Excerpt: As my flight reached cruising altitude, all the familiar annoyances were in full swing. The steady drone of the engines, the same canned announcements we’ve heard a hundred times, the obligatory high-pitched screams of the crying infant. This time I came armed with a pair of earphones made to ward off the insufferable sound pollution: Phiaton’s PS 210 BTNC , a wireless noise-canceling headset.
Conclusion: While many headphone companies talk big about creating revolutionary products, Phiaton has actually done it. The PS 210 BTNC is the best-sounding wireless earphone we’ve ever heard and, for that matter, one of the best earphones we’ve enjoyed in general. We think that even the most persnickety audiophiles will respect its dynamic, detailed performance. As far as we’re concerned, its versatility and user-friendliness is unmatched.
Pros: Outstanding sound quality, Versatile and well-featured, Easy to setup and use, Effective noise-canceling, Long battery life, Comfortable for long-term use
Conclusion: For the price, the build quality could be a bit better. The shirt clip seems a little flimsy and cheap and threatened to fall of my shirt once in awhile. Of course the closer the unit containing the mic is to your mouth the better the quality of the call and the best results were clipping it to the top of a T-shirt. Would I Recommend It? Yes, with next to no reservations. Phiaton has done something special. They made a nearly perfect product.
Pros: The best sound I've heard on any Bluetooth Headphone, logical and intuitive design, lots of eartip options, clear and quiet phone calls, long battery life, comfortable and convenient, a fair price for what you get.
Cons: Noise cancellation not as good as I'd expect. A rather flimsy clip.
Summary: The Phiaton PS 210 Sound Isolating Earphones aren't the best in terms of isolating noise, but they do provide top-notch clarity for the price. If you demand balanced audio, these are a good choice.
Pros: The Phiaton PS 210 earphones have a unique and stylish design, and they provide clear, balanced audio. The package includes a nice leather case.
Cons: The Phiaton PS 210's odd-shaped earpieces may not fit everyone comfortably. Sound isolation is subpar compared with most other models that advertise this feature.
Conclusion: The PS210 are a uniquely comfortable and capable set of in-ear headphones. Their fresh design approach really delivers on their promise for better bass and cleaner highs without wearing on your ears. Both casual and serious listeners will appreciate what they have to offer. At less than $100.00, the PS210 are a great value and worth a spot on your short-list.
Pros: Clean, open sound with solid bass, Durable build quality, Comfortable, secure fit, Very High Value
Cons: Thin ultra-high frequencies, High profile appearance, Mediocre sound isolation
