These are truly wireless with no cables, wires or anything to connect the left to the right to the music. Bluetooth technology is built into the earbuds, which receive the sound from your music source.
Each black earbud charges in a lipstick-like capsule, which connects to a power source with a microUSB cable. It’s worth noting for Apple fans that the capsule design is very Applye-esque.
The capsule is a 600 mAh Rechargeable Li-Ion battery that should charge the earbuds in 75 minutes.
They weigh .12 ounces each and are by far the smallest earbuds I’ve tried. You get several sets of earbuds with the kit and normally I won’t spend much time finding the right fit, I just go with the ones installed. With these you want to have a secure, tight fight, ensuring the best sound quality along with keeping them safe in your ears.
When you place the earbuds in your ear, you’ll notice each is built with an angled tip to help them feel comfortable as well as getting the sound angled into your ear.
As for the sound, I was really impressed. The Earin app helps you set up the sound balance and offers a bass boost.
Earin describes the sound as “An incredibly detailed sound with excellent mid and high-tones, and a tight bass response all reproduced with minimal distortion.”
A Snakable is a cable I can see as innovative and disruptive as any; in fact I’ve never seen any other like this. Each end of the cable has Snakable’s patented strain relief technology featuring rotating ball joints with 90 degrees of movement.
Each end twists, turns and rotates to keep everything working, connected and charging.
I had no problem connecting the cable on my Otterbox case on my phone and each cable is 4-feet long.
They are available with Apple Lightning (Apple certified), microUSB and USB type C tips in a choice of five colors (black eclipse, green leaf, orange flame, red meter and white cloud).
Along with the clear sound at any volume, it’s packed with lots of features.
Inside is a pair of 5-watt precision-tuned drivers and a built-in 1800mAh rechargeable Lithium Ion battery for up to 15 hours of portable use.
A built-in microphone lets you use the portable (6.4-by-2.4-by-1.1-inches) speaker for hand-free calls.
