Op­toma NuForce BE Sport3

Some of the best wire­less head­phones you can buy

£80 FROM Op­toma, op­toma.co.uk fea­tures IP55 rat­ing, 10-hour bat­tery life, noise iso­la­tion

These are some of the best wire­less in-ear head­phones

on the mar­ket. They’re made from alu­minum and rub­ber, and feel very solid, es­pe­cially since the buds are milled out of alu­minum. They’re also mag­netic, so they won’t flop around on your chest when not in use.

Their IP55 rat­ing means they’re rain, dust and sweat re­sis­tant. Don’t go swim­ming with them, but they should put up with abuse at the gym.

Once in place, you’ll be treated to bal­anced sound that works well for ev­ery genre, and in­cred­i­ble noise iso­la­tion. Al­though the BE Sport3 aren’t the last word in res­o­lu­tion or dy­nam­ics, the slightly boosted bass re­sponse and rolled off highs are good, es­pe­cially when you con­sider the price.

Against the com­pe­ti­tion, the NuForce BE Sport3 of­fer tremen­dous value. One of the most pop­u­lar pairs of wire­less work­out head­phones, the Jay­bird Free­dom Wire­less, of­fer worse sound, four hours of bat­tery life with­out its charg­ing cra­dle, as well as a frus­trat­ing fit. To make things worse, those buds cost over twice as much at £170.

Op­toma re­ally knocked it out of the park with the BE Sport3 head­phones. They’re amaz­ing value for a pair of wire­less head­phones that sound good, last all day long, have a bul­let­proof build and in­cred­i­ble noise iso­la­tion. While they’re not the most dy­namic or re­solv­ing pair of head­phones, Op­toma shows us that the fu­ture of wire­less head­phones is a bright one.

These head­phones are an in­cred­i­ble bar­gain for what they of­fer.
