At the $70 price point there are a ton of options for Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones, and even if not class-leading, the Mixcder E9s offer a well-rounded package with decent performance overall.
The Blue Yeti is one of the better mics for beginner Youtubers. In this video, I put it head to head with my old setup, a $5 LAV mic I purchased off of Amazon several years back. Surprisingly the difference in audio quality under a perfect setup isn’t that great.
This speaker has decent sound and looks good. I compared it to my favorite speaker I’ve used in this price range (a UE Roll II that a friend owns) and found the audio in many cases was improved with slightly deeper bass and more volume. That being said with a design like this it is difficult for the speaker to produce the deepest bass tones (bass requires moving air and a flat body with a closed back does not have as much air moved) so if you’re looking for really low bass found in rap and some electronic music you’re gonna have to go for something a bit bigger.
The Archeer A109 is fully waterproof, but due to its small size the sound it produces isn’t a huge improvement over many modern smartphone speakers. If all you care about is adding more volume to your listening experience this speaker will be fine but my advice is to invest in something a bit bigger – especially if you want real bass.
This speaker has a respectable audio profile, with a decent mix of low, mids and highs. Due to its size restriction, it does not have much in the way of deep bass, however it makes up for that by boosting the mids. This has a tendency to muffle treble a little bit, but it provides a rich, warm tonal range especially at lower volumes. The awesome build quality combined with the decent sound make it quite a good speaker.
The AYL SoundFit Plus has decent performance, especially given its relatively cheap cost. The build quality seems solid enough that it will last some abuse and the sound is good, although the bass is a little soft for my tastes.
The Paww Wavesound 3 has decent sound, a gorgeous design and premium materials, but the metal build comes at a price: extra weight.
This adapter is a decent multi-use adapter with good audio quality and straightforward operation. Due to the fact that it does not turn on automatically when it receives power I would recommend it for use with a TV or home stereo over a car. When paired with a set of APT-x headphones there is almost no lag, making it good for watching movies and TV compared to other TX/RX devices I’ve tested.
Perhaps I received a bad copy, but the treble with this speaker is overemphasized and cuts like a razor. To achieve reasonable bass and mid-tones volume, the treble will be too high and almost painful. I was able to solve this problem by placing some thin foam between the speaker grill and the cones (the front grill just pops off) and after I did that they sound alright.
These Q12’s are some of the better performing budget Bluetooth headphones I’ve reviewed, with more bass than competing models. The best part is, even with more bass the treble comes through crisp and clear, striking a good balance between high and low tones. When combined with the decent build quality and battery life, these headphones make it onto my recommendation list.
