If you’ve been shopping for a pair of wireless headphones with premium sound and good looks as chief priorities, you may have experienced a bit of sticker shock — the premium Bluetooth headphone tier is filled with options exceeding $250. The trouble is, many budget-friendly options tend to lack in the style department and don’t do much to instill confidence that they’ll sound much better than they look. Enter the Böhm B66 wireless headphones. These on-ears are crafted from aluminum, garnished with fine beveled edges, accented with plush leatherette material, sport smooth, clean lines, and sound far better than you’d expect for their under-$100 asking price. Oh, and let’s toss in some decent active noise-cancelling in there just to up the ante.
The Böhm B66 offer better sound quality than you might expect, with clearly rendered midrange and treble, and enough weighty bass to satisfy. Don’t expect to hear the lowest of the lows — these on-ears aren’t miracle workers — but there’s plenty of punch here, and the B66 stop short of overbearing bass. Music sounds rich, and watching movies is a treat thanks to low latency and clear dialog, even among the din of explosive sound effects. Certainly, a more refined sound signature can be had from pricier headphones, but we think owners will be pretty happy with the price-to-performance ratio.
