In my time living in the wonderful New York City, I’ve been to many of the epic centers of human congregation: Union Square, Times Square, Grand Central, Chelsea Market, and the Highline. And I’ve constantly seen headphones on the heads of the locals, including a couple of them with highly-customized headphones, which with some research, I found out they were the Subjekt TNT Low Profile headphones: great 40mm cans at $59.99 a pair, in a variety of colors.
Perhaps this brevity review is more of a formal journal, but still, the transfer of sound and the immersion using the TNTs is impeccable for headphones of this price range. At times I looked around thinking what I was listening to was actually being played on the outside. Yes, it is that good. The supple leather cushioning on the 40mm sound drivers (what actually gives you the sound) is very comfortable, and overall, I’ve found them useful for quick jam sessions or the commute to school.
Need a pair of headphones that deliver great quality for $60 and that comes with a very functional microphone? Subjekt’s TNT headphones are winking in your direction.
