iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds & Charging Case that doubles as a Speaker

For people that spend a lot of their time on-the-go, it’s important that they bring something entertaining to do during their time traveling, especially during long flights. Something like a pair of headphones or earbuds will allow them to listen to their favorite tunes during their travels so that it doesn’t get too boring. Nevertheless, whenever you’re on-the-go, that also means that you’ll be packing your most important belongings with you, which might also mean a bulky and heavy pack. However, instead of bringing a bulky set of wireless headphones on your next travel, consider bringing some smaller and lighter, something like the iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds.

The iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds are sweatproof truly wireless earbuds that deliver a superior sound performance, even while you’re on-the-move, and its all thanks to their flawless Bluetooth connectivity.

Furthermore, they also come with an included Carrying/Charging Case that simultaneously doubles as a Bluetooth speaker and battery charger, which not only gives users the option to listen to their favorite music out loud (on Speaker Mode), but also allows them to always keep their iLive earbuds close to a full charge.

Let’s take a look at this cool wireless earbuds and check everything they have to offer.


The iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds are compact and lightweight wireless earbuds, measuring 1.02 inches long by 1.06 inches by 0.87 inches tall.

As mentioned before, these are sweatproof wireless earbuds that were not only designed with utility in mind, but also with style. They feature a simple, yet stylish design, coming in a simple black color that allows them to easily blend in with any choice of clothing you decide to go with.

Additionally, and as mentioned earlier, these also come with a small Carrying/Charging Case, which is just slightly larger than the earbuds themselves, measuring 3.66 inches long by 1.85 inches by 1.42 inches tall.

Each iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbud also comes equipped with a powerful 16mm sound driver that can offer its users a crystal-clear sound experience.

The iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds feature a Frequency response of 20Hz – 20kHz, a Nominal Sound Impedance of 16ohms, and work at a Sound Sensitivity Level of 98dB +/-3dB.

Additionally, the iLive Earbuds also come equipped with a built-in Bluetooth speaker and a built-in microphone that allow you to use the earbuds for listening to your favorite tunes and to also conveniently take phone calls.


The iLive Earbuds also pack a super easy-to-use and very intuitive interface, bringing on-ear controls to users’ fingertips.

These On-ear Controls include Bluetooth Pairing, Play/Pause Soundtrack actions, Phone Call Answering, and On/Off actions.


As mentioned before, the iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds are truly wireless earbuds, and as such, they work as a True Wireless Stereo audio solution via Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.

To link both earbuds together via Bluetooth you really don’t have to do anything. Simply power on the earbuds by removing both of them from the case or touch and hold their Function Touch Pad.

As soon as you do that, they’ll automatically pair up with each other after just a few seconds, and a simple voice prompt will also announce that their link has been successful.


Each one of the iLive Earbuds is powered by DC battery power, meaning that each earbud comes equipped with a built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery that can offer around 6 hours of playtime (battery life) at 50% volume.

Recharging the earbuds is both quick and easy. All you have to do is place both of the earbuds inside their Carrying/Charging Case, each one on its respective slot (L-Slot for the Left-Side Earbud and R-Slot for the Right-Side Earbud).

Lastly, just power up the Carrying/Charging Case by using the included Micro-USB cable and connecting it to the case’s Micro-USB port for a quick battery recharge. Recharging the earbuds should take you no more than 3 hours.

The case’s LED power indicator will allow users to know when power is being transferred between the earbuds and their proprietary charging case, while the case’s charge indicator will inform users about how much charge their earbuds have at any given moment.

Additionally, the Carrying/Charging Case can also be used as a speaker, and just like the earbuds, it comes equipped with a built-in rechargeable battery that can provide around 4~5 hours of playtime (battery life) at 50% volume.


While the earbuds are on and connected to your device (Smartphone for example), just place either the left or both earbuds in their case and close the case’s cover to turn on the case’s built-in speaker.

As soon as that’s done, users will be able to hear audio out loud directly from the case’s speaker.

As the earbuds’ On-ear Controls will obviously be out of reach, by using a Bluetooth device, users can conveniently control the Play/Pause functionalities, as well as sound volume and even the phone call functions.


Inside each package users will find: their pair of iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds, an included proprietary Carrying/Charging Case and a Micro-USB to USB cable (to keep everything powered up and recharged), a User’s Guide, and the earbuds’ 90-Day Limited Warranty Sheet.
