Cant believe the value for money
1 May 2019
I got these Q5 bluetooth earbuds to replace my aging JBL E25BT's which only last for 4~5 hours max. I needed something that would not need to be recharged every day or so. Most bluetooth buds only last up to 8hours rated, and the ones with the neck band seem to go maybe 12hours max. So when i read reviews of this rated at 48 hours, i couldnt believe it. How could one manufacturer get it so right if every one else is unable to? Whats the catch?
So ive had these for a week now, used to work and back in public transport, and i am pretty impressed. i still have not needed to plug it in from first charge (yet), its been about 4 days use so far. Sound quality is actually pretty good, with the default earbuds allowing a light airy sound, with reasonable bass. i found the default buds too loose, so i swapped to the medium size - this is now secure in my ears, and bass is much stronger. Turning them on, youre greeted with a voice to confirm power on, and the battery level. So far all she says is "battery high" :) The unit itself is a nice soft touch rubber around the neck and bands, very little microphonics from the cables rubbing your shirt collar (the JBLs sounded like a thunderstorm from microphonics), the magnet lock is strong and secure, it has a very easy to press button control when youre not looking... seriously wheres the catch?
I'll update this review as soon as i find a flaw here - but for now, connection is stable, sound is good, and battery seems amazing. And i bought this for $35AU. I dont understand upmarket units priced at $300+ when im seeing performance like this from some no-name brand. Lets hope it lasts!
