Noontec's Zoro HD headphones sound good
-I'm David Carnoy, Executive editor for CNET.com.
And I'm here with the Noontec Zoro HD headphones.
Last year Noontec made a little bit of a splash in the budget audio file headphone market with its original Zoro headphones, which looked a lot like the Beats Solo On-Ear headphones but sounded more neutral and work well with a variety of music.
The Zoro HD model looks virtually identical to the original Zoro,
but this model cost around $30 more at right around $100.
It also sounds better, not surprisingly.
It offers more refined sound, a little bit better bass and just a little bit better all around.
And what's impressive about this headphone is that it competes well with headphones that cost more in the $150 to $200 range.
It's also a comfortable particularly for an On-Ear model and it comes with a flat core design that also has a one button in-line remote with microphone, so you can use it for cellphone
It does come with a protective carrying bag and these headphones do fold up.
One of the small issues with them however, is the build quality.
They are very plastiky headphones.
So this is clearly a better sounding headphone than the Zoro.
It's also a decent Beats Solo alternative, however, if you like a lot of bass, this probably isn't gonna cut it for you.
I'm David Carnoy and that's the Noontec Zoro HD On-Ear headphone.
