|Rowkin Mini Plus+|
However, I was disappointed by the fact that it only has a 2-3 hour music/talk time per charge. I understand that for many compact Bluetooth earbuds this is standard so they can save weight. Unfortunately for me, I am one who forgets to charge so at least I have the charging capsule right?
The other disappointment is when I did my calling test on it. My experimental method was calling my father who has a hard time hearing so he is the one who rated the call experience (very scientific I know). The Rowkin Mini Plus + was "very tinny" in my dad's words and had trouble making out words. This was of great disappointment since it is so light it would be easy to walk around with all day answering business calls with.
Verdict: The Rowkin Mini Plus+ is perfect for a quick walk or jog around your neighborhood because with only one earbud you can hear what is going on around you as well as your music. Ladies, I beg you not to wear noise cancelling headphones or dual earbuds with the music up when alone because it makes you are target to theft or even sexual assault. I do not want to leave the Men out because the same could happen to you! I would say the major plus for these earbuds are the size design, and if you only have one in you still feel connected to the world around you.
|Aftershokz Trekz Titanium|
Verdict: I love the Aftershokz Trekz Titanium! They did very well in the calling test. My dad said I sounded clearer than when I usually hold the phone so that is a major plus for me. I can wear them around the house answering calls and listening to music but still hear my loving husband call me if he needs me. The battery life is also awesome with 6 hours of continual music or calling on a single charge. This is definitely good buy!
|JLab Audio Flex Bluetooth Active Noise Cancelling Headphones|
Now listen up! These headphones are called Flex because you can use a detachable wire or Bluetooth. If you have them wired up you get 60 hours of time with active noise control (anc), 30 hours of Bluetooth only time, and 10 hours of usage with Bluetooth and (anc). WOW! These headphones also have superior call sound. My dad said I sounded the best when calling him on these headphones. I have worn these already on a flight from San Diego to Dallas and they were perfect. I could not hear all the extra plane noise and the audio from my movie was clear and easy to understand without having to turn things up loud like I would have normally.
Verdict: These are amazing especially for the price point! Many headphones that do not even come close to offering what these do and are much more expensive and not as good of quality in build and in sound. These are very comfortable because JLab took into consideration how and wear headphones should be placed. I can see myself wearing these for years to come and the versatility with being able to use the wire when I need or want to is awesome. I would hands down recommend these headphones to all.
Overall, Bluetooth headphones really make life so much easier and enjoyable without being attached to a cord. It is okay to have more than one set of headphones for different activities. For outdoor exercise the Trekx Titanium is #1 but for overall quality, cost, and versatility the JLab Flex can not be beat.
