I think the design of the Care 1 headphones is superb. The black version with silver trim has an excellent balance of shape and form. The alternate grey version is also very appealing but the combination of both silver and gold accents isn’t quite right in my opinion.
Considering how reasonably priced the DOQAUS Care 1’s are, the sound quality is very good. The ability to select from three different EQ modes is a neat feature. You’ve got normal, bass and HD modes. Normal mode is for equally balanced high, mid and lows. Bass mode gives you an extra punchy boost in the low frequencies and high definition mode increases the highs and mids whilst reduces the bass for better clarity. This HD mode is ideal when watching films or listening to dialogue.
The DOQAUS Care 1 headphones are surprisingly comfortable. The inside of the headband is well padded and the headphones feel very light on your head, weighing just 250g. The headband can extend and ear cups twist to fit most head shapes.
The build quality feels very reasonable for the price. They don’t feel flimsy or fragile. I’m not sure about long-term resilience but as with all headphones the better you look after them the longer they’ll last.
The buttons around the ear cups may take a while to get used to with the sliding on/off button. You have to slide and hold to turn on until you hear a lady say “hi” in ear. 🙂
You’ll also never put these headphones on the wrong way as there are large L and R letters written on the inside of the cups.
Q: Is there a power saving mode?
A: Yes, if no sound is playing or no device is connected for 5 minutes then the headphones will automatically switch off.
Q: Can I wear them for multiple hours comfortably?
A: Yes. I found the headphones very comfortable.
Q: Are they waterproof?
A: They are not advertised as being waterproof, but that doesn’t mean they won’t survive some light rain every now and then. I wouldn’t recommend swimming or showering with them. 🙂
Q: What is the range of the wireless connection?
A: These headphones can stay connected for up to 10 metres (33 feet).
Q: How long is the audio cable?
A: It’s a 1 metre long 3.5mm to 3.5mm standard audio jack cable.
Q: Can I use them whilst charging the battery?

The DOQAUS Care 1 headphones are available in black and grey.
If you’re looking for an alternative to the DOQAUS Care 1 then I’d recommend taking a look at the RIWBOX XBT-80 headphones. They’re a wireless over-the-ear folding headphone design in a range of funky colour combinations. And for the price, they’re exceptional value for money.
