Too good to be true, but true anyway
By John Hocking October 25, 2011
You can't help but be skeptical of the quality of anything that is priced below what you know the item should cost, if it's quality is decent enough to even use. On the other hand, the reviews were pretty good. The Matix Domepiece Headphones had an average rating of four out of five stars from six or seven reviewers, despite the fact that one guy gave them three stars, "because the primer gray color was darker than he expected." I mean, talk about a tough audience. You'd think their sound and comfort woud be the overwhelming factors in any evaluation. Nope, this guy loves the sound and comfortable fit. He took off two stars for color, the same way President Obama is evaluated by the Right.
The headphones are in the ball park with other $70-$80 units I have experienced - better than some, not as good as others. I especially like that they require very little power. They generate more volume than more expensive, external headphones. When plugged into my Mac, they do a great job with hard rock, and that obviously means good base. I can't comment on their durability, but since there are no moving parts, if you minimize, oh, droppng and stepping on them, I don't see why the shouldn't last a while.
For this price, these are the greatest deal in sound equipment I've ever encountered. I'm ordering several additional pair, maybe more, maybe a dozen more for Christmas gifts - for my barber, the mail person, our maid, the cook, the guy who details the cars, the girls in their summer clothes, my bother-in-law, etc., and so on.
But here's the best part. You don't have to worry about being disappointed by the the wrong shade of gray. They have sold out of gray. In fact about 90% of those left are "camo/black." Who would-a-thunk-it? Camouflage headphones. The wait is finally over. I could shoot a deer almost any early morning from my deck, but haven't because when they see my ears, they run off. Plus, I don't own a gun and am a vegetarian. That, however, does not mean I'm not well-armed to defend life, limb, home & property, and with the Camo/Black Domepiece Headphones adorning my dome, I see no reason why I couldn't sneak up on a little group of these treaspassers, illegal alien violators of my property rights, and when they dare stop for a bite of my wife's plants, beat one senseless with a baseball bat while listening to John Fogerty's, "Centerfield," or Ted Nugent's, "Deer In my Headlights: Pedal to the Metal for a Medal."
Get these. You won't be sorry. One of the best deals I've seen on DeptofGoods, or anywhere, for that matter.
