Vomelon V6 Bluetooth Headphone Review

I’ve been dying for some bluetooth headphones for a while. I absolutely hate when I’m in the gym and I get my arm caught in the cord, especially if it means that I unplug the headphones. So, I was super excited to try out Vomelon V6 Bluetooth Headphones.

Let’s start with the positive. I loved the sound quality of the headphones. It was crisp and crystal clear. Also, they’re get a good range. I left my cell in the living room and when to my bedroom, which is on the other side of my apartment, and barely had any break up. So, the 30 feet connection seems very accurate. I can definitely see me using them when I’m cleaning the house since my laptop speakers aren’t super loud.

What else do I like? Well, I love that the buttons for volume and prev/next are easily reached. I also love how easy it is to pair with devices. I hooked it up to both my laptop and phone in 5 seconds or less.

Now for the bad. And none of these are super bad, but just things I didn’t really like. For me, the headphones are slightly uncomfortable. This could just been my ear shape but neither ear pad size really worked for me.I wore them for a little over an hour and by that point I had to take them off. This isn’t really a huge deal because really all I’ll do is take off the ear pads from old headphone that I know are comfortable for me.

My other complaint is that the buttons can be rather sensitive. When I was using it with my laptop, I noticed that when I turned my head to the right, which is where the volume/skip buttons are, my song would try to skip. I did notice this as much when I used my phone, but it happened on multiple songs/every time I did it when hooked to the laptop.

You can receive calls as well as there’s a built on microphone. I tested it with family member and while she could hear me said I sounded like I was in a tunnel. I imagine this is how I sound on speaker phone as well. So, microphone is okay quality, but not stellar. Thankfully, I want these more for listening to music than talking, so it’s not a huge issue for me.

Final Verdict: Decent bluetooth headphones, especially for the price ($20). A few small complaints, but nothing too troubling.

N8 Headphones Review


My desk  at work is in an open area and very near the break room. Once upon a time this wasn’t a big deal, but over the last couple of months there’s been a lot more activity in the upstairs area. A lot of it comes from the break room, which frankly, that’s what break rooms are for. They’re a place where you can talk and relax. So, it’s not like I could be like “Hey, could you keep it down, I’m trying to work!” However, my inability to focus meant I needed to do something.

Enter N8 headphones. They’re listed as noise canceling, but since they don’t have active tech that more expensive pairs do. They do, however, have larger cushion which helps cut out the sound. I can no longer hear anything from the break room or people around me. In fact, there was a writers group meeting in the staff area and for the most part I heard little to no of there conversation. I used them all day today and it was like I was in my own little world. It was glorious.

But are they comfortable? They’re not bad. Admittedly, I’m used to earbuds so the over the ear is taking some getting used to. The first day they were extremely tight/uncomfortable, but with a little stretching/twisting of the band it got way better. Today was my 3rd day using them and after 4 hours of use I only had mild irritation. I’m assuming the more the cushions shape to my ears the better it will get. Nothing that would make you want to throw them into the trash because they’re painful, but I also can’t saying anything like “I don’t even notice I’m wearing them”.

Final Verdict: For $19, they’re not perfect, but for that price they’re pretty darn good. They’ve made work-life much easier, so for that alone they earn a thumbs up.

Note: I did receive this product at a discount for an honest review.
