These headphones were given to me as a gift with the purchase of a household appliance, so this post does not contain any promotional link or anything of the sort.
They are the first of their kind I’ve used
I usually wear the typical wireless earphones that can also be used with a cable, and none of the ones I’ve had so far have lasted more than six months. Either the cables or the connectors broke or the plastic ring on the head was cracked somewhere.
This is the cheapest version of other superior ones from the same brand, they came out a couple of years ago and are around 20-30 euros.
They advertise between three and five hours of battery life (depending on volume) and about 20 hours on a full charge (they say about three) with the 410 mAh case fully charged.
I still don’t know how long it takes to fully charge the case because it came fully charged and I’m still using its charges. To charge the case, just plug in the cable and when the front LED turns off, it’s at full charge.
To use the headphones for the first time you have to put them in the charging case and close the lid to activate them.
When the front light on the charging case stays on for 5 seconds and then turns off, the battery has sufficient charge.
If the indicator on the charging case flashes white, it means that the battery level in the charging case is low and will die soon, so the charging case should be recharged.
The headphones go into the corresponding slots in the charging case and charge quite quickly. I estimate that a full charge takes less than 45 minutes and in just 15 minutes you have them at 40/60%.
Despite being the cheapest of the brand, the materials don’t look shabby. The finishes are decent. On the downside, the palitroque is a bit thicker and longer than usual, 4.3 cm. The total weight, including the case, is 48 grams.
There are no rubber bands or pads, but they are not annoying. They have some touch and voice functions, although some can only be used on a supported mobile phone, such as voice detection.
Using both earbuds, double-tapping the touch zone on the right earbud (R) plays or pauses the audio. Two taps on the left earpiece will open the assistant (on mobile). Touch functions cannot be customised.
Smart in-ear wear detection feature allows them to be activated when you put them on and deactivated when you take one of them off. Only one can be used. To use only the left earpiece, place the right earpiece in the charging case and close the lid.
You have to put the R in the right ear and the L in the left ear, otherwise they will not sound or will sound bad
They have two microphones, but only one microphone cancellation system for calls, so some ambient noise can sneak in when listening to music.
Synchronisation is a bit fiddly if you set them up for use on PC and mobile alternately. Sometimes, when going back and forth from PC to mobile or vice versa, you have to repeat the detection.
The specs say they have a range of 10 metres and, although this will depend on obstacles and the type of BT on the device where you use them, I have noticed more cuts and disconnections than usual.
They sound pretty good for a low-end headset, although you have to bear in mind that I’ve been using one of those one euro cable headphones that are a bit of a gutter headset, and anything else will now seem wonderful by comparison.
I’m leaving this note here to update it if I manage (or not) to get them to last more than six months.
