Look and feel
The case as well as the earphones feel pretty premium for their price. It has that nice clean white finish, the kind you expect from the likes of Huawei/Honor, or may we even dare say, Apple!
In terms of fitting, the default ear tips worked quite well for me, and I was able to have them in my ears for hours on end. I was able to cycle, walk, run, and had no fear of them dropping out.
The case itself is pretty compact, and can be charged via the supplied USB-C cable.
The setup is reasonably simple, like most Bluetooth earphones. To start with, you just pop them in the case, give them a few seconds, take them out and they go in to pairing mode.
From there, all you need to do is go to your phone/device’s Bluetooth settings and pair.
If you want to repair, all you need to do is wait for them to not be connected to the first device, and they will go into pairing mode. An LED on the earbuds lets you know when they enter that mode.
Touch Controls and Ease of Use
Interestingly, instead of using voices that tell you whether you’re pairing or connected, Honor have gone for jingles. It takes a little getting used to, but after a little while you do know what each of those means. Intuitive, and it works.
In terms of controlling them, all you need to do is pop them in your ears after pairing, and you’re good to go. Like all other such devices, you have full control over them using your phone.
However, the Touch Controls work better than many others I have tried. Generally I have found that they are annoying at best. In fact, some of them are so susceptible to sweat, that I will often avoid wearing them if I am doing any exercise. In this case, you need to do a double click, or hold for 2 seconds as a minimum to get any action out of them. This means that it only works when you want it to work.
There is bit of a knack to the double click, but it works reasonably well.
You can pause/play, accept/reject calls, and go forward/backward in tracks using them.
The connectivity for these has been absolutely flawless. Both of them work well together, or individually.
The sound on these is pretty good. They go reasonably loud, but not deafening loud, which is probably the loudest you want. Unlike many other manufacturers, the sound isn’t bass heavy, and instead, it is truer to what you want and expect. Having said that, while the sound is warm, sometimes the frequency response seems to lack a bit of oomph.
The noise cancelling in this case definitely takes the edge off when it comes to background noise, so they give you a more comfortable experience if you are commuting, or like me right now, sitting with a lot of fans running about you. However, they do not offer the kind of isolation and silence one expects from the bigger Noise Cancelling headphones.
