At CES this year, I stopped by Spider’s booth and had the opportunity to look over the products they had to offer. I immediately fell in love with these headphones, out of all the headphones I saw while in Vegas, because they were so expensive-looking, fashion flashy, and flat out gorgeous. Perfect for a fashionista like me! The stylish PowerForce set came equipped with the headphones, an adapter, four-foot cable, and a soft carrying bag.

They have two options: Black leather with red stitching or White leather with gold stitching. I opted for the White leather with gold stitching because they appeared to be more feminine. Spider mixes metals and plastics together to give them a sleek look and even better feel. The adjustable sides are on metal sliders, while the actual mechanism is hard plastic. Making adjusting easy, smooth and stiff. Each earcup is attached with a dual pivot connector, giving the option to move then back and forward as you see fit.
The cups swivel and also tuck in, making these headphones super-easy to tote around, especially considering they come with a carrying “pouch”. They don’t take up much space at all in my bag. When I carried them to MBFW in February they were not a hinderance at all. I’ve heard some people have had issues with the ear cups being uncomfortable for long wear. I personally did not have that much of an issue. On the plane I’ve found they can be somewhat uncomfortable, but then the pressure is always an issue for me.
Now I am not professing to be some sort of music/headphone sound expert, but I do listen to music often at work, at home, while cleaning, etc so I think I have a great grasp on what I feel like my music should sound like. These headphones are big on bass, which is great for someone like me who listens to a mix of rap, R&B, and pop.
The headphones have a range of 10-22 Hz, which is good for both sound and clarity. I will say, however, that on certain types of settings I would lose the vocals noticeably, and I do believe the bass is the culprit. One thing that I absolutely love is that no one else could hear what I was listening to, even at high volumes. This is great for times when I don’t want people to hear ratchet songs by folks like 2Chainz or Rihanna! LOL
These definitely are not Beats but these beauties are only $80 on Amazon and $130 on their site which makes them a winner because they are more affordable than other brands! As a fashionable person, they look great and are one of my go-tos when I’m looking to “show out!” I would reach out to them if I were you!
