The NoonTec Zoro II are premium looking wireless headphones that NoonTec claims will last up to 35 hours on a single charge. The outer band of the Zoro II are attractively covered in a glossy piano-black finish, and the inner band is a rich red color with aluminum accents that wrap around the band.
These are on-ear headphones, and they are comfortable to wear and fairly lightweight. They can be folded up and placed into an included felt carrying pouch for travel. Also included is a 3.5 mm audio cable, for those times you want (or need) to plug in, and a micro-USB charging cable.
The controls and battery indicator are behind the earpieces. Operation, from pairing the Zoro II with your phone to changing tracks, is pretty straightforward. The Zoro II will also remember up to eight devices, and they instantly pair with up to two devices when powered on.
Sound quality is remarkably good for the price. The Zoro II sound especially clear in the treble and midrange registers. Bass is adequate, but not quite on par with higher-end wireless headphones — these babies won’t bump like similarly styled Beats cans.
The coolest part about the Zoro II is the impressively long battery life. We were able to use them on and off for days without the need for recharging, and we have no reason to doubt their claimed 35-hour battery life. The long runtime and the ability to fold into a tight package make the Zoro II an excellent choice for travelers.
The Noontec Zoro II can be picked up for just under $120, less than a third of the price of wireless headphones from bigger names like Bose, Beats, and others. The premium design and clear sound make these headphones a pleasant surprise for the price, and we recommend giving them a shot.
