Customer Review

I tested two models of this brand for a while, and I am obliged to recognize that the price / quality ratio is impressive.
Obviously, the audio quality can not be compared to some Stereo headphones that cost 4-5 times more expensive but, nevertheless, all gives a more than adequate, well above what one would expect given the price paid.

Audio test Summary:
Beautiful deep bass, they "drool" increments and are not exaggerated as is often the case with competitors who seek to camouflage a mediocre quality.
Mediums are weaklings, it will be my biggest complaint. He sometimes has a side "reverb" is not top.
Highs are decent, not too garish although a little rough drafts when the instrumental tracks are numerous.

Methodology and audio test result:
I simply listened to songs I know by heart and gave them a note. I took as base maximum (10/10), the sound from Sennheiser HD-650 (300 euros)
London Grammar - Night Call: 8/10
Audiobook: 6/10 (worries mediums)
Shaka Ponk - Lucky Boy: 8/10
Diablo Swing Orchestra - Balrog Boogie: 8/10
Soundscape playing on Diablo2: 9/10

Battery life:
More 10am whatever some say. I fully charged and discharged two times and I did a test by launching a Spotify playlist of more than 15 hours a night. The next day, more than 10 hours later, it was still running.

Bluetooth Recognition:
I was nervous that the standard used 4.0 makes it incompatible with "old" smartphones using a lower standard. It has not happened. Recognized the first time without any hassle. I have not tested by the NFC against.
Connected carefree as on a Mac Book Pro and on a Lenovo PC over 3 years.

For me THE TOP!
This is by far the most comfortable headphones I've tested a long time. I wear glasses and often, after a few tens of minutes, the arm of the helmet ends up hurting me by force of straining on the arm of the spectacles. Here, cushions rest on the arms of the glasses without pressing them. I can really use carefree hours.

Sound insulation:
Tested in the middle of a significant noise pollution (logistics warehouse), he got away with the honors. I imagine it will be well suited to people who take public transport.
Well, obviously, this kind of cushion that does not isolate outside noise: they also insulate the air that cools the ears. After a while, you may be bothered by side "ear cup" heating. This is not linked to this particular helmet is inherent in this kind of model, regardless of the brand.

The fact that the arms fold to reduce the size is a big plus. Nevertheless, it is a pity there is no relief on the control buttons, which makes their use sometimes a little difficult but it's really a detail.
The "play" button flashes continuously when you use it. This produces a light pollution not always very nice when it is used in the dark in front of a computer screen (gamer mode).

I gilded. Nicely done, does not scratch easily. The set is not discrete but I find it rather nice and it do not bother me.

Test mobile headset fashion:
During my tests, I received several calls.
I clearly heard my interlocutors and they had not noticed that I was using a helmet before I tell them. So it's perfect. I have not tested by cons in a noisy environment to see what gave filtering out noise.

In summary:
Incredible quality / price ratio that makes it a master purchase. You will not be disappointed given the price paid, especially since it is often on sale for less than 40th. In terms of perceived quality, I would have expected to pay more than a few hundred euros.
For me, the only big flaw is too low mids. We bet that the next generations will have erased that slight quack. In all cases, a brand to watch!

To recharge it easily and quickly, I use a charging USB Hub on which I plug both my smartphone, my tablet and headphones. Load 4 times faster than the USB port of the PC. An indispensable tool for all those who, like me, have more and more things that recharge via USB.
