A strong brand is built upon the pillar of trust, and trust is gained only through repetitive excellence and improvement in services and products. In April, I got Xcentz Bluetooth sports headphones. My feedback was: next time, send me waterproof headphones, not just water-resistant. And here it is an IPX7 waterproof Bluetooth 5.0 sports earphones for a workout, running, gym and other energetic activities.
With a negligible price difference, Xcentz has elevated its product line. Xcentz is a brand that sets new targets and achieves them effortlessly. This is why it has become a leading iPhone accessories maker and found its place in the good books of many reviewers and experts.
Xcentz xBuds S2 Waterproof Bluetooth Neckband Headphones
The neckband Bluetooth headphones are chosen for multiple reasons. Xcentz xBuds S2 has paid enough attention to details in manufacturing sports headphones, which boast durable battery, flexible material, sweatproof design, and waterproof standards. This product stands true to its claims, and you can use it for a long time.
Bluetooth 5.0 Technology
One of the notable benefits of Bluetooth 5.0 technology is lower power consumption. Many users avoid using Bluetooth headphones just because of their power-hungry nature. Xcentz, along with other Bluetooth 5.0 headphone makers, wants to provide a more powerful option than ordinary Bluetooth earphones.
For music lovers, the latest Bluetooth technology means faster and stable signal transmission. As a result, users get clear sound quality and low power consumption. Speed and range are two significant features of Bluetooth 5.0 technology. On your xBuds S2 headphones, you would like to move around without keeping your Apple devices close at hand.
As mentioned above, Bluetooth 5.0 technology ensures a longer battery life of this headphone. Once charged, the headphones offer eight hours of non-stop music play. Before you use and after unboxing the headphones, charge it fully. If you are running late for the office or gym in the morning, a quick 10-minute charge will give you 70 minutes juice.
IPX 7 Waterproof
A fitness freak doesn’t care for seasons. No matter how severe it is raining, they would go out to run or walk. For such workout enthusiasts, Xcentz has built waterproof Bluetooth headphones. Unlike its previous version of sports headphones, the current one is powered with IPX 7 waterproof standards. So you can always go out to achieve your workout goal without giving respect to the atmosphere.
Xcentz secures full marks for the beautiful and ergonomic design of wireless headphones. Although it is not over-the-ear headphones, it is highly comfortable when you insert the buds. Soft silicone comfortably fits in your ears, and the headphones do not displace even as you are sweating. Xcentz offers you three different ear tips size (Small, Medium, and Large) for personalized comfort and stability.
It is your lightweight neckband, which can be hung around your neck when you are not using the earphones. Magnetic earbuds will attract each other and they securely stay together.
Xcentz has crafted a perfect console of power and volume buttons. What I find amazing is the change of functions. While the short press is meant for changing track in other Bluetooth headphones, Xcentz has assigned this task to long press. It is the short press that turns up or down the volume. This is a perfect example of smart design as people wish to adjust volume more often than they change the track. They usually create customized playlists of their favorite songs, and hence, there is hardly any question of changing tracks.
Siri activation is one of the essentials every user looks for in a Bluetooth headset. Xcentz has done this effortlessly. Press and hold the power button for more than 3 seconds and the headphones will invoke Siri on your iPhone. Next, you know how to use Siri commands on your device. It is one of the best Siri compatible headphones at this price.
That’s all folks!
If you are looking for wireless headphones under $30, Xcentz is the best buy for you. It has everything a fitness aficionado expects from a Bluetooth headset.
