Sound Intone CX-05 Headphones provide a clear sound and solid build.

It seems like headphones are all the rage recently. There are so many different styles, sizes, and varieties. I’m not a big fan of earbuds. They always feel like they are going to fall out. Bluetooth headphones are nice, but worrying about the battery level can be bothersome when you are always on the go with life or work. I like the old school approach, corded with nice soft ear pads that stay in place.

Sound Intone’s CX-05 foldable headphones fit for everything I wanted. The foldable headphones cradle over the top of the head giving me the security that it won’t just slide off. The headband is fairly think and heavy, but comfortable. Other over the head designs tend to be a little fragile and break easily. The CX-05 isn’t too stiff, and has padding running along the whole underside, not just a random spot in the middle. Also the top part is a pretty stylish.

The arms leading to the cups are solid metal. While this does a bit more weight, you never have to worry abut them breaking. There is a small wire that runs from the headband to the cup. It’s barely noticeable and not covered in cheap plastic. The cups that hold the speakers are a little bulky, but they don’t take away from the over all appeal of the CX-05. You can change to a different set of cup pads that are included with the headphones. The whole unit is black and silver, so it goes with any equipment that I use.  He sound quality is pretty decent – not the best, but definitely not the worst. For their price, I still got better quality than I expected.

While most headphones are being used with our smartphones and not just stand alone music players, there is a need to be able to take phone calls. The CX-05 has two different cables included. One standard 3.5 mm jack and a separate 3.5 mm headphone jack with an inline microphone and a call answer button for all things hands free. Both cords are wrapped in black nylon and the headphone jacks are gold plated, giving slightly better connection.

The real feature is that the CX-05 folds up for easy storage and transport. I tend to use my headphones when I am doing something away from the home. I can just fold it up and go without having to find a space for them in almost any bag.
