And this is the final model that was tested after finding a series of headsets for the family . That is because "....everyone reserves to have his personal Bluetooth headphone" if you think it is more logical or not. IN away yes as the anyone's ears are a bit different with different hearing or musical abilities and interests in the one side and the possible transfer of bad molecules in this very bad period as the doctors advise. As for example my wife has not any aural requisites while listening to videos while my daughter most times advises that all headphones are excellent even if i can see huge response differences in each model she used so far And believe me she already destroyed more than 5 headphones in just 5 years. all fo them were of prices below the 15 EU range
Unfortunately for the remain of the family my ears are quite prone to audio problems tat is a mix of tinnitus the persistence or the long history of using studio headphones and earphones for more than 20 years Most of these models are referred in this site.
Among the models i checked there is an interesting model from a company called Ninsheng with he code number SN-P18 as noticed in the box and the headphone. Its very funny that is not noticed in the Alixpress page. With a very short Goo-search is sold with many other names Uukuer Hanshi Bakeey etc
|in its box
This the biggest by size model in full plastic i used so far. as with the remain models bought via Ali its price was just Eu17 plus 3 shipping a rather 'cheepish' model that offers 'too much' for its price.
as with all packs the packet contains the headphones a typical USB cable for charging and a 3.9mm jumper to connect with audio gear. Instead of the typical 50 cm jumper as the remain models this is around 100 cm flat cable with red colour
The photo turned right for better view . There is a SD slot with the new design that tested to support 16 GB memories.
The typical USB D plug for charging the microphone and the 3.9 mm plug for the jumper.
...and the set of the standard buttons with multiple functions. ONe of them can select between SD, memory and wireless usage . Plugging the cable the headphone switches off
The earphones are over ear even if they seem to be quite big due to their egg shaped design , They are around 2 cm longer than the model reviewed previously
First lets mention something important. as with the previous two models i have understood that this basic category introduces a quasi 3D sound that is 'adding spatiality' that is active in stereo mode.
A second fault of this category is the "abnormal" frequency response that enhances part of the band either by 'adding' more bass or by 'adding' more middles.
The added middles etc are simply a passive way of filerting the audio spectrum by the headphone design and its base. This base design is possibly also the reason to dissipate the lower part of the band to give a 'fake' sense of 'audio widening' that can spread across the middle point - over the nose - and a few cm towards left and right. IN my opinion it helps you to listen a bit better your calling counterpart but does not help so wall if you intend to listen to the music for the optimal experience.
As with the remain models the Ninsheng model shows also this spatiality and introduces a peak on the bottom mid band. Just see this picture below as tested with the AKG DJ81, my most favorite headphone with nearly linear frequency response It is designed in a piece of paper as you may understand.
-Line in : the sounds is the same as from the Bluetooth with the same 'spatiality'
-SD card :nearly the same fidelity and spatiality as long as the volume is not very high . It supports both WMA and MP3 The first time i used it in its maximum level the sound was totaly terrible
-FM There is an FM option that first needs to auto store all channels. in the point i leave the signals are quite strong but the radio is not enough sensitive While walking cross the room the signals can also be lost and return fair in signal.
The above review is made with the Bluetooth transmitter in mind as tested before . It requires around 35-50 second to connect.
Connection via smartphone /PC. It is
shown with two identifications as stereo headphones (P18 stereo) or just as monophonic
headset (P18 hands free AG audio ) Hands free option has inferior monophonic sound . My Xiaomi smartphone could only connect to the P18 mode and only after the second try to search BT gear!
3.5/5 As in result the headphone the does a good job in its category with good but wide sound but not as the linearity a 'linear' wired studio model does In this situation it is rated as 2.5/5 Anyway though a interesting gadget , due to my hearing problems is a reason to replace it with a better model
I finally sold this model
