Nokia BH-604

Nokia BH-604 Bluetooth headphones

The traditional closed-can design of Nokia’s BH-604 – not to mention the packaging picture of the DJ in a smoke-filled nightclub – makes it clear that the emphasis with these headphones is very much on the music side of things. The closed-can design works well in that context, as the headphones pump out plenty of volume while the padded earpieces help to block out background noise in noisy clubs or bars. The sound quality is good – though not exceptional – and the headphones do include a built-in microphone just in case you need to take a call on your mobile in the middle of a gig.

Plantronics Audio 990

Our enjoyment of the Audio 990 was marred only by the woefully inadequate Quick Start guide, which left us scratching our head even when performing simple tasks such as plugging the unit into the mains to charge the battery. The headphones work on their own with any Bluetooth phone or MP3 player, but also include a separate Bluetooth adaptor that can be plugged into any non-Bluetooth audio device, such as an iPod or CD player. The audio quality is good – though it does suffer from a slightly muffled sound, and isn’t quite as clear as the best headphones in this group.
