While waiting for the Fry’s Black Friday 2016 Ads to hit, we’ve taken a peek at some of the deals that Monoprice is currently running and came across an amazing deal on some bluetooth in-ear headphones. Such a good deal that one of our editors went to the Monoprice shop and picked up some headphones this morning to test them out.
Monoprice, if you don’t know, is the worlds most popular supplier of high quality, low cost cables and computer accessories. Seriously, if you need a microUSB cable for your cell phone for 72 cents they are your go-to shop. Monoprice is currently offering their highly-rated housebrand headphones at 25% off for a limited time. That makes these highly rated headphones less than $15. Over 50 Monoprice customers have rated these headphones an average of 4.5 out of 5 with an impressive nearly 90% of the customers saying they would recommend them to a friend.
I was so impressed by this deal that this morning I went down to their factory store and purchased them myself. Here’s my unbiased review of these headphones.
- The bass on these are impressive. The large driver really shines. If you like bass-heavy music then these are amazing headphones even at 2-3x the price. However, they aren’t too heavy that other types of music gets the clarity drowned out. I tried these headphones with a mix of hip-hop, rock, country, and about an hour of podcasts and they excelled in all areas.
- Pairing is dead simple and the buds include a play/pause button, volume and mic all built in. Charging is via standard microUSB and playtime is around 5 hours or so, more than enough for most workouts or chores.
- These headphones are lightweight and come with multiple tips for all ear sizes. I’ve got a weird ear shape and I usually run one bud size larger in my left ear than in my right. These come with 3 different sized tips so dialing in that fit is easy.
- Also included are sport clips for holding them on top of the ear if you are planning on doing some high-activity sports. A nice plus.
I really like these earbuds. I looked into some of the Bose earbuds that Best Buy is planning on doing for Black Friday for $39, but for less than half the price these were a no brainer.
