When Thunder E first handed me the PNY Midtown 200′s, I was dismissive – a product that looked like just another average set of headphones. I unenthusiastically got them ready for their paces at the BooredatWork empire, and as I left the office one evening, I plugged them in to give them a brief test. It is then what I remembered my mother saying about a book and its cover – full, forgiving, boisterous sound from a lower-midline level seat of earbuds. It was a pleasant surprise about the quality and sharpness of the sound, giving me a full feeling of joy from them.
Please bear in mind, the earbuds themselves take a little getting used to, and you might have to work a bit to find the cups that feel right in your ears; once you are used to them, it will feel like sound floating into your mind. Plus, with a price point starting at $35.99 ($42.99 as show) it is not exactly a bank breaker. This is a great upgrade over most every similarly price earbuds on the market; certain to get you in the good graces of those in the gift-giving market.
