I’m a DJ by design so my standards are high. The Dodocool DA158 is ideal as an entry-level wireless headphone for people who like to listen to music.
Firstly, the design is good and the headphones are foldable and compact- thus great for when you’re on the go. It also comes with a nice & sturdy carrying case, which might seem bulky at first, but fits perfectly for travelling needs. I primarily used these headphones while in airplanes & walking around Las Vegas, so there was no shortage of opportunity to test the noise cancelling feature and overall I’d give it an average rating.
Even though these headphones are wireless, the Dodocool DA158 has the capability of using a headphone jack which is included in the box, and that’s a big plus! The Dodocool DA158 easily pairs to any Bluetooth device and to top that, when it came to answering calls it was magical. I heard my callers clearly and vice versa, it has mics built in the headphones…. Genius!
As for the battery life, the company states that the headphones can “provide up to 14 hours of playtime with a full charge.” I’ve used it for at least 8 continuous hours without needing to plug in, and that’s a definite plus for me.
In relation to comfort, it’s acceptable, however, after a while it felt a bit uncomfortable, but truth be told if you’re wearing it for long periods- that is expected.
Overall, I would certainly recommend these headphones, especially at the price point that they come (~$80USD) and again the big plus factor, is the ability to use a headphone jack even though it’s wireless.
