I do know that I’m not alone within the hunt for an ideal pair of headphones at Unicorn costs. Regardless of not being an audiophile, I do love films, music, audio-books and tv. Extra particularly, I really like the power to observe what I would like, once I need. I’ve been looking for a pair of reasonably priced over-ear headphones and was excited to attempt the newest providing from Wicked Audio. The Wicked Audio Enix Over-Ear headphones arrived in a vibrant 7 5/Eight inches extensive by Eight 5/Eight inches tall by three three/Eight inches thick retail package deal. The duvet showcased the black Wicked earphones alongside eight key options: 10-hour battery (Will get you thru the day), Palms-Free Telephone Chat, Complete Ear Protection (Cozy for all day put on), Collapsible, Folds Flat, Enhanced Bass, Mic & Monitor Management and Quantity Management. Alongside the underside of the duvet, you will see that a white part with eight icons: Bluetooth, Collapsible, Excessive Constancy, Enhanced Bass, Rechargeable, Flat-Folding, Mic and Monitor Management, and Complete Ear Protection. The colourful background offered a contemporary really feel and a way of free/careless wild power. The proper aspect of the field was emblazoned with daring white textual content “Full-SIZE BLUETOOTH HEADPHONE WIRELESS” upon a flat black background. The left panel showcased the identical options as the duvet, utilizing daring white shapes/icons. Beneath the seven icons, Wicked included an inventory of the gadgets included inside the field. You possibly can anticipate a journey bag, AUX cable, Micro USB to USB-A cable and the Enix Headset. The highest panel listed the Enix identify and the Bluetooth/Wi-fi nature of the headset upon an extremely colourful base. The reverse panel, colourful as the duvet, displayed an overview picture of the earphones, repeated the options described on the duvet and left panel but in addition listed most of the product specs. In case you are on the lookout for a Bluetooth Four.zero, 10-hour battery life, 1.5 hour cost time headphones with full 20Hz-20kHz vary and 40mm Neodymium drivers, the Enix would be the gadget for you.
Often a fan of redundancy, I used to be just a little stunned that the white backside panel offered almost similar info to the duvet, again and left aspect panels. I liked the colour scheme and the recent, trendy, fashionable background. Returning to the duvet, carry the magnetic flap to seek out a picture of a beautiful younger lady, jean jacket and Enix headphones upon the internal flap. Utilizing the identical clashing scheme across the picture, Wicked did a very good job framing the consumer and offering a sensible expectation of how they might look upon your head. The fortune cookie-esque phrases across the picture have been pointless, for my part. The perfect a part of the packaging was the clear window displaying the black depraved headphones upon the black plastic tray. Apparently, the plain colours have been pleasing and contrasted the colourful body/background. The highest and backside panels have been glued and can tear whenever you open them. I slid the skinny plastic tray out of the packaging, set the 6.97 ouncesheadphones apart and reviewed the equipment. I used to be happy to discover a 9 half inches vast by 9 1/2 inches tall nylon drawstring bag, with purple drawstring and a centralized three three/Eight inch Wicked emblem. The pink outer circle contained a purple “W” that jogged my memory of the offspring of the Wilson and Maserati logos. Surrounding the brand, the corporate offered details about the e-mail (wickedaudio.com), “Headphones that Rock, Wicked Audio Inc., Basement Born – 94’.”
Along with the bag, I discovered a beneficiant, 32 1/2 inches lengthy USB-A to USB-Micro cable, a 59 1/Four inches lengthy three.5mm to three.5mm AUX cable and an eight-panel instruction guide. The primary web page offered a helpful desk detailing the button features. A single press of the telephone button performed/paused/answered/hung up, a fast press of the quantity button modified the monitor ahead/backward, and an extended press of the quantity button modified the quantity up/down. The second panel offered the identical specs because the again of the packaging and pages three/Four listed the product troubleshooting. The reverse panels detailed find out how to pair the earphones and an in depth diagram of the left/proper earpieces The decrease part of the left earpiece housed the micro USB charging port and the decrease proper earpiece held the microphone, on/off button, LED indicator, three.5mm AUX enter port, multi-function button, quantity down/earlier monitor and quantity up/subsequent monitor.
Earlier than utilizing the headset, I adopted the instruction guide and charged the earphones with the included micro-USB to USB-A cable, utilizing a normal iPhone charging brick. After about 30 minutes, I discovered I used to be capable of freely check the Enix Headphones. To pair the headphones, merely slide the facility toggle to the on place and the LED will flash pink/blue. Navigate to settings, Bluetooth, after which select “Wicked Enix” from the listing. A feminine voice will announce “connected,” and the decrease LED will slowly flash blue. I used to be extremely impressed with the speed of Bluetooth connection and the power to take care of the connection. Some units click on/pulse as you progress your physique or stroll into a special room. The Enix headphones didn’t do this; as an alternative, they remained related all the time, with out distortion. The highest of the headphones had a three/Eight inches thick padding alongside the highest that spanned a lot of the headband. Every of the oval-shaped ear cups measured three three/Eight inches tall by three inches extensive and 5/Eight extensive of padding. The inside lining of the ear cup was lined with pink felt, persevering with the purple/black shade scheme. Every earpiece had its personal swive, which allowed them to pivot up/down. Moreover, every earcup had a hinge and a secondary swivel to show the earphones flat. You would rotate every ear cup 90 levels counterclockwise and 45 levels clockwise. The area between the scarf and the hinge housed an expandable part that added an additional inch of size. The scarf was snug, compressed to suit my head and the earcups did the identical. I used to be happy with the general really feel of the headphones however discovered that the padding within the earcups made a bizarre squeak each time I moved. Different reviewers have commented upon the light-weight really feel and thought it made them low cost. On the contrary, this makes them moveable and straightforward to throw right into a bag/gear. I’ve used these over the previous month, they usually have carried out again and again. They charged properly in about 2 hours and offered me a few hours of listening every night time in the course of the week. I typically cost my units between makes use of, so I by no means get to the top of their battery life. This time, I listened for about 2 hours per night time and located that I nonetheless had energy left Saturday am. I didn’t allow them to utterly energy off. As described within the guide, the underside of the left cup housed the charging port, and the fitting cup had the plastic quantity up/down, name/play/pause button and the facility toggle. Happy with the match/really feel, I turned to the sound.
