Sound Staging and Imaging refers to the ability of a pair of headphones to create the placement of instruments and vocalists in a recording. A small sound stage is very difficult to determine where the instruments are in relation to the vocalists, everything sounds like it's coming from the same place. An extra large sound stage separates the instruments and vocalists so that you can clearly tell where each is on the sound stage.

Bass Detail
How accurately a headphone can reproduce bass notes; a culmination of attack, speed, decay and clarity. Attack is how precisely it can begin a bass note without delay. Speed is the ability to continue to attack an array of bass notes without lagging. Decay is the length of time after a bass note ends that the sound is still heard. Clarity is how easily all bass frequencies are heard. It gives perception of loose, tight, or muddy bass.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

SYNC BY 50

February 9, 2012

These headphones are unbelievable. The best pair I have ever had. The sound is incredible. I was on a plane and went to the bathroom and there was no difference in the quality even though I was 30 feet from the IPAD SOURCE.

10 times better!

October 10, 2013

I tried almost every headphones before I ordered this one. I'm fully satisfied with it. This headphone has the best sound I've ever heard.
The only little problem with it is the wireless adapter stopped working properly, and i can not use it for my iphone, because it has contact failure, but if i dont move it, it works well, so i still can use it with my TV.

They deserve the price

May 6, 2013

I ordered SyncBy50 headphones around 6 months ago, I was afraid that it wasn't worth the 280$ (price of the headphones) + 50$ (for delivery & taxes), but I was extremely satisfied. The bass is amazing, the wireless technology is wonderful, the durability is something anyone will appreciate. The design, well that depends on the taste of the person & I liked it. Now people complain that it is not as what promised by the SMSAudio company that it is able of transmitting for about 50 feet range but all the companies LIE about the specifications (The range can go up to 30 feet) !! overall it is the BEST Wirelss headphones

KLEER wireless FTW

January 17, 2012

I had a chance to listen to these at the CES show and i was impressed with the sound.

First off, these headphones use KLEER technology for their wireless. I'm a big fan of this and have been since Sennheiser used it in their RS 180. IMO it is the best for wireless because it doesn't really have any interference or noise or static. Plus, it has really good range. I put the headphones on and can walk around the house, go to the bathroom, make some food in the kitchen... all while listening to the TV and without taking the headphone off.

Back to the Syncs. I like the design of the cans and the simple to use controls on the sides. i found them very easy to use. Plus, the buttons stick out enough (and are big enough) that you know what button you are pushing without having to take the headphones off.
