My main issues with any set of Bluetooth headphones are fit, battery and performance. Due to the battery location the fit seems to always be a bit more difficult to get right, the battery itself is normally 4 or fewer hours, and the performance is poor due to any obstruction. The Intempo Wireless earphones go against the grain on this and provide a high performance, high battery and great fitting pair of Bluetooth headphones.
The neckband is housed in rubber and sports the battery, Bluetooth and USB charger. yes USB-C! I first thought that these looked heavy and bulky, but how wrong was I. The weight is distributed between the two ends of the neckband, which sit on the neck. This means no weight is added to the ears.
The earbuds are incredibly light, and only the controls on the right earbud add any sort of weight. The controls are the standard 3 button setup and work incredibly well. The major advantage of the neckband is that the battery can be a lot larger, and this one clocks in at 7 hours, which is amazing.

The lack of Active Noise Cancelling is noticeable and there can be a bit of outside bleeding in. For this, I would recommend choosing the buds very carefully, as I went through 3 or 4 before I found the best ones for my ears. The only bad thing about the sound I would say is the bass is quite low and is noticeable to normally high bass tracks. Voices are really clear though, with excellent highs.
I found the fit of these to be excellent, and when running they stayed in with no problems. The neckband design is a stroke of genius and gives these a massive performance boost. For me, they may not be the best sounding compared to what I have used in the past. But I think with the perfect bud choice, and some good tracks these will be perfect for a lot of people.
