I wish I had the good fortune to be interviewed and asked to review a product like FiiO. I’ve been on the other side of the fence about wireless earbuds, but if the good and honest FiiO team gets their act together and make good on their promises, I’ll surely be testing out the Sennheiser R90.
One of my personal favorites is the Philips Fidelio Wireless earphones. The one I will discuss here, if you’ve never played around with headphones, is for the bass, treble and volume. While the Fidelio and the Sennheiser sound are amazing, if you’re concerned about battery life, the Philips Fidelio is a better choice. If you just use the Fidelio instead of listening to music, the sound will go out of your head. You’ll likely do the same thing to the Sennheiser R90.
So, if I had to recommend one of the best wireless earbuds, which one would it be? My answer is: FiiO’s Fidelio Wireless is probably the best. It has solid build quality and the best audio performance. I can see myself picking one up, but I’m probably not going to buy one just to listen to music … if I have my pick in the first place. If you can’t wait any longer to buy one, I could recommend the Sennheiser R90. If you don’t like the high price of the FiiO Fidelio, I wouldn’t recommend this earphone. It has more features and better sound output, but if you only wanted to listen to music, I think the Sennheiser R90 would be perfect.
A word of warning though, there are more than a couple models out there that are great wireless earbuds that are missing a couple features. For example, the FiiO Fidelio is missing the on-board mic for remote control. If you are looking for a wireless earbud that’s all you’ll ever need, the Philips Fidelio is better, and you can also get the FiiO R90 with a remote to do so. I think that this is one topic where I’m sure there are different opinions … and really you should get in touch with the manufacturer to find out the differences.
