I received a review unit from the good folks over at Mobilefun of  the Nokia Coloud Boom Headset.

As many of you know I have been looking around for a good headset for quite sometime now. Good thing this came in for me to review. I have been using this headset for about a week now, & I would like to share my thoughts.

First off lets start with the PROS .

PROS:

  • Microphone
  • Noise Cancelling
  • Price
  • Sound Quality
CONS:
  • One Button Controls

INTRODUCTION:

The Nokia Coloud Boom Headset feels really good. They’re made of really light plastic material and has a flexible band that is really comfortable even for long periods  of use. My commute to work is usually a 45 minutes train ride and I did not feel any discomfort at all. The headset also has an adjustable headphone to best fit your head. Its a one size fits all type of headset. The cord is made out of a tangle free flat ribbon and also feels high quality.

SOUND QUALITY:
The sound quality on this headset is pretty good, no static or distortion at all even at max volume on my Nokia Lumia 520. The bass is pretty good as well, it feels like you’re in a big room with bass all around you. My only complaint is I do not think its loud enough. They could have made it a little more louder. That’s just my opinion, sometimes there are consequences with that. Sometimes if you decide to make the headset louder, it might give distortion sound.
UPDATE: After some further testing I’ve found out that its not the headset, It was actually the Nokia Lumia 520. I tested the Coloud Boom headset on the iPhone and it was so loud that I could not even go max on the volume. My max volume on the iPhone with the Coloud Boom headset that I can handle was probably 75%.

NOISE CANCELLING:

I had an awesome experience with the Noise Cancelling on this headset. Like I said the sound quality is great and you hardly hear any disturbance around you. All you hear is the great music. I almost missed my train stop while using these headset on the train.

MICROPHONE AND CONTROLS:

One of the features I like about this headset is the Microphone and the Remote Control to pick up calls and control music. The microphone works really great, I haven’t had any complaint regarding sound issues from the other end. The Lack of multiple buttons is what I don’t like about this headset. There is only one button that controls a lot of stuff.

Here is how the Control works

  • Press button once to pick up a call.
  • While listening to music, press button once to Pause Music
  • While listening to music, press button twice to skip to the next song.

The down side.. No Repeat and Volume Controls.

CONCLUSION:

I was overly satisfied with the Nokia Coloud Boom Headset. For the price at below $50 USD. I find these headset a steal and have a fighting chance against the competition SOL Republic, Soul, SkullCandy, Beats, etc. The headset is loud and has a great sound quality and awesome noise cancelling. Nokia did not make a mistake partnering with Coloud in the making of these headset. Once again I want to thank MobileFun for the review unit & you should also check out the other headsets & accessories they have available click Here.
