Good sports headphones are hard to find – although most people enjoy listening to music during their workout. With the Transform Wireless headphones, Soul wants to create a way to comfortably listen to music during training – wirelessly and with a lot of comfort.
Our practical test will show whether this really succeeds.
Design and Workmanship
The sports headphones are supplied in a surprisingly high-quality packaging that allows immediate conclusions to be drawn about the primary area of use of the headphones included. In addition to the Transform Wireless headphones, the front of the pack features a background of sports enthusiasts. Once the package was opened, the clear emphasis on the intended use continued – the entire inside is dedicated to sporty people with headphones. Soul knows how to make clear what the product stands for. In addition, the packaging arouses the interest of the observer – which is certainly in the interests of the manufacturer.
The latter itself is enthroned almost majestically in a dark holder, which – as it turns out after opening the protective cover and the first touch – is unfortunately made of plastic. Fabric or at least upholstery would certainly have been more aesthetically valuable here. Ultimately, however, we do not want to evaluate the packaging of the product, but the headphones themselves in terms of their manufacture.
It can be seen here that the headphones are comparatively unobtrusively designed and have a harmonious, discreet colour scheme. Black clearly dominates. It is broken up by golden elements, which can be found, for example, on the padding of the auricles visible on the outside, in the form of the golden logo on the auricles and in the form of the lettering “Soul” on the adjustable headband. All golden elements are matt, which fits very well to the generally rather unobtrusive design of the headphones.
The workmanship appears to be of high quality. Despite their remarkably low weight, the headphones look stable. The materials used are well processed and feel good.
