The Review

Let’s start off with the video unboxing:

 

The WhizBeats come in a nice looking box with a picture of them on the front and information on the back about them.

Once you get everything unpacked you’ll find a cloth carrying bag, the headphones, user guides, microUSB cable and extra bud covers and stabilizers.

The headphones themselves are made of plastic and are very lightweight coming in at under 1/2 an ounce. They have a rated talk time of eight hours and a standby time of up to 180 hours. They are marked R and L on the fronts so you know which is which.

The headphones come already installed with medium size bud covers and stabilizers, but you can swap them out for either the small of large that are in the package.

On the back side of the right headphone is the microUSB charging port and it’s behind a rubber door to keep the elements and sweat out.

On the bottom you’ll find the multi-function button that does various things like answer/end calls and play or pause your music.

On the top edge is a large thin button that is the volume controls and skip track control. The power button is very small and it’s actually located under the earbuds on the flat inner surface of the headphone.

Next to the power button is a tiny LED that lights up red for charging then turns green when charged. The LED also lights up green or blinks red and green for pairing mode.

I tested the WhizBeats with my HTC One M7 Android phone and with my PS Vita.

Usage:

As far as connecting over Bluetooth, I had no issues connecting to either the HTC One or my PS Vita. I did have a problem with the NFC function though as it didn’t seem to work. The HTC One has NFC built-in and I tried over and over again to get it to work with the WhizBeats but the phone couldn’t see the headphones. Not sure what’s going on there at all.

The controls worked fine with the phone for music and calls but they felt a bit weird and the buttons are very small and it takes a while to really get accustomed to finding and using them.

To adjust the volume you just press on either side, up or down. To skip tracks you have to long press the volume buttons and it takes a second or two for it to actually work or register. To reject a call you need to press the volume down button for about 2-3 seconds.

To play and pause music you have to long press the multi-function button. A short press of the button is for answering and ending calls. You can also redial the last number by double pressing the multi-function button.

I should also note these headphones talk to you. It will say things like ‘your headset is connected’ or ‘your headset is disconnected’ and when you get a call it will say ‘call from’ and then tell you what the number is if it’s not blocked of course.

 

Sound Quality:

I’ll be honest the sound quality is not that good overall. There isn’t much bass in these and what bass there is isn’t deep, it’s more flat like a dull thud almost. There also isn’t much treble either, the highs are virtually non-existent. All in all the sound is hollow, for lack of a better word. The sound, it’s like you’re farther away or in a long hallway maybe, it’s hard to describe, almost muffled maybe but not.

I’m not very happy with the sound quality at all, but they’re not every expensive either so I guess that’s to be expected.

 

Comfort:

I can say these headphones are very comfortable for long term usage. The stabilizers are a soft silicone and they hold the headphones in your ears very well. They are lightweight and after a while you don’t even notice them in your ears.

 

Conclusion

I have to say I’m not exactly thrilled with the sound quality of the SoundWHiz WhizBeats headphones it’s rather hollow but then I am accustomed to using headphones that cost about ten times as much as these do.

For the price these aren’t bad as long as you don’t expect high end sound quality from them.

They do work, they’re easy to pair via Bluetooth but I did have a small issue with the NFC function as it didn’t seem to work with my phone.

 

Pros:
+Very lightweight
+Voice prompt caller ID
+Water/sweat resistant
+Comfortable fit
+Decent battery life

Cons:
-Sound not that good overall
-NFC not quite working
-Buttons are very small
