Opera S5+

Opera’s S5+ headphones use the Kleer wireless technology rather than Bluetooth. They also include a dongle that plugs into the dock connector on an iPhone, iPad or iPod. The results are impressive – if only for the sheer volume, which far outguns any of the Bluetooth headphones in this group. The audio quality is good too – it’s a more solid and robust sound than I’ve heard from most Bluetooth headphones. The only minor problem was that I found it necessary to jam the fiddly little earbuds quite tightly into my ears, or else the lower frequencies would lose strength.

Plantronics Backbeat 903

RH Recommended Medal

Getting the Backbeat’s rubbery earpieces successfully hooked over your ears and plugged in is a bit of a struggle, but they do work well and their light, portable design is suitable both for sporting activities and for simply jamming into your pocket when you’re travelling. The audio quality is very good, with a rich full sound and plenty of detail, and there’s a bass boost option to give things an extra kick as well. There’s a decent size microphone for phone calls, and you can also fork out another £20 for the Backbeat 906 model, which includes a Bluetooth dongle that will work with any device that has a standard audio jack.
