First Look: Tenqa Remxd: $39 on-ear Bluetooth headphones

2:06 /

Budget wireless cans are ho-hum but a decent value nevertheless.

I'm David Carnoy, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here with the Tenqa Remxd Bluetooth headphones. Yes, these are wireless headphones and they are very inexpensive wireless headphones, they're $39. Usually, stereo Bluetooth headphones go for around $100. You will find some in the $50 range but $39 really is about as low as you get. This is an on-ear model and they have a pretty generic design. You've probably seen this design with Urbanears and there's a bunch of other headphones that have a similar design. So, pretty [unk] in terms of design. They're fairly comfortable. I found the headband a little bit large, I have a somewhat smaller head so they didn't fit me quite tightly enough but people with larger head shouldn't have a problem with them. They have a couple of nice features in terms of button placement is good, like other Bluetooth headphones, they serve as a headset for your cellphones so you can make calls with these. The Microphone is built-in to the left earphone. I wouldn't say the call quality was fantastic with these particularly outside but I definitely could make calls with them. These do have a built-in rechargeable battery and the battery life is good at around 16 hours. One of the small problems with these is they don't come with a standard micro USB charging cable, rather, it's a headphone jack that goes into a USB charger. So, if you lose that charging cable, you can't just grab a micro USB charger that you have for your phone for instance and use it with these headphones. That's a little bit of a problem. As for some of these are only okay, they're just not terribly dynamic sounding or terribly clear, the bass is there but just not a lot of punch to it. But you can't expect a whole lot for $39 Bluetooth headphones and these certainly sound fair for their price. So, all-in-all, the real headline here is the price point. These are a decent value for $39, not a great pair of headphones for that price but an okay pair of headphones for that price. And these are Tenqa Remxd Bluetooth headphones, thanks for watching.
