I think that the Jabra VOX headphones would be a great replacement for the headphones included with any MP3 player or mobile phone. At just $99 they have great vibrant sound that is much more crisp than many other headphones out there. On top of that Jabra does include their Sound App which will make your music sound even better and does add Dolby Digital Plus.
A huge thing about headphones is that they have to be comfortable. Many people will be wearing them for hours on end. The VOX headphones have a unique design to them unlike most earbud-type headphones. They are designed to fit the contours of your ears. Jabra said this will make them comfortable, which proved to be true. I ended up wearing the VOX headphones for about 4 hours one day and they were as comfortable as when I first put them on.
The in-line controls work well, but are not as good as others I have used on earphones before. They do allow your to turn music up and down as well as pause and play. If you are using an iPhone you can take calls as well. Microphone performance was good, but people on the other end of the call said they could tell I was using some type of headset.
The headphones are made with quality materials and that is very apparent as soon as you take them out of the package. The cable is pretty heavy duty as well. The magnetic clips and the way the cable is designed make it so the cables do not get tangled easily, which is definitely a plus.
As I said these headphones are only $99 and at that price they are one of the best sounding headphones you can find. You also get a nice carry case, which is a plus. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Jabra VOX In-ear Headphones a 9 out of 10 score.
- Quality design
- Clear and vibrant sound
