Recently, because of the great mobile device explosion of the 201th century, companies have spread their efforts quite thin when making headphones solutions. Stellar music playback is no longer the sole concern. Today’s headphones wear multiple hats. Manufactures endeavor to blanket more aspects such as call quality, Bluetooth support, noise isolation and more. So it’s very refreshing to see a company rolling up the sleeves to get back to basics. Such is the launch of the HP-800 Monitor-Class Over-Ear Headphones from NuForce.
The HP-800 Monitor-Class headies are said to bring long hours of comfort during extended listening times.
