    Zalman ZM-DS4F Headphone Review - Page 2

    Performance and conclusion

    I tested these headphones on my iPod, as well as PC for both games and music.

    Keeping in mind the extremely affordable price point of $29.50, I was very impressed with the sound quality.

    I found that the midrange/lower midrange was noticeably stronger, but without aversely affecting the overall sound reproduction. The acoustics and higher end tones were slightly less pronounced, but were still reproduced accurately and distinctly. The lower end tones also came out strongly with a solid feel; however as with headphones of this size - donít expect any chest thumping bass. The sound levels can also be turned up to deafening levels without any distortion in the output.

    A small word of warning for those who are looking to use these in crowded public areas Ė the sound insulation on these headphones isnít particularly strong, so the sound will become fairly audible in the surrounding area once you get past a low-moderate volume.

    The ZM-DS4F is not designed or optimized for use in games, as evidenced by the lack of extra features such as a microphone or multi-directional sound output; however they do a solid job for casual gaming and have no issues reproducing in game effects such as gunfire, ambient sounds, or voice reproductions.

    Overall, the Zalman ZM-DS4F headphones are a welcome addition to the headphone market. Their small, lightweight and foldable design allow them to be carried with ease in a backpack or handbag -great for those who are looking to listen to portable audio and would like options besides using in-ear solutions.

    Additionally, the sound quality at a very affordable price point makes them an excellent - and definitely recommended option.

    Final Score: 75%
