Today I’ll review the Avantree Audition Pro Bluetooth headphones. Enjoy.
Starting with the package, In the box you get a nice hard shell case, 3.5 millimeter audio cable and micro USB charger. The headphones have a great old-school look with a matte black finish gold accents and black and brown leather headband.
The build quality feels pretty solid despite being made of plastic. the plastic build in the other hand contributes to them being fairly lightweight at 6.7 ounces. They are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time due to soft ear pads and adjustable headband.
I wore these while listening to three hour long podcasts and even longer while editing a wedding video and at no point did they feel uncomfortable.
They also can fold up to be about half the size which is nice for putting them in a bag for daily use or even when traveling.
On the left side of the pad is a volume control with the power button in the middle. Underneath is the 3.5 millimeter audio input, a microUSB port for charging and indicator light.
When the headphones are powered on a voice says welcome to avantree and after a few seconds it says “pairing”. Honestly I don’t mind the talking bit but when the battery is low it says “low battery” which seriously startles me every time I’ll be really focused on a podcast or a song and all of a sudden comes her voice which is so much louder than what I’m listening to and has to notify me that the battery is low. I wish they would implement another method of doing this.
Avantree says the battery life lasts up to 40 hours and I’ve had a similar experience. You can use these extensively for a few days before you need to charge them.
They also claimed low latency and I have a really difficult time noticing any at all. When I first got them and watched a video I’d notice a slight lip sync delay but I don’t notice it anymore. It could just be because I’ve used them for so long.
The Bluetooth range is up to 10 meters or 30 feet, and I found this to be pretty accurate unless there are multiple walls between you and your device.
I connect these to my desktop and do work around the apartment and at some places they do cut out. I really like how these headphones sound, they are fairly balanced and detailed, nothing sounds muffled giving it a pretty nice presence. They do favor high frequencies though and that can sometimes result in a kind of crisp or edgy sound. The bass is clean and overall they just sound really good.
If you hold the volume up and down buttons at the same time for three seconds the headphones will switch into bass on mode. This mode definitely bumps up the bass but the highs and mids sound kind of muddy, so, personally I prefer it off but if you are listening to a lot of bass heavy music then you might appreciate the option.
The headphones have a microphone too that sounds okay to be honest, not that good but for casual usage it is good.
Overall I really like the Avantree Audition Pro. They’re one of my personal headphones that I use eventually. Great mids and highs, a bass boost function and everything that a mid-priced headphone can offer, click on the button below to check the price at Amazon.
