With the headphones Real, Real Blue and Real Blue NC Teufel has brought its new headphone generation onto the market, which is supposed to score with first-class sound at a relatively low price. I have tested the Real Blue NC for you, the models of the series differ only in the features Bluetooth and Noise Cancelling (NC). The sound is the same on all models.
Scope of Delivery & Workmanship
The packaging of the Real Blue NC comes, as usual from Teufel, beautifully designed and without frills. A glance into the red cardboard box reveals its contents: The headphones are in a sturdy hard case with zipper. This looks chic and is high quality processed. In addition to the headphones themselves, it also offers space for a small accessory bag. This is simply attached to the fluffy inside of the case using the Velcro principle. So you always have everything you need with you. Otherwise a manual in German language is enclosed.
Let’s now turn to headphones: at 260 grams, it’s rather light, which is especially pleasant for mobile use. The main materials used are plastic and imitation leather. But that’s not bad, because everything is of high quality and the plastic doesn’t feel cheap at all. Only the artificial leather unfortunately smells a bit like chemistry, but the smell evaporates with time.
The ear cups are made of soft memory foam covered with artificial leather. This lies very soft on the ears. In the auricles there are red fabric nets, which look chic and represent a nice coloured detail.
The accessories of the Real Blue NC include an AUX cable, a micro-USB cable and an aircraft adapter. The AUX cable is rubberized and has an inline remote control with which the music can be paused and Siri or Google Assistant can be started. The only button of this remote control rattles a bit while shaking, but the pressure point is okay. The 3.5 mm plugs of the cable are very narrow and gold-plated. The Micro-USB cable is also rubberized.
All in all, the scope of delivery with hardcase and all necessary accessories is relatively extensive and the workmanship, except for the initially somewhat unpleasant smell, is very good. The more so as Teufel rather renounces noble materials and other comfort features with the headphones of the Real series, which are rather cheaply priced for their sound quality, in order to be able to focus fully on the sound.
