The summer so far has been pretty sweltering. I know because I spend almost every day downtown among sweaty tourists, and glaringly hot city streets. Ah, midtown. I’ve been digging up and relying on every single piece of light clothing I have – which is saying a lot because I usually rock a NY’ers uniform, as in all black everything. Being as light and as unencumbered as possible is my way of attempting to escape the gross sticky heat that has settled on the city. I’ve even ditched my massive carry-everything purse. And speaking of accessories, I recently got my hands on VerveLife’s newest set of headphones, which I’m not going to lie is the coolest piece of tech in my bag right now.
I consider myself somewhat of a tech geek, like most millennials I’m always on the lookout for the next product that makes my life easier and my work life a more seamless experience. VerveLife is totally there for me on that front, they’re a new brand just recently releasing a new range of wireless connected audio and video devices. Including these VerveOne Smart Earbuds.
These babies allow me to stay connected to my tech, minus the wire. If you’re like me, then you probably carry earbuds in your purse or bag, and you’ve probably damaged the wiring in your headphones tugging them out from the tangled mess in your bag. I can’t tell you how many pairs of headphones and earbuds that I’ve had to replace doing that. The VerveOne Smart Earbuds are completely wireless, so no more untangling wires from the bottom of my purse.
The VerveOnes come in a charge case, which is basically your charging station as well as a travel-friendly case. You twist the case to open it, and you also twist and pull (or push if inserting) your headphones to remove them from their slots. A variety of ear gels are provided, and Verve encourages you to find the right fit – meaning your left and right ear canal might have a different size. I actually never thought of that, which is probably why one side of my earbuds usually fits and the other doesn’t – at least it used to, now I have the proper size gels so my VerveOne earbuds are staying put.
You just pair them up with your Bluetooth device, technically the left earbud connects with your device and the right connects with the left – which you should keep in mind when trying to pass an earbud over to a friend or relative. You can also use the left as a single-unit device. It’s definitely an easy to use device, there are no complicated directions, charging is a breeze and the earbuds even let you know when they’re in need of a charge.
I’ve been using them for a while now. They recommend that you keep the earbuds within a short distance from your device for ideal connectivity. I like to keep my phone on the table by my bed, which is right by my head, and let some music play while I study or read. I can sit up and adjust my space without snagging on a wire or having to remove the earbuds. The convenience is great. If you’re a runner, you’ll love being able to stay connected without the wire, and these are compact enough to fit in your shorts or toss into your gym bag. The VerveOnes are a perfect accessory for work, school, relaxing, enjoying your latest playlist or taking an important call. With a deep HD sound – and Siri & Google connectivity – plus, up to 12 hours of playtime, I can officially say I’m obsessed with them!
