Weight is pretty good balancing quality without it feeling like you are holding a brick on your head. The earpieces are comfortable but they get pretty warm after about 20 min of use. I think after a couple of hours they would be tedious to wear. Sound quality is impressive but not amazing. Warm, balanced, but at high volumes I noticed distortion. The bluetooth is fantastic, pairs incredibly fast and I cannot tell a difference in sound quality from using bluetooth vs the wired connection. There is a delay however when trying to match up audio to video with the bluetooth, but I suppose that's to be expected.
There are quite a few buttons and ports on the headphones, and the player controls can be problematic to control on the headphones themselves but not a big deal. Noise canceling is good, but not noticeably better than a typical Bose headset. Personally, the noise canceling makes me feel a little motion sick after a while especially if I don't have audio playing. The audio quality on phone calls is very good, and was told that I could clearly be heard as well.
Overall, I am quite happy. Good value for the money, but better can be found for a little more coin. Definitely one of the better looking sets of headphones I have seen for sometime.
It is now August 2016. I paid $299 for these in August 2014. They recently just stopped working. When you turn them on, they turn themselves off immediately. I contacted Phiaton customer service and never heard back. The price is much lower now due to improvement in technology and steep competition, but I would not buy these again, let alone for $300. Be warned. THEY DON'T LAST AND PHIATON DOESN'T STAND BEHIND THEM !
After using a pair of RHA SA950i headphones for over two years, I decided I wanted to step up to a more fully-featured pair. My requirements were:
- Active noise cancelling
I assumed sound quality was a given for headphones in this range
This set looked to cover all those bases, so I ordered them. My summer use case is working in an office, spending a fair portion of my time listening to music, but I've got a couple more years of school, where they'll be used for studying. My first impressions were good. Nice design, solid sound, paired easily with my phone, and the noise cancelling seemed to stop low-frequency noises alright. The more familiar I became with them though, the worse I regarded them.
We'll start with the most damning of its flaws. When the noise cancelling is activated, there's a low-frequency, "whoof" sound that's extremely bothersome, and prompted me to turn off the ANC right after turning it on the majority of the time. Sometimes I didn't notice it, but most of the time I did. Just to add to its poor ANC qualities, there's a very audible hiss/static when it's activated. I know this is a typical issue with lower quality ANC headphones (i.e., not Bose), but it's far worse than on the Plantronics. Without usable ANC, these headphones' price point is no longer warranted.
Let's move onto comfort. This is also much worse than I expected. My old headphones would get slightly uncomfortable after wearing for an hour or so, as they were on-ear phones that clamped fairly tightly. These too, are on-ear, but they get uncomfortable after probably 40 minutes, and your ears take longer to recover, as they are much heftier. After wearing these for a couple weeks, I came to realize that the pressure can be alleviated by adjusting the band to a larger size, causing them to sit lower on your ears. Unfortunately, the side effect was that the band would rest all the headphone's weight on top of your head, and since it's unpadded, it would cause a sharp pain on the top of my head. That's a problem I would never have expected to encounter.
Last requirement: Bluetooth. This is the feature I thought was actually excellent, as they were Bluetooth 4.0, aptX, had good range, and automatically paired with two devices at a time. Comparing them to the Backbeats though, I find that the Phiaton's Bluetooth hiss is about twice as loud as the Plantronics. The Plantronics also have slightly better range.
Throughout my owning these, I debated returning them, but didn't know of any better options, until I found the Backbeat Pros, which had great reviews. I ordered them, and shipped the Phiatons back to Amazon. I've now used the Backbeat Pros for a few workdays, and am very glad I switched.
