The MINIX NT-II are wireless Bluetooth headphones that feature NFC. MINIX, typically known for their high quality mini PCs, are following up the popular and well-received MINIX NT-I with a new foldable design that’s well-suited for those on the go and 3.5mm audio for greater flexibility.

The MINIX NT-II can be used both wirelessly via its Bluetooth connection or via a 3.5mm audio jack. Having NFC support should make it a breeze to pair it with compatible devices.
The marketing material also mentions “Multi-link technology”, claiming you can connect two devices at once. This is great for someone who uses moves between their phone and laptop for example.
According to the specs, the internal 320mAH battery should be good for around 10 hours of music playback or 11 hours of talk time via the built-in microphone. Micro USB charging should make it easy to keep it topped up.
The older MINIX NT-I was well received by a number of reviewers, thanks to excellent build quality and respectable sound quality. Given MINIX tend to improve their products over time, I’m hoping that they can repeat their success with the NT-II
