Sound Quality/Usage

My ears are different to yours. As is the next person. That’s why it was good to see August had supplied different ear buds and 4 different size stabilisers. Whilst the in-ears look big, they are so comfortable and only 15g in weight.

Call quality was ok and playing music provided an enjoyable listen.

For the music test, I listened to several different genres over hours and hours. Below are my findings from a selection of 5 tracks.

“The Sound of Yo-Yo-Ma, The Score – Oh My Love, Ellie Goulding – On My Mind, The Martian – Movie – Emergency Land, Cassandra Wilson – Come On in my Kitchen”.

Across the music spectrum everything was reasonable and not over played. However, I did notice a slight background hiss which was more noticeable in quieter tracks and classical music.

Conclusion

Just shows how far technology is moving forward. In-Ear Bluetooth headphones for £27.95, and currently on offer at Amazon too. This price 2-3 years ago would not have been possible versus the quality. Not only that the August EP610 sound reasonable and are comfortable. Recommended.

  1. Great review. I’m a real fan of Bluetooth earphones.. At last we can do away with tangling wires and cords. The battery standby time looks amazing and with a quick charge to keep than topped up, what’s not to like here.
