August Over Ear Bluetooth Wireless Headphones – EP650 : Perfect replacement for troublesome Sonixx X touch and excellent value for money

This the best headphone, i have ever purchased at this price range. Build quality: i have purchased the black headphone with some touch of chrome, which increase it physical aesthetic. The padding is soft and very comfortable to the ears, and it produces some of the most satisfying sound when adjusting. While most part is the product are plastics it does not feel cheap, as for it durability only time will tell i have been using this product for 24 hours. Battery: i have charged the headphone for about 2h30 when i unboxed it, after 5 hours of continuous usage. It is showing 90% on my iphone. So far so good, i hope it last for about 72 hours before i charge it. Movie/youtube watching: i have not seen any out sync when watching movie on my laptop. However, i did notice on one particular video on youtube it was out of sync. I think, it was just youtube or my internet dropped out for a bit.

An excellent set of headphones for every day use, i find the sound to be clear and the bass to be plenty satisfying. The headphones connect quickly and easily to my phone (samsung galaxy s7), as well as the tv adaptor august mr260 – 2-in-1 bluetooth stereo audio transmitter / receiver – dual mode audio sender and receivers – bluetooth enable your audio devices i bought so that i could play games in the early hours of the morning without waking my wifemy only issue with this product is that the ear-cups have become somewhat loose, so that they can rotate several degrees. This means that if i look down or up sharply whilst wearing them the headband will slide forwards or backwards, which is quite annoying. I have removed the cups (under august’s instruction) to tighten the screw underneath but this did not help. Ultimately, i would say that these are an excellent set of bluetooth headphones with only a minor issue preventing me from giving it that beloved 5-star rating.

First time i’m ever writing any sort of review, this is going to be slightly simplified, but based on 3 years of experience with the amazing august ep650. The build quality in these is solid given the price in mind, despite being plastic they feel well made. However, the build quality is also the only thing from not giving the full 5 stars. I’ve bought this pair twice, and both times after exactly 18 months of use the headband snapped from the middle. Given the fact these only have a 1 year warranty, it’s a bit annoying. If the headband had some metal in between the plastic casing and the thick padding, it would be perfect. The sound quality in these cans is absolutely amazing, no matter what device you use. I can’t completely say how they sound flat, as i always have my equalizers adjusted for my liking, which is bass emphasized. These headphones are perfect for that. I’m currently on an iphone se, but a hint for all android users, download rocket player from the play store, put the eq on dance and/or up the bass, you can get these bounce in your ears, which is especially enjoyable when you’re drunk and cant blast music from the speakers.

When it comes to sound i’m a self-confessed snob who tends to spend a lot on getting good sound. So this purchase was very much at odds with what i normally buy. I wanted phones for my ipod when i’m out and about. I have been using bose in-ear phones that look great and are so comfortable they can be worn all day without even ‘feeling’ them. However they have one major problem – no bass. I have pair of b&w bluetooth phones but they’re too expensive for out and about and as on-ear phones they get uncomfortable after a while. So i bought these cheapy august phones after a bit of research. On the downside the sound is not wonderful. They have the bass i wanted but it is a bit over-powerful and boomy. This rather swamps the treble and mid-range.

I don’t rush into buying things, especially when it comes to electronics. I looked into numerous bluetooth headphones for weeks before finally making the decision to purchase these and i am so glad that i did. First off the build quality for the price point is fantastic in my opinion. I bought the black variant which i think looks very classy and the design is not as in-your-face as other cheaper headphones. The cups fit over my whole ear and the padding on the cups and at the top is very soft and comfortable. The extensions come out with a satisfying click and won’t come out unless you want them to. Which i know can even be an issue on some very expensive models. The controls on the side all work great. Play/pause/volume up/volume down/forward/back.

