I’ve been using the Houdt Tsunami headphones that are currently available at iFix, either in store on online. They sit very comfortably over my ears, and not too tight that my ears eventually ache from wearing it for too long. The downside to that though, is that it’s not noise cancelling; which I don’t mind since I work from home. I’m enjoying the quality of sound on it, well the metal playlist on Deezer sounds good right now!


I’ve previously used a Houdt wooden cover on an iPhone 5 and received a lot of compliments, so I’m guessing wooden accessories have a quite an appeal. The Houdt Tsunami headphones are no different. They definitely stand out from regular headphones, and even more so because of the stylish stand to show it off in, which is available separately.


For those of you interested in the tech specs:
Speaker size: 50mm
Frequency response: 20Hz-20KHz
Impedance: 32 Ohm
Sensitivity: 107+/-3dB (1KHz, 1mW)
Rated input power: 30mW
Cable: 2.0m Nylon cable
Plug: 3.5mm gold plated & 6.3mm adaptor


iFix recently bundled these two products together for a R999 but alas it’s sold out. The Tsunami headphones are available at a cost of R1499, and the stand at R699. The good news is that I’m giving away a set to one lucky Wired to the Web reader!
