They come in a very neat box well presented and are of a real high build quality unlike some other previous bluetooth headphones i’ve had from amazon that broke/were of bad quality. Fresh out the box it first appears they are quite small in size which is good you don’t want a long pointless wire. They have 2 magnets each side which clips them together for tidiness. They also come with a little protectable black bag to carry them in which is cool. They are so easy to set up just old the power button as they came already charged up and after they turn on keep holding the button until it flashes red and then it is in pairing mode and you just then search on your phone and press connect it takes 2 seconds. They fit in my ear perfectly but for others they come with spare ear buds in different sizes and have a nice rubber piece that slots into your ear to keep it in. The sound quality is perfect and a lot louder than others. The controls have a built in mic for calls and buttons for volume. Very impressed with this product and a bargain for its price 5 star.
Like that the volume control is easily accessible. Only one little quibble about design, and hence the 4/5 stars — the blue flashing light to indicate it’s on. At night, i like to listen to podcasts or music and the flashing light in the dark can be quite annoying. Update: bought this in july. Refused to pair with my mobile. Tried doing same with another mobile but no joy.
Great sound quality, excellent range, incredibly comfortable. Earbuds have a tendency to hurt after wearing for a while, but with the smallest ear buds and hooks, this pair is extremely comfortable even after a couple hours of continuous wearing. I left my phone plugged into the wall charger in my office and was able to go to the next room without interruption. My husband and i have been doing a lot of reno on the house. I was constantly getting earphone cable caught on stuff as i was working and listening to pod casts. That problem is entirely solved. Also great for taking the dog for a walk. The ear buds stay in place better than any pair i’ve tried before. Here are the specifications for the TaoTronics tooth Earphones:

I bought these for my student daughter. She had to look up on the internet to find out how to work them, but once she had done that she found them quick to charge and they hold their charge well. She uses them running, but it is important to get the right fit otherwise they can make the ear sore, particularly if they are used during activities. The product comes with different tips, and so is slightly adjustable, but different sizes can be purchased, and she had the wrong size. Customer services were very helpful in supplying free replacements, and now they fit perfectly.
Just one word; wowi have various very high end audio equipment and this is the the first time in years and years that i thought i will give some cheap equipment a go. I have various high end in earphones so can compare these very favourably to them. One i first tried this i was not impressed and thought they were average, however for the £15 i paid i thought they were good value. They sounded very metallic, high tone at first. After a few days use these sound very different. The sound is still bright and loud and but has warmed up bringing out the bass and details. Not a wide soundstage like high end stuff but very good sound and bass. Battery life is excellent as quoted, like the flat interconnecting cable and relatively quick charge. Yes they feel cheap but sound very good.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Good pair of Earphones
- Fantastic headphones at a bargain price!
- Super crisp, amazing, bassey, amazing headphones. Would recommend these 110% from a picky buyer!
Nice deep and round sound – not tinny at all which reduces ear fatigue. Probably the best sound i’ve had from several budget bluetooth headphones in the £15-30 range. The chord is slightly annoying when running as the bounce generates into the earphones (like a pounding), but during music playback it becomes relatively unnoticable. However, all bluetooth headphones of this ilk do this, so the only way you’d truly eliminate this is chordless. There are 3 different size buds and ear pieces to use in order to fit your ears. They’re relatively comfortable but i have very small ears so finding the right balance between bud and the in-ear piece to esnure they don’t fall out is a bit of trial and error. Battery is pretty good – usually around 5-6hrs playback and charge time is around an hour. I’d had mine for a year when they picked up some weird feedback whilst running which caused the left earphone to blow. I emailed sunvalleytek-uk and they immediately sent out a new pair within a few days first class customer service from this point of view from pearl.
It’s funny how i didn’t imagine my life needed bluetooth headphones until i had bluetooth headphones. Not having the cable makes using them with mobile devices so much easier. Really easy to pair and excellent sound quality. Comes with different bud sizes and a little handy storage pouch. I’ve never charged them since i got them the battery seems to last ages. The magnetic clip is really handy but if you are new to bluetooth headphones it may take you a while to get used to the wire between buds sitting behind your neck and not in front. Not that it hugely matters but if you keep the cable behind your neck then this makes the magnets in the headphones far more effective which quickly turns it into a necklace so they don’t fall off when they are not in your ears. The little control buttons on the cable is great for turning on and off as well as adjusting volume and skipping tracks. I would totally recommend these.
