I just got these fantastic new headphones by SATECHI , and they inspired the look for the day, since I really wanted to wear them. Big headphones and headphones in general are part of your outfit, don’t make them less important than they are. So I knew I was going to have something bright and a look that’s “urban”. 

White pants H&M – easy to make them work with this Rose Gold. Together with the black pefecto denim&leather jacket from ZARA they make for a very urban feel. I wanted to juxtapose a few elements though. Voila, an urban inspired look, that wouldn’t be half as good without the headphones.

Satechi is using anodized aluminum that mimics Apple’s own product line (except Rose Gold). The earphones also fold flat for slipping into a bag, and have a comfortable padding for both your ears and top of the head. On one side, there are three buttons, each with multiple functionality. The Bluetooth button is also the power button, and pulls triple-duty as a pause button. The volume rockers work when held down; if you single-tap either, it skips the track forward or backward one spot on your playlist. 

Satechi’s headphones also have a mic so you can take calls, and come with a 3.5mm audio cable (with a mute button) if you’d prefer a wired experience. There is an optional stand for your desk that doubles as a USB hub. It’s also aluminum, and available in the same colors as the headphones.

For a basic user, Satechi’s headphones are great. They don’t deliver a ton of bass, and the treble is accurate but not crisp. The sound is accurate, but I can’t endorseSatechi’s ‘premium sound’ claim (that’s something Bose can say with ease). But they do respond well to software tweaks. In the Settings app on your iPhone — buried under ‘Music’ — there’s an EQ. Toying with settings there made the headphones sound a lot better (compared to other headphpones and earbuds I’vealso exposed to Apple’s EQ) depending on what type of music I was listening to. Still, I wasn’t wowed. I’m no audiophile in any way, but it’s clear these aren’t the best headphones you can get. They’re really good.

Satechi’s headphones have Bluetooth 4.0, and the battery life is really good (I got through days of light use without being notified I should charge them; Satechi says you’ll get around 16 hours use before needing to charge). They fold flat, have a nice stand for the desk, and can be wired if you need it.
