However, it must be borne in mind that this is a company that has many more titles available to us depending on our needs. Many of you will know that the ones mentioned above help us to edit photos, videos, or design websites.

For your own good, do not buy these headphones

Our work allows us to try a virtually unlimited number of gadgets, and in particular of products compatible with iPhone. When I agreed to try these Lightning headphones, especially since I had not yet received the AirPods and I was hoping to find something to replace the dignity Lightning EarPods that I found in the box of my iPhone 7 Plus I was contacted by the press office. Needless to say, that expectations have been largely disregarded. But I want to tell what happened in this review.

I received these headphones before Christmas (just think, ‘I’ve been thinking … well there before writing this article) and I tried them virtually the only two occasions for a total of no more than 2 minutes of listening. The reason? I’ll tell you soon.

Best Lightning headphones 2017 Phones for iPhones

The headphones are presented with a rather unique design. There is a Lightning connector that becomes then a 3.5mm jack and fits into an in-line buttons for volume, play / pause button and even a button to “enhance bass.” Besides this, on the remote stands, fierce, the ” Hi-Res Audio “: According to the description on Amazon, ” the headset adopts Hi-Res technology to high resolution audio. It provides a transmission of low audio signal to 24-bit 48kHz loss, using higher sampling rates than the standard used in conventional CD. “Wow, so cool!

Comfortable they are!

The pads are designed to be sufficiently insulating and to prevent the movement of headphones. Then I discover the presence of a second in-line, this place in the traditional position. From here, however, we can only pause and resume playback, as well as call up Siri. In any case, decidedly more comfortable this from the other remote that is so close to the phone from push to manage playback directly by the latter.

Again according to the product description, the headphones are compatible with any iOS device with Apple Lightning connector. Too bad the reality is different in this case. First I tested on a iPad Pro and an iPhone 7 Plus: the result was that “low” was not working. Both devices have instead worked when I connected the headset of iPhone 5c.

The product description then speaks of “advanced sound insulation technology“: do not be fooled, there is none of that. Headphones isolate, why I even said I, but just as it is conceived to isolate the rubber and because of its nature in-ear. There are no other special “technology” for the reduction of the noises.

Before talking about the sound quality (I leave it as a last but not least) it remains to clarify the operation of the “Bass Boost button”. At first glance it might seem one of the few points in favor of these headphones, but with a comparative listening we understand that actually activating the bass enhancement is not going to help but recall those low that, in theory, should already be played and they are instead cut if you do not use this feature. No real advantage, so, considering that if you want to get a better listening bodied always active you keep this function.

regular headphones - only they plug into a Lightning port instead of a 3.5mm socket

Ok, I can not escape.

We talk about the audio quality. I told you, I don not more than 10 seconds the first time and, with some effort, for a little less than two minutes the second time. I sincerely enough and advanced. To cover the cost of the product sound quality is really embarrassing. Poor call it would not make enough of the idea. For heaven’s sake, your music still able to recognize them, but equalization is very flat, the distribution is poor and the audio resolution is very low. Many frequencies will be completely wiped out and some sounds that you are used to identify even small caps will definitely not play.

Do you see why I’ve already recommended in the broad title of partridge? And I have not told you everything yet. These headphones costing € 69.99 (yes, sixty-nine and ninety-nine euro!). Needless to tell you: you do not work hard to find the best of these headphones. I would say that the solution you have already on hand and at no cost: the EarPods you found in the packaging of your iPhone sound better, are prettier. Continue to use them and forget this new one.
