First rate qualitypossibly a tiny over priced. Although i do use headphones, i have not made use of a bluetooth intercom/mic ahead of or a person that matches all over the back of your head as opposed to around the best. At the time i’d stopped pondering i was in a recording studio and seeking to crack out into song even though clutching the ear parts. It is not perfect but i found the audio good quality very good for audio and phone calls and it is really healthy comfy. Nonetheless, my daughter’s boyfriend tried out them and found them a lot less cozy and hard to modify. I assume they’re deal for any occupation/action where by you have to have to use hands cost-free or just utilizing as headphones. I identified them less obtrusive than some huge (but great) headphones i’ve made use of in the earlier. A adverse issue for me were the directions which i felt ought to and could have been easier.

Wonderful create top quality, and snug to use. . The quality of the seem of these is outstanding, and it is really paired to a setup that is each large good quality in terms of build, and relaxed to use for extended intervals of time. The microphone is good, and will come with a complete array of characteristics that tremendously increase the precision of the sound it picks up. It is bluetooth enabled, which is immensely practical, making it possible for the rig to be applied with cell phones for phone calls and even playback of new music. The variety on this isn’t excellent, but it truly is not significantly off what i have noticed with other bluetooth headsets. Really, it’s form of a specialised piece of kit if all you are looking for is a good established of headphones with a microphone attached, but it truly is difficult to obtain as well a great deal fault with what you get.

Sena Expand-02 Long-Range Bluetooth Intercom/ Stereo Headset, Black

  • Intercom working distance up to 900 meters (980 yards) in open terrain. Conference intercom up to 4 users.
  • Built-in SBC Codec (Advanced Noise Control(TM) , Wind noise reduction , Wide volume control , Sample rate: 48 kHz (DAC))
  • Talk time: 10 hours , Stand-by time: 7 days

  • Even if your companions don’t use Sena gear, Expand uses the Universal Intercom(TM) protocol, which makes your gear compatible with their gear, such as the generic in-ear hands-free kit

If you are the sporting or rugged kind and like to retain ‘tuned in’, this is the headset for you. It is a excellent create and very snug to wear for prolonged periods. The microphone is neat and does not get in the way. This has bluetooth and can be employed for palms free of charge calling, actively playing music and features a form of ‘noise cancelling’ in that the unit routinely adjusts the quantity according to the exterior sound stage. I cannot say that i discovered this in operation. That claimed, i made use of it in the countryside so did not have substantially exterior sound. It may well be additional productive in an city placing. I utilised it in average rain and all appeared fantastic but it should not be assumed to be watertight.

The seem quality is superb both with cellphone calls and specifically listening to new music. I am impressed with this bluetooth headset in general, but it has a couple of niggles in my view. The sound high quality is fantastic both equally with mobile phone calls and particularly listening to tunes. There is a good deal of definition all way by bass, mid-selection and treble. I locate the bass quite satisfying when listening to music and for me, its all the additional extraordinary taking into consideration its in excess of bluetooth. The range is also exceptional, i booted up google participate in songs on my generic chinese android tablet, linked the headset with it no trouble, working with the telephone pairing alternative and then walked to the other facet of the residence. The headset still picked up the audio on the pill no trouble, through a few of thick brick walls. I haven’t been ready to do that with a bluetooth headset prior to so that is fantastic. It is significantly superior for use in the yard as i can go away my mobile phone or tablet someplace secure while i am digging or what ever and i am not tied up by a cable. The menu technique is extremely simple, just a sequence of urgent the keys on the still left of the headset.

Beneficial if you require a four way conference intercom function, but unpleasant to don for lengthy periods even even though inactive. The expand-02 is a bluetooth headset with a variance – staying that it can be employed as a multi-consumer intercom process. Up to four pairs can be joined for conferencing, apparently with a 900m vary. I are unable to remark on that considering that i only experienced a person pair to examination, but the function is also suitable with other bluetooth headsets so long as they aid hfp (fingers-totally free profile). The headset rests on your ears, with the connecting band passing around the back of your neck. This suggests you can use it even though putting on head defense (not a crash helmet), nevertheless the earpieces are a tiny major. I failed to recognize this at 1st but right after 15 minutes or so the major of my ear began to truly feel sore. As someone who wears spectacles, the pounds also pressed down on the arms uncomfortably. The microphone is sturdy but set in area i identified that it pressed pretty tightly to my cheek. Apparently, a person of the pictures on the box demonstrates a dude with a beard sporting the headset.

