The Cygnett FreePlay cordless and wireless in-earphones represents good value with its $130 price point. Cygnett is a good Aussie maker with a reputation for producing affordable quality tech products.
But how did they actually rate when put to the test? We put our ears to work to find out.
The technology is easy to use. We liked the cover on the charge box, in which the two earpieces connect together using Bluetooth, which you need to connect from your smartphone to make the connection.
Needless to say, you need to use a smartphone to be able to use this gadget. Once you’ve set up the connection it is a truly wireless solution to keep you connected on the go.
The earphones are quite big and comfortable to wear, and the tip is made from silicone with flexible ear stays and a button on the earpiece to turn it on or off. The single press button will help you navigate music, adjust volume and even answer calls thanks to the dual built-in microphone.
Once charged, you will get a good three hours of talk time or music listening time.
What is handy is the portable battery case will quickly recharge your earphones twice, offering an additional 6 hours of playtime. The case is also good for providing protection for the earphones and seems more hygienic.
With a Bluetooth range of up to 10 metres, and an extensive list of compatible devices including the latest smartphones, tablets and Bluetooth compatible notebooks, you’ll never want to leave home without your FreePlay Earphones.
If you use your earphones for exercise, it is good to know it uses sweat resistant technology.
The Cygnett FreePlay Bluetooth Earphones are available in two colour options, black or white. They retail for $129.95 and are available now at www.cygnett.com.au and leading retailers.
