All the millennials now want everything to be wireless and there are very few people who would go with old school wired 3.5mm audio accessories. In this era of active office lifestyle and constant movement, let it be commuting, working at the office, or just shopping at the mall, we need something which is just in our ears and connected wirelessly to the phone for calls or music or navigation.
The Snokor iRocker Tws earphones are the debut Truly Wireless earphones by Infinix. They are more budget-oriented Truly wireless earphones competing directly to the Redmi Earbuds S at a price of ₹1499. We have been using these TWS earbuds for quite some time now here is our comprehensive Infinix iRocker TWS Review. So, are these earphones worth the money or are better than the Redmi Earbuds S? Let’s find out.
Design & Specifications
The Snokor iRocker buds are made of plastic all around and the shape of the earbuds is Goose Egg shape and has three points of contact with your ear lobe for a secure fit. The sound canal of the earbud itself is at an angle to direct it directly into the ear canal for better sound and noise isolation. These buds weigh around 4.6gms each. For connectivity, they offer Bluetooth 5.0 and the buds come equipped with 6mm driver units.
For protection against the sweat, these buds offer an IPX4 rating that offers dust and water repellence at best and in no way is water-resistant. They are good for your gym sessions and normal daily commute.
The overall package is quite light compared to the usual TWS earbuds that I have used in the past.
There is a tiny LED indicator that tells users when the case is charged or needs a charge and each bud also has an LED indicator to indicate the battery and connectivity status. The LED status lights on each bud blink red when the buds are charging and blue when they are paired with a phone. Also, these Buds are available in two color variants, the black one that we have and there’s also a white color variant.
The earbuds come with 40mAh battery which gives an average of 3hrs of usage which is quite decent for TWS earphones. The charging case has 300mAh battery which according to the company can give about 20hrs of playback with more than three full charges of the earbuds themselves.
The earbuds can fully charge in 80mins and the case can charge in about 110mins. The earphones also have a physical button along with microphones on each side.
As far as the controls are concerned, the Infinix iRocker TWS earbuds have tactile buttons for controls. The earbuds also support the google assistant and have a multi-function button. Press and hold the multi-function button to activate Google Assistant.
Talking about the build quality, the design of the charging case is fine enough but I have concerns about the lightweight plastic. It surely feels a bit fragile and the lid with magnetic hinges too wobbles and feels like it might come apart in a couple of weeks. I am being extra careful with the case of these buds, and I hope I don’t break the lid.
Sound Performance and Features
The Infinix iRocker buds come with Hi-Fi (high fidelity) drivers and Dynamic Bass boost for an immersive and amazing sound experience. The diaphragm is made of Titanium and like any other earphones, the sound becomes more natural after the break-in period of the diaphragm.
The sounds are well reproduced with deep lows and clear highs. The midrange frequency is not that well pronounced and is kind of tiny. Again this is coming from an Audiophile. For the average end consumer, these sound pretty good. The sound quality is crisp, the trebles are decently managed and the highs are acceptable too
The Infinix Snokor iRocker TWS buds have a very warm sound signature for a more energetic sound experience. Overall, I found that the Infinix iRocker TWS earbuds sound as good as any other mid-range TWS earbuds, if not better.
So, are these earphones any good? Yes, they are. Overall, I feel that for the price tag attached to the iRocker, the Infinix TWS earbuds don’t disappoint at all. They have decent sound quality. Battery life is pretty decent and the slow charging speeds and micro-USB charging port are something that I would like to pinpoint. But again, at this price you can’t ask for more.
Priced at Rs 1499, it would be safe to say that the Infinix iRocker is one of the cheapest True Wireless (TWS) earbuds currently available in the market. The audio quality and battery life is quite decent on these buds and you cannot expect anything more for a pair of TWS earphones which cost ₹1499. For the price, you can either go with these or the Redmi Earbuds S.
