There’s not a whole heck of a lot to get super excited over with these new ActionFit Bluetooth headphones from Philips, unless you intend to use them while building up a sweat. Tech-wise they’re A2DP, AVRCP and Handsfree Headset compatible so you can use them as headphones or for answering/making calls. And a set of mics allows for noise cancelling technologies to do their thing so you can be heard no matter the conditions.
Its built-in lithium-polymer rechargeable battery is good for about 4 1/2 hours of music playback or talk time, with 200 hours of standby time. But the real reason most people will opt for this particular set of Bluetooth headphones is the fact that they’re waterproof and can be rinsed under the tap if you happened to work up a real sweat while wearing them. Headphones, particularly the in-ear variety, can get kind of gross at times, so being able to just dunk the whole kit and caboodle instead of having to carefully remove and clean the silicon caps separately is a real convenience. $129.95, available from Apple or your favorite headphone retailer.
