Pendulumic Tach T1 Wireless Headphones
Review by Angie Kibiloski
A couple months ago, I reported on some great high-end technology that I discovered at the Luxury Technology Show in Los Angeles. Pendulumic, the maker of some beautiful, high-fidelity, wireless headphones was one the companies present. Today, I’d like to take a closer look at one of their models, the Tach T1 On-Ear Headphones (Retail $249). This chic set of headphones is stylish and comfortable, affording you hours of enjoyable listening, with crystal clarity, and several modes for customized functionality.
The Tach T1 was super easy to connect to my phone, and is compatible with any Bluetooth enabled device. Within seconds I was enjoying my favorite music through the crisp, high quality speakers. The Bluetooth range is great, with up to 50 feet of wireless freedom, and the sound remained perfectly clear even through multiple walls, which has been an issue with other wireless headphones I’ve recently tried. The on-ear cups are very soft, nestling gently on your ears, and the padded headband is lightweight and adjustable for even a smaller head height like mine, which is another issue I’ve had with other brands. The ear cups even swivel to comfortably suit your individual ear angle, as well as fit flat in their convenient travel case. Safe in this low profile carrying case, you can take these headphones anywhere, fully charged with up to 25 hours of playback time, 10 hours from the internal battery, and another 15 hours from the backup AAA batteries. With the touch of a button, you can even listen to your music with a traveling companion, in the Dual-Share mode, if they have their own set of Tach T1 headphones. You control your music directly from the headphones, with 1 easy button to play, pause, skip, reverse, and adjust the volume. If your playback device is a cell phone, you can answer a call directly from the headphones, using that same control button. Save battery by seamlessly switching from wireless to Amplified or Passive wired modes, just by plugging in. The Passive mode give you standard flat response wired audio, whereas the Amplified mode enhances the audio for a richer sound.
I was very impressed with both the comfort of these headphones, and the sound quality. The speakers played crystal clear sound, enhancing the bass without degrading the clarity, the Bluetooth 4.1 provided exceptional low latency, and the passive noise reduction of the ear cups made for perfect listening even in a crowded room. I would highly recommend the Tach T1 for your on-the-go listening needs.
