PROS

  • The price of the Plugged Crown is excellent given its quality.
  • It offers superior noise isolation.
  • It is attractively designed.

CONS

  • There is some bass distortion at high volumes.
  • It's a little hefty.
  • The cable tends to kink up.
While striving to offer solid sound quality at an affordable price, Plugged Crown headphones have been compared favorably to more expensive offerings. Elegantly designed, they come in two color combinations: black/gold and white/rose. The device features a 40 mm driver system, foam ear cushions and sound isolation thanks to its over-the-ear design. The surface is a scratch-resistant matte finish. The headphones come in a soft case with two cables: one for Android and one for iOS devices. These cables connect to either ear cup and have in-line controls and a mic that allow you to interrupt your music to take calls. The headphones weigh about 9 ounces.

For $100, the Plugged Crown gets a tip of our hat for its excellent design, and a pat on the back for its audio performance.

The Plugged Crown headphones excelled at isolating noise. The sound seemed quite clear at first, but after a while I noticed that it was actually slightly echo-y, but not in a distracting way. It just makes it feel more like you’re actually there for the performance ...
