audio-technica ATH-AR3BT Description

The AR3BT is a classy yet affordable wireless headphone packed with the latest technology and features.

With fresh new looks and a new innovative 40mm diver, the AR3BT is one of the key headphones to consider if you're looking for an On-Ear wireless headphone for around the £100 mark.

The headphones aren't just pretty. They have state of the art wireless technology, foldable design, controls and a microphone. The battery will last up to 30 hours and has a standby time of up to 1,000 hours. They also have to be one of the best looking headphones in the on-ear market. Both the Black (ATH-AR3BTBK) and the White (ATH-AR3BTWH) look stunning, and are finished to a very high standard.

The AR3BT now supports aptX, ACC codec's and can be paired with devices via NFC. This means you can simply touch the headphones with compatible technology (NFC) and the two items will then pair without any lengthy set ups. The headphones will allow for up to 8 devices to be paired, so wherever you go, you will be able to stay connected to your favourite tunes.

Generally the trend going forward is for most wireless devices to be NFC compatible, so having this technology makes these headphones quite future proof. For instance, you could pair your headphones with your tv, radio, phone, tablet and much more. You can then simply switch source device and continue your listening without disrupting anyone.

The AR3BT is also aptX compliant. This allows the headphones to receive greater amounts of data from larger distances. This greatly increases the clarity of the audio due to more data being served. The headphones boast a whopping 30 hours continuous play, with a 1,000 hour standby. They can also be used within 10m line of sight. However this is more like 5m inside with walls and equipment in the way.

What Do The AR3BT Sound Like?

What Do The AR3BT Sound Like?

The AR3 range have a new 40mm driver that produces crisp and punchy mids whilst delivering fine and controlled treble. They don't push out as much bass as their older brother (ATH-SR5BT) but they still manage to produce some fine tight bass none the less.

Even out of the box they sound quite sweet, however they will always sound better once you have been playing them for at least 24 hours (just leave them playing in the background via wired connection). The sound style is very universal and would suite all music types.

Overall they a fun pair of headphones that forces you to re-listen to your music collection all over again.

audio-technica ATH-AR3BT Professional Reviews

Please note that professional reviews for headphones are much more varied than traditional Hi-Fi. With Bookshelf Speakers and the likes, it's quite often to get 5 stars straight across the board. With Headphones, it's very rare that everyone agrees on the quality of the product, therefore straight 5 star reviews are very rare. Critically acclaimed headphones will generally average around 4 stars regardless of performance, so don't be put off by this.

That being said, we always prefer to show each review where possible, even if the review isn't so flattering. It is after all a very subjective opinion as everyone has different hearing abilities and preferred styles. Think of it like wine, you can buy a £100 bottle, but prefer a £6. At the end of the day it's down to taste and taste alone.
