Details About the SoundPeats Q9A Bluetooth Earbuds
Bluetooth technology allows Sound Peats to be used without the cord getting in the way. Whether you are working out, listening to music, or just relaxing, these headphones provide a range of up to 33 feet and some without a cord to trip you up.
However, you get what you pay. That is always important to remember. The Q9A comes with an excellent design and secure ear hook fit. They also come with noise canceling features as well.
There are many positives to the earbuds, but the sound quality isn’t as good as more expensive models. However, these buds are only $19.99, making them perfect if you’re on a tight budget.
The marketplace is a competitive world, however, and all products have their competitors. The Jabra Pulse Wireless and Monster iSport SuperSlim are just a few examples out of the variety of top quality sports earbuds available on the market today. You have to weigh key features, and the pros and cons of any product before you decide if it is right for you; and the SoundPeats Q9A is no exception.
A Look at The Design and Comfort Elements
When looking at the design, the Q9 ear buds have a sporty look to them. The ear hooks are made using black plastic that is flexible; allowing them to feel soft as you wear them.
These headphones are perfect for activities in the gym. They are good to have when you are exercising because the headphones are designed to be fixed to your ear. This prevents the headphones from falling off your ears as you use them, and headphones’ falling off happens all the time when running.
Each earpiece is compact and is of straightforward design. The company name with a line underneath can be found towards the end. The headphones contain no other decoration.
Both the name of the company and the line, sort of curve towards the end. The line is available in red or gray based on the model that you purchase.
The buds fit snugly on the inside of your ear. Sound Peats can be customized using one of three pairs of included buds to ensure they fit just right. These buds come with the product.
The controls are found on the earpiece to the right. Two buttons control the volume and track changing and one to turn on/off the headphones, answer any calls, and enable music to be played or paused.
On the other side of the right earpiece, there is an LED indicator containing a red or blue light, a microphone that is built-in, and the USB port needed to charge the device. A flexible rubber cover protects the USB port.
A flat wire connects the two earpieces together. The wire is either black or red, based on the model that is chosen. The cable’s flat shape prevents the headphones from tangling if you leave them in your bag or pocket for too long.
When you wear the Q9’s the wire sits comfortably on the back of your neck. The wire has enough length for comfort, but can be adjusted if you feel it is too long. Two flat line buckles are included with the product; allowing the wire to be easily folded when needed to shorten it.
The inclusion of the wire clamp allows the headphones to be easily clipped to your clothing if needed. A mesh bag and the USB cable you need to charge the device are also included.
The absence of an audio cable is the quality that makes these ear buds stands out. Sound Peats Q9 are wireless, but they can connect easily with just about any device through Bluetooth.
This makes them perfect for just about any sporting activity you can like. Cables can hinder your movement as you work out. Phones can fall out of pockets; get in the way, and even break.
The lack of cords means that your phone doesn’t have to be on you while working out. Your phone can be safely 33 feet away from where you are working out. This is because of the Bluetooth capabilities of the ear buds.
Additionally, the Sound Peats Q9’s is extremely lightweight for this type of headphone. This means that they aren’t going to be heavy on your ears. They are also a lot less likely to come out of your ears as you run or jump.
A Look at Quality
The Q9 Wireless Earbuds clearly focus on a design that is easily portable and lightweight. This combined with the price means that expectations were low for the quality of sound. Regardless, these sporty little buds do provide good sound quality.
The sound quality isn’t as excellent as what you would get for some of the other models, but superior to other models in its price range. With relatively clear highs and mids, the bass being well balanced and the timbre being pretty good too; you are getting more than your money’s worth.
The sound quality is surprising for $20 headphones. No, you are not going to have the same quality you would if you spent $200 on a pair of headphones. Realistically, however, they provide good sound quality without breaking the bank.
The call quality is also good with these buds. The Q9’s provides crystal clear communication from the person calling and the person who receives the call. It’s also simple to switch between music and calls by just pressing a button located on the earpiece.
It is said the battery life is around four or five hours. It’s important to realize, however, that usage plays a huge role in this. If you use it all the time and charge when the battery is completely dead, your battery life will shorten.
It is also said that it charges in two hours when completely dead. Over time this may take a little longer but is still pretty impressive.
Should You Purchase the Sound Peats Q9?
The Sound Peats are sporty and affordable. You can enjoy a sporty design, excellent features, and good sound quality for just $20. If you spend a lot of time working out, these are a superb option.
The less you spend on headphones, the more you have to devote to other things in life. You can spend more on your workout equipment, take your kids to the movies, or buy your wife some flowers. There are more important ways to spend your money than the purchase of a $200 pair of headphones.
However, if you want the best sound quality you can get, then these aren’t for you. These provide excellent sound quality compared to others the same price, but not as good as, say, a $129 pair of earbuds would provide.
It’s all about what you want from your ear buds. If you want an affordable pair of ear buds that provide more than you paid, then buy these. If you want earbuds that are the best on the market and provide superior quality all the way around, pull out your checkbook and get ready to spend a little more cash.
If you can live with the sound quality not being top of the line and are looking for something to use while living your active lifestyle; then these are amazing. They won’t get in your way or trip you up. They are also easy to use and for once, you’re getting more than you paid.
However, if you want a top of the line everything; these aren’t the right choice. To have designer ear buds that provide excellent sound quality and a good fit; be ready to shell out some cash. Otherwise, these are easy to use, lightweight, perform well, and are only $20.
