The Photive PH-BTE70 produce excellent audio quality, quick Bluetooth pairing and a secure comfortable fit. With the advanced sound production and moisture resistant technology used in these top wireless headphones, runners can enjoy inspiring music for several hours even when running in the rain.
The PH-BTE70 has been completely re-designed and it offers significant improvement over its predecessor – Photive PH-BTE50. It has a lightweight, comfortable and minimalistic design. For the housing, Photive uses a universal black color that will fit both men and women. On the external surface, there is a thin layer of Liquipel that provides protection from sweat and moisture. Liquipel repels liquids from the surface so you can run in the sweaty hot weather or under the rain without damaging these earphones. To keep the earbuds stable and firm in your ears while running, Photive added flexible ear hooks. These hooks fit into different ear sizes and they are quite comfortable. So you can put them on and literately forget them in your ears.
Since these earbuds are made with soft material and they are quite small in size, they don’t irritate your ears or cause any discomfort. After many hours of running, you can still keep them on. The bendable ear hooks also cling to your ears without causing any pain. So while you are involved in a rigorous workout, you won’t be distracted by irritating ear tips or be bothered about re-fixing your earbuds in your ears.
PH-BTE70 uses the APTX sound system to deliver excellent audio quality. This advanced sound balancing system delivers high, mid and low frequencies with amazing clarity. So you can hear the distinct sounds of each instrument used in the sound track. Bass production on these earbuds is significantly high when compared with their small size. So within a wide volume range, you can enjoy very loud output. Whether you want to listen to rock, hip hop, heavy metal music or cool R & B tunes, you should expect superior sound production from these headphones.
You can get at least 6 hours of battery usage on a single charge. This is sufficient for a few days of running if you workout for about 1 to 2 hours daily. To charge the earbuds, you can use the micro USB cable that came in the box. Charging time is about 20 minutes per hour of use. So you can recharge a flat battery to full strength within 2 hours. Bear in mind that the volume level you use to listen to music will affect the rate at which the battery gets drained.
PH-BTE70 has a unique set of controls. Instead of the universal inline controls, Photive has provided a few multi-function buttons for you to play and pause tracks, increase or decrease the volume and to switch the device on or off. This may require a little practice to master but the buttons serve as a nice compliment to the minimalistic design of the lightweight earphones. Connecting the headphones to your smartphone or tablet is a straight forward process. You only need to hold down a button for a few seconds as long as Bluetooth has been activated on your mobile device. PH-BTE70 comes with Bluetooth 4.1, which gives faster connectivity and lower power consumption.
