Nokia Purity Review

0. phoneArena posted on 05 Apr 2012, 09:03

For its premium headsets, Nokia has partnered up with Monster – the company that brought us the popular Beats by Dre lineup of premium headphones. And sure enough, the big retail box that the Nokia Purity comes in hints that we indeed have a premium set of earphones on our hands. Also, kudos to Nokia for throwing in that nice hard shell carrying case and the five eartip pairs of different sizes...

An app called launcher7 that turns your android phone into looking like a wp7

beats are designed for hip hop only and not suitable for anything else. I don't know about the headset but the purity full ear set that I won from Nokia is awesome. the only bad thing is the ear design itself. it is rectangular so it puts pressure on your ear... not much but over time it can irritate

Beats are overpriced and overrated pos(much like the iphone) with overpowering bass, poor mid and high.
The best earphones with mic and controller out there for Android is the Klipsch Image S4A.

I have a pair of Power Beats & i use them to listen to Korn and more fast paced music when im running or in the gym and they sound great, i hear instruments that i havent heard while using other headphones or while listening in my car. Beats are made for music not just Hip Hop.

Kinda find that hip hop sounds awesome on beats but others just sounded normal to me
Love the design though although its highly overpriced

I Agree with Mobile-X-Pert, these are MEANT to be used with ONLY Nokia Lumia phones. Sure, they can work on others, but they were engineered specifically for the Lumias, so the review is kind of unfair. Also, customer reviews from Amazon UK are VERY Positive..

The vibrations caused by the dangling cable is not a flaw. First of all the thin black cable designed was made to prevent the cables from getting tangled while at the same time making the headsets long-lasting. These vibrations produced by the dangling cable help the BASS sound clearer just like if you were listening to some drums.

Seylan, the headsets that come along with the N8 are pretty much made by the same materials and they only work properly with the N8, the voices dont come out right and sound a bit disturbed.

Im surprised you give a score above 5 for any Monster/Beats product they're garbage especially for the price! Well ill concede the Turbine Pro Copper are decent but thats stretching it and for the price Monster wants for those ($400) you could do soooo much better

you could buy a pair of $20 pioneer generic earphones and they would provide better quality

Even the Vsonic GR06 for $50 murders, slaughters, these earphones

for $100 they're competing with some serious players and all these Monster/Beats earphones have is marketing and a high price to go with it
