Kingyou Bluetooth Headphones Review

Categories Headphones and Speakers

Rating: 3.5/5

What I Like: 

  • Good overall audio quality with deep bass and clear treble
  • Super comfortable to wear and excellent fit
  • Good battery life
  • Includes a carrying case
  • Buttons are easy to press
  • Selfie function works great

What I Don’t Like:

  • Low-mids border on being muddy for some music genres
  • Voice prompts and confirmation beeps stay too loud even with the headset volume turned down
  • Occasionally will not automatically repair until the play button is pressed multiple times

Conclusion:  The Kingyou Bluetooth headphones are a nice package, with good looks and decent audio quality. What I like about this set compared to other Bluetooth headphones I own is that the actual earbud part is normal sized. This means they fit better and are overall more comfortable to wear. It is worth noting that the strange hanging control boxes were a bit odd to get used to at first, but since the weight is evenly distributed between ears I quickly forgot about them. Because the black ‘boxes’ are so big, they carry a larger battery than earbuds with the battery built right in to the ear and that battery does last quite long. I find that the button layout is a bit odd too, but it was easy enough to get used to. In terms of audio quality, this headset is overall very good with deep bass and rich mids. Music comes through clear at high volumes with little distortion. Their sound balance is best for electronic and pop music, as it is weighted towards bass tones, but for rock and classic the mid-low tones border on being muddy. Since the mid-low tones are emphasized occasional Bluetooth compression artifacts are audible in certain songs. That’s not to say the audio balance is bad, after all, sound quality is entirely personal preference. I find I do grab these headphones if I’m in a particular mood for heavy bass songs. After I listen to these headphones and get used to their balance, my reference set sounds hollow in contrast. Those who prefer bass-heavy headsets will find these a good choice as they don’t sacrifice too much treble to get that bass.
