Up for review today I’ve got an inexpensive set of headphones from Wicked Audio called the EVAC. These are just regular stereo headphones, there’s no microphone, these are just for listening to music but it has a standard 3.5mm jack so they will work with most phones and other portable audio devices. Price is under $30 for the EVAC headphones, but the sound and build quality is decent for the price. Read on to learn more..
Product: Wicked Audio EVAC

You’re part of an elite group and you expect more from your headphones. Wicked EVAC fulfills that expectation. With its against the grain attitude and its no limits sound quality, Wicked EVAC will be the last thing you see before you lose touch with reality and get lost in your music.
IMPEDANCE: 32 Ohms
CORD LENGTH: 4ft/1.2m
Impressions / Review:
How about we start off with a quick video unboxing:
The box the EVAC come in is sort of a double box with a slip cover over the top. There’s a window on the side to let you see the headphones themselves
Inside of the box you’ll only find the headphones and a brief user guide.
The cord is a rather thick braided style making it durable and on the end is a gold plated audio connector.
The headband is comfortable as it’s well padded on the inside and cloth covered. The only issue is that there are a lot of stray threads sticking out everywhere and it gives it an ‘unfinished’ look. The headphones themselves are lightweight overall, the earpieces are plastic and have the Wicked Audio logo on each of them.
The speakers have a decent amount of soft padding on them making them comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
I used the EVAC headphones with my HTC One, ZuneHD and even my PS Vita for testing.
The first thing I noticed is that they can get very loud, but they have a hollow sound to them and not much treble but a decent amount of bass.
I like a lot of treble in my music, or at least a good balance between bass and treble but these are light on the treble or highs.
The headphones do fold up for travel which is kind of nice, but the metal ends do stick out quite a bit.
I checked Amazon and the price right now for the Wicked Audio EVAC headphones is about $28 and that’s inexpensive for a set of headphones. For the price they aren’t bad at all, but just don’t except exceptional sound quality from them. The sound is decent when you take the price into consideration, and overall for under $30 they’re worth it.
I have Denon and SMS Audio headphones and of course there’s just no comparison, it’s the old adage, you get what you pay for. My kids think these are great, they like the looks of them and they especially like the ‘military’ them of them. If you look closely at the box you’ll see it’s all military themed with special forces and other related things. These would a great set of headphones for kids, the sound is decent enough and they aren’t that expensive so that when they break them you’re not out of a lot of money.
For the price they’re not bad at all, they’re comfortable to wear for long periods and they seem to be made well enough for the price.
- Sort of hollow sounding
- Not much treble
