I've been reviewing headphones for some time now. Everything from a $300 V-MODA Crossfade M-100 review down to a sub $20 neckband GRDE wireless headset review. The Flips Audio Headphones review was probably my first back in 2013. The 1 Voice Beanie was probably the most unique headphones to review. I recently had the chance to wrap my ears around the Sound Intone HD850 On-Ear Headphones, a sub $20 set. What follows is my review of that set and a giveaway for you to win your own.First off, from the picture, you'll notice the wild purple color. Besides purple, it comes in ten other color choices: black, gray, blue, orange, red, yellow, apple-green, dark blue, light blue, and sea-green. While the black is wearable by any age, I feel the target audience for the headsets are the teenage crowd. A second observation for this line of reasoning is the headphones have a sharing port allowing you to daisy chain multiple headsets together so you can listen with a friend to the same audio output.
More important than how they look is how they sound. For a sub-$20 set of headphones, not bad. A $200 set will pickup the nuances of a symphony performance better, but you'd be paying 10 times as much for the privilege. For the typical top forty needs of the teenager, they'll be more than happy of spending that money elsewhere.
Very lightweight and folds like nearly all the over-ear headphones these days. The headphones have a built-in microphone and you can answer your calls remotely if connected to a phone and not just a music player. Overall, I give it high marks for the under $20 market.
The giveaway is open to US residents who are 18+ and runs through 11:59 pm on 6/21/16. Winner receives their choice of color for the Sound Intone HD850 on-ear headphones. Void where prohibited.
