The Audio Sharp AS1217 Headphones came packaged inside of the included case in a plastic bag. I would have proffered they be packaged in a cardboard box but that doesn’t stop them from being decent headphones. The included case is a zipper clam shell style case made of a carbon fiber like material. Also included with the headphones are 3 different size ear tips and a small piece of velcro to manage the cable.
The body of the headphones are metal with the logos on the back with left and right printed on the top. The connector is plastic with a gold plated tip. The cable has a transparent jacket and looks very nice with plastic strain reliefs at each end. Overall I would say the headphones have an OK build quality and they look better than they are made.
The sound quality from the headphones is better than the look and build. At this price point they sound great. They are relatively flat, with great detail in the upper frequencies but slightly muddy bass. Thankfully you will not find add bass or bloated highs like some many other headphones on the market.
For the price these are great headphones that like nice and sound even better. If you take care of them and store them in the case they should last a long time but I would not recommend these for rough conditions or to wear while working out.
