Letscom U8I Bluetooth Headphones are an athletic in-ear headphone with an ear-hook design. They are great for athletics and offer many great capabilities for their economical price.

Capabilities:

As their name states, the Letscom U8I Bluetooth Headphones are Bluetooth capable. They sync to Bluetooth 4.1 instead of Bluetooth 5.0. The Bluetooth 4.1 wireless connectivity provides up 33 feet of distance for connections if the line of connection is clear. There is also basic auto-pairing that comes with the Bluetooth to connect the headphones to your smart device.

The built-in microphone uses CVC 6.0 digital noise cancelling technology. This reduces noise and distortion within the microphone signal. When using the microphone, it will give a consistent ambient sound surrounding you for the duration. CVC 6.0 technology is capable of reducing noise by about 30dB. In comparison, foam earplugs typically block 32dB of sound.

Sound:

Comfort and Fit:

Because of the low budget price, there are no special features with the ear-hooks giving you the capability to adjust or change their size.
