Good quality, incredible battery life, good value
July 11, 2018
I got these a week or so ago and have been testing them. Overall I am impressed by the good balance of price, quality, and sound.
Pros: easy pairing, very fast re-pairing each time; comfortable neck strap; light weight; comfortable earpieces that block out external noise and stay in well; magnetic earbuds that connect so you can wear as a necklace, handy. Convenient volume/power/multiswitch on the right; good bluetooth range; incredible battery life.
Cons: a little heavier than some other earbuds due to the dual cord batteries, so can slide around for very active use; sound is 4/5, good for a lot of music and podcasts but missing a little more low end.
I also bought a pair of TaoTronics earbuds, those stay in ears slightly better and are lighter with the cord, and have better bass and overall sound, BUT they have nowhere near the battery life of these Aomais BT earbuds.
Regarding the sound of these: I listened to rock, metal, classical, classic rock, pop, styles of music, Youtube, and several podcasts. They have good audio clarity and frequency range so the spoken audio is clear but not boomy or unnatural. With music, I think they need about 25% more bass output and/or low frequency reach. Some music was fine, other music with more bass would overload the speakers or distort a bit.
To be clear, I DON’T like overly boomy bass sound, it gives you a headache. These for the next model could use slightly more bass output. Not tons. The TaoTronics model was better here. I usually use “rock” EQ on my iPhone, but for the TaoTronics I have to use “Electronic” to not have too much bass.
For reference, I think the Apple earbuds have a very good sound, nice range and clarity, bass but not boomy ridiculous bass.
These Aomais earbuds have dual pods on the wire that must be the batteries. One has a micro-USB port to charge. I charged them up when new, eventually the red light turned blue. What I next observed amazed me.
They were 100% per my iPhone detail screen. I listened to some music for a couple hrs, then rechecked. Still 100%. I then listened to some Podcasts, etc, for another 30 min., later for another hr or 1.5 hr, and checked the battery: 100% still. Holy cow!
It took me about 4-6 hours of use, albeit intermittent, to drop the batteries to 90%. Yes, you read that right, only a 10% drop. If I used the TaoTronics earbuds after 6 hrs. I’d be around 30-40%. The battery life so far is INCREDIBLE. The larger neck pods are likely why.
I like having at least 2 pr. of BT earbuds because sometimes you want to use them, then you realize they are dead or nearly dead. This Aomais earbuds pair advertises 12 hrs. of power. Unless all of sudden it drops like a rock, I would guess they could last 18 or 24 hrs. Incredible. They must conserve power when off also, because they are still 90% today, and I used them another 2 hrs.
I am a legitimate reviewer and bought these on Amazon. They are now basically my ‘go to’ earbuds for general use, walking, yardwork, etc. They pair super fast and have good sound. If the bass could be increased 20-25% then they would be perfect, great sound with incredible battery life, and much less expensive than Bose or Beats, etc.
UPDATE: using them for a couple more weeks, I am liking the sound better now, bass can really depend on the CD. I am still AMAZED at the long, long battery life. Wow. Plus comfort and convenience. May need to buy a second pair.
