SmartBuy products are quite familiar to domestic consumers. But it is important to know how to choose headphones even from this, quite a responsible manufacturer. It is also worth considering the features of specific versions.
It’s worth mentioning right away that it’s hard to call SmartBuy headphones original devices. So, the i7 version copies the well-known AirPods. However, the size of the "duplicate" is larger than that of the original, and the prices, on the contrary, are smaller. The assortment of headphones at SmartBuy is quite large, and it is definitely more than that of the same Apple brand. Therefore, the choice of a suitable version is available to almost every consumer.
To equip its products, the company uses high-quality, highly engineered microphones with high sensitivity. Almost all models are created using the Sound technology. To make cups, silicone and special foam are combined.
The assortment contains versions with wide and flat cups.
The best models
Among wired SmartBuy headsets, the ii-One Type-C stands out. This is a modern in-channel modification, which is equipped with a cable 120 cm long. The product is painted white. The manufacturer claims that it provides full stereo sound. The electrical resistance level is 32 ohms.
Other important features:
reproduction frequencies from 20 to 20,000 Hz;
speakers with a diameter of 1.2 cm;
Type-C connector (not to be confused with Bluetooth);
microphone on the remote control.
Fans of new products should pay attention to another wired in-channel model - S7. In terms of frequency range, it is not inferior to the previous version. The speakers also have a diameter of 1.2 cm. The controls include a volume control and a button for receiving incoming calls. The cable length is 120 cm, and the product as a whole is painted in attractive black.
But SmartBuy can offer a lot of interesting things to gaming enthusiasts as well. In this segment, it delivers solid, vibrant stereo headsets. So, the Platoon model, also known as the SBH-8400, is a modern full-size headphone.
Their frequency range covers 17 Hz - 20,000 Hz. The impedance, as in previous versions, is 32 ohms.
Other features are as follows:
cable length 250 cm;
equipped with a microphone with a sensitivity of 58 dB;
stereo sound reproduction;
adjustment of ear pads;
increased softness of the headband;
speakers with a diameter of 4 cm.
Another eye-catching gaming device is the Commando headset. It is also designed to play stereo sound. Connection by 2 minijack outputs is provided by default. Cable length - 250 cm.
The headboard is predictably adjusted and soft ear cushions are predictably applied.
It is quite reasonable to single out wireless headphones as a separate category. A vivid example is the i7S plug-in device. To transmit sound to speakers with a diameter of 4 cm, the time-tested Bluetooth protocol is used here. The design includes a microphone with a sensitivity of 95 dB. From the controls there is a button for receiving calls.
Other features are as follows:
400 mAh recharge station in the delivery set;
the ability to recharge via the included microUSB cable;
packing in a special case, it is a power supply unit;
reasonable value for money;
the ability to use as a Handsfree;
duration of work on 1 charge up to 240 minutes;
The SmartBuy range also includes headsets for connecting to desktop computers. So, the JOINT model is equipped with a cable length of 250 cm . The diameter of the cups in this overhead modification reaches 4 cm. The electrical resistance is still the same - 32 Ohms. The microphone is mounted on the left cup. The headband can always be adjusted to fully concentrate on work (or on the game). Automation is thought out in such a way that the ear pads themselves are put in the most convenient position. The device is claimed to be suitable for:
use of IP telephony services;
work in the Call center and on the "hot lines";
listening to audio books;
games of various genres;
playing music on a computer or on an audio player.
The in-ear i7 MINI headset is also very popular. The device produces a relatively good stereo sound. The speakers are reduced in size to 1 cm (in the original version of i7 they are larger).
A mocroUSB connector is provided. The speakers are painted in flawless white.
Modification RUSH SNAKE discontinued. In any case, there is no actual mention of it on the official website. Similarly, in the archive section there is information about TOUR headphones. Therefore, it makes sense to pay attention to another new product from the SmartBuy company - the universal mobile headset Utashi Duo II. The branded index for this intra-channel product is SBHX-540.
The main nuances are as follows:
And to complete the review is appropriate model EZ-TALK MKII . Like all other options, this device produces excellent stereo sound. Consumers are waiting for a very sensitive microphone and the ability to adjust the headband. The diameter of the speakers is 2.7 cm.
Since the cable is connected to only one speaker, user mobility is enhanced.
It would be possible to list specific models of SmartBuy brand headphones for a long time to come. But it will be much more important for customers to find out how to choose the most suitable version. Headsets (i.e. a combination of headphones and a microphone) help a lot:
with remote communication via the Internet;
in online games;
when learning on the Internet;
when organizing online conferences.
Headsets today most often use the Bluetooth protocol. Of course, there are wired options. But they are much less practical. Basically, a wired headset is chosen for professional use, when it is important to hear extraneous sounds too. It is also worth paying attention to exactly how the microphone is located.
Its placement on the headphones (close to the mouth) increases the clarity of your own speech. In compact headsets for the phone, the microphone on the headphones is usually mobile, and you can always take it aside to avoid interference with the conversation. A rigidly fixed version will be more attractive for purely working purposes or when connected to a computer. There is a fundamentally different option when the microphone is inside the case of one of the headphones.
With proper design, voice pickup is no worse than in the first case, but extraneous sounds from the speaker deliver inconvenience.
The removal of the microphone to the wire is typical for a telephone headset. But such a decision is hardly welcome. It conveys sound too poorly. As for the sensitivity of the microphone, it must be recognized as accurately as possible in the documentation, and not be trusted in advertising. Important: a very high sensitivity is relevant only for microphones mounted on a wire.
If the distance to the lips of the speakers is small, an ultra-sensitive microphone is a waste of money. Special attention deserves the choice of headphones for games. The easiest way to focus, of course, is on a specialized selection from SmartBuy. But it is important to understand that everything is very individual here. “Ears”, which delight one person, may dislike the other.
Those who are going to play any long and often, and not from case to case, definitely need to prefer full-size models. Only they can demonstrate the necessary characteristics during a many-hour session of a favorite sight. The presence of a metal guide and soft head pads are very useful. “Foamy” ear pads, thanks to the memory effect, are welcome. It is useful to check whether the material of the outer shell breathes well.
True connoisseurs of games try to buy headphones with multi-channel sound. For most tasks, they need 7.1 mode. A comfortable game is surely provided by devices whose cable reaches at least 250 cm. An alternative can be considered Bluetooth-based equipment. However, it should be really excellent quality, because sometimes the only failure spoils the whole impression of the game.
