The Kinivo BTH240 bluetooth neckband headphones are the upgraded and redesigned version of the popular Kinivo BTH220 model.
They are very lightweight at only 73g and connect via Bluetooth or A2DP. The audio quality is far better than you would expect from a set of Bluetooth neckband headphones with such a low price tag.

Alternatives to Bluetooth Neckband Headphones
Bluetooth Neckband headphones typically offer a longer battery life and features due to the additional internal space for components compared to a regular set of wireless earphones. If you don’t like the design of the neckband style, then you might consider looking at True Wireless in-ear headphones.
Over the past two years, I have reviewed countless in-ear Bluetooth headphones and so far I’ve only found one set that has had a reliable connection. This is why I tend to favour the neckband headphone style.
For those of you that do like the idea of absolutely no wires, check out my review of the Soul X-Shocks as these are the only ones that I know of that have a rock solid connection.
What Neckband Headphones am I currently using?
For the past two months, my Bluetooth neckband headphones of choice have been the Legato Arc’s by Spigen. I did a full review at the start of the year and I was blown away by the quality. The reason I decided to continue using them after the testing phase and review was complete was to test their durability
They feature an ultra-thin nanofiber cable that had me a little concerned. It’s so tiny, I was convinced it would eventually fail if I continued using it.
I’m happy to report they are still performing perfectly and my time spent putting them to the test has made me like them even more. If you’d like to find out more, here’s a link to the full review.
