At the press conference on April 22, in addition to the new flagship in face of the Meizu 15, there were two Meizu headsets unveiled at the same time. As you remember, one of them was the much-talked Meizu HALO Laser Bluetooth Headset priced at 999 yuan ($157), while the other is the Meizu POP Wireless Earbuds priced at 599 yuan ($79).
We have already managed to review the former model. Now we are going to take a look at the latter and get acquainted with its key features. The Meizu POP Wireless Earbuds looks like the Apple’s AirPods and Samsung’s Gear IconX but it doesn’t have their high price tags. It’s more compact also.
The POP comes in white with a matching case that doubles as a charger. The earbuds are light, weighing just 5.8g each. They also have an IPX5 level waterproof design. Thus, it can also be used normally on rainy days. Due to the excellent design, the Meizu POP fits snugly in the ears and can be worn while exercising.
The outside provides touch control interaction, which can be used to pause, play, or change songs. It can also be used to answer/reject calls, or wake the voice assistant. The earbuds connect via Bluetooth 4.2. Waking the Meizu voice assistant requires a phone running on Flyme 7.0. However, it can be different for those using other brands.
As for the internal use, there are omnidirectional microphones, enhanced antennas, and dynamic sound units. At the same time, the Meizu POP Wireless Earbuds is using the new Clarity System. The sound quality is raised. Inside, it sports an 85mAh battery that lasts 3 hours on a single charge, in comparison to the AirPods’ 5 hours. The charging case provides an additional 12 hours of battery life via its own 700mAh built-in battery. The case itself can be recharged via a USB-C port or can be placed on a wireless charging pad.
