When you do a Google search on the Pioneer SE-E721 and head on to the company’s page about the product, perhaps the first thing that will catch your attention are the words “Jump to the Bass.” This is an indication of Pioneer’s approach to the sound performance of these earphones. This is part of their “Bass Head” line, these buds aim to deliver deep bass, which is fitting for fitness enthusiasts.
Jump to the Bass With the Pioneer SE-E721
Low-end audio signatures performed by the Pioneer SE-E721 is abundant, which is pleasing to hear as it is the company’s main advertising shtick for these earbuds. While they do present a nice “kick,” the bass is controlled and extending said depth is not something that you can find in earbuds founds in its price class. When you play something that is relatively bass heavy, such as Daft Punk’s Derezzed, and you still won’t get disappointed.
The bass frequencies are well judged but are not overpowering. Therefore, those who are addicted to super low-end bass signatures might not get their fix with this pair. Audio profiles are full, balanced, and filled with detail with that noticeable “kick” in the low-end performance.
If you do rely on music for motivation, it is recommended to look for punchier musical buds. Also, for the SE-E721, instruments feel confined, and it lacks space as well as separation. This is even made more apparent on files that are of poorer quality.
When you move away from the audio profile and into its design, and you might give it top marks in this category. It boasts a secure, comfy fit, which would otherwise criticize its fairly decent performance. The tips will nuzzle into your ear comfortably. The hangers are coated with elastomer (for added springiness) which makes them pretty much immovable when worn.
When you’re doing your jogging runs around town, thankfully, these earphones won’t roll around the saddle. When you take a look down south of the device, and you will see the cable coiled near the buds so these can easily be tied. However, the design of the cable also means it is prone too tangles and it is advised to let them hang over something when not in use.
Ultimately, the Pioneer SE-E721 gives a pretty decent bass performance. But when you take a look at everything else, it feels like they were half-heartedly made. Still, this is a pair of fully-functional sports headphones.
