REVIEW – I don’t like earbuds. Let’s get that out of the way. However, my wife was tired of sweaty, over-the-ear headphones while working out, so I took a look at the Echobox Wireless Ti-22BT earbuds.
What is it?
Wireless Bluetooth stereo earbuds crafted from “aerospace grade titanium”
- Bluetooth 4.1
- Water resistant (not waterproof)
- 8 hours playtime
- Magnetic housing
- Inline controls
- MicroUSB charging
What’s in the box?
Besides the usual micro USB cable, the headphones come with a small drawstring bag and an assortment of ear tips and ear hooks. The eartips come in different sizes, as well as materials. There’s milky-white silicone tips and black squishy foam tips.
Design and features
These look like many of the other Bluetooth earbuds you’d find on Amazon.
There are three buttons for volume and control. A small rubber flap covers the charging port. There’s not a lot of branding except on the side of the control.
There is a tiny LED on the controller above the + button. Press and hold the middle button for 6 seconds to enter pairing mode.
The headphones show up as “Echobox Ti-22 BT”.
I liked the black “horn” that help keep the earbuds in your ear. However, I found that sound quality depended heavily on actual fit.
Sound quality wasn’t anything to write home about, mostly because it depended so much on how they fit. It’s a good thing you get an assortment of tips to experiment with.
My wife tested them out (those are my ears pictured) and she complained that the earbuds kept falling out. She didn’t have the patience to try other tips, so she’s back to her sweaty, over-the-ear foam headphones. Yuck.
What I like
- Magnetic snaps
- Many different tips included
What needs to be improved
- Expensive for the sound quality you get.
If you like in-ear headphones, and you’re patient, the Echobox Wireless Ti-22BT earbuds look and feel pretty nice. If you don’t tolerate earbuds well, look elsewhere.
