Timbre Guitarra Headphones Unboxed

The Timbre Guitarra finally for unboxing!

The Timbre Guitarra Headphones Unboxed!

Remember the Timbre Guitarra Headphones that we featured a few days ago? We now have a review unit with us courtesy of Timbre! This is a Filipino brand of headphones that were designed and conceptualized here in the Philippines but the cans (just like almost 90% of all other products) are manufactured in China. The design is a collaboration between the product owners and Team Manila and you can really feel the national pride vibe that they wanted to project with this product the moment you lay your eyes on it.

Check out the full unboxing as well as our initial impressions below. Don’t forget to read the captions!

Time to take it out of the box!

The packaging of the Guitarra is pretty decent. Transparent plastic box which elegantly shows off the outer faces of the ear cups. Definitely Filipino.
The back of the packaging has information about the cans, the company, as well as the vision for the brand. Interesting read.

What’s inside the box?

Opening is easy. Just pull the slits at the top, pop it open, and pull out the plastic container with the cans. There’s no manual since all the information you need can be found on the back and sides of the box.

What's inside? The headphones and the detachable cable. The designs of the outer ear cups are gorgeous. If it's just a question of design I'd proudly wear this over my Beats Studio any day.
This design looks like the center of a guitar. Beautiful. Good job Team Manila! I also like that they added "Support Lokal Music" on the band. ๐Ÿ™‚
The headband is made from hard plastic. It's sturdy but it feels a little too light for me. Worried about the durability. The cups have some sort of leatherette cushions. Oh, the cans are also foldable for easier storage. Sayang they should have included a pouch with this!
The cable is flat making it a bit tangle free. There's also in-line volume control along the wire.

Initial Impressions

I haven’t spent too much time with the cans yet since it’s been just 3 hours since I got a hold of them. I was able to get a few tracks in while on the road home earlier. I plugged the Timbre Guitarra on my Nationite NaNite N2 and found it the performance pretty well for bass-heavy songs. It has the same sound signature of the Audio-Technica PRO5MK2 (good bass, mids could use improvement) but take it down a few notches. That’s not a bad thing considering the Timbre Guitarra is set to sell for just Php2,500.

We’ll be spending more time with this over the next three days. Expect the full review this coming weekend!

FYI: The Timbre Guitarra is not yet officially available. However it should hit stores on December. Expect Apple Resellers and several lifestyle stores to sell them. Oh this also comes in black.
