Most everyone has owned a few pairs of headphones in their lifetime. Wireless over the ear headphones are becoming more popular as wireless technology advances while prices drop. In the recent past, a variety of Bluetooth headphones has spawned with a wide range in quality and price. Over the past couple weeks I’ve had the opportunity to spend some serious time with the Havit Bluetooth Touch Headphones and want to share my experience with you.
The Havit Bluetooth Touch Headphones look like many other headphones with a common head band with over the ear cups. They are made of plastic, cloth, and very soft faux leather. The head band is nicely padded and comfortable both on top of your head and around your neck. There are some minor construction flaws in the pair I received – a strange small bump on the top of the headband, which is purely cosmetic but still noticeable.
The ear cups are made of a nice glossy plastic and have touch sensitive controls built into the sides. Touch sensitive controls are usually found on headphones at least five times the price of the Havit Bluetooth Touch Headphones. You can play/pause music, answer/hang up on a phone call, increase/decrease volume and fast forward/rewind songs all from the side of the headphones.
Incredibly, quick touch NFC pairing is available too making connecting the headphones to your phone a breeze.
With ample battery life, surprisingly loud audio and prominent bass, the Havit Bluetooth Touch Headphones have replaced more expensive Bluetooth name brand headphones in my daily use. They’ve been excellent for both listening to music at work, and unexpectedly handy for using as my headset while gaming at home too. With the 12-14+ hours of battery life, I didn’t have the battery die on me once through many charge cycles.
The touch controls are useful too, a tap on the left ear will pause or play, swiping up and down with one finger will increase or decrease the volume, while two fingers are used for track control. I found myself simply using the tap to pause or play the most. The same left headphone has the physical power button, physical volume controls, the USB charging port, and the audio input jack keeping all of the controls at the tips of your fingers.
The Havit Bluetooth Touch Headphones sound great and get really loud. They don’t have the detail of high-end headphones, but for $45 they are quite a deal. My only issue was as good as they looked from three feet away, once I got up close I could tell there were some slight manufacturing defects. These little things matter to me and make me worry about long-term durability. Although with a good 20 hours of solid usage, I never once experienced one build-quality issue and was in awe of how many features were packed into these headphones.
- About 12 hours of hands-free talking and 14 hours wireless music playing
- Charging time: about 2-2.5 hours
- Wireless working distance: 8-10 meters
- Supports Bluetooth A2DP, AVRCP, and HS/HF profiles
- Headset line length: 120cm
- USB Cable Length: 65CM
For the $45 amazon price tag I’d recommend the Havit Bluetooth Touch Headphones over many wired headphones and any wireless headphones in the same price range. Just be sure you’re okay with the trade-off of the material and build quality for the excellent sound quality and touch controls. I sure am.
