Everyone’s body is different, so why should manufacturers aim to make the same earphones for everyone? Some offer different earbud sized and other custom accessories, but the Decibullz earphones are the first designed to fit everyone’s ears… perfectly.
This is because the Decibullz earphones are custom molded. And no, you don’t have to send a molded model of your ear for them to manufacture your own set – you can mold them right at home.
There is much more to these headphones, though. We got to play around with these and are ready to tell you just how good or bad these are. Are you looking for a new set of headphones? Stick around to learn more about the Decibullz!
How to mold your Decibullz
The bad news here is that you can’t walk out of the store and start using these. You need to first go home and mold these to your ear, a process that takes a bit of time and patience.
The moldable part of the Decibullz earphones is made of a “thermoplastic with a low melting temperature”. These pieces of plastic separate from the headphone and will become soft and moldable with heat.
It’s a simple process, it just takes a bit of time. To better demonstrate the molding procedure, we will embed a couple videos below. These were put together by the guys from Decibullz and do a great job at explaining every step.
With that out of the way, let’s jump into the juicy details!
These have to be the most comfortable earphones I have ever tried. And of course, they should be… these are molded straight into my ear. Everything feels like it is just in place. Nothing is loose, yet they are not tight or overwhelming.
And if you are annoyed by some of those pesky headphones that keep falling off, that is a problem you will never have with the Decibullz. They fit very snug and never move around.
There is one deal-breaker to this awesome feature, though. These headphones will only really fit you. Others may be able to work around and listen to music, but they may feel uncomfortable using them, unless you have very similar ears.
Earphones can feel amazing, but they also need to sound at least decent. Sadly, I was not blown away by the sound coming from the Decibullz. To be honest, the sound quality is quite bad, especially if you are used to high-quality headphones.
The lows are very hard to recognize and the highs can be a bit too loud. You just can’t hear as much detail as you can with a good pair of headphones, and these arenot exactly cheap.
With that said, I did like that this mold pretty much creates a cover that insulates the sound inside your ear. There is very little sound leakage and the volume is good even when in loud environments.
I took these on the Bart train from San Francisco to Oakland and was able to hear my music very well. And those who have taken that trip will know it gets VERY loud.
Design and build quality
No matter how pretty these molded earphones look in the press images, you simply can’t replicate that look in real life. Let’s face it – ears are not the prettiest part in the human body. These molds look ugly.
The rest of the earphones look good, though. The red and black mixture of colors is always pleasant to look at. The flat cables look good and are good at staying untangled. Construction is also very solid. These do not feel like they will break on you anytime soon.
The manufacturer doesn’t specify that these are water-resistant or sweat proof, but I have taken them on multiple workout sessions and haven’t had a single issue.
Price and final thoughts
They will definitely be a good buy for those who want the most comfortable earphones around. They are great for working out and moving around. You may also like them if you spend a lot of time in loud environments.
Of course, you can also use it for calls with your phone. The headphones have a mic input/action button. This function worked very well with my HTC One M8. People could hear me loud and clear.
Those who care about sound quality will have to look elsewhere, though. Like with anything else, you have to measure your priorities. These are the amazingly comfortable, so you must value that over sound in order to justify the price.
