These days everyone has a Bluetooth enabled phone and lots of people like listening to music or watching video on their phone, but while that is great, other people around you don’t necessarily want to hear what you are listening to. So, the obvious choice is to get a pair of headphones or earphones. There are plenty on the market, but the question is, do you get wired or wireless? I prefer a wireless Bluetooth headset, in the ear rather than over the head.
I was sent a Bluetooth headset from ATTRAKEY for review. I received the S350 Wireless In-Ear Sports Earbuds, which are sweatproof earphones (if you like to listen to music while running there is no need to worry about sweat damaging the earbuds), they are Noise Cancelling and have a mic so you can still take phone calls. They are available in a variety of colours (I received mine in blue).
When they arrived, in the box is:
1x ATTRAKEY S350 Bluetooth Headset
1x Micro USB Charging Cable
3x Rubber Ear Tips in different sizes (Small, Medium and Large)
1x Foam Ear Tips
1x Hard Carry Case
1x User Manual
Unlike most headphones or earphones I have previous used, the ATTRAKEY S350 Bluetooth Headset has a flat cable between the two ear pieces rather than a round cable which is quite comfortable around the neck. The ear piece itself has a rubber ear tips (they can be changed and come in different sizes) and a fin (ear hook) that goes around the ear piece to fit securely into your ear. The ear pieces are angled so have a better fit and are quite secure in the ear, even when moving (so great for jogging or at the gym).
All the controls are on one ear piece (on/off, volume and mic) and pairing by Bluetooth is a doddle (with a range of up to 33ft), just switch them on and find them on your phone or tablet – you can even pair with 2 devices at once (tablet and phone or even 2 phones) so you can listen 2 your favourite music on one device while having the ability to answer a call on the other device.
Battery life is around 7 hours from one charge – it has a 85mAh battery (non-replaceable). Charging is easy, using the supplied Micro USB charging cable you can plug into your laptop or USB wall socket.
The sound is crystal clear, no distortion. The ATTRAKEY S350 comes with built-in CSR BlueCore chip (CSR8635) and APT-X audio decoding technology, as well as CVC6.0 noise cancelling technology.
Answering phone calls is simple by pressing the button on the earpiece and the sound is clear and the mic picks up the sound well.
And for when not in use, ATTRAKEY supply a hard shell case for storage that will fit in or pocket and not take up much room.
Overall, the ATTRAKEY S350 bluetooth headset is an excellent Bluetooth headset. They are extremely lightweight and comfortable to wear, the ear pieces fit securely in the ear and are sweatproof so won’t be damaged when exercising, the sound (audio and mic) is crystal clear and distortion free and the battery is excellent.
An excellent Bluetooth headset for at the gym, out jogging or just everyday use. Great sound for listening to music or phone calls.
