Disclaimer: This review made is of my honestly held opinion and am not a statement of fact.
You don’t need to splurge big on a wireless headphone. This bluetooth powered headphone is affordable, sturdy and sounds decent.
- Fits nicely on my big shaped head. Comfortable to wear.
- Very robust. I’ve used it many times on my outdoor activities from HIIT sprints, slope runs to staircase workout.
- Works without flaw on my Windows 7 platform.
- Not suitable wearing it lying down due to how the headphone is designed.
- If it’s to be used on multiple devices, there’s a chance you might need to pair it again.
- Might be too ‘heavy’ and ‘big’ in design for smaller petite ladies.
- I’m no audiophile but I can tell you that the overall sound quality of this headphone is decent.
- The bass is somewhat deep but it won’t overpower the background. There was a slight hiss but it’s not that noticeable.
- A good thing about this headphone is the price itself. Pretty much affordable.
- One thing is for sure, this is not a noise canceling headphones. But it does quite a good job of isolating background noises.
- Odd looking design to me, but surprisingly very comfortable. No discomfort feeling as with other previous headphones that rest on my ears that I’ve used.

Bluetooth headsets are not the most celebrated little gadgets, more so those models that hang out of one ear. However the forward-thinking approach of Enzatec has made them cool again.
The BT501 combines a stereo headset with a microphone in a device that is easy on the eyes. Featuring a rear-facing head strap that goes to the back of your neck, the device sits comfortably, though it does take some getting used to. At 99g, it is not very heavy, but you will notice it at first.
With its A2DP support, the device showcases its versatility by connecting with any device that is compliant. This means that you can use the device with everything from your iPhone 3G or later, to your mp3 player or android device.
The 25mm speaker is made of a premium Mylar material which results in a rich sound that is clear and without distortions. The audio performance is beyond reproach, as the BT501 is acoustically designed.
The call and music keys are easily accessible, so using the device is convenient. While its range of 10m might not be the largest distance seen on a device in this class, it does allow you to use the BT501 around the house or office without any trouble. Thanks to its splash and sweat resistance, you can go jogging with it too.
A rechargeable Lithium battery sustains the Bluetooth stereo headphones. On standby, the device will last about 150 hours or so, while modest to regular use will reduce that to between 4-8 hours.
The Enzatec BT501 will not put a dent in your pocket. It costs less than $50 in most retail outlets.
In a world that celebrates little conveniences, this little accessory will bring a much desired one. If you like listening to music as you workout, you will grow to love it.
