UMIDIGI Ubeats – the company claims it is the best value and performance BT 5.0, in-ear, neck strap style headphones today. If enthusiasm counts and UMIDIGI has that in spades – the company and its products deserve to succeed.
GadgetGuy has covered this largely unheard of company (in Australia) – its F1 smartphone (n relation to the F1 motorsport) offers incredible value at $279.99 and has a 4.4-out-of-5 rating. If the UMIDIGI Ubeats (no relationship to Beats by Dr Dre) follow
a similar formula, then they are worth several times what they are charging.
Warm and Sweet (bass/mids boosted, treble recessed)
Bright Vocal (bass recessed, mids/treble boosted)
This is Warm and Sweet but has lots of potential to use an EQ to go mid-centric (for clear voice) or a little more bass. For a US$19.99 headphone, this is crazy good – far better than headphones for ten times the price.
OK Google and voice
A short press on the power button summons OK Google or Siri.
It can then play song lists etc. You don’t get voice foldback.
Callers said I sounded clear and not at all in a ‘tunnel’.
Our tests confirm up to 15 hours at 50% volume (comfortable)
and correspondingly less for higher volumes – let’s average that at 12 hours
for most users. BT 5.0 devices usually report battery levels.
The silica gel necklace – the closest analogy looks wise is
that black rubber insulation piping you see on air-conditioners – is durable,
flexible and well made. It has a 1-year replacement warranty.
GadgetGuy’s take – all buds should be as good as Umidigi Ubeats
I am impressed. I prefer over-the-ear, ANC headphones costing
20X times this. Frankly, the sound quality was as good as I have heard, and the
snug ear tip fit reduces noise to acceptable levels.