Unfortunately, the first pair of earphones just randomly stopped working. However, the seller contacted me and offered to send me a new pair of the upgraded model earphones, which i received within a couple of days. The customer service is excellent and i applaud the seller for looking after me so well. With the first pair, i had noticed the bluetooth signal would be ‘patchy’ if the earphones needed to be charged so i charged the earphones, however, the problem persisted. I also found that if there was any bump, for example, if you were wearing the earphones with your phone in your pocket, the ‘signal’ would be quite jumpy. I wanted them to use while riding my motorbike but unfortunately, the ‘signal’ was not reliable enough. With the second pair, the bluetooth signal appears better and the sound is better quality. The volume controller seems to be a sturdier build as well so maybe that’s why the signal is better. I shall report back in a month to update if these earphones are better. I definitely recommend this seller.
I have waited to post this as i wanted to really try the product. Having been a loyal jaybirds headphones user it was a big step for em to move to a more economical pair. This was one fifth of the price of my jaybirds which failed within 12 months. It was so difficult organising the replacement i bought these instead. I am really pleased with them. Great sound and call quality. I use predominantly for calls on the move. The pairing process is simple and always works. My jaybirds would not connect on many occasions. The wings are of a good shape for an easy fit with several sizes to choose from.
Let’s begin at the end, in case you haven’t got the time to read the full review : these are fantastic. There’s a bewildering amount of choice when it comes to bluetooth earbuds and i won’t deny i almost fell into the trap of paying much more money for a pair from a more established brand. I’m glad i didn’t, because these are equal (and in some areas superior) to the quality and performance of comparable items costing more than three times the amount i paid for these. The item is neatly and smartly packaged. The unit itself has a high-quality finish and the build quality is superb, with robust magnetic plates on the outer surface of each bud (which connect neatly so they can be worn round your neck when not in use – super handy). The cord is an ideal length to be worn either at the front, or round the back of your neck; remaining tangle-free at all times. Sure, they protrude from your ears a little more than regular buds, but that’s to be expected, being self-contained. Fit in the ear can be tailored with the included bud covers and lobe hooks. These two components are separate which helps to get fit just right, and there are three sizes of each (small, medium, large). Getting the fit right is important not only for comfort, but also sound quality (see comments below).
Have been using this for a few months now. Connectivity is quite slick. I have connected this to several devices and have never had any issues. My phone connects automatically as soon as i turn my bluetooth on. Sound quality is very good for the money paid. I would not complain about that. It charges quite fast and holds charge for a longer period. I use for about an hour on alternate days. So i charge it once every 4-5 days.
They work well, very good sound quality at a very good price. One thing i would mention, the signal seems to break up when i`m in a built-up area, maybe this is because of all the other bluetooth devices all around me as i don`t get this problem when i`m out in the country. Having said that, however, it might be a problem with my phone and nothing to do with the tao tronics earphones. I needed to experiment with the 3 different size buds and the clip things to get a good fit in my ears, once i got that right all is perfect. Would certainly recommend them to any buyers.
Completed my review of these today, and one thing i must say. The bass on these is absolutely superb, and loud too. No distortions, top quality sound, both on bass and treble. Excellent mic quality for calls etc. Did a noise test with lots of cars going by at speed, on a windy day. . Could just about hear the cars (vehicles), but only just, so they did a good job and cutting out the ambient noise. I got 5 hrs 41 mins of play from a full charge, on full volume. Did a 15 minute quick charge and got 61 minutes of play. A little bit fiddly to put them in the ear if you’re using the ear hooks, but once they are in they fit fine.
At first thought they were a bit big, then when after listening to music through these fantastic earphones realised they need to be a little bit on the big side for the bass the treble and the clarity of the sound with no distortion on high volume. Please do try the 3 different size ear pieces to get the most comfortable fit for each ear. Comes with a little bag for storage in your pocket or just put the two ends together and the magnets will hold together around your neck.
