Hi everyone! Thank you so much for your patience and support. Without further ado, we’re proud to announce our crowd funding campaign! We need all the help we can get to make this crowd funding successful and turn these headphones into a reality! Click here to back our project and to check out our slick video. See you there!
This is not necessarily a thing I personally want to own, but it IS a product I have been saying I am legitimately surprised is not widely available in stores across the world for years now.
How are these things only 150 bucks? I’ve been DJing for the past 17 years and during that time I’ve gone through about 3 to 5 pairs of headphones a year. I’m a massive headphone junkie. At any time I can grab at least 2-3 pairs of headphones within arms reach of where I am. Everything from over the year DJ headphones, on ear monitors, in ear monitors, ear buds, life style headphones, surround sound wireless gaming headphones… lots of options really. So I’m shocked that these cost 150 and claim to pack in all these features.
I can tell you right now that there’s no way these are going to be of a high build quality. There’s just no way that at 150 bucks you’er going to get good sound from two sources, lighting, durability and resilience AND have them look good.
There are so many questions I have… who’s your audio engineer? Where are you buying your drivers from? what materials are you making them out of? How many flat bends can the headphones do? What’s your connector made out of? How long does the battery last? How much do these things weigh?
I admire their drive to make a product that people want, but at 150 bucks they’re going to have to cut corners. A life style headphone needs to look good and be practical. Take a look at something like V-Moda Cross-fade LPs which are what I use when DJing certain gigs and want an over the year headphone.
I know that these headphones can be dropped from 6 feet (or fall off my head) at least 70 times. I know that the headband can be bent flat around 10 times. I know that they’re made of steel, kevlar, memory foam and the connectors are 24 karat gold… these are all important factors to me. Or how about AiAiAi’s TMA-1 headphones. They’re in a similar price point. I know that the drivers are made out of titanium I know that I can switch out the ear pads and that the cables are lockable and also made of 24k gold. I also know that they were tested out by people I respect like A-Trak, Boize Noize, RJD2, Tiga, MSTRKRFT and Bookashade….
So who tested the AXENTWEAR headphones? Who’s reviewed them? We don’t even have a video of a DJ or anyone saying that they sound good!
You’ve got a cool looking product but until the reviews are in there’s no way you’re getting my 150 bucks. And I hope other people seriously take into consideration what kind of an investment this is.
