Headphones stay in place and sound pretty good too

Specifications

The Wicked Helix some with several sizes of ear tips and can be had in three colors. The frequency response is 20Hz to 20,000Hz and it has a dB rating of 103db. The impedance is 16ohms and they have a 10mm driver and a 4-foot cord.

In Use

If you are an active sort that wears headphones while you exercise or move around a lot you know that it can be a big challenge to keep the earphones in your ears at times. I know I have had more than one set of headphones ripped out of my ears over the years when I was moving around. The Wicked Helix I am checking out today will stay in place for just about any activity you might have in mind.

The Wicked Helix comes in black and white, yellow and maroon, and blue and orange colors. Each side is a different color combination to make them stand out. Rather than just poking these headphones into your ears and hoping they stay put, these have an ear loop. The ear loop wraps around the outside of your ear and keeps the earphones in place.

The ear loop is flexible plastic and is comfortable for extended wear. I wasn't able to get these earphones to fall out of my ears with exertion, which is a good thing. I did notice that the design of the ear loops on my head tended to make the earphones not fit snugly in my ears. I had to stop a few times and push the tips back into my ears to block more external sound and improve the bass you hear.

Speaking of bass, the Wicked Helix are not designed to provide you with tons of bass like other Wicked products. The bass is ok, but anyone wanting deep bass will want to go elsewhere. These headphones are more focused on the mid and high-range sounds, but the overall sound is well rounded and not bad at all.

My review set of Wicked Helix are the black and white versions. This is the least flashy of the three colors and the others are much brighter, the maroon and yellow pair remind me of Iron Man. The 4-foot cord is sized well if you plan to carry your music device in an arm sleeve or a pocket. If you need distance to put your player into a pocket or tray while you work out the 4-foot length may be too short for tall folks.

Verdict

Pros

  • Decent sound
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Weak bass
  • Ear loops make tips come out of my ears
 

Conclusion

The Wicked Helix is a decent set of earphones for users needing stability that are able to live without deep bass.
