Accurate, an OEM company that has been gathering quite a bit of fame for itself due to its affordable and high-quality smartphone accessories, has announced yet another addition to its TWS(True Wireless Sound) earbud series in Nepal. Accurate AT-01 is the second TWS product in its series, with the first being the popular, Accurate HX-03 introduced last year. In this article, we talk about these new earbuds, its build quality and specs, and finally, its price in Nepal and availability.
Finding good wireless earbuds in Nepal: The dilemma
If you’ve tried your hand at buying wireless stereo earbuds, you’ll know that the truly good ones aren’t cheap. On the top, both in terms of sound quality and build, we have Apple AirPods, the Sony WF-1000XM3, etc. However, they aren’t very…. wallet-friendly. This can be a big deal if you just want a casual set of wireless earbuds but don’t want to drop serious cash for it.
Below that, other brands like Redmi, Mi, Realme, Raycon, Accurate, etc stand tall at a relatively lower price point, although there are some compromises done to achieve this. On the cheapest side of the fence, we have the generic Chinese brands. We have one thing to say about them: DON’T BUY! Not only do they sound absolutely horrendous, but many of them also don’t comply with health standards – their volume ranges, treble sharpness, etc go well above and beyond what is good for you. Build quality isn’t very good either, so you’re better off going with other brands, one of which is Accurate, established in 1994, and it’s AT-01 earbuds, which we’re going to go in-detail about right now.
Accurate AT-01 True Wireless Stereo earbuds
“Affordability without compromise”
The Accurate AT-01 comes in a standard square-shaped box with rounded edges and a snappy magnetic lid. The box comes with four LED lights that indicate battery and charging.
Inside, we have the two earbuds which look pretty stylish and sleek at first glance. They are your typical wireless earbuds – it is equipped with a single tiny speaker panel on each, and look reminiscent of the Apple AirPods. There is a metallic rim in the middle, and the earbud ends off where their mic is. The earbuds are pretty comfortable to wear and don’t drop off easily either.
The earbuds and case is made out of plastic. The speaker-end of the earbud is also plastic, and doesn’t come with a soft silicone cover.
Listening and noise reduction:
The earbuds can be paired as a single or double earbud – depending on your need; you can connect only a single or both of these earbuds. This is pretty standard when it comes to earbuds, and using this; you can get a hassle-free experience in mono or stereo. Connectivity is done via Bluetooth 5.0, which allows for a secure connection and less latency.
The buds come with Noise Reduction as well. With the help of Accurate’s noise-canceling technology, call and listening experience is improved by reducing ambient noise. This makes the receiver side of the speech clearer during calls as well. The earbuds integrate well with both Android and iOS voice assistants so you can send your phone voice commands without taking your phone out of your pocket.
Battery and Playback:
This is a defining feature for any wireless earbud, and the Accurate AT-01 doesn’t disappoint us in this sector. The AT-01 TWS earbud promises a pretty impressive continuous playback time. With the help of the charging case, you can get 12hours of total playback time. With the use of earbuds only, you can still get 4.5 hours of playback in one go without charging.
Pricing in Nepal and Availability:
At its launch, the Accurate AT-01 will be available in three colors variant white, pink, and black at an MRP of NRs 3499. The earbud will be available through offline retail stores as well as online retail stores, Accurate at DarazMall.
