Our overview

What we liked:

POOME Wireless Bluetooth Headphones have a Secure-Fit design to stay fixed to your ears while jogging, cycling or doing exercises. We would call it having the classical look of over ear hooks that is basically what you need for a good workout earbuds. What do go into your ears are nice transparent silicone and foam ear tips.

Battery. One of standing out features is 80 mAH polymer battery providing play time up to 9 hours and stand-by time up to 220 hours. A nice day-long playtime for multiple workouts or a 8 hours work time at office. To charge POOME you need about two hours.

Style and feel. Wireless headphones have modern and sporty design. Over ear hooks are very soft. If in rain, they can became loose if you are wearing a bigger ear tips together. With a normal sized ear tip for your ears and in rain headphones are holding without many problems.

Sound quality. APT-X compression allows to transfer better quality sound via bluetooth. This codec is used if both sides of devices support it. As for sport earbuds, sound quality is good. Bases are heard quite well (not weak and not excessive also). If using bigger ear tips, you will get a deeper bass effect. But primary, ear tips should help to hold earphones in place, so comfort and hold should go before extra bass. Concerning treble, it is clear and crisp.

Bluetooth. Wireless headphones use bluetooth 4.1 CSR technology. You can expect a distance up to 33 feet ( about 10 meters) with the current version of bluetooth with one simple condition – clear path between earphones and bluetooth device.
Seller also mentions bluetooth profiles: HFP, HSP, A2DP, AVRCP. That it was not a marketing trick, we will explain shortly these abbreviations to find out, that mostly all bluetooth headsets have these same profiles.

Headset Profile (HSP) – most commonly used profile to maintain communication between bluetooth headsets and mobile phones.

Hands Free Profile (HFP) – primary built for cars to allow bluetooth connection to a mobile phone. HFP has more features than HSP, including using some of phone features, while phone is in the pocket or bag (e.g. making calls, last number redial, call waiting and voice dialing, display battery level of headset).

Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) – profile deals and determines how multimedia can be streamed (phone to wireless headphones, car audio or from laptop to headset).

Audio / Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) is used for remote controlling devices from headset or from transmitting device. E.g. adjusting volume, skipping tracks or pausing and playing.

How good are POOME wireless headphones on water resistance? As sport earbuds, they have more than a full sweatproof rating of IPX7. You should not worry at all about sweat or rain catching you while jogging.

What’s in the box? In the package you would find:
– Bluetooth earphones
– round and firm waterproof carrying case with zipper
– standard short USB to micro USB charging cable
– 3 pairs of silicone ear tips (Small, Medium, Large)
– 1 pair of foam ear tips
– cord shortening clip
– user manual with warranty.

Noise cancellation is passive. When using ear tips that cover all entering of your ear without leaving gaps, noise isolation effect is strong. Same as many other similar type headphones. POOME also suggests a pair of foam ear tips to get full of possible noise isolation.

Worth considering:
– Over ear hooks are very soft. When they get wet in the rain they can become loose.
– The cord of the earphones is quite stiff and less flexible. While in active sport you are turning your neck, earphones can become little loose in your ears.
– while indoors and paying more attention to the quality of sound, you would not get a full spectrum of rich sound. If using these headphones outside or for active sport, they are very good.

Review: SoundWhiz Turbo Bluetooth Waterproof Earbuds

Why should you by? Design and comfort. The headphones have a decent and comfortable design. Well, design is not outstanding but the seller has done homework on more comfort. Ear hooks are soft, pliable, but not flimsy. They are made of a soft silicon material that's pretty bendable. A nice thing is the Turbo have two positions of wearing - casual fit and locked-id. Casual or easy fit is a position for daily simple/long wear. Over ear hooks are not tightly wrapping your ears. For an active sport or activity manufacturer suggests to 'lock-in' earbuds by rotating them slightly (hooks to your back direction. See image bellow).
