MEElectronics Rumble AF80 Bluetooth Headphones Review
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
Listening to your music on the go is hardly a new trend, we’ve had portable audio since the introduction of devices such as the Sony Walkman; the biggest change in recent years is easily with how we listen to music on the go. Mobile devices act as MP3 players, they offer music streaming services, gaming, movies and of course the least used feature on most people’s phones these days, actual phone calls. Sure all these things can be enjoyed to a certain extent via the built-in speakers and microphones on your device, but for music, movie and games, that may not be the ideal solution. There are many audio solutions on the market for mobile products, such as speaker docks, headphones, headsets and more that all offer ways to expand your audio experience. The latest headset from MEElectronics is packed full of features that make it very appealing to a wide range of users. The headset features wireless technology via Bluetooth, NFC connectivity, a built-in microphone, rechargeable battery, multimedia controls and more!
MEElectronics may not be the first name you think of when purchasing a new headset, but they’re quickly earning a good reputation for creating great quality products and I’m very excited to have my first review sample from them. I’m eager to see how this headset performs and to see if the headset lives up to the hype, so let’s get right to it and see what MEElectronics have to offer to the mobile audio market.
In the box, you’ll find everything you need to get you started. There’s the headset (obviously), a protective pouch to keep them scratch free when not in use, a 3.5mm cable for backwards compatibility with older phones, as well as with none wireless ready devices such as portable games consoles and media players. Finally, there’s also a USB to Micro-USB cable which can be used to charge the built-in battery.
The overall design of the headset is sleek and stylish. The headset itself is quite slender and lightweight, which should bode well for prolonged usage and comfort.
The glossy black exterior of the headband is backed with a warm red, while the ear cups are trimmed with a silver highlight. There’s a microUSB port on the right ear-cup for the charging cable and an optional 3.5mm jack on the left for the AUX cable.
All the major controls are located directly on the side of the ear cup, giving you quick and easy access to the multimedia controls.
The headband has been given a soft rubber coated padding for extra grip and comfort; it shouldn’t slip off your head while walking around. The ear cups are a little small, but they come with a thick and soft padding that feels very comfortable to the touch; they’re designed to be on-the-ear when worn, rather than over-the-ear.
Helping to provide a better fit are the ear cup mounts, a small pivot at the back allows them to move a few degrees in each direction, so they should feel comfortable on any head shape.
The headband is expandable and foldable; just pull the drivers in and they’ll fold up nice and small; this makes them easier to fit into the included protective pouch.
Overall a very stylish set of headphones, a nice mixture of glossy finishes, soft finish padding and unobtrusive control switches.
