Growing up in a family of musicians has given me a fairly good ear, though I’m by no means an audiophile. I just know good sound quality when I hear it. I had the opportunity to test out ableplanet’s latest high-end noise-canceling headphones.
The difficult thing about testing audio equipment is that unless you have something to compare with, it’s hard to be fair. Luckily I had the chance to pit their Linx Audio Clear Harmony headphones against a comparable set from Bose. After listening to a couple of selections with both, it was clear that the Linx Audio set were of a much higher quality. Not only could I not hear a single thing going on around me (which seemed like a miracle in that environment) but the mids were much clearer.
You’ll have to pay for a quality set of headphones like these. The ones I tested out will run you around $300, which isn’t too outrageous if you’re into music recording, or something similar that requires the clearest possible sound.
