Never underestimate the power of studio mastered sound. These Galactic Empire headphones have a high-shine black finish with black leather cushions and red stitching. The ear caps feature a raised emblem of the Galactic Empire's iconic Imperial insignia in gloss read. Give yourself to the dark side.
Go Where the Music Takes You
If durability is your thing, the STREET by 50 on-ear headphones are for you. Created from a custom polymer plastic, the shatterproof UFP adjustable headband is known for its strength and flexibility, so these headphones are ready to take a beating. With a detachable cord (with three-click microphone) for tangle-free street-wear and transport, plus enhanced bass and ultra plush memory foam leather ear pads, STREET by 50 headphones ensure a comfortable ride no matter where your music takes you.

+ Compact with ear cups that fold inwards and fit nicely into a neat little carrying case. Excellent for travelling!
+ Well balanced sound quality. Not too tinny with the treble and not overwhelming with the bass.
+ Decent passive noise isolation. Ear cups sit around your ears, not on them. This forms a seal which is great at blocking noise and good if you're not a fan of current in-ear noise isolation headphones.
+ Nice packaging with some nifty extras like stickers, poster, cleaning cloth etc.
+ Audio cable controls are easy to use and manipulate.
+ Officially licensed Star Wars product.
+ Sleek look and design that's simply plug and play.
- Uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. I have a smaller than average head and wear glasses but after 30 minutes the ear cups I was really starting to feel the pressure.
- For the high price point the sound quality is mediocre. Not completely disappointing, but you definitely won't be wowed either.
- Steep list price of $199 which I feel is too much for what you're getting.
- Build quality consists mainly of plastic and synthetic which is a bit disappointing considering the price tag.
- No Bluetooth or wireless capability.Read more ›
Construction wise they're pretty alright. Seem well-made, fold up small, fit in the football-shaped case that's included. The cord is removable (good), but can only be plugged into the left ear (less good). The Star Wars branding is really nicely done, and the swag is ok I suppose, but none of that means a thing if you can't get good use out of the headphones, and there are two reasons that just wasn't happening for me.
First, they just aren't very comfortable. The band over the top is thinly padded and the cups are on the small size, making the grippiness intrude on the listening experience.
Second, the sound is just nowhere near where it should be for a set of headphones like this. The upper mids are strong, but bass and lower mids are muddy and lack definition. The high end is attenuated, making it sound like a cloth has been tossed between the cups and my ears when I compare it to other sets I have on hand (Sennheiser HD580s and Pioneer SE-MX9s which I'll be reviewing when I'm finished with this piece). The one nice thing I can say is they are extremely efficient, making it no problem to use a portable music device to drive them sufficiently.
In the end though, as much as I'd like to love them, it looks like all the care went into making a package they could sell to Star Wars fans rather than important things like long-term comfort and sound quality.
But do these headphones do my ears and music justice?
Right now my arsenal consists of some Sound Blasters I use for my computer and my trusty ol' Sennheisers which I've had since 2007 (the selfsame headphones with which I used to help me jump from Apple), along with Monoprice ear buds I keep at work. I'm not the most professional audiophile, but I sure as heck can tell some differences in quality, especially if the sound source is in FLAC.
Unfortunately, I'm not the most ecstatic about SMS Audio's STREET by 50, especially at the higher premium for Star Wars branding.
I've always been wary of celebrity-endorsed products; never trying Beats, I've been bombarded by them on the streets of Chicago by the candy-colored headbands on people's heads. I've always wondered about their integrity, until a fellow flesh-and-blood audiophile renounced them after she had used her ATH -M50s for some time. I took her word for it and never considered using Beats.
But me, being the Star Wars fanatic, had to try the SMS Audio. When they arrived I admit I was impressed by the fancy packaging. For $200, the headphones arrived looking like it.
They came in a slipcased box that was a little difficult to remove as the vacuum-sealed enclosure proved a tough fit, but they open up sweetly after that.
There are some nice manuals that come with, along with some neat little Star Wars stickers and papers.Read more ›
