Modern day mobile device usage is always accompanied by excessive media use. Be it video or audio, a lot of people are somewhat comfortable using their mobile phones as a replacement to a portable media player. That being said, it is sometimes important to think about what kind of headset or earphone one is using. And with the advent of wireless technology, the market is now saturated with a number of suitable products to choose from. However, one particular product does stand out above the rest, the Rowkin Bit Charge wireless stereo earphones.
The Rowkin Bit Charge Stereo is the smallest wireless earbuds one can find out there. It is light and very compact. Nevertheless, it is not without fault. Here are some of the pros and cons of choosing the Rowkin Bit Charge Stereo as your wireless earphones solution.
First up, the Rowkin Bit Charge is absolutely tiny. It is incredibly well built and one can see that a lot of thinking went into designing it. Due to its size, of course, it is also very light. So light that one will almost forget wearing one.
In terms of audio quality, although it lacks a bit on the low side, the mid- and high-range are well balanced. Furthermore, you cannot expect for its tiny speakers to actually provide impressive low-end frequency response.
Battery life is moderate, between two and three hours on a single charge. Fortunately, the charging case has an internal 2,100mAh lithium-ion battery that can charge the earphones around 15 times. Also, the charging case has a USB Type-A port so you can charge you mobile device at least one full cycle.
As for the fit, since it is really small, it actually does well on the ears. It does not cause much pain like other in-ear earphones. Perhaps this is mainly because you cannot really use it for longer periods of time. The kit includes three sets of fit-tips: small, medium, and large.
Just like other wireless earphones, it does offer media and digital assistant integrations. Users can pause and resume audio playback with a simple press of a button. And the same goes for Siri or Google Assistant.
Finally, there is the price. By far, the Rowkin Bit Charge Stereo is the cheapest pair of wireless earphones in the market. Selling at $130, it is considerably cheaper than the Apple AirPods.
Unfortunately, it is not all good news on the Rowkin Bit Charge Stereo. The main issue that one will experience is the wireless connectivity. For some reason, the connection between the mobile device and the earphones–especially the right one–is a tad annoying. Thicker clothing can sometimes hamper the connection and leave you with choppy audio playback.
One other major issue is the fact that the earphones do not support stereophonic calls. Only the left earpiece works every time a call is made or received.
Finally, one minor issue is limited button functionalities. Each earphone is equipped with a single button. Once connected, both buttons basically have the same functionalities. Either button can be used to turn the earphones on or off; with long presses. On the other hand, either can also be used to start and stop audio playback as well as launch the mobile device’s digital assistant. Unfortunately, the other two functionalities it does not have is the ability to skip tracks as well as adjust the volume.
Overall, the Rowkin Bit Charge Stereo is an awesome-to-have device. For the most part, it works really well. Furthermore, the dual charge feature can give anyone some peace of mind knowing that they have a spare battery they can use to charge their devices. It is also the cheapest wireless earphones in the market. For more tech updates, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
