Headphones are a necessity in a house with young children when one or both parents enjoy music styles that are not what you would consider child friendly. We are always on the look out for headphones that offer excellent quality sound, affordable price, good bass and last but not least capable of noise-cancelling.
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been putting a pair of new 808 Audio: Studio-Style Over-Ear Headphones to the test.
The 808 headphone are available in gloss black, gloss white and matte black and features a foldable design that fits perfectly inside the included case along with the two kinds of detachable cables that are included: DJ-style heavy cable and duotone tangle-free flat cable with mic.
The pair we received was the glossy white which are just so perfectly sleek looking with a silver embossed 808 on the outside of the ears.
Comfort-wise the 808s do a great job with soft leather covered foam padding over the speaker cups and on the inside of the band. They are just slightly loose fitting on me, Anthony finds that they fit him pretty perfectly though.
When it comes to sound the 808 Audio: Studio-Style Over-Ear Headphones really impressed me. For $99.99 I honestly wasn’t expecting the crisp powerful sound they are able to deliver, easily comparable audio-wise to a pair at twice the cost.
I tested these out across a variety of genres as I like to listen to everything from Reggae and Dancehall to Classic Rock to Hip Hop and even a little Country now and then. The bass is clear and loud but it also handles more complex sounds and ranges beautifully; the overall clarity is fantastic.
Now for some stats I can’t even begin to understand without googling it, but may interest some of you out there:
- Driver: 40mm (dynamic range)
- Sensitivity: 100dB
- Frequency: 20Hz – 20kHz
So the verdict? Worth every single penny, these headphones are great value thanks to the impressive sound quality they are able to offer.
808 Audio Studio-Style Over-Ear Headphones are available to purchase online at store.audiovox.com for only $99.99
