Padmate X13-PAMU Wireless Earbuds Review: Water-Resistant, Stylish, Great Fit and Low Price

The Padmate X13-PAMU Wireless Earbuds are only $79.99, a true bargain considering what you get.

I have reviewed this year already two new wireless earbuds. The technology to drop the wires completely on earbuds is truly here now. You don't have to compromise anymore for not having a neckband. The Padmate X13-PAMU Wireless Earbuds are a perfect implementation what is currently possible with wearable technology.

Padmate designed the PaMu-X13 wireless earphones to be light-weight, compact, stay in place, and sound great. They are water-resistant, making them ideal for sports. I pulled out all the stops for you and went for a trail run wearing the Padmate X13-PAMU to give you truly a hands-on review of the X13-PAMU. See photos in the gallery.

First I take the earbuds out of the charging box. They automatically connect to each other and to the iPhone when you put them in your ears. You only have to add the earbuds once in our Bluetooth connection settings (PaMu) on your smartphone.

You hear a voice confirming the successful auto connections. The Padmate earbuds hang in my ears. They make you look like these hipsters with earlobe hole rings. There is no pain involved though. On the contrary, the Padmate wireless earbuds are extremely comfortable to wear. The small hook is enough to keep the earbuds in place. The earbuds cover most of my earlobes. The stylish texture makes the Padmate earbuds almost look like jewelry.

I was running for an hour and not once I had the feeling that the earbuds would come out. Also, the connection never dropped. Only when I held my iPhone there was some interference. When I kept the iPhone in my back pant pocket the music kept pumping without interruption. Speaking of connection. The reach is impressive. You can well over 10m away from your smartphone and the connection still holds up.

The Padmate X13-PAMU earbuds have no buttons. They are controlled through touch. You can play and stop the music and take calls. A double tap on the master earphone means next track. To take an incoming call, tap once. To reject the call tap twice. There is no option to control volume.

The battery life is about 3.5hours like on most wireless earbuds. It takes 2 hours to fully charge both earbuds. The PaMu-X13 carrying case enables you to fully charge the earbuds 3 times. The carrying case opens with the push of a button on the side. Then you just slide the cover to the side. I should it to a couple of people and everyone loved the design.

The music quality is very decent. The bass is though not as deep as on the Axum Gear we reviewed earlier this year. The Axum Gear wireless earbuds are though $110 more expensive than the Padmate PaMu earbuds. For $79.99, I don't think you can find better wireless earbuds than the Padmate X13-PaMu.

The Padmate PaMu earbuds started out as Indiegogo project raising almost $1 million. You can buy the Padmate X13-PAMU wireless earbuds now on the padmate online shop for $79.99 in black or in white. These wireless earbuds ship world-wide for free.
