Robbi Nespu: Linux Fedora 28 and Avantree ANC032 wireless headphone

I just bought a headphone from Shopee (use referal code RYUUN222 to register and get discount!) website. I planned to buy one since last year but keep pending and now it suitable time to grab what I want.

The original plan is to buy Sony WH-1000XM2. I still remember on Jan 2018, I come back from Hong Kong to Singapore (I arrived at Changi Airport). I want to paid Sony WH-1000XM2 from the store inside the airport but my CC is limit per day, so I need to cancel my purchase :’(

I looking some decent and more cheaper headphone. I looking an wireless over ear head phone with noise cancelling featured.

My personal laptop have built-in bluetooth adapter and audio jack port are broken.. so wireless is my solution.

Why I looking headphone with noise cancelling feature? Currently, I worked as software developer of warehouse conveyor system, so during comisioning I will be on-site and the noise from conveyor and other machine inside warehouse are very annoying and disturbing when you need to focus doing stuff.

Seem Avantree just released new product, a wireless headphone with noice canceling feature and the price is much cheaper than other brands.

I am using Fedora 28 with kernel 4.18 as my workstation and it worked great with Avantree ANC032 wireless headphone.

Avantree ANC032 wireless headphone worked well with linux.

Honestly, the sound ouput are good but noise canceling are not able to block all sound frequency from outside but it still work and nice.

The body look fragile, so I need to careful flip and store. It might be not suitable for rugged activity. Plus it does’t comes with 3.5 mm airplane airline jack.

I give 7/10 scores for this headphone. Overall I am satisfied 🙂
