With the increasingly fierce competition of TWS true wireless headsets, many small brands have been suppressed and unable to stand up, and some brands are even losing money. As users’ requirements for headsets are getting higher and higher, many small manufacturers’ product sales revenue is not as good as product R&D investment, and ultimately they cannot make ends meet.
Therefore, it is very difficult to survive in this industry without deep technical accumulation and financial support. But these difficulties are nothing for the German brand Teufel. After all, in the past few years since it entered the Chinese headphone market, it has gradually gained a firm foothold, and with its excellent headphone quality and sound quality performance, it has won the support of a large number of Chinese users.
Teufel is a German brand with 42 years of experience in manufacturing high-end speakers. Its products are very popular not only in Germany but also in the entire European market. Although its reputation in China is not strong enough, users who have used Teufel products know that it has very high requirements for product quality and sound quality, so it has never disappointed users. What I want to introduce to you today is the new Airy Sport TWS launched by Teufel in China. Before this product, Teufel released two neck-mounted sports headphones. Compared with the previous two products, let us wait and see how the newly released Airy Sport TWS sports bluetooth headset will perform.
In terms of packaging, Teufel Airy Sport TWS still continues the style of past products, with kraft paper outer packaging. The front of the box is the name of the headset and the outline of the product, and the back of the box is the introduction of related content such as product parameters.
The contents of the whole box are quite rich. In addition to Airy Sport TWS earphones and charging case, there are also Teufel product brochures, instructions for use, safety precautions, USB charging cables and three specifications of silicone eartips.
The size of the Teufel Airy Sport TWS charging case is about half larger than the common TWS earphone charging case on the market. Since the charging case is made of plastic, the weight is relatively light. The Teufel logo is printed on the top of the charging case, so its recognition is fairly high.
The relevant technical parameters and manufacturer information of the headset are printed on the bottom of the charging case. Since the color of the font is very close to the color of the charging case, it is difficult to find without looking carefully. The feel of the Teufel Airy Sport TWS charging case is still pretty good, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to leave fingerprints on the surface.
The front of the charging case is designed with an opening groove, which is very convenient to open the charging case from here. Below the charging box are three power indicator lights. When the lid of the charging box is opened or closed, the LED indicator will show the charging status. All three indicator lights indicate that the power is 100%.
Teufel Airy Sport TWS finally abandoned the micro-usb interface and tried the Type-C interface for the first time. Because the charging case is very large, the battery capacity of the charging case has also been increased to 500mAh, which can charge the headset about three times.
The charging compartment inside the charging case is designed with a groove that fits the outer contour of the earphone. When the earphone approaches the charging groove, the earphone will automatically be adsorbed into the charging compartment and charged through dual contacts. In order to facilitate the wearing and charging of the earphones, the earphone and charging case are equipped with L/R signs next to the charging contacts.
Airy Sport TWS earphones use a unique ear hook design. The earhook part is made of silicone material, which not only has good flexibility, but also the earhook can be bent at will, and after losing external force, it can quickly return to its original shape.
The earphone adopts touch operation, and the touch area is located outside the earphone cavity. And the touch area is designed as a concave curved surface, which is very convenient to manipulate. In addition, in order to increase the recognition of the headset, the Teufel brand LOGO is also printed in the touch area.
The cavity size of Airy Sport TWSearphones is almost the same as that of common bluetooth headsets. The cavity shell is made of plastic material, and the overall workmanship is seamless. In order to bring high-quality sound effects, the earphone cavity has a built-in 8mm linear HD Neodym speaker unit, which has a solid bass and a soft and full mid-to-high tone.
There is a metal filter outside the sound hole of the earphone to prevent foreign objects from entering the earphone cavity. In order to allow users to have a more comfortable experience when wearing, there are three sets of eartips of different specifications in the accessories, users can choose the most suitable eartips according to the contour of their ear canal.
Due to the very unique ear-hook design, there is no problem in terms of wearing experience, except for a little discomfort when worn incorrectly. Even in terms of stability, Airy Sport TWS is stronger than any headset I have experienced before. Whether you are using it normally or in sports, you don’t have to worry about the earphones falling off.
Because Teufel Airy Sport TWS headphones use the TWS+ solution, it does not distinguish between primary and secondary headphones. It can be used singly, or two earphones can be used at the same time. And after the first pairing is successful, it can be taken and used at any time, which is very convenient to use. Since the headset uses touch operation and the sensitivity is relatively moderate, the feedback on command control is also relatively timely. As long as the operation commands are memorized, the function switching is also very handy.
Teufel Airy Sport TWS is equipped with bluetooth 5.0 technology and supports AAC and apt-X high-definition decoding. The signal transmission is more stable, the transmission speed is faster, and the delay is lower. In the actual test, the Airy Sport TWS headphones have a very strong anti-interference ability, and they are still very stable across the two walls, and there has been no disconnection or jamming. For users who like to play mobile games, when playing games with Airy Sport TWS, you will find that its latency is really very low.
Because Airy Sport TWS uses an in-ear design, and also comes with eartips, so after wearing it, it can play a role in sound insulation and noise reduction. In addition, it also supports CVC call noise reduction technology, the call sound is very clear, so it is completely fine to use Airy Sport TWS as a daily commuter headset.
In terms of sound quality, Airy Sport TWS feels a bit similar to a mini speaker. Since Teufel is a speaker manufacturer, Teufel’s earphone products are indispensable to the background of speakers. I listened to a few songs with Teufel Airy Sport TWS, and the overall style it brings is also the kind of balance that is slightly biased towards the speakers. The whole song has a relatively soothing and soft feeling. The volume of the sound is not very large, but the low frequency can be extended very deeply.
The sense of separation of musical instruments is very distinct. For musical instruments with a crisp sound and a touch of dullness like a drum kit, after wearing headphones, you can still clearly distinguish the sounds from different parts of the drum kit from the background music. The overall sound quality of Teufel Airy Sport TWS is very clean and neat. Although it doesn’t bring me that surging feeling, the music performance is very natural. When encountering continuous high-pitched parts, occasionally the sound will break.
In terms of battery life, perhaps because the charging case battery capacity is large enough, its overall battery life has also been greatly improved. The headset has a single battery life of 8 hours, and the charging case can provide an additional 24 hours of battery life for the headset, so its overall battery life can reach 32 hours.
As a true wireless headset priced at 499 RMB, this price is actually rare in the Chinese headset market. But it still has a lot of pressure. After all, many Chinese true wireless manufacturers are good at using low prices to win over the market. With the same configuration of true wireless headphones, Chinese manufacturers can keep the price below 300 RMB.
As a true wireless bluetooth headset without active noise reduction, based on the current configuration and performance of Teufel Airy Sport TWS headphones, its pricing will indeed be complained by many people. But in my opinion, to choose a headset, you must choose a well-known brand. If you just want a headset, there are many cheap headset products. If you want to choose a headset that is ready for long-term use, I suggest that you choose a manufacturer with strength and rich experience in the audio industry.
