If you’re looking for a pair of Bluetooth headphones at a rock-bottom price then you’ve just found it. The OMorc Bluetooth headphones boast a good feature set but don’t expect build quality. The audio performance is a similar affair too, with a passable, but unimpressive, range and quality. Its noise-cancelling microphone and option to use a 3mm cord (when the battery is flat) are solid features though. A good option if budget is your main concern, otherwise, we suggest spending the extra £20 and buying one of the Sony’s featured above.
