Review: Rocketfish Mobile Solace RF-JJX15

Retail Package

RF-JJX15 Retail Box

Rocketfish Mobile Solace RF-JJX15 headphone comes in a rectangular retail box with a transparent top half made with plastic, where the earpieces can be seen, and a black opaque bottom made with paper. The retail box looks so stunning. It is definitely one of the best retail boxes I have seen for a headset. The box includes the headphone itself, 3 sets of Comply Foam Tips (Small, Medium, Large), a 3.5mm adapter for extended compatibility, a carry pouch and the quick setup guide.

Design and Build Quality

RF-JJX15 Headphone

At first glance, Rocketfish Mobile Solace RF-JJX15 headphone’s earpieces are cool and the overall headset too. However, the bulky center piece reduces the style-ability of the overall headset. During usage, it become quite a nuisance. However, this center piece is the center of functionality. It contains the battery, ANC on/off switch, the call answer/end button, a red/green LED and the micro USB charging slot. The build quality of the headset is quite solid but after repeated use some weak points like near the connection near mic-piece, emerge. Overall, RF-JJX15 is a handsome little guy with reliable build quality.

Sound

Rocketfish Mobile Solace RF-JJX15 headphone gives a superb sound for its price tag. The bass is also reasonable, considering my ego for better bass in headphones. When ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) is turned on, it cuts off a considerable amount of background noise. ANC is ideal for public places, crowded places, etc… It is also suitable for boats, planes, etc… as well, but may not be as effective as you expect. The built-in battery has juice for about 30 hours on a 2 hour full charge, which is very impressive. If you run out of battery, you can always turn off ANC and use the RF-JJX15 as a normal headphone.

Final Word

Rocketfish Mobile Solace RF-JJX15 headphone is my first ANC headset and I might be rating it higher than usual. Nevertheless, it is a reliable headset, looks cool, has a good build quality with excellent sound and makes up for it’s price tag. You should definitely take pride in owning one.
