Kicker Audio Cush Over-Ear Headphones

Today, I will be reviewing the Cush Headphones by Kicker Audio. These are the second Kicker Headphones I will have reviewed, the first being the TJ Lavin HP541 Headphones. Now, let’s get into the review.

When you put the headphones on you will notice right away just how comfortable these headphones are. Kicker made the perfect choice in calling them Cush, as they have a ridiculous amount of cushion and padding, making them one of the most comfortable headphones on the market. Although they are made entirely of plastic, they feel sturdy and durable.  They are also extremely light for their size. The cord is similar to a Beats by Dre cord: flat, thick and non-tangling. For the most part, Kicker has done a great job with the design, however I did fine a few negative aspects.
First, the headphones do not include an in-line mic, something I wish they would have include it as a feature in a premium model.  Second, the headphones don’t collapse or come with a carrying case, making them difficult for traveling. Finally, the large amount of padding on the earcups makes them look especially large when worn, especially on those with smaller heads.

Without getting into too much detail, the Cush Headphones have great sound quality, especially for their affordable price.  The bass is strong, yet not overpowering. There are many headphones double the price that don’t sound nearly as good as the Cush, and, unless you’re willing to spend over $150 to get yourself a V-Moda Crossfade or a Skullcandy Aviator, the Kicker’s are about as good as your going to get in terms of sound quality.
After reviewing Kicker’s first products, the TJ Lavin Headphones, I wasn’t expecting much, but the Cush Headphones are a pleasant surprise, and at only $70, are a bargain. If you are looking for an affordable headphone that combines style, comfort and good sound quality, the Kicker Cush Headphones are for you.
