Closer Look: Oblanc NC2-1 UFO Headphones
The NC2-1 headphones offer a closed-back, circumaural earpiece, with leatherette removable earpads, and a padded and adjustable headband. The headband adjusts around an inch and a half on each side, and I did need the full three inches of expansion to wear the headphones comfortably. They do fit a bit narrow; however this does make for an audio isolation effect.
The headphones come with an adapter to be able to use them on the computer like a headset, to convert from a 4-pole 3.5mm connector to a split 3.5 mm for headphones, and a 3.5mm for microphone. The cord is generous, a little long for pocket use, although it does allow for keeping your audio device in a messenger bag/purse, as well as using the headphones on your computer.
The round leatherette earpads are padded and comfortable, allowing for prolonged use in comfort. This is also mirrored by the padding on the top of the headband. I did find some pinching after prolonged (read: hours) of use, although this is mostly due to my glasses, as the headphones sit right on top of the edge of my glasses. This would be less of a problem with someone who's got a differently proportioned head.
The in-line call control works well, and provides an added plus for these headphones. The 42" long cord was unwrapped, however, and this could pose some issues down the line.
