When considering the purchase of a set of ear buds, Currys/PC World can offer a product with its own neck band.

Headphones come in a variety of styles. shapes and sizes.  In the case of the Goji PRO Wireless Headphones, this personal listening audio piece of equipment is of the in-ear variety. These headphones combine a necklace support facility with wireless Bluetooth connectivity with fast battery charging facility giving up to 12 hours of power to produce its personal audio functionality.

These headphones are supported on the wearer by a necklace type element which is formed of a piece of a solid rubber tube measuring 34 cm.  I found this tube felt comfortable when resting on the neck even when lengthy listening sessions were involved.  Situated at each end of this tube are two metallic  cylinder sheath.  Extending, by 55 mm, from these individual sheaths are a pair of string-like threads leading to the actual ear buds that insert into the left and right ears.  The ear buds are marked to indicate into which ear the bud is inserted.  The buds are slightly magnetic so that they cling to each other when not being used to provide their primary purpose of delivering the audio content to each ear.  This magnetic feature should ensure that the ear buds do not swing about, causing a distraction, when the wearer is moving around while not listening to music.

As mentioned earlier, each end of the necklace element features a metallic, cylindrical sheath.  The cylinder on the right side contains a Type C USB port.  This port is used to recharge the headphones' internal battery.  A pin-prick indicator light that glows in a different colour depending on the current status of the headphones.

A second, smaller sheath, containing various control options. is positioned between the right ear bud and the main sheath.  These control items, such as volume adjustment, next and previous track selection, call function, Bluetooth and audio playback plus the built-in microphone function.  While most of this smaller sheath is  coloured silver, there is a black strip and this is where the actual controls, also coloured black, are placed..  This means that the selection needs to be carried out by touch rather than visually identifying the appropriate control. 

This partially explains why I struggled to establish a Bluetooth connection especially when you realise that the Bluetooth connection will only be instigated when the headphones start in a power-off state.  It took several attempts before I was able to achieve the required Bluetooth connection and be able to take advantage of the product's various features.  At times this feature checking was not the easiest of tasks especially when the ear buds were being worn.  The control module was positioned too near my face to suit my needs.  Attempting to access the control unit. when the headphones were being used. would sometimes result in the ear buds being dislodged from the security of my ears.  While I could lay some of the blame on my clumsiness, design features also need to accept some responsibility.

Making up this product, priced at £39.99 by Currys, Dixons, and PC World, are the main headphones unit. USB charging cable, 3 sets of Silicone buds, carry pouch and Instruction Manual booklet that would have benefitted from the use of a larger font size.
