Kygo A3/600 On Ear Headphones

When out and about and wanting to listen to music then headphones are often the way to remove external noise. This could also be true in a household where there are several occupants. Here a set of small on ear headphones that could suit.

Weight is not normally the first item I mention but at only 180 grams they are light for a set of headphones. Next is the size as the arms fold in on themselves a size of 16x14x7cm makes them easy to slip into a bag or pocket.

They can be as little as 15cm from the base of the earpiece to the top head band but there is up to three centimetres of expansion in each arm so they should fit most heads.

There is a rubberised padding on the inside of the headband but this did not irritate my head even though I have a distinct lack of hair. I think the soft padded earpieces are leather – if not it’s a very leather like material. Each inside is clearly marked ‘L’ or ‘R’ so you get the correct stereo effect.

All the controls are on the right earpiece, micro USB for charging, 3.5mm socket for Auxiliary connection and three push buttons to control the output.

While these are described as ‘on ear’ for a younger person or someone with small ears I think they would qualify as ‘over ear’.

Most would use these as Bluetooth mainly because few recent SmartPhones comes with a 3.5mm socket and for that reason I gave the weight without the Aux lead attached.

Bluetooth Pairing is straightforward and the instructions are on the inside of the box lid.

Other usage instructions are on the back of the box. There are two small leaflets in the box but they are warranty and warning instructions.

Also in the box is a drawstring bag a 20cm flat micro USB to USB lead as well as a 1.2metre 3.5mm to 3.5mm lead for Aux use.

I keep an MP3 player with samples of all Genres of music and voices for testing and so I did use the Aux lead during part of my testing time. All my tests passed with good clarity plenty of volume and a reasonable amount of base.

A full charge is stated to give twenty three hours of playing time and I certainly got close to this figure over a three day period.

There is a pin hole microphone so you can make and receive phone calls. The normal Bluetooth range of ten metres is mentioned on the very small print on the box but who lets their SmartPhone out of their sight let alone as far as ten metres away, my home has solid concrete walls and it worked for one room distance about the normal that I get.

My ears tend to sweat with over ear offerings but not so with these on ear ones.

I liked these on ear headphones. There is no fancy packaging so the price is just good value.

At the time of publication the Kygo A3/600 On Ear Headphones are available from Amazon for £79.99.
