There is always no shortage of competitors in the earphone market. After the iPhone phone decided to cancel the earphone jack, the sales of AirPods have greatly increased, but the wireless earphone market has become active again. TWS earphones are also because of true wireless, more stable connection, and wireless restriction It has also gradually gained recognition from users. In this vast market, apart from AirPods, there is actually no shortage of more cost-effective competitors.
I recently received a pair of earphones from a friend. The brand is Happy Plugs. Many users may not be familiar with it. This brand from Stockholm, Stockholm is a city in Sweden, compared to the more well-known IKEA and H.M are from there.

Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC Unboxing
This model presented by a friend is Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC true wireless bluetooth earphones. The main function of this earphones is ANC active noise reduction and long battery life. It is also a new model this year. The official website understands that the colors are black, white, and blue. There are four colors and green, and the one I got is green. You can see the product inside through the packaging. This color scheme should be more suitable for boys.
The packaging is still very delicate, the transparent acrylic box, you can learn some product information on the packaging, for example, this is an ANC earphones, that is, active noise reduction, and bluetooth 5.0 technology, battery life up to 38 hours, etc. information.
Take out the product, you can see all the accessories, including Air 1 ANC earphones, charging case, Type-C charging cable and five sets of eartips. The instructions inside are available in five languages.
The charging case also functions as a storage box in daily use. If you don’t use it, put the earphones in the box, you can also check the power of the earphones, connect it to the power supply, and turn it into a charging case. The design is quite exquisite.
At the bottom of the box, you can see a Type-C charging port, and on the right is a sign that the battery is full, indicating that the earphones is fully charged. On the left side, there is a physical button, which can display the remaining battery when tapped. Long press 5S, pair the phone, and long press 10S to reset the earphones.
In terms of appearance, most of the current in-ear earphones are still different. Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC adopts a short ear handle design in the appearance of the earphone, and the cavity shell uses an ergonomic design. The cavity will fit firmly to the ground when worn. Hang on the outside of the ear canal. For in-ear earphones, I prefer the head-mounted type, because most of the in-ear earphones, when worn for about half an hour, the ears will hurt. I don’t know if it is the design of the earphones or my ears are not suitable. But occasionally there are a few exceptions, which are comfortable to wear and fit, without that kind of pressure. Air 1 ANC is one of them.
Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC touch experience
Air 1 ANC does not see any physical buttons in appearance, and all the controls are realized by touching the left and right earphones. And in terms of noise reduction, there are three modes to choose from, the ANC mode (active noise reduction), which is also the default mode at boot, and the transparent transmission mode, which means that you can hear surrounding sounds in this mode, such as on the street This mode is relatively safe if you need to listen to music and answer the phone while walking or driving. There is also a basic mode. At this time, ANC is turned off, which is most suitable for sports scenes.
Is it troublesome to control it? In fact, it is very simple, long press the 2S right earphone touch area, you can switch modes. And the same is the right earphone. A quick touch is play/pause, two touches are previous, and three touches are next. The same applies to answering a call. Click answer/hang up once, double-click to reject it, and three-click to answer the new call and keep the first call. Tap the left earphone once to increase the volume, twice to decrease the volume, and long press for 2S to wake up the voice assistant. I tested the Xiaomi mobile phone and it can also wake up Xiao Ai.
In addition, when wearing it during normal exercise, you don’t have to worry about the firmness of the wear first, because of this ergonomic design, you don’t have to worry about falling. In addition, don’t worry about sweating the earphones wet, this earphone is waterproof and sweatproof. It is a good choice for daily commuting, fitness or meditation in a daze.
Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC sound quality performance
The sound quality performance, if compared with wired earphones, there will still be a big difference in sound quality. And for a small earphone, the improvement of sound quality needs to consider a sufficiently large drive unit, internal cavity structure, acoustic design and resonance unit. The Air 1 ANC has a limited volume, but the performance is still OK, and the overall level is relatively balanced.
Of course, everyone has a different understanding of sound quality. If you have to judge the sound quality, you can listen to it as a whole. From the aspects of popular songs, light music, and listening to the program, it can be said to be similar to the overall performance of AirPods, with a clear hierarchy and transparency. Of course, because this Air 1 ANC has an active noise reduction function, no matter how noisy the environment is on the subway, you can isolate yourself from it without being affected.
In addition, this earphones also comes with a proximity sensor. When one of the earphones is removed, the playback will be paused, and if you wear it again, it will automatically start playback. Moreover, the two earphones can be used alone or paired. With the charging case, they can be quickly connected to the bound mobile phone, which is very convenient.
Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC battery life
The charging case uses the Type-C charging port, which is the same line as the mobile phone currently in use. You can carry it with you during daily business trips. If you need to charge, you can use the power bank directly, which does not take up space and charges quickly.
I read the manual later and found out that this earphones can not only be charged directly with Type-C cable, but also supports wireless charging, which can be charged as soon as it is picked up and put. But I don’t know if it’s because of my wireless charging stand. The charging speed is much slower than type-c cable.
Battery life, according to official data, if it is placed in a charging case, it can reach about 30 hours, and if the earphones is used continuously, it is 5 hours. Under actual conditions, it can be used for 15-20 minutes every day for commuting, and it can be used for about a week. Although wireless charging is slower, the earphones box is put before going to bed every day, and the battery is fully charged the next day, so there is no need to worry about battery life.
One of the biggest feelings of the Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC true wireless bluetooth earphones is convenience. For example, when the single is removed, play/pause, quickly connect with the mobile phone, and the two-in-one design of storage box and charging stand, all reflect the true Convenient in the sense. Comfortable to wear. This is one of the earphones that can be worn for a long time without discomfort. The other two are recommended for long battery life, and ANC active noise reduction, so you can listen quietly Song calls will not be disturbed by the outside world.
Of course, if you have stringent requirements for sound quality, then choose wired earphones, and there are more professional earphones. The Happy Plugs Air 1 ANC true wireless bluetooth earphones is most suitable for the scene, when commuting to and from get off work, on a business trip, or in some relatively noisy working environment, whether it is talking or listening to music, it will not be disturbed by the outside world.
