CNET Editors' Rating

The Good The GoGroove BlueVibe DLX is relatively comfortable on-ear wireless headphone that folds up into an included protective carrying case. It offers good battery life (14 hours) and comes with a three-year warranty.

The Bad Ho-hum design and sound.

The Bottom Line There's nothing terribly special about the GoGroove BlueVibe DLX, but it's an affordable wireless Bluetooth headphone that will be "good enough" for people on tighter budgets.

  • Sound quality 6.0
  • Value 7.0

The GoGroove BlueVibe DLX is one among several generically styled wireless on-ear headphones that you can pick up online for an affordable price (around $80). Patently middle-of-the-road, they're the classic definition of a product that's "good enough." They look OK, fold up into an included protective carrying case that's pretty nice, and deliver reasonable performance, particularly when it comes to battery life, which clocks in at around 14 hours, depending on your volume level.

To their credit, the headphones are fairly comfortable and seem durable enough, though they do feel pretty plastic-y and make a crinkling noise when you bend the headband or adjust the headphones. GoGroove does offer a three-year warranty on the product.

The headphones have volume and transport control (pause/play, skip track forward/back) buttons on either side of the right earpiece. You can also plug in a cord (included) and use them as a wired headphone. And, as with all these types of stereo Bluetooth headsets, they have an integrated microphone for making hands-free calls and a call answer/end button.
