Perfect for on the go. – RobinTech’s Premium Wireless Bluetooth Headphones.


My guys live with their headphones on. They are commercial electricians, and need to be available by phone at all times, but have to keep their hands free to work, obviously. And, not just work, but while driving too. Wireless, Bluetooth headphones are an essential for them. They also need to be durable to put up with the wear and tear they give them. This set from RobinTech is pretty nice. It arrives nicely packaged. Not the cheaper mail order packaging, used a lot, nowadays. In you package you will get 1 headphones, 1 micro USB charging cable, 1 instruction pamphlet, 1 storage case, 2 pairs of extra silicone ear buds (different sizes), and a little plastic clip to keep your wires gathered. They suggest charging them in full before use. A full charge from empty only takes about 1 ½ hours. There is a tiny red LED light showing it’s charging, and this light turns blue, when the earphones are fully charged. I love not having to guess; simple pleasures. The internal battery is an 85mAh battery. It may seem small, but for headphones, it’s not too shabby at all. You will actually get about 6 to 8 hours of play/talk time. The louder you play your music, the less battery time. The more you do on it, also cuts into battery time as well. If you have a week charger, it may take longer to charge. The ear buds are labeled R and L, on the ends. All of the controls, including the charging port are located on the right ear. On the side of the right ear, you will see their logo. This is actually the power/multipurpose button. Press and hold to turn on and pair. It will flash red/blue, and comes up Robintech to pair. It paired immediately with my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 phone. The sound quality is fantastic, and their CVC 6.0 Noise cancellation technology, coupled with how well thee ear buds sit in your ear, really work. My husband was trying to talk to me, while sitting right next to me, and I was clueless, lol. They have a really high water proof rating, IPX7, which means you can shower with them. Most headphones have an IPX6 rating, so this one has upped the game. My husband sweats like it’s raining when he’s working out, and working hard, lol. He has ruined many a headphone due to this. So, we shall see how long these last with him. These have the normal 10m/33ft distance from the Bluetooth deice, rating. That is same room. If you go behind a wall or door, it will drop the signal. Now, on top of the bar, on the R earphone, you will see a + and – buttons. You short press to lower, or heighten the volume, and long press to move forward or restart your song. You can also pair two devices at once, which is pretty cool. It does work with both Android and IOS systems. I only tested with Android, and these headphones worked flawlessly for me.

Here is a quick break down of some functions. They had it listed in their instruction pamphlet like this:

Ending a Call – Short press the MFB one time

Rejecting a Call – Short press the MFB for one second

Last Number Redial – Press the MFB twice

Cancel/End Dial in Practice – Short press the MFB one time

Music Pause/Play – Short Press the MFB one time

See, very basic, and easy to do.

The ear hook design is one of my favorites. My older son loves it as well. You can do handstands, and they stay put. My long hair knocks everything else out. Now, if you wear glasses, it makes this design a tweak harder. You have to put the earphones on first, and then your glasses. I was able to do this without issue. I love how they actually state the phone number when you call, so there is no guessing. That is important when you are driving. You never have to glance at your phone, even for a second. If you have to use your phone while you drive, due to work. Then having a solid pair of Bluetooth headphones is imperative. The calls came through loud and clear. The listener also heard what I was saying, or my husband, without issue. Overall, these are turning out to be a solid pair of headphones, and we are very happy with them.

Crisp clear sound with SoundPEATs New Arrival Q11 Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sport Headset.


