Coloud Pop Earphones Review
In the last few months we’ve reviewed dozens of earphones and headphones. Unfortunately most of the cans we’ve tested are a bit pricey with the good ones at least at Php2,000. That’s why we’re very happy to introduce you guys to the Coloud Pop Earphones! Selling for just Php950, the Coloud Pop is arguably one of the best sub-Php1,000 earphones you can get here in the Philippines! It may not be the absolute best in sound quality but it definitely makes up for that in style, form, and features.
It looks incredibly stylish
Everything about the Coloud Pop, from the packaging to the materials used in the product was definitely well thought out! The earphones comes in a two-piece triangular box. At the top is a transparent plastic layer which showcases the design of the product focusing on how good it looks. At the back is a solid black plastic tray. Inside the box you’ll find the earphones, some manuals, and extra ear pieces (different sizes, be sure to find the perfect match for your ear).
Now let’s turn our focus to the earphones. They simply look amazing! The designers behind this can definitely be called “artists”. The three-tone color combination is beautifully applied in the earphones. The main pastel colors are used to highlight the main components: the earphones, the in-line remote and microphone, and the Zound Lasso. To provide contrast there’s either a plain dark or bright color applied to the flat cable. The contrast gives the earphones so much more personality than the usual all-black or all-white earphones.
The Coloud Pop comes in a variety of color combinations. Just be sure to check the different models to find the one that suits you best.
Additional features: Microphone and the Zound Lasso
The Coloud Pop was made for casual music lovers. These are the people who usually listen to their music on their smartphones. To make the Coloud Pop more useful they added an in-line remote control and microphone. This will let you take calls without removing the earphones and you can also control what track you want to listen to using the remote. Nifty!
An additional feature that most earphones don’t have is the “Zound Lasso”. This is the L-shaped plug at the end of the flat cable. To make it more useful they made it with some sort of “bendy” and elastic material. You can actually fold up the cable and then used the Zound Lasso to wrap and secure the earphones. Check out the photos below so you guys know what I mean.
Hayup. Nakakaaliw. (For our non-Filipino readers this means “very entertaining”)
Sound quality is very good! Sell your EarPods and buy this!
Now we get to the most important part of the review — sound quality. For Php950 you’d think the Coloud Pop wouldn’t be better than the already crappy Apple EarPods. However that’s not the case at all. When it comes to the acoustics, the Coloud Pop can easily pass as earphones twice its price tag. The 9mm dynamic drivers delivers clear mids and fairly good highs. The bass is definitely on the “punchy” side but not as bad as the over-bassy SQ of Beats earphones and headphones.
Verdict: We recommend it. It’s good.
The Coloud Pop is without a doubt of the best earphones that you can get here in the Philippines for under Php1,000. The combination of the sound quality, stylish design, and additional features makes it a very good buy. We highly recommend it. 🙂
PS: If you’re using the EarPods from the iPhone 5, iPod Touch, or iPod Nano, sell them to someone else for Php1,000 and just get this one instead.
The Coloud Pop Earphones is available in the various branches of Beyond the Box, Digital Hub, and Digital Walker.
