Tivoli Audio Radio Silenz headphones

Headphones
I'm David Carnoy executive editor for cnet.com and I'm here with the Tivoli audio radio silence headphones. When we start I think that I'm a fan of -- and always -- the company's tabletop radios and portable pal radios. Which offered excellent blend -- design and performance that makes it easier overlook their relatively high price tags. Alas the company's first foray into the head -- market is a different situation altogether. Instead of coming up -- -- unique high quality product. To at least put something together that's both on original and decidedly entry level -- slapping 150 dollar price tag on it. Reason I say under riddle is that the -- -- headphones look very similar to the -- electronics HT 21 headphones. Which cost 25 dollars and Amazon. That's right 25. Dollars. Yes the radio silence has -- -- signature would trim on the ear cups and also includes noise canceling circuitry. But otherwise the headphones had the same design right down to the cheap plastic Stewart -- it ships with the headphones. On the plus side the headphones actually look pretty nice are lightweight. Fold up for transport and are fairly comfortable for on your headphones but they just aren't all that luxurious. True to headphones to look the same on the outside but sound altogether different and in fact the radio -- and HT 21 do you sound different. The -- -- offers more bass but in the process sacrifices some detail. HT 21 on the other hand seems a bit thin by comparison but offers a touch more clarity. Both however -- lacked any sort of refinement associate with higher end headphones. I expected tighter base in more detail from these guys particularly because I have a lot of respect. The sound -- Tivoli radios deliver instead there's something a little bushy and -- sounding about these headphones that puts them squarely in the sub fifty dollar camp. Well they don't sound bad they don't sound all that good. The noise canceling was also disappointment. When activated it beauty is an effective and when you're listening to quieter music or gaps and playback he could hear discernible -- This is par for the course for noise canceling headphones. But it seemed much more knows -- on this model. Look effectively put these out for 79 dollars or even 99 dollars -- would have been more willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and be less critical. The wood trim does add a nice touch to design and headphones but the 15999. Price -- strikes me as cynical. Sure plenty of other companies -- tweaked and polished off the shelf designs in various consumer electronics products. The radio sounds an HT 21 headphones are just too closely separated at birth. And stands to be better off with the compact super comfortable boast a week two or a -- to -- headphones percent -- more affordable HD 238 which is being replaced by the HD 239. Those on your models don't offer the active noise cancellation of these headphones but they do passively seal -- a good amount of sound. And you won't have to deal with hearing that audible history wider tracks gaps and played back. I'm David Carnoy and those of the Tivoli audio -- silence.
