What Hi-Fi? Verdict

Well priced on-ear headphones. Noise-cancelling introduces a little hiss but the music is much more direct and attacking

Pros

  • + Good price
  • + decent noise cancelling

Cons

  • - Some hiss
  • - music is muffled and distant with noise cancelling off
  • - cheap controls

These are really cheap for noise-cancellers, and although they’re fairly solid, the volume and noise-cancelling controls feel cheap.

The noise-cancelling is fine, but it does introduce some hiss. That said, it also improves the Lencos’ sound, adding attack and drive.

All this for under thirty quid? That’s a pretty good deal…
