Archeer AH07 Headphone Quick Review by mark2410
Thanks to Archeer for the sample.
Price: £41 (there seems to a promotion, 2KNZYW27 will get you £6 off just now) or US$60 (but there is US$11 off with the code KQ5W7MHD)
Specifications: Bluetooth Version: 4.0, Talk Time: 14H, Stand-by Time: 540H, Playback Time: 14H, Operation Range: 10m/33ft, Impedance: 32Ω, Sound Pressure Level: 130±dB, Frequency Response: 20Hz-20KHz, Weight: 255.5g, Dimensions: 200*180*65mm
Accessories: You get a micro USB cable and a 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male cable to use them wired.
Build Quality: very nice, the fit and finish is great for something of this price. They look nicely put together.
Isolation: Well it’ll matter how good a seal you get but I didn’t get that great, thus their isolation wasn’t superb. I’d be fine to use out and about but I think on a bus would make me that guy who’s irritating everyone around them. That means not one for a flight or Tube commute, though better than nothing. Remember it’s still easily sufficient to get yourself run over if you don’t use your eyes.
Comfort/Fit: the fit was great, on they went and done. Comfort, well they did sit on my ears and thusly that meant that 2 hours was about my limit before my ears wanted them off. Not ever painful or anything but that constant pressing, the pressure made my ears need to come up for some fresh air.
Aesthetics: I like them. Their big brushed metal side band bit, it may be entirely cosmetic but hey, I’m a sucker for bare metal so cosmetic or not I liked it. They just plain look good. Okay so the buttons are a little plastic looking and feeling but big whoop. The things cost 40 quid and that’s pre discount code, delivered to your door. They may be priced el cheapo but you’d never really know it to look at them.
Sound: Oh there is no getting away from the fact there are all oubt the bass. They really are really very bassy, no, they really, really are. Hardly a shocker that a consumer priced headphone is super bassy is it. What’s a bit more unusual is that it’s quite good. The bass is quite well styled, I slightly soft impact but backed up a ton of power. The mids are recessed and overshadowed but have good clarity. A tiny bit warmed and thickened but plenty enough resolution given its target market and perhaps more notably, for its price. For a closed, Bluetooth, attractive headphone that costs £41 (£35 with promo code atm) that’s a cracking offering. The bass sure it’s a bit over blown, over heavy, its shifts a whole ton of air and I find it wearing on my little ears but for bassheads its smokin’ hot stuff. They are made for bassy poptastic chart topping stuff, where power and rhythm are considerably more important that detail and nuance. These are boisterous and not subtle though I must credit the treble as being really quite easy on the ear.
Value: Cracking good value. Cheap, looks great and thumping ponding bass capabilities.
Pro’s: Epic sized bass. Potently assertive bass. Good looks. Good clarity. Cheap.
Con’s: Bass is very highly dominant.
