Excellent value for money, easy to use, long battery life and great bass coverage. That’s just a few of the great features found on these Hbuds H1 Bluetooth headphones. Volume control, track forward and backward and pause can all be controlled from the right hand headset. The best features of these headphones are their excellent response to the lower base frequencies, their lightweight design and comfortable fit.

This short 8 minute video demonstrates the main features and functions of the H1 headphones.

Music Control

My favourite features, aside from the excellent sound quality, is the music control. As someone who listens to music while training – having the ability to control the the TRACK and VOLUME from the earpiece is very convenient. There are two easy to access buttons on top of the earpiece (right side). A quick tap will increase / decrease the volume. Press and hold will move the track forward and back

9 Hours Battery Life

With a solid battery life over 9 hours, from a 1.5 hour charge and a standby battery life of over 250 hours they perform better than other more expensive brands.

    You can’t SWIM in the H1 headphones, but they are fine to get wet. They have been rated to IPX7 meaning they can be submerged to a depth of 1m for a short period of time. In the real world this means you can run in the rain, get sweaty in the gym or even drop them in the bath …

    Secure Fit

    The earhook has been designed to flex up to 90° for a secure and comfortable fit.



    Summary & Conclusion

    CardioCritic has awarded the HBUDS H1 headphones a solid 4.5 / 5 Star Review rating. It would be hard to find a set of wireless headphones that feature such good audio response for a similar price, around £20 / $25. Music control, water resistant to IPX7, 9 hour playback, built-in microphone, a variety of eartips and many more features make the H1 headphones excellent Value for Money
