Bluetooth headsets have been around for awhile, but they seem to have been picking up in popularity over the past year. Yes, this does coincide with the fact that more and more manufacturers are making the decision to scrap the 3.5 mm headphone jack on their smartphones, but, to be fair, wireless earbuds also happen to be getting better and better.

As if in an attempt to prove the latter point, Spigen — a company well known for its case collections — has introduced a new set of wireless headphones – the Legato Arc, which promises to impress customers with great sound quality, made possible by high-quality components and contemporary Bluetooth tech.

These are Bluetooth earbuds that are attached to a flexible, ultra-lightweight (1.23 oz / 3 g) neckband. The buds themselves sport 14phi dynamic drivers — fairly large for this form factor — ensuring a deeper bass and meatier mids. A QualcommHD Wireless aptX chip takes care of the audio quality over Bluetooth. The headset also features 3 different EQ settings that you can quickly swap between to fine-tune your listening experience.

On the flexible frame, we have controls for play/pause, skip forward or back, and call up your voice assistant. The buds' cable auto-retracts into the neckband 

With all this wireless tech, battery life is quite important. So, how does the Legato Arc do? According to official specs, you can get an hour's worth of music playback for 5 minutes of charging time. Keep the earphones charging for about 2 hours and you will top them up, giving you 10 hours of music and calls or a total of 600 hours of standby time. Not too shabby!

The Legato Arc by Spigen is currently up for sale and you can nab it for $99.99 off of Amazon. Links are below!

Good to see they support aptx. I might look into these more. Aptx and its variants are important if you want to maintain good sound quality while using the microphone like on a call for example. Only aptx and LDAC support full quality duplex audio over Bluetooth that I know of.
