Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Bluetooth Headphones Over Ear, Bluedio T7 Turbine Custom Active Noise Canceling Headphone 57mm Driver Hi-Fi Stereo & 30Hrs Playtime, Wireless Headsets with Mic for PC/Cellphone/Travel/Work, Black
** 1st UPDATE AT BOTTOM ** ** 2nd UPDATE AFTER THIRD UPDATE**
** 3rd update** It stopped charging (see 2nd update). I contacted support, and they asked me to try the original cable. I did, and it worked [rating upped from 1 to 3 stars]. This means I need to carry the one cable that works to charge my headphones? Why does it not work with the other cables that charge my other USB-C devices? bummer! ** 3rd update ends **
** 2nd update ** I've had it almost three months to the day, and it has stopped charging. Yep, it is a paperweight. I've contacted Bluedio, I will certainly post here what the results of that are. [rating dropped from 4 to 1 star] ** 2nd UPDATE ENDS **
Got it last night. Wore it at the desk all day today.
Pro's No problems pairing with my PC, mobile phone, and Cisco desk phone. No complaints from other parties that they were not able to hear me. Reasonably comfortable, but certainly not Bose-level comfort. Music sounded great, but I am not an audiophile. ANC was able to reduce the noise from co-workers, but not get rid of it entirely
Con's PLEASE release a firmware update with a native speaker for whatever language the "assistant" is speaking. Or just beeps - I really find the heavy accent jarring. Power & ANC buttons have fine placement, but the buttons themselves often require me to catch a fingernail to get them to move side-to-side Media control buttons (+/- & play/pause) are awkwardly placed on the top front of the right ear assembly. The actuation is fine, but either a head-turn to the left or an elbow out to the right (or both) is required to get my fingers on them without any unnatural wrist twists. Could be better.
This is just the first day, I'll offer additional insight after a week, check back on May 9th. I'll be wearing it in the gym 3 of those days (the reason I bought them), and will let you know.
** UPDATES ** Getting used to the media controls, and I feel that the placement is adequate now.
These work 4/5 in the gym; - the range is really good, I was able to walk across the gym and into the bathroom with no audio consequences. - I find that wearing over-the-ear headphones tends to discourage social interaction with others. Depending on what your goal is in the gym, this can be a pro or a con (it's a pro for me). - Only issue I had was them not staying on really well for prone exercises like a flat bench... not a big deal, and I don't think you'll find an over-the-ear that does well with this. - the bass (as another reviewer noted) is a tad overpowering, but, for me, that helps in the gym
TL;DR For the price point, definitely adequate, and recommended IF your desires match up with what the reviewers have found.
These headphones will just stop playing sound randomly or just disconnect entirely for no apparent reason. The buttons are also prone to just not working. There is also the gimmick where it will stop playing if you take off the headphones and start when you put them back on. The thing is, when you put them on without anything playing, they will just start whatever you were listening to last. In order to turn this off, you need to download their app which is almost entirely unusable.
I've been a huge believer of bluedio's sound and quality since I got my first pair of T2s 6 years ago, until my dog ate it, then I got T3s. Bluedio's sound sound quality for cost has never let me down. Until now. For reason whatever the T7 is nowhere near as loud or has the sound clarity of the older generations. As it stands right now, I have to have my device at full volume to hear anything through the T7 headphones. The vender offered me a partial refund and keep the headphones. I'll be giving these to my daughter since I know it won't make her deaf. Bluedio, please bring back the quality you used to have. Make me a believer again.
The noise cancelling actually cancels noise in loud environments pretty well at times. Lawn mower noise or airplane noise are each greatly reduced leading to a much more comfortable experience much of the time. Unfortunately, they also have a horrible flaw that causes the left speaker to buzz loudly when noise cancelling is on. This only happens some of the time, but it is very problematic and makes the noise cancelling useless when it is happening.
The automatic pause feature is fantastic, except when it is randomly pausing something even when you aren't moving. Their app is not something that anyone should be using, as it is literally one of the worst apps that I have ever seen on a phone.
Other than that, the sound quality is actually pretty decent for the price. I think there are better options available, though.
The noise-cancelling function works well. The audio quality is great with noise cancellation turned on. The fit is quite cozy on the head. However, these things are prone to random disconnection, and to loud crackling noise when the vehicle in which one is riding hits bumps in the road while the n/c is turned on. The headbands can be expected to break toward the earcup - the sliding assembly inside is defectively designed and made of fragile materials. My first pair lasted not two days. My second pair lasted just under months. So much for these being inexpensive - you (don’) get what you (don’t) pay for.
I was hoping for the best but received the worst. The headphones are poor quality all the way around. The buttons are cheap to the feel and horribly placed. You basically have to contort your arms to use any of the button functions. In addition the noise cancellation is basically useless
The Good: - Comfortable on my melon head - look great to me - in the car, noise cancelling is surprisingly effective. To the point that I was beginning to worry that I wouldn't hear if the car began to make any strange noises. ANC seems to improve both music and phone calls. - battery life is fantastic
The Bad: - You like bass? Because holy cow, these are bassy. Ridiculously bassy. EQ is required on every music source. Maybe that's what people want, I don't know, but I want balance across the frequency spectrum. - The app is...there is no app. It's worse than useless. Which means you can't access some features. - Very little support or user manual info in English. - The auto-pause "face recognition" feature is cool, but rarely works, and when it works it's too sensitive. - Here's the biggie for me: BT pairing with my laptop (Dell XPS) doesn't recognize the mic, which means I cannot use these for videoconferencing or IP phone calls. Other devices (eg phone) use the mic just fine, and other headphones use the Dell fine. This is a deal-breaker. To make it worse, when I use a program that access the mic, the audio stops working altogether.
These are great for travel by car or air. In situations that have a lot of low-frequency noise, the over-the-top bass is less annoying, and the ANC is nice. But they're useless for desktop/video conferencing.
At the time of my purchase, these are some of the few reasonably priced headphones with Bluetooth5 and USBC. They are comfortable with soft ear pieces that are large enough to fit over my ears without pinching. The clamping force is not too tight and they sit well positioned on top of the head. The mids are not easy to hear. This makes the music sound flat. This is really noticeable when using bluetooth connectivity. It sounds much better when wired. I just wish the mic worked when in wired mode. The itself mic could use some improvement. The voice on calls is tinnier than I had hoped. High quality feel to the materials, and the head on/off pause/play feature is so cool. Definitely worth the price. I'm a solid vote for Bluedio. There's room for improvement, they are doing things right at the price point.
The cons: The noise cancellation leaves much to be desired. There's also significant sound leakage- the person sitting next to you is going to be able to hear your music and phone calls. The pros: they're extremely comfortable, and the play/pause feature when removing and replacing the headphones is a really nice perk. Wouldn't purchase again, but if you're not bothered by my peeves, they're probably an OK set to own.
Sound quality is decent. More weighed towards low frequency. Difficult to pick up nuances. Noise Canceling is average, it is helpful if you want to reduce some noise but still be aware of what is going on around you. I do have issues with headset occasionally disconnecting from my Iphone and pausing video or audio that is playing. It gets annoying after a while, and I stopped using it with that type of phone. Battery life is lower than rated. Overall would not recommend unless it was available for a supercheap price. The start on voice indication is very annoying, would be nice to turn it off completely or switch to a tone.
