First impressions of the WESC headphones are good. Â They are light weight with a nice quality feel to them. Â The extenders are smooth and easily operated with a nice sheathed lead which will really reduce the tangle problems you usually get. Â For extended distances you are given a 3.5mm female to male extender. Â The colour choice are great, funky and fun andÂ definitelyÂ got my attention when “browsing”.
When playing music the sound is loud and clear with reasonable to good bass definition. Â The tight fit around the head keeps outside sound to a minimum and whilst at high volume there is some sound “leak” it’s pretty good and wouldn’t annoy anyone in an office environment.
Overall they are good. Â There are options ranging from Â£40 to Â£100 and obviously sound improvment grows with price. Â I’d love to test out the “Alp Horn” model but given the price and the inability to test these in the shop I wasn’t going to put out the money for them. Â Anything over Â£60 for a pair of head phones requires on site testing and without I’m not going to bother. Â I made that mistake with a Â£300 pair ofÂ sennheiser headphones a number of years ago.
