VERDICT

With the discount coupon code available (R5I3MD3M) there’s absolutely no reason not to buy the SmartOmi Boots. Even if you have no use for them yourself, get them for somebody you love.

Bluetooth headphones are old news. These days, it’s all about fully wireless headphones. We’re talking about headphones with no wire connecting the left earbud with the right earbud. The main advantage of the absence of the wire is the noticeable increase in comfort, especially when playing sports or doing outdoor activities. Arguably the most popular fully wireless headphones on the market are the SmartOmi Booth Mini wireless Bluetooth headphones. Given their sound and build quality, they don’t cost much even at full retail price, but you can save 15% by using the coupon code R5I3MD3M.

Build and Design

Manufacturers of fully wireless headphones have to figure out how to pack a sizable headphone driver and battery inside a very small, lightweight body. It’s astonishing just how tiny the SmartOmi Boots are when you consider that they last up to 5 hours on a single charge and 200 hours in standby. If you run out of juice, it takes just 2 hours to charge the battery to its maximum capacity.

SmartOmi offer only a single version of the headphones, black with silver metallic accents. As such, the headphones look just as good on board of an airplane as they do in the gym. The sensitive electronic components inside are protected against water and dirt, allowing you to use them even when it rains.

Probably the biggest downside to fully wireless headphones is the fact that nothing prevents them from falling on the ground and possibly breaking. SmartOmi solved this by making the headphones casing so slim that you can insert it quite deep inside your ears to achieve a very secure fit.

The headphones have a built-in microphone and a dedicated button for Siri and Google Now. Pairing is realized via Bluetooth 4.1, and it takes just a few seconds to discover and pair the headphones with any compatible Bluetooth-enabled devices.

Sound Quality

Would you expect tiny wireless headphones to sound on par with some of the more expensive wired headphones from renowned audio brands? No? In that case, you would be making a huge mistake. The SmartOmi Boots Mini wireless earbuds sound downright fantastic.

The sound quality is similar to mid-range full-size Sennheiser headphones because of its tonal balance and accurate sound representation. The latest generation of Bluetooth ensures excellent signal strength and high-bitrate sound that’s virtually indistinguishable from wired headphones.

What’s in the Box?

The SmartOmi Boots come with three sets of replaceable eartips, three sets of earhooks, one hard-shell carrying case, one USB charging cable, and a very clever charging dock. You can place the charging dock on your desk, and it will automatically start charging the earbuds as soon as you put them in.
