The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth are decent-sounding, stable headphones. They won't fall off your head even while running or working out and they're relatively quiet to the people around you because of their low leakage. Unfortunately, they're uncomfortably tight and poorly block ambient noise with their weak active noise cancellation. They also have an inconsistent and poor battery performance which may be a deal breaker for most.
- Stable, wireless design.
- Minimal leakage.
- Poor noise isolation.
- Uncomfortable clamping pressure.

The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth are sleek, stylish on-ear headphones that have the same design as the Bohm B-66. They're sufficiently stable to not slip off your head during mild physical activity and offer a decent control scheme that's efficient, once you are used to the controls. Unfortunately, they are not comfortable headphones. They feel too tight and will cause soreness and discomfort on larger heads very quickly.
The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth headphones look very similar to the Bohm B-66. They have the same design and circular ear cups as well as the same black and silver color scheme. The subtle difference between the two headphones is only with the brand logo on the back of the ear cups. They look stylish and are sleek enough to be eye catching in public but are hard to distinguish from The B-66 at a distance.
The Diskin wireless Bluetooth, like the Bohm b-66, are not comfortable headphones. They apply too much pressure on the ears, to maintain their stable fit but gets uncomfortable quickly and can cause soreness during long listening sessions. The padding on the headband and ear cups are decent, but these headphones feel too tight and are even more, uncomfortable for larger heads.
Button layout and functionality are above average for these headphones. The buttons deliver a good tactile feedback, call/music, track-skipping, and volume controls. However, the buttons often have dual functionalities that are not intuitive and may take some time to get used to.
These headphones like the Bohm B-66, are quite stable on the head. They apply a lot of pressure on the ears, which prevents them from slipping off even during mild physical activities. They have no problem maintaining a stable fit during casual listening sessions and have a wireless design, free of cables that can get hooked on something and pull the headphones off your head.
The Diskin like the Bohm B-66 are mid-sized on-ear headphones that do not take up much space in a backpack or handbag. The earcups also lay flat for easier storage and transportation. Unfortunately, they do not fold up into a compact format, which means they won't fit in a pocket, even larger jacket pockets. They also do not come with a case which is dissapointing.
Build quality is decent and robust enough to handle a few drops without damage. However, although the build looks metallic, it's not metal and will not be as durable as some other headphones that use metal to reinforce the headband. This means they could get damaged under moderate physical stress, and the swivel hinge is weak and a little loose.
The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth, like the Bohm B-66, are an average sounding pair of on-ear closed-back headphones. They have a very good, consistent, and extended Bass, a good Mid Range and a decent Treble. However, their Bass could be slightly muddy, and their Mid Range is a bit forward sounding. Additionally, they have a mediocre distortion performance and like most closed-back on-ear headphones, a poor Soundstage.
These headphones poorly isolate listeners in loud environments. Their active noise cancelling is weak and not able to handle the level ambient noise of a busy office or a daily commute. Luckily, they don't leak much sound and won't be distracting to the people around you even at higher volumes.
Poor isolation. The passive isolation provided by the ear cups is decent. It starts to kick-in at around 600Hz, and reaches its peak isolation of 32dB at 4KHz. The active noise cancellation performs poorly and is effective only between 40Hz and 400Hz, providing a maximum cancellation of 10dB. There may also be some audible low-end rumble produced by the noise cancelling system.
Good leakage results. The overall amount of leakage is low. However, the majority of the leakage is happening in the mid-range between 400Hz-800Hz, which could make the leakage a little more noticeable.

The Diskin have a good wireless range and low latency considering they don't support aptX or aptX(LL). They won't be the ideal headphones to watch movies or play video games with, but for music streaming, you shouldn't have any issues. Unfortunately, the battery performance is disappointing. They can continuously play audio for a fair amount of time but take absurdly long to charge. They also don't have any power saving features.
The Diskin Wireless Bluetooth Headphones like the similarly designed Bohm B-66 have a surprisingly great wireless range. In direct line of sight, they will continue playing up to 200 ft. This great if your Bluetooth source is difficult or bothersome to carry around, but practically, the indoors obstructed range would be more relevant for most listeners. Unfortunately, they're not the simplest to pair. They don't have NFC and the press and hold pairing procedure can get a bit tedious if you have to switch between multiple Bluetooth sources.
The Diskin like the B-66 have a poor battery performance. They take long to charge, and can't stream audio at the same time. This coupled with the lack of an auto-off feature, makes them not ideal for prolonged use.
