THOMSON HED 430
This is a special headphone case of the failure product listing. It has been bought at least 6 years ago with the scope to be used with our television that is 3-4 meters far as its cable is really log , very logs about 5 meters!
The design is similar to the AKG deign with a belt below the main skeleton. Nice design and not tough to the ears as the the previous posting of the Sennheiser model . the only difference is the very thin plastic deign that seems to be easily breakable . The phone sleeves have a different feeling than the others with also a strong sense of plastic that seems a bit annoying
Once again the first plus is the cable length . It is ca 5 m . The cable used is double possibly coaxial as with the Sennheiser head-models
Another very interesting with it , is the built in-line attenuator that quite close to the headphones
A third also more interesting is the provided plug adapter from 3.9 to 1.9 mm as below
But here the interesting pros stop
The sound is very bad. tested with the Carrefour earbuds/EAR 23 (here is as a reference ). the sound level is same as with these earphones . But they sounded quite bad : they lack soem bass (as shifted upwards ) little treble and sound as plastic.
I think that the oly of value for these earphones is .... the adapter !!!! You normally cannot find easily this type of adapters. The main base /socket is too short from the similar adapters and very good for using it to my R75 ICOM receiver !!
Therefore : 4/5 for the whole set 2/5 for audio
