PROS

  • These cans come at an attractive price for what you get: a pretty comfy fit, 12 hours of battery life, onboard controls, and Bluetooth 4.0.
  • The PH-BTH3 feels reasonably lightweight, and the bundle includes a durable travel case.
  • Bluetooth connectivity is stable.

CONS

  • While the audio sounds balanced overall, the bass is not particularly powerful.
  • If you're after a bold or eye-catching design, you won't get that with the PH-BTH3.
  • The headphones do not collapse.
These over-ear headphones offer 40 mm drivers to deliver well-balanced sound across the board. The PH-BTH3 provides soft ear cups and a headband with a lot of give in the adjustment department. Plus, the ear cups rotate considerably, which allows for a good fit. Both ear cups provide built-in controls, including a Play/Pause button on the left and a power button and dedicated volume controls on the right. The advertised battery life is 12 hours, but Photive says you can eke more juice from these cans—up to 15 hours of successive play time. The closed-back PH-BTH3 can be used for phone calls thanks to the integrated microphone. The box includes a hard travel case, micro USB charging cord, and 3.5 mm audio cable.

The highs are clear and crisp, almost to a fault. The highs aren’t overly emphasized, but there is a crisp sort of sizzle to the highs that isn’t always apparent, but was noticeable on some songs.

I've tried bass heavy hip-hop, choral music like Anuna and Karl Jenkins, orchestral music, and different types of pop. The sound is incredibly clear...Very good performance for such a budget price.

[T]hese are what I use to watch Gotham while my wife and puppy doze quietly and adorably on the couch next to me. They're comfortable enough to wear while binge-watching a couple of episodes until 2am, and they're large enough that they fit over my large head.
