The Good Mpow's Cheetah wireless Bluetooth sports headphones are lightweight, water-resistant, and sound decent enough for how inexpensive they are. They're also equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, which makes pairing easy.
The Bad May not fit some people securely; generic styling; track skip forward/back button is too small and hard to use; battery life (5 hours) could be better.
The Bottom Line If you don't have a problem with their fit or finish, the Mpow Cheetah wireless sports headphones are a relative bargain at around $35 online.
Dirt-cheap Bluetooth sports headphones you'll either love or hate
Wireless Bluetooth headphones are becoming increasingly popular, but the good ones tend to run over $100, and some, like the highly rated but expensive go for close to $400.
I was intrigued then when Mpow contacted me about reviewing its Mpow Cheetah Sport Bluetooth 4.0 headphones, an in-ear "budget" model that sells online for about $35. The pitch was that not only were they lightweight and sweatproof, but they featured "crystal clear stereo sound and didn't fall off your head," even with a strong shake.
I was skeptical about their quality, but I'm always looking for good bargain headphones, so I figured I'd give them a shot.
