Look and feel
Okay, so it promises an immense battery life, but the case is definitely on the bigger side when it comes to wireless earbuds that I have tried.
Another thing that takes you by surprise is that in the case, the earphones are placed the wrong way. Sound confusing? Sorry, let me explain. The one that is on the right side in the case, goes in your left ear, and vice versa. This definitely took a little getting used to.
The earphones themselves are beautifully textured and have a nice finish. They are very light, and sit well in your ears, and can do so for long periods of time.
While popping them in feels a little bit of a fiddle, once in, they definitely stay in. The over-the-ear fit means there is never any fear of them popping out, no matter how hard you (or at least me in this case) run or jump.
This can be used via buttonless taps. I am not a huge fan of those, as you need to add up taps, but it worked reasonably well. E.g. 3 taps on one side will give you noise cancelling mode, 3 taps on the other, will give you transparency mode, and so on and so forth.
Less taps can be used to play/pause, answer calls, and such like.
You also have the ability to use the app to configure these, as well as equaliser settings.
I found the sound quality for these to be okay, but very bass heavy. There wasn’t as much detail in certain songs and sounds, but that could be the bass interfering with it. This means that certain songs do sound good, and your usual heavy beat exercising and running songs will be fine, but you might not enjoy anything delicate from these.
You can play with the sound settings a bit, but generally the observations above remain the same.
The noise cancelling works well enough, though not super intensely, which is fine for such a budget option. Transparency mode is a nice touch, but once again, not the best you’ll find out there.
The ability to get up to 65 hours is immense from these. You do pay by having to carry a much bigger c
