Although the Soul SL300MS High Definition Noise Canceling Headphones have been released for a while now I still wanted to do a review on these cool futuristic headphones. These high end headphones by Soul are mainly designed for studio use and provide pristine noise cancelling performance, they are also ideal for the regular headphone user looking for advanced noise cancelling effects. These over-ear headphones are mainly a durable plastic construction and come in a few color variations including the oh so famous “rasta” style. These headphones being a 2012 release model they can now be obtained at a very steep discount despite there excellent quality.
These headphones are slightly larger compared to other noise cancelling headphones like the Bose QuietComfort’s, thus allowing an even more comfortable over-ear fit (the ear-cups go perfectly over my ears and fit great). You do need to install two AA batteries into the well hidden ear compartment in order to set the audio output to either “low” or “high”, they come defaulted on “high” so make sure to adjust before use and you may want to consult the instruction manual for this. Once installed the headphones are now fully functional, flick the power switch on the left ear-piece and a blue light will come on indicating power status.
SL300MS Audio Quality
After I had set up the headphones I used them for a while, making sure to only judge the audio once “burned in”(which may or may not actually do anything), the sound quality is very nice and is pretty much what one would expect in a headphone of this price range. The highs were crisp and sharp and the lows very nice and deep, although sometimes the low’s were slightly muffled sounding perhaps due to the advanced noise cancelling effects. The noise cancelling, which these headphones are designed for is actually very nice, the Soul SL300MS High Definition Noise Canceling Headphones do a great job at blocking out any external noise, you can almost compare it to fully cupping your ears very tightly with your hands. The Soul SL300Ms’s are definitely a great choice as a noise canceling headphone and is similar to the Bose QuiteComfort’s, weather you need them for studio use or just casual music enjoyment, you will not be disappointed!
