Phaiser is the underdogs of the headphone industry.
They are in a big bad world competing with the likes of Sennheiser, Sony, and Bose. Phaiser is a small company in comparison to those audio giants (but that’s not stopping them from putting a spanner or two in the works).
Phaiser has cleverly decided to try and slice off a section of the high-quality sports headphones market. While many of the big brands have products in this niche, they are surprisingly vulnerable to smaller companies (like Phaiser) making great products at a much lower price point.
5 of Phaiser’s most popular products are the BHS-750, BHS-760, BHS 730 and BHS 930. We get a lot of emails asking us to clear up the differences between these two pairs of headphones (because they basically look identical on paper).
Today we have finally found the time to an in-depth comparison review of the Phaiser BHS-750 vs the Phaiser BHS-760…
But if you are looking for the best in ear monitors for drummers you should have understood that having a high-quality standard of earbuds is not enough.
One of the things that Phaiser has really got going for them is the audio quality of their products. We’re not going to sit here and tell you that they have the same kind of clarity and depth as a pair of $300 Sennheiser headphones (because they don’t). But considering the price point, the 750 and the 760 are sold at – they are a bargain.
Both products have 8mm dynamic drivers powering the speakers inside each earpiece which allows for exceptional volume. The frequency response is respectable and the high notes are crisp and clear without sounding tinny. Similarly, the bass tones are full and warm but can struggle with super low frequencies (like all earbud headphones under $500).
Audio Quality Winner: “Draw”
Both the 750 and the 760 have identical internal components. They are literally the same headphones in terms of audio output. This round is a draw.
On the outside, both these headphones are almost identical. They both sport the modern “in ear” earbud design (which can take a little getting used to if you’re not familiar with it). The 760 is only available in a classic black color, which will suit most people just fine. But if you like a little bit of variety in your life then the 750 may be a better option as it is available in pink, black, yellow, blue, and red variations.
Phaiser has said that one of the “main differences” between the 750 and the 760 is that the ergonomics of the ear piece have been improved slightly. We spent a long time looking and testing this claim and can’t really seem to see any difference. We don’t know what they changed, but whatever it is, it’s not important. Both seem to fit our ears perfectly.
Appearance Winner: “BHS-750”
Despite Phaiser saying the 760 has better ergonomics than the 750, we have called this round in favor of the 750. We really have no idea what improvements Phaiser have made to the 760, it seems no better than the 750. When you combine this with the color options the 750 provides, we had to marginally call this round in the 750’s favor.
As these are Bluetooth headphones, battery life is one of the most important factors that need to be taken into account. Without the charge, Bluetooth headphones are nothing more than a good-looking accessory.
Phaiser has been in the headphone game for some time now just like the turtle beach gaming headsets, and they always seem to put a huge amount of effort into ensuring all of their products have an excellent battery life.
The 750 has a large durable battery capable of holding a very respectable amount of power. On a full charge, you can expect to be able to listen to music or make a hands-free call for around 5 hours (with over 250 hours of standby time).
However, the biggest improvement the 760 has over the 750 is that it has a more advanced battery that is capable of holding more charge (despite being the same physical size). It has an extra hour of playback time and an extra 25 hours standby time.
Battery Life Winner: “BHS-760”
The 760 is the clear winner in this section with its extra hour of battery life (and extra 25 hours standby time). It’s not exactly a game-changing difference, but we are sure that the extra hour of battery life will come in handy.
As these headphones are aimed at the running market, they need to be somewhat waterproof. If you’re running hard, you’re going to get sweaty, and believe it or not this sweat can damage traditional headphones. Both the 750 and the 760 are certified “Sweatproof”.
It’s important to note that the 750 and the 760 are not certified as waterproof. They are said to have a “liquipel nano-coating” (whatever that means) which repels the sweat. We suggest you use common sense here, you can run with them (maybe even in the rain) but don’t wear them in the shower.
Waterproofing Verdict: “Draw”
Both of these headphones are more than capable of withstanding your sweatiest moments with ease. There is no noticeable difference and therefore this round is a draw.
Our research for this article led us to a reasonably surprising (or unsurprising) conclusion. These headphones are almost exactly the same.
We found evidence stating that Phaiser had told a customer who inquired about the difference that the 760 was nothing more than the new version of the 750 with slightly better ergonomics and a better battery.
As both the 750 and the 760 are priced reasonably similarly, and the only (real) difference is the battery life – our recommendation is the BHS-760.
The extra battery life is more than worth the extra few dollars in our opinion. This is especially true when you consider what it’s going to be like when you have owned the headphones for a while and the battery starts to lose some capacity (like all lithium batteries inevitably do).
5 hours playback time dropping to 3 hours after a few years is going to be much more annoying than 6 hours playback time dropping to 4 hours.
Save yourself a future headache and just get the better product now instead.
