The Rhythmz Blu HD looks familiar, isn’t it? But it’s not a cheap mock-up or an imitation, but rather an alternative to expensive headphones plus the wireless function.
Out of the box, you’ll be getting a 3.5mm flat cable, a micro-USB cable, a carrying case and a cleaning cloth along with the headphone. The carrying case itself is nicely textured and can fit the headphone when folded. Also, you could tuck in the cleaning cloth and the other cables with you, which is handy.
The Blu HD itself is glossy and is made with polycarbonate. It attracts fingerprint and grease easily, so keep the cleaning cloth with you. The inner part is matte and it gives better grip than the outer plastic. When wearing, the headphone fits nicely and also comfortable thanks to its soft ear pad. Long hours of playback shouldn’t be much of a problem because the ear pads tilt to fit your ears well. And lastly, the headphone can be extended to your desire and can be folded when not in use.
Setting up the Blu HD is easy and it works with pretty much any Bluetooth devices. Operating it is also a breeze thanks to the gesture control feature it has. Just make a swipe on the right part of the headphone. Swipe to the left/right and up/down to control the track and the volume respectively. The power button on the right side also acts as an answer key for incoming calls, and thanks to the built-in microphone, you can make the call while using the headphone. If you don’t feel the need to use Bluetooth or the battery is low, you could always use the included 3.5mm cable for wired connection.
Sound quality with the Blu HD is promising, and casual users will be able to enjoy music for long hours rated up to 10 hours. Bass is average, but it is good. Volume can get really loud too.
What bothers us about the Blu HD, is the blinking power button when in use. It produces a blue flashing light when playing, indication that the headphone is functioning but it could gather some attention when in public.
