Status OB-1 review

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

Status Audio markets itself a little like the OnePlus of the headphone world. It sells its headphones directly, avoiding the pound pile-on caused when dealers and middle-men start getting involved.

Its OB-1s are studio-style open-backed headphones that look, at a glance, like something Sennheiser might charge £150/$225 or more for.

Comfort and fit are spot-on. However, while there’s reasonable scale to the sound, it’s unfocused and lacking in dynamics. They aren’t a reason to give up using your Sennheiser Momentum 2.0s just yet.

Build

The Status OB-1s are full-size, over-ear headphones and siblings of the closed-back Status CB-1s.

While designs like these are implicitly for home use, more people may be happy wearing their look out on the street than the CB-1s because they don’t stick quite as much. They look, well, normal.
