Most cheap earbuds on the market now, on each housing they are built with only a single driver. The idea of dual driver for earbuds are not new yet they didn’t exist in a budget pair until recetnly. IFROGZ announces their dual-driver Bluetooth earbuds, the Impulse Duo Wireless.
The iFrogz Impulse Duo is a lightweight and comfortable in-ear Bluetooth earbud. With its plastic design and compact size, it is no wonder that it has a relatively modest price. This model incorporates a clasp that magnetically clips onto your shirt to position the microphone. This clip also serves as a storage compartment for Bluetooth stuff and battery.
The clip is also used to wrap the cable around the remote during those times when you aren’t making use of the earbuds. This is a great way to prevent tangling of the cable. Additional controls are also provided on the underside of the clip. There you will find the volume buttons, the power button, and the play/pause button.
The Impulse Duo comes in three earbud tip sizes that are meant to ensure a good fit for whoever wears them. These eartips can be replaced by the manufacturer for free if they become worn out.
The Impulse Duo is not for those whose have smaller ears, each bud is equipped with two 6.0mm drivers making its size is larger than conventional size of earbuds.
The iFROGZ Impulse Duo earbuds come in two colors; black and white. Though they aren’t really designated for sporting activities, these earbuds are sweat-resistant, with an IPX-2 rating.
Due to its perfectly fitting eartips that ensure a nice seal, sound quality is maximized. Compared to the iFrogz Summit, the dual 6 mm drivers incorporated into the Impulse Duo ensure a much better sound. The bass is reasonable, the treble and mids are very smooth. Expect to enjoy well-balanced sounds from the Impulse Duo.
However, it’s actually hard to tell that these earbuds use Bluetooth technology, considering the slight dullness in the way the sound plays. Though you will be able to hear people who call you well, background noises interfere with their ability to hear you clearly.
Bluetooth Connection Stability and Battery
Connection to all devices is as easy as you like. Since the Impulse Duo Bluetooth earbuds are not different from other types of earbuds manufactured by iFROGZ, they too have a Bluetooth range of 30 feet. A battery of 10 hours in between charges gives you a long playlist in a steady volume. If your battery runs low, simply use the micro USB port for recharging it.
There are a plenty of options for Bluetooth earbuds out there, but if you like something new about sound and design the Impulse Duo would be worth for a listen.
