I know what you’re thinking: “Great 😕 … another pair of in-ear headphones”. Fear not, the EP-B40 by AUKEY are not just another average, budget friendly pair of “wireless” in-ear’s – no no. These earbuds have a few tricks in their wires to make them stand out from the crowd.
A few weeks back, after having reviewed both the SoundPEATS Q29 and the SoundPEATS B30, the guys at SoundPEATS reached out and asked if I’d like to review their Q30 headphones. The Q30’s are essentially a merger of the aforementioned Q29 and B30 headphones, being wireless on the most part, but retaining a single wire between the two individual earbuds.
Whilst wireless earbuds/headphones are the next big thing that every brand, marketer and purchaser is jumping on board for, there are still times where a pair of good old wired earbuds come in handy. No need to charge, no need to pair – sometimes simple plug-and-play is needed! Keeping a cheap yet decent quality pair of wired earbuds close-by for when your wireless headphones need to charge is a sensible thing to do. Enter: The SoundPEATS B30 Upgraded Edition.
It has been a while since I have been “truly wireless”. As a matter of fact, now I think about it – I’ve never really been “truly wireless”, simply because wireless earbuds/headphones always still had a wire either between each earbud or for charging! And of course, with Apple rolling out their own wireless earbud (the AirPods), the wireless earbud market has seen a flood of alternative brands and options! Enter, the SoundPEATS Q29 earbuds. Coming in at 1/3 of the price of Apple’s AirPods and cheaper than most of their competitors in the sector – is the offering too good to be true?
