While wired headphones and wired earphones require having a wire to be connected to a user’s sound source (most commonly, a Smartphone), wireless earphones can establish that same connection in a much easier way, and that’s obviously by using a wireless connection, which is typically Bluetooth (either 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, or even 5.0 – this strongly depends on what features manufacturers integrate into their earphones models). Just like any other Bluetooth-enabled device, Bluetooth-enabled earphones need to have enough battery power to work (have their internal battery recharged). However, as charging can be easily achieved by using either a USB / Micro-USB Charging Cable or even the earphones’ proprietary Wireless Charging Case, having a pair of True Wireless earphones can improve your quality of life when it comes to traveling and working on-the-go, allowing you to ultimately achieve an on-the-go lifestyle in a completely wireless fashion. This brings us to the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini.
The Padmate PaMu Slide Mini are Bluetooth 5.0 True Wireless earphones that come with an included Wireless Charging Case that ultimately provides them with a total of 30 hours of battery life for listening to music and/or performing phone calls.
However, while you might think that these True Wireless earphons are just from another standard brand (in this case, Padmate) that’s looking to make a name for itself, then think again. Sure enough, these are quite comparable to most other models available on the market, offering a slightly better Bluetooth connectivity performance and a great sound quality, just like many other companies vouch to deliver.
But, despite its Bluetooth improvements over other brands, what really makes the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini Earphones shine is their price tag advantage, which is simply a bargain if you ask me, and obviously, thanks to the company’s current limited-time discount, going at just $50 a pair, getting your own PaMu Slide Mini Earphones should be the easiest no-brainer deal you’ll ever take.
This really affordable price tag exists due to the fact that the company has its own factory, which is located somewhat close to its headquarters.
Accounting with over 20 years of experience on working with leading global companies (including Intel, Microsoft, Huawei, KDDI, LG as well as Softbank, ZTE, Meitu, and even Xiaomi), the company (Padmate) has achieved an in-depth understanding of R&D, design and manufacturing, which has helped them to greatly improve their manufacturing process for any future earphones models, which ultimately allows them to provide music fans worldwide with more affordable price tags for newly released True Wireless Earphones.
Now, back to the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini Earphones. Lete’s take a detailed look at these True Wireless Earphones and check just about everything that these have to offer.
DESIGN & SPECS
Starting with the earphones’ size, the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones are actually quite small, measuring just 1.47 inches long by 1.02 inches wide by 0.76 inches tall (37.5 x 26 x 19.5 mm), as well as ultra-lightweight, as each earphone weighs just a measly 0.25 oz. (7.1 g).
Not only is this pair of earphones ultra-small, but just like the PaMu Slide Mini, the earphones’ proprietary Carrying & Charing Case is also quite small, measuring just 2.76 inches long by 1.29 inches wide by 1.20 inches tall (70.2 x 33 x 30.5 mm).
Thanks to its super small size, the earphones’ Carrying & Charing Case can easily slip into pretty much any bag, as well as be easily carried inside your pants’ pockets. It’s also worth to mention that the company is focused on constnatly improving its customers’ quality of life, and so, they designed the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones’ Charging Case to be both smaller and lighter than the one from their PaMu Slide model.
Ultimately, thanks to the earphone’s Charging Case’s small size, you can take your PaMu Slide Mini with you anywhere and everywhere. This makes the PaMu Slide Mini great for anyone that spends most (or all) of their time on-the-go, whether that’s related to work or you’re just passionate about traveling.
Additionally, PaMu Slide Mini Earphones’ Carrying & Charging Case also offers a super-safe storage feature, as it comes equipped with Magnetic Anti-Drop Slots for both of the earphones, which ultimately makes this an Anti-Drop Charging Case.
This basically means that no matter how you open the case (facing upwards or even downwards), your PaMu Slide Mini Earphones will simply never fall out of their Charging Case unless you want to remove them, which can be done by gently grabbing them and just slowly pulling them out of their Magnetic Slots.
Now, taking a closer look at the earphones alone, these are designed in a very similar style to most other PaMu products. As such, the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones feature a very ergonomic design, which will offer its users a super snug fit inside their ears, ultimately making these earphones super comfortable to wear. So, no matter what you decide to do with these, they’ll never fall out.
