bluetooth-гарнитура AKG K 830 BT stereo: operating experience
After an exit of the fourth version of an insertion all users of iPhone and iPod eventually had a possibility of real use of bluetooth-earphones with the A2DP profile. Thanks to full support of buttons of management by playing similar accessories give unsurpassed convenience of listening of music on the way, without being confused in bored wires and always remaining on communication. At present I wish to tell you about operating experience of bluetooth-гарнитуры AKG K 830 BT new by a stereo with which I managed to get acquainted quite closely.
I will begin, perhaps, with packing. Earphones, usually for the company, extend in a charming cardboard box of the magnificent size. Naturally, after Monster Turbine and IE series Sennheiser not so enough that strikes, but quality all the same deserves a praise. The font in identical packing is not a shame for presenting and pleasantly even simply to take in hands. Perfectly that AKG keeps own corporate style in everything, beginning from the elements which are pleasantly "smelling" as quality. Inside there are no surpluses: earphones, charging wire and rag chekholchik. Practically, what is necessary for comfortable use?
Earphones unprofitable that means total absence of wires. The design is executed purely in black color. Only silvery inscriptions and designations are allocated. The label of AKG flaunts from both parties – probably, very much are proud. The strict stylistics will suit though to what music fan, whether it be the lady, the child or the business man. Naturally, similar universality of design can not be pleasant to those who longs to be allocated, but products of the company are quite often calculated on stabler audience. Other contingent can enjoy Scullcandy or Monster.
All elements of management are on the left earphone. These are two buttons of rewind forward and back, loudness buttons, плей / a pause and the main button answering including for the answer to a call. In the same place the microphone is hidden also. iPhone perfectly consults with all functions of a font. To use K 830 really very much with comfort. Attachment process to phone occupies time minimum that, in my opinion, even it is simpler, than to thrust the tip in a nest. After primary pairing, iPhone will remember the device and you need to turn on only earphones and to stamp in "Bluetooth settings" for their model. It is necessary to behold that AKG K 830 BT perfectly work not only with Apple equipment, well and with though what other devices meaning introduction of a font. Sony PlayStation 3 and Nokia 5800 to a meeting "marked" the new device and perfectly worked with it in a sheaf. Old insertions of iOS, to chagrin, "are not on friendly terms" with a profile of management of playing therefore "conservatives" from buttons should be released, enjoying only music.
About quality of playing in the relation блютуз to speak, in fact, stupidly. Each client should consider that it uses similar earphones for the sake of convenience, but in any way to take pleasure in Mozart. The sound absolutely corresponds to many similar models. It will satisfy the most part of users of iPod from among music fans. Quality of playing does not cause unpleasant emotions, but there is a small problem and "porridge". Hardly you will feel such nuances on the way, in view of surrounding noise, and for house use it is better to pick up a good stereosystem. Quality of a voice transfer does not cause any complaints: the interlocutor perfectly hears you, no less than you it.
The font with comfort "sits" on the head, does not press and does not fall down. Loudness suffices, on great values surpluses are felt. Here only the noise isolation a little strains. On the street earphones pass loud noise, in the subway because of it it is possible to feel a certain discomfort. Satisfactory level of loudness is close to bigger, in particular if to listen through a cap. Better isolation in ringing places can achieve at a sock directly on ears therefore even quite very narrow headdress in the subway is better for removing. If to you will bother to listen to music, earphones can be combined and cleaned simply in a bag where they will take a little places.
The separate praise is deserved by the module of a wireless communication. In house aspects I achieved comfortable sounding at distance more than 10 meters through a wall. On the street if phone lies in a bag behind the back, from time to time there are interruptions. It is heavy to tell, with what they are connected: either the temperature affects, or hindrances any. I it cannot refer to minuses, as with other models even such result heavy to achieve, and with AKG "jammings" happen from time to time.
The developer promises to eight business hours of a font without additional charge. This figure, naturally, is overestimated, but result very quite good. At moderate loading of listening of music on the way approximately on an hour, earphones worked about three days. I think if to "drive" them constantly, the result will vary around six-seven hours. A little surprised lack of a fork for the socket. It is necessary to charge from the computer through USB, or to use the adapter similar to complete for iPhone (time of a full charging 1.5 hours). Only do not forget that the switched-on module блютуз on phone badly affects time of its independent work.
In Moscow AKG K 830 BT cost about 6 thousand rubles. You receive very comfortable font from which it is heavy to be released for these means, once having tried. Similar decisions cost approximately four thousand, but to them is very far to the AKG company characteristic. It is possible to find a big range of introduction to a font, as for games on PlayStation 3 and discussions on Skype from the laptop (at Mac OS Skype together with AKG does not work), and for music listening on the way. It seems to me that purchase will be completely justified for all users of iPhone and people to whom constantly being confused wires already bothered.
To clamp the main button for 2 seconds – inclusion (the green indicator blinks) / switching off;
To clamp the main button for 4 seconds – the pairings mode (serially blink green and turn blue the indicator);
Quickly to press «Play/Pause» 2 times – a blocking/unblocking of buttons;
To clamp the main button to a sound signal – repetition of the last telephone number;
To clamp the main button – call dumping;
To press «Play/Pause» during telephone conversation – microphone switching off/inclusion.
Arthur’s outlook of ‘SeaBreeze’ Malosiyev
I did not get out of AKG K 830 BT two days running. These "ears", first, involve with the convenience. And that they are completely integrated with the iPhone does them still краше. I wish – I listen to music, I wish – I speak by phone, later again I listen to music. iPhone at all this lies somewhere in other room.
In iPod.app it is possible to appoint a sound source
I dreamed long ago of wireless earphones and I had to wait, while producers will not start to let out applicable results. AKG K 830 BT – that veshchichka which is necessary to me. But you should choose: or a thick heavy wire and a good sound, as at Grado SR80, or total absence of wires and an average sound.
It is necessary to consider that bluetooth-earphones NEVER will come nearer to quality wire because of modulation process at the coding decoding, suitable at a signal transmission from a radiator to the receiver. When I write articles, not so I ponder, what harmonica now sounds in an album Pink Floyd. Music serves in work to me as a background and a wall from postoroniy sounds therefore AKG K 830 BT for this purpose approach.
I liked design of earphones (AKG is included into the Harman group supervising Harman Kardon, JBL, Lexicon and Mark Levinson), ergonomic placement of buttons, compactness, convenience of carrying, ease of connection, soft амбушюры, moderate pressure upon ears, unlimited quantity of extents of rotation of monitors.
It was not pleasant to me that buttons of management are located on the left ear, instead of on the right – for right-handed persons. When earphones are connected to phone, but them plays nothing, «white noise» is audible weak. Strike keen edges at arch edges (see a photo below).
Update: Skype does not work together with earphones and a microphone. At all this, it concerns both Mac OS, and iOS 4.x. In technical support of Skype answered that iOS forbids work of postoroniy "dialing programs" with though what fonts.
In my stock of various accessories to Apple equipment AKG K 830 BT earphones now the beloved. They justify the mission for 100 %.
