If it’s your first time to know the TWS series, you will be surprised to find there’re so many TWS earphone versions out there. The manufacturers keep getting better at making advanced versions with better features, better sound quality, batter battery, etc. As they keep upgrading their hardware and software, they keep releasing new TWS versions. The popular TWS earphones in the past have been the i80 TWS, i60 TWS and the i30 TWS.
i200 TWS AirPods Clone Review
Inside the Box
The i200 TWS Airpods clone comes packed with two bluetooth wireless earphones, one charging box, one USB cable for manual charging and one user manual that explain the features.
The i200 TWS’ design is pretty standard and very similar to other iTWS earphones. The charging pop-up box is very solid and it feels sturdy when you open it. Unlike the budget versions, where the opening flap flays about, the i200 TWS’ charging box is stronger and you get the good pop when you open the box. There is a charging light on the outside that indicates if the box is charged or not. If it’s still charging, then the colour appears in red, if it’s fully charged, then it appears in green.
Like the real Apple Airpods, the audio output of i200 TWS is on top that gives an ambient sound. The sensor for the in-ear is on the inside and there is a sensor on the outside for controlling the touch. It weighs very less and it’s easy to carry around.
Function and Use
The i200 TWS supports wireless charging. The sellers do send a USB cable along with it, but it’s too easy to get lost since it’s so tiny. Carrying the cable everywhere is also not convenient. With the wireless charging feature, I can just place the charging box on top of a Qi enabled charger. I have one at home and one at the office and that solves my problem with the USB charging. It’s a tad slow with the wireless charging, but nothing that affects the battery.
All TWS earphones have pop-up boxes, so does the i200 TWS. The pop-up box does two things. One, it helps you connect with your phone’s Bluetooth. Second, it gives you the charging percentage of the earphones and the charging box independently. The pop-up box makes the i200 TWS a premium product and the interface is absolutely clean and simple and looks great.
Individual Ear Pieces
Both the two earphones of the i200 TWS can be connected independently with your phone. This might not seem important, but it is absolutely required for a great audio experience. Sometimes when it comes to wireless earphones, the connection is lost and you don’t know which earpiece is giving more trouble. When you independently connect them, you can ensure that each of them are working properly. Another important feature is taking calls. When you’re taking calls through earphones, it’s safe to have only one ear covered, so that you are aware of the surroundings. So if you want to take a call, you can connect one earphone to the phone and speak freely while keeping the other one in the box!
Another top feature of the i200 TWS is its in-ear sensor. This sensor automatically identifies if the earphones are in the ear or out. When you remove the earphones from your ear, the music automatically stops and when you put it back, the music starts again. This is super important when you are constantly being interrupted. This way you don’t have to go back to the song you were playing. This is a pretty nifty feature that you will love only when you use the earphones regularly.
The sound quality of the i200 TWS is way better than its predecessors. The manufacturers have worked hard on giving it a better bass, treble and more. This ensures you get the best sound quality amongst all other iTWS earphones. We tested the i200 TWS with phone calls as well and the Binaural quality is fantastic. This means both the earphones work when you are taking calls and if you are in a safe place, you can use both your earphones seamlessly when speaking to someone else.
The battery life of the i200 TWS is around 3.5 hours on continuous use. This is similar to the other iTWS earphones that we have encountered. This is the only aspect where the i200 TWS cannot be compared to the Airpods, as the real Apple Airpods are far superior. But with the wireless charging feature, I just place it on the charing pad and let it charge.
- Great price for the features it has
- Solid design and build
- Amazing sound quality
- In-ear sensor is pretty useful
- The wireless charging makes this an amazing product
The battery life is around 3.5 hours, which is 1.5 hours lesser than the real Apple Airpods. But considering the price, it’s totally worth it.
