Creative Hitz MA2600 review





After purchasing a music player, smartphone or tablet many users think of buying new headphones to replace original ones. Indeed some people just want a better sound quality and user experience, others search for a replacement of already broken ones. We have been able to take a look at Hitz MA2600 headphones from Creative.

First impression always starts from the process of unpackaging the box. Hitz MA2600 looks great, at first sight one can tell that these headphones are very well made. The design is bright and modern. These on ear type headphones have professionally-tuned 40mm neodymium drivers that must deliver excellent sound. There is also a microphone, so Hitz MA2600 can be used to make calls as well. Two options for color - black and white. Official web page positions Hitz MA2600 as a premium headset for music and calls. We are sure it is also good for movies and games.
