Flashlights are great, I’ve got a few good ones that have come in very handy in many situations, but sometimes you need your hands free and that’s where a decent headlamp style light comes into play.
Today for review I’ve got the Aennon Multi-Function LED Headlamp For Handsfree Lighting and it costs about $15 on Amazon right now. I’ve had other headlamps and I’ve used them for many projects but they weren’t the best and even though this one is inexpensive, it’s much nicer than the others I’ve owned. This headlamp features three levels of brightness with eight LEDs for up to 30 lumens of power but it also has a red LED which can be used in various situations where white just isn’t the best.

The packaging is just a a plain white box with a label stuck to it, nothing fancy, but then it doesn’t need to be either.
Inside of the box you won’t find much, no instructions but then again I don’t think you really need any. They did include three AAA batteries which you’ll need to power the headlamp.
The headlamp is basically one piece. What I mean by that is that the straps are attached to the headlamp and the reason I mention that is that the one I was using before I got this had straps that came off the lamp part and I found it very annoying as they seem to slip off all the time. I should note the straps themselves are a very soft and elastic material and both the top and side straps are adjustable for comfort and to fit your head properly. The straps do adjust quite a bit so you can use this headlamp while wearing a helmet or hat.
The headlamp has ten LEDs in it. For low, two of them light up, for med, four will light up and then for high, eight will light up. The two remaining LEDs are red in color making the total ten of course. The levels are 10, 20 and 30 lumens for the white LED levels of low, med and high respectively.
On the top is a small black button used for power and for cycling the LED levels. It’s rubberized and seems sealed actually to keep the elements out. To turn it on you just press the button and the light comes on the low setting and then you just push the button again to change the brightness to cycle though the LEDs and to turn it off.
This headlamp uses three AAA batteries which they actually included as I mentioned already. The battery compartment is on the side and accessed with a fingernail or coin or even a screwdriver, you just turn and pull the battery case out. The three batteries go into the case and then the case goes back into the headlamp itself. The battery case is keyed so it only fits in one way when you turn and lock it into the lamp. The batteries should last for up to 16 hours on low power.
One of the great features about this lamp is that it locks very securely into place at whatever angle you adjust it to. The lamp has what I guess you would call a gear system as it were where it click and locks into place as you tilt the lamp up or down and it will stay where up put it.
Behind the lamp, the part that touches you forward, is where you’ll find a soft and kind of thick foam padding, about an 1/8 of an inch, making it comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Here’s a couple pictures of the Aennon lamp with my old one for for comparison. My old lamp didn’t have all those LEDs in it nor the multiple level settings either and it really wasn’t comfortable at all.
This light came in handy for me quite a bit. My boys are in Scouts so we do go camping and I took it with us on the latest trip and found it very handy for unpacking and just generally when I needed light but needed my hands as well.
I’ve used this lamp plenty of times around the house as well for various things from working on my computer, to fixind things around the house and even for sewing. Yes I sew, my wife really doesn’t so I have to most of it for the kids stuff…
The LEDs are very bright and it’s nice to have adjustable levels.
You might wonder why there’s a set of red LEDs in there, well they can be used for many things, but specifically when you want to preserve you night vision but yet still need to see. Red LEDs are also great for seeing but yet not disturbing other people. Checking on your kids at night for example, a bright white light will disturb most people, but the red shouldn’t.
Summary and Comments:
Flashlights and headlamps are exactly exciting but they do have a place and are very useful and it’s hard to find a good that’s also inexpensive. This headlamp is both of those things, it’s quality made and it’s inexpensive coming in at about $15.
The straps are very soft making them very comfortable, I was actually surprised by the straps and just how soft they are. The padding inside of the headlamp is soft as well so you really don’t even feel it on your bare forehead honestly.
The headlamp is very easy to use, just push button to turn it on and push again to adjust the levels of brightness.
All in all I think this is a just a great headlamp and I can highly recommend it, especially for the price right now. I don’t think you’re going find another headlamp this nice for this price really.
+Various levels of brightness
