Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Phiaton have created a solid pair of earphones in the BT110. They produce great sounding audio with deeper bass than average earphones; they also provide some degree of passive noise cancellation, the only demerit is some minor static that most wireless devices are subjected to. Battery life on the BT110 is decent at around 4.5-5 and the headset recharges in under two hours. Connectivity suffered outdoors a bit, moving the phone closer to headset seemed to remedy this issue. Overall, I had a pleasant experience with BT110, they are more comfortable to wear than wired earphones, and they sound excellent especially when playing Hi-Fi audio.

Unless you have a smartphone whose software and hardware support 24-bit FLAC playback (eg HTC 10), you will hard pressed to find a better mobile listening experience than that provided by high quality, aptX headphones and earphones. Phiaton’s BT110 are an excellent example; they produce rich, low-latency audio and only exhibit problems you would find most other wireless headsets.

The BT110 comes with a multitude of interchangeable attachments to ensure comfort for any user. Only wearing hooded sweaters did I find the BT110 awkward to wear. Otherwise the headset fits comfortably, the device is also light and causes no fatigue due to weight.

Most modern hands-free and media profiles are supported by the BT110, it allows easy switching of tracks, and handling of calls. Unfortunately, I was not able to get the headset to work with Google now, but it did work in Windows 10 with Cortana.

Currently sold online for $88.00 (Amazon), the Phiaton BT 110 Compact Bluetooth 4.0 Sport Earphones with Mic is a reasonable purchase; there are similar priced earphones that excel in different areas such as battery duration.

Chances are your device does not include an amp suitable for streaming of Hi-Fi audio files. Using a Bluetooth aptX headset like the BT110 can provide a better listening experience than wired headsets, at least for most mobile phones, and should considered when one is purchasing a high end audio hardware.
