Objective Wicked Audio Helix and Heist earphones review

By Posted 3 Sep 2013, 10:49

Having offered you a review earlier today of the Street by 50 Cent we thought we would look at two smaller, cheaper pairs because most of us don’t have that kind of money, and don’t feel as though they are practical. The two pairs we have for review are the Wicked Audio Helix and Heist earphones, both of which cost less than $30.

What we like about both pairs is the fact they are much smaller, so easier to carry on your person. However, one fits in your ear and comes with a loop to keep them from falling out, ideal if you want to do a bit of jogging. The other pair is perfect if you and a friend wish to listen to the same music thanks to a handy adapter.

If you have issues with standard earbuds like those you get with an iPhone, then you might wish to consider Wicked Audio Helix earphones because they come with a loop that swivels and bends, making it much easier for you to get around your ears.

This means you will be able to go on bike rides and jogging without the fear of them falling out, and having tried them out on our bike a few days ago, they do exactly what they said they will do, to an extent

You will notice just by the look and feel these are pretty standard in regard to headphones, but they do not claim to be anything else. We were impressed with the length of cord, which we know is of great importance when out jogging.

Even with the loop there are some people who will have trouble getting them to fit in their ears, but you do have a choice of three sets of buds, although because I have funny ear canals I did find they would work lose after a while and then become a little uncomfortable.

The performance of the Wicked Audio Helix earbuds were not bad considering their price because they had a very high end frequency, but they do lack in the mid-range department. Listening to playback without any changes to the music settings on my phone the reproduction was not that bad, but in order to make them sound better it did take some fine tuning. Okay, so they are no way near as good as the set of Denon earbuds I still use, but considering their price and the intended market, we were pleasantly surprised.

If you are not bothered about doing anything strenuous while listening to your music, but much prefer to hang out with a friend instead then the Wicked Audio Helix earphones could be just what you are looking for.

Once you open the packaging you will be met by the earphones and also three sets of ear buds, one of which is already on the earphones. These are small, medium and large so ideal for many ear types.

What we love about these headphones though is the extra audio jack, allowing a friend to plug in and listen to the same music. The sound quality is good, but nothing impressive and it wasn’t until I plugged my set of Denon in-ear headphones into that extra audio that I could hear the difference right away.

If you are an everyday user and are not too serious about your music, then these Wicked Audio Heist in-ear earbuds are perfect for you, but if you are expecting something a little more then you might wish to consider another pair.
