Phiaton’s new BT 390 headphones are budget cans for your commute

Headphone manufacturer Phiaton has a new, entry-level model to its line of Bluetooth headphones: the BT 390. The BT 390s on-ear headphones costs just $79, and were specifically designed for commuting and travel, with a foldable design for easily stowing in a bag.

It’s hard to say whether or not the BT 390s are a good deal without listening to them first, but the sub-$100 price tag, clean design, and claims of up to 30 hours of battery life are encouraging.

As part of the budget part of the proceedings, the BT 390s offer physical buttons for controlling playback and volume, instead of the touch panels on Phiaton’s higher-end models. Given that I tend to prefer hardware buttons for headphones, however, that’s not necessarily a bad thing in my book. The headphones also have an integrated microphone for answering calls, and can be directly connected to a phone or computer over 3.5mm if the battery dies.

The BT 390s are available now on Amazon.
