SENSO ActivBuds Bluetooth Headphones Review

Today let’s bring a review about the SENSO ActivBuds. It is receiving very good reviews on Amazon lately and we have the responsibility to bring an honest review for you guys, let’s take a look and see if it is worth the investment.

Sound

If you have a stock earphone from Apple or Samsung this is going to surprise you. The bass quality and voice quality is better than anything you have heard so far, the thing is, at this price range the quality is standard, but don’t get me wrong here, it is standard to the price range and to “veteran” ears  but if you are coming from stock earbuds, this will really surprise you.

Another high point is the bass very well reproduced and deep, and the wide soundstage, improving significantly the immersion experience.

 

Design and Durability

Giving it a closer look, you will see that the driver housing is made entirely of plastic but that doesn’t mean that it will not be durable. If we have a good quality plastic, it will be as durable as the metal ones. This design clearly favors the “over the ear” style, which I personally like the most. If I have to guess an expiration date, I would say, It would easily last for a year or 2 if it is well cared.

As you can see from the pictures, the cables are flat, and this is a nice feature for me because I really prefer flat cables over normal ones, because the chances of you having a headache later because of connections are significantly lower.

 

Comfort and Fit

When we are talking about headphones, the comfort and fit will depend entirely on the ear pads and the material used on them, but when it comes to earbuds, it will depend mostly on the number of ear tips offered, because every ear is different.

Fortunately for us, the SENSO ActivBuds offers 3 pairs of ear tips (small, medium and large).

Accessories and Extras

The SENSO ActivBuds comes in two main colors, Black/Red or Black/Grey. You will also receive in the package: A good looking branded carrying case, a short charging cable, the 3 pairs of ear tips, the cable clip and user manuals. And it is also equipped with a microphone for calls. Again, nothing out of the ordinary here, most of the products at this price offers the same amount of extras.

The battery time is 8h of music playback which is only slightly above average at this price range.
