[ Music ] >> Jasmine France: Looking for super portable headphones but find ear buds uncomfortable? Then on ear models are a great place to start. I'm Jasmine France and I'm here with the Phiaton PS320 headphones; the bare bones set that offers a comfortable fit and good sound quality but not much else. They have a look that's similar to the Bose on ear headphones which is a direct competitor. It's understated enough to appeal to a wide variety of users. I'm particularly fond of the textured leather overlay on the outside of the ear cups. I think it looks really nice. Also the soft padding on the ears and the head bands make these headphones comfortable to wear for an extended periods, which is something that is important to any frequent flier. What I don't like is that the single cable descending from the left ear cup up here is neither removable nor retractable and it also seems quite thin and all of these things cause some concern for durability. Also, although the PS320 headphones offer impressive audio quality they don't come with many extras or features. The package includes a simple case that's not even hard sided and the head phones fold down for compact storage but that's about it. [ Background music ] >> It would be nice to get a little bit more for the $200 price tag. All in all though the Phiaton PS320 headphones are still a reasonable option for travelers and commuters who loathe ear buds. I'm Jasmine France for CNET. ^M00:01:12 [ Music ]
