Quite long away i had a high interests in finding a Bluetooth model for me and my daughter The only question was the money barrier that is to be under 20 Euro
Just looking via the
net I finally read this article in xiaomitoday page that aroused my interest to look for.
The writer was well enthused for the quality of the product plus its audio.
Some local research shown prices from 19.5 plus shipping via courier etc With little more research I found that in my city for just 19.5 out of around 25 -30 in
other stores in Greece ! Due to covid19 conditions I Used the 'click away. method and then immediately gone back
to the house!
Notice that I was quite enthused to read his article even i was quite suspicious that it can't all be so true!
The model has the typical connections with optional stereo jumper wire for compatibility with non BT audio gear or older models as radios etc . There is also a mini USB D type socket for power adaptors . Around 2-3 hours for full charge. It's battery was nearly empty at the time of purchase.
The model is provided in 3 different colors black red and green. I preferred to order the red model.
These are the only controls offered on the model.
-A lighter !
-in the middle of the control buttons is the on off button.It is also used to received telephone call
-previous /next song buttons or volume control
The headphones re also supposed to cancel the external noise . as the writer in the xiaomi page notices:
They cancel noise very well.when i used them for the first time it was like everything else in he world had gone silent
I don't know exactly what happened to the model reviewer but the earphones were partially touching to my ears leaving some space on their bottom as it can be seen in the photo below (around 6mm space!) I needed to experiment more to find the optional position by tilting the headphone skeleton towards the front of my head for the best isolation
What is mentioned from his page about the sound quality :
promises crystal clear sound quality and provides it. While the bass is not too much keeping in mind the security of your eardrum, while listening to some pop or rap music or some heavy death metal music, a decent amount of bass can be detected by the ears. But if you are someone who is looking for a very highly boosted bass, you might not find these particular headphones to your liking.
Did i notice my finding?
I used a forgotten model of AKG 81DJ model (DJ model??) I own this set around 3-4 years ago. It was bought at 18Eu via amazon, a original price of around 40 Eu but discontinued even longer. They were tested by checking first the wired AKG and then the Awei .
AKG model has relatively low volume and is a bit bassy . Awei model is much bassier than the AKG with lack of some high trebles and a rather high bass that covers part of the middle range. As in result it sounds relatively dull This is the result of Awei in Bluetooth mode with my smartphone
As in result
-audio rating 4/5
-fidelity rating 2.5/5
The next test was with inline listing with both headphones and the results are a bit more linear towards the linearity of e DJ81
-audio rating 4/5
-fidelity rating 3-/5
I then am curious which headphones the reviewer uses as 'pattern' or specimen to test the gear !!! Did he ever tested with more serious models as I?
Next test was walking inside the house and a paired with the smartphone. The max distance is around 7-8 m with two walls in between, The building is 60 years old with just one brick-fat wall Just 10 cm wide!
As in result the headphones are not 100% what they promise. Not very hifi but just a middle level that can't cover the full distance as promised ! For the money at 19Eu the results are good but for 30 Eu are over priced!
