iClever is a brand under Hisgadget Inc., along with some other brands like OxyLED and Intocircuit. I’ve tested many of their products and found out that they are really great value for the money. The iClever BoostRun BTH06 is another budget pair of budget headphones. Let’s see if it’s any good.
Design & Features
In terms of design, the new iClever headphones feature some great improvement. They are no longer bulky and heavy as the previous iClever products. The headphones don’t look like a premium product but they don’t look cheap either. The exterior is still made of plastic, and the outside of the earbuds sports aluminum plates with the iClever brand name.
I’m impressed the most with the size of the wireless headphones. Surprisingly, they don’t look bigger than the wired options. I’m not sure if they move the battery to the in-line control piece or not, but the 2 earbuds are a lot more compact and lightweight now, so they are less likely to drop out of my ears. Probably they did move the battery because the charging port is placed on the in-line control now. The battery life of the headphones is pretty short as I often have to recharge them after about 4 hours of listening.
The two eartips fit snugly inside my ear canals and they are more secured with the hooks which also fit perfectly on my outer ears. I really love wearing the earbuds as they are comfortable and stay securely in my ears, even when I am exercising.
I just wish that the two earbuds could be attached together so that we could secure the cord around our neck. Actually, there are magnets inside but it seems like they are not designed for this function.
The Bluetooth range of the iClever headphones is good, however, I’ve still had some interruptions in every listening session.
Unlike the design and build quality, the audio quality didn’t impress me that much. Some reviewers complained that the iClever earbuds almost have no bass, but that’s totally incorrect. Once you find the right fit for your ears, you will hear a lot of the low frequencies. The sound signature is actually dominated by the bass. I think many people will love the overwhelming bass but it is too boomy for my taste. I prefer a tighter and more controlled bass, moreover, it shouldn’t make the sound muddy. The headphones don’t deliver a clear and detailed sound, so that might make your ears fatigued in a short period of time.
Having said that, the sound is totally acceptable for most average consumers. You can’t ask much for such a low price. Besides, I appreciate that the earbuds can isolate the ambient noises very well. They are not noise-canceling headphones but the amount of reduced noises is substantial.
- Compact and lightweight earbuds
- Comfortable and secure
- Great noise isolation
- Low price
- Occasional interruptions
- Muddy sound
- Short battery life
The iClever BoostRun BTH06 is among the cheapest and smallest wireless earbuds on the market. The sound quality is not great but it is tolerable when you use them on the go.
