We reviewed a prototype version of the Alienvibes EP02 noise cancelling headphones back in October of 2012 (see the original review here
). We are happy to report that we will be revisiting the same headphones in their retail form. Lets see if Ineo Technology
adjusted their design of these headphones at all based on our previous feedback. The sample provided for this review is their model EP02WT, where the WT indicates that they are white in color. Other options include black, green, blue, pink, purple, and red.
The retail version of the AlienVibes EP02 Headphones includes the same 40mm driver we observed in the previously reviewed prototype sample. Primary features of this unit include active noise cancelling, a compact folding design, and a microphone which is built into one of the two 3.5mm cables. To give the user maximum usability, two adapters are included - an airplane stereo plug and a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter.
