Don’t worry you’re not alone. Beyerdynamic is a Deutsch Headphone maker. The fact that they primarily built high-class focused devices, makes them almost impossible to popular among mainstream average earbuds users. But enough is enough, they may have thought. These earbuds are DX 160 IE are the latest attempt by the German company to find its feet in the mainstream market. How much have they succeeded? You’ll find out in a short time.
Open the box, these in-ears will say you hello with their 7 different sizes of silicon ear tips. They have a flat tangle-free cable and a shirt clip too. The first thing I noticed while playing MP3 was the rich taste of Bass – which is also common in some other earbuds in this list. Bass was equally good in High and Middle notes, but on upper middle notes, bass tends to overshadow volume – that is a minor downside. Another little disappointment is its treble clarity – or you can say, the lack of. In this particular regard, their little cousin DX 120 IE actually does it better.
Another feature you’ll miss, is Inline remote. It means you have to grab your phone out of your purse/pocket every time you want to receive a call/change the track. With Lack of Inline remote and treble clarity. These earbuds may be a hard pill to swallow for purists, but for those who are on tight budget and still want an excellent noise cancellation earbuds – thanks to foam ear tips – these should be an attractive option.