Sena Expand-02 Long-Range Bluetooth Intercom/ Stereo Headset, Black : This is the second version of sena’s expand headset. The first had a range (between expand headsets) of up to 300m. This model has trebled that to 900m – almost a kilometre.This leaves bluetooth’s usual range of 10m looking totally pathetic. The headset has been specifically designed to allow communication between wearers during outdoor activities. For this purpose it features such things as a microphone windscreen, background noise control, conference intercom between up to four headsets and music sharing. It also has excellent secureness when being worn and it’s water resistant. It doesn’t claim to be “waterproof”, but i think in rain it’ll be fine – something that’s highly important in the uk. The headset isn’t limited to intercom duties though.

The sound quality is very good through all facets and the range is equally good. Generally impressed with this bluetooth headset with a couple of very minor gripes. The sound quality is very good through all facets and the range is equally good. There is plenty of definition all way through bass, mid-range and treble. I find the bass very pleasing when listening to music and for me, its all the more impressive considering its over bluetooth. The range is also excellent, picking up from tablet and laptop alike whilst outside in the garden. Setting up is logical, pairing being very simple. It isn’t the most comfortable set – perhaps being used to in-ear phones prejudices me, and it can feel a little flimsy. But in all a good set of phones.

Decent qualitypossibly a little over priced. Although i do use headphones, i’ve not used a bluetooth intercom/mic before or one that fits around the back of your head as opposed to over the top. Once i’d stopped thinking i was in a recording studio and wanting to break out into song whilst clutching the ear pieces. It’s not perfect but i found the sound quality good for music and calls and it’s fit comfortable. However, my daughter’s boyfriend tried them and found them less comfortable and hard to adjust. I think they’re deal for any job/activity where you need to use hands free or just using as headphones. I found them less obtrusive than some large (but good) headphones i’ve used in the past. A negative point for me were the instructions which i felt should and could have been simpler.

This is a little tricky to set up because you do it using a series of beeps, but i did manage to pair it with my devices. When i then initially tried to play music from my phone it didn’t connect to the headset. But i turned both of them off and back on and then it worked. The sound quality is ok and the headset feels well made, although i am a little worried about sound leaking out for other people to hear in a way that earbuds wouldn’t. I haven’t tried all the functions yet but it does seem pretty good. However it doesn’t fit well on my head. I have long hair and the headband bunches up my hair and then slides around, so it doesn’t feel secure. It would feel better if you could shorten it, but you can’t. I think this was basically designed for men’s heads, and they haven’t thought through the implications for long hair.

The headset is lightweight and well made. It did take me a few attempts to set it up with my iphone. Once it was paired it worked perfectly. The hands free for call is great, music sound clear and the mic does not get in the way. I could happily wander round the house and garden with out my phone and still pick up calls. Im not the biggest person and found that i just could not get a comfortable fit. I also found that my glasses would start to rub after about half an hour.

I spend a lot of time on skype with a wired headset and spend a good deal of that time with them tangling, strangling or dangling as i get up and walk off with them still attached – so anything without wires seemed like a good idea. Straight out of the box and onto the head and you’ll notice that the headband is not adjustable and these things come nowhere near your ears. But the headband does not go over the top of the head like old fashioned headphones, its designed to go around the back of your head with the mic on the left. They’re a nice snug fit and quite comfy. I didn’t suffer from ‘hot ear syndrome’ even after a day’s wear (yes i really do put myself through it for these reviews) though i note some others thought they were not comfy. Guess that depends on the size and shape of yer noggin. The mic is in fixed as well which may cause some people issues. Using this device is very easy. Switching on you’re greeted with a naturally sounding “hello”.

