Design and functions

The AIRTIME Pro wireless headphones from iFrogz are another entry into the incredibly vast TWS headphone market. This, the iteration by iteration of the AIRTIME headphones I reviewed just a few months ago, is a clear improvement over the original.

Apparently, the regular AIRTIME headphones are no longer available on the ZAGG website (they’re not in stock, at least), so I think the AIRTIME pros are positioned as their true successor. And they are much better in many ways.

Reviewing the previous version of iFrogz’s AIRTIME line gave me a good basis for comparing the new upgraded Pro headphones, so there will be several mentions about how they improved.

The first thing I noticed about the PRO is that the powered cover has a much lower Profile, More Pocket. It’s a little bigger and thicker than a Tic Tac pack, but still has a 450mAh battery. The headphones themselves are rated at 45mAh each, so the battery cover could theoretically provide 5 recharges. This brings the total playing time of the AIRTIME PRO to 20 hours. I managed to get out about 2.5 to 3 hours of each music session, so it almost seems to match your estimate.

For me, headphones have a strange shape. There is a long stem that goes down, and I do not know that they serve a purpose rather than pulling them more easily from the ears. I was tempted to cut into this trunk to see if there was maybe drum hardware or something. iFrogz calls them “ergonomic”, but they don’t even touch part of my ear. I thought at least the microphones were at the bottom of the rods, but that’s not the cover. Strange.

A surprising feature is the capacitive control. The metal badges on both headphones act as commands and react to even the slightest touch of your finger. This is a huge improvement over pressing a button, which usually requires an unpleasant amount of force and directs the ends of the earplugs further into your ear canals. However, it also greatly facilitates accidental brushing of the controls.

I appreciate the complexity of the proposed controls. Press either the headphones once paused and starts the music. If you hold down the left or right button for a few seconds, the volume will be reduced or increased. A double tap skips or rewinds the track, and a triple tap calls Siri or Google.

It is worth noting that the microphone does not always listen to Siri like Apple’s AirPods. You need to talk to Siri with your phone close to your mouth or press the headphones three times.

The airtime PROs come with 3 sizes of earphone tips, but even the largest tip feels a little too small, and the size difference between the tips Is minute. They barely form a seal in my ear canals, which is important for sound quality. And since they don’t have wingtips, these tips are the only things that keep the headphones in place. I do not think they will fly out of my ears and even shake my head, but I would have liked a larger option.

Final Thoughts

With an overview, the AIRTIME PRO headphones establish a fast connection, maintain a decent connection, come in a stylish and beautiful cover and are for the most part located a little north of okay. Which is a bit salty if you ask me. A little closer to would force me to recommend them to someone looking for a affordable wireless alternative to expensive Apple/Beats products.
