This is the first time I heard about these headphones. He talks about them after showing the 'Retro' Auvio's
I got the first pair off Craigslist for $25
Needless to say I had to get two more to use and have laying around the house without fear of my nephew grabbing my Beyerdynamics DT770 80ohm and breaking them.
As they are made of the cheapest cancer inducing plastics. Like most headphones.
They have a pretty flat sound, and since they are 32ohm they are perfect for the average portable device/Altoids Tin
They are 50mm so i decided to plug them into my audio interface.
When I plugged these into the M-Audio ProFire 610 interface they sounded pretty decent.
The manual claims they have a frequency response of 20Hz-20kHz but amped they sound more like 18Hz-25kHz
The cord is somewhat thick about 2cm. website claims it has a 4ft. cord but really it's 7ft.
People are claiming around the internet they break but so far I have not seen any evidence in any of the pair I own.
I imagine people are confusing them with the older version also by the same name of "Concert Class Stereo Headphones"
I'm not claiming they are the Holy Grail of 'under $40 dollar headphones' but they sound like Beats By Dre minus the cheap built in bass amp.
I called the Auvio's one eight hundred number and the operator was claiming they were 50mm Pioneer Drivers!?.
I do not suggest you try to drill holes into them as they are closed type and lose all bass when you try to open their sound stage.
Either that or I just FAILED. I ended up plugging the holes I made with paper. smh.
Here is the PDF link to the manual which includes more pictures.
One thing to note is that when you go through the manual especially the PDF version which you can zoom into.
You will notice that there is a diagram of a Pioneer SX-218 receiver....
They fit inside Beats By Dre Box/Pouch
