Excerpt: BlueAnt’s recently introduced the Embrace headphones, and they’ve graciously sent a pair for the Gadgeteer to review this week. These are BlueAnt’s first non-Bluetooth headphones, using a standard 1/8″ connector, and designed with a focus on sound quality and comfort. They also come with two cables, one regular cable and another with an iPod/iPhone/iPad controller & microphone. Read on to find out how BlueAnt’s newest headphones stack up.
Excerpt: Choosing a set of headphones, especially expensive ones, is pretty hard. There are so many different pairs, styles and performance levels that we could, in theory, run a site just reviewing headphones and never run out.
Pros: Great sound quality, comfortable, well-built, replaceable components
Cons: Expensive, not as portable as in-ear 'phones
Excerpt: If we gave star ratings for design and build alone, the BlueAnt Embrace headphones would be a shoo-in for the full five. Their soft, on-ear cushions and headband feel solid and comfy in situ, and don’t feel like they’ll fly off if you move your head.
