Back in 2010, he was dismissed from his position as a lecturer at the university. This made him get another job at his friend’s digital marketing company as a blog writer. After a few years, when he was thinking the article writing is his mission, Google pushed the Panda update and affected the company and websites he was working at. (Un)fortunately and surprisingly, he got an offer to head a large knitting factory. In 2016, he got his Ph.D. and resumed teaching at the University … and writing tech-related articles following his passion.

When choosing true wireless Bluetooth earbuds, you should pay attention at only a few features. Of course, we prefer they look amazing. But also, they should comfortably fit in the ear. We would like them to support the latest version of Bluetooth. Also, we want an easier interaction experience. Thus, many things should be done hands-free. But even if it is not so, we shouldn’t do complicated moves and operations on it. At last, the earbuds we are going to buy should be packed with large batteries and provide a long endurance. When I try to combine all these features into one, there are only a few brands I can trust. But I would like to pass the overpriced models of Sony and other giants. Personally, I often prefer brands that make high-quality products and require a sensible price for it. Earlier this year, I got two brand new headphones from iTeknic. After using them for a week, I understand this company is really capable of designing outstanding products. This time I am going to review their newly launched Bluetooth earbuds, namely the iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds.

iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Design

The appearance of the iTeknic IK-BH004 is not a special topic of conversation. I mean it comes with the high build quality and the materials used in it do not cause any doubts. But there is nothing special the earbuds can boast of. Honestly, no earbuds can boast of a unique design. This is the most painful part for the earbuds manufacturers.

Inside the charging case, we can find LED light that notifies about the charging status of the internal batteries. The 500mAh battery inside the box can charge the two earbuds twice. So you have to keep the case charged and put the earbuds into it every time after using them. Otherwise, one day you will find that there is no power.

As for the earbuds themselves, they have a bit longer tails. But due to the outstanding design, they wouldn’t prevent any of the operations. Also, they won’t fall off from your ears. It’s very comfortable to wear. A 5.8-millimeter driver fits inside each of these earbuds. Noise-canceling microphones eliminate background noise and enhance voice pick-up during phone conversations. Personally, I recommend you to wear them when exercising. Inside the box, you can also find two other pairs of earpads.

Moreover, the iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are IPX5 waterproof. So exercising under the rain shouldn’t harm them.

As for the interaction with these earbuds, everything is simpler than you think. In fact, the iTeknic IK-BN004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds have won Reddot design award 2019. Due to the combined fine design with great functions, it can fight against any top brand.

iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Connectivity

When pulled from the charging case, the earbuds will pair with each other and then began to search for a device. We tested the iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds with Windows-running computers and Android devices. And we had no problem when connecting. You can connect the device in both mono and stereo mode.

Like all the previous headphones coming our way from iTeknic, these earbuds support Bluetooth 5.0 as well. It’s the latest version of Bluetooth. Due to the enhanced communication features, it is used for multiple devices, such as wireless headphones, wireless keyboards, mice, game controllers, and even for communication between various smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

However, if you own a smartphone that supports Bluetooth 5.0 and your headphones support the older version, you won’t get any benefit from this friendship. Bluetooth is backward compatible. This means you can continue using your existing Bluetooth 4.2 and older devices with a Bluetooth 5.0 phone. Plus, when you buy new Bluetooth 5.0-enabled accessories, they will work better thanks to the higher version of Bluetooth on your phone.

But this is not the only cool feature of Bluetooth 5.0. Say, it allows you to play audio on two connected devices simultaneously. Usually, I do this when watching movies with my wife. You could even stream two different audio sources to two different audio devices at the same time. This means we can listen to two different pieces of music, but streaming from the same phone.

iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Advantages

Even on the box of the iTeknic IK-BH004, we can see a special term True Wireless Stereo. TWS is a technology, which allows two audio devices to be paired via Bluetooth. In fact, we have talked about this above. But this is implemented not only due to Bluetooth 5.0 but also to TWS. As separate transmissions can be sent to the left and right earpieces, it permits the reception of a stereo signal.

Moreover, the iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds are equipped with Digital Signal Processing Technology. DSP improves sound quality by tweaking the original signal in several different ways. Particularly, it generates wider frequency output, filters out reverberation, and includes both automatic gain control and dynamic adjustment.

