Gadgetverge Audio Wireless Earphones Hands-on
We’ve reviewed a rugged audio speaker from up-and-coming Gadgetverge last month, and it’s now time to take another audio gear to the spot. This one is the Gadgetverge Audio Wireless, a pair of in-ear headphones that sport a simple, no-nonsense design for under a grand. Can it be your next budget headphone? Here’s a quick look.
The box comes with the device itself, a plastic containing more earbud tips, ear fins for more stability, a short micro USB cable, a mesh bag to store all those in, and a user guide. The Bluetooth headphone doesn’t stray away from designs of those from AWEI with flat cords and a single structure for the battery and navigation keys.
Three buttons are here — the uppermost and lowermost ones are for volume and skipping tracks, while the middle serves as the main button for powering the device on and off or answering calls. There are three thin holes at one end for the LED notification light, while removing a rubber flap at one side reveals the micro USB port. A cord adjuster is also present should you need to shorten the length for a more comfortable use. Should it fall while traversing roads on a morning jog, there are additional tips and fins you can use.
Despite its somewhat slippery characteristic, the pill-like body that offers navigation controls is simple to navigate and operate. You may find the English voiceover a bit odd but other operational instructions are quite easy — turn the headset on, pair it with your mobile device, and start listening to any type of multimedia content on your phone. Holding the volume up moves to the next track while holding the volume down returns to the previously played song.
Listening to it is just as decent as others in this price range, but some may find a lack of clarity in the bright mids and highs as well as below average details. It delivered good, dynamic bass like when we played this song and offers decent balance, rich trebles, and good space and dynamic range. Noise isolation is not 100% as we can still hear a lot in noisy environments. Its water resistance sure helps when we jog around our place in the morning,
The headphones lasted for three to four hours in a single charge which is understandable due to the small area they can place a battery in. You’ll notice it when you’re fully enjoying orchestra music and the headphones just sent out a warning to recharge it as soon as you can. Recharging back to full takes around 45 minutes to an hour.

I’ve used a lot of wireless headphones myself, and Gadgetverge delivers a bang-for-the-buck wireless audio experience with their own pair of earphones with a Php899 price tag to boot.
