Ferrari by Logic3 R200

(Part #: CNETFerrari by Logic3 R200)
3 stars

CNET Editors' Rating

The Good Generous accessories, including an in-flight adapter, quarter inch adapter and three different cables. Folds for storage. Low resistance makes it perfect for mobile devices.

The Bad Incredibly expensive for pedestrian sound. Sound stage can be fatiguing. Can easily hear sound leakage at moderate volumes. Short cable.

The Bottom Line The R200s are supra-aural headphones that you buy for the look and brand, not the sound.

6.5 Overall

Taking part in the "Scuderia" collection, Logic3's R200 headphones very much carries on the design ethos of the Ferrari brand. Coming in a mock carbon-fibre case (that seems a little weak for any real protection), it's a bit of a surprise when you first open them, as the headphones themselves are smaller than the picture on the box.

The supra-aural headphones come in either white leather or black, with a red leather head band and, of course, the Ferrari logo emblazoned on both ear cups. The cups can fold inward for travel, be extended to fit your head shape and come with an impressive amount of accessories: an airline adapter; a quarter inch adapter; a detachable 1m, 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable; the same cable, but with a volume rocker; and the same cable again, but with an Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry compatible answer-call button. There's a separate iPhone version of the R200, which comes with a three button mic remote.

Since the cable is extraordinarily short and the impedance quite low, this is a set of cans that is clearly intended to be used with a portable music player. To test its quality though, we hooked it directly into our Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi.

First thing we found is that, clearly, the volume cable is not designed for PC use, as the sound from our headphone amp didn't come through properly until we held down the volume rocker permanently. Switching over to the standard cable gave us the sound we expected.
