What Hi-Fi? Verdict

These stylish on-ear Bluetooth headphones are cheap enough, but we'd spend that little bit extra and get a better sound

Pros

  • + Very affordable
  • + good battery life
  • + on board controls
  • + detailed sound

Cons

  • - Overly bright
  • - lack warmth and intimacy
  • - uncomfortable

The Santok Bluetooth headphones are nigh-on identical to the Jaybird SB2s in design.

You won't get the jazzy colours, though, and there's no sign of apt-X. An average 10m range and 8-hour battery life does, however, come with the knockdown price tag.

There are standard volume, track and call controls on board, but Santok's pads are a little less comfortable than Jaybird's.

Sonically, Foals' 2 Trees sounds delicate and detailed, but lacks the warmth and intimacy of others, and there's tendency to brightness at times. We'd pay a little more.
