Searching for comfort and great sound quality in headphones? Look no further than Aerial7 Tank DIY, which allows your inner artist to design your very own headset. Do it yourself with the included markers, or branch out with watercolors, spray paint, and even nail polish.
The Tank comes with two cables (one cable includes a mic) to fit almost all types of music devices, an adapter and a stringed storage bag. The headband is adjustable and the ear cushioning is thick, both adding to comfort.
My Thoughts on the Tank DIY
The Do It Yourself aspect of the Tank made these headphones fun and created family bonding time for me and my 13 year old daughter. We looked through the page of finished projects for inspiration from Drew Brophy, who collaborated with Aerial7 on this project. We chose to use the markers for the ear cups to write the name of my daughter’s favorite band, Teen Top, and water color paints to create a pastel styled look.
After our creation was done (we will be adding more), the listening began. First of all, I loved that they cut out the noise around me. I’ll be taking these on my next flight so I can relax and fall asleep. The sound was amazing! It felt like surround sound in the movies. I had a slight issue with my ears feeling squished after keeping them on for over an hour, so I took a few breaks.
My daughter gave the sound quality two thumbs up. She liked hearing the bass come through and called it “crisp”. Maybe you have to be younger to understand that term, but since she uses them constantly, I know she really likes them.
