The HHOGene Gpods are a first of its kind and it is what we like to do here and recently we have reviewed another brand which had a similar first of its kind product with their outer casing and sci-fi based and it gave consumers something different over the industry standard today which is boring but it is what it is and it is hard to come up with new ideas keeping the cost down and giving someone totally different. As is we have most manufactures of earbuds etc giving us a refreshed model each year with some design hues kept from previous iterations and it works for most and is fine with me being honest it is how the tech cycle works.

Yes we do get these random new products into market they either succeeded or fail and go on to make more products and again we have worked with companies before that have succeeded still today with new products each year and so on. We have worked with many kickstarter and indiegogo tech products and this latest one is something to take note of..

The presentation is great to start with as you would have seen here in the full unboxing experience so that gets a thumbs up to start with so how does it go after that is what people want to know and how they sound as well as look..

These are comfortable to wear and fit really well in the ears with small stems however the stems is where it is at with how they work and are controlled via an app which allows you to pick from a selection of colours or even create your own we go through all that in the video review below anyway..

Yes they are comfortable to wear with a good seal and as always ensure you have the right tips to get the best results. So how do they sound and is a light show enough to attract the buyers?

So lets talk about the app, the app is really well done it has to be said and again we look at this below in the review in detail and it has many features, there is some features lacking that hopefully can be added later such as an EQ setting and volume control however after that it is quite good and gives you a preview also of shell types and can adjust some settings for the controls, there is no voice assistant access present as yet.

Artificial Intelligence with algorithmic capabilities allow for arranging photos and analysing the colour ratios found in stored photo images. Colours for each pixel point in an image are sorted in order to calculate colour blocks. These blocks are transformed into light which is then projected in colorful style from each earbud.

How do they sound then. These are powered by 10 mm drivers, they are balanced well with some bass thrown in but with no EQ you cant control the music to your requirements but they sound good out of the box and this can be addressed with third party apps but I find them useless being honest, there is no volume control or voice assistant access and limited controls all of which can be changed by software which i would like to see but for a pair of earbuds thy sound good and overall do a good job and by no means sound cheap. The ANC is ok and there is many more settings to customise them to an extent. Battery life is around 3 hours even with the light show on and again this could be also used as a safety feature in the dark mornings and evenings. You also have fast charge where 10 mins will give you two hours use.

Overall here this is something new giving a complete new aesthetic look to earbuds which have become boring looking now and it is a new design that could and most likely will be repeated by others, combining great looks and a decent audio experience I hope to see more in the future from the company and some updates on their app.
