Benchmarks

Specifications
The Kicker EB71 earphones are an in-ear style earphone that are made from plastic and have three different size plastic ear tips for comfortable fit. The earphones use a 3.5mm plug and the cord is 47-inches long. The drivers use a neodymium magnet and have an impedance of 32 ohm and a frequency response of 29Hz to 19.5kHz.

In Use
One of the best things about the Kicker EB71 earphones is that they are very lightweight and comfortable to wear. The lightweight makes the ear buds comfortable for long-term use and you hardly notice they are in your ears. The cable is long enough that you can move around without any binding or catching of the cable.

The earphones can be had in gray/black, blue/white, all black, white/black, and pink/white colors. The MSRP is only $23.95 making the headphones one of the cheapest pairs I have reviewed. As a cheap entry-level set of earphones, they perform well.

The sound produced is well balanced and clear with good mids and highs. The level of bass produced is not as great as many of the other earphones that I have tested. That said the earphones with superior bass tend to cost quite a bit more money.

If heavy bass is what you are after you can find better earphones, but they will cost more. The earphones have a connector that is small enough to fit into the port of an iPhone or any other mobile phone or PMP that uses a 3.5mm jack.

Verdict

    Verdict
