Lightsky Bluetooth Wireless Earphones Wireless Earbuds Review

I am music-lover and I cannot imagine a day without my earphones. It has been my routine to listen to my favorite music every day I go to work and back home. I think this is one of most indispensable smartphone accessories but at the same time this accessory gets easily broken.

Based on my experience, most of the time the connection between the earphone jack and the cable wires get pinched or soldering inside the rubberized protective covering gets loose. Replacement of the same branded accessory would cost you much.

  1. I think i am going to give these Light sky Wireless Earbuds Bluetooth Wireless Earphones a try, I am in the middle of an important training that require the use of earphones when listening in on live classes.My current earphones can not cancel out other sounds so its hard to pay attention without being distracted when at home because there is usually a lot going on

     I also think the 90 day warranty and life time customer support is a great incentive.  I would like to find out how the volume can be managed effectively when a way from your device? and secondly is it easy to access parts if it needs repair?

    • Hi Florence! It is important for earphones to have noise-cancelling feature just like this Lightsky Wireless Earbuds especially if you want to not be disturbed. Aside from the HD stereo sound, Lightsky Bluetooth connectivity range can reach up to 33 feet. This device does not have volume control of itself so you cannot change the volume if you cannot reach your phone. So you need to set the volume from your phone prior to going far away from your smartphone. The manufacturer offers 2 years warranty so in case of damage or malfunction, you can contact the seller for replacement. 

  2. Hi Dan, nice thorough review. These have been my experiences when using wired earbuds. The wire gets caught and one or all of  the following occur. Buds pull out of my ears, wire, buds or jack are damaged ruining the player. Frustrating. Might have to give these a try. Any reports of wireless interference?

    • Thanks Bill for sharing your experience about wired earphones. With the latest technology nowadays, everything is turning into wireless from wireless Bluetooth to wireless charging. These wireless devices are worth trying for. 

      Of course, just like in any Bluetooth device, thick walls or objects can interfere with its connectivity. 

  3. This is an amazing earbud. I am also one of those people that love music and can’t do without my ear piece. I have always wanted to make use of a Bluetooth ear piece and your recommendation seems like the perfect choice.

    One thing I don’t like about it is the fact that it lasts for just three hours. It would have been awesome if it stayed longer than that. Also you mentioned it been best suited for recent apple phones. I make use of an iphone6 and was wondering if that would be compatible with it.

    • Hi Jay! The charge can lasts from 3 to 4 hours for continuous call but if you are only listening to music as you have mentioned, it can last up to 10 hours. Calls consume more power since you are transmitting data through the network. Unlike listening to music only. What is meant by compatible with latest Apple phones is that this device can pair even for higher versions of Bluetooth which is common in latest smartphones. So this device is also compatible with iPhone 6. By the way, Bluetooth versions are backward-compatible.

  4. Hey Dan, Thanks for the article! I am always looking for a good set of earphones. I often work at shops and other public places drawing or painting. When I am out and about, I like to have music to listen too when no one is talking to me (or ignoring me LOL!). I do have a pair of big bulky earphones, but they are often a deterrent for people to walk up and statr a conversation. PLUS! They have a wire! This confines me to about 10 ft. I bought a cheap pair of wireless earbuds from a local “dollar store” and well they lasted about 3 days and they quit connecting…Thank you for this review, I will definitely look into maybe buying a pair of these…

    • Hi Jimbo! Thanks for sharing your experience. I personally do not use the bulky earphones especially outside. I prefer the earbuds only that can hide in your ears and since they are lightweight than headphones. Yes, if people see you with bulky headphones on your ears, they will think that you do not want to talk to somebody. The good thing about wireless is that they provide you freedom of movement and free from wire tangles. 

  5. Thanks so much for this review!

    I’ve been trying to decide on what wireless earphones to get for ages but it’s so hard to find some that are reasonably priced and good quality.

    It’s great that it is water/ sweat resistant too because I always wear headphones when I’m running but the wire gets so annoying sometimes. 

    Thanks again

    Mike

    • Hello Mike! Yes, Lightsky wireless earbuds is recommended for active people who love to exercise because it is sweat-resistant and of course since it is wireless. So you do not have to worry about wires being caught during exercises.