Finally, we should talk about the biggest highlight of iTeknic earphones. It has long-lasting battery life. On a single charge, the earbuds can provide up to 6 hours of operation. And if taking into account the fact that the case can charge them twice, these earbuds can last for 18 hours. Though in some cases, it can last for 25 hours due to the low power-consumption chips, I didn’t have such an experience.

Final Words

It’s unfair to say the iTeknic IK-BH004 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds offer something that top brands don’t. In this sense, we have reviewed a pair of high-end earbuds that can compete with any brand. Due to the low-power consumption chip, Bluetooth 5.0, optimized touch operations, TWS technology, DSP technology, and a few other features, these earbuds provide a long-lasting and really immersive performance. I was using it when doing fitness. But there are myriads of scenarios you can use them for.

 

At last, these earbuds cost $54.99. Just search for similar products on the web and compare with the iTeknic earbuds. Most of the results will show overpriced headphones from big manufacturers. But they won’t bring anything that these earphones don’t.

iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones Offer the Best Sound Quality Using ANC Technology

If you have been trying to find a great pair of headphones, we suggest that you check out the iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones. These Bluetooth headphones give you superior sound thanks to the ANC technology. ANC technology stands for Active Noise Canceling technology, which helps reduce the environmental noise around you to offer great sound.

There are a lot of noise-canceling headphones out there, but the iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones really stand out among the competition. We wanted to tell you more specifications and details about these headphones since there is a special deal going on right now. This special deal is only for our readers, so keep reading to learn about the coupon code you can use to save money on this amazing product.

iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones Features ANC Technology & More

The iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones use ANC technology, which is Active Noise Canceling technology, and this makes it a great choice for those in environments with a lot of noise. Whether you are sitting in an office setting, in the middle of the city, or in a plane, the ANC technology will effectively cancel out all surrounding noise. The really great thing about this ANC technology is that it is something that works both in the wireless mode and in the wired mode. Whichever mode you use these headphones in, you will experience the amazing sound quality through the use of this ANC technology.

What we really have enjoyed about the iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones is that it has a very quick charge time. In just 5 to 8 minutes, you can get up to 4-hours of use in the wireless mode. If you charge the headphones for an hour, you will be able to use the wireless headphones for about 20 hours of normal use before you have to charge it up again.

We love the long-lasting charge that these headphones have with them. A lot of other Bluetooth headphones only give you 10 hours or less of play time before they need to be charged up again. The very quick charge is also good for people on the go who do not have hours to wait for headphones to charge up before using them.

iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones Are Comfortable & Adjustable

When it comes to a lot of headphones, we know how uncomfortable they can be on your head. We really love how comfortable these headphones are. They are adjustable so that you can customize them so they fit comfortably on your head regardless of your head size. The ear cups swivel up to 90 degrees and also come with soft protein ear padding.

These ear pads are very lightweight for maximum comfort, but also are durable and can withstand use in any conditions. The headband itself is foldable, which makes it great for both travel and saving space wherever you choose to keep them at home. You can easily fold them into the carrying bag which is provided with your purchase.

They are also foldable so that they can fit easily into a carry-on bag or your purse. It is difficult to find a pair of headphones that are lightweight, comfortable, durable, and also provide awesome sound quality. With the iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones, you will be able to get all of these things at a very reasonable price.

iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones Allows for Hands-Free Calling

The Bluetooth 5.0 connection provides you with clear and reliable audio for all of your calls. You can stream music without being interrupted and you can answer phone calls that are clear and crisp. There is a built-in microphone within the headphones that are cVc 6.0, and this is what gives you the amazing clear calls without hearing any background noise. You will not have to worry about missing a phone call, even if you are listening to music when the call is coming through.

The iTeknic Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones also come with a 12-month warranty, which is really cool. There is also a 12-month warranty extension that you will get thanks to the iTeknic company itself. So you will get 24-months of coverage on these headphones in case something happens. The customer service is very good and the staff is super friendly. Any issues you have are promptly taken care of by the iTeknic team.

Review of the Iteknic Ik-Bh004 Tws Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

It wasn’t long ago that true wireless earbuds were considered more an awkward toy than anything of real value. Due to battery requirements, they were larger and heavier than ideal, and operating time was severely limited.

