IFROGZ Airtime hands-on: True wireless earphones on a budget1
We know that true wireless earbuds are accessible on just about any budget, but they typically have some caveats about them, especially those that are priced below $100. From ZAGG, the company known for the line of InivisibleShield screen protectors, as well as some neat Bluetooth keyboards for mobile, the IFROGZ Airtime Truly Wireless Earbuds are inexpensively priced to make them an intriguing option for those on a tighter budget.
Usually, earbuds in this price range offer very few features, but the IFROGZ Airtime packs a decent offering. Some of the main highlights include 3 hours of battery (with an extra 12 hours using the battery charging case), Bluetooth 5.0, a sweatproof IPX4 rating, and three preset equalizer settings. Much like most true wireless earbuds, they go into pairing mode as soon as they’re out of the box for the first time, making the setup process a snap.
Constructed mostly of inexpensive plastic, they have a decent and comfortable fit thanks in part to how the ‘wings’ keep them securely in place. They’ll handle workouts relatively well, including exercises that involve intense movement. So far, they sound decent and clear with strong volumes. We wouldn’t say they’re extraordinary, but at least they don’t sound muted or sharp. And if you’re in a pinch for battery, charging them for 10 minutes will yield approximately 1.5 hours of playtime.
Naturally, the most attractive thing about IFROZ Airtime Truly Wireless Earbuds is the price point – a mere $60, which is a fraction of the cost of most mainstream earbuds. The savings by itself is astounding, but we’re eager to really uncover how they perform long term.
