audio-technica Solid Bass® Wireless In-ear Headphones
It used to be that when it came to headphones, it used to be that you had to pick what attributes you wanted: Bluetooth enabled, wireless, deep bass, in-ear. Now, with audio-technica Solid Bass® Wireless In-ear Headphones, you can get it all! I was happy to be hosted to experience them.
These are a new product from audio-technica, one of the leaders in sound technology.
First, you have to charge the headphones via an enclosed USB cable. I kept them on a charger overnight. You press the power button and then, have your device recognize them through Bluetooth technology. The headphones themselves have powerful volume capabilities, so consumers are advised to turn the volume on your device down at first, so as not to be shocked by loud sound or harm your hearing.
The headphones come with medium sized in-ear buds, with a replacement set of small, medium and large sized ear buds for a more customized fit.
The headphones then fit around the back of your head, lightly and comfortably. While they advise consumers not to use the headphones on aircraft, as they may affect the plane’s radio transmission. However, think of all the wonderful places you can use them, listening to music untethered: trains, buses, even long and boring car trips! They’re absolutely terrific for the library, waiting rooms, dorm rooms. hotel rooms and the gym — just put your smart phone in your pocket! They do say in the owners manual to keep the volume a bit lower on public conveyances. Also, due to their exceptional acoustic seal, you can’t hear ambient noise, so don’t use them at times when that could put you in peril, such as when crossing railroad tracks, walking in an alley, etc.
They come with in-line mic and control, so you can accept phone calls from a phone and change the volume without fishing out your device.
They achieve exceptionally rich bass register sound by means of an extra chamber above the housing. That’s sort of like the raised ceilings in the world’s greatest concert halls!
I tested the bass qualities listening to some old school songs known for their bass: Marshall Tucker Band with the late, great George McCorkle, Ike and Tina doing Proud Mary, some funky Jackson 5. My little smart phone became another device altogether! It occurred to me that the music I was hearing sounded like that rich surround sound you hear in movie theaters. I then tested out this theory by listening to some soundtracks I had: Cabaret, Fiddler on the Roof, Les Miserables. It was absolutely like being at the theater!
You can pair Solid Bass® Wireless In-ear Headphones with any Bluetooth enabled device that plays music, including phones, tablets and laptops.
