Workout headphones is a competitive space in the tech world. With so many options out there, it might be hard to pick ones that will work for you. The S8 headphones from WRZ come with two different fits: workout and leisure. Basically, the ear hooks come off which gives it a less secure but more comfortable feel when you wear them. They also have a magnetic attachment so when you take them off temporarily they don’t slide off or go anywhere when you’re not using them. On top of all that, these headphones are also IPX 6 waterproof, meaning they can take a lot of sweat and splashes without dying. Audio sounds really sharp on these headphones and although the bass isn’t too strong, they canceled out a lot of the noise around me.
Sound and Connectivity
The WRZ S8 headphones connected easily to my phone and didn’t suddenly disconnect after days of testing. They get pretty loud, but not as loud as other headphones. To be fair, my eardrum is probably much happier with that fact since I tend to blare them in the gym. It does make a beeping sound when you hit maximum volume that interrupts what you’re listening to, but that’s potentially a safety reminder. You have the option to connect them to two devices at once, which is nice if you switch between devices often. One thing I did notice is that even though they connect quick, it says “Connecting” through the earbuds instead of “Connected”. Not too big of a deal, but it did make me think that it was struggling to connect. It also struggled to connect to my computer, but my computer is also over 10 years old.
Comfort of the WRZ S8 Headphones
The earbuds have C-shaped ear hooks to stay in your ear which are removable for when you’re not working out. I haven’t seen that on a lot of headphones before, so I enjoyed the two options. The C-shaped ear hooks aren’t the most comfortable, but when I was in the gym I did notice that they stayed in the whole time so they serve their purpose.
Battery and Bluetooth
The battery on the WRZ S8 can last for up to 10 hours with 240 hours of standby time. So far, I’ve been using them for over 10 hours but I don’t have my volume up too high. The cover over the charging port isn’t too secure, so just make sure you push it in hard so it doesn’t fall out, especially if you plan to sweat or run through the rain.
These headphones come with a carrying case that’s about the size of a hockey puck. It’s small and easy to carry anywhere. The control panel works great (something I can’t say for most earbuds), and the volume up and down also will change your songs back and forth if you push and hold the button. The mic quality was only decent, and you’ll have to hold it close to your mouth for the other person to hear you clear. Personally, I rarely use my headphones for phone calls, but that’s just something to note if you plan to make a lot of phone calls.
