Hands on: WeSC Alp Horn review

There is nothing to commend these awful headphones Tested at £80

What is a hands on review?

Oh. Dear. The Alp Horns might appeal to the youth of today, but those wanting any kind of sound quality should look elsewhere.

Music sounds dull, unnatural, unbalanced and unrefined. Knock a zero off the price and they’d still struggle to rise above a solitary star. Awful is an understatement.

What is a hands on review?

'Hands on reviews' are a journalist's first impressions of a piece of kit based on spending some time with it. It may be just a few moments, or a few hours. The important thing is we have been able to play with it ourselves and can give you some sense of what it's like to use, even if it's only an embryonic view.
