TaoTronics – The SA headphone market’s newest entrant

TaoTronics is an international consumer electronics company and specialises in the development of a wide variety of products including sound bars, LED lamps, and even air humidifiers at affordable prices – without compromising on product quality.

One of the most popular products in their catalogue are their high-quality headsets, which offer a great audio experience without costing an arm and a leg. Until now, this great brand has not been available to South Africans, but thankfully this is set to change.

TaoTronics headsets, sound bars and LED Lamps are now coming to South African customers thanks to leading SA distributor Syntech – who are already exclusive distributors of other popular hardware brands like Crucial, Redragon, and Romoss. These products will be available on Takealot at highly competitive prices.

Syntech provided us with two TaoTronics headsets to test – the TT-BH22 active noise cancellation (ANC) over-ear headphones, and their TT-BH07 sport in-ear earphones.

TT-BH22 ANC over-ear headphones

The BH22 headphones offer a truly premium listening experience.

Audio played through these headphones is full and immersive. They offer deep, strong and crisp higher tones. After extensive testing across various music genres, it is clear that no matter what music style you listen to, the BH22 headphones will be a fantastic fit.


They also offer a great experience when listening to podcasts or watching movies, as the clear audio almost makes it feel as if you’re in the same room as the people speaking.

Their active noise cancellation technology is one of the most impressive features of this headset. It ensures that you minimise background noise and get the most out of every song without being distracted by your surroundings. As a result, listening to music with the BH22s truly feels like you’ve entered a new world.

In our MyBroadband offices, which are regularly filled with discussions and conversations, the BH22 headphones blocked out this sound with ease, allowing me to focus on my work without being distracted by office chatter.


The BH22 headphones ship with a USB charging cable and a 3.5mm audio cable. The audio cable allows for wired listening, but you can also use the built-in Bluetooth 4.2 functionality to listen to your favourite tunes wirelessly and at high quality.

The BH22 also allows for 25-30 hours of playing time between charges, which means that you should never be caught out by a dead battery.

The TaoTronics’ BH22 headphones are both foldable and can rotate 90 degrees, making it easy to adjust them to provide a more comfortable experience, while also making them simple to store within the carrying case.

They also offer incredibly soft, ergonomic ear cups made from memory foam which make it feel, as TaoTronics’ website says, like you’re “wearing a pillow.” It comes in a stylish oval-shaped carrying case, which is a useful way to transport them with you wherever you go.


After spending some time using these headphones, it quickly became clear that their affordable R1,499 price tag on Takealot offers fantastic value to consumers – as they offer top quality listening that is comparable to more expensive alternatives.

If you’re looking for fantastic over-ear headphones that won’t break the bank, the TaoTronics BH22 headphones should be a serious consideration.

TT-BH07 in-ear earphones

The TaoTronics TT-BH07 earbuds offer a wireless audio experience designed specifically for those passionate about exercise.

They are incredibly comfortable and fit snuggly into the listener’s ears, ensuring that neither running nor playing sports will result in them falling out. As a result, they truly are a dream to use – whether you’re training for a marathon or just trying to shed a few kilograms.

Due to their snug design, they don’t suffer from excessive sound leakage, and instead offer you an incredibly full audio experience. They provide a crisp, clear sound profile that is well-balanced – whether you’re listening to a podcast or to music.

Podcast voices are easy to hear, ensuring that you have no struggles when following a conversation or monologue. Music, meanwhile, doesn’t suffer from the tinny audio quality many would expect from such well-priced earphones. Much like with the BH-22 headphones, these earphones provide incredible bang for your buck.

The TT-BH07 earbuds are not limited to being used for listening to music and podcasts. They also offer fantastic phone call capabilities, allowing you to communicate with your friends and family with ease while on the go.


This function also includes cVc 6.0 noise isolation technology to filter out surrounding noise when you’re in a call, ensuring that those you are speaking with can hear your voice loud and clear.

They are also IPX5 water resistant and handle sweat with ease. They are also light enough that they don’t feel like they’re inhibiting you in any way, and if you do want to stop listening, you can use the built-in magnets within the earbuds to wear them around your neck like a necklace

The earbuds use Bluetooth 5.0 technology, which uses less power and offers more efficient data transfer capabilities – which translates to high-quality audio. This audio is further optimised by Qualcomm’s aptX audio technology, which improves the transmission of sound through Bluetooth. TaoTronics’ website says that the earphones offer up to 6 hours of playtime and take just 1 hour to charge.

The TT-BH07 earbuds cost just R569 on Takealot. For such affordable wireless earbuds, one wouldn’t expect very much in terms of audio quality. However, the TT-BH07 earbuds offer a surprisingly great listening experience.

Distributors interested in the newly-available TaoTronics range of headsets can contact Syntech now to learn more.
