What makes the i200 TWS special?
i200 TWS Earphones
Unboxing the i200 TWS Earphones
Inside the box you have two i200 TWS Bluetooth earphones, a white coloured charging box, a USB-C type cable and a User Manual. The User Manual might not be particularly helpful in troubleshooting, you can check out the guide below! For this review we reviewed the black versions!
i200 TWS Design
The initial set of Airpod replicas that were released in the market were not true copies, which meant they weren’t the exact same size as the original Airpods. But the i200 is a true copy and its a 1:1 exact replica.
So you could use Airpod cases on the i200 and it will fit in perfectly. The i200 is a solid device. The charging box has a metallic, magnetic hinge that shuts quickly and with a pop. So you know it’s good! The quality of the hinge is good and should last you for years.
There is a single light sensor in the front that indicates charging and also there is a USB-C port at the bottom that lets you charge using a USB-C type cable.
The earbuds itself look exactly like the Airpods. It has a metallic tip at the bottom that has a mic and there is a sensor on the top that lets you control the music with a single touch.
i200 TWS Features and Function
How to connect the i200 TWS with a Phone
For iPhones, it’s a pretty standard affair. You keep your Bluetooth turned on and open the charging box of the earphones and you will get the pop-up interface on your iPhone and then you can click on ‘Connect’. For Android devices, you need to manually go into Bluetooth settings and then pair your device with the i200.
Once you’ve paired your phone with the earphones, once, it automatically connects with your phone every time you open the charging box. Works like clockwork, every-time I tested it during this review.
i200 TWS Touch Sensor
The best part about the Airpods is the touch sensor that lets you control your music without having to take your phone out and it’s the same case with the i200 TWS Touch Sensor. To pause and play the music, you need to touch the earbuds once.
To change the music, you need to double touch. Double touch on the right earbud for the next song and double touch on the left earbud for the previous song!
When you touch the earbuds thrice, then Siri gets activated or in the case of an Android phone, then Google Assistant is activated.
When you long press either of the earbud, then your earbuds gets turned off!
i200 TWS In-Ear Sensor – Is it there?
This is a feature that most people experienced in the latest Airpods. When you remove the earbuds from your ear, then the music would stop automatically and when you put it back in your ear, the music started again. The i200 TWS does not have this feature. But you won’t miss this feature as you can pause and play with a single touch without any fuss.
i200 TWS Wireless Charging – Is it there?
Yes. The i200 TWS does have wireless charging capabilities. You just need to place it on a Qi-enabled Wireless charger. So if you are looking for a compatible wireless charger for your i200 TWS, make sure to buy a ‘Qi’ wireless charger. Is it a better experience?
Using a wireless charger is much easier because using another cable for another device is a major pain in the wrong places!
i200 TWS Sound
The most important aspect of the Airpod copy is the sound. Does the i200 TWS make the cut? It might seem weird to say it, but the i200 TWS sound maybe equal to the sound quality of the Airpods if not better. In one case, where I tested the song “Bye Bye Macadam” by Rone, the sound was a bit too sharp in high volume and I had to reduce the volume.
But other than that the sound quality is absolutely perfect. You can hear the treble, bass and all the lesser sounds without any fuss. Sure it wasn’t as great as headphones, but for TWS earphones, it was really great!
So the sound quality is fantastic on the i200 TWS!
i200 TWS Binaural Sound – Individual Ear Pieces
The i200 TWS Earpieces have individual functions which means you can use only the left earpiece or the right earpiece. This is perfect for taking calls and you want to pay attention to your surroundings. If you don’t want to use an earpiece, you put it in the charging box and shut the box and it won’t connect to your phone while the other will.
i200 TWS Battery Life
People have been debating and discussing the battery life on TWS devices. They look at some of the Bluetooth headphone devices and expect the device to last for 10 hours plus. But if you’ve seen the size of the headphones, then you’ll know they can pack a much bigger battery. For such a small device and a small battery, the music playtime for the i200 TWS is a respectable 3.5 – 4 hours.
You can always improve the battery life by reducing the volume a little. I was able to power the i200 TWS with a very small power bank and the quality of the charge was still good!
How long does it take to charge fully? In my estimates, a 30 minute charge can give at least 70% of charge and that will last you for a few hours. I end up not charging my device for days because there is always battery left!
Is the battery safe to carry? A lot of you might have seen at Airports that lithium ion batteries shouldn’t be carried around and I’ve taken easily 15 to 20 flights locally and internationally and I’ve faced no problems with security or the device. These are tested and absolutely safe to carry around!
i200 TWS Vs i100 TWS
A super popular question amongst TWS earbud aficionados is the difference between the i200 TWS and i100 TWS. Why is the i200 TWS an upgrade on the i100 TWS?
There are two aspects which makes the i200 TWS better than the i100 TWS.
Sound – i200 TWS is better
The sound quality on the i200 TWS is a tad better than the i100 TWS. When it comes to the bass and the quality of the sound.
Battery Level – i200 TWS is better
The i200 TWS is better than the i100 TWS, when it comes to the battery life. So if the i100 lasted for 2.5 hours – 3 hours, then the i200 lasts for 3.5hours – 4 hours.
The i200 TWS is absolutely worth it for the price it comes at!
