Gripping Tech Gear: Bluedio R+ NFC Enabled Bluetooth Headphones9
Who cares about bass anymore?
Lets just jump right in! Right after picking up the Bluedio Bluetooth R+ headphones I put them to the test. Several features immediately gripped my attention and I had very few things to gripe about…
Bluedio R+ NFC Enable Bluetooth Headphones
- The packing feels classy and high quality.
- The sync with my phone was intuitive.
- The headset feels sturdy.
- They look amazing with chrome and glossy plastic.
- Details like etched metal with ‘Hi-fi’ makes them feel high end.
- They feel comfortable on your ears and over the top of your head.
- They instantly cut out the sound from your surroundings.
- The first song I played felt like I was sitting in a car with 2 twelve inch subs thumping away.
- The buttons are positioned in logical locations.
- The buttons are easy to push.
- The right (R) and left (L) is clearly marked.
- There is a micro SD slot.
- Standard micro USB charging (I’ve seen some that have other strange jacks)
- There is an aux cable so you can use the headphones with devices that do not have Bluetooth.
- Extremely long battery life (about 25 hours).
- NFC syncs your device simply by tapping the headphones to it.
- Fits small and large head sizes.
- Never lost connectivity even 50 feet away.
- Bluetooth connects very quickly once setup for the first time.
- The NFC has a short delay before it will recognize and pair with your headset.
- Extra power button is a little confusing.
- They block out almost all sound so wear at appropriate times.
- At the higher volumes some sound can be heard outside of the headphones.
- Fingerprints… between the chrome on the sides and the shiny plastic on all surfaces, they get smudged.
- Blinking light on the side is distracting in the dark.
- A little heavy on the head.
At Gription Gear we absolutely care about bass in our music. Producing amazing sounds in all aspects of music the Bluedio R+ certainly makes the cut. Priced at under $200 this headset has amazing sound and is a great deal for the money.

I have a couple questions about these headphones and was wondering if you might be able to help me. I have my micro SD card inserted into my Bluedio R+ Legend headphones and I can get the green light to come on and play music from the card, but I can’t figure what the other two buttons do or how to use them. I was really hoping for a shuffle option with the SD card. Also, whenever the microphone is enabled, the sound quality gets much worse, like all bass is removed. I visited the official website and downloaded the firmware update, but I’m a bit apprehensive to try to update it myself with little to no instruction, as most of the documentation that came along with the files appears to be in Vietnamese. Any help would be very appreciated! Thank you so much.
I tried the firmware update but ran into an error. I have contacted the manufacturer and hope for a response soon. I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks for the questions. The buttons on the side are only for the SD card functionality. At first we thought one of them was shuffle as well but as you have discovered it does not do that. The three button functionality is as follows:
1st button – Rotates through equalizer settings only while playing music files from the SD card
2nd button – Powers on the device in SD card mode and only plays music on your SD card
3rd button – Toggles the device from SD card mode to aux input mode (looks like a shuffle button)
I have the “Bluedio R + ” headphones (standard, ie without the NFC capability).
In the manual, button 3 is called the ‘Play Mode Switch Button’, and it says it toggles between either playing all tracks in seqence or just playing the current track repeatedly.
At first the button did work in exactly that manner, but recently after going in the ‘repeat’ mode, I am now unable to get back into the normal mode, regardless of how many times I press the button, even after switching off, removing the SD card, re-starting, etc.. ie I’m stuck in repeat mode!
I’m wondering if there’s a fix for this ? I don’t think there’s a way of doing a ‘factory re-set’.
Perhaps the button has just gone faulty; if so, is it a known fault/bug ?
Any suggests would be most welcome !
Just had the pleasure of Buck Cherry, Crazy Bitch on these and I just want more!!!!!! These are my first phones (ear) and so amazed!!
Freedom from the wire!
