Darkiron N8 Headphones with Inline Mic and Volume

Grab some on Amazon

I try a lot of products and after a while you get to the point where you think you know the quality of something before you've even tried it. Most often I'm looking at the materials it's made out of but with headphones you have to worry about sound quality too. When I tried these headphones I was genuinely surprised at both how they were made and how they sound. Even with my packed day and responsibilities I keep wanting to put them on to see if I was just imagining things. Don't misunderstand: I'm not saying they are on par with a pair that are over 100 bucks but they're certainly worth their price.

Build- These headphones pull of the rare feat of using materials that aren't anything fancy while applying them in a way that leave you still feeling like it's a quality product. Externally You'll find a soft touch plastic that makes  stylish matte look paired with a leather-esqe vinyl. This vinyl covers both the top strap as well as the ear cups and in both places holds just the right amount of padding for a comfortable fit. That soft foam on the ear cups does a surprising job of molding to your ear and blocking out external sounds. The expansion size allows for most head sizes and at it's smallest it's still small enough for a small woman's head.

Function- As I said at the beginning, you're looking at sound quality that matches at the very least budget versions of name brands. I have a pair of mid-range Sennheisers that I use all day at work and if it weren't for my preference for over-the-ear designs I'd be using these all the time. Also mentioned int eh build was the foam used as padding. I find it allows for several hours of use without making your ears start to feel it. The sound isolating ability is wonderful as well.

I don't mean to sound like I'm gushing over these but I was just not expecting to like them as much at this price point. As with all things you purchase it depends on what you're looking for; if it's High end audio you'll probably be looking elsewhere. However if the design is your style and you're just looking for good everyday sound, I highly recommend these. I received this product free in exchange for nothing more than my honest opinion.
