For those who prefer the neckband to buds or on-ear phones, Wings Lifestyle is an elegant and comfortable companion
November 27 2020: Just deciding that you want to untether your music and go Bluetooth -wireless is not enough these days: there are multiple options and the choice between the larger on-ear phones, the miniature earbuds and the neckband based design is very much a personal choice.
Many users who are used to performing fairly vigorous movements like jogging or exercising when listening to music tend to prefer the neckjban wireless earphones , because you are sure it will be there around your neck even if the earpiece pops out as sometimes happens.
For those who opt for neckbands, the latest earphones from Wings, the Lifestyle that goes on sale India-wide today is a a good combo of elegance and comfort, not to speak of excellent sound quality.
The silicone neckband is ultra-light and the makers have thoughtfully provided 2 extra pairs of eartips so that you can find a perfect fit.
I like the easy access to the three buttons that control all operations: music pause/play, volume up/down, next/previous track, as well as controls to take phone calls. The Wings Lifestyle can be paired with your phone’s smart voice assistant: Siri for iPhones ans Google Assistant for Android handsets.
I found the sound to be clean and sharp wit good bass, thanks to 10mm drivers. The music range extends all the way across the audio spectrum from 20 Hz to 20 KHz.
One very useful feature: you can sync the earphones to two devices at the same time. I am imagining a scenario where you are taking part in a work related webinar and find the proceedings so boring, you quietly switch to some music on your laptop or phone!
The charging is very efficient – a full charge takes about an hour and works forat least 8 hours. If you are in a hurry, it takes bour 20 minutes to run the phones fort about 4 hours.
Like most audio products from Wings – a brand from Nagpur-based Brandscale – Lifestyle is an elegant, value for money device currently selling for Rs Rs 1399 – a steal compared to the MRP. Link to company site here
