Let us ask you a few questions: what is your favorite song? Songs? How about your favorite group? Favorite soundtrack? Now that you have a song or two stuck in your head, imagine how amazing they always sound with the volume cranked up. We all love music and the better the sound quality the more enjoyable the experience, no matter whether we are dancing at a party, grooving to our workout playlist or enjoying our very own music bubble with some headphones on. These days, we all carry around an almost limitless music collection on our smartphones and of course the best way to enjoy it is through the right set of headphones (over-the-head or in-ear). We are always on the lookout for affordable, high-quality headphones and hence we jumped at the chance to try out the Creative Drum Hi-Res Earphones from the good folks at Tunai.
This is the first foray into making earphones from Tunai, after the launch of their bluetooth receivers. They started with a very successful Kickstarter campaign last year and now have made the Drum earphones available to all. We are a sucker for eye catching design and right off the bat this product blew us away as soon as we opened the mail package. A sleek, square box with cool graphics on the outside and a nice foam insert inside to nestle the Drum earphones. The Drum earphones look great out of the packaging as well, with a great combination of black and variety of metallic colors to choose from. The earbuds are covered in a soft rubber that feels silky smooth in the ear and doesn’t slip, even after long use. The wires are soft and flexible and haven’t really tangled into a crazy knot yet even after being in use for a couple of weeks.
So they look great but how do they sound? There is good news on that front too. They sound great! Yes they may not have the sound quality of high-end (and pricey) headphones but they sure hold their own. The bass and treble come out nicely balanced, the different instruments sound clear and very low distortion when the volume is cranked up. In this price range of around $30, the Tunai Creative Drum offers almost everything you could ask for. There are now many wireless headphones in the low price range as well but many don’t sound great and bluetooth is still very much a battery hog. I love that I can buy a couple of these Drum earphones so I’ve always got one close at hand – maybe throw one in the gym bag and a second in my office bag. Music is magic for me, so I don’t really know all the technical details of how they make such great sound come out of such small earphones but if you are so curious you can learn all about it on their site. All in all, these are a very solid pair of earphones with a great price. These unique, design-forward Drum earphones could also be a great gift for Dad or even a back-to-school survival kit to help keep the peace among the roomies.
Now one of our fabulous readers can get their hands on one of these Drum earphones in the color of their choice, all thanks to our partners at Tunai letting us run a giveaway:
