I was going to by some akg 518 le, but because they are not comfortable after 20, 30 minutes, i was wondering if there were any headphones who could manage such powerful sound as these ones delivered. Someone told me about the noontec. At first sight, i thought to myself these are cheap imitations of dr dre beats solo. When i saw all the reviews of people who purchased these headphones, my opinion changed immediately. These headphones are the best in terms of quality price, i mean the quality is much much better than de dr. The mids are there, the bass is there, tight, not so sturdy as beats solo, but it delivers plenty for you. If you’re looking for a good pair of headphones, and you dont want to spend too much money and have the same quality sound as others headphones who cost 90 or 100 £, then buy the noontec zoro, because this destroys completely other expensive headphones. The earpads are very comfortable, after using 30, 50, 60 minutes.
So i’m not an expert with headphones, but from my limited exposure. Properly impressed – even on free delivery they arrived within 2 days. Sound quality far out-strips anything i’ve found in this price range on a variety of music genres. A clear replacement for my previous trend of going with skull-candy, and better sound than a pair of sony’s i got as a pressie that cost over triple the price of these.

These headphones resemble dre’s very much so, but the sound is way more balanced and in my opinion, more accurate. The bass integrates well with the mids with perhaps a slight roll off up in the highs. Not such a bad thing since that allows louder listening without screech and the zoro then really snaps into focus well. Comfortable to wear for longer periods and very good looking too. Durability seems fine and sensitivity is amazingly good. You can use the zoro with an ipod set at very low volume and still get a satisfactory, balanced sound. No need for amping whatsoever. At this price level, i feel that the zoro is amongst the best, giving you a headphone that looks stylish without the fat, booming bass of many other similar headphones at a very competitive price.
I originally bought these to use for the gym and i also listened to some beats years ago at school. My verdict however was i wasn’t too impressed with beats but noontec are really impressive and much better sound but still keeping that bass. They also look cooler in my personal opinion and very practical with it’s fold away style and little bag and the cable is really good for plugging my irig into my bluetooth water jet speakers. If your looking some some budget beats look-a-likes, look no further.
Will be a gift for my daughter, bought it a lot of time in advance but only after i spent weeks on the internet comparing brandsi was ready to pay a fortune for the dr dre beats and i am so happy i didn’t because these are much better than those costing 129 gbpfirst, the box came a bit dirty and unsealed with a tiny scratch on the headphones. . So i contacted the seller, sent me a free posting sheet and i sent the package back requesting a replacementwhich came fast, sealed, some fingerprints on the box from handling. . But the box is white, easy to get it stainedbut all sealed, the item intact, no scratchesso, serious seller, good price, good communicationi recommend.
Great gift for my son, no instructions on how to fold them which was the only downside as you worry you may break them, excellent sound quality and you dont hear it unless you are wearing headphones, look good well made would buy again.
After doing a lot of research and reading many reviews, i decided to but the noontec zoros. I cannot believe that dr dre beats headphones are so popular when they cost so much more than these and sound poor in comparison. I also cannot believe that noontec aren’t chasing dr dre for design infringment. In any case, these sound terrific now and to be honest, they’re still improving. I did read other reviewers saying that these headphones need to be run in and i thought. But they really do improve over time. Due to high demand i imagine. And the packaging was excellent.
Great price and the build quality is spot on. I’ve tried beats before and to be honest the sound is no different than on these. I run a lot and i’ve heard that these fall of your head because of the headband having no rubber or grips on it, but i can confirm that this statement is not true. They never fell down once, just make sure the headband is fairly secure before running and you will be fine. The sound quality is very good, a generous amount of bass is provided on all types of music and they neutralise the outdoor sounds such as heavy winds very well. They look very smart and expensive if you like, and the folding feature is very secure and doesn’t feel tacky at all. The bag is a great addition to carry these headphones, and its made from a nice suede type of material which is smart. My only concern is the headphone cable, this feels pretty thin and it could break if it got caught in something or stretched, but you could always get a braided cable or even a monster one if needed. All in all, i highly recommend this set of headphones for both the casual and outdoor person – you will definitely not be disappointed with the quality and price of the headphones.
Wow what great headphone and they aren’t expensive great soundcommunication from seller arrive bang on time very very happy.
Absolutely brilliant music quality for the money. They’re so much cheaper than alternative brands and yet i’m impressed with how well these headphones perform. I seriously recommend going for this option if you’re a money saver yet also still picky with music quality and comfort like myself as these are great. Only slight downside is they’re obviously not very sound cancelling but i’m not too worried about that as i mostly use them whilst studying or on public transport. I’m very happy overall with these headphones.
We wanted a good quality and good looking set of headphones for our teenage daughter, but without the expense of ‘beats’. It took a lot of looking around, as they tended to either be ‘good looking’ or ‘good quality sound’, but rarely the two together at the price we were able to pay. Then we came across noontec zoros, which had a few good reviews. We took the plunge and bought them and now have a happy teenager (albeit a happy teenager that we can no longer communicate with, as she always has her headphones on).
Packaging was dirty suggesting it had been in warehouse a long time, small scuff mark on headphone. Other than these minor issues they are great fitting sounding headphones. My oh has dr dre and they are just as good. Highly recommend them if you want high quality sound without the designer tag and price. I bought them after reading a review on amazon recommending them over dr dre.
I was about to buy the beats solo when i saw someone say in the feedback section ‘nothing on the noontec’. So i did some research and decided to buy these. Sound quality is perfect and it’s a lot cheaper than paying £130 for beats. Definitely recommend you buy the noontec zoro’s instead of beats.
For the price they are pretty good, but i’d only recommend to those on the move. If wanting headphones just for home you can get denons or similar for less money, better quality, but they’re normally twice the size & too big to carry or walk around with.
Liked these a lot, bought as a present on the reviews and not disappointed, the audio is well balanced with the base punchy and the high’s snappy, probably a bit too on the sharp side for me but it’s all personal preference, the build and styling is great, minimal outside bleeding despite being ‘on ear’, the detachable cable is useful since the one it comes with has failed, this means buying a new one is cheaper than replacing the whole phones obviously, would thoroughly recommend to anyone on the fence, these will trump anything sat in your local high-street electrical store for half the price, i’m afraid beats are just the product of good marketing and brand placement not quality audio reproduction, no contest.
Sound quality is better than anything i can buy in dublin under €150. They’re sturdy, fold away neatly, and come with a detachable cable so i can simply leave them around my neck and put the cable in my pocket. Only complaint: a bit tight around the ears.
I was really impressed with these right out of the box. I can confirm that the build quality is extremely good, they fold away very nicely and neatly and the finish is great. Onto the sound quality, well the noise isolation is very impressive to start with and as you might expect the bass is immediately apparent. It does punch through at the expense of high range clarity at times and it may depend on the type of music you like as to how much you’ll be impressed by these. Personally, i find the zoros perform best with jazz tracks. The double bass is so clear and punchy, and you get a very full sound from piano, brass etc. I think for the price these are a fantastic buy and unless you particularly want to be seen with the beats brand there’s not too much to think about.
These are the first set of full size head phones i have had for some times (bought for my wife). They are considerably more comfortable and have better sound quality than both my sennheiser and sure in ear head sets both of which cost twice the price and are not as robust (both have died). The only down side is they obviously do not fit in your pocket.
I have a friend with the dr dre headphones so was keen to compare them – the result – the dr dre ones are better but only marginally. The ear pads are better on the dr dre ones and the bass/sound is just that little bit more 3d than the noontec ones. However all in all they are realyl good and well worth the £30 – at least i wont cry if i brake them. My friend who pais £180 for the dr dre ones might though.
Bought for my dad and he loves them. For the price the are well made and have great sound.
Great sounding headphones with amazing clarity and a good amount of bass, especially for bassheads like me. Have had them for a couple of months now and the soundstage has really expanded to reveal something that is probably found in headphones triple the price. The zoro’s also have very good noise cancelling and retain their clarity even at a lower volume; i’ve used them in the gym and in libraries successfully with very minimal leakage, while still being able to hear and enjoy my music, unlike with my previous sony mdr-v55s. They also fold and can be stored in a black pouch provided by the manufacturer. I got them for £47 so £35 is definitely a steal. Wholeheartedly recommend as i can’t fault it (with the exception of beats by dre comparisons when these are much much better).
