Recently, Lenovo has stepped up its operations in the headset market. And today we are going to meet the brand Bluetooth headset that is an alternative to the Apple AirPods Pro, Lenovo LivePods or Lenovo LP1. Below you will know the main positive and negative points. Get ready!
Lenovo LivePods: design, construction and battery
The Lenovo LivePods comes with a compact, easy-to-carry charger base, similar to the Apple AirPods Pro. The finish is glossy, which makes it more prone to scratches and fingerprints, decreasing the product’s longevity.
The charging base has a notification LED on the front that informs the battery status. The Lenovo LivePods delivers up to 3 hours of music playback, which is little, it could be better, since the headphones have a larger body than other compact headphones.
Inside the base, we find two touch sensitive headphones with compact design and IPX4 protection finish, for splashing water.
When I put it in my ears, I felt a little pressure, which reveals that depending on the person, the headset can become a little uncomfortable with prolonged use.
Lenovo LivePods: how to pair with smartphone?
To pair Lenovo LivePods, it’s easy. Just open the charging base and remove the headphones at the same time that both will synchronize with each other. Then, simply search for the headphones on the smartphone’s Bluetooth list to establish a connection.
Lenovo LivePods: functions
Fortunately, Lenovo LivePods is very complete in terms of functions. We can skip / rewind / pause / unpause songs, increase and decrease volumes, answer and refuse calls and even access the virtual assistant.
Lenovo LivePods: audio test, microphone test and delay test
In the Lenovo LP1 audio test, I was surprised. The headset has a very high volume. When the volume is set to maximum, the tones do not burst. The audio is stereo. That is, we listen to all frequencies with good definition. I liked!
In the microphone test, the Lenovo LivePods audio captured by my computer turned out to be low, muffled and with a lot of noise and hissing. I didn’t like it and I don’t recommend it for videoconferencing.
In the delay test, the Lenovo LP1 showed subtle audio delay. That is, the sound feedback is not fully synchronized, but the Bluetooth stability is good enough to not delay the audio in videos and music.
Lenovo LivePods: is it worth it?
I think the Lenovo LP1 is worth it. After all, we are talking about a headset that costs half the price of the competition and that delivers quality audio, with all the desired functions. However, I do not recommend this headset if your purpose is videoconferencing.
