A good design for sports use – but rather average sound-quality at this price level
30 December 2017
The Avanca D1sports headphones are a reasonable performer at the price, but are designed more for the sports side of things rather than for their audio quality. The headphones are lightweight and by using Bluetooth technology there are no wires back to your Smartphone or other music player – this is now essential for the new model iPhones that don't have a 3.5mm headphone socket for cabled ones. The D1 comes with three different sizes of earbuds so there should be good fit for most users – even if your two ears are slightly different in size. There is a touch-control for music and phone functions – but I found this a bit fiddly to use and adjusted the volume before wearing them, and probably would not use them for phone calls when active. The Avanca D1 is currently priced around forty pounds from Amazon, but each of the four colour options is priced separately and differ by a few pounds. The sports headphone market is very competitive and although the Avanca D1 model is nicely made it is rather let down by it's average sound quality; worth considering by runners and regular gym-users but for general day-to-day use you will probably find a better-sounding model at this price level.
