Detel, the company behind inexpensive TVs and feature phones, has launched its first truly wireless Bluetooth earbud. Called Di-Pod, wireless earbuds will actually be available for Rs 2,199. Wireless earbuds will be available to purchase through Detel’s website, the mobile app. It can also be purchased from Flipkart, Amazon India and Paytm Mall. The company is actually joining a crowded market of wireless earbuds, which has gained popularity among consumers.
The Detail D-Pod is actually equipped with wireless earbud Bluetooth 5.0 and has a connectivity range of up to 10 meters. The earbuds are supported by a 300mAh battery and take one to two hours to fully charge. Once fully charged, earbuds are capable of providing playback times of up to five hours. The earbuds come with IPX4 ratings and protect against water splashes and are sweat-proof. Detel’s wireless earbuds also support digital assistants such as Google Assistant and Siri.
Yogesh Bhatia, founder and CEO in the Indian market, said, “In view of the increasing demand for wireless accessories in the Indian market, Detel has also launched its first wireless Bluetooth earbuds-Di-Pod.” “These earbuds provide the best in class music with an all-day comfort design, which will allow the user to use them for a long time. We are hoping to launch more such pocket-friendly products and continue to connect with 400 million unconnected Indians. ”
Detel Di-Pods, like other truly wireless earbuds, draw inspiration from Apple AirPods. It is lightweight and ultraportable which can be used for listening to music as well as calls. Earbuds have a design that should provide decent isolation from external sound. However, it lacks active noise cancellation. It uses a microUSB port for charging, which is a bummer in the age of the USB Type-C port. At Rs 2,199, the Detel Di-Pods seems to be a good alternative to the wireless earbuds available in the market.
