GoGroove BlueVibe DLX: Bluetooth headphone for those on a budgetThere's nothing terribly special about the GoGroove BlueVibe DLX, but it's an affordable wireless Bluetooth headphone that's got some positives.
I'm David Carnoy and I'm here with the GoGroove BlueVibe DLX, a generically styled wireless on your headphone that you can pick up online for an affordable $80. Patently middle of the road, it's the classic definition of a product that's good enough. It looks okay, folds up into an included protective carrying case that's pretty nice. And delivers reasonable performance, particularly when it comes to battery life, which clocks it around 14 hours. To their credit, the headphones are fairly comfortable and seemed durable enough, though they do feel a little too plasticy and make a crinkling noise when you bend the headband or adjust the headphones. They are volume in transport controls on either side of the right earpiece. You can also plug it in an included chord and use them as a wired headphone. As with all of these types of stereo Bluetooth headsets, they have an integrated microphone for making hands-free calls. Their sound is what I've come to expect from budget Bluetooth headphones. It's okay, but lacks the clarity and vibrance you get from more expensive premium Bluetooth models, which can come close to sounding like good wired headphones. For those with critical ears anyway, the BlueVibe DLX never lets you forget it's a Bluetooth headphone. In the end, there's nothing great about the GoGroove BlueVibe DLX. But there's also nothing terribly wrong with it. It does offer some appeal to those on a budget, looking for a wireless headphone. However, the only problem is, if you broke around Amazon, you'll find plenty of other products like it. Some of which cost a little less. I'm David Carnoy, thanks for watching.
