Raycon Earbuds have been gaining a lot of attention lately. Part of this is due to their sponsorship endorsements by youtube personalities and celebrities. Raycon Earbuds are a product created by Ray J, an American singer, and songwriter, to provide high-quality premium earbuds at a lower cost. All their earbuds are Bluetooth and wireless. They pride themselves on being the best Bluetooth earbuds on the market. But are they? Are Raycon Earbuds Worth It?
The most commonly purchased and marketed by their sponsorship endorsements are the E25 model. Costing $79.99 they are cheaper than most high-quality Bluetooth earbuds on the market. Since they are the most talked about, this review will be focusing on the E25s, but Raycon also offers a few other options.
Their E55 model is an upgraded version of their E50 model. These have a thirty-six-hour battery in the charging case compared to twenty-four hours in the E25 model. Their Work Performance earbuds come with six microphones for voice clarity when taking business calls. While it is usually noise-canceling there is an awareness mode that lets noise from your surrounding area enter the earbuds in the event you want to know what is going on around you.
The E25 earbuds come in heavy-duty packaging that includes earbuds their charging case, a charging cable, the six silicone tips, and instructions on how to use them. The E25 charging case is sleek, compact, hardy, and smaller than a charging adapter. Not only does this case conveniently hold the earbuds, but it also serves as a charging station. The case itself can hold twenty-four hours’ worth of power, able to fully charge the earbuds four times before needing to be plugged in. The earbuds themselves when out of the case can last for six hours.
The overall design of the earbuds in combination with its innovative minimalist case is aesthetically pleasing. The earbuds are available in a variety of colors such as Electric Blue, Black, White, Gold, Red, and Titanium. These earbuds have a waterproof rating of IPX4 which means that it is splashproof and can withstand sweat from your daily workout. They also have a built-in microphone to take calls. A button on the right earbud allows you to control pausing and unpausing audio.
The earbuds include six pairs of silicone tips ranging from extra small to extra-large so you can find the best fit for you. The right size should be able to fit snugly in your ear without falling out and maintain noise cancellation. They are incredibly comfortable and you may even forget that they are in your ears if the music is paused.
The Raycon E25 is very heavy on bass. If you are someone who values bass the most then this would be ideal for you. If you are looking for any other details then you may not like them. The mids tend to lose some clarity to the low-end range. The high-end range tends to suffer more in genres aside from rock, hip hop, or pop leading to lop-sided sound and some high-end notes can be sharp. They also do not have the best sense of sound stage. The sense of space is very narrow.
Overall if you are a serious audiophile who values the small details and does not care for bass then the Raycon E25 earbuds may not be right for you. If you are just a casual music listener who is looking for premium earbuds at a lower cost then they may be right for you. Personally, as a rock and heavy metal fan who listens to music occasionally when working out, it is worth the cost to me.
So are Raycons Worth It?
Are Raycon earbuds worth it? If I were to give a rating for the Raycon E25 earbuds, I would say they are four out of five stars.
They are great quality for the price with high-quality bass but this bass can drone out the mid and high-end range. The sound stage also appears very narrow. Compared to other high-end Bluetooth earbuds on the market for this price range, the Raycon E25 has the benefits of longer longevity (six hours playtime out of case per full charge) and a waterproof rating making it ideal for use at the gym. If you are a hardcore audiophile, who enjoys the details I would pass on the Raycon E25’s, but if you are a casual music listener who is looking for premium Bluetooth earbuds at an affordable cost with a waterproof rating then I would consider them as an option.
