Great Design and Comfort!
I personally quite like the design of these earbuds. They fit in your ears well and they are light enough that you can pretty much forget that they are there. The earbuds do stick out of the ear slightly which does put pressure on the inside of your ear if you’re wearing an overhear hat or toque. They do have a longer stem, but I personally don’t have any issue with that. These earbuds are also IPX4 water resistance, which means that you can use these earbuds when it is raining, if you’re working out and your earbuds get sweaty, or even if you get these earbuds dirty, you can give them a quick wipe down without the worry of wrecking them. I do find the case of these earbuds a little big and bulky. It’s hard to fit into a pocket and when you do it sticks out. But the 20-hour battery life does make up for the bulky case.
The Great Performance of the ROCCAT Syn Buds Air
The performance of these earbuds are a great option for the price! The bass and clarity of the audio is something that I am really impressed about with these earbuds. Coming in at around $100 USD these earbuds are equipped with big 6mm drivers and they pack a pretty good punch when it comes to bass! These earbuds also have decent noise cancelation. Between the drivers and plastic ear caps, the earbuds should block out the majority of background noise while you’re listening to game play or music. These earbuds also have a low-latency mode which is enabled through the companion app. It gives you a low latency of only 60 milliseconds which will enhance your game play by allowing audio to transfer from your device to your earbuds at lightning speed! The touch controls work very well, and the overall controls of these earbuds are easy to use!
