Design wise the earphones follow the traditional neckband style wherein the battery and Bluetooth module are placed in a tube going around your neck. This design language is found on earphones from brands like LG and Samsung. The entire earphone is made out of plastic while the earbuds are metal and a have magnetic join in them. There are three buttons on the right side of the neckband while the left side sports the Syska logo.
The earphones come with IPX4 rating meaning they are just and water resistant up to some extent and that reflects in the design and the overall build. Due to the IP rating, the microUSB charging port has a rubber flap on it which protects the port from water damage. The three market buttons have raised dots on them for easy access. Coming to the cable, Syska has used good quality anti-tangle cables.
The pairing process is easy and simple, long pressing the power button powers on them and they go straight into pairing mode. The earphones get reasonably loud considering their size which is due to the 10mm driver size that Syska has gone for. There is an emphasis on bass & vocals and they seem to be tuned for Indian users. The overall soundstage is more leaned towards the vocals making them best suited for people who enjoy clean vocals.
The brand has used a feature called HDAB, that offers HD sound with precision and equalizer. There are presets available for both Play Music and iTunes. Talking about the battery, Syska hasn’t mentioned the battery capacity in the documentation. During our tests, the earphones lasted close to 4 hours at 50-70% volume which is decent, while it 2 hours to completely charge them.
Syska Reverb C2 wireless earphones – INR 2,599
- Good Build quality
- Magnetic Join
- Amount of bass
- High charging time
- Tad bit overpriced
Verdict – Should you go for it?
The Syska Reverb C2 wireless earphones do provide decent sound and have good build quality. But the INR 2,600 cannot be justified, considering the amount of competition that this price bracket also has. The earphones are meant for people looking for something for their workouts or strolls and are definitely not for audiophiles.
