Best Bluetooth Headphone Earmuffs 2020 Latest Review.
All Bluetooth Headphone Earmuffs in this review are complete headsets and have a built-in microphone, allowing you to answer phone calls without taking off your hearing protector
Bluetooth Hearing Protection Headphones are a set of protective earmuffs that make use of Bluetooth innovation for sound streaming from any Bluetooth linked gadget.
One can stream audio to their Bluetooth headphones from your iPod, iPhone, iPad, tablet, Android phone or roughly any other gadget available at the moment.
You can listen in to any digital media counting web-based radio such as Spotify, Pandora, etc.), MP3’s, iTunes, audiobooks, and podcasts.
3M Worktunes Connect + AM/FM
The Worktunes Connect + AM/FM are my favorite Bluetooth work earmuffs. They are the best sounding Bluetooth earmuffs I have found so far and they offer a great all-around package.
They have a good bass, full-bodied vocals, and transparent highs, without sounding harsh.
These muffs are a lot of fun listening to whether via Bluetooth, radio, or a wired audio source.
All hearing protection headphones limit the maximum permissible volume, but the Worktunes Connect + AM/FM have the best safe volume control:
They employ a noise dosimeter that attempts to limit the average sound level over the course of a work day but allows you to listen at a louder volume for periods of time.
The advantage: it doesn’t negatively affect the sound quality as some other volume limiters do.
- Great sound quality for music, audio books, podcasts, and radio.
- Volume-control method (via a dosimeter) allows for a good volume and doesn’t impair sound quality.
- The most adjustable Bluetooth earmuffs: These should fit even very large heads.
Howard Leight Sync Stereo MP3 Earmuff with External Bluetooth Adapter
The Howard Leight Sync Stereo were my first eamuffs with built-in headphones.
By default, the Sync Stereo are wired and not Bluetooth earmuffs.
But they work very well with an external Bluetooth receiver (has to be purchased separately).
These muffs are very light, and usually cheaper than all other options.
The Sync Stereo in combination with the Mpow BH203 Bluetooth receiver get louder than all other muffs reviewed here.
The Sync Stereo’s volume limiter seems to rely solely on the output of your device not exceeding a certain volume, so you have to exercise caution and be sensible!
Howard Leight is a subsidiary of Honeywell, and while these share some similarities with the Honeywell Sync Wireless, IMO, these offer more bass.
- They are very light.
- Usually the most economical choice.
- Comfortable for people with smaller heads (ear cups offer enough space for most ears).
- Louder than other earmuffs.
- The least headband adjustability of all muffs: If you have a larger head, these will likely not fit.
- Sound is a bit on the bright side.
- A bit more hassle: you have the complexity of the
CONNEX Bluetooth Hearing Protector Earmuffs by TASCO
As hearing protection earmuffs, the TASCO Connex Bluetooth are very solid. They provide the most space for the ears and plenty of adjustability for most heads, and they reduce noise well.
It shows that TASCO has many years of experience designing earmuffs.
The fit of these earmuffs is very stable, so they should work well if you need to do overhead work.
I find them comfortable but not as much as the Worktunes Connect or the Honeywell Sync Wireless. The headband force appears to be a bit higher, which likely contributes to the very stable fit but reduces comfort somewhat.
On the other hand, if you have large ears you will appreciate the ample space the ear cushions provide.
The sound of these earmuffs is balanced and they have somewhat more bass than the Honeywell Sync Wireless, but overall the sound lacks sparkle.
- Good adjustability, works for most head sizes.
- Ear cups provide ample space for large ears.
- Very stable fit: good for overhead work.
Sound signature and volume limiter sometimes make them a bit quiet in a noisy environment.
Unlike with the other Bluetooth earmuffs reviewed here, if you have connected the Connex to a wired audio device, you can’t take calls via a Bluetooth-connected phone. (In wired mode, you won’t even hear an incoming call.)
At the time of this review these earmuffs cost significantly more than both the 3M Worktunes Connect + AM/FM and the 3M Worktunes Connect, but as headphones they offer no unique advantages
