Sure those Apple Airpods are nice but my budget doesn’t stretch to that. So after many searches for cheap bluetooth headphones, my super cheap Rcool Twins TWS wireless earbuds arrived.
Sure those PowerBeats headphones Apple showed off might look the business but the reality is not everyone can afford the $199. I mean how is it possible that a set of headphones with a fraction of the technology an iPhone contains costs 1/3 the price? Granted a lot goes into speaker technology but still.
So today I’m looking at completely the other end of the spectrum of headphones with a price range that most mere mortals can afford, the SoundPeats Q12. Who knows if due to some dodgy translation it was supposed to be SoundBeats.
Still with an asking price of just £19.95/ $24.99 expectations shouldn’t be too high but then again my last inexpensive wireless set won me over.
With the recent rumours that Apple might be eliminating the audio jack on the next iPhone we may soon be looking for Bluetooth headphones to replace the standard ones that Apple supplies.
Now I have no issue with Apple’s earbuds other than I’ve never had a pair that managed to stay inside my lug holes for any extended period of time. In fact I often notice folks walking along nonchalantly sporting the famous white earbuds that appear to be glued to their ears without any issues and it has always caused me a pang of jealousy.
The Aftershokz Bluez 2S are a different type of headphones, headphones that will let you run or cycle whilst still being able to hear what’s going on around you. The Aftershockz are wireless but they don’t go in or over the ear.
They actually conduct the sound via your cheekbone which is really weird but the technology is really cool and also really works.
Music makes us work out harder and endure that work out longer so obviously your workout headphones are an important purchase.
Things considered in this roundup have been sound quality, Comfort and Fit, Durability, compatibility, Price and any extras all of which have been used to compile this list.
In this review we look at the San Francisco from Urbanista headphones and see if a set of £20 headphones can be any good and would they be ok as a potential replacement or alternative to the Apple Earbuds.
Its traditionaly another quiet spot in the year for Apple so the rumour mills have to crank even harder for stories. According to reports Apple is looking to make the next iPhone even slimmer by ditching the 3.5mm audio jack.
Once you go wireless with your headphones it’s incredibly hard to even contemplate going wired. Even if those headphones aren’t the best sounding, somewhat iffy battery life and bluetooth compression turns music into a mushy mess.
These SPBEAT9 Active Wrap Headphones kicking around on the stack social website for a tempting $24 plus shipping. It might seem like a no-brainer to get a set of wireless headphones given the price points but before you spend your money read on.
Updated. Avoid these at all costs. You can now purchase these for just $5 from AliExpress and since publishing TRNDLabs have removed the SPBEAT9 branding. In short they’ve purchased these cheap, written some copy, taken a few pictures and watched the cash roll in.
The time had come yet again to choose a new set of headphones. For some reason my house seems to be ergonomically designed to snag on my head phone cable at any given opportunity. The Wood look interesting especially given the eco-credentials at a pocket friendly price point. So can a set of headphones made from wood be any good?
Enough was enough. Those damn cables had caught or snagged on a door handle, car handbrake one to many times and that was it. I needed a set of Bluetooth wireless headphones. It turns out there really isn’t much out there in the way of choice or information when you google for iPhone Bluetooth headphones the results were pretty inconclusive.
The Apple supplied headphones can be described as mediocre at best and I’ve long been on the hunt for a decent set of headphones without a bank balancing crushing price. I use my headphones everyday for long periods of time that would pretty much be considered unhealthy, so I was overjoyed when I discovered the Denon AHC560R on sale. But once again like my last headphone purchase, disappointment promptly welcomed me when I opened up the box.
I’m not overly fussy or picky when it comes to technology but I do like to do a bit of research first, especially something that I use all the time. For example I wont purchase a cheap mouse or keyboard because “it’ll do” as that just stupid and headphones are no exception. Finding these Sony DR-EX300iP heaphones and checking out their 4 and 5 star review you’d think it’s a no brainer and for someone like me needing, no craving some better phones for iPhone I bought a set of these Sony DR-EX300iP with high hopes.
