Spider PowerForce Headphones

I’ve always been impressed with Spider’s products in the past, so I was especially excited to get my hands on their latest over-ear model, the PowerForce over-ear Headphones..

There are many pieces to the design of these headphones. Between the glossy plastic, reflective signature Spider logo on each ear cup, and leather stitching, the PowerForce’s are not your grandma’s pair of headphones.

The first noticeable aspect of the design is the ear cups, which swivel in every possible way. The mechanism used for the ear cups reminds me of that carnival game where you sit in a chair and are spun in every possible direction. Like the game, the swivel takes some time to get used to. After you figure out how to use it, it works pretty well, but it is still a little fidgety.

The plastic construction is durable but creaks a little when moved.
Comfort-wise, they are about middle of the road. The ear cups are on the small side, but there’s just enough padding to make up for it. They aren’t exactly over-ear or on-ear, more of a combination of both.  My biggest gripe is that the headphones flare out too much. Like other similar CelebHeadphones, the Powerforce’s ear cups are too large, making them look ridiculous when worn by someone with a smaller head. However, having large ear cups does have its benefits…

By far, the best part of the PowerForce’s is the sound quality. Props to Spider for creating great sounding headphones at under $150. While they are bass heavy, I’m guessing those who are looking to buy big, glossy, Spider headphones, aren’t too worried about a little extra bass in their music. They even sound better than most headphones twice its price.

Bottom-line is if you’re under the age of 25, don’t mind the outrageous design, and are looking for great sound quality, the Spider Cable PowerForce Headphones are for you.

I-Mego Throne Gold Headphones

I-Mego is a new headphone company known for having unique-looking products. Today, I will be reviewing their Gold Throne Headphones.

First off, these headphones are definitely not for shy folk as their bold design will surely attract a couple second glances. The Throne’s blend a classic throwback 50’s retro look with a modern feel. The ear cups resemble those iconic old-school mic’s that we all remember. Even though the headphones are made nearly entirely of plastic, they look more like metal. On the upper portion of the headphones, the I-Mego logo is stamped in the leather.

The Thrones have the perfect amount of pressure when worn. Besides causing a little ear sweat after prolonged use, they are extremely comfortable and measure up well against similarly priced headphones. The Throne’s come with a built in in-line mic which I found worked well. Unfortunately, the headphone cord is not detachable, which means you’re going to want to make sure to not yank on it.  Also, the Throne’s don’t fold up, which means they aren’t great for travel.

The sound quality of the I-Mego Throne’s is about what you would expect from a $100 dollar headphone. If you’re looking for the best sounding -$100 headphone, these aren’t for you. However, if you’re willing to compromise on sound quality for bold unique styling, then the I-Mego Throne’s aren’t a bad option.

If you’re looking for a pair of headphones which will attract a lot of attention, the I-Mego Throne’s are about as good as it’s going to get.

Wale signed to Skullcandy Supreme Sound Team

In the last year we've seen Skullcandy start to alter the company image by signing a number of NBA players and supermodels. Today, they have announced the signing of Wale, one of hip-hop's biggest starts. I like the choice because Skullcandy needed to add a big artist to it's endorsement lineup, and Wale's fun and quirky style fits the company well.
