So does the XG12 Mini wireless earbuds tick all the boxes? Well on paper the earbuds are a fantastic product and when in hand the headphones are pretty great too for £49.99. Most high-end Earbuds like Bose cost over £100. So in comparison £49.99 isn’t a bad price.
However, in my opinion, I would save up a little more and invest in earbuds that provide higher sound quality.
As the mini wireless earbuds, may be the best for a non-brand that I have come across. But the sound department was a little disappointing.
When listening to music the quality is much better than when taking a call. This sounded slightly muffled and quiet, which to say isn’t exactly the worst thing. The Bluetooth connection was great and did not waiver when in use for me.
But if you are looking to invest in high-quality sound. I would recommend you save up and buy one that has better specs.
I would have preferred headphones that have auto stop/ pause when you remove the earbuds from your ears so that you can pick up where you left off when you place them back in.
The lack of volume control also wasn’t the best-selling point. But if you’re not fussed about these small details then these earbuds are for you. It really depends on the user and what they will need them for.
Overall, I would say the product was fine but could be better. But if you cannot spend £100 or more and cannot save the extra pounds then this is an ideal device for you.
I give this product a 3-star review because the XG12 Mini Wireless Headphones are;
- Easy to use for all users
- Great for gifting purposes
- Lightweight and comfortable
- Impressive battery life
- Stable Bluetooth connection
- Lacking in sound quality
- Lacking in volume control
