Origem HS-3 with HDR Earphones REVIEW

I’m a fan of headphones. I really love to listen to music during every part of my day but I don’t like to inconvenience anyone around me so I end up using some form of headphones. I’ve become a huge fan of wireless headphones in the past few years and there are many different styles so I try out as many as I can. The HS-3 with HDR earphones are a brand new release from Origem.



  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • Transmission Distance: 33ft/10 meters
  • Rechargeable lithium polymer battery 3.7V
  • Frequency response: 20 Hz — 20 kHz
  • Work time: approximately 6 hours
  • Charges with Micro USB
  • In the box: earphones, ear tips with three size options, carrying case, USB charging case, user manual


The in-line controls are pretty standard. There is a multipurpose button and volume up/down buttons. The Micro USB port is also located on the in-line controls and is hidden behind a small silicone cover. The controls are very tactile in nature and easy to use even when you can’t see them. I actually prefer these types of controls instead of touch-touch-sensitive controls that are popular with earbuds these days.

I have to admit that earbuds rarely impress me. They don’t typically have a comfortable fit for me and even when they do, the sound quality just isn’t what I want it to be. The HS-3 earphones are awesome and definitely pass the test for me. I placed the earbuds in my ear and wrapped the ear hook around the back of my ear. The headphones stayed securely in place and they were comfortable for a long period of time. A lot of times, earbuds will form a vacuum-type seal that just becomes unbearable for me to wear. Since the HS-3 earphones have the ear hooks, the headphones are held in place without having that horrible vacuum feeling included. I’ve been very happy with these headphones since I started wearing them.

The sound quality is comparable to what I experience with an over-the-ear headphone. There is solid bass and rich depth to music and spoken word audio tracks. I continue to be impressed with the quality of the sound that the headphones put out. Again, since I haven’t had good success with earbuds, I wasn’t expecting much and the HS-3 earphones just blew away my low expectations. These are honestly going to be the ‘standard’ by which I judge other earbuds.
