We examined the earphones with a OnePlus 7T Pro (Review) and Apple MacBook Air as supply units, with each utilizing the AAC Bluetooth codec.
We began with Forces… Darling by Koop, and fairly loved how detailed the sound was. The gentler drum beats and high-hats sounded crisp and distinct all by way of the monitor, at the same time as the graceful, jazzy vocals took centerstage on this digital jazz quantity. The soulful devices by no means misplaced out, and felt nearly as distinct because the vocals that are normally in focus.
