Altec Lansing Titanium noise isolating earphones

Customer Reviews

The sound quality is very good.
Terico
The problem appeared to be a break in the wiring inside the cloth covering.

I've owned 2 pairs of these that both went bad within a few months.

[12/9/12 These phones continue to perform with the best IEM phones ever made, remaining among my favorites. I'm noticing that increasingly cables are becoming thinner and flimsier dB Logic EP-100 Earbud Headphones (Green), resulting in excessive kinks and even "unknotting" prior to each use. Moreover, the intrusive unmusical interference of these extremely lightweight cables exceeds, by far, the rubbing or bouncing sounds that so many reviewers found objectionable about the Altec UHP326 Backbeat Titaniums, which remain among the top 3 IEM phones I've heard--whether listening to finely nuanced chamber music or the most fully textured orchestral passages of symphonic music.]

Original Review:

These are the headphones that the leading consumer's magazine recently rated above phones (full-sized and "in-ear" style) listing at 3-4 times the price. First of all, lest there be any confusion (though Amazon has apparently fixed the problem), these phones formerly were being listed on separate Amazon pages (and at different prices) as the Altec 326 and the Altec 326NP. The 326 claimed to use "Ultimate Ears" technology whereas no mention of that was made with the 326NP. ("Ultimate Ears" is the company that makes true audiophile IEM phones at ultra-high prices.) Some quick research yielded the conclusion that the two Altecs listed on different pages are the same headphones--from the cloth-mesh cable to the noise-isolation feature to the 8-piece fit kit and, above all, to the "Titanium-enhanced speakers." Altec's website confirms it: there's only one set of "Backbeat Titanium" earphones.

The Altec Titaniums are mid-priced, excellent-sounding earphones.

Pro: The sound on these is great. I work in an office in noisy manufacturing plant, and the noise canceling works good too. BUT...

Con: The wire is covered in a stiff weaved sheath. Any time I move and sheath drags on the collar of my shirt (or anything else) it transmits a LOT of noise directly to the ear buds. It is LOUD. I would not have bought these if I could have tested them before buying.

If you don't move around alot, they are great. If you are constantly turning you head they are not.

These are the best sounding earbuds I have ever owned. The noise passive noise cancellation is great, you can work in peace and quiet and not hear the people in the next cube, or the 9000 times the phone rings while they prance around the office.

The ONLY con is the sheath for the wires. They used a tough fabric to protect the wire, but the problem is the noise that is transmitted up the line to the earbuds can be a bit much.

(I wrote this same review for the regular UHP326 headphones, but I have owned both this UHP326NP version and the other one. Ordered my first pair from Electronics Expo. Couldn't tell you the difference between the two though. So if you get deja vu while reading this that's why.)

First off I'd like to start by saying that the sound was way more balanced and clear than the 4 other different earphones I've owned, you can't beat the sound quality for the price (especially if you get it in the $25-$35 price range.) Even at $50 it's a good deal for how great the sound is. The fact that it comes with a case and multiple sizes of earbuds for precision fitting makes it even more of a value. I've had a couple of Skullcandies and some Sony's that were less than stellar and distorted the sound/bass at higher volumes, so these were a welcome upgrade for me.

But that's pretty much where all the good things end. I've owned 2 pairs of these that both went bad within a few months. The sound started going in and out, changing in volume, and went completely out in one ear of the first pair I had. If a cat hadn't chewed up my first pair after it went out I would've probably tried to exchange it, but instead I tried 2 other earphones before breaking down and buying another pair of the UHP326s. It's now been a little over 4 months and this new pair has started giving out as well. Keep in mind that I've bought 6 earphones at this point so I've spent some money, so that means I was very careful with this pair in particular. I always stored it in it's pouch wrapped up carefully (I'm a dj so I've been wrapping wires for a long time, so no stress on the cords from that.

At first I was a little hesitant at picking up this pair of earphones primarily because of the wire cloth. Not anymore. I was blown away by the sound that was being delivered by this incredible headset. From power ballads to infused shake the paint off the wall numbers, this product delivered the music full throttle. To be perfectly honest, I just didn't think that Altec Lansing could pull it off.

Marked with left/right ear ID, the internal wiring is coated/insulated with something that I have not seen in quite some time. 46 inches of tangle free wire cloth. There is noise pickup from the coating, however it was not that big of a deal for me. I like the wire cloth over the usual tangled mess of comparable products.

My mp3 players and laptop all paired well with the UHP326NP headset without any issues. Noise isolation was on point. These guys bring it on with a pair of titanium enhanced micro speakers that do an above average job of balancing bass and treble. The enriched sound literally speaks volumes.

The UHP326NP headphones come packed with (8) ear tips in sizes S, M, & L that scored high on the comfort meter. A set of dual flange extra noise reduction tips also come attached to the unit. Altec added a nice, soft round zip case as part of the package as well. This headset carries the standard 2 year Altec Lansing/Plantronics warranty.

This model comes close to outclassing my high end and overpriced headset. Once a force in wall to wall sound, Altec Lansing is definitely on its way back. Even with the wire cloth coating, the UHP326NP headset is undoubtedly one of the sweetest surprises in electronics. As a musician and consumer this product goes the distance for me.
