Review: Frends LightWire Headphones

By Sami Mughal

When it comes to headphones, there is an extremely wide variety of products available. They come in various types as well as price ranges. Some of them target the style conscious, while the other focus on sound quality. Others go for comfort, while some also throw in other bells and whistles, such as being compatible with different phones and gadgets, so that the same set of headphones can be used to make calls, or play/pause music, with an additional microphone.
The Frends Lightwire seem to be the perfect combination of all the above. The headphones and assorted images can be found at: http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/frends-the-lightwire-headphones-snowtrooper-white-p35388.htm
Comfort:
The headphones are extremely light and sit quite nicely on your head. They also provide a cushioned support between the ear-cups and the speakers, which means that even wearing them for hours does not tire your ears or hurt them.
The headphones also feature a tangle free cord, which if you use headphones, cannot be valued enough!
Style:
The headphones feature the same format as most new and trendy headphones that is popular among today’s young. They also come in a variety of matte colours.
Functionality:
The headphones come with a built in microphone as well as a multi-function button that lets you make/end phone calls as well as play-pause music on the device you plug it into. This can be used with various devices such as Android as well as the iPhones/iPods.
I made a few calls and the sound quality is extremely good. In fact, with the surround sound effect of the headphones, it works really well and kept me going for a bit more than I would have!
Sound quality:
At the end of the day, the headphones will always be judged on the sound quality. I had a few pieces to try out the sound quality. I tried a few classical pieces as well as a few rock numbers. Each provided me with a good quality, though at times I though the sound was a bit more on the bass side of things. However, I think that was almost more down to how the headphones surround your ear to give you a surround sounds effect.
Verdict:
Simply put, the headphones are quite simply brilliant. They offer a lot for a low price. The build quality and comfort are brilliant as well as the sounds quality.
Update (12/03/13): Would just like to mention that the ear cushioned supports keep coming off. They seem to be cleverly placed in slots in the plastic, but after a little pulling and pushing of the headphones on your head as is the norm, they start to come lose. They can be attached again, but it is still quite annoying.

I have to thank www.mobilefun.co.uk for sending this out to review for me.
