Up for review today I’ve got a set of Bluetooth headphones called the Talk n’ Walk which have a control pad built right into them. So yes they are Bluetooth but they also have a 3.5mm audio jack so you can use them with any audio device as well. They’re inexpensive and they even have a built-in microphone so you can take calls with them on. Read on to learn more…

What’s in the Box?
Let’s start off with a video unboxing and then move on from there:
The package for the Talk n’ Walk headphones is nice looking actually and it has a window on it to see them. On the back you’ll find plenty of information listed as well.
Once unpack everything you’ll find the user guide, headphones and a microUSB cable.
The Bluetooth Talk n’ Walk headphones I got are a neon green and black in color but you can get other colors. They’re very lightweight and they seem to be made well, honestly they do seem a bit on the ‘cheap’ side.
On the side of the right earpiece is the on/off switch, it just slides.
On the bottom of the right earphone you’ll find the 3.5mm audio jack and the microphone.
On the outside of the right earpiece is the control panel which has button for play/pause, volume up and down and skip tracks forward and back. The play/pause button is also used for answering and ending calls.
Tucked up behind the hinge of the right earpiece is the microUSB port for charging the Talk n’ Walk headphones.
Both of the earpieces are padded well, it’s soft and a faux leather.
The top headband is just solid plastic, there’s no padding at all but they are adjustable.
Impressions / Review:
On the right earpiece is also an LED below the controls, it turns red when charging and green for Bluetooth pairing.
To test the Bluetooth function I used the headphones with my PS Vita and HTC One M7 cellphone.
I also dug up a 3.5mm audio cable for further testing.
When I plugged the cable in there was no sound, it turns out you actually have to power them on to use them with an audio cable which just doesn’t make sense to me at all. I don’t understand why you have to power them on to use the audio cable. I could see if there was active noise cancellation or something like that but there isn’t.
The controls worked fine with the HTC One, all of the functions worked as they should.
One thing to note, the volume control is for the volume of the headphones and not your device.
Overall the sound quality is just fair, it’s not bad but it’s not great either. There is a decent amount of bass and some treble in them, but the sound is just plain or bland and kind of hollow.
They have virtually no noise cancellation so unless you turn them up very loud you can easily hear outside noises.
The headband has no padding on it at all so it’s not quite what I would call comfortable on the head.
The padding on the earpieces is nice and soft and comfortable once you get them on.
When I first put them on they just didn’t feel right, I had to twist and move them around until they fit better.
Ok, for the price these aren’t bad, but you get what you pay for as it were. In other words, these aren’t that good but they’re not that bad either.
The Bluetooth Talk n’ Walk headphones are not a bad choice if you don’t have a lot of money to spend, they offer decent sound quality for the price.
Honestly these aren’t the greatest headphones, the headband is hard and not quite comfortable but the earpads are anyway.
The Bluetooth function works fine as do the controls with those devices I tried them with.
You can use them with any audio thanks to the audio jack but sadly they don’t include an audio cable so you’ll have to buy one.
Overall I’m not sure about these. For kids they would be fine, in fact I’m giving them to my kids to mess with, for me I’ll stick with something that costs quite a bit more…
