When it comes to mobile audio having options are a must, The Genius HS-930BT Headset may not be the highest end or most impressive headset we have seen but it does have some great features and value. The audio quality is impressive and the fact the HS-930BT offers both wired and BT options without the need for buying different headsets is a great feature. They are not without their issues but if your looking for a low cost headset and don’t want to worry about having to always have them charged the 930BT is a must try.
If your out and about a lot the HS-930BT is a great and comfortable headset, it weighs next to nothing and provides you with a impressive 15 hour battery time and the option to use a 3.5mm cable when the battery goes dead. This also provides you with the ability to use the 930BT with devices that do not have Bluetooth without requiring another attachment or accessory.
Genius HS-930BT Giveaway
Testing of the HS-930BT was done over 2 weeks, 2 hours a day of music, gaming and call tests.
- Galaxy S7 for BT and wired testing
- iPhone SE for BT and wired testing
- Dell Precision M4600 Laptop
- Custom Intel Tower with Realtek ALC892 audio
(For PC tests we also used a HyperX Female to dual Male 3.5mm cable for mic tests and gaming)
Whats in the HS-930BT box
In the box you get the HS-930BT, a Micro USB charge cable, a 3.5mm Cable, carrying bag and instructions printed into the box itself.
Easy to use audio controls, even the little Genius “Guy/Girl” is a button, this button is used to answer/hangup on calls and to hold to sync the headset. Also this button is used to turn on and off the headset.
The Microphone is found right under the Micro USB, This is where I see a major fault as audio is facing away from the speaker giving the HS-930BT the worse microphone we have tested yet.
The 3.5mm port is a huge win, Genius did something we wish all wireless headsets did as this single port gives the user the ability to always have their music or audio on the go even when no charger is anywhere near. Having a wired built in option with a BT headset just makes sense.
