Bluetooth Headphone Review: Phiaton Adds Noise Cancellation and Multipoint Connection

Bluetooth Headphone Review: Phiaton Adds Noise Cancellation and Multipoint Connection

Bluetooth headphones are all the rage, thanks to the elimination of the headphone jack in the iPhone 7. Speaking of elimination, the Phiaton BT-330NC Noise-Cancelling Headphones ($199) eliminate up to 95 percent of background noise, thanks to dual microphones which sense and cancel out background noise. 

 

They also have a feature not usually found in Bluetooth headphones, namely Multipoint Connection. This means the headphones can be paired to two different Bluetooth audio devices at the same time. This allows you to pair them with your iPhone and your iPad, for example, so you could alternate between music and movies. I wish I had this on my recent 7-hour train ride to New York City. Speaking of hours, the BT-330NC headphons have a whopping 14-hour battery life. They are collapsible and use quality materials like metal and leather and an audio cable is included if needed. The $199 list price is on the high end, but I've found them on Amazon and elsewhere for under $140. 

Pros

  • Noise canceling
  • Multipoint Connection
  • 14 hour battery life
  • Collapsible
  • Audio cable included

Cons

  • Expensive, but discounted online

Final Verdict

If you are looking for noise-canceling headphones that can be wirelessly paired simultaneously to multiple audio sources, the BT-330NC Noise-Cancelling Headphones from Phiaton will meet your needs.
