I am not a DJ or an expert with Audio and headphones but I do like a confortable headset that provides that and quality sound. Recently I got a set of DJ style Wicked Audio Solus headphones which are quite different from previous ones I’ve owned in the past. They are stylish, with a red Wicked logo, with hinges that allow DJ’s to rotate the headset to queue music and provides a control to switch from mono to stereo the sound that is being delivered on the headset. So lets take a look at what’s in the box:
What you get in the Box:

As I said earlier I am not a DJ but I really enjoy using this headphone’s, I can listen to music while I still have one ear free. So even if you are not a DJ and you are into gadgets this headset provides a good quality sound without going deep in your pockets. I often use them to listen to music while working on homework, the headsets are conformable enough to wear for quite a few minutes because of the padded ear pieces. The band is also padded so is comfortable on your head, I am bald so this is a plus . The head band also allows for adjustment to find the right fit. Depending on the output source the sound may vary, I used them both with my Z10 and the sound was clear but not as loud as it was with my laptop. So that is something to keep in mind. Also the controls on the cord allow for some adjustments on the sound and the ON/OFF Mono/Stereo. Now this controls the sound being delivered not the source of the sound.
Pros: Most of the pros has been mentioned, the prices is not too high, provides a stylish look, both useful for regular users and aspiring DJ’s. The price is more reasonable than similar headsets and delivers a good quality sound. The headset is adjustable to find your right fit, and also allow for easily queuing music.
Cons: The device does great in high and low levels but in the mid-range it may loose a little. Good for urban, electronic and Latin, and similar genres but may not be as good for some of the more mellow Genres.
Cautionary note: If you are not careful with your gadgets then be-careful you can easily break them because of the hinges and swivel ear pieces.
