When I was offered another set of bluetooth earbuds for review, I was a bit wary.
The Staroc Premium Bluetooth 4.1 Stereo Earphones, looked
1) Very Bright, and
2) Very Uncomfortable…
I need not have worried, yes they are bright but it is good as it lets people see you are wearing headphones, I find this a blessing,the number of times I have answered a call with a bluetooth headset and had funny looks for “talking to myself” have been many… at least with these it is obvious what is going on.
But lets address the comfort from the outset. I looked at these with a mix of horror and foreboding. I had agreed to give them an honest review in exchange for a set of these, how could I review something that I could not even get into my ears.
Well not only am I happy to report that I can get them into my ears, but also that they are really comfortable, and fit my ears snugly, and fit tight.
They are shaped and come with detachable ear locks, which really do hold the buds in well.
The shaped buds themselves, expand as they go into your ears locking them in and also reducing external noise interference.
OK so a review of
The Staroc Premium Bluetooth 4.1 Stereo Earphones
Came on time, first and foremost I find this vital, … when I order from Amazon I want it … there and then really, so I tend to only order things that are available on prime, if it takes more than two days … forget it I will go to the shops.
Packaging was minimalistic, which I like, but it was secure.
Instructions are well laid out and clear to use… NB Give the head set a full charge before use…. I gave them 12 hours, although they showed as charged after 2 hours.
Pairing was easy and straight forward.
You can pair two phones and connect both at the same time, ( watch this, if you press redial, make sure the number you are redialing is on the right phone!)
I have them paired to my iMac, and my phone…
The head set works well with both, I love it on Skype, clear sound and the microphone is great. Certainly everyone I have talked to since having it have not suggested my sound has deteriorated in anyway.
The controls are a bit more fiddly than my plantronics headset… but I have to say the sound qualities more than make up for this tiny niggle, and the more I have used them the easier it has been …
In short, if you are looking for quality sound, in a wireless bud type ear phone, I can wholeheartedly recommend The Staroc Premium Bluetooth 4.1 Stereo Earphones
