How many of the iTWS series are there? If you are new to the TWS series, this might come as a bit of a shock that there are so many versions out there. Even for people who are aware, they might be wondering, why so many versions are released. The truth of the matter is, manufacturers, keep getting better at making advanced versions with better features, better sound quality, better battery and more. As they keep upgrading their hardware and software, they keep releasing new versions. Some of the popular ones in the past have been the i80 TWS, i60 TWS and the i100 TWS.
Now it’s time for the i200 TWS Review. What makes the i200 tick? Let’s find out!
i200 TWS vs i100 TWS
Inside the Box
You get the two bluetooth wireless earphones, one charging box, one USB cable for manual charging and one user manual that explains the features.
The design for the i200 is pretty standard that are 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 that 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.
Coming to the design of the earphones, similar to the Airpods, the audio output 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
There are numerous features that the i200 has that we will get into one by one.
One of my favourite features of the i200 TWS is the wireless charging. They do send a USB cable along with it, but I happen to lose it all the time because its so tiny and the fact that I need to carry it around is also a headache. 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.
The Pop-up box has been a constant among many TWS earphones and the i200 has it as well. The Pop-up box does two things. One, it helps you connect with the device’s Bluetooth and second, it gives you the charging percentage of the earphones and the charging box independently. The pop-up box makes the i200 a premium product and the interface is absolutely clean and simple and looks great.
Individual Ear Pieces
The two earphones of the i200 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 you 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 are 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 is the 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 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 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 space, you can use both your earphones seamlessly when speaking to someone else.
The battery life 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 cannot be compared to the Airpods, as the Airpods are far superior. But with the wireless charging feature, I just place it on the charging 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 not as good as the Airpods. But at a fraction of the cost. It’s worth it.
