Music plays a huge part in my day to day and it’s something that I can’t live without. Music has so many memories tied to it in my life. It’s almost as strong of a memory jogger as the smell of food.
I have gone through headphones both on and off ear, ear buds and any maker you can think of. I need my music and I need it in the way it was meant to be heard.
Yesterday in the mail I recieved a few packages and one of them was one I had been looking forward to for a few days. I went out on a limb and ordered a cheap pari of earbuds.
With headphones, it has been my experience that you get what you pay for. The more I have spent the better quality you get. This is not necessarily the case any longer with manufacturers stepping up their games.
What arrived in the small package from the Fedex man, was a pair of headphones. A sweet looking pair of headphones. A set that came with some extra earbuds for sizing, a great built in chord wrangler and a lot better sound than one would expect from a sub 30 dollar set of earbuds.
I went with The Pop from Coloud. The Pop arrived in a sexy gray and orange (my favorite color) styling and I immediately was pleased.
What I like:
The packaging was simple, the colors were perfect, but the sound, the part you want to hear about, was pretty damn solid!
The sounds was comparable to my Monster earbuds I have that were much more expensive (around $80) and only missed a few of the lower ranges and a bit of bass.
The color offerings is always a plus in my mind. From Black and Cyan to Gray and Orange, they have over 9 different color options to choose from.
The tangle free managment system that is built into the chord is a great little bonus to keep your chord wraped up tight and out of the way.
What I Don’t Like:
I am audio freak, I like to hear everything. The Pop brings the noise for sure, but you loose a bit on the lower ranges. The bass is not there when comparing it to a much more expensive Beats by Dre but they holds their own.
The tangle free managment system is both a positive and negative. The way in which it is built is clunky when plugged into your iDevice, making it hard to handle the iPhone for sure.
For 25 dollars (or less) this is a steal. The sound is suprisingly clear and well done. The highs are crisp and even though you loose out a bit on the lows and the bass levels, these headphones are a must buy.
Stay tuned for a review of the Coloud Boom soon!
