Wires – hate them!! I use headphones a lot, generally to isolate my environment and help me focus – but when I’ve finished they get thrown in my bag, semi-attached to a phone buddy (I still think they are ace but I don’t have a headphone socket anymore) and I end up with a tangled mess.
I’ve tried to use wireless headphones, but portability, ‘loseability’ and battery management tend to let me down in the end.
Enter then the KitSound District True Wireless Earbuds; a potential solution to my entanglement problems.
What are the KitSound District True Wireless Earbuds?
The KitSound Districts are discreet Bluetooth Earbuds, which fit comfortably in the ears, and come with their own charging case – that’s right, they charge in the protective case!
It’s this feature which first grabbed my attention as it instantly resolves my battery management issue.
The neat carry case supplied with the buds has an internal battery inside which can be charged via a mini USB port (cable also included) on the side of the case, and this is the clever bit, the buds snap satisfyingly into place via magnetic docking points. The magnetic connection is strong enough to keep the buds in place even when shaking the case.
There are LEDs in the case which show how much charge is left in the internal battery.
To activate the Earbuds simply remove them from the case and they switch on and automatically connect over bluetooth, it really couldn’t be much easier.
The Initial Setup
The initial setup is perhaps the most fiddly element of this device, fortunately there are some good instructions otherwise I would have struggled.
There are discrete buttons built into the earbuds, and a combination of long presses first pairs the buds together then puts them in bluetooth discovery mode, after which it’s business as usual.
The controls on the buds can also be used to interact with your main device, although in reality it’s much easier just to use your device.
The main function of the KitSound District True Wireless Earbuds is to play audio, so the most important quality is sound, and like most KitSound devices they do well.
There is a nice tone through the buds and sound is very clear, although they don’t have the same level of base as other KitSound devices I’ve tried, but it’s possible to alter the tone by moving the buds slightly around your ear, but clearly the smaller sized drivers make a difference.
The KitSound Districts sound good but just not as bassy as other larger KitSound headsets.
I normally have difficulty with earbuds as they fall out of my ears, but the shape of the KitSound District earbuds help lock them comfortably in place meaning that I don’t have to worry.
KitSound District True Wireless Earbuds In Summary
The KitSound District True Wireless Earbuds are comfortable, wireless, sound good and has magnetic charging features built into the case and at £69.99 they represent good value.
For me the KitSound District True Wireless Earbuds offers the perfect package for portable music – no more wire knots for me.
