I was surprised when I went to the home website for Empire Brands and could not find links to their line of headphones. I was looking for price and warranty information, but was able to find it elsewhere.
Nevertheless, the company really does produce these headphones, which are called Reverb and branded Wicked Audio. They are quite a sight to see. The bright blue and black design is meant to represent a street scene. The wide black head piece is stamped with a white stylized “Wicked” logo. The ear pieces themselves are quite large, which should be good news to anyone who has trouble finding headphones that will cover their ears.
Reverb Wicked Audio Headphones
The MSRP is $30. Using the SnapTell app on my iPhone, I found it for less than that on Amazon.com and a few other Internet sites.
The cord length is 4 feet and there is an additional 6 feet included in the form of an extension cord. The plugs are gold plated and there is a lifetime warranty.
Using the Product
I tested the headphones using my MacBook Pro, my iPhone 4, and my iPod nano 5. For the price point, these headphones have really good sound, particularly for stereo. I will also note here, that despite the fact that these headphones are obviously designed for the hip, young generation, they survived my Willie Nelson music just fine.
Do I Recommend It?
I do. Probably not for your Great Aunt Charlotte. They are probably too heavy for her to wear. But for teens and up, these are ideal. Good sound, cool design, and reasonable price. I really did enjoy the stereo.
