    Phiaton MS400 Headphones Review - Even more details


    (Page 4 of 6 )

    Taking a look at where the ear cup attaches to the headband, you can see where extra design effort went into achieving better comfort.  The arrows highlight the dual points of rotation that allow the ear cups to more accurately fit to the ears of the wearer. There is a third point of rotation further down that allows the cups to pivot against the head, as well.

    Continuing our tour, we see above how the adjustable part of the headphones uses one solid (and quite strong) piece of metal to re-enforce the structural integrity of the headphones. I've seen way too many pairs of headphones that skimp right here with some lame mechanism.  We also see from the last couple of pictures how each side of the headphones is labeled, so you can hear the stereo channel separation as was intended.

    And now we've come to the first thing (two things actually) that I found I didn't like about these headphones. For starters, the wires going to the ear cups are quite thin and seemingly flimsy. Secondly, the cord actually splits and has a separate wire going to each ear cup. So, if you're like me and prefer to have one wire hanging off to one side, you're out of luck. 

    Don't get me wrong, I'm sure they did it for technically sound reasons, supplying the precise signal strength to both sides of the headphones, etc. And as far as the thin wires, they may have been used to keep the headphones light, or maybe because of the price they'll be handled in a more delicate manner than many less expensive headphones. But for whatever the reason, these wires seem to be a physically weak point in these headphones.
