The sub 5000 bluetooth ear buds market is getting crowded and quite competitive with some very good options around. So, it’s very difficult for a new entrant to make a mark straightway.

The Product Brief

Wings Touch 2019 is a set of wireless earbuds that uses the latest Bluetoooth 5.0 technology to stay truly wireless. The earbuds come neatly packed in a compact case that also acts as the charging kid for the ear buds. There is Touch Sensor Controls and Stereo calling from both earbuds. 

The charging case comes with a 500 mAh battery and the individual ear buds comes with 45 mAh battery. The ear buds also has a IP rating making it sweat proof and a perfect gym companion.


Unboxing

The red and black box with the Wings Logo on top is attractive. What caught our eye was the bold declaration on the back of the box - Proudly Designed In India. And we do agree that Wings Touch designs are indeed are something that the company can be proud of.  



Inside the box you get 2 earbuds,1 charging case,1 USB charging cable,3 pairs of ear-tips,1 user manual.


The 10 x 10 x 5 cm case looks like a miniature sunglass holder. With the buds inside it weighs roughly around 168 gms. The smooth matte finish and the clamshell design of the case evokes quality.

In front is a button to flip open the lid and two LED indicators to indicate charging of the earbuds. On the backside, a USB port for charging the case and a single blinking LED light to show the charge level of the case itself. 

The ear buds are equally good looking. The earbuds and the compartment inside themselves are magnetic, so they stay in place while charging.



The touch controls are sturdy. The form factor and the fittings within the ear are good too, however it is a matter of individual ergonomics and preferences.



The price on the box reads INR 7499. However, we could find the product listed on Amazon and Myntra at a price as low as INR 2,999.


Performance

 The pairing of the ear buds with each other or with a device is hassle free. You will only have to notice the blinking of lights carefully to understand the pairing mode. The touch sensors are responsive and worked smooth every time we picked up a call or changed tracks.

The earbuds also has built in microphone. Despite the small size, the calls were clear on both sides. 

We tried activating Google Assistant on Android and Siri on iPhone using the touch panels of ear buds. The experience was flawless.

It is not fair to compare performance of an earbud to a headphone. But Wings Touch does a pretty decent job when it comes to music. The highs and lows are good. However, like most products in its range, Wings focuses more on the bass. The output suits rock metal and EDM, something the company also claims in their press note. However, if you have a musician’s ear, you may want to tweak the equaliser a bit to set it as per your liking.

Playing continuously we managed to get over 4.5 hrs of battery life from the ear buds which is pretty decent. The case comes with a 500 mAh battery and supposedly can charge the earbuds around 4 to 5 times.


Verdict

If you are looking for a bluetooth earbud, Wings Touch can surely stay in your list of consideration. It looks great and performs equally well.
