Zoro headphones from Noontec

Apr 1, 2013

Omega Africa, together with Noontec, are bringing the Zoro headphones to the local market. The Noontec Zoro is an on-ear, semi-isolated headphone available in three glossy finishes: black; white; and red.

The headphones come with a 24 carat gold-plated connector to boost audio quality.

Zoro headphones have a 3,5mm jack fitted to both ends of a 120cm-long flat cable; these connectors are compatible with most smartphones, so users can listen to music on the go.

The hinged steel headband allows the headphones to fold up and fit inside their soft carry case, and the user-replaceable headphone cable is tangle-free and plugs into the left ear cup.

One disadvantage of the Zoro headphones is that they lack an in-line remote and a microphone.

While the headband and ear cups are nicely padded, and comfort levels are good, the cushions put a bit more pressure against the tops of the ears than the bottoms. This is mostly due to the limited pivot angle of the headphones.

Despite this, the headphones provide adequate isolation from external noise, which enables tones to be reproduced accurately.
