Ever seen something online and said “that is way too cheap to be any good”. Yah me too, but I decided to start wasting some money to put these things to the test to see and hopefully help you in the process with thrifty buying decisions.
Enter the iJoy Logo bluetooth headphones. Clocking in at $16.99 the bar was set low. We aren’t going to go into details about ohms or compare them to brands like Bose since that would be just silly. With that said believe me when I say you will be impressed given the price tag on these.
Lets talk about the functionality. Outside of the normal bluetooth connectivity you also get a 3.5mm headphone jack for those time the battery may die on you. You have a track forward/backward buttons that also double as volume buttons when pressed and held. The play button also doubles as the call pickup/end button. Then you have your mute button.
Here is where I was shocked, they also included a mini SD card slot. Ever go running and didn’t want to bring your phone or just wanted to be untethered for any reason? Well you can with these, just load up the memory card, slide it in and you are all set.
Last but least they have a built in EQ. This gives you the ability to select 1 of 6 different selections based on what you are listening too. I found this to be a step above all others at this price point (and even some at higher price points).
Next on our list was build quality. Lets keep in mind these only cost $16.99. They are an all plastic build but in their defense they due feel good in the hand and do not feel cheap. I cannot speak to how the durability over time will hold up but for price even if they only last 1 year you can say you got your monies worth. The adjustable head piece so far holds in place as you would expect it to. On the lower end headphones I have noticed the adjustors typically loses tension and slides on its own, not here yet.
Finally the sound quality. Compared to my daily drivers the DNA Monster, I was satisfied. I would even go as far to say I couldn’t tell the difference with a slight difference in the deepness of the bass, but this was slight.
Who are these for? Anyone on a budget cannot go wrong. Anyone looking for cheap (but good) pair of headphones for travel or vacation (if they got lost, so what you are only out $16.99).
I would recommend these to my mother, but keep in mind if budget isn’t an issue there are much better options out there for you. If you are interested and want to help us out use the affiliate link below so we can keep doing reviews like these.
