I can’t be the only person on Earth who actively rolls their eyes when the first sentence of a review says that person never write reviews EXCEPT for the one product you’re reading about lol. 😒 Just own it, hmm? Who cares if you do or don’t? We ALL write reviews and that’s a good thing cuz the honest ones truly do help others! Smh 🤦🏻♀️🙄😂. So, I DO write reviews and this one is no exception 😉.
TLDR folks: decent quality case, unbelievable battery life and amazing sound quality. The earbud build feels cheaply made (plastic) but I assure you they aren’t. These are great budget earbuds that sound like they should cost $100. You won’t be disappointed. Buy them!
I was not expecting much from these earbuds at first, even though I was hopeful and had all my digits crossed. When I first took them out of the box, my first thought was great… another cheap and poorly made earbud set. I was very wrong in my initial judgment. Read on for detailed info.
Yes, the case feels partly low quality, especially the lid because it’s plastic and very lightweight. However, this case packs quite the punch in battery life, quality AND digital display! I’m very impressed. The bottom half of the case is heavy like a battery pack should feel. I have NOT tried charging anything with the case except the earbuds (although I did plug a usb cord in for a brief moment and tested it with charging my iPhone… it did work as advertised). I love the fact it has a digital display that shows you how much battery life is left in the case, as well as how charged up each earbud is separately! That’s a cool feature I haven’t seen with other earbuds.
Wow. That’s all I can really say lol. Truly I am flabbergasted by the exceptional quality and longevity of this case/battery pack! I am a DAILY earbud user. I often put them in to watch 3-4 hours of TV each night before bed… and fall asleep with them on and still in my ears. I’ll wake up 5-8 hours later… and the earbuds are STILL on and working, with about 15% battery left. So basically, I’ve used these for upwards of 10 hours on a full charge and they are still on. Not a single other earbud set I’ve owned can even come close to that! So if battery life is high on your list of expectations, you won’t be disappointed in the slightest. I EASILY use these earbuds daily as mentioned, and I still don’t need to charge the case up after a full week!
Do not be deterred by the cheap feeling plastic casing of the earbuds, or the less than clear voice in your ear saying “TWS connected… connected.” Those 2 voices only take 3 seconds max and they are already paired to your device (after initial setup of course). Once again, these earbuds shine in just how quickly they find the Bluetooth connection and pair. I’ve never had anything connect via Bluetooth quite this fast.
Aside from the partially fuzzy sounding voices saying your earbuds are connected, the sound quality is incredible! There’s decent bass, everything sounds crystal clear and the volume control is phenomenal. They can go up in volume from a whisper to a scream at the push of a button. The volume can even be controlled via TV remote, as long as the remote is paired to your TV too the same way the earbuds are. When I watch movies, I often think I’m at the big screen theater, they truly sound that good to me. 😁
The earbuds are a bit difficult to remove from the case because they are smooth hard plastic on the outside with no grip and they are embedded in the case a little too deeply for big fingers. The best way I’ve found to remove them when you want to use them is either to lick your fingers first a little to create grab, or tip the case upside down and shake/tap the case until they fall out.
Also, the earbuds sometimes won’t connect to the case to charge, especially if the prongs are even a little dirty (earwax for example). If that happens, just wash the earbuds off very well, paying special attention to the prongs to make sure they are clean and clear. Then the earbuds will seat properly and charge.
Overall, for as inexpensive as these earbuds are, I am extremely pleased. I also have 2 pairs of Anker Life Soundcore A1 earbuds, and these rival those in sound quality. So much so that I bought a 2nd pair as a backup, in case anything happens to my first set. I really love these earbuds! I’m very happy. You will be too, buy them! 🙂
