MMElectronics is a company that provides big bang for the buck and its N8P noise isolation head set is no exception. The N8P comes in at a very reasonable $29.99, which is not very high price for something that can be used for your mp3 player, smartphone, and computer.
The Specifications are as follows:
Driver: 9mm dynamic driver with neodymium magnet
Frequency: 18Hz to 20Hz
Impedance: 16 ohms
Maximum Power Input: 27 mW
Cable Length: 130cm/51 inches
Features: Dynamic Bass, bass reflex design for better isolation, and metal casing with reinforced cables.
The package is simply packed and comes in a simple orange box containing a double ear bud, and a larger and smaller silicone ear bud. I found the double ear buds supplied, were absolutely intolerable and gave a terrible suction cup feeling on my ear, the smaller one was what ended up the most comfortable. I usually wear them almost 6 to 7 hours at a time without any discomfort. Occasionally, I do get a suction cup feeling on my ear in certain positions, however it’s not too common and it’s probably do to my own ears and mal-positioning of the headphones more than anything. The fit and finish seem to make it pretty sturdy and hard to wear them out unless you were really trying. The NP8s are nothing fancy, but the sound is where they shine.
The sound N8P has an overall clean and crisp feel to them, they feel very balanced for lower end head set, with a slight mid preference. Playing with the equalization will help fine tune to the user’s preferences easily. It is capable of great vocals as well as bass beats, even with a flat equalization. I will say I prefer to have them with a gain in bass and high treble. The microphone is a bonus as well, and performs adequately as hands free cellular microphone and for speaking to fellow video gamers online, but you’re not going to be doing any nice recording on it. The sounds that come from the tiny N8Ps are something that I wouldn’t expect from such a small speaker at such a cheap price. They far outperform my Skull Candy earbuds, and solidly beat my Sony’s in bass quality. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a sub $40 pair of headphones and to the budget audiophile.
