This summer LSTN released their “true wireless’’ earbuds- the LSTN Beacon. With its eye-catching beauty and sleek design, the Beacon is designed for wireless travel.
Forget the wires and connect via Bluetooth to your mobile device with ease. Once you have paired your earbud just hold down the faceplate of the other Beacon earbud to automatically connect.
The sound is very good however it could have more bass and that sentiment is shared by Jordan, who was winner of the LSTN Beacon in the magazine giveaway. “Honestly, the sound quality is 80/20 for me. 80% being on the positive side. I’m not a bass lover but it could use a little more bass. But I am loving them no less- trust me!”
One of my favourite features about the LSTN Beacon is the fast charging case which can hold up to 3-4 charges for the earbuds (which in turn can be in use for up to 3 hours at a time). Though I would have liked a longer charging cable- the micro USB port means charging with a longer cable is not hard to find. Plus you can see the LED indicator lights through the case showing your earbuds being powered up.
I know a lot of my colleagues are not fans of wireless earbuds with complaints of discomfort or losing earbuds. However, with the LSTN Beacon, none of those challenges existed. The earbuds were a comfort and I shook my head a lot while testing and they stayed snuggly fit. The box also includes several ear tips and wings so your only challenge is discovering your perfect fit.
All in all, if you are a fan of wireless earbuds- the LSTN Beacon really shines bright and stands out from the crowd. Plus who doesn’t love being a force for good….Do consider supporting this worthy cause.
