Excerpt: The Thinksound company have only one aim, to make great sounding headphones by making the smallest eco-footprint possible. They were nice enough to send us a copy of their Rain headphones. Find out what we thought about them after the break! Included in the box made from 100% recycled materials, you will find the headphones themselves, 4 sets of silicon ear-tips, cord clip and a cotton carrying pouch to keep the headphones protected.
Excerpt: Much like the movies or music they’re meant for, earbuds are a highly subjective gadget. Something so mundane can literally run the gamut of options–heavy bass, no bass, in ear, on ear, plastic, metal, etc and spark heated debate as to superiority. I am in no way an audiophile, but I can hear and appreciate the differences in the range of audio-wear. I have been looking a new set to complement my trusty Sennheiser CX300-B and leave in my commuting bag.
Pros: Eco-friendly, Warm mid/high range sound, Long cord length, Lightweight, Good for those with smaller ears
Cons: Very light bass, May not be comfortable for some, Might not fit larger ears properly, A little pricey
Excerpt: Thinksound make headphones designed to be used with your MP3 player like the iPod Touch or the iPhone, although they are slightly different than some of the other headphones on the market as they have been designed to deliver a quality sound and have been manufactured to produce the smallest eco-footprint possible.
Conclusion: The Thinksound Rain Ear Buds deliver a nice balanced audio experience that most people will appreciate. I believe for the price you’re going to have a very hard time finding any pair of ear buds out there in this range that will beat these. You’ll even have a hard time finding pairs that cost twice as much that are better than these truly.
Pros: +Crisp, clear sound, +Lightweight, +Nicely made, +Long cable, +Includes carrying pouch, +Inexpensive compared to other brands, +Very comfortable
Cons: -Lower overall volume than others, -Lack of bass (but they’re made that way)
Conclusion: The sound quality of these headphones really depends on the genre of music you enjoy. Audio purists will find that the Rain really excels when it comes to acoustical, classical or vocal genres. Those into hip hop, heavy rock, or other genres that really rely on bass or a broad frequency range will want to look elsewhere; the Thinksound Rain are great sounding headphones that will cater to a particular listener.
Pros: Great sounding, Clear and accurate sound, Quality craftsmanship
