Tecno’s low-cost HiPods H2 wireless earbuds promises a stellar performance on a budget

While Tecno’s prowess rests within the budget tier of smartphones, the company is keen to cash in on all aspects related to accessories. The company unveiled its version of wireless wearables dubbed HiPods H2 that promises to offer a stellar performance on Bluetooth v5 and top tier specs such as water resistance but on an affordable budget. The adoption of wireless earbuds has so far gained momentum and it’s no surprise that even the likes of Tecno would want a share of the slice.

At the moment, we’re not sure yet whether Tecno’s entry in the wireless earbuds’ arena will have any major impact on top sellers; but one thing we’re certain, for Ksh. 3,000 consumers will have a hard time looking at the costly Huawei Freebuds 3 and the rest. On a global scale, Tecno is a no show, obviously because of its limited presence in select regions, therefore we don’t expect any awards on shipments, but the tech company is sure poised to compete favorably here in Kenya where over the years has gained trust among consumers.

What you get with Tecno HiPods H2

In matters design, they mimic designs we’ve seen from other manufacturers and still manages to be just as portable, lightweight and there’s no major distinguishing feature that you’d easily realize it’s a Tecno product than having a closer look. However, the manufacturer says they pack a new type of speaker that gives a good balance while offering real stereo sound effect designed for each sound frequencies.

A plus for those who already own a Tecno phone, the wireless earbuds are designed to easily connect with Tecno phones. Upon turning on the Bluetooth option, and opening the charging box, a pop-up connection interface shows up on your screen with options to click and start the connection instantly.

And just like we’ve seen various implementations, the HiPods H2 comes with a charging box that acts as its storage case as well. Once you place them inside the box, they’ll automatically start recharging ensuring they have enough power whenever you want to use them.

Under the hood, you’ll get a 43mAh battery that touted to last 4.5 hours at maximum volume and 6hours at 60 percent volume. There’s also Bluetooth V5.0 that ensures stable and smoother signal transmission.
