Review: AXGIO Dash Bluetooth Headphones

I have been using the AXGIO Dash Bluetooth Headphones since Jan. 23. These are the first wireless headphones I have ever owned. I went with this pair because they were less than $40 at the time I bought them through Amazon.

The headphones come with three earbud tips (S/M/L). The ones that came on the earbuds were uncomfortable so I switched them. I tried both sets, but it turns out the small tips worked best with my ears. The headphones also come with a nice case to keep them in.

The headphones synced with the phone in less than a minute. It was very easy. A few times after turning on the earbuds, they say “connected” after connecting. This happens more when using both together.

The product description states the headphones get “8 hours of talk or music playing time (at 50% volume).” Using them together to play podcasts and music, I seem to get 5 hours, which is how I use them at the gym or while shoveling snow. Using them one at a time, I seemed to get 6 to 7 hours, which is how I mainly use them while working as a merchandiser.

You will have to charge them every day, especially if you are using both at the same time. This could be a negative, but not unusual—there are other things people charge every day, from phones to watches. What is one more device to add to the list? Charging these headphones took around 75 minutes.

It seems music quality is of a lesser quality than what comes through Apple’s earbuds. This doesn’t bother me.

Some negatives I have noticed with the AXGIO headphones is it seems while playing music the units have a hard time keeping both buds synced together at times. The music will go to each individual unit instead of staying synced. This will happen a few times before becoming synced again. This happens occasionally while listening to podcasts. The voice prompts for Apple Maps and Google Maps don’t work with them while listening to podcasts. Facebook video audio doesn’t come through the headphones.

Overall, I am happy with the AXGIO Dash Bluetooth Headphones, but when I need to upgrade I will go with something different.
