If you're often travelling on public transport or on the plane, it's likely that you have a pair of quality audio accessories that always make the trip with you. For those who aren't a fan of in-ear products and are looking for a little more extended comfort and extra noise-cancellation, Noontec has designed and released its Zoro II HD with you in mind.
The Zoro II is priced in the middle ground of most quality name-brand travel accessories, offering you general comforts like a handy fold-able design, detachable cable and leather to contact softly with your head.
Would I trust this product with my trusty ears on a train ride into university or long-haul flight to a technology expo? Well, I've already taken it on one of those things, so read on below.
Featuring plush synthetic leather ear cups and a smooth thin leather headband, comfort is one of the first things that comes to mind when you're looking at something for travel. Weighing in at 5.7 ounces (164 grams), it's around half of what you would expect for general gamer-grade headsets - as most use on their home PCs.
Connected through a single and removable 3.5mm jack and cable (with in-built microphone), the 30mm drivers provide you with a 13~26,000 Hz frequency response, a 180 dB sensitivity at 1 Khz 1mW and a maximum power of 60mW.
The cable is long enough for most, rated at 1.2M, flat in design and feels rubberized. I haven't had any issues so far of the cable being hopelessly tangled when stored at home or in the carry bag.
The headphones claim to be noise cancelling, however, it seems that there is no active noise cancelling technology happening here, they're just able to clock out noise due to their on-ear design.
Pricing & Availability
Checking out Amazon, we found the Noontec Zoro II HD foldable headphones listed for #99.99 at the time of writing.
What's in the box?
Featuring the suede carry case, detachable 1.2m flat rubberized cable and user manual, once again, it's quite a simple package and is what you should expect for such an item.
The carry pouch feels nice and is quite soft, which will help keep the shiny headband and structure on this product clean, fresh and free of scratches. This is coupled with the great detachable cable - due to its flat design I've had no tangling issues when it's curled up and stored inside the bag.
The package is light and small, meaning when ordered online your shipping costs should be greatly reduced when compared to other products.
