These headphones were sent out for review by MobileFun.co.uk.

Shortly after the last time I reviewed $30 headphones I was forced to quit my job. Although, I don’t see a way for that happening again, as I basically work for myself, although it’s technically a democratic organization of 3 members. Now on to the review. When I first heard about the Sonix line of headphones, I thought they looked a lot like V-MODA’s in-ear headphones. They used a nylon cable, something V-MODA loves to do, they have a “pod-like” design with “L” piece coming out of the earbud – just the cable, they use an all metal design like V-MODA uses, and they use a 45 degree 3.5mm input jack. All of those are characteristics of earbuds I love, and none are V-MODA’s invention, but none the less scream “V-MODA competitor!” The only things included are standard small, medium, and large ear tips, and the ear buds themselves. I’d like to see some sort of pouch included for such nice ear buds, but you have to remember to low price point. Even though the ear buds are somewhat heavy due to the all anodized aluminum design and nylon cable, they still stay in your ears very well. The build quality is excellent due to the high-end materials they used, and they look very modish – although they sometimes give a retro look – in a good way. Moving down to the cable, you’ll notice a nice 45 degree angle jack and some red metal accents. This adds up to a long-lasting, flexible input. Overall build quality is excellent, and they are certainly snazzy.

Now you may be thinking, “so are they just blitz, or do they also pack a punch?” After burning in the ear buds for 24 hours, I got to use them. The experience was like the first time I used good ear buds. Everything got out-of-the-way and I just heard beautiful tunes. You will notice a balanced bass, (so these might not be great for bass junkies) and good highs, mids, and lows. In terms of cable noise, if you’re not listening to music, it is noticeable, especially from the rubber part of the cable, (the braided nylon part seems to block cable noise) but once you turn on music, even at a very low-level like I listen to, you wont notice it. I can certainly say these are the best $30 price range ear buds I have ever used. From my experience testing headphones, these sound and feel more like $100 range headphones, provide nearly as good sound as the V-MODA Vibe Duos, which originally sold for $120, although are now down to $80. Not only that, but some of the best build quality in the in-ear headphone industry, and you’ve got one of the best deals you can find. That’s why I give the Lenntek Sonix ear buds the editor’s choice award for low-cost in-ear headphones.

Pros:
-Low price point
-Best of class build quality
-Nylon cable
-Excellent sound quality
-45 degree headphone input that barley works with the iPhone 2G

Cons:
-Very few accessories are included
-The nylon cable only goes up to the yoke

Video review:

Well, I’m back, again. Basically I’ve left TechUnwrapped.com, and I want to create something new. I wanted to create something that owuld create a dent in the tech universe. iTechGadget was obviously not that. Me, Vincent Paddon, and Brandon Keller are teaming up to create a new HTML5 graphic presentation system for our reviews. This will truly be like no other reviewing site. Although while the site is being developed, we will be writing on this site. Every article on this site from now on will also be put in the private alpha of the new site, and you’ll be able to find any iTechGadget.net Summer 2011 article. We expect to launch the final site by mid-late Summer, but for now, iTechGadget will hopefully become your source of tech info. To stay informed please subscribe to this blog from the footer of this page. We purchased the domain iTechGadget.net, so you can now access us from there.
