Specifications

The EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic comes in seven different colors and they have three sizes of ear tips included. The drivers are 6 mm units, the impedance is 16 ohms, and sensitivity is 101dB. The frequency response is 20Hz to 18 kHz and it has a cord that is 1.1m long. They are available right now for $24.99.

In Use

The EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic are very nice looking earbuds. My review set was the royal blue color and I liked the style a lot. The ear tips that came with the earbuds are also colored on the inside like the body of the speaker housings. The thing I noticed right away about the EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic is that they are very small and lightweight.

That is a great thing if you like to move around with earbuds in your ears. Being small means, they are comfortable and being lightweight means that they will stay in place even if you are at the gym. The mic that is integrated onto the cord works well for making and receiving phone calls and it has a multipurpose button.

That button will pause/ play your music or answer and end calls. Three clicks on the button will skip forward to the next track while two will start your track over or skip backwards to the previous track. The call quality with the mic was good, it picks up wind noise in moderate breezes but overall it works well.

The budget price of the EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic means that you can't expect the best sound out there. There is very little bass to speak of and the overall sound was a little flat. If you just want a cheap set of earbuds that performs acceptably and has a mic and remote for your iPhone the EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic will do the deed. If you are an audiophile hoping for budget sound, these are not the buds you are looking for.

For the price the EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic do a decent job, but you can get much better sound quality for another $20. Still users on a budget that don’t care for thumping bass might find this to be a great option.

Verdict

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Small
  • Good looking

Cons

  • Flat sound
  • No bass to speak of
 

Conclusion

The best thing going for the EarPollution Luxe Bud with mic is that it has a mic and a control that works with the iPhone for under $25. The sound quality isn't that great though so you have some trade offs. Users on a budget that can live without bass may like these.
