Kicker Tabor HP402BT - Buttons on the right earcup control Bluetooth, volume, play/pause track, and answer calls
Our take on the Kicker Tabor HP402BT by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Go wireless with the powerful sound of the Kicker Tabor HDP402BT Bluetooth headphones.
More bang (plus Bluetooth® and bass) for your buck
Kicker proves that a quality pair of wireless headphones needn't break the bank. Their Tabor HP402BT headphones pair up to your smartphone or tablet via aptX, an advanced type of Bluetooth wireless streaming that provides a clearer audio signal. I listened wirelessly one night after dinner, and had no audio dropouts as I cleaned and swept around the kitchen. At one point I forgot I was wireless and walked out of the room. I got halfway down the hall before the music started cutting out.
When I'm doing chores, I prefer the comfort food of current hits and classic rock tunes. The familiar, energetic Kicker sound was on full display. I pumped the volume up and the 'phones handled it with ease. Oversized drivers deliver big, knocking bass, but not at the expense of the other frequencies. My music sounded clear and well-balanced, even as the lower frequencies flexed their muscles.
Tough look, relaxed fit
While they are large and rugged, the Tabor HP402BT headphones feel light when you wear them. They stayed in place as I nodded up and down without too much pressure on the sides of my head. Generous padding on the flexible headband and earpads cushioned all the right places and pressure points.
Clever earcup controls and a wired option if you need it
You can also take hands-free calls on your smartphone. Earcup buttons keep you in control, so you can answer and hang up, adjust the volume, as well as play, pause, and skip tracks. You get 10 hours of Bluetooth operation on a full charge, but if you ever need or want to listen wired, connect the included cable to your listening device's miniplug connection.The cable is flat and tangle-resistant with a one-button in-line mic remote for answering calls.
