Alctron HP1200 Monitoring Over-Ear Headphones
To start off, I absolutely love these headphones.
The sound quality is really nice, and usually very clear, especially for the cost of the headphones.
The bass isn't rattly, and the top end isn't super tinny, which are issues I find often in lower-priced headphones, so well done on that front!
Upon first getting them, high volumes did cause the audio to clip, but this issue semmed to have resolved itself, and is no longer present, unless heavy amounts of pre-amp are applied.
The sound is very dynamic! Upon testing, sound appears to play very well above, below, left, right and centre very well. In front and behind aren't quite as good, but still pretty decent!
They also have a very little amount of frequency distortion. A little bit of distortion is typically expected for very low and very high frequencies, but these did really well!
They block out background noise quite well, but they do bleed a decent amount with higher volumes.
Now, that being said, they aren't the most comfortable headphones in this price range.
They're built very well, and they're very sturdy, but the padding around the speakers and on the headband are very thin, and don't cup the ears very well, they feel very flat, (though, the swivel on the headphones can help with this.)
They also do hurt to wear for longer periods of time, but I found this discomfort to grow more bearable the more I used them.
The length of the cord is nice, and allows for plenty of room whilst working. The plug is also very sturdy, and make the jack itself incredibly difficult to bend of break.
All-in-all, these headphones are really nice! I'd definitely recommend them for anyone who wants good sound, but are on a tight budget. Definitely worth their price and more.
