The August EP650 Bluetooth Headphones offer excellent sound and they give you a lot more freedom than when getting tangled up with wires. If you’ve not tried wireless headphones you’ll be surprised at just how much better it is not to have a wire trailing down and getting in the way of things, and you’d certainly be happy to do some exerciser while wearing these.
Setup of the August EP650 headphones was really simple, the instructions tell you everything you need to know. Once paired your device (in my case a mobile phone, but could easily be a tablet, laptop or PC) can automatically reconnect without needing to go through the pairing process again.
The design is very lightweight considering it contains a battery. They are very comfortable and they don’t move around much at all. They can fold down for storage/transportation and the red colour (other options available) looks fantastic.
Perhaps the most important thing is that the sound quality is excellent. Music has a nice depth to it and the headphones offer a good bass as well, no tinniness from these cans!
Controls are simple, the August EP650 headphones have just 5 buttons on the right hand ear. You can play/pause, adjust the volume, and skip back and forwards. The play/pause button also acts as a call answer button and is easy to find when wearing the headphones, however the other controls are easy to miss and could do with a small bump so you know you’re on a control button.
If you plan on using these as wired headphones you can do so with the included 3.5mm to 3.5mm wire. They’re charged via USB and the charging cable is also included.
Bluetooth range is also excellent, far better than expected. As a test the paired mobile was left downstairs and the music was still playing when the headphones were taken upstairs, so you’ll have no issue if you pop you phone in a bag away from the headphones.
Great set of headphones for the price, and if you’ve never had bluetooth headphones before I think you’ll love the wires free experience.
