Christopher Brian Bridges, also known as Ludacris is a famous rapper and actor, but I guess you already know that. He is not the only musician who has his own line of headphones and earphones. The interesting part in testing the SL150BW model is to find out whether Ludacris’s product is better than other audio products released by famous rappers.
As you probably figured out already, I am a rap and hip-hop fan. It goes without saying that I expect a rapper to create the best headphones for listening to rap. So far, the headphones made by singers were more fitted for fashion-conscious people. The sound quality was always on the second place.
Ludacris SL150BW High-Definition On-Ear Headphones definitely draw attention through their design. There is no argue about that. Robust, shiny and with rounded corners, these headphones have a cutting edge looks. They come in white and black, which are the 2 non-colors that can be worn with any outfit.
The sound of Ludacris SL150BW is definitely superior. The sound is balanced and the bass beats are more than I expected. I guess this model has managed to make sound quality and design coexist in a well-adjusted manner. The sounds are very precise, mostly thanks to the dynamic driver type.
As iPods, iPads, iPhones and other multimedia devices are always present in our lives, the fact that Ludacris SL150BW is compatible with most of them is a big plus. Soul supplies different types of cables and adaptors in this package. So, you can pretty much connect them to any device.
The weight of this product guarantees a high level of portability and comfort. They weight only 245 grams. It takes very little time to get used with a weight like this on your head.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the SOUL by Ludacris SL150BW High-Definition On-Ear Headphones (White/Black)
Eye-catching design – Ludacris SL150BW have a modern design. Although they have a robust construction, they are not too large or too heavy. They are available in 2 colors, namely white and black.
Advanced Breathable Headband Pad and Ear Cups – I sometimes keep my headphones on even if I am not listening to something because of various reasons. My ears never sweat of become uncomfortably warm.
Balanced sound quality – This is an audio tool that provides superior sound. The sound is not distorted at all. The instruments are balanced and very clear.
Noise reduction feature – The sleek closed design is also useful for noise cancellation. This double function does a decent job at making these headphones comfortable, stylish and at ensuring a minimum of sound leakage.
The bass overpowers the rest of the instruments – When listening to other music genres than rap or hip-hop or other types of music based on bass sounds, the bass enhancement can become a little annoying.
The SOUL by Ludacris SL150BW High-Definition On-Ear Headphones are better than I thought they would be. I am a casual music listener and for my needs I must admit this pair of headphones is great. Ludacris might be the first rapper to really provide a superior sound rather than just a fashionable design.
