Play X Store Stereo Headphones Review 2017
- Finalist for Best Bluetooth Earbuds 2017
The rise of wireless Bluetooth headphones was always inevitable. The challenges that were once faced by wireless headphone have since been overcome, and the market reflects this. Wireless headphones were once associated with poor sound quality, and oh how this have been addressed. Modern day wireless Bluetooth headphones have gone leaps and bounds in terms of sound quality and design. Depending on preference wireless speakers are usually produced in either earbud or over ear forms. Many have associated over ear headphones with comfort over earbud headphones, but things have changed. Earbuds provide the benefits of being lightweight, small to store whilst being able to produce high-quality sound equal to over ear headphones unlike before.
