Soul Combat+ Review
The Soul Combat+ headphones have a closed over-ear design that fits like a compression sleeve. Its ear pads are interchangeable to suit any kind of activity which means this pair of headphones is great for working out! They won’t slip or slide off your head and are very breathable to prevent overheating. The Combat+ draws inspiration from the top athletes of the world, including Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man.
Soul Electronics is a brand that builds headphones for every aspect of life. Whether you’re looking for sports or lifestyle designs this brand has exactly what you need. Notorious for crafting high-quality pairs that outperform the rest, SOUL is a brand name that you can trust. SOUL and partner Chris “Ludacris” Bridges created the first pair of SOUL headphones together in 2011. Since then they have continued to outperform the competition in every way possible.
The Soul Electronics Combat+ has a comfortable headband and ergonomic shape that ensure you won’t feel any irritation while you train. This is a great sounding option that delivers powerful bass and crisp notes so you can power through even the toughest routine with these headphones!
- Interchangeable Ear Pads
- Ergonomic Headband
- Compression Fit
- Powerful Sound
The first is an ultra-comfortable over-ear pad that is ideal for everyday occasions. This well-cushioned pad prevents any irritation from wearing it for hours on end. If you’re planning on wearing your headphones while you’re at work or cleaning the house, this is the perfect ear pad to choose.
The second, a mesh material ear pad made for sports and other endurance activities. This option keeps you cooler while you exercise because it’s breathable and lightweight. Mesh is an open-weave fabric that lets plenty of air pass through its fibers. This is why you should always consider this material while you exercise because it will prevent overheating and be more comfortable overall. The great thing about the mesh pads is they’re easily washable so odors won’t build-up from wearing them while you’re all sweaty.
Having an ergonomically shaped band that fits better while exercising is a must! The Soul Combat+ delivers beautifully with its precisely shaped headband that conforms to the contours of your head and neck. The results are a more enjoyable style of a headphone that is ideal for wearing while you exercise or any other time of the day or night!
Most people choose earbuds over headphones because over-ear styles don’t fit as securely. That’s not the case with these! The compression-like fit is ideal for athletic activities and will stay perfectly in place no matter how hard you train.
The over-ear style gives you better quality sound and won’t seem overpowering like an earbud. You’re left with booming tunes that won’t hurt your ears even after you’ve been listening for hours on end. If music gets you ready to workout then you’ll love these pairs incredible sound that echos through your ears.
The company draws inspiration from the inputs of professional athletes, including 6-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt. Just knowing this gives these headphones an edge over the competition and makes me trust their products to outperform most others.
Rigorous testing ensures that the Soul Combat+ is fully waterproof to maximize its performance. When sweat and moisture seep inside of fabric it will quickly cause odors and will ruin the delicate wiring. That’s why these Soul headphones are a must for athletes because they offer the best waterproofing on the market.
Complete with a modified stereo 4 contact mini-plug that works well with nearly any device, the Soul Combat+ offers incredible corded connectivity. The tough-as-nails kevlar cable makes for excellent longevity. Its Apple in-line controller is sweat and wat-resistant for running in any kind of weather conditions.
This is a big thing because most over-the-ear styles are just too bulky and won’t be easy to carry with you while you’re out and about. Having a design engineered towards performance really shines in this area and is the driving force behind its compact structure.
When you’re purchasing gold-plated connectors be careful that the product doesn’t cost more because of it. The amount of gold used to plate the copper isn’t enough to justify raising the price more than a few dollars.
Weighing in at just over a half pound (236 grams), this is one of the lighter styles of headphone on the market and you’ll really feel the difference while you exercise.
The Combat+ is enjoyable to wear and comes with two types of ear pads that you can interchange depending on the activity you’re engaged in. One is an extra-padded leather that is perfect for everyday wear and the other is a breathable mesh material that is ideal for athletic occasions. The mesh is extremely breathable and keeps you cooler while you train which prevents excessive sweating.
The headband has an open-concept design that allows for plenty of airflows and won’t make you too hot while you train. It’s very comfortable to wear and folds away for easy storage while you’re on the go. The ergonomic shape feels better than traditional styles and conforms to the contours of your head and neck for a more comfortable experience. One aspect I really love about the Combat+ is its compression-like fit that guarantees the headphones won’t slip or slide around no matter how much I move.
The Combat+ has a wired connection that utilizes a ⅛ (3.5mm) gold plated connector. The gold lasts longer than copper alone because it won’t tarnish when exposed to oxygen. The gold gives you a better connection overall and results in crisp, clear sound.
I really enjoy how light these headphones are even though they’re larger than most earphone styles. The way that they stay despite being an over-ear style, the Combat+ really stays in place well and won’t slip or slide around even while you exercise.
