GEG-N05 Bluetooth Headphones Review, Budget-Friendly Cans
GEG Audio ships these cans in a small, lightweight box. The headphones are nestled inside of a cardboard frame along with a micro USB charging cable and a detachable audio cable.
Build & Design
GEG-N05 is built for commuters. The headset is very lightweight and comfortable. The headband is lined on the top with a smooth, rubber-like fabric while the underbelly is padded and lined with textured fabric.
The ear cushions are pretty comfortable overall and fit over my entire ear. They are lined with a soft leather and stuffed with what feels like a very fluffy pillow. Though, on the flip side, the ear cups are connected to the headband in a manner that applies more pressure towards the top of the ear cups and not enough on the bottom. Don’t get me wrong, these headphones provide a pretty good seal, but I think there is room for improvement. By design, the shape of the frame and lack of pressure on the bottom also makes for a weird fit, but the cushion-y ear pads help to alleviate the situation. The ear cups do offer some mobility and easily swivel left to right and easily glide along the extenders.
As for the design, GEG Audio went with an exposed wire design, reminiscent of Sennheiser HD 1, but black-on-black and less premium materials which makes this headphone more affordable. GEG-N05 also features an exposed cable between the extenders and ear cups, but their cable is coiled. Lastly, the entire frame is collapsible, which is very efficient for on-the-go travel.
Like any other Bluetooth headset, GEG-N05 is fit with a multifunction button to pause/play music and answer/end calls in addition to volume controls. The headphones also include a detachable cable. It unfortunately is a standard aux and does not include an in-line remote and mic.
Audio is much better than I anticipated – exhibiting a bass line that has a great deal of depth with a nice kick to it. I’m a fan! The mids are present, but not as pronounced and detailed as I’d prefer. The upper mids and highs sound quite lovely, TBH. There’s clarity and a nice degree of separation. The highs, including treble, female vocals, synths, cymbals, etc did a good job of retaining their body at higher volumes – no tinny audio here. As for the overall listening experience, I like it for a $65 wireless headphone, but I wouldn’t complain for a tad more fullness across the frequency response range.
Impedance: 32 ohms
Sound Pressure Level: 115 ± 3db
Frequency Response Range: 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz

These headphones are a good purchase for pretty comfortable, wireless cans under the $100 mark. GEG-N05 can be found at the best price on Amazon.
