Brainwavz has been making waves in the audio segment since 2008 with their good sounding, well packaged audio products at reasonable prices. Today we get Brainwavz BLU-200 Bluetooth earphones with aptX technology.
What is aptX?
It is an audio coding technology for Bluetooth stereo products which aims to offer better quality audio than standard Bluetooth. In some cases, standard Bluetooth can have a really bad degrading sound quality, especially for stereo music. In order to fix this, aptX was developed so one would get CD quality audio, almost indistinguishable from regular wired headsets. See how aptX works.
Build and Design: 7.5
At first glance, the earphones look a little weird due to the protruding casing. My cousin brother on seeing it called them “mini-missiles”.
However, this design lends itself to the fact that these “mini-missiles” with matt black aluminium body have the earphone drivers, a tiny little battery, charging port and an additional Wing attachment space all within the earphone casing.
The cable is flat and tangle free. Thankfully, the 3-button remote works well with all mobile operating systems, Apple iOS, Android and Windows phones.
