Veho ZS-2 sports earphones review
The Veho ZS-2 earphones are small, lightweight and designed for those with an active lifestyle. That’s all well and good, but how do they sound?
There seems to an ever-growing number of gadgets aimed at those with gym-memberships – special shoes and an impressive array of sports under and overwear designed to get the best out of sports people, not to mention all of those tracking devices now a standard feature in phones, watches and bands.
The fact of the matter is, like all those tracksuits worn for comfortably slobbing on the couch, most won’t even get to see a bead of sweat, let alone an enthusiastic half-marathon.
What I am trying to say is that, all the fitness stuff aside, earphones have to sound good else everything else is just pointless.
Veho ZS- 2 sports earphones design
The Veho ZS-2s earphones come in a water, rain and sweat resistant body attached to a natty black/yellow cord. Yes, they are IP64 rated, which means that these sports earphones are totally protected from dust ingress and water spray from any direction.
I can report that these are indeed comfortable to wear, even with glasses.
The earbuds themselves are fitted with non-slip caps and do a decent job of staying put as well as isolating you for most external noises. Both are plus points during a vigorous workout in the gym… I should imagine.
Another plus point regarding the fitting of these sports earphones is that the cable enters at the earpiece which allows the base of the over-ear hook to be articulated. This adds to the ease of getting a nice, comfortable fit no matter what shape your head and/or ears are.
There’s a little clip which also has a recess to slip the cables through to keep them out of the way and the Veho logo-emblazoned rubber rectangle on the cables allows you to take up any slack, again to prevent you getting tangled.
Veho ZS- 2 sports earphones sound and use
As I stated at the beginning of this review, this is the important bit as far as I am concerned.
Having earphones that can withstand sweaty workouts means nothing if your favourite tracks sound like a drunk shouting in to a tin can.
When I first started testing out the Veho ZS-2 360s the bass seemed very light. Thankfully, after a few hours, the buds seemed to loosen up in the low end and things became more enjoyable.
The 10mm acoustic drivers put out a crisp sound that tends to lean more towards aggressive mids. Treble is clear and not too harsh and the bass gets a decent look in too. If they allow more bass after a few more listens then that would be great for those that need the low-end pumping as they’re pounding the streets. For me, I think they capable for most forms of music.
Not being a fan of earphones I was reacquainted with one of their benefits. The ZS-2s are incredibly light and can be bundled up in to the smallest of pockets. Very useful for the warm days we’ve had recently where jackets are not required.
Veho ZS-2 sports earphones conclusion and price
I would prefer more sophisticated handling of the mids and with a little more bass – but that could happen with some more hours use.
I like that they come with an IP64 rating and the yellow and black tangle proof cable definitely gives them a sporty look.
All things considered, I would have expected these to be more expensive than the £32 being asked for them on Amazon.co.uk.
For that price, I think that the Veho ZS-2 360 sports earphones are well worth checking out before you head off to feel the burn, or whatever it is that you fitness types do.
