Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers Review
Do you yearn for the 1980s and 1990s, when you could stroll down the street while listening to your favorite music on a boombox slung over your shoulder? If you are too young to remember the boombox era, look it up on Google. We need to talk about the Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers because they are more significant topics. many believe it to be the modern boombox.
The wearable Bluetooth speakers from Zulu Audio combine a speaker’s features with a headphone’s portability. Let’s examine these unusual wearable speakers in more detail to determine whether they are brilliant or absurd.
The Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers initially appear to be a pair of earbuds. Each speaker has a cord connecting it to the other and is a little smaller than palm size. similar to a set of earbuds.
The two speakers can rest on your chest while the cord hangs around your neck. Two magnets from Zulu Audio are included for you to attach to the back of the speaker and wear under your shirt to keep it in place.
Additionally, a rubber clip is offered to aid in holding the speakers in place. To adjust the amount of cord slack, you can attach the clip in front of or behind your neck. Depending on your preference, the rubber clip will raise or lower the speakers on your shirt.
The device’s overall weight of 3 oz is significantly less than the typical over-ear headphone’s weight of 10 oz.
Even during the most strenuous activity, such as running, cycling, skateboarding, or even shooting hoops, the magnets are powerful enough to hold the speakers in place.
Although these magnets are powerful, they are small enough to be easily misplaced. You might have, like most small pieces of any equipment. Fortunately, replacement magnets are available from the Zulu Audio website. The price of a replacement magnet is $2.99. A future cost to take into account.
The Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers are splashproof because they have an IPX4 waterproof rating. Perfect for use in the rain or if you have a large buildup of body heat.
Battery and Connections
A lithium-ion battery powers the Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers, providing up to 4 hours of playback time (at 75% volume). The battery’s standby life is roughly seven days. The speakers can be fully recharged from the flat in under 2.5 hours.
When it comes to audio connections, Bluetooth is your only choice. The Bluetooth 4.1 technology used by the speakers is more than adequate for this kind of gadget.
The Bluetooth range is only 17 feet, which is considerably shorter than the 66-foot average of other Bluetooth 4.1 speakers. But when you usually have your phone in your pocket or bag, the Zulu Audio Wearable is more like a pair of headphones. So, I don’t think the range will be a problem.
A built-in microphone allows you to make and take calls as well as use voice assistants like Siri or Google on the Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers.
The main speaker has plus (+) and minus (-) buttons. Both are multi-purpose buttons for managing incoming calls, playing and pausing music, and controlling volume.
I initially thought the Zulu Audio Wearables would sound terrible when I first saw them. But the speakers’ performance is actually quite good. equal to the majority of portable Bluetooth speakers. Which, I’ll admit, isn’t saying much, but the quality is adequate.
The Zulu Audio Wearables might not be for you if you enjoy bass. The speakers are severely deficient in the low end. It makes sense that there won’t be much bass because these speakers are tiny and smaller than the typical Bluetooth speaker.
Mid-Range and Treble Response
The treble and midrange response is comparable to a cheap Bluetooth speaker. Although the sound quality isn’t great, everything is audible.
One thing to keep in mind is that the Zulu Audio Wearables are somewhat directional, so those nearby won’t hear the same level of quality or volume as you do. To get the full impact, you must wear the speakers around your neck.
Last but not least, the Zulu Audio Wearables’ call quality is once more pleasantly surprising. However, this is no more noticeable than when using the speakerphone on a Bluetooth speaker. The caller does sound a little distant. The caller will be able to clearly hear you, which is an area where many Bluetooth speakerphones are ineffective. You being so near the microphone would lead me to believe that this is the reason.
The Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers will perform better than conventional headphones or a Bluetooth speaker if you’re a runner, cyclist, or skateboarder navigating through congested suburban areas.
You become very isolated and lack spatial awareness when wearing headphones. This could be hazardous on congested roads. You can still hear traffic and other noise with the wearables out of your ears, allowing you to navigate safely while still listening to audio.
The biggest issue with speakers like these is that people frequently wear them while listening to music in public spaces like buses and other transportation. This can be very irritating. Therefore, if you don’t use these speakers responsibly and show respect for those around you, you could get into trouble for purchasing them.
The Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers could be a good option if you don’t like headphones and are concerned about the health of your ears. At least you won’t hurt your ears, but you won’t get the same bass and immersive experience you do with headphones.
The Zulu Audio Wearable Bluetooth Speakers are priced at $50, which is about $20 more than I would want to pay for something of this nature. The price is still reasonable, and they are a lot of fun.
