Even headphones are like having prescription glasses, but for your ears – EVEN H2 Headphones Review
Being a person who wears glasses, it’s a really amazing concept to me that some people just wake up and they see perfectly. Like, shouldn’t evolution have weeded out my ancestors due to their lack of visual ability? It’s a crazy concept. Equally crazy, prescription headphones. EVEN Headphones come with Earprint technology, which adapts the headphones to perform optimally for the way you hear. I’ve calibrated/optimized my home theater sound using the optimizing mic, but I never heard about optimizing headphones until hearing about Even. And I have to say, it makes a difference.
The way it works, you put on the headphones and power them on, then you perform the Earprint test. The test is a series of beeps that you respond to as you begin to hear them. I’m assuming the beeps are played at different locations and frequencies to fully encompass how you hear. After the test, the headphones will not play sound catered to the way you hear, or you Earprint. If you use the Earprint app, you are able to save multiple Earprints, this is useful if shared headphones. In my case, it was really useful so I could let others see the difference Earprint technology makes in sound.
In my personal observation and opinion, Earprint technology is a game changer. It really allows you to hear the minute details that often get washed out with headphones that use overpowering sound to seem like they’re higher quality. What’s really amazing about the Earprint technology, it helps with all the audio you listen to and not dependent on the source’s quality. You’re able to switch the Earprint on and off, so you can quickly hear the difference. It’s really hard to explain it, but listening to Phil Collins’ In the Air Tonight with Evens is the best it has ever sounded with non-studio headphones. It matches if not outperforms the $400 B&W set, and costs less too.
Aside from the Earprint technology, the Even H2 Headphones are simply amazing noise-canceling headphones. I have been able to ignore a lot of my co-workers using this, and also missed a few train stops on my commute because the sound is isolating and immersive. Also, for a wireless headset, they are also pretty powerful. The cans on the headphones can flip outwards, and turn the headphones into a pretty good portable bluetooth speaker set. They aren’t loud enough for a party, but definitely good for a small picnic.
Lastly, comfort. The Even H2 Headphones have padded cans on a slider that adjusts for height. The padding is very comfortable and engulfs the ears without heating up your ears. Even if Evens are worn when working out, your ears don’t end up sweating more than usual or anything like that. Also, it is always nice when something fits my head without being pushed to the limit. There is still room for greater adjustment even when my Size 8* head is wearing the headphones. The headset has a noticeable heft to them when picking them up, but when worn, the weight distribution has them feeling much lighter to the point of being nearly unnoticeable.
Even H2 Headphones are, in my opinion, are the best retail headphones out right now. On their own, you have a top-of-the-line pair of noise-canceling headphone that have a decent amount of power and high-quality audio. Then on top of that, you have the patented Earprint technology which caters the sound to how you listen to it, ensuring you have the best audio experience possible. The headphones themselves are very comfortable, and when combined with the technology creates a beautifully encompassing audio experience that few even come close too. Especially considering the MSRP of $149.99, they easily outperform the competition in every aspect. My EVEN H2 Headphones review gets a 5/5,
