Review: Affordable Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds from IFROGZ

You don't have to spend a fortune for Apple's AirPods. IFROGZ offers a variety of Bluetooth earbuds including the InTone Wireless Earbuds ($29.99) and the Impulse Duo Wireless Earbuds ($44.99). If you do indeed spend that much for the Apple version, you'll be afraid to lose them. The IFROGZ versions are more likely to stay put (and connected) because they share a wire between the left and right earbuds. That wire can coil up around the control box; and thanks to a clever magnetic cable manager, the whole package is nice and small and easy to travel with.

When in use, that magnetic flap can keep the control box in place, so you can pause, play, control volume, and answer phone calls. It's quite clever and useful. I liked how lightweight both of these wireless Bluetooth earbuds are and that the Impule Duo ships with three earbud tip sizes with free lifetime replacement. Both pairs of Bluetooth headphones are quite affordable too.

Pros

  • Lightweight, barely there
  • Three earbud tip sizes (Impulse Duo)
  • Very affordable
  • Cable management with magnetic clip
  • 10-hour battery

Cons

  • Charges via microUSB

Final Verdict

IFROGZ shows that you don't have to spend a fortune for Apple's AirPods.
