If you are looking for a pair of earphones that look good, don’t cost your life savings, and have decent sound quality, you have come to the right place!
These are the Elago E5 earphones. Today, I will be reviewing the red and white color, but please know that they come in other colors.
The very first feature which stands out the most is the aluminum casing on the back of the earbuds. This aluminum not only makes the earphones feel of higher quality but also complements the stylish design of the E5’s.
Moving down, you get your controller. This controller contains a pause/play button along with a microphone. One feature I really wish this controller had is volume up and a volume down key.
Moving down to the tip, you get your standard 3.5mm audio jack. There’s not too much I can say about this except it gets a strong connection and works as intended.
So… How do they sound?
You know what, the Elago E5 earphones don’t sound bad at all. In fact, they sound good. Thankfully, there’s no cable noise which is something you can usually expect in this low price range. The only thing I’m displeased about is the comfort. After having these in for around an hour, your ear can really start to feel the pain. Elago does include three different ear pieces for different sized ears, but none of them seem to fit perfectly for me. Of course, no one’s ears are the same so it’s possible that they would be super comfortable on you. On top of the extra ear pieces, Elago also includes a protective rubber case which I couldn’t seem to figure out how the get the earphones in. All in all, these are a solid pair of earphones considering they’re only 30 bucks. They’re durable, they look great, they sound good, and they won’t break the bank.
