We have already tested quite a lot of wireless headphones, but today we will talk about an interesting model called PowerHBQ Pro.
As you can see from the picture, these are sports headphones and the design reminds me very much of the wired headphones that we already tested AWEI WT50.
The prices for PowerHBQ Pro sports headphones start at $25 with a small discount.
The first thing that catches your eye is the large size of the case and silicone ear hooks that will hold during fast running or other sports exercises. PowerHBQ Pro also received Bluetooth 5.0, a standby time of about 120 hours, a resistance of 32 Ohms and much more.
If you are interested, then I suggest starting our full testing of wireless sports headphones.
PowerHBQ Pro: Specifications
PowerHBQ Pro: Unboxing
A small black box meets me, where on the front part you can see the headphone pattern and model name. On the side of the box shows the technical specifications.
Inside the box is a case in protective foam, under it, there are two sets of silicone ear pads, where some are already installed on the headphones. There is also an instruction manual and a micro USB charging cable.
As for its price, you should not expect high-quality elements, even if you look at the silicone ear pads, they are not made of the best material. Again, considering its price – the kit is good.
PowerHBQ Pro: Design
The appearance of the PowerHBQ Pro sports headphones is surprising in size, but I want to note the weight of each earphone is not large – about 4 grams. In my ears, wireless headphones sit perfectly and I did not feel any discomfort.
For everyday use, this model will look very bulky, but for classes in the stadium or the gym, it will be just the perfect solution.
Thanks to the soft silicone ear hooks, the PowerHBQ Pro has good support and when running fast, the headphones sit in the ear canal very reliably.
On the front of the device, I see a mechanical power button and a notification indicator.
On top of the case, there is a volume rocker on each channel from the headphones. A fairly convenient solution and has a large number of functionality, but more about them later.
The bottom has only contacts for charging.
The appearance of the PowerHBQ Pro is very similar to the Beats Power BBQ Pro, even the name is almost the same. Well, Chinese companies like to copy top manufacturers.
As the manufacturer indicates, sports wireless headphones received protection against water standard IPX4. This means that they are not afraid of sweat and light rain, but I would not recommend even playing sports in light rain.
The charging case is made of the same matte plastic as the headphones themselves. It is quite massive in size and of course, it cannot fit in a jeans pocket, only in a backpack.
I did not find any signs on the case, on the back, there is a micro USB port for charging.
The lid has a magnetic connection and opens well. Inside the case, the headphones sit firmly thanks to the magnets. Also inside the case between the headphones is a small screen that shows the battery level.
The quality of the materials, both the case and the headphones is average, but for their price, these are good sports headphones that are comfortable to wear and fit tightly in your ears.
PowerHBQ Pro: Connection and Control
The wireless headphones received a Bluetooth connection version 5.0. I already stop wondering that on budget headphones you can find the latest generation of wireless connection.
The connection itself is simple, if you previously connected wireless headphones, then you will not have problems. First, you need to turn on the headphones, you will see a white and red indicator light up, and then go to the Bluetooth menu on your mobile device and select this model from the list.
The switching functionality is rich, if you want to increase or decrease the volume, you need to press the volume rocker once.
If you switch the track forward, you need to hold the minus, and if you go back – plus. A strange decision to switch tracks, but you can get used to it.
PowerHBQ Pro: Sound
An 8 mm dynamic driver is installed inside the case and it automatically connects the AAC codec.
As for the sound? I liked the sound of PowerHBQ Pro, the sound is quite voluminous and rich.
The low frequencies are very dense and bass is enough with the head. Given that these are sports headphones, I could not even expect that the stock of sound would be enough for everyday use.
Although not everything is so good at medium frequencies, the sound detail is not the best.
And high frequencies are sometimes dull and it will be difficult to expect miracles in high-quality sound.
The microphone quality is average, but I heard the interlocutor well during a conversation, but he heard me a little muffled.
PowerHBQ Pro: Battery
A 100 mAh battery was installed inside each headphone, and the charging box still has an additional 950 mAh battery.
As the manufacturer indicates. The battery life of the headphones will last for 8-10 hours at a volume level of about 80%. During my testing, the headphones worked at maximum volume for almost 6.5 hours. Of course, this is not the best result, even considering the large battery capacity.
The charging time of headphones will be about 2 hours via micro USB port.
PowerHBQ Pro: Conclusions and Reviews
PowerHBQ Pro Sport wireless headphones are not traditional headphones for everyday use. But I think that there will be a category of people who they will suit.
This model is designed for sports and at the same time, the sound quality will preferably be more youthful. For example, the hip hop genre where bass will be plentiful.
Although the important point is the wearing comfort. I want to say that for me the PowerHBQ Pro was very comfortable, the headphones did not fall out and the landing was good, despite its large size.
PowerHBQ Pro: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
At the time of writing, you can buy PowerHBQ Pro sports headphones at an interesting and low price for just $25.83 with a 49% discount.
The overall impression of the wireless headphones has remained positive and I believe that these are some of the most comfortable headphones I have tested to date.
