Recently, Baseus released its first dual-mode wireless connection TWS earbuds – Baseus AeQur G10. Support Bluetooth 5.3 and LE Audio transmission protocol (dongle), with the full link 25ms ultra-low latency. At the same time, it support dual-mode coexistence, and can connect two devices – when one device is playing games, the other device will automatically switch when a call comes in.
Baseus AeQur G10 support game sound effect mode, and through Baseus fixed-point positioning acoustic technology (BPT), it can truly restore the movement trajectory of the sound, bringing a sense of hearing as if you were on the scene. It also supports live music mode, through Baseus self-developed spatial sound effect (BISA), to create a stereo sound effect of the music scene. In terms of calls, it is equipped with 4-MIC call noise cancellation technology, which can enhance human voice in real time, filter environmental noise, and bring high-definition voice call effect.
The earbud has a single battery life of up to 7 hours, and the comprehensive battery life of 25 hours. Support Baseus instant flash charging (BRC) – charging for 10 minutes, listening to music for 2 hours. In addition, through the Baseus APP, functions such as function control, preset adjustment, and map positioning can also be performed.
