Phaiser BHS-750 Review
Phaiser is a relatively new headphone company. Despite that, they have already succeeded in creating a multiple of highly rated headphones. And the best part, they are all extremely well priced and won’t make you go bankrupt. One of such is the Phaiser BHS-750 wireless earbuds. They are specifically designed for athletes and anyone else that enjoys listening to music while working out. Which should be the strong point of them as Phaiser is known for their excellent audio quality and bass heavy headphones. Plus they have promised some extra features that make the headphones more comfortable to wear. But more about that in my review below!

The Phaiser BHS-750 earbuds are designed for working out so it makes sense that they have a pretty sporty design. I’d say that they remind me of the Jaybird X2’s quite a bit. Which is great as it’s a design that’s proven to work. Just like most sporty headphones, the BHS-750’s also come with ear fins/wings that help to keep the earbuds attached to your ear. So you don’t need to worry about the coming out while exercising.
What I like the most about them is that the wings are made out of this soft flexible material. So they don’t get uncomfortable or put a strain on your ear. The headphones also come with 3 different size pairs that you can switch. It’s important to find the right size for you as they only work if they fit your ears. Just like you would do with any other earbud. Oh and of course you also get different size ear tips as well.
My only concern is with the cable as it’s a standard round one and not flat. I’m personally a huge fan of flat cables as they tend to last longer. However, so far I haven’t had any problems with it and it feels thicker than most other headphone cables. There is also a remote attached to it from where you can change songs, pick up calls and change volume. It’s pretty well placed and comfortable to use.
What surprised me the most about these earbuds is the magnetic “lock” that Phaiser has included. There are small magnets behind the actual earbuds. Which means that they clasp together if you are just wearing them around your neck. This way you don’t need to worry about losing them when they aren’t in your ear. It’s a pretty unique feature and I’m surprised that other companies haven’t thought about this.
Overall the Phaiser BHS-750 are really well built. They don’t feel at all cheap and they fit really nicely. It can take some time to find the right size ear tips and fins but once you do, the earbuds are really snug. The earbuds have also got an IPX6 waterproof rating, which basically means that you can spray water on it. As in it’s fine to use under the shower but not in a pool. Oh and you can also choose between different colors: black, purple, lime, blue and red. But that’s just the color of the cable so yeah. It doesn’t change the overall look that much.
Phaiser has also been quite generous with the accessories. I have never seen so many extras being included with headphones before. Of course you get the standard different sized ear tips and ear wings. But you also get three additional pairs of ear wings that have a different shape from the others. And they even throw in a unique pair of ear tips that are made from memory foam! This is pretty new for me and they are definitely interesting. They basically take the shape of your inner ear and that’s why they are more comfortable and isolate noise better.
In addition, you also get a carry case, different clips and a MicroUSB to USB charging cable. The collar clips are great for keeping the cable from jumping around. It’s especially useful when you the earbuds to call someone it will keep the microphone stable.
The Phaiser BHS-750 is a completely wireless headphone, which means that you can’t connect them to your phone via a 3.5mm audio jack. Which isn’t exactly a bad thing as most phone companies have started removing them as well. Plus the wireless technology has evolved quite a bit over the past years and Bluetooth headphones are much better now.
And just like with any other Bluetooth device, you first need to pair it with your audio player. It doesn’t matter if it’s a phone, a tablet or a laptop. As long as it has Bluetooth and a user interface, you can connect to it. After turning on the Bluetooth, you need to power the earbuds next. For that, you hold down the play button on the controller. This will bring up “Phaiser” on the list of Bluetooth devices. You simply select it and that’s it, the earbuds are paired to your device and you can start playing music.
Like most wireless earbuds, you can expect to get around 10 m / 33 ft of range. This is on average and it can be much shorter depending on if there’s any walls in between etc. I haven’t had any problems moving around an open gym while having my phone stationary on a bench. So it does give you more freedom in terms of movement. It’s especially great when deadlifting as you don’t have any cables getting in the way.
The only downside of using Bluetooth is that it uses battery to power the system. And not just the battery on your phone, the earbuds have also got their own built-in battery that you need to charge with the MicroUSB to USB cable. How often depends on how much you use them. One full charge gets you around 6 hours of continuous music. Which isn’t exactly the best but then again these earbuds are incredibly small so they couldn’t fit a bigger battery. I’d say that the average person will have to charge them once a week. But again you can calculate how much you would have to based on the length of your workouts.
Another good feature is that it comes with the LifeState technology, which displays the earbuds battery life directly on your phone. So you have a clear view of when you need to charge them.
Always make sure that the earbuds fit you right before you start listening to music. You can have the best headphones in the world but if they don’t fit you well, then they just won’t sound near as good. But you most probably already know that if you have worn earbuds before.
Now the Phaiser BHS-750’s don’t have the biggest speakers (8 mm), which isn’t surprising considering how small the headphone is. Despite that, Phaiser has managed to bring the absolute most out of these speakers. They can get incredibly loud and powerful. Which is great as you don’t need to abuse the speakers when listening to music at a normal volume. Another thing that really impressed me was the bass. These earbuds produce this clear deep bass that you hear on much more expensive higher end models. It makes the sounds more smooth. And the best part, this smooth sound stays even when you turn up the volume.
So overall I’d say that you can use these earbuds to listen to every type of music. Sure bass heavy tunes sound even better but what I like the most about the Phaiser BHS-750’s is that the bass doesn’t overpower. Sure it’s there but it kind of smooths out the audio. Which is one of the reasons why they also manage to put out clear treble.
The problem with Bluetooth headphones is that there aren’t that many great mid range earbuds that you can choose from. Most of the market is focused on either the higher end headphones or the super cheap budget models. For me, the Phaiser BHS-750 are the perfect mid range wireless earbuds for athletes. They are cheaper than Jaybirds but not worse in terms of overall quality or audio. The main difference is in the battery life. So it comes down to your budget and if you think it’s worth spending more for some extra juice.
