Au­gust EP 650S

Mac Format - - RATED - £40 Man­u­fac­turer Au­gust In­ter­na­tional, au­

4 We would nor­mally tell you to stay well away from a pair of wire­less head­phones that were just £40, but this light­weight and fold­able set from Au­gust sounds rather good. The sound is a bit neu­tral and is lack­ing any no­table bass, but it’s clear and con­sis­tent across var­i­ous gen­res of mu­sic. There’s no get­ting away from the low-qual­ity plas­tic feel of the cans, and the clicky but­tons, but the faux leather is com­fort­able, and of all the Blue­tooth-pairable head­phones we’ve tried re­cently with an iPhone, th­ese are one of the fastest to pair. Chris­tian Hall

Look­ing for a starter pair of wire­less cans, or a spare pair for travel? Then th­ese are well worth a punt at £40 a pop.
