KitSound Clash Evolution
My Best Tech Find 2016
As we start 2017 I wanted to share with you My Best Tech Find of 2016. As some may know I work as an infrastructure Architect so Tech & Gear are a large part of my life. To stand out as my best tech find for the year the product has to be good value, exceed expectations but also do the basics well.
The KitSound Clash Evolution’s came to my attention on Black Friday, Vodafone were selling them through their eBay outlet for £15 ( yes £15). Normally I wouldn’t have given them a second glance but a friend has had some good experience with their products so I took a punt and bought a pair.
The product far exceeded my expectations when opening the quality packaging, even more so when I got inside to find the headphones come with a nice “shell like” carry case, similar to what I have with my Bose QC35’s.
Inside there are the headphones neatly folded along with a audio jack and USB charge cable and a small well illustrated instruction manual.
Holding the headphones I was immediately struck by how solid they felt and the soft cushioning on the headphones themselves boded well for wearing.. The plastic parts of the headphones are the only part that feels less solid than the other parts, this is no bad thing but I am really looking for bad points at this point and its the only physical part that warrants a mention
This part was a doddle, if you have setup Bluetooth before its the same as most devices, a long press of the power button and you are in pairing mode and my Iphone 7 plus was linked.
WOW! That was the first of mine and anyone who has tried them impression. I own and use Bose QC35’s daily and whilst these are not noise cancelling the sound quality and rich bass and clear high & low tones are not far off from the Bose experience. I’ve thrown Classical, Trance, Drum & Bass, Pop and videos at these and I still cant find a weak point with them. Although they aren’t noise cancelling the comfortable closed feeling of the headphones immerses you in the sound very well and all but loud or sudden sound changes can be picked up.
Being a Bluetooth headset if you are pairing these with your phone they are capable of taking a call, Ive tried this a few times and the quality has been good.
The case they come in is very handy if like me you chuck a pair in a bag, they fit well and are protected.
Where To Buy:
Amazon have them for sale at £29 at the moment which is still a steal in my opinion but keep a look out for daily deals on sites like hotukdeals as retailers are regularly undercutting each other.
If you are after a pair of inexpensive Bluetooth headphones and don’t fancy shelling out £250+ on a pair of Bose then you should get yourself a pair of these, you wont be disappointed.
