Is it just me or are the prices of headphones these days out of control? Don’t believe me? Search for the Beats Wireless Headphones or Bose Wireless Headphones on Amazon and you’ll find prices near (and over) $200. Add in noise canceling and the price jumps to over $300!
Yeah, I get that these headphones were probably designed by some NASA engineer and have superior sound, but sometimes I just want to listen to my music – or a podcast or audiobook – and I don’t care if I’m getting the absolute best sound quality possible.
I think of it like a steak. I love a high-quality, premium steak from a fancy restaurant as much as the next meat lover, but more often, I’m just as happy with the $15 Ribeye at the place down the street.
Tribit XFree Tune Headphones
The Tribit XFree Tune Headphones are the equivalent of that $15 ribeye. They strike a perfect balance between good sound quality and price. They have dual 40mm SoundStage drivers and a rich bass sound that, to me, are just fine for listenting to my music, podcasts and audiobooks. Are they going to hold up to the $350 noise canceling Bose headphones? Probably not. But the Tribit XFree Tune headphones only set me back about $45 so I still have money at the end of the month to buy groceries.
Wired or wireless
The XFree Tune headphones use Bluetooth to connect wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet. They also come with a 3.5mm audio jack and audio cable if you want to convert them to wired headphones. This is a great backup option when you still want to use the headphones after the battery has run out.
Speaking of battery life, you can expect a whopping 24 hours of play time before you need to recharge the headphones with the included USB cable and any existing USB power adapter (if you don’t have one, you can get one on Amazon).
Doubles as a smartphone headset
You may or may not want or need this feature but it’s good to know you have it if you do. If you have your headphones paired with your smartphone, you can use them as a headset when a call comes in. The microphone is built in to the headphones so you can wear them as you normally would and carry on a phone conversation. When you’re done with the call, you can right back to your music.
Comfortable and space-saving
I found the heaphones fit comfortably over my head and were easily adjustable. A bonus feature is that the Tribit XFree Tune Headphones fold down into a compact size which saves space in your travel bag.
