These are a fantastic set of headphones, comfortable, stylish, and awesome audio quality. They come in a well presented box, all folded and ready to go in a stylish carrying case. In the box you’ll find, the headphones, a 3.5mm cable, carrying case, micro USB cable, user manual, and warranty card.
They are easy to start up, giving the user the option of using bluetooth, or a 3.5mm cable to pair your device. The option of having both forms of connection is great as it means you’re always going to be able to use these headphones with pretty much any device, old or new.
When it comes to noise quality these things are fantastic! The noise cancelling is mind blowing, literally cancelling out everything else around you while you listen to your music or take your calls. The audio range is brilliant, and my music sounds great when using these headphones. I can’t stress how good these things are, especially considering the price!
The look and feel is good. They look stylish and they are extremely comfortable to wear, although, a little on the heavy side. However they are well cushioned and fit very well. They fold up and become even more portable which is a welcome feature.
I would personally be willing to pay more than the asking price when it comes to these headphones, and after reviewing other bluetooth headphones, I can safely say these are the best I’ve had the pleasure of using. Definitely worth picking up a pair.
TheSoundpeats Q2 wireless headphones struck me as being a lot more premium than the price suggested when I first opened them up. They come in a tidy little box, safely tucked away in a nice carrying case.
I popped the case open and found the headphones tucked away inside, already charged and waiting their first use. My first observation was that these headphones looked and felt good, withwell defined buttons and clear print and symbols.
At this price range I’m used to a flimsy wire and headphones that have a habit of popping out of my ears every few minutes. This set has a hard plastic loop with a soft matte finish that sits over yourearlobes, securing the headphones in place. The connection between the two earpieces sits along the top of your neck and is a fairly durable and thick wire with padding.
So design and build quality are right up there. In fact it was so impressive that I had todouble check the price to make sure I was reviewing these headphones against other devices in the price bracket!
Moving on to the audio side, probably the reason you’re looking at picking these up right? Well here’s where things aren’t as good.
The sound quality is OK, but they perform like a cheap headset. For the price bracketits what I’d expect, but they do seem just a little muffled with sub par audio range.
While listening to music the vocals were clear but instruments, especially bass, were drowned out. Things got a little better at louder volume, but that isn’t ideal and gets uncomfortable. Certain tracks were almost unidentifiable, just a singer and someone bashing a bass drum with everything else an inaudible blur. These headphones can’t cope with much more than a singer strumming an acoustic guitar.
When I popped these headphones open the first thought that entered my mind was ‘How on earth will these stay in my ears?’ Well I’m not sure how, but they do stay in. They look stylish and are pretty lightweight. Normally I prefer to wear something that has a clip to go over my ear rather than headphones such as these which seem supported by nothing. However these are comfortable to wear and stay in my ears, they never slipped out and the cable attaching the two buds together never gets in the way.
On the headphones you’ll find a small micro usb port, volume up and down controls and also a power button. All of these ports and buttons are stylishly presented with nothing sticking out. At first they look like they will stick out of your ears, but to be fair they nestle in quite nicely (check out my attached picture)
Pairing these headphones is fast and easy. Once paired up with your device they will automatically connect once you turn the headphones on, making it fast and efficient.
The sound quality is fantastic for the price. The only time they skipped was during my more active periods such as running or cycling, but to be fair this was very rare. The headphones also cut out background noise and do a very good job of this. I’ve been using the EarPods that come with Apple devices and these headphones exceed the quality offered by Apples headphones by quite a margin, giving you a good indication to compare against.
If you’re after some lightweight and sporty headphones then these are definitely worth investing in, especially if you’re on a budget.
