MEElectronics AF-32 Wireless Headphones,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MEElectronics AF32-GK Air-Fi AF32 Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with Hidden Microphone (Electronics)
First up, I am going to say that these are the best wireless headphones I have used yet. My previous experiences with wireless headphones has not been great, with the best of the rotten bunch being the Sennheiser RS120 II RF Wireless Headphones. But they used the radio frequency rather than bluetooth and often latched onto other signals such as baby monitors or other radio signals. There was also a lot of interference and buzzing with the radio ones, so to finally get a hold of a pair of wireless headphones which do not suffer from these drawbacks is wonderful. These headphones are considerably better sounding, as well as being more comfortable than the aforementioned pricier Sennheiser's.
These headphones use bluetooth for connection which is crystal clear with no interference at all. I also want to add here that you can listen with these headphones through the supplied wire as well, and I did not notice any sound difference. This is not to the detriment of the headphones, it is a testament to how good they sound wirelessly. I easily managed to connect them up to my macbook, iPad, and iPhone completely wirelessly, and they worked instantly. No installation required at all, and the sound quality out of the box was also pretty good.
Once I tweaked the equaliser on iTunes a bit I managed to get them sounding really good, with a nice heavy bass that did not distort, and reasonably high treble for increased clarity in the high end. I could not, however, get the mid-levels particularly clear. They sound fine, if a little muddy, and they just lack that openness that you find with some other headphones in the price bracket. It's hard to describe without hearing the difference yourself side by side, but by no means do they sound bad; they actually sound considerably better than the wired House of Marley Positive Vibrations Rasta Headphones that cost a similar amount and are getting very good reviews. I would comfortably encourage paying the extra £10 and get these over them because they are far more comfortable and include the ability to listen wirelessly. Even over the wireless they sound better, so this is a real plus point!
The headphones are incredibly portable. They fold up and they come supplied with a bag to keep them in. The bag offers little to no protection, but is still nice to have and keeps them from getting dirty if you put them in a bag with other things. The battery is also excellent, and the headphones themselves look great, if a little plastic. They are a bit of a fingerprint magnet due to the glossy black band over the top, but they are aesthetically pleasing to look at. The ear pads sit on the ear, rather than over the ear, and they are also plastic rather than leather. They are remarkably comfortable and they sit well on your head without slipping off, and are not so tight that they hurt after prolonged use (even if you wear glasses like I do). The only drawback to the ear pads is that they leak a lot of sound, and I mean a lot. Even on mid-low volume others can hear what I am listening to.
That is only a slight negative really to the overall headphones though, but this, coupled with the muddy, enclosed sound of the mid-levels knocks a star off the rating. However, If you are after a pair of wireless headphones I would seriously recommend them. I am quite picky with my sound and have tried a lot of different headphones ranging in quality and price, and these are definitely worth the money. In this price bracket you can get better sounding wired headphones, but not that much better and I doubt most people would even notice the difference. If wireless is your thing, then these are superb and I heartily recommend them over any others you have looked at in this price range or even slightly higher.
