Review of Coloud Colors Headphones

galaxy s3 covers

Ever hear of Coloud? I didn’t until one of their sets of headphones appeared on my doorstep for review. Their new line is called Colors and they’re aptly named as you can get them in many different colors. Today I have the Blue Coloud Colors for review, they’re inexpensive and they have an in-line microphone with remote control.


The box for the headphones is rather nice and it’s open on the side to show the product.

The speakers themselves are padded nicely.

The earpieces are made of plastic and there’s metal extensions going through them to adjust the size and they swivel slightly for fit.

In-Line you can also find a play/pause button and a microphone.

I used the Coloud headphones with my PC, Samsung Captivate and Zune HD for testing.

Using it with the PC I found it to sound rather odd, not the best sounding really. I think the reason is because I was playing it though the speaker remote and not directly though the PC itself.

With the Zune HD the sound was much better but there’s a distinct lack of bass, if you’re into heavy bass then these certainly are not for you. The treble was decent though, but still a bit light for my tastes.

Using them with the Captivate I was hoping the remote control might work and it did, sort of. It worked fine with the movie player but not the music player. Sound was the same as with the Zune HD, not bad but not that great either. I did notice that they can get very loud, but at very high volumes they do get slightly distorted.

The one major problem I have with the Coloud Colors headphones is comfort, they’re just not that comfortable at all. The pads are nice and soft yes, but the spring is very strong making them push into my ears and even after just a few minutes my head hurt. I used them for even longer and wound up with a slight headache actually. I don’t think I’ve got a big head as I’ve not got problems with other headphones, only these. They do fit my kids fine though.

Conclusion:
The Coloud Colors headphones cost only $40 so I wasn’t expecting high end quality sound, and I didn’t get it, but it wasn’t bad overall.

The in-line remote and microphone works with some phones but not all, with my Captivate it didn’t work quite right. Still though it is nice to have the remote and microphone if you’re got something that works with it.

Comfort is an issue, I could have overlooked the sound quality but they’re just not very comfortable at all honestly, just way too tight on my head. These headphones might be great for kids though.

    I have been wearing a pair of these for over 18 months now, and I agree 100% with the comfort issue. I can only wear these for about 4 hours until the pain gets too uncomfortable and I have to take them off. I had a huge problem with the metal wiring on the top pressing into my scalp, but that was only for the first few months. Now it isn’t noticeable anymore. But the pain from the headphones themselves is just horrific. It feels like my ears are being pressed against jarlids, and they are dark red when I remove the headphones after extended use.
