Aerial7 Phoenix Headphones

The new Phoenix headphones are the cheapest on-ear headphones offered by Aerial7. The company is known for their eye catching designs because of the stylish color combinations offered. Some might be turned away from the over-the-top color choices offered with these headphones, but I personally like them. The one problem with the design is the large logo on the outside of the ear cups. It might just be me, but I really don't like the Aerial7 arrow logo. It looks the same as the "Above the Influence" logo, which is the advertising campaign of the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign. I don't know about you, but I don't want to walk down the street and have people think I'm rocking anti-drug headphones.

The Aerial7 Phoenix headphones were designed with a DJ in mind since the earcups swivel 180 degrees. The problem with this design feature is that 99% of the people that buy these headphones are not DJ's. Another problem I have is the extremely small and uncomfortable ear cups. One good aspect is that these headphones can play music really loud. Even though they sound better then I initially predicted, they still don't sound great when played extremely loud. While the Aerial7 Phoenix may have many funky color options, they are not worth buying because of the many design flaws and average sound quality. They are available in 6 styles: Citron, Chino, Storm, Eclipse, Tantrum, & Soldier.
