Tribit Xfree Wireless Earphones Review

Image
I'm getting quite a good number of requests to review some wireless 'sports' earphones. I heard Tribit is quite proceed of their new Xfree Color sports earphones, so yeah, I got some.
I'm honestly not the biggest fan when it comes to these sports style earphones. I'd much rather have some truly wireless ones instead. But I'll keep an open mind and get this review done. Hopefully you'll find it helpful.
Build and Design: As I've mentioned in the video review. this is one of the strong suites of the product.

For the price, the metal ear tips and the above average cable quality are welcomed factors. Though I am not very impressed with the mushy buttons and the relatively weak magnets, it still remains one of the best earphones in this budget in terms of hardware quality.
The eartips aren't that big and heavy, so they gave me no issues in fit and comfort. The included wing tips made sure they sit securely in my ears even while they were pretty sweaty. 

Are wired earphones even relevant anymore? Blaupunkt EM-10 Review

Image
Blaupunkt is a relatively well known brand when it comes to audio equipment. They've been around in the car speakers game for quite a while, and are now expanding into the mainstram consumer audio solutions like earphones and bluetooth speakers.

I'll try to get my hands on their new Sound bars and TVs, but for now, let's stick to the product they gave me. The EM-10 wired earphones.

After being sent dozens of fancy truly wireless earbuds, reviewing a plain old wired earphone felt like it's not worth the effort, but hey, I though why not cover another topic, which you already saw in the title along with this review.

Check out the video version if you don't want to read through an article I wrote over an Ice-cream Scoop at the Ideal Cafe. 
Design and build quality:

The shape or the earbuds are such that they push inwards and hold themselves into place. The cable is not tangle free, and gets tied up quite easily.

There's a single button to pause, play, and skip tracks…

Sencer E100 Truly Wireless Earbuds Review : Scores a Second Place!

Image
The E100 wireless earbuds seem to be the most popular among all my product reviews. I find self reading a bunch of comments every week, most of them being queries over the E100. Y'all seem to know the difference between the E100 and other similarly priced TWS earbuds, which is fair enough.

In this article, I have tried to do justice to the functional side of the E100 which I did not do in the video that was posted over 2 months ago. Let's get on with it then.


Key Hardware Features: Compared to Sencer's own BS01 wireless earbuds, the main differences are primary in the design of this thing. It features a traditional magnetic flap design which is slightly easier open and close with one hand.

However, I do wish there was a button to flip open the top lid because it's not very easy to do so with just your fingers. A secure top lid is primarily a good thing, but can be quite annoying since it tends to close very easily but not open just the same.

Second major difference betwe…

Muzili's TWS earbuds review : A love/hate relationship!

Image
Ah, wireless earbuds. Words cannot do justice to the sheer magical experience made possible by the amazing tech inside those coin sized trinkets..atleast when they work as advertised.


I have tried over 8 different Truly wireless buds at this point, and at first, none of them disappointed me as much as this one from Muzili did. But after forcing myself to use it longer, I've come to notice that it isn't all that bad.

In fact, it's actually pretty darn good! The fit was damn near perfect from the get go, without even changing the eartips sizes, which was a first for me.


The sound quality was way above what I expected given the unremarkable build quality of the buds and the case itself. Come to think of it, most of my complaints are with the case!



These are the things that genuinely frustrated me with this thingy:


Crappy case with mushy spring button to open the top hatch. It doesn't even fling it open, it just unlocks it. Meaning, you still need to use two hands to comfo…

How to shoot films on your smartphone without any additional gear!

Image
A lot of my friends seem to think that you can't shoot great videos without expensive camera gear. Well, I beg to differ. I believe that with the technology we currently have in our pockets, wonderful things can be created. Everything else hat comes along, like expensive cameras, tripods, lenses, lights, acoustic gear, are all optional accessories that should be added in only on personal interest and not as necessities.

So, when an opportunity presented itself where I found myself with just my phone's camera and nothing else, I decided to put something together, and here it is!

Watch the video, see if you like it. I promise you, there's a lot more where that came from! so, stay tuned. Check out my little place on YouTube for more such shitty, no-budget shorts!

And of course, as always, check out my socials at Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. We shall chat again soon!

Cheers!

HolyHigh Truly Wireless Earphones: Competing for the Crown!

Image
I have tried a lot of Truly wireless earphones in my time. Each one brings something new, either in terms of design, features or something entirely different. It's the same with this one from HolyHigh, another new player in the marketplace.

I have checked out their fitness trackers in the past, which offer some pretty basic features. When they got in touch with me again to check out these TWS earbuds, I wasn't expecting anything new and improved from them. I said yes regardless, because I'm a sucker for free stuff!

But when I actually got my hands on this thing, I was pleasantly surprised. Or maybe I just enjoy magnets way too much.
