iFrogz's Impulse Duo doubles down on sound qualityThese lightweight, dual-driver in-ear Bluetooth headphones sound better than a lot of inexpensive wireless earphones -- and they're comfortable.
iFrogz has carved out its niche in the headphone market by making relatively inexpensive headphones that perform as well or better than other cheap headphones. At $45 the Impulse Duo wireless is toward the high end of its in ear Bluetooth headphone line, and features dual drivers in a lightweight design that's comfortable to wear. Like iFrogz earlier wireless in-ears, it's built around the company's signature wireless hub, which features a magnetic clasp and houses the battery, microphone, all the electronics, as well as all the controls. The clip serves. To do on purpose not only does it allow you to attach the remote to your shirt but it keeps the cord wrapped around the remote when you're not using the headphones. This model hasn't been designated as a sports [UNKNOWN] but it is sweat resistant and can be used at the gym/ It comes with a few different sized tips and the buds stayed securely in my ears with the larger tips. And I managed to get it tight sealed to maximize sound quality Battery life is rated at ten hours at moderate volume levels, which is fairly decent. Thanks to the dual six millimeter drivers, this headphone sounds better than both the Summit and the single driver Impulse, but holds it back a bit because you can tell it's a Bluetooth headphone. By that I mean it sounds Sounds a touch dull, also it only performs okay as a headset. I could hear callers well, but a few people I spoke to while I was at the gym complained of hearing too much background noise. Those small gripes aside, the Impulse Duo is a likeable in-ear bluetooth headphone They packs up well and it's easy to carry around in your pocket. I'm David [UNKNOWN] for cnet.com.
