With a brand name that is well known in the audio industry, Maxell provide their latest offering into the budget-range headphones market. Are they relying on their reputation seeing them through? Or are the AMP-B’s the real deal?
Build Quality & Design
When it comes to design, this model from Maxell is certainly eye catching. A blue tribal- style design on top of a black base certainly gives these headphones a unique look, but that may very well work against them, depending on the customer.
For example, an adult who is looking for headphones to wear on their commute to work in the morning may not appreciate the design. It screams alternative teenager at you and that may very well be the audience they’re marketing this product towards. If so, then it could be considered a great touch.
Aside from the color scheme the headphones have ear-pads that swivel, accommodating any budding DJ’s out there, and this feature also allows you to pack them flat when they aren’t in use.
The cord appears to be fashioned from pretty tough rubber, and the headphone jack is of a gold-plated style. Tangling and wire-splitting shouldn’t really be a problem here.
