As I said in the introduction of this review I am a huge fan of wireless headphones. They allow you to listen to music and other media without actually being connected to the device that is playing the music. This makes it possible for you to walk away from it to do something else and still have your music with you and of course no wires just makes things more comfortable.
The Adesso Xtreme H3 is a great wireless headset and we all know how easy Bluetooth headsets are to setup. Setup of the Xtreme H3 took less than a minute. Adesso’s paring and setup system is the same across their Bluetooth devices so if you are familiar with it you know how easy it is.
The biggest thing for a set of headphones is how good they sound. As mentioned the Xtreme H3 features 50mm Neodymium Magnetic Drivers which are very powerful. All of the music I listened to using the headphones sounded great and the bass was actually quite powerful. I’m not going to say this headset will replace your high-end audiophile headset, but it does sound good. Also the headset features a microphone so if you happen to pair it to your phone you can take a call without having to take the headset off.
I did have a couple of issues with the headphones though. They are made of cheaper plastic, which I would have liked to have seen something better. Also since the headset has pivoting earcups that allow them to collapse a carrying bag would have been a nice addition.
The Adesso Xtreme H3 is currently selling for around $48 online. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Adesso Xtreme H3 Bluetooth headset an 8 out of 10 score.
