Superhero branded products always catches peoples eyes and it is not the first time we have tested such here and there is more to come on that front but today we have the OTL technologies Superman themed earbuds and whilst they look good the sound is an important factor to take into account and with the really cheap price point they come in at how do they sound is what people will want to know and we have been testing these for a bit now and it is time to talk about them.
They come well presented in a simple superman themed box and with some extra tips and a USB-C cable to get you going and the case is plastic with a glossy finish but free from attracting fingerprints the overall case does feel light and cheap but remember the price here.
The earbuds design is fine with me and average and they fit really well and snug and will not all out of your ears, these for me are more so aimed at kids but this does not mean anyone else can use them. There is decent isolation of the outside world once fitted with the right tips and you are good to go.
There is no app here which is acceptable for me and again I do think these are aimed at a younger generation and it also keeps the cost down, there is no wireless charging on the case either. Battery life is decent enough and without having ANC and other features that demand some power and 6 hours is acceptable at this price, in my testing around 5hr 30 mins was more accurate.
So with the lack on an App and EQ settings how do they sound and what controls have we got. You can skip and reverse, play/pause a track, answer/reject phone calls or activate voice assistant and there is also volume control. So it is a simple affair and simple to use.
Overall the sound was on the deep side with bass and doable but for a child or teenager they are fine there was no distortion at max volume and do a decent all round job, you might want a third part EQ to try get a better balance for your if you are an older person but for kids these are fine, anyone that is older perhaps expecting more out them when it comes to customising may look elsewhere.
