Headphones are not hard to find these days and for cheap and cheerful ones certainly easier we tend to see in local shops or garages now but they are terrible especially headphones. This pair of headphone from RIWBOX is the latest they have on offer and are the XBT-90. There is several different types available these being their newest addition and come in at around €25.

They are a simple pair of headphones with a nice look to them with the usual aspects you would expect but these pack a bit more, These are bass heavy I find anyway and that is not a problem,there is no app of course but no need for one if you want a deeper tone to your music and listening experience.

They are made of plastic and light and come with a nice travel case included which is nice to have they do fold up and being plastic I would advise taking it easy with them in general as joints and links tend to break easier on such build headphones but they are solid enough.

The controls are simple to use,buttons are small but you will get use to finding them blindly after some use. Comfort is fine here too with nice padding on the cups but a rubber textured pad on the headband but caused me no problems with long term use. The controls offer the expected pause/play,skip and reverse tracks and call controls and work fine each time and no issues there and they are indicated on the headphones in black but this might fade away over time.

You do not have access to a voice assistant which is fine at this price range and no audio pass through but you get Bluetooth 5.0 which gives a stable connection and I had no issues here. The quality on the music itself was great overall considering the cost and was loud, There is good bass too and overall across all sound stages and genres of music I listen too was decent even on max level,there is sound leakage but not overly loud but something to consider sitting on a bus or train but this is at maxed out volume.

There was slight lag latency at times but nothing bad and pretty much what you might see from time to time on average around half a second whilst I watched You Tube and Netflix so overall for the price they are worth it, The thing I like best is the option to put a micro sd card in to carry your music around without a companion device but you are only able to use the features the same as you would on the phone but cant visibly see them., Check out the specs below and video for more.
