Scuderia Ferrari P200 headphones
These pit crew-inspired on-ear headphones are loud in more ways than one
- Solid build quality
- Strong bass
- Relatively heavy
- Ear-pad leather could be nicer
These Ferrari-licenced headphones are big, bulky, and pay tribute to the brand's Formula 1 pit crews' cans. They're a bit big for walking down the street with, and a bit heavy to wear for long periods. They're generally well-made though, and their bass-heavy sound will please electronica junkies.
Price$ 349.00 (AUD)
Ferrari isn’t necessarily a brand you’d associate with headphones. Although the sportscar manufacturer keeps a range of accessories like jackets and watches on its books, it makes sense to cut into the fan market with some everyday products.
Logic3 makes a heap of accessories — iPhone and iPad cases, docks and speakers, and add-ons for all the major portable and home game consoles. They’re not the first company we would have picked for a high-end Ferrari partnership, but the P200 shows they’re able to deliver a premium pair of headphones.
Scuderia Ferrari P200 headphones: Design and build quality
The Ferrari P200 headphones are, on first impressions, show-stopping in their design. Hints of carbon fibre weave, shiny chrome, and soft leather surround the classic glossy Ferarri red on ear-cups and headband. A Scuderia Ferrari logo, resplendent in Modena Yellow, can be found on either side of the P200’s ear-cups.
The headband is simple enough — foam padding, a simple leather wrap, and two telescoping sliders to accomodate larger heads. It does a good job of distributing the headphones’ heavy 380g weight, which is tiring after a while wearing them.
The P200 headphones have a single 2.5mm headphone jack on the bottom of the left ear-cup, and the bundled carbon fibre-wrapped carry case includes three separate headphone cables — one with an Apple-compatible remote, one with an Android-compatible remote, and one without a remote at all. The cables are covered in fabric and are strong and and well-constructed. Airline and hi-fi plug adapters are also included.
The ear-pads of the Ferrari P200 headphones are soft, but the faux-leather they’re wrapped in is a little plasticky and sticky. We also heard the leather or foam creak a little when we moved around — this is presumably something that will go away with time as the headphones loosen up, but it was distracting during our listening.
Scuderia Ferrari P200 headphones: Sound quality and performance
The Ferrari by Logic3 P200 headphones are expensive at $349 — that’s the cost of the little black prancing horse on each ear-cup. They have sound quality that should please casual listeners, but you can get better audio for the same price by shopping around.
The P200 headphones’ most obvious trait is their strong bass. Electronic dance music listeners and heavy rock aficionados will be well served by the P200’s low frequency power — deep and punchy bass that is tight and impressively loud.
Treble is less forthright — it’s a little less obvious than the headphones’ bass, and doesn’t have the same warmth and richness as more audiophile-focused headphones of comparable price like the B&W P3.
Mid-range is reasonable, but it’s not especially detailed. If you’re listening to compressed music files from your iPhone, or streaming audio from a source like YouTube or Rdio or Spotify, these headphones will do an acceptably good job. They’re not designed for listening to a high quality lossless audio track through high quality equipment, though.
The Ferrari P200 headphones can reach impressively loud volumes without audible amounts of distortion, even when strong bass is introduced. This makes them a good choice for bass-lovers who enjoy listening to their music up loud — it’s not a practice we’d encourage, but if it’s what you want the P200 will serve you well.
The P200 headphones don’t have any active noise cancellation, although they do a reasonably good job of keeping outside noise down thanks to their solid construction and full over-the-ear design.
One small feature we do like is the large and easy-to-use remote controls for Android and Apple devices. The buttons are easy to press and have a reassuring ‘click’ to them.
Scuderia Ferrari P200 headphones: Conclusion
These Ferrari-branded headphones certainly look racy — if looking like Stefano Domenicali is your thing, this is the headset for you.
They’re not the best-sounding headphones for their price, but they’ll be more than enough for casual music listeners — especially if you like your bass loud and strong.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.
I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.
I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!
For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
