I kind of randomly found these headphones while browsing for some unique items on Amazon. These Senso Bluetooth Headphones are sweat proof and weren’t very expensive so I decided to buy them to see if they would work for me while running on the treadmill. I’ve only had them for about 5 days now, but here’s my first impressions/ review on the Senso Bluetooth Headphones.
The Senso headphones are wireless which I was really excited about. Previously, I was running with an old iPhone 5s and my noise cancelling headphones, but it was a little awkward because of the long cord and the weight from the noise cancelling controls. I love having bluetooth headphones because I can be handsfree and not have to think about the cords at all. After just five days with these new headphones, I can never go back to running with traditional headphones again.

SET UP // PAIRING
I plugged in the headphones to charge them once I received them, using the mini charger and plugging it into my laptop. The little charging port is hidden by a small rubber flap. When the headphones are charging, the indicator light shows solid red.
From there, I just navigated to my bluetooth on my phone, and pressed the multifunction on the headphones for six seconds to initiate the pairing. My phone recognized the headphones right away and that was it! I was all set to use the headphones.
SOUND QUALITY // NOISE CANCELLING
I tested out my headphones by listening to my favorite Killers playlist on Spotify. I ended up buying the premium service for 3 mo. at $.99, and I’m really happy with it. Anyway, the music sounded clear and mostly balanced. The bass sounded stronger than on my other headphones. The description says that these are noise cancelling, but I don’t think they are. There’s not an option to turn that on or off, and I don’t feel that pressure/hear that white noise sound. However, when music is playing, it is harder to hear outside noise. I like that because when I’m on the treadmill, I don’t really want to hear anything else.
SWEAT PROOF // COMFORT
I wear the headphones with the ear tips that came already on the headphones and they fit really nicely. The silicone hook fits around the ear to hold the headphones in place as you run, or do whatever. They are light weight and comfortable. So far, I haven’t had any issues with them becoming sweaty or trying to fall out of my ears.
Since the very first charge when the headphones arrived, I’ve used the headphones maybe 2.5 hours while running. The battery light indicator hasn’t shown red flashing to indicate that the battery is low or anything, and apparently you are supposed to get up to 8 hours. So, I might not need to charge for a while now. Also, I am turning the headphones completely off when not in use. Although, you are supposed to get 240 hours of standby time.
These headphones were under $35 and are a great deal. I love them for a workout headphone what is wireless and comfortable. Music sounds clear and rich. The only thing I’ve noticed that is an issue, is that the rubber piece covering the charging door doesn’t close back all the way. It kind of pops out a bit, but I don’t think it affects anything. It’s only been a few days for me, but so far I think they are great and I would recommend them.
