Photive PH-BTE70 are a very nice pair of Bluetooth stereo headphones with likable sound signature, fast pairing capability, and sweat proof design. Unlike many other wireless headphones, the integrated controls are actually very usable thanks to the uniquely designed ear hooks.

There is a good reason why headphones and earphone by Photive have become synonymous with great quality and fantastic value. PH-BTE70 continue this trend and in many ways set a new standard for wireless earbuds. All of this thanks to advance sound technology, great design with secure with, and sound that can rival even three times more expensive models.


Designed of these earphones is focused on perfect security during physical activity. This is made possible thanks to flexible stabilizing ear hooks that not only stay firmly anchored to your ears but also maintain a fit that’s comfortable even during long workout sessions. There is no need for constant readjustment as is often the case with memory wire earbuds. You simply put them on and forget about them.

The simple black housing looks universally great on both men and women, and there’s no chance that you would get tired of it any time soon.

Build quality

PH-BTE70 use a thin layer of Liquipel to ensure high protection from moisture and sweat. This special substance helps to repel liquids without adding unnecessary weight and bulk to them. Indeed, running in heavy rain or sweating in hot weather caused no issues at all, and the sound quality remained the same.

The earhooks are very flexible and it’s highly unlikely that they would break without some serious abuse. They provide enough give to accommodate all ear sizes and shapes.

Instead of in-line controller, everything is integrated directly to the left earbud. It takes just a single touch of a button to turn the headphones on or off, answer calls, or control music playback. The buttons have low resistance, which means that you can comfortably control everything with just one hand.

Sound quality

Everybody who listened to Photive PH-BTE70 instantly felt in love with their musical sound signature. They have this very characteristic spacious presentation that will make you believe that you are sitting in the center of a large concert hall. You can clearly hear all instruments and they harmonically contribute to an appealing blend of high, mid, and low frequencies.

Bass frequencies have a nice kick to them and mids are placed nicely forward to make vocals stand out and help you get to the rhythm of your music. Even highs have a nice spark and extend far enough to compete even with many much more expensive headphones.

What is in the box?

The packaging includes three different sizes of replaceable ear tips, one micro USB charging cable, carry pouch, and 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