Over the last couple of years, due to improvements in battery design and the rollout of Bluetooth 5.0, these devices have become more efficient and smaller in size. The adoption of a storage container which doubles as a power bank ensures these earbuds can quickly be recharged and put back into use.

This is my second iTeknic earbud review. My first article covered the IK-BH001; a wireless Bluetooth device with earpieces that were connected via a short cable.

The IK-BH004 goes one step further, incorporating True Wireless Stereo technology. Each of the earpieces is wireless capable and works independently.

Description

The iTeknic IK-BH004 consists of a storage/charging box, USB cable, two wireless earbuds, six earpads, and a user’s guide.

The charging case weights in at 45 grams with both earbuds inserted. It is 54 millimeters across, 48 millimeters wide, and 26 millimeters in height. One end can be flipped open to gain access to the interior. A mini USB slot is used, in conjunction with the USB cable, to charge the case’s 500mAh Lithium battery.

LED lights indicate the charging status of the internal battery when connected to power. Otherwise, they display the battery level of the earbuds as they are being charged. This case is capable of fully recharging the earbuds twice.

Three sets of differently sized earpads are provided to ensure the earpieces fit correctly.

Each earbud weighs four grams and extends 40 millimeters in length. They are rated IPX5. The iTeknic IK-BH004 earbuds are compatible with Bluetooth 5.0, and their built-in battery can provide up to six hours of use.

A 5.8-millimeter driver fits inside each of these earbuds. Noise-canceling microphones eliminate background noise and enhance voice pick-up during phone conversations.

When pulled from the charging case, the earbuds will pair with each other and then began to search for a device. Simply select the earbuds using your phone, MP3 player, or computer.

Various commands, including those required to control volume or accept a call, are given by tapping the touchscreen located at the back of the earbuds.

The Manufacturer

Iteknic is trademarked by Shenzhen NearbyExpress Technology Development Company Limited which is a division of the Sunvalley Group.

Sunvalley was founded in 2007 and is the brand owner of RAVPower, VAVA, TaoTronics, Anjou, Sable, and HooToo. This company is headquartered in Shenzhen, China, and has subsidiaries located in San Francisco, Tokyo, Singapore, and Hamburg.

Bluetooth

Iteknic’s earbuds are Bluetooth 5.0 capable and compatible with earlier versions. This device paired to both my computer and the MP3 player quickly and without complications. Due to the inclusion of a microphone, the headset can also be used with a smartphone.

The theoretical maximum distance for Bluetooth 5.0 is 240 meters. During my tests, however, both my computer and MP3 player were equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 transmitters which, regrettably, have one quarter the range and half the speed of the newest version.

While listening to music transmitted from my computer, the earbuds worked perfectly until I entered my kitchen. Then, as I neared the far end of the room, the reception would sometimes falter. This was due to my computer’s older Bluetooth version and signal degradation caused by the pair of outside walls that separated these devices.
TWS Technology

True Wireless Stereo refers to a technology which allows two audio devices to be paired via Bluetooth. In the case of earbuds, separate transmissions can be sent to the left and right earpieces. This permits the reception of a stereo signal.

Digital Signal Processing Technology

The IK-BH004 is equipped with Digital Signal Processing Technology. DSP improves sound quality by tweaking the original signal in several different ways. DSP generates wider frequency output, filters out reverberation, and includes both automatic gain control and dynamic adjustment.
Durability

The IK-BH004’s earpieces appear to be well made and, once I’d selected the proper earpads, fit snugly and comfortably.

These earbuds are rated IPX5. While you cannot go swimming with this device, those of us silly enough to run in the rain will not experience difficulties.

The storage box protected the earbuds and kept them charged when they were not in use.

Test Results

I wore these earbuds while playing games, listening to music, and watching Netflix. The device can also be paired with a Bluetooth capable smartphone.

I’ve recently tested iTeknic’s new IK-BH005 headphones. While the headset’s sound quality was superior, the IK-BH004 earbuds provided stiff competition. Frequency range and bass response proved strong.

The earpieces fit correctly. They were reasonably comfortable and remained firmly in place during my morning walks.

