I was afraid that these would sound like Beats By Dre, but was surprised at how much nicer they sound. Bass if very full, but much tighter than Beats and not so much in the forefront. Highs and mids sound good to my ears so far and I haven't done a burn in yet. I'm getting excellent volume from my phone, so it doesn't take a ton to drive them well.
They're very attractive and comfortable. Piano gloss looks great with Monster logo on side and Nokia logo on metal band on the inside. They're not audiophile quality, but they are very nice and portable which is important to me.
The packaging is exceptional and truly representative of the overall quality of the headphones. One surprise was the semi-flexible hard travel case that is included. The case is zippered and easily holds the folded phones for protection.
The Nokia Purity Headset is a quality piece both in terms of looks and construction. Though made with some plastic, they are nicely finished and at least at the onset look to be long lasting given proper care. Two separate cords are included. Be sure to use the one with the audio controls for your electronics. I have read where the "other" cord supplied is for legacy Nokia products/cell phones only.
I have used the headphones with the aforementioned Lumia 1020, iPad Mini and varied other electronics. Sound out of the box is terrific and gets even better with a progressed burn-in. After a few days of regular use, the sound for the money is fantastic, a perfect balance for my kind of music. Not too much of this and too little of that ... they are nicely balanced. Please note well: the cord controls in my experience so far only function properly (being able to adjust volume up and down and answer telephone calls) with my Nokia Windows Phone 1020. They work fine with other audio products (including Apple iPad and iPhone) for listening to music, playing movies, etc. Bottom line, same rich sound but without control from the headphone cable.
Concerning noise/music bleed and isolation from noise. There is NO bleed. The phones isolate the "outside" noise very well but not totally, but darn good.Read more ›
Some people have been upset about one of the two included cables not producing quality sound. I found it hard to believe that Nokia and/or Monster would put out a product that would experience problems with something as simple as a cable. With a little effort I found the answer: The cables are fine! Now let me explain.
There are currently no defined standards for audio jacks on phones. Most jacks are using the 4 contact TRRS (tip, ring 1, ring 2, sleeve). On older Nokia, Samsung and Sony phones ring 2 = mic and sleeve = ground. On newer phones the mic and ground are reversed. This causes only mono (not stereo) sound to pass through when using incompatible connectors.
Reading the included manual (I know, who reads instructions for headphones) it specifically states that the cable without controls is, "...Nokia AV compatible with legacy Nokia phones with a 3.5mm plug."
Nokia included the other cable in case someone wanted to use the headphones with a phone using the older standard, not so that people had two cables to choose from.
I might not be an expert when it comes to Sound Quality. But this headphone surprisingly exceed my expectation. The bass is very tight, it covers the high pretty well but not much in mid range. The Treble frequency is very sharp and bright and so you can expect very detailed sound. But, character like this is to my liking. They have much better sounding. The staging covers very wide kind of sound and it has nice separation
Having used Sennheiser HD 238 for years. Nokia Purity HD is an upgrade for me. Even when compared with legendary Grado SR60i. Nokia Purity still offer a pretty competitive fight and I think Nokia Purity wins a slight inch. And let's not talking about Beats Solo HD. I have tried Solo HD for once and that is one of the worst headphone I have ever wear. Coming from the same company and offer a similar price doesn't make them the same. Nokia Purity HD is so much better than Solo HD and only slightly lose against Studio HD
The Build Quality is very good. Not too stury since it made from plastic, but still very nice and elegant. The color is very bright, pretty much suit my bright personality. And what I like the most from this headphone is that, it can be folded. It saves space and I can bring it to me easily together with the case.
With the price of $ 136, I'm not saying this is the best headphone for the price. There is many headphone that sounds better than Nokia Purity HD in the same price range. But if you have Nokia Lumia, loves music, and appreciates portability, this one is pretty much for you.
