Whatever streaming service, genre or format; a good pair of headphones is a must. Community member Fraser Fleming road-tested the Trekz Titanium Bluetooth headphones.

“These deliver their sound in a different and clever way to your average headphones. Called ‘bone conduction’, this technology transfers sound through your cheekbone, leaving your normal hearing unimpaired. This is great from a visually impaired point of view, as you can wear them when you’re out and about without limiting your hearing.

The design was minimal and they are extremely lightweight. The headset is very comfortable to wear and after a few minutes, you forget it’s there.

Sound quality is very impressive. It’s very clear and has enough power to enable listening on a noisy train. They come with earplugs, if the outside world gets too much. The only issue with the sound is the bass, which is very quiet compared with the rest of the sound, but this is due to the way the sound is transmitted.

Another useful feature is the ability to pair the headphones with two devices, so I can use them on my way to work on my phone, then on my work PC without having to re-pair them.

I’m very happy with my new headphones and would recommend them.”
