For the longest time, there had been about only one name in the noise canceling headphone market. They provided a good product but at a high price. Enter ELEPAWL and the EP6 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones that offer the same technology but at a very reasonable price.
Why noise canceling headphones? If you have never experienced this technology you are in for a real treat. I remember the first time I switched on my pricy cans inside an airplane and wow, was I ever surprised. Goodbye screaming kids, goodbye engine drone, hello sanctuary. And sound quality does not suffer either as the headphones still allow you to enjoy your favorite music. The ELEPAWL EP6 units are lightweight and comfortable. They feature a rechargeable lithium-ion battery good for up to 30 hours on a single charge. And there is a built-in microphone so you can make hands-free calls with them on. They can be used with a cord or completely wireless via Bluetooth connectivity.
The black and chrome headphones are very stylish while also being very comfortable to wear. The cushions do not cause any fatigue, allowing for long listening/wearing sessions such as a commercial airline flight or extended gaming session. The EP6s feature 40mm Neodymium drivers for clear, accurate sound reproduction covering the full listening spectrum. In my testing, I found the on/off settings to each offer a different sound reproduction – both clear but I would liken them to that of a DJ/club style with the noise cancellation switched off and near-field monitors in a recording studio with the noise cancellation on. I auditioned various genres of music including classical, jazz, rock, and pop. Vocals were more present and clearer with ANC on while ANC off really boosts the bass. Guitars and acoustical instruments also benefitted from listening with ANC on.
ELEPAWL EP6 Active Noise Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Headphones can be found at Amazon.com or at www.ELEPAWL.com. They are priced at $69.99, which is well below what you will pay for those big name units. For everything the ELEPAWL EP6 headphones offer, this is a great deal. The attractive kit includes the headphones, storage bag, USB charging cord, audio cable, and user manual.
