I have to admit, I chose to buy iBeats headphones because of the look of it. I’m not a headphone enthusiast, and it seems that I’m still a pseudo-fungus, and for me, the headphones that can make sounds are OK. However, I pay more attention to the appearance of the headphones than the sound quality. ibeats headphones are just one such headphone that impresses me with its beautiful shape.
The first time I met iBeats headphones was about two months ago when I first planned to change my phone. Yes, HTC sensation XE! At that time, although XE was expensive, it was actually equipped with such a handsome pair of headphones. But I really don’t look at the HTC phone design, especially when the XE and LT26i are compared together, I really don’t want to buy a phone I don’t like for a pair of headphones.
After entering ibeats keywords on Taobao, you can search for thousands of records, the cheapest ones are dozens of dollars, and there are many versions, what HTC version, iPhone version and so on. Forget it, I didn’t have any ability to identify headphones, so I still bought licensed goods.
The first time I got the box for ibeats headphones, I felt very small, but very delicate. The front of the box is printed with a beautiful photo of the silver-white headphones, and it is specially reminded that it is made for Apple devices.
On the back of the box, the famous quote of dr.dre, as well as the in-line control instructions of ibeats headphones, of course, Chinese label also printed with information such as the characteristics of this headphones.
I couldn’t wait to take the headphones off, heh, what a heavy guy. Gently bump the two headphones to make a crisp sound, similar to the sound of glass marbles colliding with each other.
The headphones are made of metal and coated with a bright white coating. The back cover of the back of the headphones is removable and printed with a large ‘B’, so some people jokingly call the Magic Sound headphones 2B headphones.
On the body of the headphones, use blue and red circles to mark the left and right earbuds. The red snare on the back of the two earbuds is actually a rubber snout that can be removed.
As for this diamond-like wire control, I personally feel that the plastic sense is too strong, the feel is not very good, and it will be much better if it is also made of metal
For me, a layman, talking about sound quality is really too reluctant. But I also have my own opinion.
I don’t have many headphones on hand, just a Moon Hidden Stone of Moshi that I bought with my phone not long ago, so let’s compare the two of them.
The first is the bass part, after all, ibeats is mainly bass, so after listening to it, I feel that the bass of ibeats headphones is indeed mellow, unlike moshi headphones that give people a sense of turbidity.
Regarding the vocal part, the level of online professional evaluation is not clear. Personally, compared to Moshi, I think it is more thorough.
For the mid-high range, I personally think it can still be shown, or there is a sense of layering (hehe, maybe my standards are too low)
In any case, this entry-level ibeats headphones from Magic Sound are unbearable for dedicated audiophiles.
Mosheng’s China official website will provide a way to check the license, like me, there is no identification ability, can only buy the licensed, you can detect through this
You can go to “Technical Support”, “Anti-counterfeiting Inquiry”, and then enter your name, email address and scratched anti-counterfeiting code
Regarding the compatibility of ibeats headphones, it is necessary to say here that although Magic Sound said that this headset is made by Apple, the real support is not perfect.
1) ibeats headphones connected to iPhone 3G (4.1 firmware, jailbreak), volume adjustment keys cannot be used, only use the middle button, play/pause, previous/next song
2) Connect the iPod nano4 (1.0.4 firmware), which can be perfectly supported
Of course, it may also be because my iPhone 3G is too old to support it, but my nano4 is also from that era.
So, I probably expected that iBeats would not be very compatible with the Sony LT26i. Sure enough, the LT26i plugged in the headphones, did not respond at all, and the music still floated out of the speaker. I felt a chill in my heart. A search on the Internet, there are really people like me who equipped the LT26i with iBeats headphones, and also encountered the same problem, but fortunately, a netizen came up with a way to upload an extremely blurry video. I have roughly summarized a few steps myself, hoping to help people who are experiencing the same problem
2) Insert ibeats headphones into the headphone jack, normally the sound still comes from the phone
In short, ibeats headphones are suitable for people like me who do not have too high requirements for sound quality, but have great requirements for appearance.
Because it is said that the sound quality of this headset is quite the standard of about 300 yuan headphones (strange, my moshi is also about 300), but the appearance is enough to kill other headphones.
