Audiophiles might argue that wireless headphones aren’t good if you want to experience the best audio quality. This is because it is believed that because it is wireless, that somewhere along the way quality is dropped. However if you’re not too fussed and don’t think you can tell the difference, JVC has two new wireless headphones for you.
The company has recently announced the HA-SBT5 Bluetooth on-ear headphones and the HA-EBT5 splashproof Bluetooth sports headphones. The former will be the larger of the two, but if you prefer headphones as opposed to in-ear headphones then this might be a more comfortable fit for you.
Do note that they are on-ear, so they will rest on your ears which for some might be uncomfortable. According to JVC, one of the headphone’s key selling points would be its weight at 5.5 ounces, so hopefully despite the fact that it is on-ear, it will still be a relatively comfortable fit. It features a bass boost function and a rechargeable battery that’s good for 10 hours. It also comes with a remote/mic that is compatible with mobile devices. It is priced at $59.95.
Now if you’d prefer something smaller and more compact, the HA-EBT5 might be for you. These are a pair of splashproof headphones and are designed for those who do a lot of physical activity. It features IPX4 certification and come with open-type earpieces, meaning that you can still hear ambient noises around you. Just like the HA-SBT5 headphones, these headphones will also come with a remote/mic. Its battery will be smaller and will offer 4.5 hours on a single charge and will be priced at $79.95.
