Aita BT804 Wireless Bluetooth On-Ear Foldable Headset

This has to be one of the most inexpensive over ear Bluetooth headphones I have tried but was in fact rather better than I feared. Inside the box aside from the headset itself was a standard mini-jack to mini-jack audio cable, a charging cable, and a small, hard to read, but reasonably comprehensive User Guide albeit in Google Translated English. I reproduce the User Guide at the end of my unboxing video.

The headset is very lightweight and looks rather cheap , the body feels a bit flimsy and the headband and earcup padding is thin and unsupportive and with visible trailing wires leading to the earcups. That said, the construction quality seems OK to me with no sign of the padding on the band working loose, poor stitching, or weak joints – all elements that have failed on similar headsets I have owned in the past. Time will tell and if something fails in the future I will update the review accordingly.

The headset is supplied with a plain audio cable and a USB to micro-USB charging cable but both work perfectly adequately. The track and volume controls are nicely positioned and very easy to find and identify by sight if not by touch. The headset folds well for storage although the mechanism is a bit stiff.

Bluetooth Pairing simple enough and achieved in the usual way by depressing the Multifunction/Power button for several seconds. Once paired I found the connection to be stable and strong. A nice touch is that the headset can pair to two devices at once. The headset will also work with the supplied audio cable when the battery fails and there is little if any difference in quality when used in either mode.

The most important feature of any headset is the audio quality, and bearing in mind that this is a budget device I was fairly happy with the sound. There is a decent amount of bass and it is clear, smooth and undistorted. Mid tones are clear and detailed and very easy to listen to. The sound is rather flat but comfortable and never abrasive or sibilant, at least to my ears. The sound is OK, not bad but nothing to write home about.

This a well made set of headphones, lightweight and comfortable to wear with decent sound quality and at a price that cannot be bettered. These would be a great for use as a backup or as a first set for a youngster.
