They’re not the smallest Bluetooth wireless headphones out there, but I’m going to jump to the conclusion that Outdoor Technology’s new Bluetooth Tags headphones are somewhat weather-resistant given the nature of the company’s other products, so I’ll cut them some slack. At the least I’d say they’re comparable in size to other wireless headphone solutions since you need to cram both the BT hardware and a rechargeable battery in there, and I assume the power and audio signal are shared between the two earbuds via the cord that connects them.
After a 2+ hour charge you can expect to get up to 5 hours of audio playback, 6 hours of talk time (the headphones double as a hands-free Bluetooth headset) and up to 120 hours of standby. On one side you’ll also find a set of playback buttons for controlling your music, or making or placing a call when connected to a smartphone. They’re $79.95 a pair, which isn’t too unreasonable given the wireless functionality, and are available in a red or black finish.
