I've been a long time user of in-ear devices when making short trips, working out at the gym, or travelling abroad. Although some prefer the over-ear experience, I feel that the (generally provided) higher quality of sound in-ear devices coupled with the passive noise cancellation due to them being located within your ear to be a great positive.
There's always some issues, mainly based around comfort, but also when you're thinking about ease of use (do they fall out of your ears?) and also their looks (do they actually look good?).
These earphones are NFC and Bluetooth only which is something new for me and slightly worrying at first as I like to use my headphones on my 20 minute walk to and from University alongside the 45 minute return train ride and quite often during a four-hour study session. Will they stand up to my tests? Read on to find out.
Complete with NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 coupled with an APTX codec, you'll find that this product also contains a built-in microphone and hands-free functionalities located within a little rubber in-line control unit.
These earphones are charged by a micro-USB input and offer you five hours of music playback with an approximate two-hour charging time. Unfortunately, iClever's website and user manual are both completely devoid of speaker specifications, so I'll have to explain it in relation to other units I have tested.
Pricing & Availability
It's not the cheapest set of earphones on the market, however, for $56.99 on Amazon, it's not that bad either.
What's in the box?
Providing you with a few 'stabilizers', three sized rubber ear grommets, a micro-USB cable, and a user manual, this package is almost everything you would come to expect from a product placed in this price range.
The reason I say "almost" is due to the fact that it's missing a carry pouch or case - something that I believe to be almost a necessity in this day and age of peripheral manufacturing and something that other companies offer regularly. For around this price, I expect a protective transportation pouch to be included and I am a little disappointed that it isn't.
