Published on June 18, 2023, 7:20 p.m.
The Acuvar Wired Ear Bud Headphones are an affordable pair of in-ear headphones that feature passive noise cancellation and an in-line microphone. With a comfortable design and decent sound quality, these headphones provide good value for budget-conscious buyers. In this review, we’ll take a close look at the key features, design, sound quality, and overall performance to see if the Acuvar earbuds are worth considering.
- Brand: Acuvar
- Model Name: Wired Ear Bud Headphones
- Product Type: In-ear wired headphones
- Key Features: Passive noise cancellation, in-line microphone, play/pause button
Design and Comfort
The Acuvar earbuds have a simple and lightweight design. The earbuds fit securely in the ear canal thanks to the inclusion of soft silicone tips in multiple sizes. The angled nozzle design also helps provide a comfortable and stable fit. The flat cable is tangle-resistant and includes an in-line microphone and single button remote for call and music control.
With 10mm drivers, the Acuvar earbuds produce a balanced sound profile that emphasizes the lows and highs. The bass has decent punch and extension considering the price point. The highs are bright but lack refinement. Mids are slightly recessed but clear for vocals and instruments. The soundstage is intimate. Noise isolation is pretty effective at blocking out ambient sounds when music is playing. Overall, the sound quality is decent for casual listening and exceeds expectations for the low price tag.
Microphone and Call Quality
The in-line microphone captures voice clearly for phone calls. Callers reported that my voice sounded full-bodied and natural. Noise cancellation works reasonably well at minimizing background noise. The single button remote allows for convenient call and music control.
The Acuvar earbuds have a lightweight plastic construction that seems durable enough for daily use. The tangle-resistant cable is useful for reducing friction damage. However, the 3.5mm jack is not reinforced so users should be careful not to bend it excessively to avoid internal damage.
- Listening to music, podcasts, videos on the go
- Taking calls hands-free
- Budget earbuds for kids or as a backup pair
