iFrogz EarPollution Fallout and Metal Drumz Hardware Review
The evolution of the Apple iPhone has grown into a full portable media machine. Providing call features, texting, mail, music, movies, applications including games, and more, the iPhone is beginning to even trump the iPod itself as a commodity in our culture.
Being able to listen to music, movies, or applications is also very important to us and the style of these commodities is turning into a form of self expression. A company by the name of iFrogz are making it possible to show these forms of expressions by offering a line of customizable headphones called EarPollution.
The EarPollution line consists of 12 different customizable headphones which include NervePipes, Fallout, Flow, DJ Style, Plugz, Metal Drumz, D33, D33 Shorties, Toxix, ThrowBax, TheBomb, and Tadpole.
The two headphones we are reviewing today are the EarPollution Fallout (headphones) and Metal Drumz (ear buds).
iFrogz “Fallout” headphones are fully customizable with the availability to change the headband color, sidepieces, speakers, ear cushions, and artwork. The exact options you can choose are listed below:
Headband: Black, Gray
Sidepieces: Black, Blue, Chrome, Gold, Lime Green, Purple, Light Blue, Orange, Pink, Red, Yellow.
Speakers: Black, Chrome, Gold
Ear Cushions: Black, Gray, White, Blue Mesh, Dark Blue Mesh, Green Mesh, Pink Mesh, Yellow Mesh, Brown, Golden, Leopard, Zebra, Pink.
Artwork: Multicolors and Solids (too many to list).
Being able to customize your headphones is a cool idea and the options offered by iFrogz won’t break the bank.
The build quality and comfort of the Fallout headphones are decent and feature all plastic pieces. The chrome is fake but still looks good and allows the headphones to remain affordable at $34.99. The padding on the ear cushions is soft and the headphones conform to your head very well. The Fallout headphones unfortunately do not fold up making portability a potential problem if you’re low on carrying space. There is also a 1.2 meter cable with a 3.5 mm plug which is a perfect length for any music, movie or gaming pleasure.
The Fallout’s sound quality is good and matches what you would find in competitors products. The headphones come with a 40mm driver unit, 32 ohm impedance, 120dB+/-3dB at 1kHz sensitivity range, and a 30 Hz to 20 KHz frequency response. This combination together delivers a fuller sound with some deeper bass in comparison to Apple’s standard ear buds.
iFrogz sells their EarPollution Fallout headphones for $34.99.
Metal Drumz Ear Buds
iFrogz “Metal Drumz” ear buds offer three different color combinations which include Black and Silver, Silver and Orange, Silver and Teal. Metal Drumz are specifically made to isolate noise and provide a more crisp sound.
The build quality of the Metal Drumz are great and feel solid. iFrogz includes three earfit pieces of different sizes to make sure you get the right amount of comfort.
The Metal Drumz’ sound quality is great and is much better than Apple’s standard ear buds. Specifications for Metal Drumz are a 10mm driver unit, 16 ohm impedance, 95dB+/-3dB at 1kHz sensitivity range, and a 20 Hz to 20 KHz frequency response. The cord length is 1.1 meters long and the ear buds have a 3.5 mm plug for iPods, iPhones, Zunes and other portable entertainment devices.
iFrogz sells their Metal Drumz ear buds for $24.99.
I recommend iFrogz’ EarPollution Fallout and Metal Drumz headphones and ear buds to anyone looking to fully customize their headset, obtain good sound quality, and not break the bank in comparison to other head sets. You can check out the entire EarPollution line at www.iFrogz.com.
