Anyone looking for a small headset that stays in and still delivers a powerful sound should consider the iClever XFree.
The iClever XFree Mini bluetooth headphones
are a great option for an active lifestyle. They stay in, even when running and they have a great sound, especially for music. The cord is light and so are the headphones so you don’t feel them pulling on your ears. The design on the iClever XFree feels natural and not intrusive when it’s in your ear.
Sound and Microphone
The iClever Free Mini bluetooth headphones
have a built-in 6 mm speaker that delivers a strong sound. These headphones are not completely noise canceling, but they do a good job of coming close. If you have them in and nothing playing, you can still hear people talking to you. That can be nice because you don’t always want to take your headphones out when you’re talking to someone, sometimes you just want to pause your music
Overall, the bass is impressive for such small headphones. They compete with some of my larger headphones. The audio isn’t as sharp as I would like it to be when music is loud, but they’re great for working out since music plays so well. The built-in microphone works well and people could hear me.
With most in-ear headphones, it’s hard to find some that stay in, especially through running or working out. These stay in and the wire is so light you barely notice it’s there when you’re wearing them. I have a few headphone sets that have a heavy wire or heavy buttons that pull on the ear buds when you wear them, so it’s nice to have a pair that doesn’t do that. These headphones also have a magnet in them to connect so they stay secure around your neck. You’d think that since they’re made out of metal they would be heavy, but they’re not at all. No amount of jumping pulled them out of my ears, so that’s something to keep in mind if you use them when you’re active.
The iClever XFree
has a waterproof rating of IPX5. That level means
it can handle sweat and some splashing, but it can’t be completely submerged.
Battery life and Bluetooth
The battery life on these headphones is impressive, especially considering how small they are. I only need to charge them for an hour and a half (sometimes less if I didn’t drain the battery completely) and they’re good for a few days. I can walk around my entire apartment without any interruptions from the Bluetooth connection. Only one time when I went all the way outside but as soon as I was within range, it connected again.
