Man, do these radius Atomic Bass earphones pack a punch! I consider myself an armchair audiophile -- I can tell the difference between what sounds good, and what doesn't sound good, but want the audio hardware to do the work without having to fiddle around with settings. We all know that most smartphones are lacking in the deep bass department, and Android phones are no exception. This can be helped a lot, with the right headphone design. The radius set has an impedance rating of 32 ohms, versus a standard set of earphones at 16 ohms. This allows lower power devices (like Android phones) to drive them easier, creating more sound at much less power loss. Then you factor in the angled design that seals well in any ear -- thanks to the three sets of different sized earcaps, and you simply get better sound.
They're also built pretty well. The earphone body is solid aluminum, the earcaps are very soft silicone, and the wiring is rubber coated right down to the gold plated plug. The U-shape wiring design is perfect for keeping your phone in your shirt pocket (remember when you used to do that Evo 4G and Droid X users?) or on your desk. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone. You can grab a set of radius Atomic Bass earphones in several colors, for $29.95 in the Android Central store. Full specs and a set of pictures of the set after the break.
