So, it seems when Sentey makes a product that hits, it hits a home run. But sometimes, it’s just a foul ball over the left field fence. Not quite a homerun but a solid hit none the less. This is one of those. You’ll recall from my last Sentey Flow headset review, the sound was nothing to write home about. These B-Trek Bluetooth headphones fix that in spades. The sound is pretty good. The 40mm drivers have even tones, decent bass, and don’t sound tinny or blown out. Wired or wireless, the sound is quality. These are Bluetooth V4.0 compatible, and have been tested to work solidly with my laptop, hubby’s Nexus tablet, and our phone. It holds the connection well too. Where it falls short, again, is in the “gaming” category.

See, the last thing I want to hear is the carnage and destruction inherent to one of hubby’s Battlefield 4 multiplayer sessions. Especially while I’m painting my nails. And we thought this headset would be the solution. But, despite pairing with the Playstaion 3 with ease, try as we might we could not get sound through these headphones to save our lives from the unit. Not for the game, for Amazon Prime videos, for music…nothing. Just static and ticking. It was a huge let down. We have an email in to Sentey about this, but as of this writing we have yet to hear back*. If you want a decent set of bluetooth headphones that won’t break the bank, these fit the bill. If you want it for PS3 (or PS4, one assumes) gaming, you might want to look elsewhere.

I don’t feel the lack of PS3 support should be a dealbreaker. The sound is good, they seem well constructed and of better materials than the Sentey Flow headset I mentioned previously. They also fold up for travel, come with a spiffy hard-ish travel case that holds the headset, the charging cable and the 3.5mm wired connection. The wired connection also works without having the lithium polymer battery charged (Sentey reports battery life of over 8 hours!), so your tunes aren’t dependent on your battery either. You have play, pause, skip and volume controls on the headset as well (device support dependent, obviously), which is nice. They fit my head, and even hubby’s big ‘ol pumpkin head, so they should fit just about everyone nicely. The ear cushion cups are snug enough for workouts or light jogging, but know that prolonged listening during these activities might cause some trapped perspiration, but the upside is there’s very little sound bleed from the earpieces. They were comfortable to wear and not so heavy that you feel like your head weighs an extra 10lbs. Overall we’re fans of these Sentey B-Trek Bluetooth Headphones, but there’s definitely room for some improvement here.

*A quick note: I attempted on 2 separate occasions to get some support from Sentey about the PS3/Bluetooth issue. Both went unaswered. I’m dismayed that, knowing this product was sent as promotion and knowing that I would review it, and their after-sales support, they ignored me. Maybe they’d be better about product support with a paying customer, but I’ll leave my readers to draw their own conclusions here. Major disappointment for us, though.

Sentey LS-2214 30w 4-Port USB High Speed Wall Charger

The hits just keep on coming here with Sentey. I’m a fan of yet another of their products, and once again it’s a product you smack yourself on the side of the head and say “Why, oh why, did I not have one of these before?!”. This time, it’s a 4-Port USB wall charger. It’s happened to you. Trying to squeeze a bunch of little proprietary charging cubes into one wall socket. Who gets priority? His phone? Her phone? The tablet? The camera? Can I get just enough juice to make this one text, this one call, this one email, take one pic??? Madness, says I.

Now you can stop the madness and just plug your stuff in. All your stuff. All their stuff. And no one gets left in the cold, juiceless. Sentey has even put variable outputs into the plugs, with two 5V/2A USB outlets and two 5v/1A USB outlets. All four are high speed charging ports, not trickle chargers. It has a blue LED light to let you know it’s getting power, and comes with built-in overvoltage, over current and short circuit protections. And it automatically stops charging when the device is full, so there’s no overcharging concerns!

Now I see you sitting there and wondering “Yeah, but how much do they want for this little miracle device?”. Less than $10 will bring peace to your household. For $9.99 you never have to play favorites with your family’s devices again. You even get a cool little microfiber pouch to take it with you on the go if the need arises! At under 9 ounces, I doubt you’d even know you were carrying it! If I had one complaint, it would be with orientation of the wall plug and the ports. I solved this issue with an angled triple tap, but out of the box it’s not going to be an unobtrusive device because of it’s distance from the wall. But that is a very minor gripe from a picky gal who doesn’t want things sticking 4+ inches off the wall. It more than makes up for that with clearing up the rat’s nest of little cubes and wires I had running everywhere. I may even pick up a couple more for other rooms in the house, or even for friends and family. This one is a must-buy.
