Happy Friday! I recently found out that I’ll be heading off to Dubai & India in just a few weeks for winter break! While I absolutely love traveling and seeing the world, I can’t deny that ten hours plane flights aren’t very fun. During my time on long flights, I love to watch movies and listen to music since I struggle with sleeping on planes. When Optoma reached out to me about sending me a pair of their NuForce BE6i Wireless Bluetooth earphones, I figured now would be the perfect time to test them out and see if they would be something I could take on my upcoming trip. After trying them out for the past fews day, I can confidently say that these earphones will be the perfect must-haves for my upcoming trip.
When I am not traveling, I pretty much live in the Library on my college campus. It can be really helpful to play music while you’re cramming for exams and finals [I personally love to listen to study music/alpha waves]. In the past, I have always just used the earphones that came with my iPhone. While they were sufficient, I always got annoyed with the fact that they were always in a tangled mess at the bottom of my backpack.
I really like that these NuForce BE6i earphones are wireless. So cheers to no more tangled cords (score!). They are also Bluetooth, and I found it VERY easy to synch them up with my phone in less than a minute. The Bluetooth capabilities are fantastic, and I found that I could still hear my music if I walked downstairs in my house without my phone. I’ve been dying to get my hands on the iPhone 7 (mostly because of the amazing camera/lens, let’s be real). When I upgrade at some point over the next year, I know these earphones will be perfect because the iPhone 7 does not come with a headphone jack. So for those with the iPhone 7, these earphones are a great pick if you are looking for wireless ones.
Now let’s talk about the sound, the important thing here. I really love listening to music, whether I am on camous, relaxing in my room, or on the go. For me, sound is important when it comes to earphones. During my first use of these earphones, I noticed a huge, huge difference in the quality of the sound compared to my Apple earphones. Another thing I enjoyed about these earphones is the fact that they come in different size silicon ear tips. In the past, I have always been frustrated with earbuds being too big to fit in my ears. So for these, I use the smallest size silicon ear tips, and they fit perfectly! So that is a small perk that makes a huge difference for me.
These earphones also come with a nice carrying case, which is something I really like. It’s very sturdy, so it keeps the earphones protected when you’re on the go. I also like that there’s a little key ring on the side, so you can clip them to the inside of your purse or onto your backpack for accessibility.
Because these earphones are Bluetooth, they have to be charged, which is kind of a downside for me. However, the charge does last eight hours, which is impressive, in my opinion. I also like that I can easily charge them plugged into my laptop. The charging cord is a perfect length and is easy to store in the case
Overall summary of the Optoma NuForce Bluetooth Wireless earphones:
I honestly have been really enjoying these earphones (a lot more than I expected, to be completely honest). They are very comfortable, durable, sleek and convenient. I find them to be incredibly high quality, and I also really like the sound that they produce. These earphones really fit my needs and lifestyle, so for me, they are a great thing to have for both school and travel. I know that I will definitely be getting a ton of use out of these, and I can’t wait to use them on my upcoming trip!
- Fantastic sound quality
- Very comfortable to wear/very lightweight
- Fantastic bluetooth capabilities- great range (98+ feet), easy to connect
- Battery life (8 hours)
- Nice carrying case
- Includes different sizes of silicon earphone tips
- Sleek design/I really enjoy the rose gold detailing
- Overall, very high quality
- Earphones are magnetic, so they connect to each other for easy storage
- They have to be charged
- Not the best for working out. I tried to run in these & found them slipping out of my ear a little. However, NuForce does make Bluetooth Wireless earphones that are more targeted for working out (the NuForce BE Sport3). My pair is specifically for more ‘lifestyle’ use, so these may not be the best fit if you are searching for earphones to use when working out.
- A little on the pricy side ($129). Though still more affordable than other wireless earphones on the market.
I hope you guys enjoyed this review! If you are looking for a great new pair of wireless earphones, I would highly recommend the NuForce BE6i Wireless Bluetooth earphones. I have been loving them lately!
* Thank you Optoma for sending me these amazing wireless earphones to test out! Though I was sent this product for free to test out, all opinions are 100% my own*
