Drown Tactile Earphones – How good are the crowdfunding-in-ears?

In August 2018, the young Scottish company Drown launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. The campaign was to be financed with headphones with the simple name “Tactile Earphones”, which were to offer particularly high reproduction quality through a combination of classic sound reproduction and vibration generation in the auricle.

The financing of the Tactile Earphones was also a direct success: Drown was able to collect almost 38,000 Euros and start production. In June 2020, the Backer finally received their headphones, and in the meantime they are available for all other customers for a price of 155 pounds.

We will take a close look at the newcomers in the following test and explain what new approaches Drown is taking and how good the final result has been.

Scope of delivery

The Drown Tactile Earphones come in a small, colourful printed cardboard box with magnetic closure. Inside the box are, besides the headphones themselves, four different pairs of attachments, the two meter long connection cable, the pluggable microphone and a protective cover that can hold the most necessary accessories.
