Material and Build Quality
The neckband is built of solid material with a smooth plastic surface and the best part is it has been manufactured locally in India itself. The buttons provided on the neckband are quite tactile in nature and work seamlessly with the smartphone of your choice. With metallic earbuds and good quality rubberised shark fin gives it a sporty look as well as make very sturdy in your ear, and you can use it while playing sports or while taking part in any physical activity.
Coming to the most important part of any earphones – Audio quality, these earphones have a very clear and loud sound you may not even use its 100% volume. I used it on a maximum of 60% to 80%. When it comes to music bass, it feels good in such a price segment. But if you have used expensive earphones like Apple Airpods or Sony Earphones, then you will find much difference in it. But normal users with a low budget can definitely go for it.
U & I Prime Shuffle 2 boasts of long playback time of approximately 18 hours but whiling testing I found it can play around 16.5hours on a single charge with 60%-70% volume that is also very good. When it comes to its charging it takes around 2 hours with a laptop USB. The in-built microphone is of average quality and reduces some of the background noise around you while you talk in public.
Basic Features & Connectivity
The Shuffle 2 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 for enhanced connectivity and provides you with a transmission range of up to 10 meters. You can enjoy your favourite games with ease with low latency. It works the best if you are into casual gaming of sorts. The buttons on the neckband allow the user to play, pause, skip to next, skip to the previous track with ease. The power on/off button on the Shuffle 2 also acts as a button to activate Siri or Google Assistant with ease. All you need to do is hold the middle button for approximately 3 seconds.
For a gadget priced at Rs. 699. the U & I Prime Shuffle 2 comes loaded with brilliant features. The lithium-polymer battery used in this gadget can be charged with the help of a Micro USB cable which you also get inside the box. The cable is of excellent build as well. This product may not have the best features on the sheet, but it gets the job done at a very affordable price tag.