The sena expand headset had a lot of promise but it didn’t live up to it. The headset itself is fairly robust, although for a £100+ i would have expected improved padding in the ears and maybe a bit more comfort. The headset is the type which hooks over the top of your ears which suits wearing with a helmet but i found wasn’t practical when wearing glasses. Setup of bluetooth devices is normally straightforward. With the expand it was a bit of a pain. Press a couple of buttons to turn on then then hold the main button until you “configuration menu is announced (the quick instructions don’t say this, just 12 seconds) and then press + 4 times. This is probably due to the number of pair options (eg when using as an intercom) but it is a bit long winded, and if you make a mistake (you will) you have to start again by turning off and on. Sound: i had a slight issue here in that it only played in 1 ear. This could be because it’s initially setup for bike use (ie to hear traffic but i couldn’t work out how to change it despite reading the 50 page manual.

If you are the sporting or rugged type and like to keep ‘tuned in’, this is the headset for you. It is a quality build and very comfortable to wear for extended periods. The microphone is neat and does not get in the way. This has bluetooth and can be used for hands free calling, playing music and features a sort of ‘noise cancelling’ in that the unit automatically adjusts the volume according to the exterior noise level. I can’t say that i noticed this in operation. That said, i used it in the countryside so did not have much exterior sound. It may be more effective in an urban setting. I used it in moderate rain and all seemed fine but it shouldn’t be assumed to be waterproof.

A bit too lightweight in functionality and quality – for the price. Product: sena expand-02 long-range bluetooth intercom/ stereo headsetas someone who uses a set of traditionally-styled bluetooth headphones every day i was intrigued to see how this neckband headset, with microphone would fare. What’s to like?——————-very lightweight. Music sound quality acceptable but not brilliant; these appear to be tailored towards phone and communications. Received phone quality was good. But it meant i couldn’t use these to listen to music on my phone at work and be ready to take that vital call too. Microphone quality and sensitivity are ok but not brilliant; my wife complained that it sounded a bit distant and indistinct (compare to a wired headset) and that it cut off the last bit of my sentence. I left myself a voicemail and it sounded like i was in a cave. Excellent battery life – a full 8 hours and still goingwhat’s not to like?————————–microphone is not detachable or foldable – couldn’t pack this into my ‘man bag’ as i was worried it would get snapped off. Neckband not adjustable; i have a mutant-sized head so a bit of leeway here would have been appreciated.

High quality and good performance. In the box you get the headphones, 2 microphone wind covers, a spare set of foam ear-pads, a charging cable, quick start guide and a manual. The charging cable is a micro-usb type, note, however not all micro-usb cables will fit into the aperture in the headphones. The headphones are very high quality, light-weight and well-made; the microphone boom is strengthened with metal, buttons are easy to operate and the microphone wind-cover fits with a positive click. Switching on the headphones is greeted by a spoken “hello”, continuing to hold the “+” and centre button gives a spoken battery level; most functions have a spoken prompt. After a slightly tedious registration process i downloaded the sena software which connected to the headphones and allowed me to check the software version, which was current, and change things like the voice prompts to another language and put in the 3 speed-dial numbers. The box claims a range of 900 metres for the headphones in intercom mode; bluetooth devices generally have a range of 10m or 100m, these headphones are 100m and the range of 900m is achieved with a 4-way intercom conversation in open terrain. The headphones can be paired with various devices including 2 mobile phones simultaneously, media devices and intercom interfaces. Connection to a smartphone is easy, each step being announced by a voice prompt. Once connected it is possible to answer calls, play music, program the speed-dial numbers and dial out.

Comfortable, multi use phones. I admit i have not used this for “intercom” purposes as i don’t liaise with anyone else who has this kind of headset – so my review is from the point of view of using the headphones as a bluetooth headphone set to listen to music and the radio and also to answer phone calls. The headset is very easy to set up – just charge up using a usb cable and make sure your phone is set to allow bluetooth communication with the device and off you go. The haedband fits around the base of the skull and is adjustable – it feels comfortable and did not slip off my head – something that has happened a lot when i am active buy using traditional “ear can” style headphones. The headpones were great for me – i love to listen to music whilst doing housework but found the wire from my headphones into my phone was easily dislodged while cleaning and that my phone was also often at risk of damage in my pocket – with these phones i can set my playlist going on my phone in a room and then listen all around the house and in my garden on this headset with no annoying wires. The sound is pretty good, it is a bit light on the base and some tracks have sounded ever so slightly tinny compared to some similar priced traditional headphones that i use. However, this is far outweighed by the advantages of wireless bluetooth mobility. I work from home and it is great to be able to answer calls immediately with the microphone wherever i happen to be at home.

