Hands on: BlueVIBE DLX Bluetooth headphones

Read our full GoGroove BlueVIBE DLX review.

With all of the technology we carry around these days, cords just feel so 20th century. But until recently, most of the wireless headphones floating around offered more hype than performance, plagued by a combination of streaming hiccups, poor sound, and bewildering premium pricing. Fortunately, the tide seems to have turned, as we’re starting to see more and more companies break the wired ceiling, including smaller outfits like GoGroove.

You may not be familiar with GoGroove (we weren’t) but the company’s latest wireless cans, the BlueVIBE DLX, offer two features we didn’t expect: solid wireless performance, and a seriously affordable $80 price tag. We spent some quality time with the headphones to see if they are a wireless headset worth keeping around.

GoGroove’s BlueVIBE DLX are far from being a fantastic sounding pair of cans, but they do provide flawless wireless streaming in a tight, comfy little design. They don’t hold up well in a crowd, and more discerning listeners will find the performance short of the mark, but if all you need are a reasonable-sounding pair of wireless headphones with just a touch of style, you could do a whole lot worse. Stay tuned for our full written review, coming soon.
