#IFA2017 – While wireless headphones aren’t exactly new, what seems to be the trend these days are wireless earbuds, where these are “true” wireless headphones that do not sport any cables whatsoever, unlike headphones like the BeatsX which still have some cables. In fact throwing their hat into the ring is Philips who has debuted the BASS+.
The BASS+ True Wireless Headphones as you can see in the photo above are a set of wireless earbuds that seems to be similar in concept to some of the other earbuds we’ve seen debut at IFA 2017, like the JBL Free and the Beoplay E8. However one of the main differences is in its size, where the BASS+ earbuds are bigger because according to Philips, shrinking it down means compromising on sound. As a result the BASS+ will pack 8.2mm drivers in each ear that as its name implies, will allow for “big, bold bass”.
Whether or not that is true is unclear since we have yet to test it ourselves, but if you are after something a bit more bass-y, then perhaps these earbuds could be worth your consideration the next time you’re out shopping. Philips is also promising a battery life of about 6 hours and its accompanying case promises one full charge, meaning that in theory you should get about 12 hours of use.
The Philips BASS+ is priced at $130 which is cheaper than some of the competition out there, so do keep an eye out for it if it sounds like something you might be interested in.
