Review: BlueAnt Embrace Stereo Headphones
BlueAnt Embrace are not only solid in design and durability but also pack a level of comfort for hours of music listening. One thing that sets the Embrace from other over-ear headphones is that it comes with two cables: a standard audio cable and a blue audio/microphone cable with volume controls that allow you to take calls while on your iPhone or other smartphone.
The BlueAnt Embrace at the time of writing have a suggested retail price of $199.99 and although this price is likely steep for many casual headphone users the price is well worth it and there are headphones on the market that are more expensive and yet offer the same level of quality.
When you open the BlueAnt Embrace box you will find a pair of Embrace headphones and a leather carrying cause and additionally a standard audio cable and a blue straight-through cable, which allows the device to make phone calls as a headset or move between songs with the small in-line.
Sound and Comfort
The BlueAnt Embrace can pass muster of any audiophile who has grown to accustom to the higher end audio brands such as Bose, Klipsch and Bowers & Wilkins. As someone who has tried all of the aforementioned brands competing headphones I would have to without any uncertainty say the Embrace headphones provide excellent quality.
The Embrace headphones offer adjustable sizing coupled with cushioned padding to keep your ears comfortable through hours of continuous use. The only issue I ran into with comfort is the cushioned padding that protects your ears could use some tweaking because right now they seem to cut it a little close in diameter.
All in all I tested the EMBRACE headphones on packed public transportation and even wore them during a large demonstration and there was no interruption of my listening experience.
The Bottom Line
BlueAnt Embrace Stereo Headphones are an outstanding product and for $199.99 they would appear to be able to withstand much wear and tear making them a long-term solution to your listening needs.
