Vinci Smarthearable Headset review - changing how you listen to music

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 10:21:00 -0500

Vinci Smarthearables has set a bar in designing not only a listening experience, but also perfect packaging. The box announces that you are about to open something you have never experienced and follows through with the product. The box is clean, adds a bit of mystery and showcases the headphones and accessories cleanly. Of course I wanted to tear them out of the box and start using them, there is setup, a brief learning curve and the initial charging. I went ahead and placed them on the micro USB port charger (thank goodness for no custom fit chargers) for a few hours anxious to run through the setup. When you wear these out in public they certainly get noticed. As you see in the video and pictures I was sent the red pair. All the colors offered (I have seen five colors so far in pictures and demos) are vibrant and stand out. Plus the sizing of the earpieces and the screen draws attention. I am glad they have an array of colors to choose from. Let us focus on the headset layout for a brief moment. ...
