Whenever i either get on my treadmill to run a few miles (unfortunately not so often nowadays) or when I’m on foot going someplace there's but one device that always complements my smartphone a good pair of wireless earphones/headphones. As expected i almost always pick a pair that features ear hooks and thus is not going to fall easily (there are some however that are quite secure even without ear hooks) and to date all the people i know who go running, hiking or even lifting weights at the gym do the same exact thing (i even know some women who are into yoga and pole dancing who use such earphones). Now there are many Bluetooth earphones in the market that feature ear hooks but not nearly enough that combine good build quality with acceptable build quality and crisp/accurate audio. SoundPEATS may not be one of the well-known and established manufacturers but they have a good number of earphones, headsets and speakers in the market so since i was curious to see how their products performed today I’ll be testing their Q11 Sport Bluetooth Headphones.
Founded in December 2010 and registered its own brand “SoundPEATS”, SoundPEATS Audio. is mainly engaged in designing, researching and developing acoustic products. As a professional design and production company, we are mainly engaged in acoustic products, such as middle and high-end music earphones, wireless earphones, water speaker, sound boxes, Bluetooth and so on. When our brand "SoundPEATS" expands at a great speed, we also establish long-term cooperative relations with some companies who produce world famous brand of headsets. Our company has been growing steadily, and maintained the growth rate of 1.5 to 2 times although the global economic environment deteriorated.
The Q11 Sport Bluetooth Headphones are rated IPX Level 4 (splash/sweat-proof) and feature Bluetooth v4.1 connectivity (up to 33 feet/10 meters range) with EDR (enhanced data rate), multiuse technology (supports up to two simultaneously connected devices), CVC 6.0 noise cancellation technology, CSR aptX codec support (high-fidelity audio), rechargeable lithium-polymer battery pack (up to 5 hours of audio playback and 180 hours standby), in-line controller and a built-in microphone. What makes the Q11 ideal for use by people at the gym or on the go however (aside its IPX4 certification which is very important since I’ve had expensive wireless earphones fail when i was sweating on the treadmill) is its flexible ear hooks which make it nearly impossible for them to fall off. SoundPEATS doesn't state the size of the drivers used nor their specifications but after taking a closer look we feel they used 8mm ones.
