Having previously looked at the NeoBuds Pro I’m super excited about the following press release. The NeoBuds S sound great on paper, I’m looking forward to checking them out in the full review. Read the full press release below.
The award-winning manufacturer of premium sound systems, Edifier, has announced the new Neobuds S.
I’ve now completed my review of the Edifier NeoBuds S.
Distinct from other noise cancelling earphones, the Neobuds series was one of the first Hi-Res certified and truly wireless earbuds on the market. Boasting two innovative Knowles balanced armature and multi-diaphragm dynamic drivers, the NeoBuds S now supports world-leading Snapdragon Sound technology and a brand new colourway: a refreshed all-black, ultra sleek and modern take on the original design.
Offering a low profile, stealth aesthetic that’s sure to make you stand out amongst the crowd, the new colourway sits perfectly alongside the existing white and silver/black options and continues in the brand’s spirit for matching style with functional, forward-thinking design. With SnapDragon Sound the new Neobuds S also take advantage of Qualcomm’s latest processors, Bluetooth audio SoCs, and codecs like aptX Adaptive to achieve playback of hi-fi music up to 96kHz – promising cd-quality audio via Bluetooth for the first time.
Neobuds S again provide listeners with a listening experience only traditionally found in speakers and over-ear headphones. Available in a more convenient, compact and wireless package, the Neobuds S match bi-amping with DSP-based active crossover technology to ensure the drivers are working in tandem, producing deep bass and crisp treble frequencies. Achieving some of the truest, purest tones on the market, the NeoBuds Pro have won over a sea of fans since their release back in 2021, scoring rave reviews and a CES 2022 Innovation honour to boot. Looking to build on this moving forwards, Edifier’s new NeoBuds S sustain the highest levels of audio quality achievable at this price range.
The Neobuds S also has distinctly unique advanced noise-cancelling features utilising Edifier’s smartest ANC algorithm to date. Offering users a quieter environment to enhance the listening experience while also protecting their hearing from unwanted external noise and interruptions, the earphones feature three precisely positioned internal microphones specifically designed for cutting out disruptions and focusing intently on those important on-the-go phone calls. The three microphones work in tandem together to offer enhanced noise cancellation, helping to provide clear, wind-resistant indoor/outdoor communications.
Paired with an advanced 80ms low latency gaming mode, 6-hour playback (19hrs with the charging case) and 1-hour fast-charging capabilities, the Neobuds S are a premium option, capable of outperforming earbuds at double the price. The NeoBuds S provide a seamless design, unparalleled comfort, chic style, and high-quality technology, making them ideal for consistent use by audiophiles with a taste for luxury and value.
The Edifier NeoBuds S are available for £149.99 on Amazon.
