“CG” in FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth earbuds is a combination of the initials of Cigar Guitar. It is a way for FIIL to pay tribute to African American musicians because they used cigars and guitars to create blues music that is popular all over the world. Today’s music styles such as rock and hip-hop.
The design of FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth headset black box combined with golden text is full of sense of grade, showing high cold and precious temperament, it is absolutely gift-grade packaging.
In addition to the regular configuration, FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth headset has specially designed a metal guitar case, which is also a kind of respect and love for blues music. The headphones are placed in a metal guitar case. The overall shape is like a guitar, and the concept is very clever.
FIIL CG is designed by German designaffairs, Blues color matching, very metallic. The upper cover of the charging case uses the same level of supercar nine anodic (oxidation) nano-coating process, with strong texture, the edges and corners are treated very smoothly, the hand feel is excellent, and the enjoyment of handicraft level. However, the charging case skylight design seems to lack a certain sense of security in terms of dustproofing.
The triangular prismatic design of FIIL CG earphones shows a German-style toughness. The earphone material also uses the same level of supercar nine anodic (oxidation) nano-coating process.
The top of the earphone handle is a noise pickup microphone and indicator light, and the call microphone is located at the bottom of the earphone handle. FIIL CG adopts ENC double-mic noise reduction design, the noise reduction depth can reach up to 21dB, and through the FIIL intelligent algorithm, the sound is always clear and clean in a noisy environment. The touch area of the FIIL CG headset is designed at the convex upper edge, and the edges and corners are more obvious when touched. “FIIL” on the edge is a low-key brand presentation. The charging contacts are hidden on the inner edge surface.
Perhaps due to volume output considerations, the diameter of the sound hole of the FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth headset is slightly larger than other headsets. 3 kinds of silicone eartips of different specifications can be freely replaced according to the size of the cochlea, very user-friendly configuration.
The inclination of the earpiece is very ergonomic to ensure the most comfortable angle to the ear, plus the weight of a single 4.2g is very light, and the presence of the earphone is hardly felt when wearing it. The total weight of the charging case is less than 41g, and it is extremely light to carry.
FIIL CG earbuds uses bluetooth 5.2 technology standard, supports AAC, SBC audio decoding, and adapts to all bluetooth devices currently on the market. In addition to mobile phones, FIIL CG earphones can be smoothly connected and used with devices with bluetooth support such as smart watches, smart TVs and computers, and the signal transmission is also very stable.
Without obstruction, audio signals within 10 meters can be received flawlessly. In terms of wall penetration capability, bluetooth signals can be transmitted normally when encountered by a wall, but cannot penetrate two walls. This is basically similar to most high-end headphones.
The more characteristic of FIIL CG is that it can connect 2 devices at the same time. Just press and hold the headset for four seconds to switch between the two devices freely. There is no need to disconnect and then connect, making the operation experience easier.
FIIL has specially equipped the “fill+” APP for its headphone products. After the earphone is connected to the mobile phone, you can check the battery status of the left and right earphones and charging case. In addition, the APP has built-in 3+12+10 preset sound effects in various global styles such as nostalgia, jazz, and light music, and users can choose and set according to their own preferences.
In addition, the APP also provides three use scenarios for games, music, and video in low-latency mode. For example, when playing a mobile game, the delay can be as low as 70ms, and the listening position is more accurate, which greatly increases the smoothness and experience of the game.
Sound quality is the core part of the headset. The FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth headset is equipped with a 10mm PU+ titanium-plated composite diaphragm sound unit, and has been tuned by a professional acoustic laboratory, and the three-frequency hierarchy is clear and balanced.
In addition, the headset can effectively suppress 90% of the reverse environmental noise with the support of the dual-mic ENC noise reduction (environmental noise reduction) function, and the noise reduction effect is obvious. In some noisy environments such as shopping malls and roadsides, the headset can still maintain a clear call.
In terms of battery life, from the actual measurement situation, if the headset is within a reasonable volume range, a single battery life of the headset is about 6 hours, and the charging case provides 3 additional charges for the headset, and the overall battery life can reach about 24 hours.
In general, the engineering design, manufacturing process and packaging design of FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth earphones have seen FIIL’s philosophy and pursuit. The main function and actual experience have no obvious shortcomings. The most admirable is the price of 399 RMB, which redefines the value for money.
Of course, this headset also has design flaws that I think. For example, the charging case skylight-style open design is worrying in terms of dust resistance, and the waterproof capability of the headset IPX4 is relatively weak. In addition, FIIL CG true wireless bluetooth headset is a high-quality product that can make the ear pregnant.
