Package Content & Design
There are Nia X3 headphones, micro USB cable and user manual in the package. That’s it. No 3.5mm AUX cable there. No a big deal as I don’t use cable on my Bluetooth headphones anyway. Build quality is decent. And it is light and compact in size. The smallest Bluetooth headphones that I own so far. The headband height is adjustable and cushioned. The on-ear cups are tilt able. All the controls are located on the right ear cup. Yup, the multi-purpose button, volume control, play/pause, micro USB port, mic, AUX in/put, micro SD slot and LED light indicator are there. And lot of colours to choose – black, blue, gray, pink, white and yellow. Do refer to all the pictures for more details.

Fit, Comfort & Isolation
Nia X3 is comfort to wear thanks to light weight. The soft pads help too. And fit and hold well. Isolation is okay as an on-ear headphones. As usual, you still can hear some of the environment noises which is perfectly normal for on-ear headphones.

Performance Result
Hmm… GranVela Nia X3 exceeds 10m Bluetooth range in straight sight line test. However, it manages to get up to around 5m with obstacles like wall only. Pairing is simple and fast. Work on all my devices. And 3.5mm audio jack is there for non-Bluetooth device (but you need to find your own cable). Battery life is okay only. It managed to play around 6 hours non-stop music. As usual, this is on average sound volume level test. Louder == shorter. Hmm… it did not meet the 8-hour Bluetooth playback claim here. As for charging, it took around 2 hours to fully charge. And the red charging LED indicator keep light up even it was fully charged (my USB volt meter did not detect any voltage intake already). Bug? Phone call quality is great by the way. Others can hear my voice loud and clear. And the other way round too.

AUX, power switch & mic

FM radio reception is good. And it supports automatic tuning and storing (ATS) – from 88 to 108MHz. Yup, all radio stations available around you will be saved. Furthermore, you can use it as MP3 player by plugged in micro SD card. Based on specs, it can play MP3, WAV, WMA, FLAC and APE. Seriously? I put a FLAC format song to try. Wow, it really able to play. No bad at all. The last feature – Bluetooth receiver. You can output song through the AUX port to another headphones or speaker. And this make Nia X3 as a Bluetooth receiver as well. Really a featured-packed headphones indeed. Lastly, the sound quality is good at this price point.
