Design and Comfort
The earphone head beam (purple part) is made of ABS plastic material, and the surface is not made into a shiny design, which increases wear resistance and is also more resistant to dirt. There is a decompression head beam pad (orange part) on the inside, and the leather material brings a delicate skin-friendly texture. There is a sponge inside, and it will spring back immediately after being pressed down, and it will not collapse when worn for a long time.
The retractable head beam and the metal head beam bracket can be adjusted freely according to the shape of the head, and the elasticity is moderate without clamping the head. What’s more, the metal bracket has a longer service life than the plastic bracket and is not easy to break. Through the test, the expansion and contraction of the head beam is relatively smooth.
The outer material of the orange earmuffs is exactly the same as the design of the head beam pad, and the inner part is flexible memory foam, which feels very comfortable after fitting the ears. Since the head beam can be adjusted, there is no need to worry about wearing it for users with large head sizes. There is no discomfort in wearing it for a long time, and it is also very comfortable to wear glasses. The connection between the earmuffs and the head beam can be rotated 90°.
