Review: Wicked Audio Heist
The Wicked Audio Heist is an interesting headphone because it has a unique feature that allows you to share your music with your friends and all they have to do is plug in their headphones into the Heist’s sharing port and enjoy. They also come with 3 different sizes of cushions to fit your specific ear. The sound that comes out of the Heist is a very bass heavy sound that sounds like it is being yanked out of your device. There is little to no middle and they don’t really feel like they are supposed to go in you ear, like maybe the buds were designed after the shape of a nose or something.
Design and Aesthetics ★★★
Wicked Audio didn’t put much time into designing these headphones. They feel very cheap and the cord is designed to be pulled apart and there is no way of putting it back together. On top of all of this, they aren’t even that good looking.
The Heist is very plastic-y feeling and is not very comfortable in you ear. I have a pair of standard Apple headphones and they feel much more sturdy than these Wicked Audio earbuds. The Heist also leaks a lot which means you can be sitting across the room and hear what song person is listening to even if they’re not turned up very loud.
These headphones are cheap, and you get what you pay for. If you just want something to get the sound out of your phone or MP3 player and you don’t want to spend much money, these are the headphones for you. But if you care about sound quality, I would advise you to consider something else.
