Bluetooth headphones were suppose to give us the benefits of their physically connected counterparts but without the entanglement and limitations of wires. Outside of a select few brands Bluetooth headphones have mostly been a non-starters among audiophiles of many levels due to uncomfortable designs, poor sound quality, and flaky bluetooth connections. Designs can be improved and changed but for most there is no one size fits all solution.

I’m usually stuck on the sidelines when it comes to product unveiling events. Having to watch them via the internet either live streamed or live blogged through someone else can really be the pits if it’s something your truly interested in.

I took a deep breath and decided to jump right in. What could I lose except a few bucks and the time and effort spent installing it. If successful it would go on a new computer build I’m planning in the near future. There’s no need for me to mess around with my current Windows 7 setup when it’s perfectly fine the way it is. So for now I will only experience the install and setup process.
