BlueAnt has launched their first Wired Stereo Headphones and it is the stylish EMBRACE. The EMBRACE will compete in the same segment as the Bowers & Wilkins P5, V-MODA Cross-fade LP, and Beats by Dr. Dre. The $199.99 price tag seems like a lot but is $100 cheaper than the comparable Bower & Wilkins P5 which sells for $300.
The BlueAnt EMBRACE Wired On-Ear Headphones were made for travel as they are lightweight and stylish. They pair well with your iPods, iPhone and iPads to listen to your music while still having the ability to make or receive a call. The Embrace includes an audio cable for headphone listening and also a blue cable with remote and mic for making and taking calls. The included leather style case fits the EMBRACE perfectly and will keep the headset safe when traveling. The included OMTP adapter gives you more options to connect to a range of devices that support this feature.
The EMBRACE sounds just right when it comes to sound compared to the high tuned bass of the Cross-fade LP and Beats headphones. The BlueAnt EMBRACE works well in all kinds of music genres from Rock to R&B to classical these headphones shines. The EMBRACE has a neutral balanced sound that I like compared to the overly artificial bass sound that the Beats by Dr Dre has. The headphones also do a good job of blocking out background noise so you can enjoy your music without distraction.
After trying the headphones for several weeks I would highly recommend you check out the BlueAnt EMBRACE. The BlueAnt EMBRACE sounds great and is one of the best looking headphones I have tried. The lower MSRP price tag and quality craftsmanship along with the luxurious fit and finish set the EMBRACE apart from the crowd.
