Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones Review Facts
Watch Video Review

TaoTronics prides themselves in listening to consumers and finding out what they want then finding a way to give it to them. They generally specialize in smaller electronics and accessories that can make your lives just a little better. The Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones are just one of their many products available. These headphones have amazing sound quality that many customers like. They also offer specialized noise isolating technology that will help filter out some (not all) of the ambient noise around you while you are listening to help give you a more crisp and clean sound. The integrated microphone allows you to use these to give you a hands-free calling experience. The cheap price may seem nice, but it’s important to note that they are not going to be good for long term use. They, unfortunately, do not seem to last for more than a couple of months before they stop working and customers stated that they have very poor battery life that will stop holding a charge after a few short months.

Advanced Features

There are a few more advanced features that customers can take advantage of with the Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones. First is the built-in magnets on both of the earpieces that will allow you to attach the two headphones together when they are not in use. This can help keep them from getting tangled too easily and gives you some convenience if you want to take the headphones out of your ears but you are not ready to put them away. Many users will remove the earbuds from their ears and clip the magnets together around their necks, creating a necklace. You can remove the headphones and not have to worry about losing them.

Another feature that you can take advantage of with these headphones is the noise isolating technology that is incorporated into them. They have a specialized noise cancellation feature that will help you filter out the ambient noise around you ensuring that you get a better sound quality, whether making phone calls or listening to your music. They do not necessarily work as well as some users had hoped, but they are not designed to cancel all noise, just to help filter out some of the ambient noise for a better listening experience.
Sound Quality

Sound Quality

Customers can agree that these headphones have good sound quality that they can appreciate. The Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones feature aptX audio to help ensure you continue to get amazing sound all day long. The aptX technology is great because it helps to make sure that you get the same great sound that you would get from a pair of wired headphones, without the hassle of the wires. Consumers have also mentioned that the phone call quality was decent and they had no problems hearing the caller on the other end of the phone, which is an added bonus.

To help your listening experience become even better you can take advantage of the specialized noise isolating technology that is incorporated into these earbuds. They do not do a lot to actually cancel out the noise around you, but they do help filter out some of the ambient noises to help give you a more clear and crisp sound.

Connectivity

The Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones connects to your smartphone or music player using a Bluetooth 4.1 connection to help give you an easy and stable pairing. Some users stated that it can be kind of difficult to get them to initially connect, which can become frustrating, but many more customers stated that they had no problems whatsoever. One thing that most can agree on, however, is that once you get that initial connection it is relatively easy to get them to stay connected and/or reconnect the next time you want to use them. There are few reviewers who mentioned that they will rarely get a spotty connection, but it is not enough to deter them from the use of this product. Overall, customers seem to be happy with the connection of these wireless earbuds.

Comfort

Many customers mentioned that these headphones are comfortable. It is important, especially if you are going to be wearing them for extended periods of time or while you are at the gym, to have something that is going to be comfortable so the discomfort will not distract you from the task at hand. The lightweight design helps add to the comfort level because you will not have to worry about them pulling on your ears while you are wearing them. The biggest proponent to the comfort level, however, is the great way they fit in your ears. They provide you with a snug and secure fit that runners love, as they will not fall out mid-run. You will get six different sized earbuds and ear hooks to ensure you find the best size for your ears.

Style

The Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones are a basic and plain pair of earbuds, but customers seem to really like the look and design of them. The great design of the earpiece is a fan favorite, as it ensures they will not fall out of your ears, especially while running or participating in a more vigorous workout. The magnetic feature is also a great design feature, as you can simply pull the buds out of your ears when not in use and snap them together to create a necklace for ease and convenience.

There are available in both black and blue, so you do not get a lot of color options to choose from if you are purchasing these, however, that does not seem to be a deal breaker for many customers.

Durability

One of the biggest complaints users have about the Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones is the fact that they do not last very long at all. Unfortunately, these do seem to suffer from some premature wear and tear which is extremely frustrating for many customers. Many users have mentioned that they only got a few months of use out of them before they would not hold a charge anymore and become unusable. If you are looking for a cheap pair of headphones to only use temporarily then these might work great for you, but they do not seem to be a good long term pair of earbuds.
Ease of Use
Ease of Use

Ease of Use

For the most part, the Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones are fairly easy to use. There are a few customers who had a little trouble getting the initial connection established, but that does not seem to be the norm. Many customers have commented that they do not feel like it was difficult at all. You simply turn on the Bluetooth of the device you want to connect to and then press and hold the power button until you see the LED light indicator flash red and blue, then you hear the headphones say they are looking for pairing. Select the headphones (Taotronics tt-bh07) from the Bluetooth menu of your device, your earbuds will tell you when they are connected, it is as easy as that. The next time you want to use them, they should recognize your device and connect automatically.

There are three buttons located on a hub that is connected to the wires between the earpieces that are used to control your music or phone calls without having to take your phone out of your pocket. The plus and munis buttons will adjust the volume of your music as well as skip your tracks. The middle button is used as the power and pairing button for the headphones, it will also allow you to answer and hang up calls as well as play and pause your music. The controls are not overly complicated and most users have no problems figuring them out.

Power Source

The Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones are powered by a rechargeable battery that is integrated into the media hub. They are charged using a standard micro-USB cord, which is included with the headphones when you purchase them. If you need or want a spare they are super easy to find and replace which is really nice.

The biggest problem that customers have with these is the fact that the battery life is terrible. They boast a charge lasting up to 5 hours when using them continuously, or 175 hours on standby, but users mentioned they do not come anywhere near these times. It is to be expected that after a while the battery will start to deteriorate and the charge will last for shorter and shorter amounts of time, but that seems to be extremely accelerated with this product and after only a few short months they will not stay charged at all. Yes, there are a lot of factors that are used to determine battery life, such as the volume of your music and what you are listening to, but even on low volumes listening to talk radio, the battery does not come close to the advertised 5 hours.

Price

When it comes to spending your money on a pair of headphones you are going to want to make sure you get something that is worth the money you paid for them and you want to know that they are going to last. You do not want to have to worry about having to replace them prematurely. The Taotronics Deimos Bluetooth Headphones have a very low and affordable price tag, with an MSRP of only $30, but can be found on sale on the internet for much cheaper. Unfortunately, these are not the best quality headphones and they will not last you more than a couple of months but for the low price, they might be worth it to use them as a temporary pair of workout headphones.

If you are in the market for a cheap pair of headphones that you are only going to use for a couple months then these are going to work great for you. Customers love the great fit and sound quality, however, the battery will not last you very long and they will need to be replaced after only a short time.
