Today we will be talking about the Symphonized NRG Premium. This entry level model might be a good choice if you want a really cheap but good quality earphone.
The first thing I want to say is that you can’t expect these to perform just like Shure or Bose models because they won’t. These brands sell a lot more expensive models and can’t be used to compare with entry levels like the Symphonized NRG Premium. With that said, let’s talk about the sound!
For the price they cost I really have to say that the sound is pretty good. The bass is deep, with decent mids and highs. However, at higher volumes you might notice a small sibilance, but nothing that will spoil your fun.
The design is also surprising for the cost. With a natural wood housing and a braided nylon cable, gives a feeling of “premium” to the product. The nylon cable is actually pretty resistant and is unlikely that you will have any problems with it. It also has a microphone, which is a nice addition.
Comfort and Fit
Just like the majority of the headphones out there, the Symphonized NRG Premium comes with 3 sizes (S,M,L) of silicone ear tips. The isolation is standard for an in-ear, as long as you choose the right size for you.
There are 8 colors available to you (brown, orange, red, silver, gold, gunmetal, purple metallic and turquoise). You can check out the colors at Amazon.
I must warn you that there are 2 versions available as well, the NRG premium and NRG 2.0 premium. The only difference between them is that the NRG 2.0 has a different cord which seems to be better. I highly recommend that you go for the 2.0.
Pros and cons
- Extremely cheap
- Good quality bass
- Premium look
- Small sibilance at higher volumes
My rating: 8.5 out of 10
Overall, the Symphonized NRG Premium is a good choice for those looking for an upgrade from those earphones that comes with the smartphone and want to pay a low price for it. A truly bang for the buck.
