Headphones have gradually been increasing in price for the last few years. Sub-standard vanity headphone brands have provided individuals with $50 headphones for $200. iHome’s latest effort, the iB50 Active Noise Canceling Headphones, provide $200 of headphones for $50. The simple black / silver / red highlights of the iB50 Headphones match any computer, phone, or MP3 player, while the audio that issues forth from the headphones is incredibly rich. The volume dial (included on the cord) makes rapid volume changes (for example, different genre or mastering between songs) absolutely easy.
For those that like to just throw their gear into a workout bag brusquely, iHome has placed a rubberized coating on the iB50 headphones. To decrease the stress and pain on the ears, the iB50 also include a thick padding on the ear cushions. This padding creates a solid seal with the ear, ensuring an overall better sound for listeners. The whole musical experience of the iB50 is stellar, as the enhanced bass response creates a faithful reproduction of any track, no matter the genre or the mastering. We were able to rock out properly to Slayer, Avicii, and even Dr. Dre without any loss in quality. For those finicky about the weight of their headphones, the iB50 weigh in at a hair under .4 of a pound. A travel bag is included with the purchase of an iB50, which ensures further safety in transport and ease of including valuable additions like the airline adapter.
Make it a point to check out the iHome website for further information about these headphones and the slate of products that they company will be releasing through the end of 2013. The iB50 can be purchased on the iHome website.
