Here we’ll have a look at Accessorize Your Life’s AX1 Bluetooth Sport Headphones. They sport a friction fit earpiece that also has a hook that rests in our ear to help keep them positioned correctly. Included in the set is a few different size earpieces so you can find the right fit for your ears. Comfort-wise, these are great headphones. They fit nicely in my ear and are very light. The added hook shaped piece really helps keep the headphones situated in your ear in the proper position.
When I unboxed my set and tried to power it on, I found them in need of a charge. At first, I was concerned I had received a lemon because even after plugging them in to the micro USB charger, I was not getting a light from the LED. It turns out I just needed to be patient and give it a few minutes before the LED came on. At this point I figured it best to let them charge before I tried them out.
With the headphones charged, it was time to test the connectivity. Pairing them to my phone was a breeze. Just put the headphones in pairing mode and scan from your phone and connect once it find them. I paired them with my laptop as well and had no issues there either.
Now it was time to test out the sound quality. When I first put them in and played a sampling of music genres from Spotify, I thought they had a pretty decent sound. The bass response was pretty good and the mids and highs sounded good. One rather bass-y song did cause some distortion, but other than that they appeared to have a pretty good range. The volume is more than sufficient as well. At this point, I decided to compare them to the headphones that came with my old Galaxy S3 phone that are my old standby. Those headphones fit me perfectly and have great sound. I like them way more than the ones that came with my new S7, if anyone cares, but I digress. What I found was that the Samsung headphones had way more clarity and an overall better listening experience. A couple more side by sides, and I reached the conclusion that these just didn’t stack up sound-wise. That said, if you’re not an audiophile such as myself, or don’t mind the trade-off of slightly lower sound quality in exchange for quasi-wireless (since they are wired to each other), then these are still great headphones. These also double as a headset for phone conversations and the quality is good for calls on both the ends.
All in all, these are decent alternatives to wired headphones that have a nice fit and stay snug in your ears. The sound quality could be better, but at this price point, they are pretty good. I wouldn’t recommend them for the audiophiles, but for the regular person who just wants to enjoy some music with a pair of headphones you don’t have to plug in to your device, these function quite well.
