Let's dig deeper
So, how does it feel when worn and does it last the distance?
They are certainly comfortable, likely due to the three different sized ear pieces and a lightweight design. They look a little goofy when worn, as they stick out from your ears due to the battery and Bluetooth receiver located within, but they're passable as 'fashion technology'.
One main issue comes to light when I wore them walking to the train and around university. Thanks to their rather grippy cable and design, they can fall out of your ears quite easily as the cable catches on your hair, skin, or bag. This became a little annoying and saw me flicking the cable around behind my neck to get it sitting in the right place. In the end there's nothing completely wrong with them, but I've had better experiences with a corded cable threaded underneath my t-shirt.
How does it compare?
Comparing this to my two previously used models including my wired Tt eSPORTS Isurus Dub and wired Jenkins-j10 earphones, this Bluetooth model sounds about the same as the latter product.
It's not quite as loud as the other two products and the clarity is lacking a little compared to the Isurus Dub (more like the Jenkins model), but overall, it's very similar. The bass is certainly apparent and the clarity is a little muffled, seeing mainstream top-40 dance mixes perform the best out of all.
Using the same song examples as seen previously with my Noontec Zoro II HD review, quieter tracks perform reasonably, seeing Twenty One Pilots' 'Ode To Sleep' report back an average experience, leaving a little to be desired.
Swapping to another genre and listening to some chilled-out rap like that from Nas, the muffled sound stays apparent, but the added bass makes for a more pleasurable experience.
It's nothing amazing, but it's certainly not a dud product either; I guess the way you could describe it as a whole is average. It's light for what it offers which is great, the playback time is good, and it scores well in the looks department, but the price and sound quality bring it all back down quite a lot.
It's a good set of earphones for the gym as nothing will get in your way of the short cable, however, for commuting, I will still be using my wired earphones. The sound quality is on par with stock Samsung Galaxy S4 earphones and my previously reviewed Jenkins-j10, but it's not quite there with the Tt eSPORTS Isurus Dub and most mainstream brands. I understand that I'm comparing wired to wireless here, but I don't see it as worth a large sound compromise in order to gain wireless capabilities. After all, it shortens the life of your phone battery either way.
