If you like listening to music while you’re walking, running or otherwise exercising, you know what a pain it can be to deal with earbuds and the cord that must run down your body to connect to your smartphone. The Talon Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones fix this problem.
Talon Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones still have a short cord to connect the earbuds but this cord hides away neatly behind your neck where it doesn’t get in the way while you’re exercising. There is no cord to connect to your phone. Instead, the headphones connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to your smartphone (or tablet if you so desire).
Keeps outside noise to a minimum
The Talon Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones are billed as noise canceling and, while they don’t block out all outside noise, they do a pretty good job of keeping outside noise to a minimum. While listening to music at a regular volume, I could not hear the sound of my fingers snapping or my son talking directly in front of me. I could, however, hear the clapping of my hands and the sound of my dog barking. All in all, the listening experience was very pleasant.
What’s in the box?
The Talon Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones come with a charging cable and a 6 pack of eargels. You can expect around 4-6 hours of playing time in between charges and about an hour and a half to fully recharge the headphones.
Likes and dislikes
I like the sound quality of the Talon Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones. They weren’t tinny like most earbud style headphones and had a decent amount of bass for their size.
This may sound strange but I also like how the earbuds had clear “L” and “R” markings on them to distinguish between the left and right respectively. This may be unnecessary for some but I found it quite helpful.
The volume buttons are easy to use while wearing the headphones but I think the skip track buttons are backwards from what is stated in the user manual. I tried this several times to make sure I wasn’t going crazy. Holding down the volume up button is supposed to go to the next track and holding down the volume down button is supposed to go the previous track. I experienced exactly the opposite.
One minor dislike is that the power on/off button was difficult for me to press while wearing the headphones. I found it easier to power the headphones on before I put them on and power them off after I take them off. There’s a LED light on the earbud itself to let you know you’ve successfully powered them on or off.
