Me reviewing tech? I know right, but 2020 has proven many things can happen, so here I am reviewing some really good Bluetooth Earbuds.
Right on the back of the packaging FIII let’s you know what to expect from these Bluetooth/ Wireless Headphones: Up to 10 hours of battery life, up to 98% of digital active noise cancellation, Bluetooth capabilities up to 100ft, a magnetic clip to keep the buds together (allowing you to turn off Bluetooth and answer incoming calls), a soft and flexible kinetic cable connecting the earbuds, and noise cancelling ambient filters.
Now what the heck does all this mean? Well, I’m here to tell you through the mind of a non-tech savvy individual. I’m a complete stranger to Bluetooth. I’ve heard of it, but never gave it a go. I thought it would be too difficult to set-up to I stuck to my plug-in headphones/ earbuds. So here comes the opportunity to see how freakin’ easy it is to set up. All - if not a humongous portion of - cellphones today have Bluetooth technology. All you have to do is make sure the earbuds are in pairing mode which comes from holding down the only other button that aren’t the volume buttons down, until you hear a little jingle. Turn on Bluetooth on your phone, and click on FIIL Driifter DNC+. It helps to kind of click them at the same time, but it pairs in no time, and soon they work like regular earbuds. As for the 100ft thing? It works! I was listening to a YouTube video in the living room while my phone was on my bed! I couldn’t believe how crisp the sound remained as I moved around the house. You’ll know if you breach that limit though, as the sound will start fizzling in and out like a radio losing connection to a station. But you can still go a long way from your device before losing connection.
As for the battery life… that’s the only thing that disappointed me. It held it’s charge fairly well, but I use headphones for my phone constantly, so the fact that my constant use drained it quicker, was a bit disappointing to me. With me regular plug and go earbuds, I never had to worry about that, but the sound quality certainly outweighed the fact I had another thing to charge at night besides my cellphone.
Look. I was the kid that stuck with my CD walkman and shunned all my friends for having the iPOD. Of course, I eventually came around and had an mp3 player of my own. I evolve with the times… just slower than others, and it takes a good product to eventually convince me. And here we are. The FIII Driifter DNC Plus Wireless Headphones brought me to the Bluetooth side. It’s convenient, and the sound is amazing.
