Review: EarPollution CS40 Comfort Series Headphones

Posted by at 7:47 pm on May 10, 2010

The EarPollution CS40 comfort series headphones are designed for those  listeners who want a light long wearing muff-style headphone. These comfortable  good-looking headphones make long listening periods enjoyable.

The muff style covers the ears, without enclosing them in a cup. The ear pads sit on the ear without abrasion or irritation from the light foam padded earpieces. The soft padding, enclosed in a plastic or vinyl-looking material, does not heat up your ears either. In contrast to expensive cup headphones, these lightweight headphones do not cancel surrounding noise or isolate it as other headphone products might. They do eliminate some of the surrounding sound, but maintain the ability to hear louder more insistent outside noise

The sound is well balanced with highs and lows equally represented and presented in a crisp clear stereo no clipping or distortion at high decibel levels. The bass is muted. The mid-range comes through clearly. The EarPollution CS40s reproduced the changing chords on a guitar well, but other musical nuances were lost. This lack of sensitivity may ruin the musical experience for true audiophiles.

The CS40 headphone duo-toned band has black rubber on the top, while the sides sport one of 5 eye catching high gloss finish colors including black, red, blue, pink or white. The band slides easily to accommodate different size heads, but stays put and doesn’t grab the head. The inside of the rubber-cupped earpieces is dressed up with a dot of color matching the band.

The wire and the earpieces fold up inside the headband for carrying. Although I liked the finish, I question the long-term durability, as the materials seem somewhat brittle. I just wish they had included a bag and lost the clamshell packaging. The CS40s are a good choice for an everyday muff style headphone for any music enthusiast who wants quality at a reasonable price, but doesn’t plan to move much while listening.

Pros: Light weight. Reasonable price. Comfortable. Good sound quality. Good treble.

Cons: Short Cord, No Case, Lacks Bass Depth in Most Scenarios

Rating: 4 out of 5
