For the “Best Inexpensive Wireless Headphones” category, we set a conditional line at 2,000 rubles, and JBL managed to pass under it with almost his stomach in. However, for this money, we really get “gags” suitable for frequent use, which provide decent autonomy and at the same time sound quite good. Not bad, of course, for this format: nevertheless, at high volume, the emitters are already clearly overloaded here.
But all the pluses of the “plugs” are also in place: a sufficient degree of sound insulation, minimum dimensions and weight. The remote control and battery hang low enough not to strain your ears with their weight. “Apple” devices are able to show the battery charge when connected. Actually, it was the rejection of the traditional “jack” on. The iPhone that made wireless headphones and headsets noticeably more popular.
There is a microphone in this “baby” weighing 16 grams, and a fairly good one – the T110BT can be safely used with a phone as a headset, conversations have little effect on the battery charge, and speech intelligibility is more than sufficient.
Jam Audio Been There
The American company Jam Audio has been specializing in wireless audio equipment since. Its inception – even their turntables for vinyl are familiar with the “blue tooth”. As for the headphones, their line of overhead “ears” looks and is called funny – from the “initial” Already There to the top Out There through the “middle” Been There, which we took into today’s rating of the best wireless headphones.
These headphones are quite compact, but not very light for their size (a little over 300 grams), having an IPX4 dust and water protection level and a passport autonomy of 14 hours. Control – push-button, the buttons are located on the periphery of the cups. For charging, a microUSB port is used under the plug, next to it you can see the AUX input: if the battery runs out at the wrong time, then the headphones can also be connected “by analogy”.
However, you will not get any improvement in sound quality compared to Bluetooth: these headphones, of course, are never “audiophile”. This does not mean that the sound is frankly bad – in general, it is exactly what you expect from headphones for this price. The manufacturer does not hide the fact that the emphasis was on “chips” – portability, and some security, and a “long-lasting” battery for this price.
And the very design of the headphones in all four versions, we, perhaps, will be called typically teenage: even in a plain black version, the headphones look somehow frivolous.
RHA True Connect
This time, not whiskey or bagpipes were brought to us from Scotland, but a top model of sports wireless headphones, which even managed to exceed the expectations of the company’s marketers and sold out so quickly that for some time it even became scarce. And, despite the discreet appearance, these headphones are really interesting, and from the very moment of unpacking.
They are delivered in a branded “box” made of metal. With a soft-touch coating. Which also serves as a charging box: the fact is that the headphones are as wireless as possible. This is why they are also charged without connecting a cable. Prior to this, this was only offered at Apple with its AirPods. But those completely devoid of moisture protection do not dare to call a true sports model. To turn on the headphones.
It is enough to remove them from charging, and the switching mode depends on whether both are removed. (Then the stereo headset mode is activated). Or only one (then the mono mode is activated). The control buttons are spaced on both headphones. And due to their compactness, their functioning is rather confusing – you should still read the instructions.
Headphones are perfectly kept in the ears. The main thing is to choose the right ear cushions. Which are enough in the kit. Their autonomy is not great by the standards of “normal” wireless models (up to 5 hours). But for sports models with their inevitably ultra-compact batteries. This is a good indicator. As for the sound.
It is worth noting the energy of the bass, and the balanced level of The “top”. Which is not lost, and does not bulge upward with excessive artificiality. They play music exactly, and do not “depict. And they meet all the requirements for sports headphones – and therefore we can safely recommend them. More
