VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • Audio performance is impressive. Music does not distort even at high volume.
  • The BT 460's ear cup design delivers a comfy fit.
  • The removable cable includes an inline remote control, which lets you play your music in passive mode.

CONS

  • Double-tapping on the ear cup may not always work as expected.
  • The BT 460 may dazzle passersby with all the lights, but when you're wearing the headphones, the blinking LED is largely redundant.
  • Depending on your listening behavior, the automatic play/pause feature may bug you after a while.
Phiaton's lightweight over-ear BT 460 headphones integrate a bunch of cool features including a touch interface, smart play/pause function, and multi-user sharing. Behind the scenes, the company's Acoustic Pressure Balancer minimizes the reverberation and delivers well-balanced audio with an optimized bass. You manage your tracks and handle calls using a series of taps and swipes. The BT 460 senses when you remove the Bluetooth headphones, and the unit pauses your music; when you pop them on again, the track resumes where you left off. Available in black or white, the headphones fold down for storage in the bundled carry case. The box also includes a microphone cord and a USB charging cable.

The bass is clean, defined, and rumbles. It is not bloated, muddy, nor does it lack definition.

Phiaton has done an amazing job on the sound on these headphones. Over Bluetooth these things sound stellar and wired even better! First thing is, they are loud! I mean very loud! So loud in fact, I couldn’t take it to full volume without having to take them off my head.

We love when companies experiment with new features in their products. The BT 460’s mix of features, however, do not feel well thought out for the user. Music is the BT 460’s primary function, and we would have been happy to exchange the vibration motor, LEDs, and a touch interface in exchange for better sound.

Although the LED lights on the BT 460 look cool, there are too many and they do too much.

Track control also worked perfectly...Manual pause/play, however, was much less reliable. You double-tap the touch panel, but I found that very often the headphones failed to respond.

The headphones are..smart enough to know when they’re being worn, so if you’re listening to something and have to take them off they’ll automatically stop playing until you put them back on. Though it might seem like a gimmick (and it kind of is), it’s definitely a feature that will come in handy when you least expect it.

The sound from the headphones will impress...The result is great-sounding headphones that provide bass that will impress all but the most bass-loving “bass heads.”

To say that I was quite impressed with these headphones is an understatement. They are one of the best alternatives to some of the pricier, high-end, technologically advanced headphones on the market.
