Sound Signature

Sound Staging & Imaging
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.
Refers to how clear the headphones audio reproduction is.
Refers to the quality of a music note that distinguishes different types of sound production (voices, musical instruments, etc.).
Refers to the bass performance of the headphones. Rated from Light bass to extreme bass.
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.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

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.

Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

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.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.

General Features

The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
16 ohms
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".

Good value

September 2, 2010

Good sound for an inexpensive product. Reinforced cord/plug junction is still a weak point.

Way better than the other pair I bought

August 11, 2014

I purchased these and a pair of a competing brand of sound isolating earphones with microphone.
My review is about the quality of calls made with the woodees.
First I compared the two by calling my home phone on my cell phone and left myself a message. Then I called a friend and asked that he compare the two. BOTH times the Woodees far surpassed the competing brand in clarity,volume and tone!
Now that that's out of the way I have to say the Woodees are also more comfortable to wear and the bopping sound from the cord being bumped is less than the Nu Force. The only down side that I can see is that the cords are very thin and I wonder how well they'll hold up. Additionally it's nearly impossible to see which ear bud is the left or right one. Light reflects off the finish and on matter how you place the buds it's very very hard to see. I did, however, figure out that the mic is placed on the same side as the Right ear bud. So that takes care of that.

Nice sound, nice price

June 23, 2012

I purchased these so I could hear my tunes on my android phone at wok without hearing everyone else. To my surprise, they block out noise very well and sound balanced. Voices sound natural and the bottom end is nice once you fit them on your ear just right. The key is taking the time to get the fit right so you can hear the details. The styling is unique, these won't be confused with iPod earbuds. And Sonic always delivers right on time. I like them a lot.

So far so great

March 18, 2011

S.N. Only had them for 5 hours... First impressions are that the headphones sound great. I listen to rap and r&b and for u bass heads these aren't gonna impress u. Very nice bass however. Go get some more expensive earbuds for that (beats). Very good value. Everything sounds crisp and no muffle on the loudest volume. I hope these last cause it'll feel like a steal at this price...

Excellent sound

February 22, 2011

These IEMs have excellent, clean sound with deep bass, strong midrange, and bright upper range. The ability for them to block out surrounding noise is very good as well. I guess the wood actually helps, since no other earbuds I've tried sound this good.

However, the cord attachment points are a bit flimsy on these and all other Woodees I have seen. The little protective accordion sleeve is very short and too flexible to actually support the cord. I have seen similar problems on other brands of headphones and electronic devices, however, so I'm not too worried, especially at this price.

Speaking of price, the earbuds are far cheaper than the sound they produce. This makes these earbuds far superior to other comparably-priced items, in terms of sound quality. And if I break them, I can easily get a new pair without hurting myself too much.

Awesome headphones!

October 13, 2009

I have not gone through many headphones so I don't have a lot to back up what I have to say but these things are amazing! They have an impressive amount of bass for ear buds. I did have a pair of bose headphones awhile back and I'm more impressed with these. I won these but they are certainly well worth the price that sonic is offering them for!

My Woodees Rock! Wow. Amazing product.

March 31, 2009

These headphones truly deliver amazing sound. I was a bit skeptical about the "wood" design, but they sound really nice and fit great.

I was fortunate enough to get a pre-production pair since I work for Sonic Electronix, and these things are putting dust on my Scosche, Sony and Sennheiser earbuds.

The bass is deep, and pure sounding and not so dirty sounding like some others that just deliver "loud" instead of clean, smooth sounds. The other thing worth mentioning is the tips come in a variety of sizes that basically let these babies act as noise canceling as they literally plug into your ears comfortably and cut out exterior noise w/ ease.

Another cool feature is that when I go workout at the gym I can easily skip the song on my iPod Nano by simply tapping the mic/controller 2 times so I can always hear the right song when I am lifting. I have yet to try the microphone with the iPhone, but when I do I will try to write another review.

I know I received my set for free as a demo, but I think at this price they give other headphones that are much more expensive a punch in the pants... there is only one kind of Woodee worth putting in your ear...and these are it for sure. I have paid $120 for a set of earbud headphones from Sennheiser and these beat them hands down.

I think the only complaint I have is that while at my desk I wish I could get a longer-cord version of them, as I hate using a non-Woodee extension cord, but I am sure that will come eventually and I am just ecstatic overall so I do not mind the standard 4 ft. length.
