66 Audio BTS Pro headphones review – comfort, quality and affordable

Can’t decide on earphones or headphones? Then why not have combination of both with the BTS Pro from 66 Audio which are stylish and comfortable – and sound great.

The wireless BTS Pro sits on your ears with memory foam cushions with the thin flexible silicone band sitting behind your neck – out of the way so you can run, cycle or hit the gym.

The advantage of this design is a larger earcup and therefore a larger driver you’d get from a regular pair of headphones but without the bulk and the large head band.

And they’ll also appeal to customers who don’t want to stick anything into their ear or who can’t find the right fit with earphones

So while you’re getting a big sound – you’re not wearing a big device.

The BTS Pro is sweatproof, lightweight and ergonomic so it can be your new exercise companion.

Onboard is Bluetooth 4.2 which gives it an extended range of about 30m so you can easily walk around your home or office streaming music without having to carry your phone with you.

And it’s easy to control your music and adjust the volume on the BTS Pro so you can leave your phone where it is – a handy feature when you’re exercising or commuting.

The BTS Pro from 66 Audio look great and fit great but what about under the hood?

Onboard are 36mm high-density drivers that work hand in hand with the 66 Sound Engine to deliver a full frequency of 20Hz to 20kHz which covers the range of human hearing.

Also in the mix is the BTS Pro filter that can eliminate distortion.

If you’re streaming from your iPhone, you’ll have the advantage of the AAC codec and if you’ve linked your Mac you’ll enjoy the quality of aptX. You’ve got quality with either choice.

Listeners can also download the BTS Pro companion iOS app to tweak the sound even further with a multi-band equalizer and Bass Boost.

The app will also run on your Apple Watch if you have one.

Users also have a Find your Headphones feature so you’ll never be without them.

And we found the results breathtaking.

Tech Guide put the BTS Pro through its paces listening to a variety of music and it wowed us every time.

From crashing rock to intricate ballads and detailed electronic music, the BTS Pro handled it all with ease and delivered stunning audio.

What impressed us was scale and authority of the sound. The bass was right and the detail was spot on. Our music sounded great.

Another strong feature of the BTS Pro is the battery life which runs for an amazing 40 hours before they need a recharge through the onboard USB-C port.

One weakness we noticed was the quality of the audio when making phone calls. The calls sounded a little distant to us.

We also noticed when the headphones were loose in our bag they sometimes turned on and when we’d receive a call we couldn’t hear anything because the call was going through the headphones.

But that was our fault for not packing the BTS Pro headphones into the hard carry case which comes with it in the box.

The BTS Pro are priced at $167 from 66Audio.com. If you purchase before December 20 and use the code HOLIDAYSHIP it will be shipped for free.

VERDICT

The BTS Pro headphones from Audio 66 are comfortable and affordable and offer the sort of sound quality you’ll usually pay hundreds of dollars more to hear.
