Born in 2011, UBSOUND is an Italian company specialized in audio products. Their range of products are limited, this makes me think that the company prefers the quality over the quantity. This UBSOUND Fighter is the top range of their in-ear headphones.
UPDATE 2017: I’ve been using this headphone for a year plus now, the original color was white, but now all the parts in rubber turned out yellowish.
At first glance, this UBSOUND Fighter looks sturdy and well made. I’ve read some reviews complaining about breakages and manufacturing defects, but I haven’t had any problems. I’m using these headphones daily and they are still perfect.
The earbuds are a bit bulky, I had to change the rubber with the smallest size. However, after a couple of hours of wearing them, I start feeling a bit of discomfort.
The cable is flat and anti-tangle, looks strong and it’s 1.2 mt long. The microphone is in the remote control with whom one can start/stop the music or answer/close the call. The quality of the microphone is good and on the other end the voice arrives bright and clear.
There are 4 colors available, all of them trendy and cool: white, black, blue and red.
This is the selling point. The sound is amazing. With a V-shaped sound, I enjoyed them listening to rock, pop and classic music. Ed Sheeran plays perfectly with these headphones.
While walking on the street, listening to audiobooks from my phone, it requires half of the volume power than with other on-ear and in-ear headphones, thanks also to the high isolation.
The sound is great for watching movies too. The highs are bright and the bass consistent but not annoying.
A bit disappointed by the extras. The external box looks great, matte black with glossy images, but inside there are only the usual 2 sizes of rubber earbuds and a low-quality bag for the headphones.
Pros & Cons

If you are looking for a good present for yourself or a friend, this is a good choice. Not expensive with a great impression is a perfect headphone for an everyday use. From the calls to the music to the audiobooks, the sound is excellent. The style is elegant and cool at the same time. The Italian design is a nice plus! You can find them on Amazon.com.
