Onkyo W800BT are the True Wireless in-ear headphones with absolutely no cables, the left and right earpieces work independently and connect wirelessly to each other and to the smart device for a completely wireless experience.
Traditional wireless earphones allow you to stream audio over Bluetooth but the left and right pieces are connected by a cord usually with integrated controls and a mic for hands-free calls. Proper wireless in-ears like the W800BTs cut the cord altogether, so all the tech is placed inside the earpieces. This is a genuine breakthrough innovation that allows you to immerse yourself in audio freely and naturally.
Using Bluetooth streaming technology this way is a revolution in portable music technology and offers quality sound without a single cable between the earpieces or the device to create a genuine feeling of freedom and flexibility. The earphones also connects to your wireless device so you can listen to all your favourite music.
Onkyo’s signature clean, clear and precise sound is created by 8.6mm high power drivers that deliver rich bass, balanced mid-range and crystal clear treble frequencies for an authentic musical experience across a frequency range of 6Hz – 22kHz. A closed acoustic architecture seals out sound creating a clear and accurate audio experience without external interruptions.
Comfort on the go
The shape and the stabiliser design of the W800BT have been carefully considered according to ear geometry to ensure a secure, comfortable fit. The right earphone also includes a microphone for hands-free calling and can be used with any Bluetooth-enabled device. The accompanying charging case can also charge the W800BT a total of 5 times through its internal battery. Pressing and holding the sides of both earpieces powers them up and kicks off the pairing process.
Three different sizes of silicone ear tip are provided. Each earpiece has a stabiliser arm that helps secure the headphones in your ear and there is a microphone built in under the right earpiece so you can answer calls.
Like most headphones, the W800BTs come with their own case. But this is a clever case. Not only does it provide a secure home for the headphones, it also doubles as a charging station which is handy as the Onkyos have a three-hour battery life.
The case features a built-in battery with enough reserves to charge the headphones five times – indicated by a row of five LED lights on the front of the case. This offers an additional 15 hours of music/talk time or an additional 200 hours of standby time.
'The Onkyos favour a clear and open sound, allowing music to breathe and more detail to filter through. It’s a clean soundstage that sounds uncluttered. The headphones are easy-going and happy playing a wide variety of musical genres.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'The Onkyos paint a leaner picture than the best in-ears, only scraping the surface of bass notes that you know should sound fuller. But there’s a decent level of musicality – high notes and vocals sound sweet but not too sickly.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'…As the vocal arrives centre stage, there’s no brightness or harshness to speak of. This is a big positive and makes the Onkyos easy to listen to in both short bursts or over longer listening sessions.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
'The Onkyo W800BTs are in a unique position, with only a handful of rivals that offer the same level of convenience. Contrast this with the Bluetooth headphone market where there are many models all offering the same thing.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
