I am really impressed with the design of these headphones, while a lot of wireless in-ear headphones have each earpiece connected via a cable that runs directly around the back of the neck, these ones have a stiffer but slightly flexible body that consists of a plastic tubing running around the cable, this means there is no cable slack around the back, which could cause discomfort or just be a real annoyance when using the headphones.
Each earpiece has a slightly angled tip, that helps to maintain steadiness and comfort during long usage periods. I always find that headphones with slightly angled tips tend to stay in my ears a lot easier and these have been no different for me, they have managed to stay in for me, even in the toughest of workouts.Sitting at the back of the headphones in between both the left and right plastic cable tubing is a long and curved rectangular shaped box that houses the battery and other components that make the headphones work, such as the buttons, the MicroUSB port and Bluetooth receiver. The buttons on this box are a bit stiff and do take some pressure to operate properly. there’s also a button for the Play/Pause option located on the left earpiece.
These headphones also have an IPX8 rating which is one down from the highest liquid ingress protection rating of 9K. This means that these headphones are capable of being used continuously in up to 3.3ft of water. I decided to test this out for myself, now I must say I have never done this before and wasn’t sure what to expect. Anyway I filled a small bowl up with some water and decided to give the headphones a dip in the bowl, I pulled them out and suddenly the music wasn’t playing, I turned them off and I instantly thought I’d broken them, but a quick push of the power button to turn them back on and they were instantly working. I’ve no idea why they lost connection, maybe it was because my phone wasn’t too close at the time, I don’t know, but what I do know is they are still working now.
Connecting these headphones to be my phone via Bluetooth was an easy task as is it with many Bluetooth devices these days. if you struggle or have never done this before, the included manual has some easy to read and illustrated instructions on how to do it.
In terms of signal quality and stability, I did experience a few drop-outs if I went a bit of distance away from my phone, usually I am able to get a stable enough connection with other wireless headphones, that allows me to enter another room on the same level with no loss of audio or drop-outs, however if I remained close to the headphones, such as in the same room, the signal was perfect and remained stable throughout use.
The battery life between each cycle is written down as lasting up to 6 hours, with a full charge taking roughly about 2 hours. As usual ‘up to’ means depending on factors such as volume and listening environment. At their loudest on a continuous play through, I got roughly over 4 hours of use and on their lowest volume setting, I succeeded getting roughly about 6 hours from the battery.
The audio produced by these is as expected for their price. It’s clear, crisp and distortion free at higher volumes. I found the bass varies as expected depending on the music being listened to but overall it’s set at a reasonable level for comfortable, none-blast your head off listening. I’ve also noticed with these headphones, lyrics and notes I don’t always notice on earphones, I’m not sure why, but I’ve had a few pairs of headphones now, where I hear things that other headphones don’t seem to pickup.
The inbuilt microphone is fantastic and does a great job of picking up my voice and presenting it to whoever is on the other side of the phone.
These headphones come with a neat carry case that is rectangular shaped and is able to hold the headphones, a USB cable for charging and extra ear tips. The case is tough and although it’s slightly big, it fits nicely into a large jacket pocket of a bag, for times when the headphones aren’t in use.
A great set of headphones for sporting activities. The fact they have an IPX8 rating makes them so much better for outdoors activities, as they are protected from the rain or snow that may occur. I love their design, which sort of breaks away from the free cabled design of other Bluetooth in-ear headphones.
Please Note: I received these for free in return for my honest and unbiased review.
