Panasonic B100: quality battle and sound utilitarianism

In consumer technology there are two types of milestones: the technological novelties and prices themselves. The first give way to the market with its immense or folding screens, their cameras that protrude or, a long time ago, the disappearance of the keyboards. However, it is the second ones that make these changes end up reaching the general public. In the sector of the wireless headphones, leave far the barrier of 100 euros can cause the cables to end up as anachronistic in the 21st century as a floppy disk in the late XX. In this scenario, the Panasonic B100, with its 69.90 officers (around 55, according to the store), would be one of the actors of change, even if it is with a secondary role. They are not the printing press, but a novel.

The price, of course, is not everything. If it is not accompanied by a consolidated performance - not perfect, it is much better than you would expect in that segment - it does not help. Here serves. They are battle headphones, to endure what they throw them in the day to day and end withdrawn with honors in a drawer past a few years. In front of the barbarism of a market that surpasses without puding the hundred and peak euros is firmly opposed utilitarianism.

Thus, the main argument in favor of these headphones is also the simplest: they sound very well and not only for their price. If you take into account the economic variable upload several steps. The paste is that the powerful sound - the serious are especially strong - is not accompanied by active noise cancellation and its traditional format does not add insulation. Music is heard and the street is heard.

From the design point of view, the Panasonic B100 is not the most beautiful in the market. They are elegant and sober, without excess or cabrioles, but something boring. Although they do not fall into brutalism, they have it quite closer than modernism or rococo. In a market in which companies are increasingly trying to innovate more, even though there is little space for design - in their ways and in their own ear that houses them - the company has decided to pull out the well known. That, to deceive us, it works without desencing.

Interestingly, his cargo box manages to draw attention despite his simplicity with something as old, at least, like the wheel: a circle. This charging indicator makes the pair button function and break the lines to give a simple touch of personality. At the top, the brand puts its name and a new texture.

Between the two, they achieve a 16-hour autonomy: four with additional loaded headphones and 12 in the refueling that allows the case, which warns its circle of a ominous red when it comes to pass through the plug.

While the size of the B100 is considerable, with much more body than similar devices of other brands, the truth is that they are comfortable and are not especially heavy. They are kept without problems in their place with glasses and mask, although they are not adapted to sport and their abrupt movements. In addition, recolting them generally causes tactile controls.

For good or for evil, the controls have the sensitivity of a teen poet, in love, unrequited and drunk; That is, too much too. If it is channeled and you can use it is something perfect, but if this energy goes from your hands, it is cumbersome. Thus, a slight touch triggers the control, so recolving the earphone in your ear will easily mean stopping playback, skipping the current track or invoking the voice assistant. In any case, the functions are complete and simple to learn: a touch in any 'helmet' pause music and two in the right pass from song, while three retreat; On the left, this serves to lower and raise the volume, respectively. The prolonged pulsation, on the other hand, calls the Alexa of Turn or rejects an incoming call.

All in all, B100 of Panasonic are a very good option in which the pears are scarce and contextual. What (little) bad or is compensated with the good or is forgiven with the price. Utilitarianism or barbarism.
