Wireless headphones are nothing new, but these are the first we've seen that use Bluetooth to transmit data.

Setup is simple. Plug the audio adapter (about the size of a USB memory key) into the headphone socket, switch it on and let it search for the headphones; in no time you'll be listening to your tunes.

The headphones feature a volume rocker, so you don't need to be near the source to adjust the audio level.

Sound quality was impressive, although we did suffer occasional interference – this could be due to the large amount of wireless traffic in the PC Advisor offices. The audio was restored quickly when this occurred.

To save power, the audio adapter will shut itself down if it doesn't get a response from the headphones after a period of time.

OUR VERDICT

While not overly large compared with professional headphones, the CB2530 is certainly larger than most domestic sets. It's comfortable and easy to operate, and sound quality is good – it's just a shame that the interference we encountered interrupted the listening experience.
