The sound quality is excellent, and the noise cancelling is also very good. The earbuds feel light in the ears, and I prefer these to Beats Tour, and they are much cheaper too.
Quality feels compromised to me. With the Dre Beats, they feel great quality, and even headphones cheaper than the Pioneer ones feel like better quality. The cable cannot be detached, so If it breaks, repairing the headphones will be really tricky.
I love the product, but I wish it was a little "better made" feeling. That's terrible English but my point is clear, I want these to feel like £60 earphones, as well as work like £60 earphones. The feel is OK, neither good nor bad. ... Read full review
I love the product, but I wish it was a little "better made" feeling. That's terrible English but my point is clear, I want these to feel like £60 earphones, as well as work like £60 earphones. The feel is OK, neither good nor bad. The box is excellent quality, but if they had made the earphones inside the same quality, these would be faultless. As it is these earphones get a 9/10 at the moment from me, but if they don't last very long, I certainly won't buy them again. Another thing I would like to add, is I saw a rather worrying review saying about the sound leakage from these headphones. I have found that the sound leakage is nothing to complain about, unless the volume is high, then the headphones will give out quite a bit of sound leakage; though I thought the point of noise cancelling was to reduce background noise so you don't always have to listen to music that is painfully loud to drown out the background noise; so sound leakage is not an issue for me. Areas for improvement are certainly a quality feel, and a detachable cable, as repairing the cable on normal headphones is hard, but with the noise cancelling system, this would be near impossible. These headphones don't fit real tight in the ears, but provide a very strong bass, usually unassociated with loose fitting earphones. Another area for improvement is the size of the earbud. I appreciate the technology behind these and the size is partly necessary, but the earbuds are just a tad larger than I think they could be. I love the idea of using a AAA battery, as it lasts a long time, is readily available, and I prefer it to the small button cell batteries. I use these on a bus and they work excellently. I am 17 year old product design student. This is my honest opinion, I have no external influences, and I really do like these earphones.
