In case you missed it, Goal — sure, that Goal — is promoting a brand new line of electronics equipment beneath its new Heyday model. Together with a collection of iPhone circumstances and cables, Apple Watch bands and screen-protecting bumpers, Goal’s making some transportable audio merchandise, together with Bluetooth audio system and headphones.
One of many extra intriguing merchandise is a set of modestly priced ($60) over-ear wi-fi headphones which have someway been labeled Heyday On-Ear Wi-fi Headphones on Goal’s web site. They are not on-ear headphones, which is an effective factor — I favor over-ear — however I’ll proceed calling them by their given identify till Goal modifications it (after studying this write-up, one hopes).

So far as the design goes, they appear sturdy however are fairly light-weight at eight.three ounces (236 grams) and have properly padded earcups. They’re comfy to put on, have a clear, trendy look and fold flat, however they do not include any type of carrying case. The one criticism I’ve heard is that the headscarf (at its crest) places strain on the highest of some folks’s heads and creates discomfort. You possibly can alleviate that by opening up the headphones a bit, however then they will not suit your head as snugly.
One good selection the designers made was to maintain the Heyday model label small. You barely discover that it is stamped on a tiny plate on the base of the headscarf on both aspect. The headphones are available in three colour choices: My pattern was the tan and gold model, but it surely additionally is available in grey and gold or black print and gold.
The controls are easy. There is a energy button and a set of small quantity management buttons. I had no issues pairing and re-pairing with an iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. You faucet the ability button to pause or play music and reply or finish calls. To maneuver tracks ahead, you maintain down the volume-up button. To skip again a monitor, you maintain down the volume-down button.
As for the sound, it is effectively balanced total and does not intensify the bass (in the event you’re in search of actually huge bass, this is not the mannequin for you). It isn’t extremely outlined or articulate (the sound tilts heat), which you would not count on from $60 headphones, however there’s simply sufficient of presence increase within the treble to carry the element out and provides the sound a little bit of sparkle.
