Kinivo BTH240 Review: An Outstanding & Affordable Bluetooth Stereo Headphone

Kinivo BTH240 Review Stimulated Boredom

If you’re looking for an affordable Bluetooth headset with decent sound quality and the convenience of hands-free operation, you would be hard pressed to find a better option than the Kinivo BTH240.

Product Features & Advantages

  • Affordable: Only $31.99 @ the time of writing (normally $49.99)
  • Compatible with Bluetooth enabled music players & A2DP enabled devices such as iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android Smart Phones, tablets, etc
  • Control your music player directly from the headset with functions such as play, pause, next & previous track, and volume
  • Serves as both a wireless music Headset and Bluetooth phone headset for hands free calling
  • Sleek, comfortable, lightweight design with up to 10 hours of music and talk time
  • New and improved design: Micro-USB charging port, increased battery time, and modified LED design

I also own the earlier Kinivo BTH220 and was so impressed by its performance, that I decided to upgrade to the BTH240.

Now, these headphones will not blow you away in terms of audio performance, and this was not the reason that I purchased and/or love them. Overall you get a relatively flat response that can be adjusted using an equalizer app, of which I have never found the need to use.

For audio that blows my face off, I still turn to my V-Moda Crossfades.

However, it terms of ease-of-use, battery life, range, convenience and compatibility, the Kinivo BTH240 is the headset that I use most often for basic everyday tasks around the house or office in which I don’t want to be tethered to a cord. Tasks like walking the dogs, doing the dishes and cleaning, mowing the lawn or simply watching movies on my tablet in bed without waking up my girlfriend. 🙂

The other thing that really impresses me about these headphones is the stellar battery life (I recharge them maybe every 2-3 weeks) and the ease in which they can be paired with multiple devices. I have never had any issues with switching between my phone or tablet, and having the headphones pair seamlessly to them.

Other Bluetooth devices that I own (like my Bose Soundlink Wireless Mobile speaker) can get confused when I am pairing them with other devices (i.e. switching between mine and my girlfriend’s phone, or a tablet) and usually require my having to go into the settings to re-connect them. However, the Kinivo BTH240 pair up every time, no matter what device I am connecting them to…and for a $30 device, this is impressive.

Bang For Your Buck

For only $30, I have zero problem with highly recommending these headphones to anyone who is looking for affordable Bluetooth headphones that perform perfectly every time.

As I mentioned, these are not the headphones that you want if you are an audiophile seeking perfect sound, heavy bass response or noise cancelling capabilities.

But, if you are looking for a hand’s free way to listen to music, podcasts, movies or to take a call while doing everyday tasks in the home or office, definitely pick up a pair! I use them everyday, and have been exceptionally pleased with my purchase.

Note: If over-the-ear is not your style, check out the Kinivo BTH360S
