Gone are the days when a wired earphone used to be essential inside the box while buying a new mobile phone. With technological advancement everywhere, this tiny and must-have device has undergone several changes.
According to the International Data Corporation ’s (IDC) India Monthly Wearable Device Tracker, released in February 2022, India’s truly wireless stereo (TWS) market witnessed a record year, shipping 20.3 million units with a healthy 74.7% YoY (year-over-year) growth in 2021.
The pandemic-driven use cases continued to generate the demand for smart audio devices, with tripled shipments YoY in the first half of the year. In view of the growing demand and market size, existing and new brands have been introducing several TWS earbuds to expand their product portfolio and cater to budget-conscious and premium customers. To strengthen its positing in the TWS market, the trusted brand Nokia recently added a new TWS device to its product portfolio. The brand launched its Go Earbuds+ with quite impressive features that too at a reasonable price.
Those who do not want to spend much on the hearable device can consider buying Nokia Go Earbuds+ as this gadget offers a premium look at an affordable price point.
In terms of the build and design, the Nokia Go Earbuds+ is visually very appealing. Available at Rs2300, the case comes with a matte finish look, Nokia branding, and an LED light on the front. Overall, it has an attractive look to catch anyone’s attention.
What’s in the box
The Nokia Go Earbuds+ TWS-201 comes in protective retail packaging. Inside the box, I found the basic accessories such as earbuds, a charging case, and two extra pairs of silicone ear tips (Large and Small), a charging cable, a user manual, and a warranty card. So, this is the complete kit of what you can expect.
Enclosed in a neat, matte black, with a flat cut along the contour, the case features the Nokia logo on the front, there is a charging indicator just below, and there is the Type-C port at the very bottom. I found some basic information written on the back of the case.
With Bluetooth 5.0, the Nokia Go Earbuds+ offers standard frequencies, from 20 to 20,000 Hz, impedance is 32 Ohm, and sound is stereo. This TWS device by Nokia comes with an IPX4 standard. It supports for mono mode and good bass. On a single charge, you will be able to enjoy around 6 hours of play, and about 20 more hours from a case that charges via Type-C in less than an hour. The charging case battery capacity is 300 mAh. The Nokia Go Earbuds+ weighs just 4.3 g, including a case which 45 g. You can enjoy a range of around 10 metre.
You can easily connect the buds without any hassle. You just need to take them out of the case, click the Bluetooth menu, find the TWS-201 model and connect it. The company is offering the earphones in two colors— Black and White. I got the Black one for review.
A notable aspect of the earbuds is, that they come with a slim, ergonomic design for a comfortable fit that lasts. Its IPX4 rating makes it sweat and water resistance, which means you are free to let your workout playlist blare, even if the weather turns bad during that morning jog.
With its 13 mm dynamic drivers and HD audio, you can feel a more enjoyable listening experience.
The touch-sensitive area of the Nokia Go Earbuds+ is available on one side of the leg. You just need to touch and hold the sensor for 3/5 seconds to turn the buds off and on physically.
After using it for around one week, I found the TWS device is appropriate for those who mostly like me use TWS for calls, music, and binge-watching. You can experience a bit of background sound outdoor due to single mic music. Those who want comfort and a brand warranty at an affordable price can go for the Nokia Go Earbuds+.
