I’m forever killing headphones. Usually by getting the cables caught in my wheelchair somehow so in December, I finally took the plunge and went wireless. And I got myself a pair of Jabra Move Wireless over-ear headphones. Having given a good test drive now, I can tell you that I wish that I had done years ago!
I'm forever killing headphones. Usually by getting the cables caught in my wheelchair somehow so in December, I finally took the plunge and went wireless.
The first thing to comment on is the price – at between £40-60, Jabra Move Wireless are very affordable. Now you would think that this would impact on things like sound quality and durability. But as many others reviews have pointed out – this far from the case. Jabra Move Wireless not only boast impressive audio quality but a stylish design that I am having real difficulty breaking. They sit really well on your head and very light. The upshot being, I think people with fragile necks and low muscle tone should have no problem wearing them. The volume controls on the left ear might pose a problem for some but you can still use the paired device’s own functions. The other plus point to mention is that if you have to have devices like iPads and smartphones mounted, this will not affect the audio quality. Again this is another reason to go wireless.
On the Jabra Move Wireless there is in-built microphone, which can be activated while paired to a device. Again the controls are on the left ear cup which might be problem for some with manual dexterity issues. The battery life is superb and the headset charges really quickly. However, the on/off switch is small and might be tricky for some to use. That being said, I think the affordability of Jabra Move Wireless is a real plus point that outweighs these minor negatives.
