Kinivo Headphones RIP

01bluetoothheadphoneswidget-420x280

My Kinivo BTH240 headphones have been a workhorse. I bought them when my wired headphones died my first week of work at my current job, and have used them pretty much all day every day since then. After 2.5 years, they have about had it. First the left ear started going out intermittently. Now, they shut themselves off randomly. It could be every hour or sometimes after 30 seconds. I just can’t hang with them.

I am moving up a tier in headphones (these ones were < $25) and going with the ones recommended by The Wirecutter, the Jabra Move wireless. I went with blue, because I don’t care what color they are and those were the cheapest.

The only bummer is that I completed my order about 25 minutes too late on Tuesday night so I won’t get them until tomorrow. As it happens, today is the day the Kinivos just became unusable. I’m hoping the fully over the ear cup of the Jabra headphones will help to serve as a noise suppressor when I travel or am in coffee shop type situations. Here’s hoping for the best. I’m counting on you, Wirecutter!
