Updating older hf amplifier
With all of my experience, I’ve got a pretty good handle on what sounds good out there and what’s worth your hard-earned dollars.And then there’s our panel of experts: In addition to myself, we had Brent Butterworth, a Wirecutter AV writer with decades of experience in the audio field for publications such as About.com, Home Theater, Sound & Vision, and many others; Geoff Morrison, writer for CNET and Forbes, and AV editor here at The Wirecutter; and John Higgins, a session musician and music director (with a music master’s degree from the University of Southern California), music/audio teacher, and occasional freelance audio reviewer.We’ll talk more about this topic later, but in short, any inexpensive set of headphones may break. But know this: If your Delta set dies, you will get a replacement pair from Brainwavz.It will take about a week, however, from first email to when you get your new pair.
If you own an i Phone and need a cheap in-ear pair with an i OS-compatible mic, or if you’re an Android user and the absence of volume control is a dealbreaker for you, our previous pick, the Brainwavz Delta, is your best option.
You should keep that in mind when deciding if you really need a volume control on your cheap headphones’ remote.
If you want to spend the absolute least amount possible and still get quality sound, you can’t beat the Panasonic RP-TCM125 Ergo Fit.
For anyone paying attention, that’s the same price as a replacement pair of Apple Ear Pods—and the Y20U’s sound is vastly superior.
The Y20U has more depth to its sound than any of our picks in this category to date.