I do know I’m not alone that I would like probably the most sound on the lowest worth. Turning to audiocheck.internet, I used the Low-Frequency Response and Subwoofer Audio Check (10-200 Hz), and the Excessive-Frequency Response and Listening to Audio Check (22-Eight kHz) to check the vary of the gadget. I used to be capable of hear sound right down to 20Hz and as much as 15kHz, which is the vary of my listening to. As we age, we lose our higher vary of listening to, and by maturity, we can’t hear a lot over 15kHz. Utilizing the Left/Proper Stereo Audio Check, I discovered that the channels have been programmed appropriately. Utilizing the Stereo Notion and Sound Localization check with the “Original Binaural Recording,” it appeared that the corporate considered staging. If in case you have not tried the Stereo notion check, I might advocate that you simply put on brown pants. The higher the headphones, the higher the experience. The Enix handed the check however didn’t blow me away. As soon as the audiocheck.internet testing was accomplished, I turned to my regular earphone analysis tracks. I wish to begin with Holly Cole “Train Song,” to understand the bounding stand-up baseline. The rhythmic percussive really feel, mixed with the sultry voice of the singer to create an fulfilling listening experience. Subsequent, I turned to Cee Lo Inexperienced “Bright Lights Bigger City,” the theme to “Beverly Hills Cop,” Jokers Theme “Why So Serious” from the Darkish Knight Rises, the opening scene from Star Wars Episode II Assault of the clones and numerous alternatives from Gladiator. To check the higher sounds and mix, I like to make use of instrumental soundtracks corresponding to Far and Away, Braveheart, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, John Phillips Sousa Marches and a number of choices from John Williams. I discovered that the highs have been much less interesting than most and lacked heat/fullness. The quantity was effective however one thing was lacking from the higher finish that I couldn’t fairly pinpoint. To check the stereo nature of the headphones, I like to make use of Queen “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and to check the standard/staging I like to make use of Yosi Horikawa “Bubbles” and “Wandering.” As famous above, it was troublesome to pinpoint the place the sound was coming from and it virtually appeared hole. Michael Jackson “Thriller” and Depeche Mode “People are People” have been satisfying but missing. Lastly, with the Christmas Season upon us, I listened to Pentatonix, House Free, Anthem Lights and lots of basic Christmas songs as properly. My pre-teen niece picked them up and tried them out and favored them, as did my nine-year-old son. Personally, it’s troublesome to offer a very truthful perspective, when I’ve examined different superior value/high quality units.
All through my testing, I discovered the optimum listening quantity to be about Four-5 clicks on my iPhone. I’m not a fan of units that use lengthy presses to vary the quantity. That is clunky, and also you lose a number of management over the quantity. If you wish to make small quantity modifications, on-the-fly, you can’t do this simply with out altering it in your sensible gadget. Once I elevated the quantity, there was extra sound, nevertheless it was not harsh, or out of stability. Sadly, I by no means acquired the nice and cozy, full sound I used to be anticipating. A number of of the headphones I’ve examined beforehand had codex points inflicting audio/visible distortion. To check this, I watched films on Films Anyplace, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube. Just like different units, YouTube has a bizarre audio/video sync drawback. I used to be happy with the opposite video streaming sources and didn’t experience any points. The earphones have been snug, coated my ears, and offered a small quantity of background noise discount. I don’t sometimes like to make use of over-ear type headphones in mattress as I can’t lie on my aspect. Nevertheless, the profile on this pair of headphones appeared to work higher than most. The one different adverse that I discovered was when the music or video was stopped/paused. When there was no sound output, there was an annoying excessive pitched pulsing sound audible from the left earpiece. I attempted powering on/off the gadget, syncing/re-syncing the gadget and this didn’t change something. I needed to see if others had an analogous experience to mine and I landed on a properly completed, but very unfavorable, assessment by Mick Symons. I appreciated the eye to element, and I discovered that our experiences have been very comparable. I assumed that he ripped the earcup off of the earpiece, however alas, a mild tug on the earcup will take away the overlying foam. Just like the included cheaply made, on-ear type, earphones of the previous, I used to be displeased with the product. I disagree with Mick Symons concerning the hinges, nevertheless, as these felt as strong as different equally priced units available on the market. The ear cups needed to be the most important disappointment, nevertheless. I hate to offer unfavourable evaluations, however there are different units such because the Tribit XFree Tune headphones that present higher options at a lesser worth. The inventive flare inside the packaging was superb, the Bluetooth connection was spectacular, the look was spectacular, the cables have been a pleasant bonus, however the construct undoubtedly requires further consideration.
