Electronic Frontier's BES102 Bluetooth stereo/Hi-Fi headphones reviewed

Electronic Frontier BES102 bluetooth headphones

Geekzone had some intimate one-on-one time with the BES102 Bluetooth stereo/Hi-Fi headphones with the BES103 Bluetooth Audio Adapter and found them pricey (about $180USD), but quite good. If you have a device that supports the A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), part of the new Bluetooth Specification V1.2, it will talk to the BES102 headphones natively — otherwise, you can use the BES103 3.5mm jack Bluetooth Audio Adapter to essentially serve as your A2DP intermediary, and beam audio from any old device with a minijack out. It also works with your Bluetooth cellphone, and will mute audio when you receive calls. Audio quality from the headphones is reportedly great, and the ability to pair with a wide range of devices via the adapter also got the BES102's some high marks. There's only one charger, though, so once your 5-6 hours of battery life is up you'll be SOL until it's done charging again (you'll have to remember to keep both the phones and the adapter charged up).
