Features and tech specifications

First, the Bluetooth capability – with thirty feet of cord-free Bluetooth, you are literally hands-free when using this accessory, allowing you the freedom to possibly complete any other tasks at hand, or simply sit back and enjoy the music.

With its smooth in-ear design, the earbuds fit nice and snug and your ears are treated to all the music you ever wanted to hear with good audio quality. With a weight of 24 grams, toting around these earphones is anything but a hardship.

Taking the earphones a notch up from their predecessor, the Ink’d Wireless has a Bluetooth 4.1 interface and can be easily paired with your Bluetooth-enabled device.

The manufacturer claims to have up to an eight-hour rechargeable battery on a single charge, which makes it great to tote around. Further the low-profile flex collar is a good fit around the neck, and is lightweight too, adding to the user’s comfort. Tuck it away in your pocket or bag as it packs up to one-third of its size.

Further, the built-in mic and remote offers you call, track and volume control which allow you to manage your calls and music efficiently. Headset controls also allow you to skip to the next/ previous track.

At the price point (USD 50.00 and under) this accessory is affordable and for bass lovers, you can be assured of music that does not distort.

What you need to know

The Ink’d Wireless does not support active noise cancellation (but the ear gels are noise-isolating), or a boom mic. While the audio performance is excellent, it does not offer surround sound.

The package contains:

  • Earbuds
  • Two silicone gel eartip sets (small and medium sizes)
  • Micro USB to USB charging cable

Yay or nay?

They’re Skullcandy – nothing to complain about there! Priced in India at Rs. 3,999 they are feature-rich and definitely worth the price if you really enjoy your music. Check them out online or at a store close to you.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