I have to admit it; I am really fond of Soundpeat headphones. They really haven’t disappointed us in the past. I was so happy to receive their Q11 headphones to test. I love, love, love this over ear design. If you are bouncy, have a lot of hair, and are active, these babies will not fall out of your ear, and they are sweat proof! The design is perfecto! I wouldn’t change one thing! I really can’t express that enough. The design is perfect. Now, down to the music, lol. I wouldn’t be happy if they stayed on, but sounded horrible. That would be extra horrible, lol. These sound wonderful. The music and phone calls are nice, and crisp and clear. They chalk that up to their Bluetooth 4.1 technology and their apt X technology. It’s working for them. The bass and instrumental are clear. No edginess, or interference. There is no jumping or static at different levels. These headphones do have a bar off of the right ear. The controls are on the bar, and the micro USB port to charge them is on the right ear. The bar has a multipurpose button in the center, and a plus and minus buttons on either side of the multipurpose button. Press and hold the multipurpose button to turn them on and to pair. They come up as QY11 to pair, and no code is needed. They paired immediately with My Galaxy Note 5 phone. They do speak to you a little. For example: Power on, Power off, Phone 1 connected. They do not state the incoming call phone number though. One press of the multipurpose button is all it’s needed to both answer a phone call and to hang up a phone call. It will go back to playing your music when your call is over. Now, for the + and – buttons. Short press the minus button to lower the volume, long press to restart your song. Short press the + button to increase the volume, and long press to move to the next song. It’s very responsive, no lag. The calls are clear, and I had no trouble answering or hanging up. My husband used them out and about on the road for work without a hitch. You really can’t take calls without Bluetooth when you are in a car. Hands free is really the only way to go. He is on the road a lot, but has to take calls for work. These allow him to be safe and efficient. He also likes to run, and these are there for him yet again. Unfortunately I really love them too, lol. But, I love him more, so he gets first dibs on keeping them.

Meet the Dragon from Vomach.


I live in a home of gamers, lol. Especially computer gaming. These headphones are definitely getting some use. The have two 3.5mm cables and one USB cable attached to it. The USB is to power the green LED lighting throughout the headphones. I love the green LED lighting on these Vomach Dragon headphones. It really adds to the gaming environment. The mic on these actually lights up green as well. You do not have to use the LED lighting in order to use the headphones. My younger son’s computer isn’t set up for him to use the LEDs while using the headphones, unfortunately. My computer is, as well as my older son’s. One Aux cable powers the mic and headphones, and one just does the headphones, and no mic. No, they are not labeled, lol. My younger son always speaks to his friend while they play games, and the mic has been very clear for him. There is a mic off switch and a volume control bar, part way down the 2meter cable, and they are very easy to operate. It’s pretty generous in size, which is good for him, because he can’t sit still. The mic is clear on both ends too. You will not have to yell and keep repeating yourself with this one. I listened to videos and the sound is very clear. Both the bass and instrumental were pretty level. No weird pitches, no static, or lag. My son says they are perfect. And he is not a fan of headphones. He’d rather scream into the computer. It’s a lot of fun, lol. The ends of the Aux cables are gold plated for enhanced performance. The headband itself has a spring loaded adjustment to fit your head, and allow for comfortable movement and fit. The ear padding is very soft on the ears as well. On the inside of the ear cups you will see a screen printed Dragon; a nice touch if I do say so myself. Overall, we are very pleased with the Dragon from Vomach.

Voice activated call answering! – O’Plaza’s VIIVRIA Wireless Sports Stereo Sweat proof Bluetooth Earbuds.


We love Bluetooth headphones in our home. We use them all of the time too. My guys live and breathe with them, since they can use them at work. They always need to be able to take calls as well. With Bluetooth headphones like these, they can continue to work and drive, and still take calls from inspectors, head of the company, clients and more. These headphones are perfect for them, and so sporty too. I love the black and red colors. They really play off of each other so well. Since they are the over the ear design, they really stay in place well with movement. These Viivria headphones from O’Plaza come with a storage case, a small micro USB charging cable, and 2 pairs of extra silicone earbuds. These headphones have the controls set up on a bar off of the right ear. I like this set up. It is really easy to do without looking. These also have voice control, so when a call is coming in you can say yes to answer and no to decline. How great is that! These headphones have Bluetooth 4.1 technology. They are sweat proof, so great for working out. The sound quality is pretty good. They have CVC noise isolation. The bass and instrumental sound well balanced. Music is enjoyable with this set up. These talk to you, so there is no guessing. It states things like: Power On, Pairing, Device Is Connected, and it even spells out the incoming call. I love being able to say no to decline, and yes to accept a call. It works really well too! Also on the control bar are a + button and a – button. You short press these to adjust the volume, and long press to either move forward in your play list or restart your song. For the price point these are at, they are awesome. You can get about the usual 30ft away from these, just not down the hallway, around corners, or behind doors. If you have an IPhone you should be able to detect the battery status on these. I have Android, so I do not have that ability. They do get about 4 ½ hours of playtime, 180 hours of standby time, and only take a couple hours to charge. Not too shabby.

