In general, I am not a big fan of bigger "oversized" over-the-ear headphones. However, I always want to test products, and provide an honest review so when you (the consumer) are looking to buy something you would find my reviews somewhat helpful.
The TunePhonik iZX5 Headphones is a wired, over-the-ear headphones with flat earcups. Before I start the review I would like to address how the company Aleratec (The maker of TunePhonik) is marketing this headphone as sport/workout headphones. Personally I find them to be more gaming style headphones. Maybe the review below will help you understand why.
The headphone has a great sound quality when it comes to vocals, and bass. However, the overall balance of low, med, and high range is not there. For that reason I think the headphones can make a great gaming headset. These headphones have great vocals which could translate to a better voice chat, They also have a decent bass for in game sound effect. The only thing needed is putting a microphone mute button and voila!! It's a gaming headset.
Sound Quality Rating:
As I mentioned earlier, I am not a big fan of big over sized over-the-ear headphones. I just can't see my self working out or walking around with a big headphones on my head. TunePhonik iZX5 is big, but it is not heavy, making it comfortable for longer wear. This is another indicator that these headphones should be marketed as gaming headsets.
If loud sound quality with a decent bass is what you are looking for, the TunePhonik is a decent choice considering the price point. Now remember, these are not Bluetooth headphones, they are wired headphones with flat ear-cups and comfortable enough to be worn during a flight or to watch a movie. I wouldn't recommend them for running or working out.
