Oraimo FreePods 4 Review: Come for the ANC, Stay for the Great Sound Quality

0

Active Noise cancellation on a budget.  Long-lasting true wireless earbuds that can go up to 8 hours of playtime. Heavy bass technology. IPX5 Rating. Type-C quick charge. Three listening modes including transparency mode. Noise reduction in calls. I’m talking about Oraimo’s latest audio accessory.

The company just launched the FreePods 4 which succeed the FreePods 3.

Inside the box, you get:

  • A pair of the earbuds
  • Charging case with Type-C charging port
  • Type-C charging cable
  • Welcome Guide
  • Three pairs of antibacterial ear tips

Getting started on the FreePods 4 requires downloading the Oraimo Sound app for a more personalized listening experience. The app is available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Setting up the FreePods 4 is easy as you simply slide off the case to reveal the earbuds and turn on Bluetooth on your phone to connect through Google fast pairing.

Design

The earbuds fit snugly inside the ear and don’t budge when you are moving around. They are pretty comfortable for long use.

They come with a multi-function touch sensor on the earbud that feels more responsive and you can customise the controls.

Tapping once pauses the media you’re playing. Tapping twice takes you to the next track and tapping thrice takes you to the previous track.

You can also answer a call by tapping once and twice to hang up.

You can also do this inside the Oraimo sound app. It shows you the battery levels of either earbud and the case itself.

You can switch between the three modes under noise control mode. Oraimo active noise cancellation can get rid of up to 30 decibels of noise for a quieter listening experience.

Under the earbud control section, you can customize the functions of different taps on the touch panel.

There’s an equalizer to suit your musical taste.

The Oraimo FreePods 3 come with IPX5 rating which means you don’t have to worry about sweat or rain coming in the way when listening to your favourite tracks or podcasts.

Sound And Call Quality

Sound quality is amazing with the FreePods 4. They come featuring 10mm dynamic bass drivers, composite diaphragms and Oraimo’s Havy Bass algorithm to bring powerful bass for that extra kick in certain tracks. You also get crystal clear mids and highs.

The FreePods 4 come with 4 mic beamforming array and AI deep neural network algorithm to reduce surrounding noise. Calls are clearer and I didn’t hear anyone complain.

Battery Life

The batteries can last up to 7 hours on a single charge on ANC and up to 22 hours of playtime. When ANC is disabled, they can go 8 hours and 27 hours of playtime.

The case supports Type-C fast charging for quick top-ups when you need to.

Verdict

High-quality sound. Responsive touch controls. Customizable music experience. Active noise cancellation and long-lasting battery. All these features make the Oraimo FreePods way better than you expected. I highly recommend you get them especially if you’re coming from the FreePods 3 or you’re on the lookout for budget earbuds that don’t compromise on quality.

They beat the predecessor since they last longer, have better and improved audio quality and the addition of Active Noise Cancellation mode make them my top pick for budget TWS earbuds.
