TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones – Excellent product. Honestly never expected it to be this

Had these 24 hours so we’ll see what they are like in a month. First impressions are very good but i would point out that after searching for headphones on amazon for quite awhile i was offered these with a ‘special time limited offer of a £4 pound discount’ so only paid £14 which is a bargain. Build quality is very good and when connected to an iphone you can see the battery level on your phone screen. A bit fiddly to change for one device to another as it prefers the last one paired so you need to turn off bluetooth on the last device if it’s close by. Quality construction seems high, also the range of ear tips and wings is good but i would’ve liked to have seen some foam/memory foam ones as well. These fit in the ear well, but like all in earphones the quality of the sound depends enormously upon the seal. I have found the cable is very microphonic and i wonder if this is the reason they give you wingtips to stop the noise a bit. I prefer them without the wingtips but i may have to put them back on if they prove too loud when walking along. The actual control bit on the headphones it’s extremely small and light doesn’t drag at all , unfortunately there is a tiny little blue light flashing very brightly every few seconds which is a pain if you’re using them somewhere dark. You can always just put a small piece of tape over it.

I had a previous generation of these and was gutted when i lost them, but at the affordable price it wasn’t a huge deal breaker to buy another pair. The packaging is small, elegant, and mode of cardboard – massive props for not using plasticreally easy to pair with devices, works on my android phone and surface pro great. The battery life is better in my experience than my old pair (somewhere between 2-3 days of use, but that isn’t constant 8 hours a day)the sound quality is amazing, i can’t express that enough. From having expensive headphones in the past i was so surprised at how close these came in quality/ clarity for day to day listening at work. They block out external noise really well without you having to crank the volume over 9000 which just adds to the comfort. The comfort is improved from the last generation, they feel lighter in the ear which is a really hard thing to imagine i know. They come with 3 different size earbuds and i had no issue getting some to fit nicely. I really recommend these headphones, i have never found any this good at this price point.

These were my second pair of taotronics wireless earphones, my last ones were the magnetic version, until i lost them (because of their small size they easily slip out of one’s pocket unnoticed) and cried myself to sleep because they were expensive. Oh well, i decided they were so good that i’d replace them and they don’t fail to disappoint. Super handy to whip out and listen to music without the burden of wires. Also, they are generous with the number of different sized earphone (and in ear bit) covers so they fit my awkward ear canals (one is significantly smaller than the other), in a handy durable bag. The charge lasts a day for me, and i listen to music anytime i can. Also they can be very loud but allow no sound to escape so you can rock out discreetly. Just be wary about losing them (and the charging cable for that matter). Update: the charging cable port (the part that goes into the earphones) broke off in the earphone and subsequently broke up into little, unfixable pieces. Luckily however, my samsung charger fit it. I think the charging cable that i was supplied was faulty, but this isn’t an issue that is significant since it’s rare. Here are the specifications for the TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones:

Honestly never expected it to be this good. Nice sound quality with clear base and lows. If you are still using the headphone comes with your phone, this is the one to replace with. Comes with several adjustment pieces to accommodate different ear sizes and shape. Cables are rubbery and flat, no more tangling. Nice small pouch is included as well. Extra 18 months warranty for piece of mind, recommended.

Edit – i initially had problems with my headphones but support kindly sent me a replacement which i am very happy with. I have been using them continuously for about a week now and definitely recommend them. Comfort: they are very comfortable, one of the most comfortable headphones i have every used. They are light weight, have the angled ear piece and have several earbuds/hooks to get a perfect fit. I wear them for hours and often forget they are in. When not in use the magnetic heads make it a secure loop so they don’t fall off. Ease of use: they are very simple to setup and get paired with bluetooth devices. I have it paired with my android phone and my laptop and it was very simple to do. The controls worked well with android and there is a 3rd party app you can get for pc to enable it to control spotify. Sound: after problems with the initial pair the new set sounds quality is very good.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Quality Bluetooth Phones For The Price
  • Genuinely surprised by the quality of sound and build. Recommended.
  • Nice features, excellent value, great customer service.

Bought these for when i am training. I wanted something with a good battery life and good solid connection. These do exactly what i want them to do. Connection to my galaxy s8 is done in about 5 seconds and so far i have not had a single drop out at all. Perfect for the gym because i can put the band behind my head so it won’t get in the way. They are sweatproof and have noise cancelling technology which is perfect for the gym environment when you just want to concentrate on your music and training. Battery life seems great too and i have only charged them twice since having them and i’ve used them every other day for maybe 2 hours a day. Sound quality is perfect and i have no complaints at all. No distortion even at high levels and with good old bass heavy music. The headphones also have built in magnets so you can click them together round your neck when you are not using them.

Unlike many reviewers, i did not receive this as a free sample. I parted with my own hard earned cash, and. . I couldn’t be more pleased. I was stunned at both the build quality and the clarity of the sound produced by this diminutive little device. It has a matte finish and has understated looks. Pairing the speaker to my phone was simple and the quality of the link is stable and is free from any audible interference. There is a single large multi function button (mfb) on top of the speaker controlling power, volume, play/ pause, pairing and call answer (apparently it offers headset functionality so handy for the home office or conference calls – though i have yet to try this). 5mm jack in the back to allow the connection of non bluetooth devices. 5mm cable is also included in the box. I would compare the quality of the sound reproduced to that of bose speakers i’ve encountered for triple the price.

Edit:after speaking with the sellers they suggested i try a different model for running and provide my review, link is below. I can say that these are a much better fit for running. I did a 8k run and a few shorter ones recently and these havn’t budged at all. My review for the original headphones is the same but increased by 2 star for excellent customer service and since i won’t use these for running. General use is perfectly fine.

Tl;dr+ budget pricing without skimping out+ great sound quality+ clean, compact, unobtrusive form+ stays in ears with ear clips+ remote to control music+ good microphone quality to answer calls+ magnetic feature means you can’t lose them around your neck—i am by no means an audiophile but i can provide an honest review as an average consumer (as i presume most of you are). As we move into a wireless technological age with more companies removing earphone jacks on phones, i decided to take the leap and go wireless too. These wireless earphones are very good value for money, providing excellent sound quality from a condense, compact unit (as opposed to other cheap wireless earphones which have big bulky earbuds to house the battery). The plastic ear clips hold the earphones solidly in place without fuss, and the inclusion of a microphone/remote means i can change volume, switch songs, and answer phone calls without issue – the microphone quality itself is very good and i have had no reports from peers phoning me about the quality. Very easy to connect to phones and other devices, and the battery life is pretty decent too – the battery gauge that displays on the phone is very helpful to see how much charge is left. I am particularly fond of the magnetic feature that links the two earbuds together so that i am never worried about losing them around my neck. Overall i am very happy with my purchase and am finding myself constantly listening to my music now thanks to these earphones.

Being a keen long distance runner, i require headphones with a specific requirement, practicality. I have ceased using cabled headphones instead preferring the practicality wireless headphones provide. I also find many of the ear pod designs simply fallout even with moderate exercise. These in ear design coupled with the ear clip make for the headphones staying in place even during vigorous exercise. The soft silicone material allows you to wear these comfortably all day. The lightweight of the earphones means you hardly notice you are wearing them. Each earphone has a magnet allowing you sling them around your neck when not in use for keep safe, however the magnets are not really strong enough to always achieve this. Comes with several different sized ear tips / ear clips as well as a handy storage pouch. Charging takes around 2 hours giving around 7. 5 hours of play time and charged via a standard usb cable (supplied), on ios the devices battery status can be monitored.
