Design: Noise Shots X1 AIR
The shots X1 air are the smallest and lightest truly wireless earphones from noise with a smart and sleek look. They are so light that you will forget that you had them in your ears, trust me I can’t say the same for most of the truly wireless earphones. They only weigh 35 grams with the charging case and without the charging case, the earbuds only weigh 7.5 grams each.
Due to the lightweight and compact design, these become your perfect companion when in the gym or when commuting to work. The earbuds even with the case are easily portable and you can just toss them in your pocket.
Overall the noise shots X1 air look very attractive in the two-color variants carbon black and graphite grey. (I would go for the carbon black one.)
Sound: Noise Shots X1 AIR
The noise shots X1 air really shine when it comes to bass frequencies, which becomes even more apparent when you listen to bassy tracks. The superior AAC audio codec lets Shots X1 AIR deliver much better sound quality than headphones using the inferior SBC codec.
Of course, these don’t have the best sound stage when compared to other truly wireless earphones like the apple airpods but also keep in mind they come for a fraction of money of which the airpods cost.
Saying that, if you like your music bassy you will probably like the way the shots X1 air sound. These have a very natural sound stage, good passive noise isolation, and the sound quality is impressive.
Battery Life: Noise Shots X1 AIR
The battery life of the earbuds is awesome as they can last you easily 6 hours on full volume however the company claims a battery life of 7 hours. During our testing, these earphones lasted 6 hours smoothly after which we started seeing some audio dropouts.
They offer a standby time of 160 hours which is really great for a pair of truly wireless earphones. The earbuds have a 110 mAh battery inside which last 6 hours easily.
The only issue with the earphones is that the charging case doesn’t house a battery inside. So you will have to connect them through a micro USB cable to charge the earphones. The earphones get fully charged in about 2 hours which is not much.
Features and Performance: Noise Shots X1 AIR
Shots X1 Air have Bluetooth 5.0 inbuilt which offers stable connections, better battery life, and longer wireless range. During our testing, we faced no issue with regards to connectivity. The noise shots X1 air offer seamless connectivity, just get them out of the case and they will automatically connect to your device. We didn’t face any audio lag during playing online multiplayer games like PUBG or when bingeing our favorite shows on Netflix.
The shots X1 Air comes with touch sensors on both the earbuds making the really intuitive to use. A single tap on any earbud to play or pause music, double-tap the earbuds to change the tracks. To increase the volume touch and hold the right earbud and to decrease the volume touch and hold the left earbud. To activate any voice assistant Siri or Google assistant just tap the right earbud three times.
The shots X1 air also have dual mics in both the earbuds so they can be used for making calls. Tap any earbud right of left to pick up a call and just tap any of them during a call to end it.
These earbuds are IPX6 rated making them sweat, dust and splash-proof. So these can be your perfect companions for the hardcore gym session. The wireless range is also decent at 10 meters which is generally a standard in truly wireless earbuds.
