Overview

Update: These are no longer available. We recommend you take a list at our wireless earbuds here to find a suitable replacement.

What we liked:

The SHUHUA earphones are built for active sports and live up to their IPX7 rating so you’ll be safe if you get caught in the rain. Officially speaking, the manufacturer states that the earbuds are safe from accidental immersion in water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.

We believe they have the softest construction of Silica gel tips may take awhile to get used to, but will definitely stay in your ear and not (annoyingly) fall out.

Can I take and make calls?

Yes, the earbuds have a built in microphone. At first, you may not even notice it. But there is a hole in the middle of the right earbud. You are free to use earphones for answering and making calls.

When you receive an incoming call, hit the multifunction button while the earphones are connected.

What you will find in the box

-wireless earbuds itself (of course)
– charging cable (USB to Micro USB)
– different sizes (S/M/L) of eartips to match your ear
– instructions and manual
– clip to shorten cable
– compact carrying case

The SHUHUA Bluetooth Headphones are equipped with CVC 6.0 noise cancellation technology. One of its main purposes is for enabling clear-sounding phone conversations while suppressing background noise (such as ambient, road or other noises) digitally, which in simple words means – your conversation will be digitally filtered to reproduce a clear sounding voice.

CVC is only applied to phone conversations. Listening to music is not affected (as many marketing tricks suggest). The earbuds only isolate your ears physically providing passive noise cancellation.

Battery Life

The battery life of the 150 mAh earbuds is one of the Shuhua Earbuds’ stronger points. Playback time is up to 9 Hours, accompanying you for the full work day and then some. Once the battery is less than 30%, you will gently be reminded with “Battery Low” voice prompts.

What about the warranty?

You are secured with a 1 Year Warranty and a 30 days no-questions-asked return policy.

There have been a handful of cases of users requesting a replacement of the earphones due to some issues they noticed on Amazon, but the reports are all positive about customer service and a new set of earbuds was quickly sent as a replacement.

What we did not like:

The over-ear hooks are very soft so we worry that they may be prone to skipping a little on active jogging and intense running. This didn’t happen to us and the manufacturer has assured us that their latest models won’t skip.

Final thoughts:

It is more than worth buying this device for the price. You’re getting waterproof bluetooth headphones, good sound quality, comfort and excellent battery life.

That said, you’re picky on HD basses and extra sound is the main defining factor for your choice, you may need to go with either a wired device or a PowerBeats set of headphones (be prepared to spend beaucoup bucks however). But if you need a pair of good, battery-lasting and comfortable sport earbuds, these are the choice.
