SOUL Electronics was founded in 2009 now a global leader in audio consumer electronics, SOUL Electronics, are based in California in the USA, the brand mission advised they have three core elements which you will find in all SOUL products: Power, Clarity, and Comfort. SOUL Electronics offer a 1 year’s warranty on their products which is the only gripe I can find with this product.
The carry case as supplied is perfect, strong enough to withstand a few knocks and drops but small enough to fit in your pocket.
The setup is easy, no app to download, connect via normal Bluetooth, Two Bluetooth devices can be connected to the earphones. When the unit is turned on / off user you will hear a tone.
Battery & charging:
The battery life of up to 12 hours would indicate a larger battery and weight of the earphones, which is not the case as the unit felt light. The battery life used was considerably better than many earphones used in the past. This extended battery life has not decreased the sound quality or range of the Bluetooth device in any way. The option of the fast charge gets you 90-min of playtime in just 15-min, which if in quandary is immense. The charging unit is practical as charging via the remote, not the earphone allowing easier access to plug in and out.
Soul Run Free Pro HD:
The sports earphone audio is crisp with great bass via the balanced armature drivers that separate lows, midst and highs. The bass is not overpowering while the volume does not appear to have restrictions to its level allowing a very high level if required. The Soul Run Free Pro HD is marketed as a sports earphone but used while travelling was comfortable to use. The Nano technology ensure the earphones are waterproof which should be a prerequisite for gym use.
The quality of construction seems lightweight and comfortable when used over hours of activity. The Soul Run Free Pro HD are not budget earphones and the quality, battery life, over-ear fitting option, style and audio quality makes these a leader in their area.
