When listening to the best nosie cancelling headphones SHL3160, there was no disagreement with what is written on the packaging – these are good headphones for mobile use of the middle class. What does this mean? The headphones reproduce all frequencies without strong distortion: the vocals sound quite naturally, the basses are present, but there is no accent, and high frequencies do not cut the ears.
When listening to different tracks it became clear that low frequencies to headphones are given easily, but they do not have pressure and depth. It is audible that there are low frequencies, they do not fail, but here feelings of immersion do not occur. The midrange, in general, are played best, they are pleasant and assertive. High frequencies are reproduced without difficulty, though, at times it seemed to me that they were slightly muted, but not much. We have a good, but standard sound – the headphones play all the frequencies without serious flaws, but there’s really nothing to brag about.
- U2 “Every Breaking Wave” – vocals sound good, naturally, without serious distortion. Difficult moments of the song the headphones played without stalling to noise and “turbid” sound, everything was smooth. But as it seemed to me, the immersion in the composition was a little spoiled by insufficient pressure and elasticity of low frequencies.
- Paul Simon “Graceland” – the sound of this composition, in general, I liked it, the vocals sounded softly, as it should. The panorama was well felt, there was a clear picture of the separation of instruments in space. But everything could be even better if the lower frequencies were more assertive and confident.
- Madonna “Jump” – this track, like the previous one, requires good low frequencies. However, this is compensated by a good vocal and a good detail of the sounds. They sound clear without falling into a heap.
- How to Destroy Angels “Ice Age” – it is in this composition that the noise cancelling headphones are completely detailed. Each sound is clearly distinguishable, each sounds as it should, without stumbling and mixing into a pile. Separately – vocals, separately – tools. It creates a feeling that sounds can be touched individually. Hence, we conclude that the headphones can be much more than shown in the famous pop music, you only need to find a good source of sound for them, and they will be 100% open.
- Snoop Lion “So Long (Feat. Angela Hunte)” – reggae sounds great. Deep bass is not needed here, much more attention is paid to the middle frequencies and vocals, and with this problem, the headphones have no.
- Leo Abrahams “Masquerade” – listening to this track, I vividly imagined a man on the stage who plays the guitar, so really it sounded. Middle frequencies are the strong side of these noise cancelling headphones, they perfectly convey the head and force, cleanly and without distortion.
