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...

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's trying to unseat Dre, but his headphones under-deliver

SMS Audio Sync by 50 review

 

If the $399 SMS Sync headphones are any indication of 50 Cent's contribution to the audio industry, he should continue churning out rap albums, energy drinks, and Vitamin Water, but leave the gear to the professionals. These are the first Kleer...

Four SMS Audio Sync -equipped users can connect to the included wireless dongle for group listening, Kleer Wireless streams sound much better than Bluetooth, and SMS includes a 3.5mm cable to use when the battery runs out.

The delicate plastic housing and the flimsy 3.5mm dongle both suffer heavy creaks under light pressure, and the headphones don't fold up for easier transport. I'm also disappointed that the headphones don't actively cancel noise and that the single USB...

The Sync by 50 wireless headphones made the right move using Kleer technology for lossless sound, but SMS Audio needs to fix severe design flaws and lower the price before they're ready for battle.

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be aware that they fall short in frequency response, tracking and distortion, and that’s before you turn on the rather outdated RF wireless, which makes the performance even worse.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...

"These Headphones are Terrible! Total waste of money"

 

The ones I bought broke after 3 months.

They work. Poor Quality

Way over priced, Poor Quality for the Money

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Truly AWESOME Headphones with a couple minor flaws

 

I've been using the Sync by 50 for a couple weeks now. In fact, I have them plugged into my MacBook Air right now streaming Pandora as I type this review. Since I also own the Beats Studio as well, I have to say I strongly prefer the Syncs. Here's the...

+ Going Wireless + Superior sound that is excellent for all music genres + Kleer technology + Excellent noise isolation + Can be used as passive headphones + Design of transmitter dongle allows for use of devices without need to remove cases + Sturdy

- Headphone controls for track advance/reverse do NOT work when you are using the Syncs wirelessly - To charge the headphones and the transmitter dongle, you have to use the same charger - These are pretty big headphones that do not fold up

pretty good headphones when compared to my beats studio

 

first off these headphones are very expensive (i didn't pay full price, and got them with points) but you may get lucky and be able to find a good deal on them. the range on these headphones is great and the sound quality is on par with the beats...

wireless appearance sound

made of plastic fingerprint magnet EXPENSIVE

Consumer review (cnet.com)

This is how C-NET reviews a $400 set of headphones?

 

Wow, even the mighty C-Net's reviewers suffers from The i-Blinders Effect; i.e., style and packaging are what matters, the innards not so much. If you're reviewing headphones that cost more than most pro studio top-of-the-line cans, some analysis...

At least the review mentions that The Sync by 50 headphones headphones aren't noise cancelling, though that feature sometimes conflicts with better audio quality.

Umm, do they sound any good? Just saying they're "lossless" proves nothing & is probably misleading; somr compression is likely necessary for the wireless signal (not to mention the already hacked-down algorhithms for tracks stored on most players).