This means that you can use them pretty much any activity that you can think of, including running, riding a bike and performing cool stunts, doing gymnastics, playing basketball, or even going for a boxing session at a very confident and energetic pace.
Furthermore, in case you’re worried that these True Wireless earphones won’t offer you a personal and comfortable fit, then know that you have nothing to fear, as the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones also come with a total of twelve (x2) different Ear Tips, meaning 6 pairs of Interchangeable Ear Tips that all come in different sizes (S, S+, M, M+, L, and L+).
Thanks to those, the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones will always stay perfectly still within your ear, and won’t ever move from where and how you put them.
Lastly, the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones feature an Electrical Resistance value of 16Ω and are rated with a IPX6 Water Resistance Rating, meaning that they are coated with an invisible layer that keeps the earphones protected against any unexpected rainy days, as well as sweat (during your workouts) or even the occasional water splash (if you take them to a pool party, or something like that).
Thanks to the PaMu Slide Mini’s IPX6 Water Resistance Rating, users are ensured that no rain, no water, and no sweat can seep into the earphones’ sensitive internal components, allowing you to have both your music and any potentially incoming phone calls working at all times, no matter where you are, what you’re doing, or even whatever weather you’re facing throughout your day.
AUDIO SPECS & AUDIO QUALITY
Now, speaking about the earphones’ sensitive internal components, let’s move on the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini Earphones’ audio specs. First of all, don’t let the earphones’ small size fool you, as these True Wireless earphones are actually quite powerful when it comes to their reproduced audio.
That’s because each earphone comes equipped with a powerful built-in Sound Speaker that integrates both a 6mm Sound Driver and a Composite 6 Micron Sound Diaphragm, as well as a Main Chip and a LDS (Laser Direct Structuring) Antenna, and all these components are protected behind each earphone’s high-quality Silicone Sheath.
The earphones’ Composite 6 Micron Sound Diaphragm is not only stiffer, but also lighter and stronger than cheaper earphone models, which allows it to vibrate without the levels of distortion found in those same cheap earphone while they play your audio.
As such, this ultimately allows the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini to achieve a more accurate and detailed sound quality from its internal speaker, which then allows the earphones to maintain a crystal-clear sound level; even at higher volumes. That basically means that you can get high-quality highs (the treble, which is represented by high-pitch / high-frequency sounds) , as well as crystal-clear mid sounds (mid-frequency sounds) and lows (meaning the bass / low-frequency sounds).
When it comes to the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones’ audio quality, these earphones feature outstanding audio quality, as their lows/bass never overwhelms the mids and/or the highs/treble, and the same goes for the mids and the highs, as those two sound frequencies never overwhelm any of the other sound frequencies either.
By combining the earphones’ 6mm Sound Driver with their Composite 6 Micron Sound Diaphragm, each earphone’s speaker can deliver a powerful and punchy bass that comes accompanied by crystal-clear mids and highs with no distortion whatsoever, even at higher volumes.
These earphones also feature a really extensive volume range, making them great for people who enjoy listening to their music a bit louder so that they can have a more immersive listening experience.
Furthermore, while you enjoy you’re stay at “Sound Heaven” while playing your music in the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones, these also feature a built-in Dual-Mic setup that provides users with Noise Cancelling Technology, which ultimately allows you to enjoy a very welcomed noise reduction feature which can be used whenever you find yourself in crowded and/or busy areas (city commuting).
Thanks to that, the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones can easily filter out any background noises so that you can enjoy crystal clear soundtracks as well as uninterrupted phone-calls with no background noise whatsoever.
It’s really that simple, you just tap to activate the feature and you’ll be able to fade-out all external noises when tuning into your favorite station, playing your favorite album, or picking up an incoming phone call.
INTERFACE & QUICK-TOUCH CONTROLS
Now, speaking of tapping, the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini Earphones also feature easy-to-use Quick-Touch Controls, which provides users with an easy operation method to answer any incoming calls, as well as control their music and even adjust the earphones’ volume.
