Another replacement AirPods or something else entirely?

The question of finding replacement AirPods we have repeatedly raised, but this time another potential competitor of wireless headphones Apple stands out not only because it costs several times cheaper, but in-ear design with increased soundproofing… well, let’s see. What exactly the defendants in our today’s review so interesting? Yes to all. No, seriously. Starting with packaging and ending with the quality of sound from such inexpensive headphones, we did not expect. This model HARPER HB 509 and HB-510, which are an attempt of the manufacturer to assert itself in the segment of these wireless headphones.

First things first: the packaging reminds the box is white and green cover. Inside we meet three characters: earphone, case for charging, micro-USB cable and replacement ear pads.

Headphones than pleased with HARPER when we first met? First, they can be used separately from each other: for example, if you listen to the music, and control the situation. Cover case 510-th model is smoothly opened by pressing a special button on the case looks very stylish. In the case of 509-mi headphones it just disconnects: not the most convenient solution that can be lost, but the soft-touch plastic is doing its job. The earphones themselves more like all the usual wired counterparts: round case, rubber ear pads, the concept is not at all like Apple. By the way, in both the built in buttons that you can use to control playback, answer calls, and enable headphones to first connect them together, and then connect to the smartphone. The model 510 is connected via Bluetooth 4.2, her younger brother — in Bluetooth 4.1

Such a decision maker, I personally found it successful for two reasons: firstly, the headphones are extremely comfortable to wear and they do not drop out, and second, the arc was enough place to accommodate a large battery. And the increase in capacity automatically suggests that it has a positive impact on battery life.

The manufacturer promised that one charge is enough for 4 hours of continuous use headphones ( version HB-510 is the battery life a little more). I quietly listened to them for two days on the way to office and home. By the end of the second day, the headphone is completely dead and had to place them in the charging case, so we are not deceived. Headphones you can charge three times from the case. Although many vendors tend to FIB about the real autonomy of portable devices.

The sound quality is a subjective thing and often depends on obzorschika, although such a stubborn thing, like numbers, too, should not be forgotten. Frequency range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz already said that these headphones can expect impressive “basovitoj”. The resistance at the 510 version twice (32 Ohms vs 16 Ohms) and it sounds more intense than 509-I.

Real sound performance was not worse than on paper. Here you will find sweeping bit of bass, as those same Beats, but lack in the low frequencies you experience. With upstairs is also okay: acoustic music both models have worked adequately. With interchangeable ear pads in the kit if you wish, you can exercise more fine-tuning the sound to get the sound picture, which was the dream.

Proposed in Bluetooth version 4.1-4.2, which is enough to listen to your favorite streaming services in high quality. Works consistently, even for a short time “italiani” were recorded. In terms of practicality even with a strong desire to find fault with was just not happening. Headphones are lightweight and pleasant to touch the side. The headphones have built-in magnets, allowing them to securely “sitting” in the charging case.

The only negative is the earphones are not waterproof, although it didn’t stop me to walk with them during walks in the snow (actually rainy) the streets of Moscow. In the pool and under the shower with them not climb, so as they say, better not to risk it. Oh and one more important point: black color HB-509 looks very advantageous. Headphones so good complete: that can dare to assume that even in the set with a strong suit, they will look organically and very stylish. Model HB-510 a little “fun” by orange accents and looks more youthful.

Whether headphones HARPER a good replacement AirPods? Something they clearly do not reach wireless headphones Apple, but in terms of fit, many may find them convenient. Well, the fact that they cost up to 3 000 rubles for the version 509 , and up to 3 500 rubles for the 510-th model plays a very important role. So if you are searching great and low-cost wireless headphones — in all seriousness I advise you to pay attention to these models.
