Pumping beats

 

I listen to an extremely wide variety of music - lately I've been getting in a lot on the rap game along with extending my love for hardstyle. Thankfully both of these have one main thing in common - Bass!

Listening to some hammering reverse-bass thanks to Audiofreq's Warcry, this headset performed extremely well. The same was to be said for something a little more melodic like Down Down by Noisecontrollers, which features a lot more mid and treble sounds to help test out the full range. There were a few small parts where the sound was slightly muffled, but for $42.99 (at the time of writing), I have seriously never tried a headset even close to this quality, let alone better.

 

 

Even putting this device on my friends head and pumping the volume to 100%, not only did they agree that quality was crisp, but there was next-to-no sound-leak whatsoever. Meaning not only will your beats not annoy other public transport commuters, but their screaming children won't annoy you either.

 

 

Mellowing out

 

Jumping over to the other side of the scale, I fired up Spotify and launched my playlist titled "Chill out, Man." Filled with some of my favourite bands and solo artists like Pink Floyd, Chet Faker and Rufus, the ARCTIC P614 BT blew my expectations out the water, yet again.

 

 

Now you're not going to get the same experience as a $200 pair of AKG cans, but for sub-$50, I'll say it again - I've never heard anything come anywhere close to the quality that these put out for the price.

 

As for distance ratings, I was able to walk out of my house and 10 feet up my driveway before I encountered any kind of stutter in music - alongside even being able to walk to my kitchen and grab a glass of water with my phone still being paired, sitting on my desk and playing music.
