Very nice bass, good price, isolate noice but average treble/tweeter
Jul 26, 2010
Lift Audio Groove Noise-Isolating In-Ear Headphone delivers very nice bass quality as they advertised/intended to do, and also provide good noise isolating. Having said that they fell short in the treble/tweeter area (for higher frequency), unless I'm getting a bad copy. The standard Apple Ipod headphone has better/crisper treble than Lift Audio Groove but the Lift Audio Groove bass is much more superior. I would recommend this headphone if you are looking for a spare headphone or if you are primarily listening to music with not much treble requirement (rock/metal/techno etc), but if you listen to music which value treble quality (like jazz, big band, blues, instrumental, easy listening, pop, classical music), this headphone is probably not for you (i.e. I wouldn't recommend). Before buying this headphone, you should also consider the skullcandy and the JVC gummy headphones.
Pros: 1. Very nice bass quality (which is what they are going after and achieved nicely) 2. Isolate noise (not noise canceling however) 3. In ear design 4. Very good price 5. Comfortable to wear (comes with the 3 size soft silicone fittings)
Cons: 1. Average treble/tweeter sound quality (for higher frequency) 2. Except the metal portion, the construction feels a bit flimsy 3. No left and right distinction/marking
Warning, I'm going to be brutally honest. So if you're the CEO of this company, you may want to skip this review because it may hurt your feelings. Ok, here it goes: These headphones are very 'average'. I didn't expect much for a pair of headphones in this price range... and yet, they were still a bit disappointing. I would describe them as only slightly better than a pair of cheap headphones that you'd get for free with an MP3 player. I have a hard time recommending these … more
