Bludio Victory Battery Life Question

Just received a pair of Bludio Victory Headphones, with utilizes 12 drivers (6 per side) with An Optical Cable input on the headphones.
It states that I should get up to 40 hours of using Optical only. I fully charged them before using them, and plugged them into the optical output on the back of my computer, with Blutooth power switch OFF. I only got a MAX of about 8 hours of total usuage! Which maybe I'm not understanding how the headphones utilize power? even though I only used them for 8 hours of gaming and listening to music, I did leave them plugged in to my computer, which runs 24x7? are the headphones using power even though no audio source is being used thru them, just from being plugged into my Optical out of the back of my computer ?? Or does that fall under standby which I'm supposed to get 1000 hours of usage ?

All good questions.

For the maker. But the hours per charge do swing wildly. The usual issue is you get less than what they tell you. This is either they fibbed or they were running it in the most economical way possible. Very low volumes. Push up the volume and I bet you can see a 10 to 1 reduction in play time.

As to plugged in all the time, a GOOD DESIGN is fine with that. But maybe designs are cheap so you are never sure.

I only found mention of 25 hours of battery time from a 650mAH battery. And since the volume and content matters, 8 hours may be correct.

Well when they were introduced in 2016 they were rated as one of the best Bluetooth headphones out there. they were originally over 300 dollars, and that was said to be a bargain back then, I would have to agree the sound is simply amazing using the 12 drivers, especially using the optical input, plus now they are running for 1/3 of their original price, that's is if you can still find them Wink
It seems though I am going to have to unplug the optical cable out of the headphones when not in use ;-( I really think its draining simply being plugged into a live computer, since the AMP and the DAC are built into them ;_( Just hope I dont wear out the connection over time Sad

That changes my view.

If it's years old stock the batteries do degrade over time. Some batteries were only rated at 300 cycles so old stock isn't helping us here.
