I have something to confess; I am a major consumer of video content. I have Amazon Prime and so enjoy access to many films and tv series which I download onto my Kindle each day to ensure I will have something to entertain me when I am commuting (2 hours a day!).
In general this method works well, and I enjoy a few episodes between home and work and back again, however, one major bugbear of mine is headphone cables which seem to get in the way no matter how I wear my head or earphones. Commuting is practically a competitive sport and I don’t want to be worrying about getting my cables caught when I am trying to fight to a seat or alighting at my stop.
So, having been inspired by a colleague who recently bought some wireless headphones I did a bit of research and purchased some ECandy wireless headphones in blue from Amazon for £15.99 (down from £69.99) to alleviate my commuting problems. Now I have used wireless products before, however, for one reason or another I haven’t really gotten on with them. In particular I had a wireless set of earphones which despite being wireless from device to earphones, the earphones themselves of course were connected by a wire which tended to get in the way.
The ECandy wireless headphones boast top quality, high definition stereo sound with noise isolation ear cups and superior bass response. Additional bonuses include the fact that the headphones also have a removable audio cable option and are foldable. They use a simple Bluetooth connection as their mode of wireless transmission. The headphones are easy to charge via a micro USB and take around 2 hours to fully charge.
So far I have been impressed with the ECandy wireless headphones in terms of sound quality with a crisp clear tones and decent bass. I have very much enjoyed cable-free entertainment both on the commute as well as at my desk. I particularly like the fact that these headphones fold up and therefore can easily be transported in a handbag. The headphones offer great noise isolation, even people sitting next to me find it hard to get my attention when I am listening to music with them.
The only slightly negative comments I have are firstly, the controls which are located on the right ear cup and can be fiddly to use when the headphones are in situ. Secondly the headphones have a built in voice which lets you know when they have been switched on/off, are connecting/connected, although this is useful I find the electronic voice a little abrasive especially first thing in the morning!
I do find myself having to charge the headphones during the day to ensure I have enough battery to get me through my evening commute, however, as I can spend many hours listening to music at my desk I can’t really complain!
I am happy to say that I really do recommend the ECandy wireless headphones for a quality, cable-free sound experience and award them 4 out of 5 stars.
