Snab OverTone EP-101M – Great budget earphones!

Snab is a brand that I recently discovered when I was looking for new in-ear headphones. Being a fan of heavy bass, I was looking for something to suit my taste.

I first considered the Sony MDR-XB50AP which are part of the Extra Bass range, but they weren’t to my taste. But then a mate of mine said that he purchased the Snab OverTone EP-101M and that he was very happy with them, so I gave them a go. I was pleasantly surprised, not only was the sound clear but it was bassy just the way I like it.

Price: €35.50 (£30.78 , $40.24)

Build Quality

The overall build quality is of a high standard, especially when comparing it to other headphones on the market of similar price. The primary material of the housing is aluminium which looks very stylish. The earpice’s are magnetic which eliminates them from getting tangled.

The cable feels strong and is formed of a firmly twisted wire with an elastic, slippery surface. The cable itself comes with a pre-applied clip which I found helps the headphones stay in place.

The cable also comes with a single button which you can use to answer calls and pause your music which is very convenient.

Sound quality

The sound quality is exceptional. I used many in-ear headphones from all sorts of brands such as Beats, Sony, JVC and Blitzwolf and for my taste, the Overtone 101M seem to sound better – but we all have different taste and the headphone brands mentioned all have their own strengths and weaknesses.

If your a fan of good bass and good quality sound then these headphones are for you!
