So I had an opportunity to check out the new PaMu Slide Wireless Earbuds. They have some pretty cool features that I’ll breakdown for you.
First thing is you have a fairly durable charging case with a USB-C connector. This holds your earbuds and makes charging then very easy. The cover slides open and and the earbuds magnetically sit in place to charge. The LED comes on immediately to let you know they are connected and charging. They case itself is a battery and once fully charged, can be disconnected and will charge the earbuds multiple times before it needs to be plugged in again.
The other cool thing about the base, when you turn it upside down you can wireless charge your phone. This took me a couple tries to figure it out as it wasn’t very clear in the instructions, but now I know and it’s a pretty handy feature. The case isn’t super compact, but I’d take durability over compact any day.
Now for the earbuds. These are fairly comfortable and used them for an hour or so per sitting. Battery life is 10 hours per earbud per charge. I have yet to test the longevity of the batteries, but I’ve used them for hours and barely but a dent in their charge. They have a IPX6 sweat/water resistance, so they are great if your an active user and they don’t fall out of your ears. At some point I’ll be able to test them on the bike to see how well they work with wind whipping by.
The controls on the earbuds took a little practice, but was able to get a hold of them pretty quickly. I can play and pause my music, adjust volume, use voice assistant, and accept or reject calls. They connect automatically to your phone using bluetooth 5.0 and have really good range and clarity. I can have my phone in my office and walk down the hallway to the studio and remain connected without issue.
I’ve only used them a few times for phone calls. Audio on my end was great but during one of my phone calls, the person on the other end kept hearing a ‘clicking’ noise. Since this only happened once and didn’t occur during my other calls, I think this had more to do with the cell signal than the earbuds.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with these and they have replaced my old wireless earbuds. If you’re interested in picking up your own pair, Click Here to check out their Indiegogo Page.
