Optoma Nuforce BE6i - Trendy TransmissionWireless earphones are commonplace now; so much so, it's not necessary to draw undue attention to the fact these days. However, it's nice to see differing styles coming along and the Optoma Nuforce BE6i is a smart addition to this earphone category.
- Nice case included
- Many eartips and fitting accessories
- Well tuned for many genres
- Good build
- Charging port is a bit fiddly
Design and appearanceFirst impressions last, and in this case, the impression is definitely of a well-heeled smartness; these are the sort of earphones you can listen to during a job interview. The backs of the capsules are magnetic, so the earphones can be worn securely around the neck between uses. The design lends itself to the 'down from the ear' wearing style so anyone wanting to have the cable going up, over the ear will need to consider an alternative model. The case is a very practical, semi-rigid affair which is perfect for use with the BE6i.
Durability & build qualityCable and control/battery construction is good with no obvious weak points. The capsules feel quite solid as well, without being too heavy.
ComfortThere's not much to say here; once in, the earphones can more or less be forgotten about provided you have a good fit with the supplied eartips and accessories. There's plenty to play around with, including some 'fins' which sit in one of the various folds of the ear and help keep the earphones in place.
Sound characteristics:The Optoma Nuforce BE6i has a warm sound with a bit of non-intrusive treble presence, good as an all-rounder.
