Zoro II Wireless headphones review

We review the Zoro II headphones from Noontec, which can connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth as well as the standard 3.5mm headphone jack for impressive flexibility.

The Zoro II Bluetooth headphones beat most rivals into the dirt when it comes to battery life, offering over 30 hours of wireless playback on a single charge of the 650mAh cell. For this review I’ve been using the Zoro II for just over a month, and in that time I’ve only needed to recharge it the once. Very impressive longevity indeed.

Even better, if you do happen to run out of charge, that doesn’t mean game over. Instead, you can just plug the Zoro II into your phone, tablet or any other device with a 3.5mm jack using the bundled cable. The cable is just over a metre long, so plenty for enjoying a movie or whatever on your mobile device. And so far it seems pretty tough too, making it unlikely to split or fracture any time soon.

Specs-wise, the Zoro II supports Bluetooth 4.0 with a frequency of 13-26,000Hz and a maximum power of 60Mw.

The design of the Zoro II headphones is likely to split opinion, with the in-your-face logos plastered over the cups and band. But they fold up neatly, making them easier to cart around when not in use, while the plentiful padding makes them comfortable to wear for an hour or so at a time. However, after an hour of use my ears usually begin to ache a little as the cups press directly onto your ears rather than enclosing them.

Don’t expect any kind of noise cancellation from the Zoro II headphones, and if you play your music loud, people stood next to you will be able to hear quite clearly. Just a heads-up in case you’re a secret Bieber lover. However, sound quality is perfectly fine, with plenty of aural detail clearly coming through in complex songs. For the price, these will definitely do the job for casual music enjoyment and watching video on the go.

You also get built-in mics to pick up your voice, in case you need to take a call while rocking the Zoro II.

You can grab the Zoro II headphones on Amazon right now.
