Summary

I have really come to admire these headphones. I kind of bought them on a whim one day while perusing Wal-Mart. I had intended to purchase a pair of Bluetooth headphones for use at the gym, but it wasn’t really on my radar at the time.

I was actually shopping for something else and made my typical rounds in the electronics department. I don’t think it’s possible to just pass by electronics without taking a look, right? In all my 29 years, I don’t think it’s happened once, lol.

So I saw these babies sitting there on the shelf and they were calling my name. Got ’em home, unwrapped the box and fired ’em up. I was thoroughly impressed. The build quality is solid, and they feel just heavy enough to put your mind at ease. They really are pretty rugged.

Pros

  • Comfortable. I don’t really have to take them off at all.
  • Features. I’m digging the volume control and play/pause button on the right ear-cup.
  • No batteries required. Just charge it up via USB.
  • Charge holds for a long time. I was extremely impressed with this. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to use a product for such a long time without having to charge it.
  • They have an impressively long range. I can walk about 40-50 feet away from my phone without them cutting out. Anything more than that and they will cut out.
  • Of course them being wireless is a huge plus. I can’t think of anything more convenient as far as headphones go.
  • Lightweight and durable. I’ve slept with these on more times than I can count and they’re still going strong.
  • Good for taking calls. No one seemed to have an issue hearing me loud and clear. So much better than talking into the phone.
  • Hard hitting bass. Love the fact that it doesn’t feel bloated or cheap. It simply does the job and sounds tight and clean. Definitely for bass heads.

Cons

  • Every once in awhile they will randomly cut out, prompting me to have to reboot my phone. Not a huge deal but something to keep in mind.

Video Review

Amp/DAC requirements.

None.

Who these headphones benefit?

  • Perfect for the gym. They stay on your head and don’t move.
  • Hip-Hop/Rap
  • Classical
  • Rock
  • Blues

Thoughts from Stu’s notepad

  • To turn them off, hold the circular button until you hear it power down. You will know the sound. The same goes for powering it up.
  • Sometimes when powering up and playing a song, it will skip and cut out for a few seconds while trying to sync. Not a huge deal but can be irritating at times depending on your mood. 😛
  • They do not fold and do not come with a carrying case.
  • Sound isolation is fairly decent. It does block the majority of sound out, but you will be able to hear a relatively loud sound or conversation.
  • Sometimes if you press the circular play pause button, some random thing will start playing from your music library. The play/pause/scroll doesn’t really work with Youtube, but does work well with Soundcloud and Deezer.
  • In the summer I had longer hair and the ear-cups did get rather sweaty in the gym. When I cut my hair I didn’t really have a problem with them, even though I still expected them to get wet because the intensity level was the same and it was still hot.
  • To scroll through songs, hold down the plus or minus button. WOOP WOOP!!

Consensus/Conclusion

Convenient, portable, durable, and easy to use. Good sound quality. Will cut out from time to time. Good range and battery life.

Final Word

If you need a portable solution to use with your phone, I would highly recommend them. No the sound isn’t perfect, but by golly it’s good enough for what you’re getting. Why do people expect audiophile quality out of a $50 bluetooth set? These were made for the gym. And then do a heck of a job. You’re darned tootin’!

SEE THEM FOR YOURSELF ON AMAZON!!
