Specifications

The Wicked Tour headphones have a foldable design and are available in several colors and designs. They are cheap and sell for $19.99. The Tour headphones have 40mm drivers and 32-ohms impedance. The frequency response is 20-20,000Hz and the cord is four feet long.

In Use

Certainly the first things you notice about the Wicked Tour is the design. The set I received for review is a very cool looking blue color that looks almost just like the Grabber Blue that is on my 2010 Ford Mustang. The center of the ear cups is covered in an antiqued looking red patter. The head pad is black as are the ear cushions.

The headphones are designed to fold flat for easy transport. The folding action is easy to do and unfolding the headphones for use is simple and can be completed in seconds. I plugged the Wicked Tour headphones into my iPhone and fired up my "How Low" test track from Ludacris to see how well the Tour headphones sounded.

I will be honest with a price tag of $19.99 I wasn’t expecting much in the way of sound from the headphones. I was very surprised to hear how well rounded the sound produced by the Wicked Tour headphones is. The mids and highs are crisp and sharp and the bass is impressively deep without overwhelming the vocals. This is one of the best sounding headphones I have tested at any price and they are budget offerings.

For some reason Wicked Audio still hasn’t put the Wicked Tour headphones on its site despite the headphones launching back in July. Other than the blue set I received, you can also get the headphones in black with gold and one other color that I can’t find a picture of.

The only thing I can see that might be an issue with the Wicked Tour is that the padding on the ear cups is rather hard. After wearing the Tour headphones for a while the pressure on the ears from the headphones gets a little uncomfortable. Thankfully, the headphones are very light. I would like to see these headphones get a mic for making calls on the iPhone or other music phones as n upgrade. That is assuming the price didn’t go up too much.

The Wicked Tour headphones are very impressive with good looks, great sound and a budget price it's very hard to go wrong. Take a bit of a break after wearing them for a while and you will love the Wicked Tour headphones.

Verdict

Pros

  • Great bass
  • Good looks
  • Folding design

Cons

  • Ear pads are uncomfortable after a while
 

Conclusion

The Wicked Tour headphones are one of the best sounding headphones I have tried at any price. Couple that first rate sound with the price of under $20 and I wholeheartedly recommend the Wicked Tour headphones.
