Decent headphones, could use additional padding.

Listening to music for me is second nature. I typically have it playing the background while I’m working or doing housework. It keeps me focused and moving forward with my task at hand. With that in mind, it’s essential for me to have a decent pair of headphones to make sure that I’m not disturbing those around me. My favorite type of headphones are over-ear headphones. They are the most comfortable for me and they typically block out just the right amount of ambient noise. I have a couple of premium pairs of headphones, but don’t always want to use those while I’m doing menial chores around the house. I like to always have a secondary pair that didn’t cost an arm and a leg just in case something happens to them. This set of Over-Ear headphones from Earto seemed very promising. They are affordable and stylish. So, I thought I would test them out.

When I first powered them on, the headphones immediately went into pairing mode. A voice with a German accent let me know that the headphones were ready to be paired. Pairing between the headphones and my iPhone did not take any time at all. When I slipped the headphones of my ears, I found them to be a little on the uncomfortable side for me. The shape of the ear cups was just a little tight for my head. I wore them for about 20 minutes or so while I was testing them out and didn’t find them to become any more comfortable.

I typically judge headphones off of two major categories – comfort and sound quality. Since the comfort for me was a bust, I didn’t have very high expectations for the sound quality. I was actually pleasantly surprised. The sound quality was really very good. One of the reasons I prefer over-ear headphones is because they typically have better bass than open headphone styles. The same is true of these headphones. They could have been a bit punchier, but really, they delivered a nice sound depth.

The controls on the left ear piece are easy to use and the buttons are pronounced enough that you can feel your way through them quite easily. One thing I don’t like is that the volume and next button are the same button. If you press and hold the button, the volume will go up. If you simply tap the button it will skip to the next song. This seems to be a trend with headphones these days, but I’d much rather have them be separated.

All in all, these are nice set of headphones and I like that they are offered in white. They also come equipped with a stereo cable, which will allow you to plug them directly into a device rather than using a wireless connection. Do these fit my needs as a secondary pair? Unfortunately, I would have to say no due to the comfort level lacking, but someone else with different ears may find these to be a perfect fit.
