Parting Thoughts

I was initially skeptical of the build quality of the EDIFIER WH500 headphones but once I put them on and listened to music, I was sold. The price point matches the build quality but the battery life far exceeds expectations.

These headphones are very light, and fold up rather compact, but they don’t come with a travel bag. The black and neon green color combo is a catchy one however the accent is mostly obscured once you wear them.

I found the headphones to be comfortable, thanks largely to the weight; however, the ear cushions are incredibly soft. These make a great starter pair of headphones for teens and those with lesser demands.
