Outdoor Technology just made music on-the-go a little bit easier with the wireless DJ Slims. Utilizing the Bluetooth technology widely available in our everyday electronics, these headphones deliver great sound while allowing you to go about your business, happily untethered.

Right out of the box you’ll notice the clean styling of the headphones and in a little under three hours they’re fully charged. Follow the simple instructions to pair them with your device of choice and next thing you know—you’re jamming. But that’s only half of it. To take full advantage of these you’ll want to pair them with a smartphone and utilize the built-in mic for phone calls. We tested them here at the office by sending our trusty intern out to get coffee. He thought he’d be simply bumping tunes the entire way, but he’d soon discover that we had in fact planned to call his cell—which, to be clear, was left behind in the office—to assault him with further coffee ordering instructions. He made it about halfway down the block before the onslaught of ludacris demands began to fade. While we promise not to call and ridicule you, you can be sure that you’re free to roam without having to worry about keeping your phone at your side.

The earpieces are retractable, with four buttons on the right side allowing you to adjust volume up or down, and skip forward or back so you can listen to Carly Rae Jepsen’s "Call Me Maybe" one more time.

All-in-all the DJ Slims are a solid offering with modern style meeting modern technology at an affordable price. They are available in white, black or blue and you can purchase them directly from Outdoor Technology for $69.95.
