The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth are decent-sounding, stable headphones. They don't fall off your head even during physical activity and are relatively quiet to the people around you because of their low leakage. Unfortunately, they are uncomfortably tight and poorly block ambient noise with their weak active noise cancellation.

Diskin Wireless Bluetooth Design Picture

The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth are sleek, stylish on-ear headphones that have the same design as the Bohm B-66. They're sufficiently stable to not slip off your head during mild physical activity and offer a decent control scheme that's efficient, once you are used to the controls. Unfortunately, they are not comfortable headphones. They feel too tight and will cause soreness and discomfort on larger heads very quickly.

Diskin Wireless Bluetooth Design Picture 2

The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth headphones look very similar to the Bohm B-66. They have the same design and circular ear cups as well as the same black and silver color scheme. The subtle difference between the two headphones is only with the brand logo on the back of the ear cups. They look stylish and are sleek enough to be eye catching in public but are hard to distinguish from The B-66 at a distance.

What it is: The force that the headphones exert on your head, once you have them on. This is purely a measurement of the force applied, which does not take into account the earpad's surface area and the resulting pressure you will feel, on or around your ears.

The Diskin wireless Bluetooth, like the Bohm b-66, are not comfortable headphones. They apply too much pressure on the ears, to maintain their stable fit but gets uncomfortable quickly and can cause soreness during long listening sessions. The padding on the headband and ear cups are decent, but these headphones feel too tight and are even more, uncomfortable for larger heads.

Diskin Wireless Bluetooth Stability Picture

These headphones like the Bohm B-66, are quite stable on the head. They apply a lot of pressure on the ears, which prevents them from slipping off even during mild physical activities.

The Diskin like the Bohm B-66 are mid-sized on-ear headphones that do not take up much space in a backpack or handbag. The earcups also lay flat for easier storage and transportation. Unfortunately, they do not fold up into a compact format, which means they won't fit in a pocket, even larger jacket pockets. They also do not come with a case which is dissapointing.

Diskin Wireless Bluetooth Build Quality Picture

Build quality is decent and robust enough to handle a few drops without damage. However, although the build looks metallic, it's not metal and will not be as durable as some other headphones that use metal to reinforce the headband. This means they could get damaged under moderate physical stress, and the swivel hinge is weak and a little loose.

Diskin Wireless Bluetooth Frequency Response

The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth have a decent audio reproduction. Bass is punchy, but a little hyped, and the overemphasis extends into the mid-range. This gives the headphones a slightly boomy sound that's a bit more noticeable, because of the dips in the higher frequencies, that make instruments and vocals sound less clear. They also don't sound very open due to their poor soundstage but on the upside, they don t have much harmonic distortion.

Good performance. The bass response is flat for the most part, except for the low-bass bump of the left ear. This is mostly likely an artifact of the noise cancelling system. However, the overall level of the bass is overemphasized by about 3dB, making these headphones slightly bass-heavy.

Very good performance. The slight bump in low-mid, which is the continuation of the bass overemphasis, adds some boxiness to the sound. The bump in high-mid tends to push vocals/leads forward, however, at 1.23dB the effect is barely noticeable here.

Poor treble. The 8dB dip surrounding 5KHz negatively affects the clarity and comprehensibility of vocals/leads. The bump at 8KHz pushes the sibilant sound very slightly forward. The under-emphasis in high-treble tends to take the brilliance and airiness out of the sound.

4.9 Soundstage
Show Help
What it is: Soundstage qualities are not inherent to the audio content, the headphones have to 'create' them rather than 'reproduce' them. They determine whether the sound is perceived to be coming from inside or in front of the head, how open and spacious the soundstage is, how much the headphones acoustically interact with the environment, and how strong the phantom center is.
When it matters: When an accurately produced, large and spacious soundstage, similar to that of a stereo loudspeaker setup is desired.
Openness
Show Help
What it is: How open the headphones are, and how open and spacious they sound. This quality affects both stereo and mono content. This test differentiates between acoustically and electronically produced crosstalk and only takes the acoustically generated crosstalk into account. This value is the inverse of the Noise Isolation test score.
When it matters: When an open, wide and roomy sound is desired. A value of 10 indicates a fully open headphone, and a value of 0 indicates a fully closed headphone.

Acoustic Space Excitation
Show Help
What it is: How loud the headphones are, and how much they excite their environment acoustically. If the headphones are loud and open enough, the sound leaking from the headphones takes some of the characteristic of its environment (reflections/reverb) before reflecting back into the open headphones and to the listener's ears. This quality affects both stereo and mono content. This value is the inverse of the Leakage test score.

Correlated Crosstalk
Show Help
What it is: How strong and solid the phantom center is. This is mostly a stereo quality and its effects on mono content are minimal. This test is sensitive to the phase of the crosstalk and whether it is produced acoustically or electronically.
When it matters: When a true reproduction of the stereo image is desired. A value of 0 indicates no crosstalk, or that the existing crosstalk is not correlated enough to affect the phantom center. A negative score means the crosstalk is out of phase with the original signal, resulting in a slightly wider stereo image at the expense of creating a 'hole' at the center of the stereo field. A positive score means the crosstalk is in phase and positively affecting the phantom center.
Good value: >1dB
Noticeable difference: 0.3dB
:
0.01 dB

Poor soundstage. Being on-ear headphones, the effect of the headphones on the outer ear is minimal and does not give the impression of a large soundstage. Additionally, with the Openness at 4.7 these headphones are not considered open either, which further affects the soundstage.

6.3 Imaging
Show Help
What it is: Imaging qualities are inherent to the audio content, the headphones have to 'reproduce' them rather than 'create' them. They determine how accurately the objects are positioned in the stereo image, and how transparent the imaging is.
When it matters: When accurate positioning of the objects in the stereo image, and clear and transparent imaging is desired.

Poor isolation. The passive isolation provided by the ear cups is decent. It starts to kick-in at around 600Hz, and reaches its peak isolation of 32dB at 4KHz. The active noise cancellation performs poorly and is effective only between 40Hz and 400Hz, providing a maximum cancellation of 10dB. There may also be some audible low-end rumble produced by the noise cancelling system.
