Audio Quality, Microphone & Sound Isolation on the PX7
The Audio output via the PX7 headphones is super loud and clear even at full volume levels, We also noticed the sound balance is extremely good, although it has great bass, in our opinion we felt the treble could have been a bit better by default but, that’s, not a big deal at all, we can adjust the sound to your liking on your phone and laptop Equalizer and you are good to go.
We listened to a few 80s pop and early 2000s rap music [Eminem songs and Backstreet Boys] and the recent ED Sheeran songs, these albums were a delight to hear on these headphones. These headphones are great for day-to-day general usage scenarios and also your occasional Hi-FI music sessions on those rainy evenings.
Speaking about the microphone, these were good enough for your regular phone and Web Calls, The Audio while making and receiving calls was loud and clear. The Sound Isolation on these headphones is good enough if you are in a quiet or less noisy environment. The Sound isolation is fair in our opinion, the most common sounds were cut off up to a great extent, noises such as Fans, airplanes and general hiss were cut out and we only the sounds on the headphones.
