there’s no arguing that audio cans offer better sound experience over buds, however, the one thing that’s stopping us from actually using an on-ear or over-ear cans is its bulk. of course we have no issue with the bulk while we are using it but it is the time when we need to stow it away that we realize it takes up too much space in our backpack. you know how it is with good, padded laptop backpack, don’t you? internally, the space is scarce – like almost no room for anything the size of headphones. however, the Cresyn Axis aims to change all that. this pair of over-ear headphones feature an unique tri-fold mechanism that allows its flexible aluminum headband to be folded down to a very pocketable size, facilitating easy storage and transport, and not to mention minimizing its chances of being crushed when stowed away. other features include generously sized 40mm drivers for deep bass and varied frequency range, sleek aluminum earcups, soft ear cushions, and size-adjustable sections on either side of the headband for more secure and personalized fit. the Cresyn Axis comes in a choice of silver or black earcups and is available in two versions: one with integrated microphone for taking calls (C555H) and one without (C555S) and retails for £39.99 and £44.99 (about US$64 and US$72), respectively. hit the jump for some closer looks.
