Bluetooth headphones have long been a compromise, delivering a lot of convenience at the cost of a noticeable loss in sound quality. It's a bandwidth issue that's tough to hack, even with the relatively recent rise of 5.0 Bluetooth tech.
The Oomo 3D 5.1 Virtual Surround Sound Earphones may have just broken that low-quality sound barrier, becoming the world's first wireless earpieces to offer 3D 5.1 Surround Sound.
That's thanks to a structure that effectively routes different frequencies into separate channels. When they come together, the result is crystal-clear sounds, augmented by aptX noise reduction and an internal cavity that absorbs feedback and allows for theater-caliber, infrasonic bass. The viscoelastic material is surprisingly durable too, as well as being sweat-resistant. You'll get approximately 8 hours of talk time out of them on a charge – enough for a couple of marathon jogs.
Originally priced at $129.95, the Oomo 3D 5.1 Virtual Surround Sound Bluetooth Earphones are now on sale for $102.95.
