Up for review today I have headphones, not just any headphones, but the new EVAC from Wicked Audio. The EVAC headphones are budget priced yes, but they sound pretty good overall. The headphones are made well, they’re lightweight and they comes with nicely padded earpieces and headband so you can wear them comfortably for long periods of time. The headphones can are also collapsible so you can easily take them with you if you need be. So read on to learn more…

The Wicked Audio EVAC headphones come in sort of a double box, well it’s cover on the actual box.

The box does have a little window so you can see the headphones and of course there’s specs and features listed in it.

Inside you won’t find much, just the headphones and a user guide.

The headphones have a rather large range of adjustment so they should fit everyone.

The earpieces have the Wicked Audio logo on each of them. The earpieces are plastic and seem sturdy enough.

Each earpiece is nicely padded for comfort as well.

The cord is four feet long and it’s braided with a gold plated connector on the end. The braided cord is rather important to me, it doesn’t tangle as easily and it’s more sturdy than a regular one is.

The EVAC headphones can be folded up for travel, which is nice.

So let’s start with comfort here. The headphones do have a nice cloth padded headband which makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time. They are very lightweight, so you really don’t feel them on. The ear pads are soft and very padded, they cover your ears almost fully and they do keep a lot of the noise out.

The sounds quality is a bit questionable with the EVAC. They sound hollow to me, that’s the best way to describe it. It’s mostly bass, with not much treble at all really. I like a nice balance of the two, and these really don’t offer it sadly. The sound isn’t bad overall, but it’s just missing something. The headphones can get nice and loud though, and there’s not much distortion at high volume levels.

The EVAC can also be folded for travel, but I think a case would be nice for them, but then again for under $25 you really wouldn’t expect a case.

 

 

 

Conclusion

The Wicked Audio EVAC headphones are very inexpensive, coming in at under $25. The headphones are well made, the headband and ear pads are comfortable, they’re lightweight and overall they are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

The EVAC headphones though do sound a bit hollow to me. I tried them with three different devices and it was all the same. The main issue I think is that they don’t offer much treble, it’s mostly bass and I personally like to have a nice mix or balance of the two and these just don’t seem to offer that. Some people like bass heavy music, and that’s fine but even with the heavy bass they sound rather hollow.

The cord is nice and long, coming in at about four feet, making it good enough for most any use I would think. The headphones are also collapsible making it easy to transport them if need be.
