As if magically in almost no time the world has gone Bluetooth headphone crazy.. Probably something to do with Apple removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, but hey – whatever gets us talking.
Bluetooth headphones are not new, they’ve been around a long time – but with the world’s attention on them it’s a great time to show off new products.
3SIXT have hit the market with a vast array of iPhone 7 accessories, but these Bluetooth Studio Earbuds are not just for iPhone, they’ll work on any smartphone with Bluetooth.
A single cable about 60cm long connects the two earbuds which magnetically snap together to activate their on/off switch.
Simply separate them and the power comes on.
Once paired, the sound gets cranking.
Volume was excellent, no issues there in fact I paired it back two notches from the top on my iPhone.
And overall the quality was good. Not great for sure, but perhaps just a touch “tinny” overall. For a walk to the shop or even a run (they were a snug fit) they are perfect.
At just $80 they’re not likely the first choice for regular travellers but would be great on the bus or train for the commute and they’re easy to find too – available at Optus, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile and Telstra Stores.
