Kinivo Bluetooth Headphones: A Steal at $25

Kinivo-BTH240-1

No matter how much I may enjoy reviewing the really good ones, not many people want to spend $3oo on a pair of headphones. Truthfully, there are a lot of people who are never going to spend $100 on a pair. If you want a solid pair of headphones that have wireless Bluetooth capabilities, the Kinivo BTH240 Stereo Headphones are a great choice and you can get a pair for around $25 online.

Yep, $25. I'm not going to try to convince anyone that these can compete with my favorite audiophile headphones, but they cost $25.  Bluetooth pairing is easy, although you can only pair with one device at a time. You can pause, play, control the volume and skip tracks from the controls on the right earpiece. There's a microphone, so you can take calls with your phone in your pocket.

These hook over your ears and the connecting piece goes behind your head. They're a lot more comfortable for long periods than I would've imagined. Kinivo promises 10 hours of use on a single charge. I've probably used them longer than that on a single charge with listening sessions spread out over a week or so. They fold up nicely, come with a travel bag and the standard micro USB charging cable.

Part of what makes them comfortable is how lightly they sit on your ears, but that also leads to one small caution. While the Kinivo can would be a great choice for lifting at the gym or for walking, runners might have an issue. If you're pounding the pavement, they're going to move around a bit and that's gong to create a slight rustling noise as the pads rub against your ears.

These Bluetooth headphones compare favorably to sets that retail over a hundred bucks. At $25, they're a steal.
