Review: Klang Earphones

A slightly different Tuesday post for me, as it doesn’t really fit into the usual ‘beauty’ or ‘fashion’ theme – though this earphones certainly add something to an outfit.

I rarely listen to music as I’ve never found earphones that fit and comfortable and stay in. Having long, thick hair means I frequently dislodge them just by walking, my small ears mean they can be quite painful and my pet hate is being able to hear other people’s music as it’s too loud. I was intrigued by the Klang’s wire design, with one wire looping round the back of your neck. It doesn’t help that these earphones are beautiful.

An odd thing, perhaps, to describe earphones as beautiful. But these really are lovely, stylish, modern, yet sleek and almost feminine. They just look so much better than standard headphones.

Packaging was pretty much perfection, and the leather case for these earphones is slim, chic and just damn useful (I’m the one who shreds earphone wires whilst closing a drawer…).

But it’s no good just have pretty earphones, they have to perform too. And these do. Admittedly I don’t have much to compare them with, but I genuinely don’t notice any distortion to music compared to listening through a speaker. It’s clear, I can set the volume to a nice level – as in I can’t hear someone talking next to me, but they can’t hear my music. They stay in whilst walking, mainly due to the ’round the head’ wire preventing my hair knocking things out of place.

That said, I used them briefly with W’s phone and they didn’t seem to work particularly well…possibly as that’s an entirely new concept to me.

With the rising cost of earphones these seem a bit of a bargain at $60 (though I’m not sure if that’s American!), and ship from Sweden within a few days. To make them even sweeter, using this Sudio discount code Ninegrandstudent15 will get you a cheeky 15% off. And they’re so prettyyyyy.

Disclaimer time! I was offered a pair of these to try out, opinions are my own as always!

Are you a fan of music on the go? What earphones do you use?
