Design and Build
The ESR Wireless Earbuds are available in two colors – black & white. Both made out of plastic, which, works perfectly fine. The way they are put on the ears is great. It is, however, worth pointing out that the earbuds doesn’t come with any IP certification. But there is a carrying pouch if one wants to tuck the whole thing to protect it from rains, etc.
The earbuds are magnetically held inside the charging case, so, one won’t end up losing the earbud as long as they are kept inside the case. The case is rather small and it doesn’t have a clamshell-style design. However, the cylindrical shape doesn’t make it pocketable.
Comfort and Fit
Although the ESR earbuds are slightly bigger than the average wired in-ear earbuds, although they are not heavy. They feel nice and comfortable even when putting in ears for long hours. Also, the earbuds are accompanied with a bunch of extra ear tips. The stock ear tips felt in my ears, but, it is preferred using the Comply foam tips, which are also included in the box.
ESR wireless earbuds have great connection reliability. Coming to sound quality, the earbuds have mixed results. They don’t sound bad by any means, but, they are not exceptionally good either. The ESR wireless earbuds aren’t as loud as I like many earphones to sound, but, they deliver crisp and clear audio quality. There is also a small lack sometimes, but again, that varies by track. They don’t have strong bass, but, neither do a lot of other truly wireless earbuds.
The ESR wireless earbuds includes a Bluetooth 4.2 and Qualcomm’s CSR chip for connection. These earbuds are very reliable when it comes to connection. There will never be a situation when someone is going through the annoyance of having to re-connect the earbuds manually while listening to music. The connection range is also pretty decent.
The battery life on ESR wireless earbuds is where the ESR’s earbuds can be tricky.Although the earbuds live up to the company’s claims of 2.5 hours of playback on a single charge (approx.), but it is not really commendable. Two and a half hours is still relatively less for these earbuds. One can charge them quickly by putting them back into the case (includes 400 mAh battery), but, what if someone is listening for longer period of time?
The charging case can completely charge the earbuds twice, giving an effective battery life of approx. 8 hours when the case is fully charged.
