For their first set of over-ear headphones, Radiopaq have managed to design a rather stylish headset. As you can see, I was sent the “Candy Green” edition (Green coincidentally being my favourite colour), but there’s also High Gloss Copper, Candy Purple, Metallic Silver and Soft Touch Black (because if you’re going unconventional with the colours, you might as well give them funky names too).
The cups are a little bit small, I found that they sat on my ears rather than around them, which is a tad on the uncomfortable side. They’re also a little bit tight, but not so much that it’s bothersome.
The material used for the padding on both the band and cups is an excellent, non-stick number which is very comfortable.
Overall, it’s sleek and slim design is quite attractive without sacrificing design for comfort. On top of that it fits well both around the neck and on the skull. Past being comfortable, did I mention they were stylish? Radiopaq have gone in for a flat, sleek design with the Duo as opposed to the larger headsets that are generally tethered to a home computer or the rounded design more often seen from Skullcandy.
The lack of a volume controller is a bit of a nuisance if you’re using it from a desktop PC, but presumably that was to keep costs down.
