What’s in the Box?
Let’s start out with a video unboxing and then continue on from there:
The box for the Comfort+ is the ‘natural’ style and I like it, it’s just a brown box with specs and features listed on the back and a picture on the front.
When you open the box you’ll find two things, a case and a user guide. The user guide is the fold out style and not an actual book though.
The case is all black with a zipper to keep it closed and the Silicon Devices logo in white on the front. The case is a semi-hard case so it should do a decent job of protecting the headphones inside while traveling with them.
When you open the case you’re greeted with the headphones themselves and a mesh pocket that holds the accessories.
Accessories include a microUSB cable for charging, a clip, and a zipper style bag of earbud attachments in assorted sizes and styles.
The headphones are connected with a rubber like cord.
Both the right and the left headphone look the same, a glossy black in color with a neon green accent. On the right earphone the green accent is actually the multifunction button and below the button is a tiny hole which is the LED indicator.
On the bottom of the right earphone is the microUSB port.
On the top is are the volume buttons which also double as forward and backwards tracks.
The rubber earbuds can be removed and replaced with a different size that fits you and the stabilizers can be replaced as well. You’ll need to remove the earbuds first to get at the stabilizers, so you’ll need to put the stabilizers on and then the earbuds.
Impressions / Review:
The first thing I did was charge the Comfort+ headphones, a small LED lights up red when charging so you know it’s working.
For testing I used the Comfort+ headphones with my PS Vita and my HTC One M7 Android Cellphone.
Using them with the PS Vita I could control the volume with no problems, that’s all I need for the Vita as I don’t have music on it.
Using them with the HTC One though you can answer and end calls and obviously talk through them just like a regular headset so you don’t have to stop what you’re doing to answer the phone, just tap the button to answer.
Volume control worked fine as well with the phone and I could use previous and next track controls too to control the music player.
When using the Comfort+ there are voice notifications such as ‘power on’, ‘power off’, ‘Bluetooth connected’, ‘previous song’, and ‘the next song’.
Once you get accustomed to where the controls exactly are they’re easy to use, the buttons are small but big enough to press easily.
The first thing I have to say about comfort is that I put them in wrong the first time, sadly they do not have Left and Right markings on them, so they weren’t very comfortable, but that’s not their fault it’s my stupid fault.
Once I figured out which was right and which was left they fit much better and were much, much more comfortable.
I had to find the correct size for me and then I picked one of the stabilizers as well that fit me.
I wore them for quite a while using the Vita and my phone and I found then to be very comfortable overall once I got accustomed to them.
They are very lightweight and after a while, if you have them in right, you really don’t even notice you’re wearing them.
The one small issue the strap, it’s rubber and it will stick to your neck at time. This isn’t specific to this pair of headphones though, all of them in this style I’ve owned do the same thing.
For the price, the sound is very good overall.
They do have decent bass, not too much though, I don’t like a lot of bass in my music, but I do like some and this are just right I think.
Treble isn’t bad either, it’s a bit much, but I can live with it.
They do a decent enough job at cancelling out external noise even at lower volumes.
The range of a Bluetooth devices depends not only on the device itself but on what you’re connected to. I tested the range with the HTC One M7 Android cellphone and I found it’s decent overall and seems to do well even if obstacles like walls are there. My computer setup is in the living room of my home and I walked through the living room, through the dining room and into the kitchen and then into the laundry room and still had a perfectly clear signal. The laundry room leads out into the backyard and it was only when I went outside that the signal started to degrade and start skipping. For me the distance is more than good enough, I don’t see myself really having to go that far away from my phone for any reason really while I’m using it.
One little note about these and the case is that if you have stuff in the mesh pocket section it can possibly turn the Comfort+ headphones on. One day I opened the case and found the light blinking on the headphones, I know I turned them off and it usually only blinks when you turn them on. You can avoid this by making sure you put the button side down or away from the pocket section. Not that big of an issue, but you could easily run the battery down if this happens and you’ll go to use them to find that the battery is dead.
Overall I’d have to say these are a decent set of stereo Bluetooth headphones, they are great sounding and have excellent range.
Using them with my Android phone I had no issues, they worked just as they should, all of the controls worked perfectly fine.
They are comfortable to wear for long periods of time which is something you really want in a exercise oriented set of headphones of course.
I’d have to say they’re not bad at all, just some very small issues that can easily be overlooked really.
