In fact, even today we're going to talk about a pair of headphones with active noise cancellation, that is TaoTronics TT-BH22. Let's find out more in detail how they performed during our tests.

Construction and design
Il design it is not particularly innovative or modern, rather it is rather simple but personally I appreciated it because they can be worn in any situation without being out of place.
I materials used are discrete, let's talk about plastic e skin (it could very well be faux leather) which on the whole adequately reflect its price range, but since they are foldable they gave me back a feeling of fragility. Let me explain better, I am afraid that the parts involved in the movement to open and close may become loose and become too fluid.
In all this TaoTronics TT-BH22 they are not too bulky and above all when they are closed they are very comfortable to take with us inside the special case. Also the wearability satisfied me thanks to the very comfortable leather pavilions that wrap the ear well, as well as the rod that rests on the head, which has the same padding. After long sessions of use you will not feel any discomfort, even if you probably have hot ears in the summer.
The headband can be adjusted in length and the 90 ° rotated pavilions. The only ones physical keys present are:
- Play / pause / power;
- next song / volume +;
- previous song / volume -;
- switch for active noise cancellation.
Finally, there are two status LEDs, one for noise cancellation and one for charging, as well as the Micro USB and mini-jack input.
On board TaoTronics TT-BH22 we have the Bluetooth 4.2 and not the 5.0 unfortunately, but in spite of everything we can't complain. The operation of coupling it will not be difficult to do and not even the reset one, just follow the instructions in the manual. Once paired, in the future the pairing between smartphone and headphones will be very fast, approximately 3-4 seconds.
The signal is always stable and has a maximum radius of approx 10 meters. Even in other situations I have not encountered any problems, not even when watching videos or films where latency is practically zero.
There are not many specifications on the web, the only ones that can be found are those related to dimensions of altoparlanti, which are from 40 mm. On board, we also find a system for the active noise cancellation cVc 6.0. Starting with this aspect, I must say that too passive turns out to be pretty good because thanks to the good construction and the right dimensions of the pavilions, the TaoTronics TT-BH22 they isolate us quite well even without activating anything, especially if we set the volume to maximum (but even at 50% it is difficult to hear outside noises, unless they are loud and close together).
Activating the noise cancellation we are going to isolate ourselves more and the only sounds we will hear slightly are, for example, those of a vacuum cleaner that is around 1 or 2 meters from us. However, I've always preferred turn it off, since the frequencies are represented more faithfully, that is a good presence of the bass is always maintained but, above all, the highs are not muffled.
So, normally we can have a very good audio thanks to well balanced frequencies and a very powerful volume. Even using the AUX cable the music reproduction is well beyond the sufficiency, indeed, I found a slightly better sound.
Le TaoTronics TT-BH22 also integrate a microphone through which we can hold telephone conversations. The captured audio is good and fairly clean and our interlocutor can hear us very well as long as we don't stray too far from the smartphone, because in doing so the other person will hear a slight rumble of his own voice. I still couldn't understand why, but I did a lot of tests and the same thing happened every time. It's probably a question of Bluetooth signal and interference.
L'autonomy of the TaoTronics TT-BH22 è Crazy, believe me! In fact, to download them I had to listen to music for 7 hours per day for 4 days (with volume at 70%). So we settle on an average of about 28 hours which can then vary depending on the type of use (eg music genre, volume, film / video and calls).
Conclusions - TaoTronics TT-BH22
Le TaoTronics TT-BH22 are available on Amazon about 54 € (the price may vary if you read this review in the coming weeks) and all in all it is a price more than balanced for a product that offers so much in terms of audio quality and autonomy. TaoTronics did not disappoint our expectations by launching a product practical e functional.
