Thanks again for trusting this website for all your headphones reviews needs. This time we review the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC, which will probably be of interest for anyone looking for a pair that they can carry around easily.
These are in-ear headphones that are meant to make you enjoy your music more than the default ones that come with your phone or MP3 player, so let’s see if they’re worth the price.
The main attraction on this model seems to be the Bluetooth 3.0 technology, but surely there’s a little bit more to them.
The Phiaton PS 210 BTNC is an in-ear model that focuses on noise reduction, on both the receiving and transmitting ends.
They’re meant to work well during phone calls and while listening music in a crowd. It includes EverPlay-X technology, which allows you to listen to your music even longer.
What I liked
First of all, the Bluetooth technology on the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC seems to be working flawlessly. I’ve had no interference or problem with the sound. I was under the impression that these headphones were wired all the time and that I used them for this test.
But what I liked the most about these headphones is just how much they block sound. It’s almost scary at first if you’re not used to being closed in your head when you listen to your music. The description states that they block up to 95% of the sound, and I’m not sure how to verify that, but they certainly cancel noise more than just about any pair of headphones I’ve put on my ears.
So this, in my opinion, should be the main buying argument in favor of the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC – the ability to listen to your music in just about any noisy environment, including buses and other busy locations.
With the microphone, you can also use those to get your important calls when noise becomes an issue, and the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC is about just as good when it comes to cancelling noise around you. At least that’s what my callers said when I asked them about the quality.
As for the sound itself, since these are in-ear headphones, I didn’t notice anything in particular except that they perform well across all kinds of music. The sound was clear and I was able to enjoy all the sounds of my favorite artists wherever I went.
Really with the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC, it’s good to get the same audio experience as you do at home when you’re in between four walls of tranquility. The Phiaton PS 210 make you feel exactly that, and that’s what I appreciate the most about them.
Unfortunately, with a company that’s a bit less known, you can land on a few defective products, and it seems like this happened to a few customers, although this doesn’t take away from the general appreciation of the product in any way.
Maybe the quality of the build on this model could be improved, because for $130, I agree that breaks and defects shouldn’t happen.
What I didn’t like
Maybe the only thing I didn’t like was that I thought these headphones could’ve come a little cheaper. It’s not like they offer anything out of this world maybe except the superior noise blocking.
And referring to the earlier comments about building quality, I must say that my pair held fine, but I’m a bit concerned too about the durability of these on the long-term. For $130, I would expect the Phiaton PS 210 BTNC to last several years, but for some reason I think these could fail before their time.
So to sum up this review, if noise blocking and portability are your two first priorities, certainly give these headphones a shot.
If you’re just on the market shopping for whatever good headphones you can land on, maybe some shopping would be necessary before you choose to go with these, because there are plenty of good competitors too.
The Phiaton PS 210 BTNC is certainly a model ideal for any regular user of public transportation. I still think the positives outweigh the negatives on this one though.
