kenen Darkinon 852 headphones v2

The Kanen series headphones of Darkiron, which are known as Darkiron 852, are aimed for those who prefer stylishly designed corded headphones with decent sound quality, at a competitive price. Their key advantage is that they are mobile, foldable, light, comfortable and come in a wide range of impressive colors. Their custom-fit headband makes them pretty comfortable, while the special microphone feature makes switching between music and calls super convenient. Seems quite appealing so far, let’s dig in a bit deeper to see what more that the Darkiron 852 headphones have to offer.

Key Design and Features

With Kanen headphones, we are speaking of foldable lightweight adjustable headphones, so the prerequisites have to be met. The Darkiron 852 are suitable for various outdoor activities like travel, work and gym sessions.  In contrast to the headphones that cannot be folded and thus never fit in the travel bag. Kanen’s 90-degree folding ear cups makes it the best travel companion allowing you to as easily fold it up and store it in your travel kit. The cables are braided flat and come with a single 3.5mm L shaped jack allowing you safe transport as while storing you can fold the cables without bending.  While working, gaming or taking a jog in the morning you can adjust it as per your suitability. The adjustability feature comes in handy as you can share it with friends and family. Weighing just 9.9 ounces makes them pretty weightless. The cables are totally tangle-free saving you a headache. Finally, the 5 trendy color options make them pretty attractive, especially for the women and teens.

Sound Quality

The standard 40 mm drivers cannot go unnoticed, but what grips my attention is their awfully wide frequency range, from 20Hz to 20 kHz which gives you crystal clear highs, mids and lows. Once you put on the high definition stereo headphones and listen to a few songs you realize the superb sound clarity. These are 21st century headphones and the precise natural listening experience proves its huge leap ahead of the traditional stereo. The On ear noise isolation pads add to the headphones rich and dynamic sound quality by blocking all other unwanted noises.

Comfort and Build

The Kanen headphones are built to be quite tough and resilient making them a fabulous athletic headphone as well as can be put to professional/daily use. The flexible leather headbands totally fit my head and didn’t slip off. I have trouble finding the right fit for my small head but these self-adjusting headphones made listening all the more comfortable. Talking of comfort, the weightlessness of Kanen headphones helps to a great extent, allowing me to watch multiple episodes of my favorite series painlessly. I personally dislike charging gadgets every now and then, and unlike the wireless ones Kanen headphones save me that charging trouble. The in-line mic control headphones impressed me thoroughly as it is compatible with a vast array of devices such as PC, tablets, MacBook, Sony, Android, Kindle, Samsung and Apple devices, iPhone, iPod, iPad, and other trending smart phones. The Omnidirectional microphone features comes with a mute button for handiness. Furthermore, one key to switch between music and calls add extra convenience.

The Verdict on Kanen Headphones

As far as the price goes, it is pretty decent. If you are looking for quality headphones that don’t cost you a fortune then these are the right pick. The sound is excellent, the design is smart and the bright color range is quite attractive. Though, some users have found the precision of Kanen headphones’ feature to block all outside noise is faulty. I suppose, this issue might come up when using the headphones on a really busy area.

To sum it up, quite a good bargain that will not let you down. Sound clarity, tangle-free cables, a wide frequency range, adjustable headphones to fit your head, and added microphone benefit. The Kanen On-Ear Headphones are of premium quality that is totally worth the money spent.