If you’re wondering whether or not to buy these, they’re definitely worth it. I have several sets of “celebrity headphones” that i have spent a fortune on (because i’m an idiot) and these have blown me away with the sound quality. I was so fed up with my charger port being in the same place as where my headphones go, so i had to be without music while i was charging my phone so i saw these and thought i’d give them a go. They fit really comfortably in my ears (even though designs like this usually hurt or irritate me), the music is really clear and crisp and they look really cute too. I wish i had got them sooner.
I can safely say for the sum of £17 of which these wireless earphones cost me they are an absolute steal. Off course they cannot compare with earphones hitting above £100 or so but for earphones below £100 these are outstanding. Very comfortable, strong 5-6 hour battery life, very secure within ears (i run a lot) and for the price a good level of bass output. If you need wireless bluetooth earphones look no further.
This is the 2nd tao tronics item i have bought in the past 12 months, and i have to say i’ve been really pleased with both. These earphones have a great sound quality, nice a comfortable in the ear and the charge lasts for a fair amount of use. I’ve so far got over 3 hours of usage on one charge, which i’m happy with. Very easy to skip tracks and increase volume using the buttons on the strap.
Edit2: i have recieved the new earphones and they work perfectly. What a great company to deal with, amazing. Edit: since i wrote this review the company have contacted me and offered me the next model up free of charge. I haven’t received them yet but can’t fault that level of service. Moved from 2 stars to 4 to reflect. Whatever happens i’ve still got some headphones that work and they’ve gone above and beyond to try and fix it. Great job taotronicsthese are easy enough to pair up to your phone, turn off and on but they cant seem to stay in my ears. I have tried every possibly combo of the supplied earpieces and the dangling controls (on the right) seem to keep catching on everything i wear which in turn makes the earpiece on the right very tight and eventually fall out. I tried them when in the gym too and had the same issue while squatting which was quite annoying. They work, and the sound quality is great but if you’re like me then you need to be sat still or else the cable will snag and they’ll come out.
I received these on the 15th of may and was pleasantly surprised by how good they are. With the correct size ear bud piece so it fits snuggly in your ear makes it possible for these headphones to (actually) produce low frequency sound aka bass. Also the ear hooks work a treat and keep them snug inside your ear (i use them daily when inline skating), the sound isolation initially was a little alarming, but you get use to it. The magnetic connection is kind of useful and the volume is. Well loudunfortunately as of today 13-6-2018 i now have a continuous ‘hiss’ coming from the left earbud, even when the headphones are turned off. I really hope this is just a manufacturing fault as for what these headphones are for the price i really do like them. But i will be returning them – ideally for a functioning pair. I’ll update this review as and when i get a new pair and if they continue to work. Update: 21-7-2018 saturday – seller sent me a replacement pair of headphones.
I bought these for my bf and he loves them. He wears them all around the house when he is bustling. He particularly likes to use them when he is faffing around in the kitchen (he is the cook and i am the ‘breadwinner’/lazy ass – talk about gender role reversals). They are great as he used to get his wired headphones caught on kitchen cupboard handles or main door handles and found the wires generally got in the way. These completely solve that problem. They are great for blocking out outside noises. The one issue is that sometimes in phone calls, other people say it sounds as though he is talking from the other side of a room with the phone on speaker, despite the fact that in reality he is actually holding the microphone of the headphones volume switch right up to his mouth. That’s the only reason for giving 4 stars not 5. I have this same pair of headphones and mine don’t seem to suffer that problem.
The delivery was quick and the package wasn’t damaged at all, plus there’s only the necessary and not hundreds of leaflets or useless boxes which is always appreciated. This actually my second pair of bluetooth earphones and they’ve already made me forget the first one. The earphones are actually very light and they fit very well – i personally don’t use the ear hooks and they still stay put. They were paired with my iphone 7 in seconds and ready to listen. I am by no means an audiophile, but the earphones have good audio output in my opinion. I haven’t tested the battery life but from the other reviews 5h appears to be accurate. The built-in remote allows you to skip tracks when listening to music, which is always great, as well as return calls etc. I even managed to prompt siri from it although i haven’t been able to reproduce the effect.The only downside would be that the buttons don’t have a really clicky feel, especially the middle one although this may be my unit.
