Headphones from Cygnett
Cygnett Sound Check
An over ear set of headphones. They are well padded both at the ear and at the head the latter very important for the follicle challenged among up. There is up to 3.5cm of extension on each side of the headband so they should fit most.
The colour scheme is black and red. The red is highlight bands on the ear pieces and the underside of the headband as well as the 1.5metre lead from the left ear piece to whatever the 3.5mm jack is connected to. I used both an ‘i’ device and an MP3 player and also plugged into my audio system, all gave a respectable volume level with clarity at both the base and top end.
I am please to say there was a huge multi language instruction book and the only advice was on the back of the box.
It comes with a fabric drawstring bag to allow you to transport them.
The frequency range is stated as 20-20000 Hz and the sensitivity as 106dB.
If you are looking a no frills quite acceptable set of headphones then the Cynett Sound Check should be on your list.
The Cygnett Sound Check is available from the link below for £30.37 with free delivery.
Should you want to pay a little more and get added noise cancelling then you could consider the Cygnett InSound.
These are slightly lighter in weight and smaller in size. They are still an over ear offering with 2.5cm of expansion on either side.
The left side is where the detachable 3.5mm lead connects. It is one metre in length you also get an airplane style separate adapter.
The two ‘AAA’ batteries (not supplied) fit into the left ear piece while the controls – volume and on/off – are on the right.
I tested these on possibly the most testing everyday environment the London Tube, some lines are notoriously loud and I was able to listen to music quite comfortably with noise cancelling on, turn it off and the volume needed to go up to the point where others may be annoyed. So the noise cancelling does what it should.
However I do not wear them walking along the street with noise cancelling on for the reason that you do not here dangers from the roads.
These come with a padded hard case. 40mm speaker diameter, Frequency range 30-20000 Hz and Sensitivity 98 dB. There is a small User Guide with four pages in English.
The material both on the ears and on the head padding is cooler to the touch so in hot weather will be far more comfortable for long periods of use.
The Cygnett InSound is available from the link below for £79.99.
