Bluetooth is great for so many things. It gives us a freedom of movement which is impossible with wires. But as great as Bluetooth is, its main drawback is latency, which can cause problems when gaming or watching TV.
Fortunately, devices with aptX low latency can reduce this latency to a point where it is not noticeable to the human ear. If you’re on a budget and looking for a pair of wireless headphones for TV or gaming, the Avantree Audition Pro is a great choice.

Avantree Audition Pro Headphones are comfortable to wear, with super soft protein leather earpads and an adjustable padded headband. The earpads are also user replaceable. I would have no problem wearing them for long periods of time. I could easily watch a movie with them on and not be bothered in the least. I also like that the headphones are foldable, making them easier to carry or put into your bag for on the go use.
The Audition Pro is made from durable reinforced metal and features a level of durability that is excellent for its price range. I don’t see occasional drops or bumps as being a problem, nor would taking them on the go or carrying them in a bag.
Features of the Avantree Audition Pro Headphones
The Avantree Audition Pro wireless Bluetooth headphone features incredibly long battery life with up to 40 hours of music play per charge. They also include a built in microphone for taking calls and giving voice commands to your smartphone.
One of the best features of the Audition Pro is its aptX low latency compatibility which allows you to watch movies or TV wirelessly, without noticeable latency. With an aptX compatible device, latency is reduced to a delay of 32-40 milliseconds, an amount which is not noticeable to human eyes.
Keep in mind that you will have to have an aptX low latency supported Bluetooth transmitter in order for this feature to work. Check and make sure your TV has this feature before purchasing. If your TV does not, you can buy a separate aptX transmitter such as the Avantree Oasis in order to make it work.
Although battery life on the Avantree Audition Pro is a long 40 hours, you can also use the included 3.5mm cable to use the headphones in wired mode. This is a great feature if you want to save battery power or if you forget to charge. When charging is required, simply connect the included micro USB cable and the device charges in about three hours.
The Audition Pro’s multipoint feature allows you to connect to two devices simultaneously. For example, you can connect to both your Bluetooth enabled TV and your smartphone. That way if you are watching TV and a call comes, you can easily switch and take the call.
Pairing is easy with the NFC feature, which allows for one tap connection. There is also an intelligent voice function which informs you of the status of the headphones. I found the Bluetooth connection to not only be easy to pair, but stable and reliable as well. Once you have paired the first time, repairing is easy.
While reviewing this item, I watched on an aptX compatible TV and couldn’t see any visible latency between the TV picture and the headphone’s audio. The low latency feature also makes them ideal for gaming.
Onboard controls include volume up and down, previous and next track selection, and a multifunction button (MFB) which can be used for additional operations such as powering on and off, taking calls, ending calls, dialing the last number, and playing and pausing music. I found the controls to be easy to reach and the MFB button to be easy as well, once you get the hang of it.
For the price you pay, the Avantree Audition Pro is a good sounding set of headphones. They feature an onboard bass boost which can be tuned on or off at will. This is a nice feature in that you can adjust the bass without adjusting your TV or smartphone.
The bass is more neutral without the bass boost on, but obviously more powerful with the bass boost engaged. The bass boost does a good job of giving you elevated low end without going overboard.
The mids are clear and distinct. I didn’t have any trouble understanding actors’ while watching TV. The highs are good too, not brittle or sibilant. They lack the depth, clarity, and flat frequency response of a more expensive set of audiophile headphones, but for the price, they sound good and are enjoyable to listen to.
Our Verdict on Avantree Audition Pro
With its low price tag and long list of features, the Avantree Audition Pro is a headphone worth considering, especially if you require a low latency headphone for watching movies, TV, or gaming.
With added features such as a built in mic for taking calls and giving voice commands to your smartphone; voice prompts, the ability to pair to two devices at once, and a good overall sound, the Avantree Audition Pro offers considerable bang for the buck.
I especially like the wearing comfort of this headphone. If you’re going to watch an entire movie or binge watch Netflix for hours at a time, you need a comfortable headphone and the Avantree Audition Pro is definitely comfortable to wear.
