Headphones Syllable: why pay for AirPods?
When Apple introduced the AirPods in September of this year, many more not impressed with the headset and the case battery with which they are charged. But if you think this solution is used only in Apple, it is not so: here, for example, wireless headphones D900S from the company Syllable, which is also charged in a similar way, and look at it not worse.
I’ll cut to the configuration. Box stylish, vaguely resembled the tone of the JBL. But the main thing is what’s inside. And here everything is quite solid: in addition to the headphones themselves and the charging box, which also serves to securely store the device, included is a special adapter elastic. It will not remove the headset parts in his pocket, and carefully leave her free access.
In addition, there are several additional sets of silicone “Christmas tree”, which in D900S are used as nozzles, micro-USB cable for charging (where the same without it) and a small black little pouch for carrying the headphones. In General, equipment engineers are clearly not stingy. Let’s see if they paid the same attention to sound.
Nozzle is made in such a way that a positive impact on noise isolation, as well as the headset securely in the ear canal. You can at least run, even just to move around the city — the headphones sit securely. The place of attachment is not round, as we used to see in the vast majority of the gags, and oval.
Glossy drops look great, are lightweight and have high impact properties. To turn on the headset, you need to use large buttons on the sides, which are made in the form of a triangle. At the bottom of D900S located contact pads for charging.

As soon as you turn on the headset, iPhone or any other smartphone with Bluetooth quickly find. But the placement of the earbuds in the ears will take a little more time a little unusual, but then the device is practically not felt. Single click on the button allows you to accept the challenge and put the track on pause. If the headset is charging, the edging of the buttons lights up red when you connect the blue, during a device search green.
Plastic box has a stylish design, the charging port and the power button. There is also a light indicator, indicating that the headphones are charging.
Before you connect your headset to your smartphone, headphones first, it is necessary to connect among themselves. Hold the button for about 10 seconds before they start flashing synchronously. After this the left ear “obey” rules.
D900S sound great, no strange noises and crackling. The manufacturer was able to strike the optimum balance between the upper and lower frequencies, the bass work perfectly, no failures. The main thing is to fix the headset in the ears, it affects a lot.
By the way, in operating mode, in which you listen to music on the way to work, from work, say, at lunchtime, the rest of the time the same Syllable D900s works as a headset, a single charge the device will last for a full day, and most of those 5 charges in a dock box — on the working week. Quite a decent result.
What of the mysterious box stood next to the D900S in the beginning of the article, you ask? This is also headphones from Syllable — D900 Mini. In fact it is a “Lite” version D900S, which has a shorter battery life (120 minutes) and less stylish case for charging. However, the last here and there, and even has a light display.
The characteristics of both pairs of headphones are very similar, as well as in appearance. Built-in key here also has the function of call control and playback of audio tracks. Proprietary noise suppression technology, 16 Ohm, operating radius 10 metres is impressive.
The sound of the headset is still different — it seemed to us that D900S sound juicier and better fulfills the vocals. Therefore, there is a difference in price — 2890 rubles, as against 4390 rubles. Pick and choose what you prefer, but one thing is for sure: this is one of the best wireless headphones on the market. Yes, and why pay 10 thousand rubles for the AirPods?
