Nuraphone review: A different take on audio quality
The Nuraphone headphone's use of audio testing is a unique concept that can work well in delivering better quality music to your ears, although they're not always the most comfortable headphones to wear.
- Audio testing ensures a better fit to your own hearing needs.
- Configurable touch buttons work well.
- Can sound great once the app is in play.
- Buds plus headphones can't help but feel odd.
- Heavy travelling case.
- Custom charging cable.
- Custom connection cables cost extra.
The Australian-produced Nuraphones are a distinctly different take on the concept of a pair of high-end headphones, partially due to their construction but mostly to do with the way they actually handle audio balancing for the individual user. Under the right circumstances they can sound very good indeed, but the same unique design also introduces some issues that mean they won't be the best choice for every music lover.
- Generic looking design.
- Both headphones and buds in one set.
- Wireless by default.
- Heavy carrying case.
Battery Life and Installation
- Installation is app based.
- Involves the equivalent of a full hearing test.
- Immersion bass control.
- Worth setting up multiple profiles.
- Good for album listening.
- Good noise cancelling and isolation.
- Customisable side buttons.
- Great audio quality.
- Some comfort issues.
