When I look for a pair of headphones I look for comfort as much as sound quality. That doesn’t mean I don’t want good sounding headphones, it just means I’ll sometimes sacrifice a little sound quality for the extra added comfort. The sound quality surpassed my expectations in most tests. Music, movies, and gaming all gave me an enjoyable listening experience across all devices. Unfortunately, songs with deep bass didn’t sound as good as they should have.
Despite the marketing, the iPhone and iPad didn’t offer anything better in the way of sound quality. They are fine to use with whatever device you choose. The Urban Zen Cleansing headphones are lightweight, compact, and look cool to the right person.
When you first look at the the plastic you might think to yourself, this product is made of cheap plastic, but that’s not the case. I’ve tested the headphones for a few weeks now and have found they’re more sturdy than you expected. This is coming from me dropping them from my desk about 10 times (this was done on purpose to test the durability of the Cleansing headphones). My desk stands exactly 2-feet off the ground, so it’s a considerable height to fall and cause damage. We found no visible damage after the drops, which is a big thumbs up in my book.
Taking everything into consideration, it all boils down to how the headphones sounded and felt as a whole. Despite good sound quality, these headphones became very uncomfortable to wear after extended periods of time. That’s why we can only award the Eagle Tech:ET-ARHP300FC-WH (Cleansing) HeadPhones our PureOverclock Great Value Award.
