Wraith Premium Genuine Wood Over-Ear Headphones are another great surprise from Symphonized. They managed to blow our minds with their excellent sound quality that is even more impressive if we consider their affordable price tag. If you can get over their issues with microphonics and glasses, then you will be a proud owner of a very musical pair of headphones.
Symphonized is known for their use of traditional materials like wood in their line of headphones and earbuds. This results in a unique blend of innovative design and timbre that is simply not found elsewhere.
Design and build
Handcrafted from real wood, these headphones scream luxury and high-quality. Customers can choose from three different wood finishes (Cherry, Maple, Walnut). The large ear cups fit comfortably around ears and their padding is soft and provides a good amount of passive noise reduction. It will not protect you from the noise of screaming baby or rush hour traffic, but it will nicely mute the sound of a busy office and morning bus or train.
The headphones come with two cords. One has an inline microphone that lets you answer or end calls, skip tracks, and activate Voice Control on your smartphone or tablet. Both cables suffer from very noticeable microphonics. Slightly brushing the cable against your clothes or bumping it into the desk can ruin what would otherwise be a fantastic listening experience. These headphones also don’t pair well with some glasses, which is something to be aware of.
The biggest selling point of Wraith Premium Headphones is their super sound performance. Sub-bass is very nicely articulated, mids are clear and not overpowering, and highs are full of luscious detail.
You can really play just about any music genre you want and find out that these headphones have no trouble delivering a high-quality performance.
