Lenovo’s newest release, the LP40, has just arrived on the channel!
Without rubber and with good finish, is the new LivePods worth the cost-benefit?
Find out everything about the Lenovo LP40:
Lenovo LP40: design, construction and battery
With a very elegant design, very different from the other Lenovo, the LP40 already starts attracting attention!
It has a very small, very light and compact loader base. Which makes it easy to carry without bulking in your pocket.
The charging base has a glossy black finish.
It is really very elegant, but unfortunately this finish brings less longevity to the product, since there is more propensity for scratches and fingerprints.
The Lenovo LP40 is charged using USB Type-C , which makes charging much faster, especially for those using an intelligent charger.
In addition, the base has a built-in button and LED! These are very interesting details, as the button controls pairing and reset, while the LED informs the battery status.
Speaking of the earphones, they are very small and compact, very reminiscent of the AirPods Pro!
They are very light earphones, with a format directed to the ear canal.
Unfortunately, due to such a small size, the autonomy of the earphones is only 3hrs of continuous music playback, with medium volume.
Good news is that the Lenovo LP40 has protection for water resistance, the Ip54 . So, if a drizzle falls while you are using the earphones on the street, it will be protected.
Lenovo LP40: fixation
In the fixation test, the Lenovo LP40 surprised for being very comfortable, as well as being well molded.
Despite being a earset without rubber, it proved to be very fixed, without moving during more sudden movements.
Lenovo LP40: how to pair with the smartphone?
The Lenovo LP40 has easy pairing.
Just remove the earphones from the charging base and they are already available in the Bluetooth list.
Lenovo LP40: functions
The Lenovo LP40 has a very responsive touch sensitivity.
1 tap: pause/unpause
2 taps right: + volume
2 taps left: – volume
3 taps right: skip music
3 taps left: resume music
press 1.5s: virtual assistant
Lenovo LP40: audio test, microphone test and delay test
In the audio test, the Lenovo LP40 left something to be desired when it comes to bass.
It proved to be a earset more focused on the treble, which may please some, but not all music lovers.
This “preference” for the highs ends up camouflaging the other tones, which are not well defined.
In addition, when turned at maximum volume, the sound becomes a little shrill. Therefore, it is not a earset that has a good stereo effect.
What should be the great advantage of the Lenovo LP40 is its Bluetooth technology, which promises low latency in games.
So I was excited for the delay test!
In the test, the Lenovo LP40 had a slight delay of 0.5s.
It is worth mentioning that it was tested on a entry-level smartphone , the Galaxy A01.
I believe that if used on a high-end smartphone, or advanced intermediary, it will not present any delay!
So, it really carries a little more advanced technology.
In our microphone test, the Lenovo LP40 did not prove to be a good choice.
The microphone transmits a slightly muffled sound, with some noises and hisses.
Apparently, the conversation was not a concern for Lenovo.
Lenovo LP40: is it worth it?
Um … depends on your purpose!
The handset brings a very beautiful and elegant design, reminiscent of the AirPods Pro. In addition, it has a water resistant protection.
The overpowering of high-pitched sounds causes the other tones to be in the background, which favors some songs and disadvantages others.
Therefore, depending on your musical style, it may be a good option.
If the intention is games, it can prove to be a good earphone. After all, it presented a delay of only 0.5s, this in a very basic entry smartphone.
But, it is worth remembering, that the autonomy is only 3hrs.
If you are looking for a video conference earphone, I don’t think this is a good option, but it is acceptable for video calls.
So, it may or may not be good value for money, it depends on your purpose!
