IMG Reviews MacAlly Noise Reduction Headphones
12:36 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

In an effort to diversify IMG's hardware coverage, Greg Gant has explored MacAlly's first audio product, the Noise Reduction Headphones. Despite the not-so-original product name, MacAlly has a solid product on their hands. Here is an excerpt from the review.

I didnít expect noise reduction to alter the soundscape but it made an incredible difference. MacAlly should rename the noise-canceling feature to suckiness on/off (suckiness off being noise reduction on). Itís not fair to review the headphones without the noise reduction enabled. The 'phones sound thin and feeble without noise reduction enabled. As soon as the noise reduction is turned on, they jump to life; the bass becomes defined and powerful, the midrange is more pronounced, and the stereo separation is enhanced. Strangely enough, the 16 dB of noise reduction is hard to notice. Simply cupping your hands and tightly placing them over your ears will provide around 10 dB of noise reduction. Itís hard to say if the noise reduction occurred because I was wearing the headphones or if they actually were reducing noise.
Read the rest of the review to find out more about MacAlly's Noise Reduction Headphones.
