Every once in a while a product crosses my desk that I just love and this is one of them and that is a rare thing for me and if you are a person that travels this simply is a must have piece of technology in your pocket, OK one could argue there is standalone translators out there and you can use you voice assistants and so on but these do a great job plus they sound dam good too so they are a 2-in-one product that just delivers.
When to company contacted me I was a bit dubious however once I gave these a test run I was more than impressed and these for the two reasons outlined above they work quite well and they deliver on sound yet they are on the large size and one might feel they are too big you can forgive it and they are also light they will not fall out of your ears and you will forget they are there, I do wish they came in different colours and perhaps the next model will be smaller but overall they are a worthy investment particularly for those who travel and is learning a language.
The build quality here is fine although just like your typical earbud and the build is just plastic but they are durable, they are light, bigger than conventional earbuds but overall fine and you will forget they are there after a few minutes use.
Controls are minimal when it comes to use but the basics are there you have to remember they are not a music focussed product too you can skip tracks, play and pause and you can also access your voice assistant and the controls work really well due to their size we go through all this in the hands on review below and all the functions on offer they are really intuitive and I love the idea. When it comes to using as a traditional pair of true wireless these are actually good, they are loud well balanced and I would certainly use them on a daily basis and if travelling these would certainly be in my tech bag without a doubt.
When it comes to the translation this is where they do the job they aim to do and they can be used in several ways to use the translation functions and all is simple to do and no real tech know how to get going and you will need your smartphone to implement the functions. Check out the options you have and the detailed video review below for more.
