Status Audio HD One

If you’re a fan of those mega-popular headphones that are endorsed by mega-stars, understand that you are adding mega-bucks to their mega-bank accounts. They aren’t lending their names to promote a headphone for free and the headphone company certainly isn’t paying for it; you are. It’s hidden in the cost. Okay then, what if you desire a pair of those headphones and the status they offer, but can’t afford them? Well, now you can have the status without the brand name with the new Status Audio HD One Headphones. The style is visually similar to the more famous headphones, but contain no logos or branding. Plus, they maintain the performance and features of headphones costing double, triple, and even quadruple their price, claims Status Audio. They’re coated in a rubberized finish as opposed to shiny plastic, have 40mm drivers and a flat, detachable, tangle-free cable with in-line mic with 3-button remote. The on-ear HD One is foldable and comes in three colors: Red (Marathon), Black (Jet Black) and Black with red trim (Classic). The Status Audio HD One headphones sell for an affordable $40 and will be available May 1, 2014.

    @Bill Henderson are you thinking of trying these? Do you have any initial thoughts about them?

    What model inline Macro they supply? ;o)
    Seriously though I hope the quality is better than the others because they are just too bass heavy.

    Good catch (I hate spell check).
    It should be fixed soon.

    I’ve been interested in a pair of the branded headphones, but they are just so expensive that I feel it’s not worth it. These would be a great alternative, especially if they have the booming bass that the branded ones are known for!

    Are these noise cancelling? Can we get some technical specs? Couldn’t see them on their website.

    Antoine,
    They are NOT noise-cancelling. That would add considerably to the cost.
