Audio-Technica ATH-AR3BTBK On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones – : Comfortable and easy operation

Excellent headphones, exactly what i wanted. I’d previously tried some cheaper similar products but despite some of the rave reviews here they sounded awful to my ears. This time i did my research and found some proper reviews of this type of headphone and this was the only sub-£100 example that seemed to meet my requirements – comfortable, smooth, detailed sound without the artificial bass boost that plague many modern headphones at all price levels but especially the cheaper ones. The audio-technica ath-ar3btbk sound pretty good on bluetooth, but wired they’re even better – in fact better than my more expensive akg “studio monitor” class phones. They’re also much easier to drive than the akgs too, being designed to be driven by any old portable device rather than needing a dedicated headphone amplifier like the akgs do. I bought “used” from amazon warehouse deals at a useful saving on the new price, i suspect the original purchaser returned it for exactly the same reason i bought it – the bass is deep and smooth rather than “boom box” like; if you really want that effect you can turn it on in the equaliser on your phone (whatever) but you can’t do anything to turn “boom box” headphones into anything else. The only down side of the deal was the carry pouch was missing and not mentioned in the description of condition, but it’s not a big deal and not the fault of the headphones so i haven’t deducted a star. Bottom line is i doubt you’ll find better sounding headphones of any type at this price – the well-implemented bluetooth is just a bonus :-).

This is the best headphones i’ve bought. I was in the market looking for a wireless headphones with best sound quality. Got to say this is worth the money. The sound quality is the best.

The headphones sound quality is great and the bluetooth functionality is also very good once you master it. The fold up quite neatly too which i did not expect. All in all i am very pleased with the headphones and would recommend them.

Great sound and easy to use for skipping songs and playing.

The is a high quality product, i would 10/10 recommend.

A little tight when off the ears and placed around the neck but no chance of them falling off if running for a bus.

Would have given it 5 stars but eh earphones sit uncomfortable on the ears even for short periods.

I spent ages looking for a decent pair of headphones under £100 and these are pretty much the best. My ears do get a little hot and sweaty when at the gym, but they’re great apart from that.

  • Comfortable and easy operation
  • Sound quality is great and bluetooth pickup is very good too

Best headphones i’ve got within this budget. They are on ear which i first felt doubtful. I also have a bose quietcomfort headphone, which i did not want to take out for commute and gym. What you need to watch out is the sharp edges that are on the ends of the band, fit’s in any coat pocket. Playback is pretty awesome only needed to really charge after 3rd or 4th week of continuous use, can still use it while charging as well. Covers 50 – 70% of sound with classical or acoustic. Rock, metal, shredders, hip hop, roughly 75 – 90%. Sound quality amaze balls when linked to onkyo player (they’ve updated the ui, so it’s a lot nicer to navigate, if you’re into flac all). They do get a bit hot after 2hrs+ of use, but cool down and loosening the band slightly not much of a hindrance. Headphones will stay on if you’re using it for exercise i.

Great overall, especially for the price. Little bit flimsy but if you’re careful all’s good :).

If you aren’t looking to spend a couple of hundred on a pair of bose or equivalent headphones these are the ones for you. Whilst not a full over ear headphone they provide reasonable noise cancellation without sound playing and with sound you will be unable to hear if at a reasonable level. Sound quality is good, bluetooth is good and doesn’t appear to drop out whilst i’m moving around. Can be used as wired headphones (there is a mic built into the cable as well so can be used for handsfree. Charge on bluetooth element is great and lasts a long period of time meaning you wont need to charge them all the time. Fold up quite small so easy to store.

Great but get uncomfortable after a while.

Well built with great sound.
