Introduction:

Headphones are a very valuable asset if you attend LAN partys or enjoy listening to your audio privately. The headphones I will be testing today are the Aopen HS-780.

Design:

These Aopen Headphones have a fairly well fitting headset design, the cups on the ears and the top headband have leather padding which makes them very comfortable to wear. The headphones seem a little flimsy however, because the head band is made of plastic, although it is padded with leather-like PVC material to provide extra comfort. The attached microphone is not flexible which can be a problem with different people as it cannot be shaped to fit different head sizes.

Features/Performance:

The Aopen HS-780 Headphones are very light weight with a closed ear design. The padded ear cups are extra large in order to provide increased comfort and improved sound quality. The headphones come with a 10 ft. cord, inline volume control, extra large padded ear cups and an omni-directional microphone. They produce exceptional audio quality for their price range and the omni-directional microphone is very sensitive. The headphones perform well both at high and low frequencies. However, you may hear a little bit of distortion if you are listening to music with lots of bass.

Conclusion:

The Aopen HS-780 Headphones perform very well. They also have a nice cord length (10 ft.) which can be very useful if you move around a lot. The headphones are priced at around $20 which is very reasonable, especially when you hear the sound quality that they produce.

Pros:

  • Nice cord length - Allows you to move around the room freely.
  • Great audio quality.
  • Good value for money.

Cons:

  • Microphone isn’t flexible so you can’t bend it to your required shape.
  • Headphones are flimsy