Battery life worked out to five hours on a single charge. That’s a little less than specified, but I do tend to crank up the volume louder than most.

Once I finish my walk, I usually visit the local coffee shop to grab a donut—we retired folk spend a lot of time drinking coffee and listening to gossip. While the war stories are being traded around, my earbuds are recharging in their carrying case.

Fit and finish are excellent. I found no problems related to quality control.

iTeknic IK-BH001 Wireless Stereo Headset with up to 24 hours playback launching July 20

Jed John Ikoba——From Gizmochina.com

Seasoned tech content writer at Gizmochina with a keen interest in smartphones and other tech gadgets; Robots, VR, cameras, drones, AR, and lots.

In the early days of Bluetooth headphones, it was perhaps the worst way to listen to music. But thanks to improved wireless transmission standards, such as aptX and innovations in battery technology, Bluetooth earbuds are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to listen to music. The fun is usually cut short due to the battery capacity that is usually crammed into the earbud. If you’re lucky, you could see a wireless headset that can deliver up to 8 hours playback while others don’t even last more than 2-3 hours. However, a new wireless headset dubbed iTeknic IK-BH001 wireless stereo headset is about launching with a lofty promise.


The iTeknic IK-BH001 Bluetooth headset is touted to deliver up to 24 hours of playback time. This is perhaps, the standout feature of the Bluetooth headphone but the gadget is expected to coming packing several other premium features. The 24-hour playtime was achieved using the latest low power-consuming Bluetooth chips and improved battery capacity.

The iTeknic headset has a sleek, stylish design and a solid build. It is a high-performance headset ideal for exercise, although any outgoer will also find their lightweight functionality and impressive sound isolation highly appealing. In addition to offering 24 hours playback per charge, the headset has Bluetooth 5.0 which guarantees excellent call and streaming quality. There is also an IPX4 sweat and weather resistance. It adopts an in-ear design with a hook which keeps it firmly in place even if the wearer is out jogging or doing our vigorous exercises. There are also control buttons for volume control and to power on/off the gadget. The control buttons can also be used to control calls.

iTeknic IK-BH001 Wireless Stereo Headphone is scheduled for launch on December 28. When that happens we’ll bring you more details of the Bluetooth headset. Also, expect our review of the headset that promises an outstanding 24-hour battery life soon.

Review of the iTeknic IK-BH005 Active Noise Canceling Headphones From Walter Shillington

Walter Shillington

Walter Shillington writes about products he is familiar with. His articles focus on healthcare, electronics, watches and household items.

A few months back, I reviewed iTeknic’s IK-BH002 ANC headphone. It was a well-built device, making use of recent advances in both Bluetooth and battery technology. I particularly liked the active noise canceling feature and always carry this headset when traveling by air.

Iteknic has recently introduced a new device of this type, designating it the IK-BH005. Over the following article, I will compare the two headsets, explaining the changes and examining the benefits—if any—of purchasing the new device rather than the old.

Description

The iTeknic IK-BH005 weighs in at 291 grams and, due to the inclusion of ear cushions designed to cover the entire ear, makes use of passive noise resistance. When the headphone’s carrying case and accessories are included, total weight works out to 504 grams.

Its speaker cups can swivel up to 90 degrees and pivot slightly to provide a comfortable fit and allow compact storage. Both right and left arms adjust to conform to the size of the wearer’s head.

The right speaker cup is equipped with a volume control, an on/off/pairing button, microphone, 3.5-millimeter input, and a switch which activates active noise canceling. There are also LEDs used to signal a Bluetooth connection and confirm that ANC is activated. A mini USB input, fitted to the left speaker cup, is used when charging the device.

The microphone is of the cVc 6 (clear Voice capture) variety. Noise reduction algorithms reduce ambient sound and enhance the voice of the caller.

This headset is equipped with a 500mAH lithium rechargeable battery. According to the manufacturer, operating time ranges between 20 hours when communicating via a smartphone, and 30 hours while listening to music. The battery can be fully charged within 45 minutes via a USB connection.

The kit includes a headset, a 3.5-millimeter auxiliary cable, airplane adaptor, charging cable, guide, and a padded carrying case.

The Manufacturer

Iteknic is trademarked by Shenzhen NearbyExpress Technology Development Company Limited which is a division of the Sunvalley Group.

