    By Siddharth Parwatay | 12 Feb 2019

    Pros

    Good fitTangle free cableHardcase

    Cons

    Low on bassLacks tonal accuracy

    Verdict

    If you are getting them for a substantially discounted street price, they are worth considering. They are also good choice if you are specifically going to engage in rigorous activities and you don’t mind a drop in bass. In the normal course of things, you’d be better off with the Brainwavz BLU-100.

    ifrogz FreeRein Reflect: Detailed Review

    Before actually getting into the review, let's take a moment to talk about an interesting observation about the budget audio segment in recent times. Even at the lowest price range the core components in the audio realm are getting universally better. What this means is that the performance difference between a cheap audio product and a very expensive one isn’t always instantly perceptible. The gap seems to be narrowing – nothing is really bad anymore and very few products are exceptionally good. At one time finding a $30 gem that outperforms $100 headphones was a truly rare discovery. Today it’s quite commonplace. The name notwithstanding, the ifrogz FreeRein Reflect is one such budget product that’s not bad.

    It’s a bluetooth in ear headphone meant for use during sports or activities that involvement considerable movement. The fins on the ear pieces provide a secure fit and ensure that the earpieces stay in place when running. The cable is tangle free and features a strip of reflective coating similar to what we’d seen on JBL’s Synchros Reflect. The idea is to make joggers more visible at night. The right earpiece has volume up/down controls and the power on/off/standby button. Despite the buttons the housing isn’t large like the MPOW Swift. The controls are raised for tactile feedback and make for operation just by feel; they are also moisture resistant. The build isn’t bad but attention to detail is missing, for instance the flap covering the USB charging input remains slightly open.

     

    Now let's get into the performance. The signature is distinctly sharp i.e. the treble end is enhanced - making them sound tinny. Ordinarily if the reproduction is accurate this would only result in the signature being bright. In the case of the ifrogz FreeRein Reflect, some amount of detail is lost but like I said earlier it’s not bad. I’ve heard worse from wired in-ears. The battery life is rated for five and a half hours but in hour test it gave 3 hours 50 mins. 

    Bottomline: if you are getting them for a substantially discounted street price, they are worth considering. They are also good choice if you are specifically going to engage in rigorous activities and you don’t mind a drop in bass. In the normal course of things, you’d be better off with the Brainwavz BLU-100
