Wired headphones are the worst, and that's coming from someone that owns in excess of 40 pairs. The wires break, tangle, and generally get in your way. Until now.

At the start of 2015, BTunes was successfully funded via Kickstarter, smashing its $40k goal by a cool $10k. You see, enough people agreed with my opening statement; they wanted a wireless option for their favourite pair of headphones. They didn't want to invest in an expensive pair of Bluetooth cans, and who can blame them?

It's at this point that you need to forget the idea of using BTunes with a pair of fully wired headphones, we're strictly talking about the kind of headphones that come with removable wires - which is slowly becoming the norm (but not soon enough).

In terms of process, we're going to make things easier by showing you this .gif demo:

Ok, so it does sort of look like the kind of thing business douchebags used to wear in the 2000s, but you'll soon forget about. Once you've paired the BTunes with your Bluetooth enabled device (or NFC enabled) - which is a pretty straightforward - you'll be presented with incredible clarity due to two stereo quality audio codecs: aptX and AAC. The former provides CD-quality (16-bit / 44.1kHz) audio without loss of quality, whilst AAC jumps in for all you Apple heads. Through our testing, we still found the wired-in sound to be superior, but the trade-off is still in BTunes' favour here.

With 10 hours of music or talk time (which we can confirm is true), the ability to connect to two devices at once, and a price tag of $79 for each model (3.5mm, 2.5mm, QC25 and QC15), this was an easy choice for 'Gadget of the Week'.
