What’s in the Box?

With a cheap price tag like this, we don't expect any kind of accessories. But Anker surprises us with what they have provided with the package.

  • Pair of Anker SoundBuds Slim
  • Four pairs of silicon ear tips and three pairs of ear hooks
  • A carrying pouch
  • USB Cable
  • Shirt clip and flip clip to adjust the cable length

Design And Comfort

At first glance, you can tell that these are the lightweight Bluetooth Headsets are available in the market. When the Earbuds are fitted with Ear tips and ear hooks they will securely fit into the years and can wear them more time very comfortably.

If you remove Anker SoundBuds Slim from ears they will stick together with a magnet. The chord is just about size what we need, but a little bit longer may be helpful. The remote is placed near the right earbud.

Form the design and comfort point of view they are good. With a weight of 15 g, we can actually forget about them that they are actually in our ears. IPX5 rating will be got your back when you hit the gym.

Features

Expecting a lot of features from a 25$ Bluetooth Headphones is a little bit too much. They have useful features like a magnetic hookup and remote control to change the tracks and it also houses the microphone for calls.

We don’t get this inline controller in most of the basic Bluetooth Headphones, but Anker got you covered with it. A long press on volume up / volume down buttons can change the track to Next / Previous.

Connectivity

On the connectivity department, Anker SoundBuds Slim is powered by Bluetooth 4.1 and can store up to 8 devices. The connection is good for a fair amount of distance, hiccups will occur if the distance increased a little bit. If you want to use them with your phone, we recommend you to keep them as near as possible. If the rage is logger it also going to affect the battery life.

Sound Quality And Noise isolation

Finally, we came to the most important point sound quality of Anker SoundBuds Slim. For the basic headphones off this price range, they sounded surprisingly very well in lower volumes. Bass lacks a little bit of punch in it. If the volume is increased to higher levels bass lacks clarity and treble sound so harsh. These are definitely not for the people who listen to music at higher volumes. If you listing to music at medium volume levels you won’t complain that much.

The only noise isolation it has from the ear tips only. If you found the perfect size for your ears they can isolate some amount of nose, but most of the times we can hear the outside noise in crowded places. It is also a good thing when you take them to the running.

Battery

Well, Anker said that it will give you 7 hours of playback time when playing music with 60% volume levels. The inbuilt 110 mAh battery will give mixed output according to how you use them. If used in higher volume levels it only gives 3 hours of playback time.

Pros

  • Exceptional price  
  • Good battery backup when used with minimum volume levels

Cons

  • Terrible sounds harsh at higher volume levels
