GoGroove BlueVibe DLX Bluetooth headphones review: An affordable, if unspectacular, Bluetooth headphone

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.

Their sound is what I've come to expect from budget Bluetooth headphones. It's OK, but lacks the clarity and vibrancy you get from more expensive premium Bluetooth models (the Harman Kardon BT, for example), which can come close to sounding like good wired headphones. For those with more critical ears anyway, the BlueVibe DLX never lets you forget it's a Bluetooth headphone. There's a decent amount of bass, but it's just not all that tight and the sound seems a little canned (read: the opposite of open).

The headphone folds up and ships with a protective carrying case. Sarah Tew/CNET

Conclusion There's nothing great about the GoGroove BlueVibe DLX. But there's also nothing terribly wrong with it. It offers some appeal to those on a budget looking for a wireless headphone. However, the only problem is that if you poke around Amazon, you'll find plenty of other products like it, some of which cost a little less.
