Promac has been around since Diosdado Macapagal was still the President of the Philippines (talk about history). Ever since then they have providing budget friendly products with uncompromised quality. Now they reemerge with a set of inexpensive earphones that doesnâ€™t look or sound cheap. One of the three earphones on their line is the Promac PRO One (the other two are PRO2 and PRO3) which weâ€™ll discuss later after the jump.
The Promac PRO One’s build and design doesnâ€™t disappoint as it promise a comfortable fit with its oval-shape, angled driver and three pairs of silicon buds that perfectly snugs in your ear canal for better listening experience and lesser ambient noise.
I canâ€™t say anything about the fit of these pair of phones. I donâ€™t find myself adjusting and rearranging the earphone on my ears every now and then unlike with other earphones that Iâ€™ve used before. This earphone also features a 1.25m flat cable that is less likely to tangle. Here’s the specs of the Promac PRO One.
Driver Type: Dynamic
Driver Size: 10mm
Sensitivity: 18 â€“ 20,000Hz
Frequency Response: 116Â±3db at 1KHz
In terms of the sound quality, the Promac PRO One will definitely provide your basic aural needs. Though advertised to pay extra attention to bass, the mids and highs were not at all compromised. Cymbals and chimes are sparkly with only a trace of hiss. Guitar and Piano sounds are well reproduced. The vocals (as well as the back-up vocals) are clear but tend to be sibilant at higher volume. On the bass end, though good, is a bit short on thump especially on house and trance tracks. But the overall listening experience of the Promac PRO One, is very satisfactory and something that I rarely get out of a Php499 earphone.
Besides providing an above average sound quality for its price, I personally like the Promac PRO One because of its design and how it perfectly fit my ears. Other earphone’s form factor is either too bulky that it hurts when I lean on it when Iâ€™m laying down or too loose that it falls off almost every time when Iâ€™m on the move. The comfy fit also ensures that most external noises are blocked and sound leaks are lesser which is good for everyday use.
The only problem that I have with it is that the sound is too soft even when the volume is at its max. But then again, for a Php499 earphone, I canâ€™t ask for more.The Promac PRO One is available in most AstroPlus/AstroVision outlets. As we always advise, test before you buy.
