TWS branded earbuds are a plenty these days with multiple variants on offer or branded TWS generic which can be found in many corner shops or tech shops these days that are littered with Chinese knock offs. Out of the gate these are called a replica but recently I checked out a similar version albeit one side only and it was the biggest pile of dirt to set foot on my review table.
This pair however I am glad to say are good,better than Airpods and come in at around 50 euros and have a decent level of bass and loud. They have wireless charging case too and after testing for many hours to give them a run they still work fine today and have been great to use over the last while which I really did not expect at all.
These work on both Android and iOS but you do not get the same nice animation on your Android phone as you would with Apple (it does work on Apple) See HERE and I would have liken to see that in action but it is what it is, The do come up on your phone as Airpods too which is funny.
Listening to my usual You Tube playlist and tracks on phone they really did surprise me with the sound quality and I would certainly pass them off as a good knock off so If you cant afford Airpods you might want to check them out, I do not condone knock offs but after trying these they are worth the spend, All genres and soundstages came out well with nice bass,there is no app but no need for one here with these if you are a bass fan. There is plenty of alternatives out there of course from other known brands and after testing more than enough competitors out there Airpods and their price have had their day just like the overpriced iPhone, NO I am not going to plug the iPhone or Airpods like many tech journalists do day in and day out even when not discussing such. Overpriced goods are now numbered with the cost to ratio performance coming down all the time.
My only concern is how long they will last so it is something to keep in mind I will check back in in a few months time and see how they live up but for now is it worth the risk, that is up to you but my testing has been very thorough and they work fine. Also the fit, Airpods are known not to fit everyone the same applies here. Going forward tech journalists need to shut up constantly hyping and comparing Airpods and iPhones at any given chance they get and move along and start looking at other things.

▶ The Power of 15-hour Battery Life
i500 delivers a 4-hour of listening time-all on one charge. And they’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple charges for more than 15 hours of listening time. Need a quick charge? Just put AirPods back in the case for 45 minutes to get up to 4 hours of listening time and 2 hours of talk time.
▶ In-Ear Optical Sensors
i500 TWS Headphones have similar features with the original one such as Optical Sensors, they sense when they’re in your ears and pause when you take them out.
▶ Wireless Charging Case
i500 comes with a Wireless Charging Case, which is used for both charging and storage purposes so it won’t get lost. The Charging Case is about the size of a container of dental floss, so it’s easily pocketable. A Lightning port at the bottom lets the i500 and the case be charged with the Lightning cables you already have on hand, and the Wireless Charging Case lets you charge with a Qi wireless charger.
