Foldable. The ability to fold the headband is a pretty neat feature that is perfect for people who need to toss their headphones in their gym bag.
Comfortable. The Mobiband utilizes the old school square foam pads along with an adjustable headband to create a good fit.
Not Sweat Proof. While we didn’t experience any damage while testing, we probably wouldn’t recommend these headphones to people who sweat a lot unless the manufacturer could guarantee no damage (which at this point they don’t).
Poor Bass Response. Overall sound was pretty good, but we prefer a higher bass response, especially when working out.
When we first read about the Mobiband they were being compared to the Jaybird Sportsband, but with the added ability for the band to fold. While this is a pretty cool feature, it’s not revolutionary. Jabra also has a very popular sports headset called the Halo 2 that is almost identical to the Mobiband. So, how did they stack up?
Well, we’re a big fan of sports bands so we were excited to get our hands on Mobiband. First off, we love the foldable design. It’s way easier to carry a pair of headphones when they can collapse so you can toss them in your bag. It also makes them a lot easier to carry on a plane, etc.
The design was great and we had no problems getting a comfortable fit. The headband is primarily plastic and you can get them in white or black (matte). Each side of the headband is adjustable about half way down the band in the same place it folds.
The right earphone houses the only pressable button which powers on the headphones and their Bluetooth capabilities. Just above that large button are smaller buttons for volume control and track skipping. One feature that isn’t mentioned often is the Siri capabilities that are build into Mobiband. If you press and hold the power button it will activate Siri on your iPhone making it perfect for anyone running or walking with their headphones.
One thing to note is a comment by BBP:
“For you audiophiles, BBP decided not to go with APT-x because IOS and Android both do not natively support it.”
Audiophiles may want to check out something with a bit better sound quality if that is a concern. We didn’t notice much a difference.
