Hey Lovely Peoples, We’re checking out the Lenovo droplet true wireless earbuds. I want to go ahead and say that this is easily one of the smallest cases I’ve seen on a pair of true wireless earbuds, but it’s also some of the smallest earbuds that I’ve seen so far as well so I can tell where the name droplet came from.
Everything on this is very tiny, and actually, the price right now on these are very tiny as well because they come in retailing around $50, but on Amazon, there is a $25 off coupon if you use our link, which drops the price down by 50% so you can pick these up around $25
We’re going to check out what kind of sacrifices they had to make to get an earbud this small
we’re going to see what comes inside the box and see if it’s actually worth the price
Inside the box, it does come with the usual small, medium, and large silicone ear tips, and I think it’s very important to get the right fit because this is a pair that’s so small you want to make sure that they’re secure in your ear now as far as the charging cable it comes with a USB Type-C cable
Now moving over to checking out the case on these again, I can’t stress how tiny this is. It’s easily pocketable, and it’s easy to carry around and forget that it’s there.
I like that it has a sliding door over the top instead of the standard clamshell design. Now on the back, you can see the USB Type-C input for charging, and then around on the front, you have your four indicator lights that way, you can kind of gauge how much battery life is left on the case
Looking at the earbuds again, this is a very tiny earbud, but I do like the design that Lenovo went with here. It has a larger flat surface because these do use touch controls, and it just makes it easier to tap
Lenovo Droplet : Features and Connectivity
Start with the fact that these have Bluetooth 5.0 and they are an excellent pair of earbuds for media, I didn’t notice any lag with movies and videos.
There was only a slight lag when it came to gaming, and I think that’s very impressive because many earbuds, especially budget earbuds, tend to lag when it comes to media, and I was really impressed with how well these kept up
The IP rating they do come in rated at IPX5, so if you’re looking for a pair to use at the gym or use outside while you’re running, it’s going to be fine against rain or sweat, but this is still not a pair that you’re going to be able to submerge into water
You can use either the left or the right earbud individually if you wish to use only one earbud.
Lenovo Droplet : Battery
Battery life is where I think the first big sacrifice had to be made because of the size. The battery obviously can’t be a large battery in the case, and there’s not a large battery in the earbuds either because, on the earbuds, you’re only going to get around four hours of use, wherewith the charging case you’re only going to get around 10 hours total
Now, this is some of the smallest battery life that I’ve seen on a pair of earbuds, so you kind of have to pick if it’s worth that trade-off to you.
I don’t think many people use their earbuds for more than four hours at a time for many; it may not be that big a deal
Sound on these is a very typical sound uh what I mean by that is it has the typical u-shaped sound signature, which means there’s much focus on the bass and a lot of focus on the treble while leaving the mids kind of in a safe area where it doesn’t get lost in the mix
But it’s not too upfront either, so if you’re somebody that likes a pretty dynamic sound, I think they did a nice job of keeping the bass controlled but still picking up even sub-bass very well
I felt like it had plenty of punch, which was kind of surprising because of the earbud being as small as it is. The treble brought out much detail again. It balanced out nicely with the bass, and that’s with listening to pretty much any genre I even felt like with metal or other genres where there’s a lot going on
It never got muddy or congested, so I was really surprised they were able to pull that off
Now, as far as the sound stage and the sound imaging, it never made me feel like I was closed in because the bass is not overpowering. I felt like I was in a larger room, so the sound had a little bit of space to it.
I had no issues with telling where instruments were coming from, and again, because of the price tag and the size, that’s very impressive now
The touch control has control over everything except the volume. Now I wish this is something that Lenovo would have had on here. You only have the ability to play pause, skip your track forward, and go backwards.
If you want to control the volume, you either have to call your smart assistant or pull out your phone, and for me, I find that to be inconvenient
Now, as far as you guys that like to use your earbuds individually, you’ll be happy to know that you can use either the left or the right, and then as far as
Mic and Call Quality
The microphones on here this is an area I think they did a pretty decent job with, so if you are somebody that likes to use your earbuds for phone calls, I think you’ll be more than happy with these earbuds
It does a really good job of picking up my voice. I think it picks up bass tones pretty nicely.
Overall you can expect a decent call experience from these
As far as my cons with these, it’s really hard to nitpick a pair that you can pick up for $25 bucks, but I will say I wish I had a little bit more battery life, and I really wish they had volume controls that’s the only thing that I would change on these
But again, most people don’t use their earbuds for more than four hours at a time except me
I don’t think many people will have complaints, especially at this price