Sunvalley was founded in 2007 and is the brand owner of RAVPower, VAVA, TaoTronics, Anjou, Sable, and HooToo. This company is headquartered in Shenzhen, China, and has subsidiaries located in San Francisco, Tokyo, Singapore, and Hamburg.

Bluetooth

This headset is Bluetooth 5.0 capable but compatible with earlier versions. It paired with both my computer and MP3 player quickly and without complications. Due to the inclusion of a microphone, the headset can also be used with a smartphone.

The theoretical maximum distance for Bluetooth 5.0 is 240 meters (800 feet). During my tests, however, both my computer and MP3 player were equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 transmitters which, unfortunately, have a much lesser range.

While listening to music transmitted from my computer, the reception of devices of this type generally began to cut in an out as I wander into the kitchen. This is because the signal is obstructed by two outside walls and heavy appliances such as my fridge and stove. Happily, the IK-BH005 proved to be the exception.

Reception did degrade as I entered the front porch which is situated at the far end of the building and, again, separated by a main wall. This distance corresponds with the device’s rated range of 33 feet.

Noise Canceling

There are two types of noise canceling systems utilized in conjunction with headsets. Passive noise reduction involves the use of materials in the ear cushions that deaden outside sounds. This technique is useful; however, the most effective packing materials are very dense, adding extra weight to the device.

The iTeknic IK-BH005 also makes use of Hybrid Active Noise Canceling. When activated, the headset’s microphones monitor outside noises. Then the IK-BH005 creates sound waves that mimic the incoming noise in every respect except one: the headphone’s output is 180 degrees out of phase with the intruding waves.

Normally the microphone monitor is placed either outside the earcup (feedforward ANC) or inside the earcup (feedback ANC). Iteknic utilizes a hybrid system which includes both types of active noise cancelation. This incorporates the benefits of each method while minimizing their disadvantages.

It works great for air flow, fans, and engine noise because these sounds are constant. If the intrusion is sudden or varying, however, compensation will not prove adequate. When I activated the IK-BH005’s ANC system, it negated the sound of my fridge’s compressor as well as that of my furnace’s blower, the robotic vacuum, and the air conditioner in my office. When I ran my dryer, I could not hear the motor, but there was a faint clicking as wet clothing bounced against the inside of the appliance. In this instance, the device’s passive noise reduction also proved useful. Please note that active noise canceling systems are ineffective at muffling human voice. If your husband is singing boisterously in the shower, the IK-BH005 can offer only passive noise reduction. Sadly, it will not be enough.

Test Results

I wore the headset while playing games, listening to music, and watching Netflix. It can also be paired with a Bluetooth-capable smartphone.

Sound quality proved excellent, and I was especially impressed by the bass response and clarity. The older headset also exhibited good frequency response but was not quite so crisp and clear.

While I prefer earbuds because of their light weight, both headsets from iTeknic could be worn for long periods without discomfort. The IK-BH005 is fitted with thicker protein earpads than the older model. These covered my earlobes more completely and provided additional comfort.

During a three-day test period, with the volume level set to 69%, this headset performed well for over 29 hours before requiring a recharge. This represents excellent battery life.

The IK-BH005’s active noise canceling system is the most effective I have tested and, because the foam cushions fully covered my ears, passive noise reduction is also good.

Fit and finish are excellent. I found no problems related to quality control.

About Bluetooth V5.0 Technology

Bluetooth 5.0 is the latest version of the Bluetooth wireless communication standard. It’s commonly used for wireless headphones and other audio hardware, as well as wireless keyboards, mice, and game controllers. Bluetooth is also used for communication between various smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

A new version of the Bluetooth standard means various improvements, but only when used with compatible peripherals. In other words, you won’t see any immediate benefit from upgrading to a phone with Bluetooth 5.0 if all your Bluetooth accessories were designed for an older version of Bluetooth. Bluetooth is backwards compatible, however, so you can continue using your existing Bluetooth 4.2 and older devices with a Bluetooth 5.0 phone. And, when you buy new Bluetooth 5.0-enabled peripherals, they’ll work better thanks to your Bluetooth 5.0 phone.

