Erato Apollo7 Wireless Earbuds Review
Whether your phone carries a headphone jack or not, wireless headphones are about to take over the audio market. They are not new to the consumers, but unlike products which had made big promises and have failed to deliver the same, Apollo 7 offers you a very simple and impressive hardware with just the right combination of features without making any conciliation.
Created by Californian Company Erato, these earbuds are the best pair in the market, at least for now. The earbuds are about four grams and water- and sweat-resistant. One thing to note about these earbuds is that the portion which goes into your ear is a little large – those who have trouble using earbuds in general will not find these any easier. Adjustment is important, not just for security but because sound quality depends momentously on how well these earbuds fit into your ears.
To turn on the Apollo 7, you need to hold down the button for a second and that’s it. Also, if you turn it on while you wear them, you could hear the built-in voice saying “power on.”
Battery technology is not good enough to keep such a small device running for not longer than 3 hours. However, you can recharge them in their case and keep using it.
Talking about the sound quality, the Erato Apollo 7 use a micro-sized composite driver which is quite like a tiny version of the driver in your home speakers or over-the-ear headphones – and hence, the bass effect is remarkable. It’s very profound and clear, yet not overshadowing.
In the box you would get a speaker, a microphone, Bluetooth support and wireless charger. The Apollo 7 case is equally designed like the earbuds and wears a sleek aluminium frame which would fit easily into your pocket.
The charging dock slides with an easy click and each earbud cracks in without any trouble; thanks to the 360-degree charging pad. There’s also a built-in microUSB port for recharging the case and an indicator light.
Apollo 7 is a project taken up by Erato on the crowd-funding platform kickstarter and is available for $299.9 in space gray, silver, gold or rose gold with a matching charging case. You can however wait for Apollo 7 to become available on e-retail websites and make your purchase.
