While I’m all about the wireless headset experience (and not feeling tied to my desk during the work day), I realize that there are times that you just prefer a wired connection, either for fidelity of sound reproduction, or simply not having to worry about getting things charged up. If that’s the canoe you find yourself paddling, then something like the OneOdio Monitor 60 Headphones might be what you’re looking for.
In terms of aesthetics, the OneOdio Monitor 60 Headphones look like they were pulled from the recording studio, or even from the head of your favorite DJ (in fact, the earcups can be flipped up 180 degrees so you can hear what’s going on for ambient noise). Obviously, these are aimed at those who are more musically inclined, but even for the casual user, they should work.
For cabling, the OneOdio Monitor 60 Headphones comes with both a 1/4″ to 1/8″ cable (so you can plug into your favorite audio equipment), a 1/8″ – 1/8″ cable (for plugging into, say, your phone or laptop), as well as a 1/8″ cable with a built-in mic (so you can use these to make calls). In terms of sound reproduction, the 50mm drivers have a pretty broad range (20 Hz -40K Hz) and aim to produce balanced and accurate sound.
Another benefit to the OneOdio Monitor 60 Headphones is the fact you can daisy-chain them together, so you and another person can listen to the same thing, be it music or the dialogue from whatever video you’re watching. These won’t break the bank, either – they come in at $79.99, and they’re an additional 20% off right now over on Amazon. We’re working with them to get a review unit in, so be on the lookout for that. oneodio.com
