These are not limited to use for your workouts. Many users will wear them for their long commutes to help them tune out the world around them. Others enjoy them just for their normal everyday activities when they want to enjoy a little music in their lives.
The headphones have a built-in microphone in them that reviewers say works fairly well, as long as you are using them in quieter environments as the microphone is located in the earbud itself.
Depending on what you are doing when you are listening, you can either choose between listening with passive noise isolation turned on or audio transparency. Passive noise isolations which essentially creates a seal around the headphones and helps you tune out the noise around you. Audio transparency will allow you to listen to your music while still being able to be aware of the world around you, which is ideal if you are doing a lot of running outdoors.
The call quality of these headphones are not the greatest but they can work in a pinch. The microphone is located in the earbud, which is in your ear, so it can be a little difficult to pick up what you are saying, especially if you are in a busy and rather loud area. If you are looking for something to wear for taking phone calls, whether personal or business, you might want to consider a different option.
The audio transparency features work great with these headphones. They will allow you to listen to your music and still be aware of what is going on around you. This is ideal for anyone who does a lot of outdoor running and needs to be aware of their surroundings to keep themselves safe. In order to take advantage of the noise isolating features, you are going to want to make sure you find an ear tip that will fit snuggly in your ear and even then customers stated that this feature does not work the best. If you need noise canceling headphones there might be better options for you.
These are going to connect wirelessly through a Bluetooth connection to any device that is capable of this feature. You will have no problems getting these to connect to your smartphone, whether you are using an iPhone or Android device. You are not limited to phones, however, you can connect to your fitness watch or your computer, as long as they have the ability to connect through that Bluetooth.
There are no other color options for these earbuds other than black, but that does not seem to be a problem with customers as they sit in your ear and are barely noticeable.
Ease of Use
When you are setting these up you will need to get them paired to your device. You will have to turn on your Bluetooth and then press and hold the power button for three seconds. You will select "Bragi HP" from the Bluetooth section of your device. That part is super easy, barely an inconvenience. The problem generally lies with turning them on in the future, as many people will accidentally set them to re-pair instead of just powering them on. The trick is to just press the button briefly instead of waiting for the LED to come on. Once you have that initial pairing there will be no problems getting them to automatically connect in the future.
The three buttons on the right earbud navigate the rest of the features. The power button is also used to answer and end phone calls or to pause and play your music. The arrow buttons are used to adjust your volume, as well as skip your songs if you want to.
There are a lot of factors that come into play when determining the battery life of a pair of headphones. If you are listening to loud, bass-heavy, music then your battery will drain significantly faster than if you were listening to the news or a podcast at a moderate volume. That being said, the Bragi earbuds boast a battery life of 6 hours which is actually pretty good for this type of product. Customers do not seem to have many complaints about the battery of these headphones.
