MicroBooms Review

Bluetooth headphones have slowly risen in popularity in recent years, especially after Apple removed the earphone jack from its iPhone. One problem, however, has been that Bluetooth headphones and earbuds are typically more expensive than their wired counterparts. With MicroBooms, we are told that this pair of Bluetooth headphones retains the high quality consumers expect from modern earbuds, but without the high cost.

The earbuds are connected via a small wire that is designed to hang around your neck. A small control panel on the cord allows you to adjust volume, answer calls, and start or stop music. There is also a built-in mic that allows you to answer phone calls without having to touch your phone. These are all pretty standard features, which is actually a good thing, because consumers would expect no less, even for an inexpensive pair of Bluetooth earbuds.

While not in use, MicroBooms are designed to hang around your neck with the two buds magnetically clasped together. Although there are earbuds on the market without any wires at all, I am not a fan of that design because they are easier to lose. Thus, the connecting wire on this product is a better option in my opinion.

MicroBooms are charged via USB and can deliver about 8 hours of playback time, although this will vary based on how it is used, and potentially by the temperature in which it is used and stored.

The sound quality of MicroBooms should be sufficient for most consumers. You may not get the quality of a good pair of Beats headphones, but you also won’t pay the cost of those. Overall, MicroBooms covers most of the essential bases and delivers a product that’s about right for its price point. I think for $30, this is a solid offering, especially for those who don’t expect too much for a pair of earbuds in this price range.

Alternatives

Despite what the commercial implies, not all wireless Bluetooth earbuds are highly expensive. Take, for example, this best-selling set by Senso, which costs about the same as MicroBooms, when shipping costs are considered. That product has nearly 15,000 reviews as of this writing. This set of Bluetooth headphones is actually less expensive, less visible, and sports high consumer ratings, although it is only a single earbud.
