SMS Audio SYNC by 50

SMS Audio's Sync by 50 headphones are an intriguing wired / wireless hybrid, but they aren't worth the price as-is. Here's hoping for gen two.

Sure, they're stylish with a decent fit and good sound, but the experience is just messy.CNET50SMS Audio Sync by 50 (black)The Sync by 50 wireless headphones made the right move using Kleer technology for lossless sound, but SMS Audio needs to fix severe design flaws and lower the price before they're ready for battle.Sound and Vision70Review: Sync by 50 SMS-WS Wireless HeadphonesSync by 50 is a long ways from the most natural-sounding headphone we’ve heard, but it is a lot of fun to listen to. It delivers a vivid and exciting sonic presentation that a lot of people, especially hip-hop fans, will totally dig.SlashGear70Sync by 50 SMS-WS Wireless Headphones ReviewWhat we’ve got here is not necessarily going to be your number one choice for a pair of headphones if you’re looking to go low-key for fashionability, but the sound is nice.

This is not a review.Engadget Reader100December 9, 2011Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Recently got my hands on a pair of SMS Audio Sync by 50, and at first, I thought it was going to be just another artist endorsed headphones. However, when I first put them on, I was completely blown away of the sound quality. The wireless range is excellent, I could listen from at least 50' away and the sound was not affected at all. Overall, a great pair of headphones. The battery life is great, plus No Batteries! If you like high quality sound and you want to invest in a quality product with excellent durability I suggest you get a pair of these. Why spend $300 + on a pair of beats, and they break very easily (my experience), no wireless capability, plus you go through batteries like crazy. Sync by 50 is a definite buy! 5 Stars!!
