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)
The Genius HS-930BT is not without it’s charm, offering great sound, amazing battery life and some great additional value with the 3.5mm option plus carrying bag. Where it really fails is in the microphone department. at $19-59 I would gladly purchase this headset for Bluetooth headphones only and wish Genius would of just skipped the microphone all together. If your looking for a great set of wireless headphones for gaming and travel you will really enjoy the HS-930BT but if a microphone is required we are going to recommend you look else where.
The Genius HS-930BT has earned our Innovation Award do to it’s great battery life and the inclusion of a wired option that is not seen often enough on wireless devices. Though this headset is far from the best headset we have used it is far from the worst as well. We highly recommend Genius sort out it’s bugs with the Microphone with the next reiteration of their headset line.
