|4. Summary

Edifier Lollipods Pro is the first product in the series with a handle-shaped in-ear design to achieve a better active noise reduction effect. The appearance design of the earphone is relatively simple, and the outer side of the earphone handle and the side of the charging case have a raised centerline design. The product volume is not small and the weight is moderate.

In terms of internal circuits, the charging case inputs power through the USB Type-C interface. LPS LP5301B6F supports double overvoltage and overcurrent protection to avoid high-voltage shocks caused by incorrect operation of the charger. SinhMicro SS881AAD Flash MCU integrates charging and discharging management functions, responsible for battery charging and discharging, and supports two-way communication with earphones. The soft pack battery used in the charging case comes from Huizhou Super Poly Power with a capacity of 350mAh. LPS LP6261 is responsible for boosting the battery output to charge the earphones. There is also a Hall element in the charging case to realize the function of connecting when the cover is opened.

In the earphone part, Edifier Lollipods Pro adopts a hybrid noise reduction solution. Two microphones pick up the ambient sound and the sound in the ear canal respectively, and feed it back to the main control chip BES BES2300HP3. There is also a MEMS microphone at the bottom of the earphone handle for call sound pickup. The three microphones are combined to achieve call noise reduction. The call noise reduction algorithm comes from ELEVOC. The headset uses an LDS antenna to transmit signals, and an accelerometer is used to achieve the tapping operation of the headset. The button battery capacity is about 36mAh from MIC-POWER.
