Going over the earcups, the SMS Audio Sync by 50 have an on/off / mute button on the right. There is also a button that activates the THUMP Enhanced Bass feature. The left ear cup on the other hand contains the volume rocker that is very handy during wireless mode.

The SMS Audio Sync by 50 uses a transmitter called the Kleer lossless transmission technology. Sennheiser has been using the same piece of innovation for its television headphones. The technology is optimized specially for audio wireless transmission and compared to Bluetooth, it saves 10 times the battery life. So it’s really not just another frill in an audio device, it also has a much higher purpose.
The SMS Audio Sync by 50 package contains a small Kleer dongle – roughly the size of a matchbox. The dongle has a 3.5 mm plug that connects to most portable devices like mobile phones, iPod, or a mobile computer. The transmitter needs to be synchronized to the headphones first. Synchronization is easy though and doesn’t entail much maneuvering. The technology delivers quality sound, matching that of the more common cables, and the signal doesn’t get lost even up to 50 feet from the transmitter and even through walls. What’s more, up to 4 SMS Audio can be collectively serviced by the transmitter. The package also comes with a cable with built-in microphone and a push-to-talk switch if, for example, the user does not want to go wireless or intends to use the phone for a call. Unfortunately, the headphones do have active noise cancellation but with the cool features of the SMS Audio Sync by 50, one would hardly complain.
As for sound quality, the SMS Audio Sync by 50 lives up to its hip -hop design. It has a professionally tuned digital equalizer that gives justice to bass sounds. The sound comes out even and well reproduced. The THUMPP mode also adds an additional boost to the audio for a more overwhelming sound experience. On the other side of the spectrum though, the sound quality becomes a little more edgy than desired when it comes to the fairly narrow band that includes the percussions. Voices are clear and sharp though so the user will definitely have a good time listening to the song renditions of their favorite singers.
Overall, the SMS Audio Sync by 50 is definitely recommended for an amazing sound experience. The pair costs $399, rather steep, but the price can be easily explained by the specs and features of the headphones.
