Mackie CR-Buds+

Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones

With its extremely low-priced CR-Buds, the in-ear newcomer Mackie primarily addresses the consumer segment. The Plus version costs about twice as much, but also comes with a two-driver system and promises nothing less than "Pro Studio sound wherever you go".

Editor's recommendations: Mackie

Although the slightly subtle sound of the larger Mackie MC-250 headphones were less tiring during long listening sessions, the greater liveliness and agility of the MC-150s are simply more stirring in the end. What’s even nicer is that you get all the listening pleasure for a very affordable price that makes the purchase decision really easy. In the price range below one hundred euros, the new Mackies get a first class recommendation from me.

Congratulations, Mackie! The MC-250 are very well done and a very moderately priced entry into the studio headphone segment. For about one hundred euros, you get a sound-reliable working device, which also suits the DJ booth, and by reliable, I mean that they meet high standards, ensuring that a well-made mix from them also sounds reasonable on all other devices. This makes them my current recommendation in this price range for studio and recording applications.

The Mackie CR-Buds are a no brainer for those after reliable performance and quality sound output at a low price. However, with an RRP of 20 Euros, you also need to be realistic in expectation. If you are, you’ll be pleased by what you find here. These are an ideal choice if you’ve just purchased a new smartphone and aren’t satisfied with the earphones included with the handset. It’s a common gripe with phone owners and these in-ears are a welcome upgrade for such an application, with a price that falls below what you’d expect for a much more limited peripheral. Sound is not sensational here but it’s of a decent quality that won’t disappoint, while the hands-free microphone does exactly what it needs to do.
