OUT OF THE BOX EXPERIENCE
Another awesome feature is that the headphones are foldable. This makes it super easy for carrying around during travel or for secure storage. Honestly, I think all headphones should be foldable now. How many times have your headphones snapped right above the ear cup because the headphones were just not flexible? With the i68 headphones, you won’t have to worry about that much since you can easily fold them up to protect them. Awesome, awesome feature. I absolutely love that.
I also noticed that cord is about 5 feet long. Now, I’m more of a wireless guy because I just can’t deal with the cords. I’m a bit clumsy and I’ll get that cord tangled in everything and having a shorter cord is simply better for me. I found it a lot more manageable than the 6 foot cord I have found on other headsets and I was able even to take these bad boys to the gym and use while working out! Mind you, I tucked in the wire into my armband so that helped tremendously, but still! If I was able to manage with a 5 foot cord, I’m sure you guys can too.
The control bar is nothing too fancy. A sliding bar (which I think is neat) to control the volume, a small single button, and a tiny hole make up the control bar. It seems to sit at just the right spot to adjust the volume or to speak into the mic.
The soft leather (could be faux leather… couldn’t really tell) on the ear cups feel dreamy! They are that soft! And I love, ABSOLUTELY LOVE, that they will conform to your ear for maximum comfort! I’ve said this a million times… comfort cannot be sacrificed when it comes to over the ear headphones… Especially for someone with glasses!!! Because the leather cups will conform to your ear, glasses will not be pressed up against your head, making wearing the headset uncomfortable. This is a huge, HUGE plus for me. I have a long commute to work and if the headphones that I am wearing are not comfortable for long haul usage, I will NOT use them.

As for the music portion of the testing process, I go through several rock, metal, hip hop, R&B, and classical music. I have come to find out that these 5 musical genres pretty much covers the majority of music and can best test the sound quality of any headphones set. The rock and metal portion of the test provides me with how well the sound quality of the mids and highs are. Guitar riffs came out clean and nothing seemed muddled together when listening. Pass. The R&B and Hip Hop provide me with testing grounds for the bass quality. I thought that the i68’s really excelled here. A deep, full, and rich bass sound emanated throughout the music. This is especially apparent with music where the singer has a deep voice. Very, very nice. Excellent marks here. The classical music is what I use to bring it all together. Considering that an orchestral has every possible low and high sounds available, classical pieces are great to get a sense of what the overall sound quality will be. For this test, I used classical Christmas pieces. I was in a Christmas-y mood so why not? Lol Anyways, the deep, bass sound was just vibrant. The bassoons and French horns where just full of sound and the violins and woodwinds were just as clear and impressive. High marks for sound quality.
