There are times in our busy house that you just want a little space to listen to your music choices, not everyone elses, to watch just one more episode of Homeland or Frozen for the umpteenth time. The solution of course has been headphones. Giving everyone the chance to watch or listen to whatever their latest favourite may be, without the rest of the house being subjected to it again and again. Plugging themselves into their phone or tablet has meant fewer arguments, especially in the last year or so. So when Coloud asked if we would like to test their range of headphones we were delighted. Personally I loved the bright colours, knowing that they would brighten up a run on a dull morning, when I didn't really want to head outside, but I was intrigued to see if they actually delivered a decent sound too.
These neatly designed little headphones pop into you ears, with covers in three sizes to prevent them falling out, unlike other brands that aren't so snug. Lucy regularly watches her favourite vloggers on You Tube and prefers in ear headphones, so she has willingly tested The Pop. She loves that the wires don't get tangled due to the flat design but most importantly the sound quality is excellent. Lucy has said there is little disturbance from external noise and whether she is watching a video or listening to her latest music choices these little headphones deliver fantastic sound. Aswell as the excellent sound quality she was interested to see there were different colour combinations available, which is important to every fashion loving teen.
These were our least favourite pair that we tested. Lucy and Jack compared them to being similar to school headphones and found external noise was heard more with this pair. However The Knock are a lightweight overhead design which both Kitty and Amber liked as they didn't feel heavy on their head. Again the flat cord was a hit, meaning the headphones could be worn quickly without having to unscramble the cords first.
The Boom had the majority vote as our family favourite. The closed construction design meant interference from external noise was virtually non-existent. Jack regularly watches movies and listens to music on his laptops and has tried various sets of headphones over the past few years. He was very impressed with The Boom and was surprised when I told him the price (£20), as he thought they would be much more expensive considering the quality of sound produced. Connor was equally impressed with these and they also get mine and Andys vote. Similarly to the other two pairs The Boom has flat cables, which really impressed us all, yet Andy and I are interested to see how this lasts in the longterm, knowing that cables do work loose with time.
The Pop, The Knock and The Boom are all available from Coloud's website. Each design is available in various colour choices, allowing you to personally style your perfect set of headphones.
Until next time, take care.
