The Comfort Headset is a low-cost pair of earbuds designed for, well, comfort, while still offering a good quality sound. There's a choice of black, white or orange. They're a little different to look at compared to most 'regular' earbuds, but that does make a difference when you're wearing them.
Some specs, first, for those that are curious.
- Speaker impedance: 32 ohm
- Frequency response: 20 - 20 000 Hz
- Weight: 12g
- Standard 3.5mm connector
- Earpiece type: Semi canal
- Button to pause music or answer/end calls
At first glance the Comfort Headset reminds somewhat of Apple's Earpods. But, the key differentiator, at least in my experience, is that the Comfort Headset is much more comfortable in the ear.
Here's some of Microsoft's words on why:
"Unlike many other headsets, the earpieces match the shape of the human ear. They are designed to sit securely in the ear while maintaining maximum comfort – it's a great fit for most people's ears."
"The earpieces direct sound deeper in the ear for minimum sound loss. Ergonomic design and a perfectly placed earpiece speaker create a super-comfortable, high-quality listening experience."
There's almost no weight to the Comfort Headset when you're wearing it, as such it's possible to wear for long periods without irritation. I wore it for a 2 hour train ride without really feeling it was even there.
Of course, if you're looking for anything fancy like noise cancellation, look elsewhere and spend some more money. The sound quality is much better honestly than I was expecting. While they're not horrible, it's clear upon picking them up this is a low-priced item, but once you start using them any preconceptions go away.
The Comfort Headset would be perfect bundled with a new Lumia. Alas, that doesn't seem to be the case and as I write this finding a set to buy seems pretty impossible. But if you're looking for a decent pair of 'buds without breaking the bank, definitely check out the Comfort Headset when you can.
At 15 Euros it's a no-brainer.
