Wicked Audio Enix Review: Lightweight Wireless Headphones

When I travel, I rarely check bags, because of the added expense and hassle waiting at baggage claim upon arrival. That means my clothes, toiletries, work materials, and electronics are all in my carry-on bag. So I try to travel as light as possible. I suppose I could use earbuds, but those don't do a good job of blocking out noise, especially on an airplane. Fortunately, Wicked Audio sent me the Enix Wireless Headphones ($64.99) to try. They are quite lightweight and fold flat for travel.

I like the oversized comfy ear cups and the headphone's rubberized finish. They have integrated volume control right on the earcups, so that makes it easy to control the volume without fishing around for your phone. I would like to see more than ten hours of battery life, given that other headphones and even earbuds in this price range are able to offer more.

Pros

  • Large, comfy ear cups
  • Rubberized finish
  • Lightweight
  • Integrated volume control
  • Folds flat for travel

Cons

  • 10 hours of battery life
  • One color (black with red interior in ear cups)

Final Verdict

If you lightweight is your primary goal in an headphone, check out the Enix Wireless Headphones from Wicked Audio.
