We have already reviewed Wings Lifestyle Bluetooth ear bud a few days ago. And we were impressed by the quality of the sound and built of the product.
The Wings Powerpods is a new product from the company. Though the box price is INR 9499, the product is available at INR 4,500 on amazon.
Wings Powerpods is a Bluetooth earbuds set with an unique case that also acts as a powerbank. The product is IPX5 water resistant, has Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and promises 20 hrs of playtime.
The box is standard red and black with Wings branding, the same one we earlier saw in Wings Touch.
Inside you get the usb to micro usb data cable, user manual and a few extra earplug caps.
The built quality in great. The “Designed in India” tag on the box makes us proud.
What's most impressive about the Wings Powerpod is the look. The case has looks like a miniature version of your sunglass holder. With a digital display case, this looks better than the rest of the cases in the market. The digital display is functional too. It shows you the amount of charge left in the case. This is a helpful functionality since you will know when to charge the case.
The case also comes with an added functionality of being a power bank. This means that apart from being the charging case for the earbuds, the inbuilt 2500 mAh battery can also charge up your mobile phone. This can come handy in emergency situation.
However, this extra bit of functionality comes at a cost. Understandably, the Wings Powerpods weighs like a powerbank should. So, if you are looking to tuck this in your pockets while going out, you will find it a little less comfortable as compared to other earbuds.
The buds inside compliment excellent built quality of the case in which they are kept. The ear buds have nice ring light to them. Both of the earbuds connect to each other automatically once taken out of the case. Both the earbuds come with touch sensitive surface which means you can pause and play music with a single tap without having to unlock your mobile phone. If you tap thrice it can activate Siri or Google assistant – another functionality if you intend to use it as a Bluetooth headphone while driving.
The charging case, in one full charge the case manages to charge the buds 10 times. We managed to get around 6 hrs of playtime from the buds in one charge. That, however, depends on the volume at which you play your music.
The quality of music is bass heavy. The clarity is good. The inbuilt microphone also does a decent job.
We tried the earbuds on a nearby park. The noise isolation was fantastic. The Bluetooth connectivity worked well till approximately 30 feet and then noise started breaking up.
In a crowded market of sub-5000 bluetooth earbuds, Wings Powerpods will surely stand out for being nice looking, functional and offering something extra.
