REVIEW – As a gadget person, convenience is one of the capabilities I am always seeking. Also, since during the day I am usually connected to some device and need to be able to conduct phone calls and listen to music, I am always wearing some sort of headset or earbuds.

These earbuds have a soft silicone neckband and all of the controls are on the right side of the neckband.

Next to the controls, there is the micro USB charging port that is protected by a rubber cover.

The earbuds are magnetic so they clasp together. This works well when you are not using them and need them to stay around your neck.

Performance

The first thing that I did out of the box was to fully charge the earbuds. I then downloaded and installed the mobile app.

The following are screenshots from the app:
(The setup includes a head and ear mapping feature that requires you to use the app and take a picture of each ear and a front-facing picture. )

The adjustments via the app allow you to customize the sound to the way you desire, and movies and music sound good. The battery life is pretty good and I am able to watch multiple movies without any degradation. The separation of frequencies is also good with a nice balance of lows, mids, and highs, and all of the genres that I tested sounded good. Phone calls are also clear with neither party experiencing any issues.

The earbuds fit securely and comfortably in my ears.

What I like

  • The sleek design
  • The simultaneous dual Bluetooth connectivity and seamless transition between 2 devices
  • The sound quality both for music and phone
  • The sound customization via the app
  • The build quality
  • The battery life

What I’d change

  • Not sure how to fix this but if I am walking briskly they fall backward from around my neck. Maybe somehow a stronger magnet between the earbuds that would prevent this

Final thoughts

I have to say that I really like these earbuds. I have been using them a lot for some phone calls, listening to music, and when watching movies on my tablet. They are well built and in my opinion, the quality is worth the price.

Price: $99.99