They are very comfortable and plush. They completely cover the ears so they don’t feel like they are getting squashed. There is no creaky noise from the frame unlike the futuresoundlab 360 (which creak like hell). It connected well to my google pixel and nexus 7 tablet and works really well. I’m not an audiophile but i’m happy with the sound quality. The controls are reasonably easy to use, the main power on/off button has a dimple so it’s easy to feel but the other buttons are hard to find on their own because they have no way to tell. I usually find the desired button by feeling for the power on/off dimple and then using that as a point of reference. A minor annoyance but nothing i have to use often. Battery seems to last several hours although i often charge it way before it runs out.

I have just received these august ep650s, using amazon prime delivery was incredibly fast, i ordered them on friday evening and received them on saturday morning. Initially i was a little bit disappointed with the packaging, as i had previously had a pair of sonixx x touch headphones and their packaging was awesome. As mentioned above i had a pair of sonixx x touch headphones. Although they were excellent value for money and sounded great, i unfortunately had to return them several times due to them breaking both electrically and physically (headband adjuster). I finally got fed up with having to wait replacements to arrive and i had seen several reviews on these august ep650s. Once i had unpacked and charged them up, i tried them on for size. Personally these headphones not only fit better than the sonixx but any other headphones that i have previously tried. I know that everyone has a different size or shaped head but these do it for me. I have experienced absolutely no discomfort around my ears despite using them for hours on end. All of this would be for nothing if the sound quality was below par, well that’s not a problem with the august ep650s.

These headphones have been a pleasure to use. One of the best purchases i have made to date on amazon. Also, the supplier has been more than helpful in a situation where a small problem occurred. I genuinely can’t find a single fault with this product. Please do continue to read my review after the first week of owning the headphones. Where do i start with these headphones. I researched for days about the best budget bluetooth headphones looked at thousands of reviews and videos and these headphones came up every time. Now having had them a week i can understand why. These are possibly the most comfortable set of headphones i have ever worn the cups are so soft and fit perfectly.

    Seeing all the positive reviews for these headphones convinced me to buy. They were bought as a present for my son, who currently uses the sumvision psyc wave zx wireless bluetooth headphones and wanted an upgrade, as the bluetooth standard for those headphones is 4. 0 and so isn’t as good as the newer 4. 2, which supposedly has much lower latency and he has to use them wired to watch videos. The august headphones did have lower latency (although still not quite low enough for lip-sync), but the sound quality was terrible; mid-to-bass heavy with little clarity and a very muddy sound, making them very unpleasant to listen to, certainly when compared to the now much cheaper sumvision headphones. I use much more expensive beyerdynamic 880 pros and the sumvision are actually comparable to them – but the august headphones don’t come near. I’m hoping sumvision will upgrade their bluetooth chips.

        For £40 these are the best bluetooth headphones you an buy imo. I bought a pair for my wife who loves them, and when a cheaper pair i bought for myself broke, i joined her and got the white ones which look great.

    Nice shape and very easy to use. Compatible with my sony xperia z5. The only thing it annoyed me was the little bit loud the low battery warning when in use. I recommend this to everyone.

      Overall headphones are good, good bass and clear sound. However, they produce a hissing noise in the background when music gets quite or if the volume is on low. This gets drowned out by background noise if you’re outside, but it’s very noticeable indoors when the room is quite. Turning the volume up over half-way drowns out the hissing, but by doing this it becomes a little inconvenient, as they become loud enough to be heard by other people if the room is fairly quiet (such as my university library study areas). But good quality build/material for the price, doesn’t feel like the headphones would snap in the middle easily. Comfortable head padding and ear padding, good to wear for a couple of hours at a time, and then my ears become red due to the pressure on my ears (a little heavy for me i guess?). Connection by bluetooth is easy, the august audio app allowed me to turn off the blinking blue light which is useful. The foldable feature allows it to fit in my coat pocket. Battery lasts a long time, charged it once and it’s lasted over 3 days. Nice stylish look for the white colour.

      Is too early to give a good rate for quality and sounds, i am still using and testing. Please allow me a few more times so that can give a good rate to it. The overall rate so far is 4 stars by listening to it and i have not yet connected using bluetooth and its app.
