Optoma NuForce BE6i is one of the best selling sports Bluetooth headphones on Amazon and if you are looking for a Bluetooth headphone under $100 then you should definitely read this review and find out if this headphone is for you or not.
The Optoma NuForce has a wide Bluetooth headphones range and this one probably is the most simple sports Bluetooth headphone when it comes to the design.
Design and Build Quality
As mentioned above, this Bluetooth headphone has a simple design and the metallic color looks gorgeous. The manufacturers have kept the design of these headphones really simple and I would have preferred a wire adjuster so that they would stay in place better while doing exercises.
The Build quality of these headphones is pretty okayish and I felt that the inline remove felt a bit flimsy. I wouldn’t complain if the headphones cost much less than what it is now but since it is priced well, I think they could have done some improvements on the design and quality of these Bluetooth headphones.
Overall, the build quality and design of these headphones is not that great and you can definitely find better premium headphones in the similar price range on Amazon.
The sound quality on these headphones was average and honestly, I did not find anything special about it. It was clear and crisp and the noise cancellation is pretty good when you hear it at full volume. You have the option to choose the comply foam ear tips that give you a better seal and much better noise cancellation.
The sound quality of these headphones definitely could have been better and talk about the connectivity, well, it is not that good and you can definitely find cheaper headphones with better or similar connectivity standards, LOL.
While reviewing these headphones, the only feeling that grew stronger was that there are many other Bluetooth headphones in the similar price range that offer better and some are even cheaper than this one, so what is the point of buying the Optoma Nuforce.
The comfort level on these headphones is pretty bad and probably the most disappointing feature of these headphones. The earbuds are heavy and I felt that they were a little too bulky for my ears so they constantly kept falling off. This was the most annoying part about these headphones.
They do come with different ear tips and you have a lot of options to choose from but I think they could have done better with these headphones and most of the ear tips that fit me well, fell off as well while running or doing jumping jacks.
COmfort is something that can depend on the person so I could say that you can give this headphone a try and see it for yourself if it fits you well or not and then keep the purchase else you can always return them.
By this point, I didn’t even care if the headphones were durable, LOL. I was pretty sure I’m not going to use them that often so there is no way to even care about this feature.
Just stating the obvious here, these sports Bluetooth headphones are waterproof and sweatproof. You cannot drop them in pools or take them swimming but these can definitely stand a few splashes of water without any issues.
I really did not feel like using these headphones to test the battery life but as stated in the pack that they last for 8 hours, instead it lasted less than that. I think they would last around 6-7 hours which is pretty decent.
The headphones come with a charger which you can plug in to charge these headphones. They also come with a dust bag so that you can store these headphones in them when you are not listening to music.
These headphones are really average and they are priced quite high for the features that they offer. There are much better options in the same price range and if you really want to invest your money in premium headphones then you can take a look at the Jaybird X3 s that are priced $10 more than this one.
Few other affordable alternatives would be Jaybird Freedom F5 and Plantronics Backbeat Fit. These headphones have a much better fit and a better design as well. The important feature on these two headphones is that they don’t fall off the ears which is pretty important for any sports Bluetooth headphones.
