What do high-tech smartphones and old-school boomboxes have in common? They both feature headphone outputs and they’re both used by people to blast music in public. The new Aluratek ABH01F Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headphones enable you to listen to music privately on either kind of device and they can also be used as wireless stereo headphones and for chatting on the phone and on the Internet. They give you the option of going wireless with your Bluetooth-enabled electronics and wired with everything else. You can switch quickly between phone calls, music playback and chatting through Skype, AIM, Gmail, Windows Live Messenger and Yahoo Messenger.
There are three “rocker” controls on the side of the right earcup. The controls let you adjust the volume, navigate your media, answer calls, play music, connect to devices and turn the headphones on and off. An internal Lithium-ion rechargeable battery gives them up to ten hours of non-stop music and chatting time and up to 100 hours of idling time. An included cable lets you charge the internal battery easily though a USB port and an included 3.5mm stereo audio cable is included for connecting to non-Bluetooth equipped devices. A nearly invisible built-in microphone enables you to talk to callers and chatters (who will likely appreciate how clear your voice will sound).
These headphones are useful at home, but their folding design also makes them good for use when you’re out and about. They feature Bluetooth Class 2 +EDR, and support A2DP for the wireless stereo link to your devices. You can roam up to 33 feet (10 meters) away from your Bluetooth device without going out of range and if you have a bunch of Bluetooth-enabled gadgets, the ABH01F’s will remember up to six of them for quick and easy connection. These are comfortable, lightweight headphones with padded ear cushions that feel nice and help to block out ambient noise. They’re a single pair of headphones that can do it all; a gadget to interface with all of your gadgets (and your antiquated stereo equipment).
