Earbuds and headphones are my thing here and it is a rare occasion when I get impressed with earbuds under a certain price and as I have been saying for a while now the cost to performance ratio has come along way when it comes to both and with a pair of earbuds that have an app which is actually great and aptX for well under a 100 quid is a rare thing, yes there is other caveats here like mobile phones cutting corners to get the price down but here these are not key features left out and everyone has their own features they desire, as someone who reviews the most earbuds in Ireland I can relate to all sides here so even for me I have my own personal preferences but again can let those go if the product as whole delivers so what is missing here before we move in is auto play and pause wireless charging and that is probably the only downsides here which is not much to talk about but you get the full story here from us on what you get for your money..
As those who know we do not give a stock image review with no context or two paragraphs and the press release attached we give you the video we look at the features and the app and there is plenty here to talk about at this price point. So what features for me here that stands out at the price here is aptX dual point connectivity and app and single use (AKA mono mode) meaning you can use one earbud at a time while the other is still charging, this believe it or not is a feature left out on earbuds three or four times the cost of these but again different strokes for different folks and all that everyone has their needs and preferences.
Ok so there is an app here which is cool and works well and allows you to customise your earbuds, yes we go through this in the video review and what you have at your disposal with the EQ player not only that you have find your earbuds and lots more which makes these appealing and lots on offer. And… you even get the pop up window on the app set-up.
As for comfort and fit these are also fine, stems are not for all and come in different lengths and thicknesses nor are in ears again a personal choice I am fine with both and use to having the opportunity to see all sides of the options here myself, the controls work well and as seen above can be customised to your needs which is great and not an out of the box default set-up which you can avail of if you wish.
When it comes to the sound it is good as a whole with the EQ settings in the app you can figure out what suits you or choose the default modes and edit from there for me these where good and well balanced overall and of course the bass for me was my choice but it is worth messing around with the settings, one thing to note if you pick game mode all these options become obsolete but you can use the device you are connected to to change that and no lag latency noted from me, calls are also fine too both ends on my testing.
Conclusion – On a budget and want a pair of earbuds that sound good offer more than others at this price there are one to put down on your list and so far one the best pair of earbuds in this price range this year.
