There were a few things I didn’t like and plenty I did.
The instruction booklet wasn’t impressive. I am assuming since these are from China, the instructions were probably written in Chinese and translated to English.
Along with typos, they were a bit baffling. There are some graphics to show you what the buttons do and where everything else.
However, anyone who has spent any time around Bluetooth devices and wireless headphones will figure out how to use these as the functions are pretty standard.
Even without instructions, pairing was accomplished in seconds.
For those who rely on Siri and Google, a one-touch multi-button feature lets you access these easily.
Another plus is that for those who are active, it’s good to know that these in-ear headphones are both waterproof and swea-tproof.
Very few budget-friendly headphones offer concert hall quality sound. (Read: “How To Compare and Buy Audio Equipment, How We Test Sound).
In the mid-volume range, you’ll lose some detail and at the high end, it can be a bit “tinny,” which might vex audiophiles.
The noise dampening is quite good. You will still hear what’s around you but at a much gentler volume.
If you are seeking a comfortable, affordable choice for commuters, gym, or a wireless set of earbuds to listen to music, podcasts, or talk on the phone, it’s an attractive choice.
The retail price is $40. These just launched in January so you might not be able to find them everywhere, but check! We found them on Alieexpress. website.
