and they sound like one. For their asking price, the earphones’ sound quality is good. Moreover, the add-on features, like using individual earphone for calls, are welcome addition that strengthen the earphones overall utility. The earphones’ 6mm audio drivers are tuned to deliver impressive bass, which gets too heavy at times. The earphones’ in-ear design provides good noise isolation to filter ambient noise. However, do not expect active noise cancellation-type quality here.
