Incipio's $30 f38 headphones are a sound buy

Headphones
Hi. I'm David Carnoy, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here with the Incipio F38 headphones. This is an affordable model that is actually a little bit of a knock-off of a Fischer audio headphone. That Fischer audio headphone cost around $70, this one cost around $30 online. I haven't tried that Fischer audio model but this one certainly sounds good for the money. It offers good clarity, good amount of bass, also good comfortable level and doesn't offer a super amount of detail and it is really super tight bass but for $30 you can expect the world, and these are very good headphones for $30. They come in a variety of different colors. I do like this Espresso version, the best probably. There's also a black model but this one has a nice tone to it. In terms of their design, they do have this nice retro design and certainly from afar, they actually look like more expensive headphones. When you do handle them however, you will notice that the headbands in the ear cup do have that kind of fo-- vital quality to them but all in all a comfortable headphone. I did wear these for about an hour straight without any problem and I didn't experience any listening fatigue. Again, not super detailed but a good amount of bass and not the tightest bass but for $30 a very solid headphone unless there's no integrated remote with a microphone so you can make cellphone calls a lot people like that feature. This model does not have it. But all in all, a good sounding solid budget headphone and I could certainly recommend them at $30. I'm David Carnoy and those are the Incipio F38 headphones. Thanks for watching.