Bluetooth 5.0 also enables a cool new feature that allows you to play audio on two connected devices at the same time. In other words, you could have two pairs of wireless headphones connected to your phone, and them stream audio to both of them at once, all via standard Bluetooth. Or you could play audio on two different speakers in different rooms. You could even stream two different audio sources to two different audio devices at the same time, so two people could be listening to two different pieces of music, but streaming from the same phone.

Review of the Iteknic Oral Irrigator——From Walter Shillington

Walter Shillington

Walter Shillington writes about products he is familiar with. His articles focus on healthcare, electronics, watches and household items.

According to a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, only 30% of Americans floss daily. That does not surprise me; the few times I’ve crammed one of those thin pieces of fishing line between my teeth, I’d been rewarded with nothing but pain and blood. Since I believe any form of self-inflicted torture to be silly, my attempts to floss were soon abandoned.

But proper dental care is essential. Performed correctly, flossing removes the food particles that stick to teeth, preventing the creation of the bacteria that promotes inflammation and gum disease. Left unchecked, colonies of bacteria (plaque) will harden into tartar, wearing away the gums and bone. This eventually results in tooth loss.

Lately, the health of my teeth has become an issue. A new and fancy sonic toothbrush helped but failed to solve the problem entirely. I decided to try a water flosser. Surely, pulsating water would not hurt near as much as a thin piece of Teflon line?

After checking out several devices, I chose iTeknic’s Oral Irrigator. It appeared to be solidly constructed and was priced at less than half of what I’d paid for my Sonicare toothbrush.

Description

The iTeknic Oral Irrigator is constructed from ABS plastic and weighs 26.6 ounces. It is 5.4 inches wide, 4 inches thick, and slightly less than eight inches tall. This flosser is equipped with a four-foot AC power cord.

Rubber suction cups hold the main unit firmly in place. A front mounted rotary switch turns the flosser on and adjusts water pressure. At the left side, a flexible one-meter hose is connected. It leads to a handheld irrigation tool.

The irrigation tool is fitted with a button which allows quick insertion of the various tips. Water flow can be controlled using a sliding on/off switch.

A 600-milliliter water tank sits directly above the main unit. The tank’s cover consists of a clamshell type storage box containing a variety of spare tips.

Seven water jet tips are included with this system.

Flossing Methods

Those that floss generally use either a thin string or a device much like iTeknic’s Oral Irrigator.

String floss is cheap and can be used practically everywhere. In this process dental floss is inserted between each tooth, gently scraping up and down its surfaces. This removes plaque and food particles from the teeth and out from under the gums. If performed correctly, string flossing is very effective.

Water flossers are not particularly expensive but, because they require electricity and water, are less convenient than string floss. These devices generate pulsating streams of water which massage the gums and push food debris away from teeth. Water flossers tend to be less abusive to the gums than traditional string floss. Also, pulsating water streams can reach areas—especially for those with braces—that dental floss cannot.

Test Procedure

I filled the tank with lukewarm water, plugged in the Oral Irrigator, and inserted a classic jet tip into the irrigation tool. Then I shoved the jet into my mouth and turned the device on.

At this point, I rotated the variable switch to the number two position. The pump rumbled quietly for a moment and then stopped. After I turned on the irrigation tool, a weak stream of water bathed my teeth.

As I continued to rotate the variable switch clockwise, both the water pressure and frequency of pulses rose. At position six, the water stream was comfortable and strong enough to wash away most of the debris stuck between my teeth.

At position eight, the pressure against my gums was no longer quite so comfortable. The pulsating stream of water, however, did a great job of clearing my teeth of debris.

By the time I’d reached position ten on the dial, the pump was on continuously, and both pulse rate and pressure were very high. I found this setting uncomfortable and decide to return to the eight position. For me, this represented the best compromise between efficiency and comfort.

Points to Consider

I initially thought the four-foot power cord to be a bit short. During my tests, however, the length proved to be adequate.

Build quality is excellent, and I expect that both the machine and its accessories will provide yeoman service for several years.

The classic jet tips and tongue cleaner were very effective. I did not use the three specialized tips.

The rotary dial ensures every user can select the most suitable pulse rate/pressure.

To ensure cleanliness, I recommend running a little vinegar through this system once every month.
