Wire­less Com­fort

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH - By Nandagopal Ra­jan

THE HEART-SHAPED Sony W-series walk­mans had a revo­lu­tion­ary de­sign that will not be for­got­ten eas­ily. So it was not dif­fi­cult to see where Amkette got its inspiration for the Slix range of Blue­tooth head­phones. But these ones can’t store or play any con­tent by them­selves.

The build qual­ity is good, but there are cer­tain parts that seem a bit too pla­s­ticky. On the left side are but­tons to skip songs to and fro. On the other side is a tog­gle but­ton that ad- justs vol­ume as well as ac­ti­vates the Blue­tooth pair­ing.

The de­vice is very con­ve­nient to use as it gets rid of the wires that can be a pain when you are try­ing to en­joy your favourite songs. We tested it dur­ing a jog in the park and it stays in place quite com­fort­ably. You can eas­ily an­swer calls us­ing the but­tons on the ear­piece.

The au­dio qual­ity is very de­cent. The en­tire fre­quency range was quite prom­i­nent and clear. The head­set does not seem to be par­tial to bass as most of its con­tem­po­raries. We sug­gest the vol­ume lev­els be kept at around 80 per cent as the de­vice can go be­yond the vol­ume in the source de­vice. This also means the vol­ume tog­gle is not like a re­mote and you can­not ad­just the vol­ume on the phone from the ear­piece. Buy this if you make a lot of calls on the move and also like to lis­ten to songs from the phone.
