Sometimes I go into technology withdrawal and I just have to have a fix. For some time I have been wanting a pair of headphones to use with my iPad and iPhone. I have a good pair of ear buds, but just wanted another set.
I have been looking at three different units. The problem I get into, when this type of craving hits me, is that I want the best quality I can get. That pushed me to the new B&O H6 that have just been released, However, their $499 price is currently beyond my limit.
I had also been considering the Bowers & Wilkins P5, which are a little cheaper at $299. Still a bit steep for my budget.
Another one that I would be very happy with is the KEF 500. It is also priced at $299.
All of these are designed to work with Apple products and have built-in microphones.
I sort of have Champagne tastes and live on a beer budget.
Yesterday, I went into Premier and walked out with my fix satisfied. I picked up a pair of their bluetooth headphones for $39.99. The advantage these have, over my Champagne desired models, is that they are cordless.
All I have to do is connect them to any source with bluetooth and I can be up to 10 meters away from the source and still listen to my music. They also have a built-in microphone so if I am connected to my iPhone, when a phone call comes in, I am good to go. I just tap on the headphone and start talking.This will be a good thing to use when I drive.
When you take the price into account, the sound is very good. They could be a tad more comfortable. I am sure the $300+ models feel like a dream and cause your ears to have eargasms, but for now they will stay on my wish list. I am happy with my new purchase.
