VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • These earbuds are incredibly dainty, lightweight, and discreet.
  • Given their diminutive size, the buds deliver pretty decent sound: When they're working well, expect the treble to sparkle and the bass to sound punchy.
  • The Earin buds can be charged in the capsule case--off and on--to keep them juiced throughout the day.

CONS

  • Testers report connection issues and intermittent problems with the stability of the sound.
  • You can't tell at a glance how much battery life the charging capsule itself has left.
  • The Earin buds ship with the foam ear tips only; the silicone type might be your preference.
You won’t find a single cord with these teensy Bluetooth earbuds tucked in your ears. The buds can be safely stored--and charged--in the hard capsule. Earin specs say the unit gives you 2 hours and 50 minutes of playtime in stereo mode and up to 11 hours in mono mode. The capsule can charge the buds two or three times before the capsule itself needs to be recharged. The company’s free iOS and Android app lets you boost the bass, adjust the volume, and check each bud’s battery level. The box includes two pairs of Comply foam tips and one set of ear stabilizers, if you need a way to anchor the buds more securely.

A lack of sparkle in the very high end is apparent on some tracks and the low bass can lack texture at times, but they have a solid mid-range. Taking the soundstage into account they are quite capable and are very good considering there are no wires anywhere.

Except for one shortcoming where there are irregular drop outs between the two buds, the Earin is a world-beater product. My main fear was that the final version would be too small to fit restfully in the ear but that seems to have been worked on perfectly and the product is ready to go head to head on the market with its main competitors...

If you’ve trolled the comments section on the company’s Kickstarter page, you already know that the Earins suffer from one big, unavoidable problem: dropouts.... In the case of the Earins, this can be a minor annoyance most times, and a flat out insult at others.

On the few occasions when an Earin did come loose and fall out, the safety net offered by other Bluetooth earphones – the cable running behind the neck – wasn't there of course, resulting in a frantic floor scramble to find the missing unit.

When they work, Earin earbuds work beautifully. Gorgeously. Beyond anything I’d hope for any earbud, with a sound that penetrates the skull with sultry lows and piercing highs in a way that no earbud has before – wireless or otherwise.

As earbuds go, they sound great, and they stay put in your ears thanks to foam tips that create a solid seal every time.

I admit, I didn't think such a small pair of headphones could pack enough power for me..I was wrong. I purposefully played a song with heavy bass and was surprised to hear rich, full sound.

Vigorous exercise with the Earins cannot be recommended, as once they fall out they are hard to spot on dark floors or pavements, but for walking and the usual jostling of train and tube travel they coped just fine.

The Earin wireless earbuds far exceeded our expectations in the sound-quality department. A first-generation product like this would have received a little leniency from us, but we didn’t have to dish any out.

In terms of sound, they’re clean, clear, and exceptionally precise. Listening to a mix that included Springsteen’s Atlantic City, Bowie’s Heroes, and Vance Joy’s Riptide, I consistently picked up more detail in music I know very well.

Chalk it up to either ear shape or clumsy fingers, but you will eventually drop one of them. Unlike some other fully wireless earbuds, the Earins are totally cylindrical, so they'll start rolling away the moment they hit the ground.
