Summary

The Armaggeddon Molotov-5 is a great on-ear headphone with great value. Absolutely fantastic sound quality for the price and with great comfort levels, and comes packaged with a decently-built headphone shell.

Armaggeddon had been making many different kinds of headphones in the past. I can personally say that throughout the years I’ve been reviewing their products, they’ve improved a lot. However, the Armaggeddon Molotov-5 is their best portable on-ear headphone to this date.

Let’s start off with the packaging, as usual. The packaging is very different from other types of packaging, but quite difficult to get to. At least with such packaging style, the Molotov-5 can give a size estimate of the ear cups. In case you missed out on our triple unboxing of Armaggeddon products sent to us, you can check it out below.

The Molotov-5 has a surprisingly nice build quality too. Firstly, the cable is fully braided, and it has nice length to it. Also, check it out right here – a right angle 3.5mm jack! Surely this is a personal preference, but for me, I personally prefer the angled jack.

The cable build quality continues throughout the included audio splitter too. Just in case you’re wondering what’s this for, the Molotov-5 has a combo jack. This combo jack brings both input and output audio into the same jack, which doesn’t work for all devices. A great example of the usage of combo jacks are laptops, especially when contrasting ultra-slim devices with conventional ones. You can save some space by combining both audio and microphone jacks into a single combo jack, but there will be some compatibility issues.

Other than that, the packaging doesn’t contain any paperwork – just the “box” alone, a plastic shell, and the audio splitter. That said, I really like how the packaging is laid out. It’s simple and most importantly, just plain straight forward. Print all the necessary information on the packaging itself where people can read before purchasing while saving cost.
