MevoFit Play N100 review

MevoFit the Indian startup known for their Fitness bands recently launched their sports wireless earphone called the MevoFit Play N100. It is one of those Neckband style earphones with the now popular magnetic join. Play N100 is the company’s first attempt into the wireless earphones market and from the looks of it, we aren’t quite impressed.

Box Contents

A complete list of items you get inside the box:

  • Ear tips
  • Micro USB charging cable
  • User instruction manual

Design

MevoFit Play N100 is based on the neckband design with the battery and logic board tucked away in it. Both the ends of the neckband are made out of plastic with the middle section made out of high-quality rubber for flexibility. There is a multifunction button on the left tip of the neckband that is used for taking or ending calls and powering on/off the earphones.

On the outer side of the same end of the neckband lies the volume buttons with dual actions, while the inner side houses the micro USB charging port. The drivers are made out of plastic with magnets inside them for the magnetic join which is purely used here for aligning the two earbuds. There are two sizes of ear tips included in the package using them you can achieve noise isolation.

Performance

The Play N100 comes with Bluetooth 4.1 and are the pairing process is fairly simple. Out of the box they are already in the pairing mode but that can also be triggered by a press and hold action on the multifunction button. The earbuds are moderately loud but lack details. The soundstage is leaned more towards bass but that gets muddy at times. For getting better bass out of them you need to choose the right ear tips and create a near-perfect seal to achieve that passive noise isolation that MevoFit talks about in their promotional material.

The call quality with the earphones was satisfactory with output via the inbuilt mics sufficient in most of the environments. When you receive a call, the earphones notify you by reading out the number, now this can be useful for some and annoying for others. So, we’ll leave up to you guys to decide.

Coming to the battery, the earphones come with 170mAh battery and according to the brand will last for up to 12 hours. In our testing, we found out the battery lasted close to 10 hours which is roughly 3 days of use. Charging times are also less with the earphones getting a full charge in under 2 hours.

Pricing

MevoFit Play N100 wireless earphones – INR 2,190

Pros

  • Decent Build quality
  • Above average call quality

Cons

  • No AptX support
  • Little overpriced

Verdict – Should you go for it?

With the Play N100, MevoFit seems to have focused more on the design aspect but still the earphone cable feels very fragile, the soundstage is more bass focused and it doesn’t overall help with the sound quality. One thing we did like is the battery life but other than this there is nothing much to appreciate. Priced at INR 2,190 on Amazon, the Play N100 are overpriced when looking towards their value proposition.
