Review: Adidas RPT-01 Bluetooth Sport Headphones

In a world of true wireless earphones, it is almost rare to see a set of ‘proper’ headphones being aimed at people performing sports. But Adidas is more known for its sportswear than its electronics, and that is why they have come up with the RPT-01 Bluetooth Sport Headphones, that are not only aimed at people moving about or playing sports, but have actually had some thought process go in the design too.

Look and feel

The headphones look pretty nice, and the padding all around gives them generally a soft feel. They are built to last, and you can easily throw them in your gym bag and knock them about a bit. Bit of bending and rocking and stuff like that, they’ll happily take.

I did find that they were quite tight on my head though, and there is nothing you can do to change that. They are designed to stay on while you run and do various exercises, and for me it was just a bit too tight. Might work perfectly fine for others though.

Washable

One highlight of these headphones, and something that sets them apart is the fact that you can take all the padding and the ear cushions off and wash them.

Setup

Pretty much like any other Bluetooth headphones, you turn them on and pair them.

Zoom call?

Unlike some Bluetooth headphones, these actually tick the Zoom/Skype/Hangouts etc phone call box, as they work very well with computers.

Sound Quality

The sound quality is pretty decent. It is true to what it needs to be, and has a certain warmth to it. As you go from various sounds, like classic, all the way to heavy metal, you get reasonably true to form output.

Ease of use

Generally, the three buttons on it allow fairly easy use. There is also a programmable button which can be configured using the app, but it has limited usability.

Verdict

The sound quality is pretty good, but the main advantage of these headphones are for the sporty folk who don’t like in-ear headphones. If you struggle with those, but want music while being out and about, the Adidas RPT-01 are the headphones for you!
