SMS Audio Sync by 50 wireless headphones

 

50 Cent's wireless headphones deliver long battery life and big sound, but they're not the best overall value.

Slick sturdy design; Excellent battery life; Sync four headphones to single audio source

No active noise cancellation; Expensive; Can't use all the buttons in wireless mode

Click to EnlargeThe $399 SMS Audio Sync by 50 wireless headphones draws a lot of inspiration from their namesake, 50 Cent. They're big and flashy with a healthy dose of swagger and can put on a show. Beneath the shiny veneer, though, lies a pair of...

SMS Audio Sync by 50

 

Bass boost option allows you to choose between two listening modes. Comfortable design. Cable?with call and microphone controls?for wired listening is included

Highly sculpted sound signature is not for everyone. Bass distorts at high volumes when using wireless function. Dongle and line of sight to the headphones is required for wireless audio

With distortion issues on wireless playback, attention-grabbing flashing lights, and a highly sculpted frequency response, the SMS Audio Sync by 50 suffers by trying to do too much.

SMS Audio SYNC by 50 wireless headphones review

 

Ah, celebrity-endorsed headphones -- whether it's Beats by Dre or Soul by Ludacris, you've always gotta wonder whether their actual sound-reproduction

Wide soundstage, good clarity ; Lightweight fit ; Dependable wireless connection

Toss-up functionality ; Poor noise-isolation ; Middling bass-boost performance

SMS Audio's Sync by 50 headphones are an intriguing wired / wireless hybrid, but they aren't worth the price as-is. Here's hoping for gen two.

Sync by 50 wireless headphones review

 

The first news of a 50 Cent headphone line came at CES 2011, where the hip-hop mogul announced a partnership with Sleek Audio for the Platinum line of wireless headphones. Just a few months later Sleek confirmed that the parties had terminated their...

Wireless streaming works well ; Comfortable to wear ; Sound quality is good

Large footprint makes for difficult storage ; Dongle is flimsy and easy to lose ; Hardware controls don't always function

50 Cent's first headphone offering takes on the venerable Beats by Dre, but can they beat the Doctor at his own game?

SMS Audio SYNC By 50

 

Not to be left in the dust by Monster's now finished relationship with Beats Audio and their relationship with Dr. Dre, SMS Audio has partnered with their own rapper to produce another competing model of headphones. While the choice to make their cans...

Interesting design ; Wireless ability frees users from cords

Low audio quality ; Very pricy

The fatal flaw of heavily-marketed headphones.

SMS Audio SYNC By 50

 

The SYNC by 50s aren't inherently bad, they're just terrible for $500.

Interesting design.; Wireless ability frees users from cords

Low audio quality; Very pricy

If you’re seriously considering buying the SMS Audio SYNC By 50s, be aware that they fall short in frequency response, tracking and distortion, and that’s before you turn on the rather outdated RF wireless, which makes the performance even worse. While...
