Pamu Slide Plus: The Battle of Cheap Segment Sports Headphones

When it comes to sports headphones, people think of Bose, Jabra or Beat with sporty headphones with rugged design and water resistance, and the price also makes those who want to buy also have to “run”. .

So today we try to compare a pretty strange sports headset model is Pamu Slide Plus with other two true wireless headphones Bose SoundSport Free and Jabra Elite Active 65t. The Pamu Slie Plus is a true wireless headset that holds talks with a record-breaking $ 6 million on Indiegogo. What is this headset singing and does it compare to the upper class?

About the charging box, the Pamu Slide has a unique appearance with a nice slider design but the box is quite heavy and bulky. The Jabra box I find the best because it is compact both horizontally and vertically, Bose’s box is quite weird because it follows the oval shape and is long. However, I feel Bose and Jabra’s boxes open up not high-end. Out of the 3 charging boxes, I prefer Pamu Slide because it looks the best and the most convenient.

The headphone design of the Pamu, I think is the best of the three because it is quite similar to Apple AirPods, a design that is easy to wear even when exercising or you wear in normal though. The housing of this headset is a bit big but it is comfortable to wear. Two big brothers Bose or Jabra have a sportier design so the tubers are quite large, not for you who have ears too small. Especially I do not like the appearance of the Bose at all, does not look as beautiful as the other two ears.

In terms of wearing experience, the ear grip of all three headphones does very well in accordance with the criteria of sports headphones. I have headbang, exercising quite hard enough to “almost break my neck” and still not falling out. However, at the beginning I shared, Pamu Slide felt the easiest to wear, the most popular and the two representatives from Bose and Jabra were harder to wear and especially not for those who have small ear tubes.

About sound quality: This is the most important point when buying headphones. Jabra gives us a fairly balanced sound quality. Bass is not too heavy and not too overwhelmed, the mid strip is separated and quite bright, easy to listen to, the soundstage is not too good. Generally plump, regular and good. Pamu Slide has a sound quality that is only a bit inferior to Jabra, one thing that makes me quite surprised when the product is cheap but not much different from the more expensive products. The sound of Bose is also very good but the bass is slightly overwhelming, lightly pressing the low range and the high band is a bit drowned.

About the ability to talk: both Jabra and Pamu have up to 4 conversational microphones including 2 environmental recording mic and 2 voice recording mic. Pamu’s design makes us a little better for conversation than Jabra. And the mic on Bose is really just like fireproof when compared to the other two products.

Connectivity: Pamu and Jabra both support Bluetooth 5.0, but Pamu is better when there is a Qualcom QC3020 audio chip for stable connectivity and less power consumption. The Bose is a bit sad when only equipped with Bluetooth 4.1. In addition, the Pamu earbuds also supports the APTX standard for reducing the latency of the headset to give users a more enjoyable experience.

About the battery: Pamu according to the company announced up to 60 hours of use. I used it for 3 days without running out of battery. This is a much superior result than the 15 hours of use on the other two models. Even the continuous use time is also 10 hours, up to 3 times that of Jabra and Bose. Pamu’s water resistance is also better with IPX6 standard.

About the price: Pamu Slide is the cheapest product compared to the other 2 products. Pamu Slide only cost about $129 when compared to Bose and Jabra.

So, after the criteria for evaluating whether a headset is good or not, I am inclined to the Pamu Slide because of the features and sound quality that this product brings, accompanied by a much more “fragrant” selling price.
