Maxell DrumSoundz review
Shoving things in your ears becomes second nature once you get used to in-ear headphones, but Maxell claims to make it a bit safer with its antibacterial earpieces on the DrumSoundz.
Aside from this very sensible selling point, though the Maxell DrumSoundz are disappointing. At £20, they’re a budget option, and the sound reflects the price - they’re bassy, but lack clarity.
The design is also rather ugly. The headphones are huge, with shiny buttons that stick right out of your ears, and the in-ear part is tiny compared to the shell it’s attached to. Oval eartips are comfortable to insert, though, but the large shell means they don’t go very far into your ears.
Ultimately, the sound is central to a headphone, and these don’t really deliver anything better than even cheaper headphones.
