If you’re a regular visitor of The Koalition then you know we love gaming and we love hip-hop music. The best way to listen to either of those is with some quality speakers or headphones. I’ve been looking to up the sound quality level of my game and music audio for some time, and I think I found a good solution. The iFrogz EARPOLLUTION Ronin Professional Style Headphones are an reason and affordable solution to your audio needs.
I’m no headphone expert but the three technical specifications that you might care to know about the Ronin’s is the 20-20,000 Hz frequency response. The ronin’s also have a 1.5m (5ft) cord which work great when I plugged them into my monitor for some gaming. The five foot cord left gave me a chance to back up from the screen to avoid any strain on my eyes. And the most important specification is the 3.5mm gold platted plug, which may not be a big deal but it’s basically the standard sized plug and is going to allow you to use the Ronin’s on your iPod, CD player, monitor, TV, etc. It’s also important to point out that the Ronin’s do not need to be charged or a pair of batteries to work, simply plug and play.
In terms of design, the Ronin’s aren’t too flashy when it comes to their visual aesthetic. I wasn’t a big fan of the nuclear logo design on each of the ear cups and the plastic feel of them. Despite my visual taste, the Ronin’s were a quality product that was built with durability and comfort in mind. Though I do not encourage it, the Ronin’s will hold up together even after a 6 foot drop on to hard concrete. (It happened to me) Each of the ear cups are very well padded and will provide great comfort even after long periods of time.
The Ronin’s retail at $49.99, and for that price you’ll get some good sound quality out of them. My headphone experience isn’t that wide ranged but I am familiar with what people consider the most popular headphones, the iPod earphones and Beats by Dr. Dre. I can honestly say the Ronin’s are better than the iPod earphones but not the Beats. IFrogz claims the Ronin’s can put out some great quality bass and that is a fact. Unlike the Beats headphones, the Ronin’s didn’t cancel as much outside noise as I would of like.
If you’re like me and you aren’t willing to pay more than $50 for some great quality headphones, the Ronin’s by iFrogz should be your top choice. For the retail price of $49.99, you are getting durable, comfortable, and good quality sound out of your music.
