Headphone review: and why manufacturers love the biting apple?

The heroes of this comparative review are three models of expensive over-the-ear headphones, designed for use with portable equipment from “one fruit company” Apple, of course . For a long time everyone has known about “the magic of the Apple brand” and how it works on manufacturers of accessories compatible with Apple equipment. It is quite natural that her magic power want to feel and manufacturers of headphones – that’s why the market of headsets, compatible with the iPhone, iPod, iPad, and other “apple” equipment is growing.

To be fair, it is worth noting that the growth of this market owes not only to Apple, but also to another company with a “frightening” name – Monster. It was Monster full name – Monster Cable Products , having secured the support of authoritative rapper Dr.Dre, marched triumphantly around the world with a new line of headphones, telling everyone that her headphones are cool.

Because its headphones are nothing but a beautiful and expensive headsets for Apple devices, it turns out that Monster through its actions “nurtured” a market for such headsets. Newcomers are actively entering this market and those who were there before are making great efforts to prove that their products are cool too. And here we go: more manufacturers, more various and interesting models…

We have three Apple headsets in our review today: Sennheiser Momentum, V-Moda Crossfade M100 and PSB M4U-1. Why we were attracted to these particular models? Sennheiser – actually, because it is Sennheiser, the model from V-Moda we liked the unusual design and ample opportunities for its “individualization”. Well, the company PSB – a newcomer to the headphone market, and her first product seemed to us very, very promising.

Summary

“Beauty! There are no laggards among the runners-up!”These words, said by a great poet about running in place, are perfect to describe the situation with our “test” headphones-headset. There are no winners and losers among them – all models, in general, are equally good, and each deserves to be paid attention to it when choosing. In conclusion, here is a brief list of the advantages and disadvantages of each of the headsets.
