It seems that lately no matter where i go when I’m out (subway, road, gym) i see quite a few people listening to music with large wired headsets connected to their smartphones so i can't help but to wonder just how comfortable they feel. Personally up to this day i only used wired and wireless stereo earphones/earsets when i wanted to listen to music while on the go without becoming annoying to people around me and i can't say that i ever felt like wanting something more. True volume and bass levels always were two very important issues i wish could be resolved but when using earphones it's quite obvious that you put portability over audio perfection. Well it seems that our friends over at Jabra have been working on the two issues i mentioned since they just released what is perhaps the best wireless headset I’ve used to date, the REVO Wireless.
GN Netcom, led by the Jabra brand, continues to build on its standing as one of the world’s leading and fastest growing suppliers of hands-free communications solutions. With approximately 875 employees and sales offices around the world, GN Netcom develops manufactures and markets a broad range of wireless headsets for mobile users and both wireless and corded headsets for contact center and office-based users. GN Netcom’s business activities also include its original equipment manufacturing (OEM) business to a wide range of global customers including mobile phone, PC and PDA manufacturers.
Jabra actually released two versions of the REVO headset to cover all segments of the market, the wireless version which we have here that can also be used as wired via the supplied 3.5mm/USB cables for use with smartphones, tablets, MP3/4 players and PCs and a wired version which obviously just lacks Bluetooth connectivity (if you don't need a feature why not save some cash?). Both versions are made by extremely durable materials (aluminum), have 40mm drivers (32 Ohm/20Hz-20KHz) offer somewhat unique touch controls, feature memory foam ear cups, dual noise-cancelling (Noise Blackout) microphones and a foldable design but the wireless version also features NFC (Near Field Communication) which makes pairing with compatible devices extremely easy. So on paper the REVO Wireless pretty much offers things we've only seen with very expensive professional studio headphones but we're here to see if it actually delivers for real.