Tapping once on either side allows users to Play/Pause their music as well as answer an incoming phone-call.
Instead of tapping just once, users can reject a call by tapping twice on either earphone. Not only that, but whenever you do not have an incoming phone call, tapping twice on the left side earphone allows users to activate their Voice Assistant (either Siri or Google Assistant), while tapping twice on the right side earphone allows them to skip their music to the next song.
Lastly, a long press on the left side earphone allows you to lower the earphones’ volume, while contrarily to that, a long press on the right side earphone allows you to increase the earphones’ volume.
CONNECTIVITY & COMPATIBILITY
As mentioned before, the PaMu Slide Mini are True Wireless Earphones that work based on Bluetooth 5.0. The PaMu Slide Mini Earphones’ awesome sound – meaning their powerful bass, crisp mids, and soaring highs – is there partly thanks to their built-in Qualcomm aptX QCC3020 Bluetooth Chip (Bluetooth 5.0), which is the most advanced of its kind.
This super-advanced Qualcomm QCC3020 TWS (True Wireless Stereo) Bluetooth Chip offer both a great bass at the lower ends as well as a decent mid-range, meaning that users get a very decent audio quality, which is maintained at all times by a very stable connectivity signal.
Ultimately, the earphones support a Maximum Transmission Range that can go up to 32.80 ft. (10 m).
Additionally, the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones Bluetooth Chip supports 3 different Decoding Formats, which are aptX, SBC, AAC.
The PaMu Slide Mini are compatible with any iOS and/or Android devices (Smartphones, Tablets, etc.), as well as any Windows-based computer that supports Bluetooth connectivity.
OTHER CONNECTIVITY FEATURES
The PaMu Slide Mini Earphones also feature Auto-Pairing when it comes to their Bluetooth Connectivity, which basically means that you can automatically connect and/or disconnect them with ease.
Single Earphone Use
Users can also choose to use just one earphone at the time, meaning independently, but it’s highly recommend that you choose to use the left earphone (which, mind you, is the master earphone) while using this feature, as that will ultimately give you a more stable signal.
BATTERY & BATTERY LIFE
As True Wireless earphones, each of the Padmate PaMu Slide Mini earphones comes equipped with a small built-in 85mAh rechargeable Li-Ion battery that can offer up to 10 hours of music playing time and/or talking time for your phone calls.
However, as the earphones’ Carrying & Charging case also comes equipped with a built-in 400mAh rechargeable Li-Ion battery, users can ultimately get an additional 20 hours of battery life for a total of 30 hours of playback time and/or talking time (for phone calls) on one single charge (meaning having both the earphones and their charging case fully charged).
Now, when it comes to charging the PaMu Slide Mini Earphones, placing both earphones inside their proprietary Carrying & Charging Case and connecting the case to its included USB-C Charging Cable will allow you to quickly charge the earphones. These earphones feature a very quick charging time of just 1.5 hours, so you won’t have to wait much to get them back on a full juice.
Furthermore, these earphones and their charging case support a total of two ways of recharging their batteries, which means that you have one additional way of recharging your PaMu Slide Mini.
As you would expect in 2020, instead of using their Charging Case connected to a USB-C Charging Cable, you can also use a Qi Wireless Charger to recharge both the case and the earphones simultaneously.
Lastly, as these earphones also support USB-C Fast Charging, with just 5 minutes of charging you can get 1 hour of playing time and/or talk time (for phone calls).
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
Inside their package users will find: their pair of PaMu Slide Mini Bluetooth Earbuds, the earphones’ included portable Carrying & Charging Case as well as its USB-C Charging Cable, a total of six (x6) pairs of Interchangeable Ear Tips that come in 6 different sizes, and one (x1) included Carrying Bag / Satchel.
The Padmate PaMu Slide Mini are True Wireless Earphones that feature 30 hours of battery life, Quick-Touch Controls, Voice Assistant Support, Qi Wireless Charging support, and much, much more.
These earphones are super-comfortable to wear, also include 6 different Ear Tips for a better fit, and their Charging Case even comes equipped with Magnetic Slot Mounts so that the earphones never fall out of it when the case is opened downwards (facing the floor).