Useful if you need a 4 way conference intercom function, but uncomfortable to wear for long periods even while inactive. The expand-02 is a bluetooth headset with a difference – being that it can be used as a multi-user intercom system. Up to four pairs can be joined for conferencing, apparently with a 900m range. I can’t comment on that since i only had one pair to test, but the function is also compatible with other bluetooth headsets so long as they support hfp (hands-free profile). The headset rests on your ears, with the connecting band passing around the back of your neck. This means you can use it while wearing head protection (not a crash helmet), however the earpieces are a little heavy. I didn’t notice this at first but after 15 minutes or so the top of my ear started to feel sore. As someone who wears spectacles, the weight also pressed down on the arms uncomfortably. The microphone is sturdy but fixed in place; i found that it pressed quite tightly to my cheek. Interestingly, one of the pictures on the box shows a guy with a beard wearing the headset.

Nice but slightly awkward with glasses. A light set of rechargeable bluetooth headphones. Fairly comfortable to wear but the style of headband (looped behind the head) does mean that they make my glasses move slightly with certain head movements. They paired with ease to my nokia phone, although the instructions aren’t exact. When you press the appropriate buttons on the headset to force the pair it does say you’ll get a message about pairing with the phone. Indeed you do, but you also get a message or two before that. I kept abandoning the process, believing i’d done something wrong. The sound quality is good, but a little ‘tinny’. The base certainly isn’t as good as my normal headphones, but a lot better than others i’ve used. Unfortunately the graphic equalizer on my phone doesn’t recognise this as a compatible device for setting the levels, so it has to stay as is.

Six stars possibly seven i’m in love . These are just frikkin unbelievable . Imagine a headset that work over half a mile away from it’s source, imagine a headset that can have links up to 4 other headsets, now consider a 10 hour playback, phone compatability, simple controls, mp3 playing capability. . Now imagine the quality of playback makes dr beats headphones seem like a tin can and string affair. I’m sitting here listening to music while writing this and to be honest i’d buy these just for their headphone replay quality. These are one of the best headsets i’ve ever listened to music though, easily comparible to b&w and dr. Beats it’s close to some of the low end grado headsets and they are 3 times the price. Somehow 5 stars seems to be doing these a disservice. I was sceptical as heck when i opened the box but wow. Just for my phone these are epic .
Six stars possibly seven i’m in love . These are just frikkin unbelievable . Imagine a headset that work over half a mile away from it’s source, imagine a headset that can have links up to 4 other headsets, now consider a 10 hour playback, phone compatability, simple controls, mp3 playing capability. .

I paired it with my phone super fast and was listening to music walking round the house that was being played on my phone. Then i had a phone call, i answered it using my headphones then ended the call, all without going near my phone. Who knew this technology existed. I can do housework in super speed without being tethered or annoying anyone (unless i start singing of course). I can talk to my mum without worrying about my mobile phone frying my brain.

Tough and well designed communications headset. The sena expand-02 long-range bluetooth intercom/ stereo headset is a multi-purpose headset that has three primary uses. The main use is as a a long range intercom – this review item is a single headset so i have been unable to fully test this function yet but as soon as i purchase an additional headset i will add to this review. When connected to a smartphone the headset works as a hands-free phone device and for this purpose it is ideal – it will also play music and podcasts. Finally if connected to an mp3 music player, ipad or other tablet the headset functions as stereo headphones. For music playing i found the audio quality quite harsh at first and the headset benefited from a burn-in period – after that it improved quite a bit but the bass is fairly light and although the audio is good it is not up to the quality of dedicated music headphones. The headset is extremely comfortable to wear and is a very clever design that fits well – just remember that the microphone goes to the left-hand side of your face. When pairing bluetooth the headset will try to pair with a communication device at first so you need to scroll through the menu if trying to pair a phone or audio player. The menu is not intuitive to use at first so you will probably need to refer to the quick start guide a couple of times. The sena expand-02 is a very well made product that is ideal for it’s purpose as a headset to use in the great outdoors.
