Control v2 On Ear Headphones
Stylish, high performance, quality build, these are some of the characteristics of the Eskuche Control v2 KRM Headphones. I was surprised at the overall performance of these headphones, i was expecting a cheap feeling product, which is what you will usually find in this price range. After unboxing it was cool to see a very unique, fresh style like this. The Eskuche Control v2 KRM Headphones have a very retro look to them, they look like a vintage pair of headphones from the 70’s, but perform like a modern $200-$300 pair of headphones.

Small Company – Big Style
These headphones are built nice and sturdy, although not a complete metal build, the parts are strong and durable. The headband in which the ear-cups can extend on, are an all metal construction with a super cool mirror polishing. The ear-cups themselves are plastic with a chrome finishing in the centre, giving off a very complete retro look. The ear-cups are well padded and also pivot for a custom fit. The headband is lacking a little bit of padding, but the overall comfort of the Control v2 is still outstanding.
The headband is strong and springy providing a very tight fit, which also helps with its good noise cancelling properties. The cable is your standard 3.5 feet in length, it also has volume/track control and a mic for mobile use. The cable is also anti-tangle, making your life a lot easier.
v2 Sound Performance
The bass is massive on these headphones, wow! I was astonished when i first used them, now I just cant put them down. These are probably one of your best choices of headphones if your into bass heavy music, the ear-cups feel like they are thumping off your head as they rumble. The headphones are in the mid $100 range, but rival headphones in sound performance that are well above $300. The mids are also prefect on these headphones, giving off a very rich full tone. The highs are little bit diminished, but still present. The only thing I would have liked to have seen different would be a slightly stronger treble.
If your looking for a pair of closed/on-ear headphones at a bargain price, seriously, look no further. That is if you can stand the super retro look. Click on the product link below for best price.