Great sounding Wireless headphones. – Apie’s Wireless Bluetooth Headphones.


I live in a household of music nuts. But, it’s not always convenient to play your tunes or audio books out loud. That’s where headphones come in handy. We have several different kinds. But the full sized ones are really comfortable to wear. This pair by Apie is quite comfy, and the red/black combination is really sporty. I like it a lot. In your package you will get 1 large velvet drawstring storage bag, 1 headphones, 1 short micro USB cord, and 1-3.5mm to 3.5mm Aux cable. There is a bright red LED on while they are charging, and when they are done, the light turns green. I love they thy fold for easy portability and storage. I am so glad they included the storage bag, not all of them do. Here are some of the specs for these headphones:

*40mm drivers

*Up to 8hrs of battery life, Polymer Lithium Battery, 220mAh

*Impedance – 32ohm

*Frequency Response – 20-20.000Hz

* Sensibility 106dB+3dB

*Output power – 150mw

These headphones have the right ear and left ear clearly marked on the inside of the headband. The controls are on the right ear. There is a separate multipurpose button, a volume + button, a volume – button, a fast forward to next song button, and a restart, and go back in the playlist button. The multipurpose button is the power button, pause button, and phone call button. You can take calls with these headphones. They do have a mic. My headphones paired quickly and with no code required. They came up as SF-SH888B to pair. I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and they work wonderfully with it. I can listen to anything with Wi-Fi though, or through the Aux cable, which is great. The ear padding on these is very soft and comfortable. They are easily adjustable as well to fit a variety of head shapes and sizes. I listened to a large variety of music; from rap, to country, to pop, and rock. The instrumental and bass sounded clear and enjoyable. I didn’t get any pitchiness, or lag. You can be approx.. 10-15 meters away if in the same room. If you go around corners or walls, the signal will drop. You do get that choppy warning, so if you back up, your signal will remain. The phone calls are very clear. When you press the multipurpose button, wait a second, and it will answer the call. I was getting impatient, lol. And would press the button again; press and what a second. The call answers loud and clear. These headphones do speak to you for things like: Power on, Power off, and the like. They do not state what call is coming in, it plays that usual diddy to let you know you have an incoming call. These are quite comfortable on. I wore them for a long time, and my ears never broke a sweat, and I never developed a headache. I just enjoyed my music. I am truly enjoying these headphones, and I am comfortable recommending them.

I love the magnetic ends. – Mpow Bullfight Bluetooth 4.1 Wearable Wireless Headphones.


My guys use a lot of Bluetooth headphones. Be it for the gym, or work, they get used. They are also a must have for driving if you work on the road like my guys. It’s the hands free way to take calls, so you do not get distracted while driving. I am quite pleased with this set by Mpow. They are comfortable to wear, and they fit so well. I shook and shook my head, as well as jumped around, and did sit ups. They stayed in perfectly. They do come with 1 extra pair of silicone earbuds, in case you need them. These have their controls on a bar a little off of the right ear. These headphones are also magnetic. You can hook them around your neck while not in use. You can wrap them around your wrist like a bracelet until you need them, and you can place them on the fridge so you don’t forget to take them with you when you head out. My Galaxy Note 5 paired quickly with these headphones. They pair with the coolest code I am seen yet: Mpow Bullfight. How about that?! These don’t speak until you pwer off, and then they say, “power off”. It will let you know when a call is coming in. There is a button on the back of the bar, just press it. It works really well, and there is really no log. These headphones have a Honeywell switch in them, which is what makes the switch so smooth. The calls were actually pretty loud and clear. When the call is over, it will revert right back to your music. When you first turn the headphones on, you need to press the multipurpose button on the back of the bar for about 4 seconds. You will then see the red and blue LEDs flash. The + and – buttons are on the front of the bar. If you short press these, they adjust the volume. When you long press them, they will either move your music forward, or restart the last song. The headphones have the Bluetooth 4.1 version, and a pretty long battery life. You will get about 7 hours of talk/play time, and 175 hours of standby time. If you listen to your music really loud, the play time will be less. You can get about 30 feet or 10 meters away from your source with these, but not around corners or behind walls. I could only go around 15ft away when going around a corner, before it started breaking up. I was able to really enjoy many different genre of music with these headphones. The music was pretty clear, and even. These are pretty enjoyable to wear and use.

