Cygnett PurePhonic Bluetooth Headphones

I've been using the PurePhonic Bluetooth Headphones from Cygnett for around 2-weeks now and I still can't fault this product. Ok... one fault... and this is really being very pedantic but the manual for the headphones were kind of squashed into the case. But that's the ONLY thing wrong with these awesome headphones! Great design, features, wireless and audio... end of story!

Apart from being wireless thanks to Bluetooth, the PurePhonic headphones are very comfortable to use, especially for long audio sessions and the sound quality is quite decent for the price. The reason for the comfort are the soft ear pads that gently cup your ears and to some extent blocks out external sound. It's almost like you are not wearing any headphones at all.

In terms of testing, I tested this product on my iPhone 4S and iPad Mini via the Bluetooth capabilities of these two devices. Pairing the PurePhonic headphones to any Bluetooth device is quite simple and this is achieved by enabling Bluetooth on your smart device. Firstly, you need to power up the headphones and this is done by simply holding down the multi-function button (MFB) on the right speaker for 3 seconds until the blue light goes on. Finally you just pair the headphones on your smart device and voila... pure audio and wireless bliss!

The headphones also remember the last device it was paired too so if you have multiple Bluetooth devices, you need to repair. However most people will suffice with just one device. Unless you're a techno junkie or someone who reviews products, I don't think this will be an issue! Cygnett also recommend that you charge the headphones before use which takes around 2 1/2 hours via USB. The USB cable is also a little tight when you connect your headphones to it.

What about the looks? The headphones look quite spunky! As they are collapsible headphones, they measure around 18cm by 10cm and fit snugly into the supplied case. Once opened, they look like any full-size headphones. On the right of the headphones, you find all your controls and features.

This includes;

  • Built-in Microphone

  • Multi-function button (MFB) which doubles as a power button and navigating your calls

  • Navigation of music (next song, pause/play & last song)

  • line-in jack

  • LED indicator

  • Volume up/down

Although the buttons are quite tiny on the right speaker, you will easily remember where they are after using them for awhile. The biggest "wow" factor of these headphones however is the audio quality. It was quite smooth through the headphones.

Whether I was playing a game such as Batman Arkham City on the iPad or listening to music on my iPhone 4S, the audio quality streamed featured good levels and some decent bass. In essence, you can be as far as 10 metres away from your Bluetooth device to use this product as well.

 

If you have a Smartphone like an iPhone, you can even take phone calls with the headphones as it features a microphone. By including a microphone, this allows the user to quickly take calls and once finished, you can go back to gaming or listening to music. Answering calls is done through the amazing MFB which even allows you to reject a call or mute it!

Final Thoughts?

So this is the end of 2012 and according to the Mayan Calendar, the end of the world? Well if it is <which I seriously doubt it is>, than the Cygnett PurePhonic Bluetooth Headphones are the best headphones that I've reviewed all year. Not only are they affordably priced but the headphones produce some extraordinary audio quality.

Brilliant!
