The exterior packaging is a typical black box, with white/blue text. From the front, we’re shown a clear shot of the product, being Bluetooth they are compatible with IOS and Android phones. The backside of the box demos the functions which we’ll cover soon. You’ll also find a web address and email for support, around the sides the key numbers are found. The Q11 will last 180 hours in standby and can operate for up to 5 hours. This is more than enough for your average gym session or workout!
Inside the box, I was pleasantly surprised at what’s included with the Q11. A Black solid, carry pouch contains all the extras. Many ear cups (8) are bundled, to cater for different ear sizes. Some of which are designed for audio only, while the others are optimized for voice calls. A USB Cable for charging, which takes about 2 hours to achieve a full charge.
A user manual is also included. The layout, content is very detailed and first time user-friendly.
[First Look & Impressions]
This sample we have is the Black/Red Version, the design is very well executed. Finish and overall quality are perfect, with no flaws in sight. The actual usage may confuse some, it’s a rather simple yet brilliant design. The bar that locks around the ear is very poseable, catering for multiple shapes and sizes.
The bars lock around the back of the ear nicely, I found them 100% comfortable, and no irritation took place. They aren’t kidding about being lightweight either.
Being a compact product, with so many features. How did sound SoundPEATS manage to keep the Q11 user-friendly? The USB port for charging, is located on the right earbud, and is covered with a rubber tab. Ensuring no sweat, or outside elements may enter. A tiny but useable LED indicator shows what mode the device is currently in at any given time, such and low battery.
The actual control unit, has 3 simple buttons and each offers multiple functions. To switch between them, is a case of single pressing or holding the said buttons. Switching volume, taking calls and other tasks is very easy to achieve
The adjustable buckle is a stroke of genius while I didn’t find the slack cable, between ear buds to be a nuisance as such, I can picture sports related activities, where you’d want the cable neatly tightened around the back of your head, and this is achieved in seconds. Function wise, the Q11 offers everything you’ll need Th learning curve, of how to do what, is short and painless!
[Usage & Comfort]
The Q11 has been used daily now, and I’m now very familiar with the product. As we don’t focus on performance alone, this period ensures durability and comfort testing too. The core idea of having some sort of additional grip isn’t groundbreaking. I’m sure we’ve all seen similar products, and I’ve used a few myself. I always have, found them to be uncomfortable and over longer periods of time, and just not practical. The Q11 is the exception. Not only are they very comfortable to wear but they work, in a sports environment too
Performance is 100% subjective, as we all have different perceptions and expectations. I used the product with music, gaming and for many phone calls. The overall audio was surprisingly good. An adequate amount of bass and treble is present, and volumes levels very high, That’s where the product does struggle, with a noticeable loss of quality, and a static side effect. The average user, won’t be subjected to this, however, and the reality is that nobody should listen to music at high volumes…
We would like to thank SoundPEATS for providing the review sample, and eagerly await more from them, in the near future!
