I-MEGO THRONE headphones review

I-MEGO THRONE headphones review

When I first opened my package from I-MEGO, I immediately began conjuring up puns and parallels to use for the review. Greeted by glossy packaging and a shiny product, I assumed these would either have the “Midas Touch” or be nothing more than gold-plated dreams. The honest truth is that they fall somewhere, comfortably, in between.

First, I should preface by saying that these are the “Deep Bass” tuned model — unique and separate from I-MEGO’s “Excellent Clarity” POISON model. With that being said, these headphones are really good. The attention to detail (see : stitching, vents, etc.) is fantastic. They’ve got a very unique and retro-inspired look with enough restraint as to not come off completely gaudy. I found them to be comfortable and fit perfectly over my average-sized ears. While the model we received did have a small blemish (chipping in the plating — assuming a review/demo dud), these headphones — aesthetically — hit their mark.

On to the sound… While I’m not a die-hard specs guy, I’ve included them below for those of you who are. These babies are LOUD. I was immediately impressed that at my maximum decibel tolerance, I was able to significantly lower the volume rocker on my Galaxy SIII.

Although the cupped (memory foam) cans do well to isolate noise, the extra “headroom” proved incredibly useful when needing a boost while out-and-about in the city (ambulances, traffic, trains, etc). The bass response is great, but the lack of mid-range shine left something to be desired. I assume this is the trade-off with the POISON model. One has great bass, one presumably has great mid-range. With that being said, even without an overly-exciting mid presence, these are a formidable offering.

Retailing at $129.99, they’re attractive, solid, and worth a test-drive — but I’d feel much more comfortable dropping somewhere around $89.99.
