Amazfit PowerBuds Review: Bluetooth headsets that ‘hear’ your heart

The disappearance of the entry of jack 3.5 mm from many devices brought an increase in quality in wireless solutions like these Amazfit PowerBuds tested by EBox. But in an overcrowded market for Bluetooth headsets, it’s the small details that can make the difference.

It is in this sense that we see the Amazfit PowerBuds. Bluetooth headsets that, at the outset, would be just another satisfactory solution on the market, but which stand out for having a built-in heart rate sensor.

Advantages of Amazfit PowerBuds:

  • Reliable sound quality for the price
  • Built-in heart rate sensor
  • Battery life impresses
  • Sound customization through the app

Disadvantages of Amazfit PowerBuds:

  • Low-sounding bass
  • Call quality could be better
  • Heart rate data gets ‘stuck’ to the Amazfit App
  • App has changed its name, but there is no indication in the instructions

As soon as you take them out of the box, you immediately understand their purpose: sport. The design and color mostly black, makes them very discreet in the ear. And the red tone gives it a touch that I really liked.

I can tell you that they are comfortable in the ear, compared to others that I have tested before. On a bike ride, only after about 1h15m did they start to bother. In addition to four rubber measures to adapt to your convenience, you also have hooks.

These can be coupled easily in a magnetic way. In my experience, I never felt, with or without hooks, that the earphones were in danger of falling. But being able to attach the hooks more securely would certainly be something to think about in an upcoming model.

The design of the Amazfit PowerBuds is designed to contain sensors capable of monitoring your heart rate during exercise. However, there is a small drawback.

First, you will want to install the Amazfit app to take advantage of the exercise and personalization features of the earphones. When looking at the instruction manual, we see a QR Code that gives an error.

Amazfit PowerBuds have a built-in heart rate sensor

This is because the Amazfit app has been replaced by the Zepp app. And the less attentive user will think that the problem may be theirs. After installing the aforementioned Zepp app, I took a bike ride and the heart rate sensor seemed to work as expected.

When comparing the data of my Mi Band 5, the results were quite similar, without a large margin of error. Unfortunately these cannot be transferred anywhere. This means that if you are not within the Amazfit ecosystem, it is not the ideal solution to not be able to transfer data to other apps (unless it is manually).

Xiaomi Amazfit PowerBudsEven with a sporty side, the most important thing in a headset is sound quality. This does not disappoint for its price, but do not expect any serious bass.

The voices are satisfactorily audible, and there is competent clarity in the instruments. It is the treble and midrange that stand out in this product, with less pronounced lows.

It should be noted that through the app you can access the equalizer, and move the sound to something that is more to your liking. It is also in the app that you can configure the gestures that allow you to pause the song, move to the previous or next track, call the virtual assistant or activate the ambient sound mode. Still, it is worth mentioning that they are not always responsive to the first attempt.

Amazfit PowerBuds autonomy impresses positively

In these headsets, Amazfit promises an excellent autonomy of eight hours in each headset and up to 24 hours with the box. And I can tell you that during my use it was very close to these numbers. Because, with rare exceptions, who listens to eight hours of music in a row?

It is worth mentioning that they are IP55 certified. This gives it resistance against rain, dust or sweat. And it will be with the latter that you will not have to worry during more intensive training … and sweating.

Amazfit PowerBuds are earphones to consider for sports

The use in both Android and iOS was made without problems, from the quick connection to the hearing with quality and without noticeable drag in the video playback. However, the instruction manual to cover the new app should be updated.

For sports-enabled Bluetooth headsets, they deliver balanced sound for their price of € 89.99 on Mi Store UK. It is not difficult to advise them on this value, but you should take into account whether the pros and cons I have verified are, or not, an obstacle to your use.
