Today I’m reviewing the Pamu slide which is a totally wireless earbud. These have a lot of great features including the ability to automatically pair with your phone and the charging case can also be used to charge your phone as well. And while these do sound incredible with certain genres of music, other genres don’t fare quite as well, which I’ll be talking about in my impressions. Currently there is a promotion going on, so you can make sure you’re getting the best price.
The charging case is made of aluminum and its design makes it easy to charge the earphone, just slide the cover open. They magnetically attached when you put them in, so they’ll stay and ensures they are making a good connection. One cool feature about the charging case is that when you turn it upside down it can function as a charger for your phone. There’s a button on the back, you press to activate this feature and it works great. It’s not a quick charge which is expected but again a handy feature to have it. When looking at the features, these do a great job, delivering a lot of features you’d want in your earbuds, like these they have an IPX6 water resistance rating which means they’re designed for the active user and as a result they can handle lots of sweat and heavy rain. Each earbud gives you up to 10 hours of battery life per charge and you can use each one independently which means you could have up to 20 hours of use if you want to use them one at a time.
The charging case will fully charge the earphones 5 times before it needs to be recharged. So you have around 50 to a 100 hours of potentially being able to use these, depending on whether you use the earbuds as a pair or individually. These earbuds also support fast charging, so as an example for every 5 minutes of charging time in the case, your earbuds will receive one hour of battery life. There are touch controls on each earbud which allow you to pause and play songs, as well as raising and lowering the volume. You can also answer and reject phone calls and you can use voice assistance from either Siri or Google. PaMu slide use bluetooth 5.0 to connect to your device. Since they’re using a more modern chip, the Bluetooth connection works a lot better through walls and it doesn’t get affected as much in areas where lots of other Bluetooth devices are being used. For example you’ll notice a huge difference while using these when running because you can have your phone in your pocket on your arm or anywhere on your body, and you’ll have a solid connection the whole time. There’s also no latency problems so you can use these while watching Netflix or YouTube and not have people’s lips out of sync. The audio call quality is really good. In fact, it’s some of the best I’ve experienced of any earbud I’ve used. The person on the other end can hear you really well. These were great for using while working out or exercising. I tried using these for longer periods of time while working on the computer as an example, and they do an excellent job of staying put in your ears even while running or working out. So for me personally, these are perfect.
Regarding noise isolation these are above average for this type of earbuds and that makes these great for using in a gym or outside or using public transportation where you want to be able to hear what you’re listening to. There’s a little bit of emphasis in the low end which does a nice job, bringing more contemporary genres to life. So listening to popular music rap and especially electronic or dance music sounds incredible.
If you’re looking for the best wireless earphones that you can wear several hours at a time then depending on how your ears react to the weight and hard-plastic feel of the housing, this may be a deal-breaker for some, but otherwise, the overall features and sound quality make these an excellent choice and an incredible value you get a massive amount of battery life. The ability to charge your phone, quit charging of your earphones, a strong and stable bluetooth connection, automatic pairing and credible sound quality, good passive noise isolation and they sound really good. All the benefits I mentioned makes these the best choice.
