Sound is something I have always known is important but only in the past decade have I noticed how different sound can be from one device to another. In my learning of the value of sound I was given the opportunity to review the Nivio BTH410 Stereo Bluetooth Headphones.

I did not know what to expect, as I have not had the need for a headphone/microphone combination. I am happy to say that the headphones were very comfortable on my head and unlike some headphones that are tight and make your ears hot, these did not. At one point I had put the headphones around my neck and it was not until I needed them again that I realized they were on me the entire time, I had forgotten they were there.
As I took them out of the box the first thing that I did was charge the headphones, The total charge time only took about 90 minutes, although the instructions advised it could be 2-3 hours. The headphones are able to charged almost anywhere on almost any device including car chargers, USB computer ports and the traditional wall charging method. The Headphones have an advertised 8 hour talk/use time and an advertised 200 hour standby time after they are fully charged.
The headphones store easily by folding down on each side, although over time with careless use these could snap apart, so snap them into place with care. If you are able to keep them open all the time and have the space, I would recommend doing this.
The biggest concern that I had was “pairing” the headphones, and I am happy to say that the process was simple and easy. I am not the most technical person and I had the headphones paired to my devices within 60 seconds or less, it was quick!
I did notice that when I really pumped up the volume to the maximum allowed there was a little noise distortion on the bass. The more bass heavy the more I heard the distortion. Other than that issue in the latter volumes, the sound was great with no distortion. I walked around my house with the headphones on and did encountered breaking up in the music when I got out of the “line of sight”. Depsite this, I was able to go about 30 feet way as long as I stayed within that “line of sight” point.
The compatibility of these range from VOIP technology to Skype, and works on most modern devices. The BTH410 headphones are able to remember up to 5 devices and upon start-up connects to the last device that they were connected to. The microphone was clear and each call I made I was told that I had never sounded better, with no background distortion.
I would recommend these to anybody who needs a good combo headphone and microphone set, that are compatible with most devices and are comfortable for computer gaming to jamming to music.
