Review: iSpecle Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
If you’re anything like me, you love to listen to your favorite music while you run you RC car or truck. Not only does it make the entire experience more enjoyable, but if you’re the RC racing type, it drowns out your competitors and all of those backseat drivers in the peanut gallery. That’s why, when our friends over at iSpecle offered to send us pair of their new Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds to review, we were beyond ecstatic. These little gems boast a CSR4.1 Bluetooth chip, APT-X technology and CVC 6.0 noise cancellation, as well as an IPX4 waterproof rating, and two 55 mah hour battery packs that are said to last an amazing 8 hours on one charge.
After hearing that the iSpecle Bluetooth Earbuds cost a mere $30 on Amazon, I pretty much expected a cheap, low quality product. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Everything about this product oozes quality. The “pods” that house the electronics, batteries and speakers are machined from a beautiful chunk of aluminum that has been coated in a grey anodizing (red is also available). The ear buds are made of a soft flexible material that is very comfortable in my ear, and there are three sizes to choose from. Even the wire that runs between the two earbuds feels like a nice expensive silicone.
So how did they sound? Again, for the price, I really didn’t expect much. And yet again, I was wrong. I’ve been using a pair of $20 wired JVC earbuds for the past ten years because I’ve had a hard time finding any reasonably priced earbuds that sounded nearly as good. The iSpecle Bluetooth Earbuds blow them away. I couldn’t believe it either, but they do. The base is deep, the treble is nice and clear and they don’t break up or produce any static. As for their range, iSpecle advertises a 33 foot range but in my experience they are way off. I was able to walk at least 100 feet away from my phone before the signal was lost. I was blown away!
The iSpecle Bluetooth Earbuds come equipped with built in controls that allow you to pause and play your audio, raise and lower the volume and even answer or reject incoming phone calls. They also include a neat little storage case and charge cable. When it comes time to charge them, all you have to do is plug them into any 500mah USB charger for about 3 hours and you’re good to go! Check out the pictures and then go pick up a set for yourself.
