I have never owned a pair of wireless headphones, I just don’t use them that often. My husband on the other hand loves them and has had several pairs of them over the years. I was asked to review these noise canceling bluetooth headphones and let’s just say my interest was piqued once I seen the picture of them. They are unlike any other bluetooth headphones that I have ever been around. They are just earbuds. How can these work? They claim to be noise canceling, sweatproof and much more. I was skeptical to say the least.
Upon arrival, I was impressed with how they were packaged. Nice outer box that houses the headphones/charging unit, the charging cord and extra earbud covers. All of it nice and orderly, just like I like it. I was surprised by how small they are. I’m not usually a fan of the earbuds that have the squishy piece that has to fit down in your ear, I just don’t like how they feel in my ears. I guess this is where the noise canceling part comes in lol, because once they are in everything is muffled.
I was a little frustrated though because the package does not come with any type of instructions. No way of knowing how to use it I just started pushing buttons and messing around with it. I had the hardest time getting it to connect to my bluetooth on my Google Pixel. It was very frustrating! Once I did get it connected only one of the headphones worked. What the hell!? I was so confused! I finally got on Amazon to read other reviews, surely I was not the only one that was having this many issues. I figured at this point I would have to write a bad review because I was so irritated.
Well, low and behold, there were instructions on the product page on Amazon. So first of all, that is ridiculous, add a damn instruction booklet to your product. Save your consumer a little bit of hassle please! Even when I found the instructions on Amazon, I still could not get them to work. At this point I was ready to throw the entire thing across the room. So not to ruin the product, I gave myself a time out and came back to it later.
I finally got it to work and both are functioning correctly and have good sound quality. I still can’t figure out why it pauses when I touch the earbud, because there is no instruction on how to use it while it is functioning. According to Amazon it has the ability to use only one earbud at a time, which to me is weird. If I am going to listen to music or workout I will be using both earbuds.
Overall this is a strange product, not sure how to use it but if you finally get it to work then it works well. The sound is great and when it actually continually plays without pausing it is nice to use. I haven’t tried them while working out yet, but my concern with that is them falling out while running. I don’t like that you have to shove them in your ears so far for them to be in tightly but some people like them this way (my husband for example). I like the hard plastic ones and nothing will sway me from those! I want to see some bluetooth headphones with the hard plastic earbuds! Who’s with me!? 🙂 They are kind of pricey and are super confusing to use. I’m not sure if I would recommend them or not, the concept is great but not knowing how to use them is a big pain in the butt.
If you want to check them out they are available on AMAZON.
