Norwegian Kygo has repeatedly shown that there is not necessarily anything negative when a DJ puts his name on headphones. Whether for completely wireless plugs such as the E7 / 900, noise-canceling headphones such as the A11 / 800 or street headphones such as the A6 / 500. The latter were excellent, but not entirely cheap. So what happens when they reduce the price by half with the Kygo A3 / 600?

The style will be completely different. Where the former brought to mind Denon and headphones you can see on the business plane, the A3 / 600 is more reminiscent of street headphones like the Urbanista. They are available in black, white or gray. It is also plastic that dominates, more than metal and imitation leather. But it’s not necessarily just negative, because they feel functional and user – friendly. It is of course metal where it is needed, as in the hinges. It is an advantage that the A3 has compared to the A6 that you can fold them before the trip. As well as putting them in the storage bag if they are to be in the bag.

The ear pads are upholstered in imitation leather and padded with memory foam. They thus form after the ears in a comfortable way. On the other hand, they squeeze a lot against the ears. In addition, since the hoop is not padded, only covered with a rubber-like material, they are not particularly comfortable in length. On the right clock are the normal three buttons to control playback and answer the phone. The buttons are large enough and easy to find with your finger. There is also a connection for the audio cable and the USB connector. Unfortunately, there is old micro-USB connector and there is no fast charging. You can also not use the Kygo Sound app to adjust the sound.

When we put on the first songs in our playlist, it is acoustic, and you want naturalness and richness of detail. We are not particularly impressed, as it sounds hard and intrusive. With pop, it gets better, as it makes less demands. But then we go out of the playlist and put on Kygo’s remix of Coldplay’s Midnight, and then suddenly the pieces fall into place. This is of course what the headphones are tuned for. It’s captivating and tough, just the urban sound that the headphones are made for.

Conclusion

The cheapest headphones in Kygo’s range are of course a compromise. They do not have the same premium material as the more expensive headphones, nor are they as sophisticated in sound. On the other hand, the sound fits perfectly for Kygo’s audience. And they are actually collapsible, something the more expensive ones strangely enough are not. They are therefore easy to take with you, and easy to use. The ear pads are soft, but the headphones can be a little uncomfortable in the long run.
