Speaking technically, let's start by looking at some specifications.

 

Output power: 15mW (micro watts)

 

Speaker dimension: N/A

 

Impedance: 32 ohm

 

Sensitivity: 105 db/mW

 

Cable length: 1.3m with 3.5mm stereo plug

 

Jack: stereo mini: Yes

 

Microphone: Yes

 

Frequency response: 18Hz-26KHz

 

Impedance: N/A

 

Pick-up pattern: N/A

Some of the more note worthy features include large driver coils for more dynamic bass response, milled aluminum chassis for a perfect balance of high and low frequencies, plus three sets of silicone ear caps to give the buyer that tailored feeling.

There's the use of gold plating on the plugs for the highest signal quality between devices connecting to one another. Also featured is compatibility with several of the large mobile phone brands out there. And finally, a two-year warranty, which is a nice touch, I feel.

Glancing over the specifications quickly reveals, well, not much to be precise.

 

The range of frequencies being reproduced stretches optimistically into the 'canine hearing range' which has become standard practice for companies these days.

 

And the power output is measured in 'pigeon power' because they are designed for your ear canal and not a hall full of screaming Riff Raff.

They are in fact very light as well, coming in at a ferret busting 5 grams. Obviously this is a good choice to go with the milled aluminum, because the plan to use lead would have never come off.

 

Anyway, let's move on from all this tomfoolery and find out how they actually sound.
