Crazybaby Air wireless earphone review

If you follow tech YouTubers you may have seen Unbox Therapy’s video of a really cool floating speaker last year. Well the company behind that crazy piece of gadgetry is back with a new set of truly wireless earphones that looks and sounds amazing. In fact, it sounds better than Apple’s AirPods.

Right out of the box the Air by Crazybaby feels and looks premium. The aluminum charging case feels very sturdy yet not heavy. Pop open the tray and the Air earphones present themselves in its full glory. Pairing with my smartphone took 30 seconds, and after that, the Air connects automatically every time thanks to the Bluetooth 4.2 technology. This is very important, as the Bragi Dash and Erato Apollo both suffered from dropped connections.

Crazybaby spent a year designing the Air, and it shows. The earphones fit very comfortably in the ear, and despite running and jumping, it never came close to falling out of my ear. If your ears are shaped differently, don’t worry — Crazybaby includes different sleeves for the Air, so it should fit everyone fine. This is the first wireless earphones to use carbon nanotube technology which explains why the Air feels so lightweight yet sturdy.

Crazybaby developed the Air with world-class acoustic labs and audio
engineers, and the result is immediately noticeable. The 5.2mm speaker driver stored inside pumped out super rich bass. In fact, this may be the best bass I’ve ever heard on an equipment this small. The highs and mids are crisp and clear too. Whether it was Beatles, K-Pop, or classical music, the Air pumped out uncanny sound that surpasses any other wireless earphones — Apple’s AirPod included. I think this has to do with the professional grade CSR chip that Crazybaby built into the Air.

Because of the Bluetooth 4.2 technology, the Air manage to stay connected to my iPhone during multiple listening sessions, both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, I can walk up to 20 feet away from the device before connection would break. There’s a microphone packed inside the Air with noise-isolation technology, and during test calls, the voice on the other end sounded loud and clear. I was told on the other end they could hear me fine too.

Battery life is also very good on the Air. A fully charged Air can play hi-fi music for four hours, and the charging case can add an additional two full charges.

Additionally, Crazybaby has developed its own app so you can customize the EQ on the fly. Overall, the Air by Crazybaby high quality and futuristic piece of equipment.

    This company has stolen from the Indiegogo backers to sell to retail. Go to the campaign and read the comments. Do not support them. Awful company and the product is crap. Bluetooth drops all the time and sound quality is just ok. This whole company is a joke and a scam.

    • Brad Fry

      So the Forbes review is rubbish (or corrupted somehow)? That’s maybe hard to credit, but you clearly feel strongly about it. What’s your source?

    • Jared

      I am an early Indiegogo backer, and am eagerly awaiting mine. The company has kept up their updates and been very transparent about delays, which were largely due to their decision to use higher-grade parts than originally planned once the project brought in so much revenue. If they had spent all their time answering the trolls like Mike here, the product would have never got out, so they wisely picked their battles and let the updates speak for them. I stopped checking comments on the Indiegogo site because so many had given in to typical Internet rage culture. Just chill and wait for your earphones! Sounds like they are worth the wait!

        I’m an Indiegogo early backer (end of 2016) and received my Air earbuds this week. They’re the best wireless earbuds I’ve used. Sound quality will never be as good as wired models IMHO, but they’re great for what they’ll likely be used for – working out, casual listening, etc. Worth it to me.

    • Neil Looby

      The only problem with the company is 6 months of delays. Otherwise everything Jared stated is true. Any time I’ve had a legitimate question I’ve gotten a response nearly immediately.

      Do I have my earbuds yet? No. Do I have a firm timeline? Yes.
