Radiopaq Flex Earphones

Here is how Radiopaq describe the Flex Earphones:

Unlike traditional sports earphones which are often rigid and harsh to wear, the Radiopaq Flex headphones offer a unique over-the-ear design made from a combination of rubber silicon and industrial plastic to offer the perfect balance between stability and comfort across all ear sizes and shapes. The super lightweight and semi-flexible ear hook is designed to help prevent the ear piece from being pulled from the ear and keeps the wires towards the back of the head to avoid them getting in the way during serious training sessions. The Flex earphones come bundled with a selection of three sizes of silicone ear-cushions to provide a customised earpiece that firmly fits even the knobbliest ear-canal. This choice of ear cushions make the Flex not only more comfortable to wear than other traditional sized and more bulky or rigid options, but ensures a sealed fit inside the ear delivering excellent sound isolation as it effectively cuts out more of the ambient background noise – reducing the maximum volume needed to clearly hear audio, and so allows safer audio levels for ears.

The Flex incorporates a convenient touch-button remote control on the cable, featuring volume controls, play, pause and track selections for easier control on ground, ramps or in air. Automatic call cut-in makes answering phone calls with your iPhone effortlessly hands-free using the built-in mic on the remote control –and will restore back to the music once the call has been terminated – so no more fumbling for your phone in the middle of high powered action. Radiopaq’s remarkable Flex headsets produce a sound quality to rival far more expensive models, performing to the highest acoustic standards producing clear high quality, Hi-Fi audio even whilst the user is in motion. Flex deliver performance across all frequencies from high to low; for bass without rumble and crystal clear vocals.

Using the Earphones

The first thing you need to do is ensure that the correct size earbuds are being used. So just try the earphones on and test the different earbuds.

Then when you are happy just connect them up to whatever device you want to use with them and away you go!

Final Thoughts

I found the earphones to be very light, so much so you almost don’t feel them at all. I found them very comfortable to wear, especially for a prolonged period of time, like a train journey.

I really liked that they included different size earbuds – this is something that is often overlooked with they style of earphones.

The sound quality was really good as well, and the inclusion of both the Apple remote and mic was a very clever idea.

All in all, if you want a good set of this style of earphones, you should take a close look at these. And the price is very reasonable as well!

Review: DREDGE

DREDGE is a peaceful and beautiful fishing simulator that's occasionally broken up by eldritch abominations from the deep. Thoroughly enjoyable!
