Over a year ago I gave you the Syllable D900 MINI Bluetooth headphones without cables, but shown with in-ear construction. The cordless headset solution can to a certain extent be seen as an alternative to the Apple AirPods - just like the new model Syllable D9X. This is not yet available in Germany, but the manufacturer has already told me that it will be on the market - there will be a test here soon. Before that, I'd like to introduce you to a few other Syllable Bluetooth headphones.
Update 6. December 2017: I had the Syllable D9X headphones in the test and show you in this review the advantages and disadvantages of in-ear headphones. Update end
Chapter in this post:
Syllable D9X with batteries and charger
Wireless Bluetooth headphones with charging cradles are nothing new and have been a trend of their own since the Apple AirPods. With the Syllable D9X headphones (available from Amazon for $ 79,99), the manufacturer goes one better: not only includes the headphones and charging cradle, but also replacement batteries. There are a total of four batteries for the in-ear headphones, and 8 hours of music runtime are promised. If you only use one as a headset, you can use up four batteries with it - it will take you a long time! As soon as I have my copy and can test it, I will let you know whether it is worth buying;)
Models available in Germany
As mentioned above, it is not yet possible to buy the Syllable D9X in-ear Bluetooth headphones on the German Amazon site. You can find information on the model from last year with a charging cradle but without replaceable batteries under the link given at the beginning. Here are a few more Syllable headphones with good and very good ratings on Amazon:
- Bluetooth headset Syllable D9: predecessor of the Syllable D9X with charging cradle, but without replaceable batteries - currently € 39,99 at Amazon
- Syllable S1 in-ear headphones: Wired in-ears with 3,5mm jack and microphone for voice control under iOS and Android - currently € 19,99 on Amazon
- Syllable G02S in-ear headphones: Wired in-ears with 3,5mm jack connection and flat cable for more organization - currently € 7,99 at Amazon
Wireless headphones with replaceable battery
What do you think of the new approach to offer wireless headphones with replaceable batteries? The best solution for on the go or just more parts that can get lost? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic as well as your experiences with Syllable or similar headphones;) A test on wired Bluetooth headphones from dodocool (model DA109) you can find here.
