Review

MEElectronics Air-Fi AF32 Bluetooth Headset (Red/Black)

After I favorably reviewed the Creative WP-350 Bluetooth headphones ($79.99), the folks over at MEElectronics contacted me to tell me that they also had a pair of $79.99 stereo Blueooth headphones, the Air-Fi AF32, claiming better performance than the Creatives.

Like Creative, MEElectronics is known for being a value brand that delivers good bang for the buck, so I expected the AF32s to be good -- and they are. They feature a comfortable on-ear design with padded red earpieces and a glossy black finish on the band. They seem pretty well built and the band is nicely padded at the top. One small gripe I had is that while the headphones fold up, they don't fold completely flat so it doesn't sufficiently shrink their footprint when you do break them down. Regardless, a simple canvas carrying case is included for storage.

Aside from that criticism, they do get high marks for comfort level, even more so than the Creative WP-350s. I had no problem wearing them on a 30-minute commute every day to and from work. They feature a similar fit to the Sennheiser HD 238i headphones (a non-Bluetooth model), but they will make your ears a little steamy on warmer days.