Great clarity! – PWOW’s E150 In-Ear Sports Headphones with Microphone.


I think we all own at least one set of headphones nowadays. Be it wires or wireless, they are a necessity with our electronics. Wired headphones can be more useful than Bluetooth ones. They have some advantage with clarity. My husband and I notice a big difference for the listener, in their clarity when using wired headphones over Bluetooth ones. There is s much less background noise, or road noise with wired headphones. These wired headphones from Pwow, have a sporty look to them. They come with a clip, to help keep the wire still when using them for a call. It actually makes a big difference during a call. Otherwise the mic could be rubbing across your clothing, making for a hard to hear call. These are small, and fit nicely in the ear, for a low profile look and feel; I like that. The bar for these headphones is located a little ways down from the left earbud. That is where the button is to pause your music, or to answer and hang up from a call. It works pretty well. It’s easy to answer without looking. With wired headphones you don’t have to worry about the battery on the headphones dying on you during a call. Which is very important if you use these while working, like my guys. The sound is pretty clear with these. Both the bass and instrumental were pretty good. The cord on these is pretty long, which makes these doable with running and working out. They work really well with my Note 5 phone. The 3.5mm plug is nice and snug in my port, it has no play to it. They fit very securely in ear. You can shake, bounce, jump, and wiggle, and they stay put in my ears. These are a little unique, because a little ways down from the first bar with the call/pause button on it, you will find another bar with a volume slide switch. You can adjust your volume up and down with this bar. It only goes so far, so if you have the volume up higher in your phone, that is the highest the volume will go to. It will always go down to silent though, which is good to have. It really fast to adjust since it’s a slide switch. I measured these at 52” long, after being plugged in to my phone. I am very happy with the sound quality and clarity. The long wire surprisingly doesn’t tangle easily on me either. These even arrive with a spare set of earbuds. I am very pleased overall with this pair of wired headphones.

Incredible sound with Apie’s Best In-ear Headphones Earbuds.


I use headphones if I have to take a call while driving. I only accept calls from my husband and kids. But, when I do, I’ve noticed that wired headphones tend to deliver a lot clearer calls for the other person, over Bluetooth headphones. Road noise is a huge problem for the listener. Wired headphones can cut a lot more of it out compared to Bluetooth. I’ve experienced the same. My husband drives a lot for his regular job. He talks to me using headphones. If he wears Bluetooth ones, I am always asking him to repeat himself. That can get annoying for both partners. I really like these wired headphones. The shape is unique, but they sit well in ear. They do not wiggle around on me, and are pretty comfortable to wear. They have a mic, and a button to accept and hang up from calls. This same button will also pause your music when you need to. This button is located on the wire on a little bar. It is readily accessible without looking, which is great when you are driving, or working. These headphones have a metal casing and “exclusive tuning technology triband clear, natural, unique sensing technology to suppress high frequency glitches”. That’s a mouth full. They really do keep the music sounding enjoyable, and clear. Very clear I must say. It’s very relaxing to be able to sit and just enjoy your music without interference, or glitching. They also come with 2 pairs of spare silicone earbuds, and a velvet drawstring storage bag. These also offer some nice noise cancellation as well. They used neodymium iron boron magnets to move coil drive units in each earbud. This allows the smooth music play. There is a higher sensitivity response and a broader frequency range because of the magnets. I honestly wasn’t expecting such nice sound out of a pair of headphones that only cost $11.99 right now.

Here are some specs from the manufacturer: “Specifications: Driver units: 9.7mm. Rated impedance: 16 ohm. Sensitivity: 110dB. Frequency response: 20Hz -24000Hz. Distortion: <1% . Channel balance: <2 dB. Maximum power: 20mW. Gold plated plug: 3.5mm.”

I love the wire on these. It has a slick covering to it, and it really amps these up aesthetically. Overall, they are pretty sharp looking. I really can’t find one negative with these headphones, and I looked.
