Soul by Ludacris SL150 SL300 Headphones Review

Soul by Ludacris SL150 SL300 Headphones ReviewRapper Ludacris is the latest celebrity to endorse a line of trendy headphones and ear buds. Will his name and manufacturer Signeo’s product design come to signify quality audio products with cutting edge looks or are these just two more pairs of glossy plastic headphones with exaggerated bass beats SL150 Retail Packaging

Signeo has designed attractive packaging and presentation for the SL150 headphones. The front panel of the package has an oversized picture of the headphones contained inside. On the back panel, we see the well known Ludacris and his marketing statement that proclaims that, “If you’re getting a proper musical experience, you can feel it in your soul.”

There are no technical specifications listed for the product anywhere on the box or the SL150 product page on the manufacturer’s website. There is only a list of general product features on the two side panels.

Inside the box, we found a hard shelled travel case and a small paper carton containing the product manual, cell phone compatible stereo cable, standard stereo cable, and quarter inch stereo adapter. The included accessories were individually sealed in plastic bags while the headphones were wrapped in a foam packing bag before being stored inside the travel case.

The Soul SL150 headphones are a horseshoe shaped pair of circumaural headphones. We have seen this particular headphone shape in many of our past h mulberry bags eadphone and gaming headset reviews, but Soul has added its own distinctive touches that we will explain below.

The headphones’ collapsible design makes these very easy to store for those of you that are “always on the go.”

The headband is nine inches in length and it has the Soul logo prominently displayed in large silver letters. The top layer of the headband is made of plastic. During our time previously with the Beats Studio headphones, we were concerned that the very thin plastic top headband would either crack or break completely in two whenever we adjusted or re sized the product. It actually felt fragile to the to mulberry bags uch, so it is unfortunate that the SL150’s headband has a similar glossy finish plastic with the same feel.

The underside of the headband has a very unique quilted design that we have never seen in a pair of consumer headphones. This is a great touch that adds extra comfort and style to the Soul headphones.

At the ends of the headband, we see two small hinges that give the headphones its collapsible nature. The hinges fold inward and outward, not side to side. The headphones cannot be stor mulberry bags ed flat with the ear cups folded downward. As a result, the headphones may slide when these are placed on a slick or uneven surface.

On each of the SL150’s ear cups, we see a thin silver ring with the “Soul” logo inside.

With the headphones’ ear cups extended to full length, we can see a slightly angled design. Angled headbands are designed to relieve some of the pressure that a pair of headphones’ weight can place directly on top of the wearer’s head. These relocate a portion of the product’s weight so that the headphones rest closer to the forehead. We will be sure to comment on the SL150’s long term fit and comfort later in this review.

Brushed aluminum is used for the ear cup rails or “sliders” as these are sometimes called. We expected to see a series of notches for incremental sizing purposes, but instead we can feel and hear a number of distinct clicks as we collapse or extend the ear cups.

The ear pads are filled with foam rubber and these are covered with pleather. There is thin layer of mesh fabric in the oval center that keeps dust and dirt from underneath the drivers.

Once we spotted the driver choice used in these headphones, we were very disappointed. We hoped to see a fifty millimeter or larger driver, but Soul chose to use a more compact forty millimeter size. We anticipate that the high frequency clarity and the bass perception that the user experiences with these headphones will most likely be affected in a negative manner by this design choice.

The small gap that can be seen between the ear pad and the headphone baffle is definitely worth noting. The whole driver swivels on its vertical axis which allows the ear pad on top to contour to the shape of the wearer’s head.

Soul Electronics has included some very sharp accessories with the SL150 headphones.

This rigid black carrying case is one of our favorite features to see included with these or any other premium priced headphones. It has the Soul logo silk screened on its top and bottom and embossed mulberry bags on the handle of its zipper. The front of the case has a carabiner’s clip that hangs from a small loop of black fabric. Attaching the headphone case to the rest of your luggage or hanging these out of the way during cramped travel sessions should be quick and easy.

First, there’s the Birkin (named for Jane Birkin, British actress and singer) and then there’s the Kelly (coined after Grace Kelly, Hollywood actress turned princess of Monaco). Perhaps it’s only a matter of time before Hermes is stitching up a (Katie) Holmes or (Victoria) Beckham inspired bag.

But, be forewarned, these luscious leather goods are not for the penny pincher think upwards of $10,000.

Cecile Van Rookhuijzen, Hermes craftsman, sheds some light on why Birkins, Kellys and other handcrafted Hermes collections come at such a bountiful toll.

“They are lovely . . . and will last you an eternity,” she says, smiling.

Van Rookhuijzen flew in from France to stop by Calgary’s Hermes Boutique, in Holt Renfrew, last month to demonstrate her work. She is one of about 800 people, trained by Hermes, who craft at the famous design house located in the Paris suburb of Pantin.

First, she coats each thread in a thin layer of beeswax. Then, she carefully hand saddle stitches the pink hued pieces of calf’s leather together, buffs, paints and polishes the edges of the bag’s seams, finally flipping it inside out to make a size 35 Kelly bag.

The intricate process takes the craftsman several days and upwards of 20 hours to complete and she doesn’t touch a sewing machine once through the process.

As Van Rookhuijzen artfully assembles the leather, it becomes apparent why this particular purse will cost more than $8,000 to purchase.

“I do this because I love handbags. I used to be a secretary, but I was annoyed that I wasn’t doing anything with my hands,” she says.

“Everything that is made by hand, well, it’s just better looking you will keep it for life.”

Knock off purses and other fake designer goods have become big (and illegal) business around the globe. Almost anyone can purchase their very own “designer purse” if they’re willing to forgo the real deal for an ideal look.

But for Van Rookuijzen, the idea of carrying around a pseudo Kelly or Birkin bag is not only offensive, it’s completely unfathomable.

“Why would anyone want a fake bag?” she says.

The leathermaker’s intolerance for forgeries becomes understandable when you catch a glimpse of her stitching in action.

Van Rookuijzen trained first at an independent leather college before being accepted to the Hermes school, where she took an additional year of school before earning the title of craftsman.

Today, Van Rookhuijzen is one of the few Hermes craftsman who can work with crocodile leather as well as calf.

“The crocodile is very hard to work with, it’s very fragile and you can accidentally make finger prints on it mulberry bags easily if you’re not careful,” she says.

“But mulberry bags I love it. When I can work on these types of bags I am very happy. I love arts, crafts and lovely things.”

It’s an ethos shared by the Parisian company, which is steeped in tradition.

Established in 1837, Hermes began life as a family owned horse and carriage accessory and saddle making workshop. It has since grown into a high end fashion house famous as much for silk scarves, horse saddles, and luxury accessories as they are for the beautiful Birkin.

While mulberry bags the Hermes family still controls 70 per cent of the shares, the once small family business has grown into a fashion empire.
