Before proceeding with the SENSO Bluetooth Headphones Review, these relatively decent and very affordable headphones have been reviewed from 33,000 Amazon customers. More than 21 thousand customers have rate them with 5 stars and with an overall 4-star rating.
For a very affordable price, they offer quite a lot regarding build quality, sound, accessories, and looks. Let’s break it down.
The SENSO Bluetooth are basically earbuds with clips for that go around your ears attached and one cord that keeps them together. They are designed for active lifestyles. Can also serve a general purpose listening system for those who simply want to give up the 3.5mm audio jack. Honestly, despite that vague description, they’re quite attractive looking.
The comfort level on them is quite impressive. The earpieces have soft silicone/rubber hooks that slide over your ears to hold them firmly in place. The ear hooks are an important feature to have, especially for those with small ear canals. They fit quite nicely over my ears, they don’t pinch or anything like that, and after a while you hardly even notice them. Integrated to the earbuds are two ergonomic ear hooks that wrap your ears around and maintain the headphones firmly attached in the event that you choose to do an intense activity.
Apart from that, they are powered by a new, improved battery capable of lasting approximately 8-9 hours straight on a single charge. The battery includes a fast charge functionality, which brings it up to 100 percent in under 1.5 hours with a USB plug-in. If you’re active every day, just be certain to charge them and you won’t run into any issues.
Build quality feels good on them. They are quite durable and are able to survive plenty of drops. The clips don’t feel flimsy, and are quite comfortable. On top of that are rated IPX7 waterproof standard ensuring safeguarded against water immersion for 30 minutes.
One Final note, You can take calls on these too. It has a button to answer calls onto the clips and a built-in microphone. I was not thinking about using this feature initially, but I discovered it pretty useful.
The SENSO Bluetooth earbuds are also not really Wireless like the Apple AirPods, they have. They’re wireless in the feeling that you do not have to plug them in to your phone or tablet to get sound.
They might be a bit bigger than the true wireless and most expensive earbuds. However, if you’ve worn then you may rest easy knowing the SENSO Bluetooth earbuds offer something similar. Where the SENSO earbuds differ from the true wireless Apple headphones would be the silicone hints. They mould into the shape of your ear canal to block out sound whilst providing additional support.
For rotation on/off, controls are found on the base of the earpiece, with track and volume controls on the very top. The earbuds arrive with a water resistance rating that could withstand immersion. In use, this means it will withstand any quantity of sweat you can create, but the earbuds aren’t constructed for swimming.
SENSO also supplies a dual charging cable, a USB charging cable, a double port car charger and a carrying case to keep the safe when not in use.
For $20 price range the sound turned out to be much better than I hoped. The bass was nicely noticeable, definitely a positive surprise. The levels are surprisingly deep without distorting and kept a nice crisp sound even on songs with a lot of range. I was not expecting that at all, I figured the sound would only be passable.
Highs are pretty good as well, can definitely hear that treble. Clarity is iffy, a bit muddy but nothing that’s noticeable without trying to look for flaws. It’s very loud as well. An issue I was worried about was clarity and volume Maybe not crystal clear, but better than any earbuds I’ve ever used before.
I was pleasantly surprised at every aspect of these headphones’ quality. But don’t go into these expecting perfect hi-fidelity sound. With that said the audio quality is better than expected in most songs. Please take note, that these are not actually noise-canceling headphones.
Phone calls sound great as well. Actually much better than the speaker on my phone, which has caused me to swap over to these for important calls.
At the price range of $20, the SENSO Bluetooth earbuds absolutely live up to the hype. They earn every bit of their top rating on Amazon. Battery life is as good as it gets with eight hours on a single charge. Depending on your sport, whether that is running, biking, or hitting the gym they won’t fail you. The inclusion of Bluetooth 4.1 allowed me to leave my phone in the corner of the gym when I lifted weights and I never had any issues with an interrupted connection that many wireless earbuds of this size suffer from.
When it comes to sound, the performance is at least satisfactory. Bear in mind, I have listened to frequently and more than a hundred earbuds/headphones in my time wear products which cost upwards of $300. That did not change my overall satisfaction despite the fact that the mids are a little muddled and lack detail found in higher end headphones. They get loud and block out background noise which is essential for active style earbuds.
Why Should I Buy Them?
The SENSO Bluetooth earbuds are perfect for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money but want a lot of sound for their active lifestyles. The earhooks also provide stability and comfort where true wireless earbuds can loosen or fall out of your ears if you’re moving around making them some of the most comfortable wireless earbuds I’ve worn in a while. Battery life is superb for wireless earbuds of its size, and the inclusion of Bluetooth 4.1 means you won’t be interrupted with disconnections from your wireless device. Throw in a sweet lightning/micro USB cable, a nice carrying case and a dual port car charger, and you have a package that will hold its top spot on Amazon for a long time.
Overall, these are a great pair of headphones and it comes with many extras. The design is great, the sound is more than good, the comfort is awesome, and the price is well worth it. Highly recommend them for those looking to enjoy a nice audio experience while being active.
