PERFORMANCE AND TESTING
Generally speaking, these headphones are perfect at the current price of £46 in terms of audio quality. The bass is punchy and doesn’t hold back at all, in fact you might want to be careful how loud you take these, because they will literally blow your mind. For all of my dubstep, drum and bass, EDM, these headphones felt so nice in that ever so important low range. I would say it wasn’t jumping off my head, but I don’t think that should be a benchmark for assessing the quality of headphones. In my eyes, great bass is what really adds that depth to the track, so you don’t want the other parts of the audio to be in its shadow, it should compliment the mids and highs. And the AUDIOMAX HB-8A Headphones produce some of the nicest bass I’ve heard at this price point in some time.
Treble is something we often think of as the second most important component, being the counterpart to bass, everything felt sharp and rich. I actually can’t say anything I disliked about these headphones, if anything I was surprised at such premium audio quality with a great price. The next thing I found incredible about the drivers they packed into the AUDIOMAX HB-8A Headphones? They simply refuse to distort, even after tweaking the EQ to push certain aspects of the range to another level.
Bottom line? Insanely good audio quality.
USABILITY AND DESIGN
Firstly let me start this section by saying how surprised I was with the comfort of these headphones, given the cups are a rectangle design which can sometimes be slightly uncomfortable in comparison to generic round cup designs, but these simply feel amazing to wear on a daily basis. The band that connects the two cups is also soft but not overstuffed with foam, and this simple design just simply works. The cups themselves even swivel on their axis to allow for a tighter, more secure fit, something more expensive brands seem to forget about.
Apparently the actual band is made from Aluminium but there are many hints of plastic, but it doesn’t feel cheap and easy to break. I’d say these should last the test of time, regardless of how much you use them. You’ll also notice that you can control your phone via the panel on the side of the headphones, allowing you to answer calls using the built-in microphone, or simply change the volume.
Backing all of this up with up to 20 hours of playback, you get an awesome pair of cans that you can take out and about with ease. And from an aesthetics point of view, they’re gorgeous to look at.
Bottom line? Amazing to use and packed full of features.
So in conclusion, would we pay for the AUDIOMAX HB-8A Headphones. They are simply a great piece of kit, and I can’t recommend them enough. For the price you can’t really go wrong, but the Bluetooth at this price range was a real treat.
I would like to find some bad points about the headphones, but in truth I don’t think there are any. Amazing audio quality at a great price. For Audiophiles I think this is a pair of headphones that will surprise you, and for those who are new to the audio game? You can’t go wrong with these headphones, they’ll give you many years of easy listening.
