The Twinpods feature Bluetooth 4.2 wireless connectivity with a claimed range of 33 feet, and the earbuds can be charged using the charging case, which holds enough power in its battery to charge the earbuds thrice over. This promises up to 16 hours of usage time on a single full charge of the dock, which translates to about five hours of continuous usage before you’ll have to place the earbuds into the charging dock for more juice.
The headset also comes with three sets of ear tips of varying sizes, and don’t rely on hooks to stay in place in your ears.
Zoook has made a big entry into the Indian market, and sells a variety of mobile accessories including wireless speakers, headphones and powerbanks. Some of its products are strikingly similar to popular options from other brands, such as Bose, Logitech, JBL and Creative.
The company’s products are priced affordably and competitively, and this latest product continues in that tradition, having a strong resemblance in design and function to the Apple AirPods, which were launched last year alongside the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
