If you’ve been following any of my posts for any length of time, you would know I’m a huge fan of headphones. I love to test all the different ones available and try to find the ones that fit my life the best. Listening to music while I work, in the gym, and when I walk my dog is one of my favorite things to do, so as you can imagine my standards for headphones is pretty high. Out of almost all the ones I’ve tried so far, these XFree headphones from Tribit are hands-down my favorite ones so far.
They’re incredibly comfortable, lightweight, soft, and the sound is great. This is even more impressive considering I’ve tried headphones that cost hundreds of dollars and these are under $50.
Sound and Connectivity
The sound on the Tribit XFree headphones is hands-down amazing. Bass is strong, voices come through strong, and the cup around the ear is perfect for listening to almost anything. They have 40mm sound stage drivers that give realistic and high-quality sounds. Instead of being built with active noise cancellation they’re built with passive noise reduction. This saves the battery life and also gives more of a real sound instead of that constant noise/pressure you get from noise canceling headphones. Even after a whole day of use, it never disconnects from the device I pair it with and it always connects immediately as soon as I turn it on.
Comfort of the Tribit XFree Headphones
These are some of the most comfortable over-ear headphones I’ve worn. Even after wearing them for a whole day of work, I barely notice my ears getting irritated by them. They’re also much lighter than some other over-ear headphones I own so they don’t weigh down my neck when I wear them for extended periods of time. They have an oil rubber surface, making them really soft to the touch.
Battery and Bluetooth
Compared to other headphones I’ve used, the XFree have an incredibly impressive battery life. I can use it for continuous days and then have to finally recharge. According to the box, it gets 40 hours of playtime but it feels more than that, but I also don’t have it at maximum volume all the time. Charging them takes quite a bit of time (about 4 hours), but the battery lasts so long I can’t really complain about that. One of my favorite features is that it includes a 3.5 mm cord so you can just plug it in if you don’t want to use Bluetooth or your battery dies. The one thing I’d change about these headphones is that the 3.5mm jack would be on the right vs the left side since that’s the side it’s on on my computer.
Using Bluetooth 4.1, I haven’t had a single disconnection from any of my devices. It stays paired up to 33 feet away, which for me is perfect when it comes to being able to move around my apartment without any issues.
For the calls, the microphone was pretty good. I wouldn’t say it was perfect, but much better than other over-the-ear headphones I’ve used in the past. They also fold up for easy transportation and you can also get the additional carrying case.
