3.0 out of 5 starsSlightly above average for the price
9 March 2019
The good: Stable connection, quick to pair, have all the necessary controls on the ear buds. The bad: No bass at all - but at least doesn't mute on the deep ranges, box a bit finicky and big. Can't hard power off without setting back in box.
For the price, its probably slightly above average.
After using another product from Taotronics I was looking forward to this product and had high expectations.
Unfortunately it does have some flaws but the features, service, quality and price outweigh them.
My biggest 2 gripes are minor.
Firstly the product doesn't fit great out of the box. You may need to have a play with the other buds to get the right fit and assist in keeping them on during excercise. If you're using aftermarket buds you won't be able to close the door. I may have high expectations but my previous pair of bh042 blew me away 5/5.
Secondly the buds are extremely easy to press by accident. Can get quite annoying at times.
Customer support: Taotronics customer service is above and beyond many other providers out there and really care what thier customers get out of their products.
My initial thoughts were nice packaging, great charging case and neat looking minimalist design. Connected to my iphone without hassle. Left earbud first then right, but you can use either one at a time although left is master. Nice sound but not enough bass when I first listened to music but after a week of use I did not notice this much. With call quality, person on other end had issues hearing me clearly unless i was in a quiet environment. All in all great product.
My first purchase from TaoTronics and very pleased with the earphones. They are light and stay in very well. Call quality and bluetooth are top class - much better than my previous Vava bluetooth earphones, and can easily have my phone in any pocket whilst walking outdoors without dropping connectivity.
Slight cons are the relatively low battery time of the case - probably has 2.5 charges in it, which will easily last a full days use, but means I almost always have it charging whilst I'm at work - no real biggie. I'm still getting used to the touch functionality, as it seems like it goes to sleep, and the first touch wakes it up - so if I tap twice the first time it'll drop the volume (as if I'd only tapped once) etc. Not sure if that's me or the designed functionality.
I mainly use it to watch videos on my travel to work and back. I don't like noise cancelling headphones as I like to hear train announcements & i need all my sense when walking.
Pros: - No noise cancellation - this would be a con for most people - Easy to use - Connect to each other & my phone via BT seamlessly - Not too big - The softness of its LED, not blinding when blinking - The big battery, I am still on my first charge after 2 weeks - can also be used for emergency backup battery to charge your phone
Cons: - The plastic transparent lid which is quite fragile - Slightly bigger than I would like - Sound quality not the greatest but good enough for me
Decided that $50AU wasnt too bad to try the fully wireless buds.
Sound quality - lacks a lot of bass - there is decent midrange, but the bass is AWOL Comfort - with the various sizes of the silicone tips, it shouldn't be too hard to find a comfortable fit. Battery Life - the case (charger) has been charged once, the buds go back in after each walk - after a month odd of use, the case is STILL full! amazing!
I really only use them when walking the dog - i probably adjust the fit of them every few minutes - but im OK with that.. i wouldnt want to try running with them!
It looks so cool and so fashion. Sound effect is pretty good. The earbuds can use separately so I always can use one and recharge the other one. The case of the earbuds is also a recharge case which can use as a power bank. It is awesome. I will buy another for my wife.
