BT position themselves as hiking model.

Advantages

  • A large number of body colors to choose from;
  • There is a microphone;
  • It can be used in Bluetooth mode;
  • The cable has a fabric braid;
  • Good sound quality
  • Long battery life;
  • There is a volume control.

Another full-sized headphones. But they already belong to half open type. This means that somewhere in the metro they use will be difficult – you will be disturbed by others noise. But the product has excellent speakers. Membranes 50 mm in diameter have an extended sound range, and the harmonic coefficient here does not exceed 0.3%. The flip side there is a lot of such speakers – scales under the headphones show 222

Unlike the previous instance, Axelvox The HD242 is a headset, not a headset. Also, this model is not has such a rich color palette – on store shelves there is only a black version. But you are unlikely to remember these flaws when you put the device on your ears. The fact is that This accessory has great sound. Not perfect of course but it feels like the manufacturer supplied the wire for good reason gold plated connectors. It, by the way, can be disconnected. But Bluetooth is missing here, so listen to music in Wireless mode will not work. Disconnecting the cable comes in handy at cases of replacing it, transporting the headphones and shortening it. Yes, the length of the standard cord is such that you may want to use the shorter wire, which is also available in complete!

The sensitivity of this model is 98 dB. Connection cable – one-way. There is an adapter in the box with the device, thanks to which the headphones are easily connected to professional equipment requiring a 6.3 mm jack. You can also note the use of neodymium in the accessory magnets. All this leads us to conclude that this is one of best purchases for 3 thousand rubles. And if you can get such headphones are cheaper, then your luck will be envy!

  • Gold-plated connectors are used;
  • Easy transportation;
  • Good sound quality

KOSS UR40

These headphones have a catchy design. But one cannot but admit that for the sake of this the manufacturer had to make a headband very thin, which can cause it to malfunction if the headphones fall from high enough height. If you are sloppy by the user, it is best to consider some other model.

The creators of this device tried to achieve a simplified transportation. As a result, their creation got everything 173 gram weight. The flip side of the coin is a modest cup thickness. No sound insulation is out of the question here – Headphones are open. Also in the Koss UR40 there is no microphone, which also upset someone.

This model is wired. The headband here consists only of plastic, so the cable comes out of both cups. Disconnect it impossible, therefore, its replacement will be very difficult. Length the wire is 1.2 m. Its shortening is definitely not for you required, but the opposite problem is easily solved by purchase extension cord. I am glad that the cable received a gold-plated connector. Not it is possible that it was thanks to him that the harmonic coefficient decreased up to 0.2%.

The sensitivity of these headphones is 98 dB. Of stock the volume is enough in the vast majority of cases. But not with connecting the accessory to an ordinary smartphone. The fact is that this the model has a 60 ohm impedance. To really “pump” such headphones, you need equipment with an amplifier. Must be that is why the manufacturer is completing the Koss UR40 adapter with 6.3 mm jack.

Advantages

  • Built-in neodymium magnets;
  • Extremely high sensitivity;
  • The kit includes an adapter for 6.3 mm;
  • Light weight;
  • Very low harmonic distortion;
  • The plug is gold plated;
  • High-quality assembly.

disadvantages

  • Quite simple soundproofing;
  • The cable does not disconnect;
  • Two-way wire mounting will not suit everyone;
  • Very great resistance;
  • No microphone;
  • The wire is a little short.

For example, the SVEN AP-B550MV is a good looking headphone that They also have a Bluetooth module. And all this for 1500 rubles or a little expensive!

The manufacturer understood that his headset would not use record demand. Therefore, he released only one color option. And you can easily guess which one.

Headphones are full sized. Inside each calyx located one 40 mm speaker. How can you I guess there is a volume margin, but you can’t call it high. The manufacturer has opted for cheap speakers, as well as him I had to supply my creation with a battery. All this led to that the weight of the accessory has increased to 225 g.
