Wireless Earbud Headphones
Cordless Earbud Headphone Reviews of the Sennheiser MX W1, Arriva and Audiovox



Wireless earbud headphones are not very common and are hard to find — but we've found three from Sennheiser, Arriva and Audiovox that are worth looking into.

Earbud headphones are very popular for portable devices like mp3 players and cellphones due to their high degree of portability.

The wireless feature in earbud headphones takes portability one step further by eliminating the need for wires.

There are different types of earbud headphones on the market.

Some may be regarded as cheap, others may be said to be expensive and yet others are said to be economical, providing good value for money spent when comparing price with available features.

Earbud headphones are easy to carry around and are especially good for use when travelling. Because of their lightweight, many users prefer using earbuds when exercising.

Most earbud headphones are regarded as a nuisance because they do not stay in place in the outer ear but this largely depends on the earbud brand and/or model.

Durability of earbud headphones in general is deemed to be poor but again, this depends on the model of earbuds as all headphones are criticized on their durability and performance.

Sennheiser MX W1

Sennheiser MX W1 Wireless Earbud Headphones
A typical example of wireless earbud headphones is the Sennheiser MX W1.

These headphones are digital wireless headphones that communicate over a digital link which ensures that you can enjoy music without the hassle of wires.

The entire wireless headphone system comes in box which contains the earphones, a miniature transmitter which can be connected to a music device and a carrying case.

The carry-on case comes with a built-in quick charge feature that can recharge batteries up to three full charges while on the move.

This earbud headphone utilizes "Kleer technology" which is basically a digital wireless transmission of high fidelity sound that transmits directly to the earphones.

Kleer technology enhances sound quality and sounds from these wireless earbud headphones are crisp and clear ensuring that even the tiniest sound details can be heard.

These wireless earbuds are easy to set up as all you have to do is plug in the transmitter and activate the headphones. These headphones provide a transmitting range of up to 40 feet before any sound distortion is heard.

Battery life and average time duration when charging the batteries are low and long respectively. These earbuds provide amazing sound for a wireless headphone and are very comfortable on the ears.

These earbuds stay put when fitted in the ears and support extended usage as they are very comfortable.

Their lightweight design also ensures that you can use them for long periods without feeling the urge to remove them.

The Arriva cordless earbuds make workouts and household chores more enjoyable and worthwhile without wires dangling around and trailing you while you work. They are designed to be lightweight and comfortable but solid.

Sound quality from this earphone is good but audiophiles are advised to look elsewhere for more superb audio quality.

This pair of earbud headphones is a great accessory for the iPod shuffle but limits usage as many audio devices may not be compatible.

Overall they are good entry-level cordless earbud headphones that serve a lot of functions.

Audiovox Acoustic Research Headphones

Audiovox Acoustic Research ARWH1 Wireless Earbud Headphones
The Audiovox Acoustic research headphones are Bluetooth 2.0 enabled headphones.

They are designed for use with most mobile phones and are capable of displaying visual information which include; the status of the battery, call alerts and caller ID which are shown as icons on the main screen.

These headphones can be paired with most audio and video devices as far as they support Bluetooth technology.

This headphone is ultra light and its video display unit can be carried separately in a bag when necessary.

This headset comes with a built-in microphone, a charge cord, a lapel clip and quality earbud headphones. The video display unit has a 3.5mm audio jack which can work with different types of earphones.

Sound quality is improved with features such as bass boost, noise suppression and echo cancelling. However, the sound quality from these earphones is not as profound as that produced from wired headphones and will not satisfy most audiophiles.

Summary

Earbud headphones can be both a blessing and a nuisance.

Most of them that come with the wireless feature are not really as efficient in sound production and quality as their wired counterparts.
