The GoodThe 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 BadHo-hum design and sound.
The Bottom LineThere'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.
An Editors' Choice winner in all respects, V-Moda's flagship headphones hit hard with...
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.
