- Open ear design allows situational awareness
- Flexible clip-on wearing style
- IPX5 waterproof and sweatproof
- Bluetooth 5.3 provides stable connectivity

The V22 have an over-ear clip design that rests gently on the ear rather than plugging into the ear canal like traditional in-ear headphones. This open ear concept allows you to remain aware of ambient sounds around you, an important safety feature for activities like running or biking outdoors. Despite not having an in-ear seal, the V22 still deliver surprisingly good audio quality thanks to their 14.2mm driver units.
The clip-on portion is lightweight and made from flexible silicone that adjusts to fit any ear size. Once in place, the V22 feel very secure even during intense exercise. They are available in 5 stylish colors including black, pink, white, blue, and purple.
Features and Sound Quality
Equipped with Bluetooth 5.3, the V22 provide a very stable wireless connection to your device that pairs instantly after taking them out of the charging case. Phone calls come through clearly thanks to built-in MEMS microphones that pick up voice while minimizing background noise.
While bass is slightly lacking due to the open ear design, the overall sound quality is impressive with good stereo separation and detailed mids and highs. Volume gets loud enough for noisy environments. The V22 are great for podcasts, audiobooks, and casual music listening. Just don’t expect thumping bass performance.
Battery life is a highlight of the V22 headphones. They can play music continuously for 4-5 hours on a single charge, and the charging case provides an additional 3-4 full charges. That brings the total battery life up to a whopping 28 hours, letting you listen all week without recharging. The case charges via USB-C and has an LED display that shows the current battery level.
Performance for Sports
With an IPX5 waterproof rating, the V22 can easily handle sweat, rain, and splashes, making them ideal for working out and running. The open design allows situational awareness so you can hear traffic and other hazards around you. An included set of silicone ear hooks provide extra support and comfort during intensive activities. Once your workout is done, the headphones are compact enough to slip into a gym bag.
