Design and build
How much comfort can you really expect from headphones that cost around $20? Well, the Behringer’s answer is a lot. These headphones feature a very deep and soft padding on the headband and on-ear pads. The clamping force is just about right for longer listening sessions and the high-quality swivel joints conform to any head shape and size out there.
The single-sided cord with oxygen-free copper wires stays relatively tangle-free and doesn’t exhibit any issues with microphonics. Many DJ headphones come with a removable cable that lets users select the right length for any applications. These headphones don’t offer this features, however, if you feel a little adventurous and have at least some experience with soldering, you could definitely make a relatively simple modification and add this feature yourself. There are many tutorials online that will graphically explain to you how to do it.
Behringer has decided to use a fairly traditional combination of silver with black. This combination gives the headphones a premium look. The leather used for padding feels slightly cheaper than what you find in more expensive headphones but luckily doesn’t cause excessive sweating. The high quality of German engineering shows throughout these headphones and we can confidently say that these will last a long time if you take care of them correctly.
What a surprise! Honestly, we couldn’t believe our ears. Such a high sound quality usually comes with an equally steep price tag. Just how Behringer managed to create this sound is beyond us. They sound miles better than most other headsets and earbuds even two or three tiers above their price range.
They are very balanced, with slightly recessed lower frequencies. The soundstage is wide and spacious and does a great job when it comes to accurately rendering a 3D sound space. Perfect for gaming and movies. Noise isolation is fairly good as well and sound leakage is minimal at worst.
What is in the box?
Given their very low price tag, it’s no surprise at all that these headphones don’t come with any additional accessories except for 1/8″ (3.5mm) to 1/4″ (6.3mm) adapter and a limited 1-year warranty that can be extended to 3-years with a simple product registration.
