Specter Efitz Wireless Earbuds
Music and Podcasts are an essential component to travel for us both, as the long hours on transportation often call for some entertainment to pass the time. A crucial component to this is a good set of headphones or earbuds. The latest trend has been to move towards wireless technology (despite my constant battles with Bluetooth), and so we decided to give the Specter Wireless Efitz Earbuds a try. Specter Wireless is a new company with a concise product line of clean looking headphones, earbuds, and portable speakers. Full disclosure on this post, Specter Wireless provided us both with a set of the Efitz Earbuds at no cost.
Below I’ll breakdown our experiences with the Efitz Earbuds to help you decide if they’re the right wireless headphones for you.
Efitz Earbuds Sound Quality
Our Efitz earbuds arrived in fantastic packaging (I’m always a sucker for good branding and packaging). In the box you find the earbuds, a short charging cable, and several different earbud sizes and shapes. The stock sized earbuds were a perfect fit for both Leeann and me, so we didn’t have a need to try out the others, but I’m confident that even the trickiest ears could find the right fit.
The earbuds did not come with any charge, so after a quick charge (there’s an indicator light that turns blue when they are ready), we gave them our first sound test. Leeann is a classically trained violinist, so she may have more of an opinion on this sort of thing than I do, but the sound quality was great right out of the box. I thought the bass was impressive for such a small package, and overall the mid and high ranges were decent. I thought there was a slight metallic sound to the higher ranges, but nothing that bothered me, and still substantially better than the stock Apple Earbuds.
Efitz Noise Cancelling Earbuds
The Efitz promise noise cancelling, and although I’m unsure whether it is passive or active technology, they effectively cut out all the background noise. We found it difficult to hear each other talking even with no sound playing, and thought that for the noise of a plane these would be fantastic. Since they also have a built in microphone, I also used them for a few conference calls, and for this I was not a fan. I felt like I was yelling into the microphone because the noise cancellation was so good – I couldn’t hear myself talk!
As I mentioned before, the fit of the Efitz is great. They are not going anywhere during any amount of physical activity, even with sweat, so they are the perfect wireless earbuds for athletes. The only complaint is that the box where the microphone, buttons, and battery are housed is a bit heavy, which could be a bit annoying as it bounced around or during yoga poses.
Specter Wireless Efitz Battery Life
The battery life for the Efitz was good for such a small package. I got more than enough out of a single charge, especially if you will be using these primarily for working out. The one issue we had was that there is no auto-off feature, so we would forget to turn them off and thus drain the battery in standby.
Overall, the Specter Wireless Efitz Earbuds are a great option, and coming in at only $95.95, a bargain compared so some of the competitors. Wireless is really the future, and it’s a nice feature to have, especially for working out. We tried to put our earbuds to work, using them for runs on the beach, yoga, listening to music while working, and conference calls. We recommend these earbuds to anyone looking for a good set of active wireless earbuds at a good price.
Our favorite thing about the Efitz is how comfortable they are to wear, that they deliver premium sound without an overly premium price, and the sleek, minimal design. Whether you’re looking for the perfect travel earbuds or something for everyday workouts, the versatility of the Efitz is a perfect match.
