Build quality alone is superb and it easily beats anything else I have ever tested in a similar price bracket. The problem is the MagicBox II is a one trick pony, it is not a jack of all trades offering a built in radio, MicroSD card support nor power bank features. As such what it does do, it needs to do well…. and the truth is at its core, it’s just a very well made speaker that sounds distinctly average.

While it’s light weights and compact size may appear to be an attraction the fact is I can’t help but feel its size is its biggest flaw.

One of the most relatable comments I have read about the Sonorous III’s (a review on sonicelectronix) was “My only complaint is these headphones are addicting” and with all my heart, I couldn’t agree more, trying to write the sound quality section of this review was quite honestly an annoyance as all I wanted to do was listen to the music. For me this is a rarity as I oft far more enjoy writing about products than I actually do using them.

The 16 Ohm impendence means that no additional hardware is required to drive the Sonorous III’s and they are as happy connected to a HiFi as they are a laptop, tablet or phone. An example of just how easy they are to drive, I am yet to take them above 30% volume on a laptop and very little further on tablets and phones and I seriously struggle to see what benefit a headphone amp would offer.

Considering how easy they are to drive they are very well suited to those seeking to attain the best quality possible from their portable devices without compromise. Unfortunately, while the isolation is impressive during playback considering the closed back design there is significant leakage more akin to an open back and the lack of a bundled carry case will mean those seeking perfection on the go will need to make an additional outlay to protect their investment with the Final Audio Design Semi Hard Carrying Case.
