So colourful and loud

So you may not have heard much about a brand called Breo at the moment but I can pretty much assure you that give it a few years and it will become a household name, unless we have another big recession again of which they maybe another unfortunate company like Canterbury to go under. We could be wrong on both fronts, but we’re sure that we’re right that Breo at some point in the near future will become a well established brand. To kick off our first review of the Breo range are the Breo Santos Headphones. The particularly variety that we got to indulge in were green but the colour variety also extends to red and blue also. The first thing that we noticed about the Santos series was just how comfortable everything is, the ear cups are super soft and there is none of the discomfort you get with bud headphones. Due to the ears being completely covered the room for bass to travel around is extremely impressive, so much I ended up loudly shouting “WOW” when I first put them on. So what about the features of these headphones? Here is what Breo has to say.

* Good attenuation of ambient noise

* Super soft earcups

* Specially designed damping perforation ensures powerful bass response

* Well defined mid-band and spatial sound reproduction due to foam damping element

* High levels and powerful bass for modern, rhythm-driven music

* Extremely comfortable to wear due to ultra-lightweight design, even for extended listening times

* Rubber finish

Santosrange Breo Santos Headphones (Review)

One thing we really like about the Santos series is actually the wires that go down into your selected device, the same colour is used throughout creating a distinct minimalist but loud look that will no doubt get the attention of passers by. Unlike many ear cupped headphones, both the Santos and it’s other series of headphones are all aesthetically designed to be fashionable, so there are no clunky edges and certainly no connotations to anything remotely embarassing. You maybe wondering about the actual price, well astonishingly they are only £23.95 currently and for what is a very sturdy and good looking set of audio pounders there simply no reason for this item to be snuffed at. As for the geeky specifications take a look below:

* Driver unit: 30mm diameter dome
* Impedance: 32 ohms
* Sensitivity: 108dB3dB
* Frequency response: 15Hz to 20kHz
* Plug: 3.5mm stereo plug
* Professional super bass
* Cord length: 1.2m

Whilst the bass is most certainly impressive, don’t expect treble and vocals to blow you away. Whilst all audible you never get the feeling that what you are hearing is that of builders of such beautiful audio craft as Bose or Sennheiser. These do match up to the Skull Candy range and to be fair, they are probably slightly better, in the audio department anyway. If you are looking for something a little different and an accessory to complete your look, then you can’t go wrong with the Santos range from Breo. Given the price these headphones should cost way more than they actually do. The bold colours may not be for everyone but put with the right outfit and these bad boys really shine and can most certainly draw attention your way.
