[Amazon Canada] Taotronics ANC Bluetooth Over-Ears Headphones - $68

These have been priced on sale at $80 from $100 for quite a while, but today are on for $68.
I had been humming/ha-ing about them for a while.
I grabbed a pair for work a few weeks ago and have been relatively surprised by them.
The ANC works well. Charge last forever. I have a huge head and the fit comfortably (no pressure).
As for the sound, I'm good with them. They aren't as good as my studio M50x, but still pretty decent.
Have worked well on teleconference.
And latency for video is almost unnoticeable.
For the price, if I wanted another pair at home, I'd grab them.
Enjoy

I'm looking for something similar but don't need noise cancelling.
Important for me would be battery life and sound quality.
I love the Monoprice DJ headphones but they don't have bluetooth.

Any recommendation?

Looks to be standard pricing, on "sale" every other week with an "F" on fakespot and warning from Reviewmeta. Good luck with the purchase.

Sounds like the MPOW is a better one at B for FakeSpot.

I don't know if I would like to pay over $50.

Is there any over-the-ear bluetooth headphones with a proper mic that sticks out, that's not crazy expensive?

Can't speak to the bad review rating but these headphones are quite good for the price. I bought them for $80 in March and am still happy with that.

The sound is bright and up front with reasonable bass. The highs and lows are a bit muddy but not offensive. The high end is not as clear and refined as Philips SHP9500 (which is my daily driver) but, as a closed headphone, the TaoTronics does have more bass but is muddier than the Philips. Although, for casual listening of rock or pop music I do prefer the brighter/bassier sound of TaoTronics. But for acoustic or orchestral music the Philips is better (although Grado SR60 is still my fav for it's incredible soundstage). Note that this is with the noise cancellation enabled.

The above is a bit of apples to oranges since TaoTronic is closed while the Philips and Grado are open (I prefer open).

Back to the TaoTronic.
  • Despite being plastic the build quality feels solid and no issues after 7 months
  • The battery life is good (although I can't recall the lifetime) but charging for me is infrequent
  • The Bluetooth works well with easy setup and no disconnects
  • Comfort is good. Pads and headband are plush and soft. Despite being over the ear they do sit on my ears a bit (as opposed to the Philips which totally surround my ears) so that's not ideal for me. Much more comfortable than Monoprice Retro.
  • Noise cancellation is very good. Maybe not the best but worked very well (much better than Sony MDRZX110 if you're trying to go a lot cheaper but that's not saying much)
.

I used these exclusively for a month with quite a few long flights (10-17 hours) and the noise cancellation really helped and overall I had no issues. Not the best headphone but if it ticks a lot of boxes for you then I think it's a good choice.
