EchoBeat Review – Legit or Hype?

Published on: Feb 22, 2019

EchoBeat earbuds are Bluetooth-enabled and feature a portable charger that can provide up to 14 hours of battery life. The earbuds’ Bluetooth 4.2 technology gives them a range of up to 200 feet. This device isn’t nearly as expensive as Apple and Samsung offerings and is compatible with Apple and Android phones.

“Wired headphones are SO 1990,” the earbuds’ promo video states. “These latest-generation ear buds offer amazing quality an don’t cost a fortune to own.”

The company selling these headphones is called Megadeals Ltd. From what we can tell in the fine print included on the site, the company ships their earbuds from Guangzhou, China. Megadeals sells hundreds of different products on their main website, including portable A/C units, aroma diffusers, camera accessories and more.

In this review, we’ll take a look at how EchoBeat work, how much they cost and how they stack up against similar products available through Amazon.

How EchoBeat Earbuds Work

The first thing you’ll notice about these earbuds is that they look very similar to Apple AirPods. They are white, wireless and settle into your ears in what seems to be a pretty comfortable way.

They connect to your device via Bluetooth 4.2, a technology that’s a few years but still works with Apple, Android and other Bluetooth-enabled devices, the site says.

EchoBeat’s website says that the earbuds feature noise-canceling technology that “filters out unwanted external noise” and that the sound flowing out of the earbuds is an “exceptional HD stereo sound.”

The earbuds come with a portable charger you can take with you on the go. Your EchoBeat earbuds should last 14 hours on one charge, the site says.

Basically, these earbuds claim to give you all the features you’d need for a good audio experience that lasts nearly all day.

EchoBeat Pricing and Return Policy

The price of these earbuds is significantly lower than competing earbuds from Samsung and Apple, which we’ll talk about in a few minutes:

  • One set of EchoBeat: $59.99
  • Three sets of EchoBeat: $99.99
  • Five sets of EchoBeat: $149.99

As you can see, the value goes up the more sets of these earbuds you buy. You’ll pay around $30 per pair if you buy five instead of the $59.99 you pay for buying just one pair.

The one thing we think could make this purchase a little tenuous is that Megadeals Ltd. has a really strict return policy.

You have 30 days from the date of delivery to make a return. However, you can only do the return if the earbuds are unused, in pristine condition and in the original condition. You’ll have to send the earbuds to an address in Estonia where the company will approve or deny your request for a refund.

What’s important to note is that you have to pay the return shipping. Since you’re sending the earbuds to Europe, it will cost you around $15.00 for shipping via the United States Postal Service. The shipping address to which you send your return is Pallasti 28, 10001, Tallinn, Estonia.

To start your return, you’ll need to email support@megadeals.ltd or call (351)888-2241.

After 30 days, you will not be able to get a refund or exchange.

How EchoBeat Compares to Apple AirPods, Samsung Galaxy Buds and the Top Wireless Earbuds on Amazon

If you think about these earbuds in the context of price, then they seem to provide pretty good value compared to the wireless Bluetooth earbuds you’d get from Apple ($159) and Samsung ($129.99). However, the top-rated Bluetooth wireless earbuds on Amazon, TNSO’s wireless Bluetooth earbuds, are $37.69.

Taken purely at their price point, these earbuds would seem to be on the better end of the value spectrum. However, buying earbuds is more than just finding the cheapest pair. The following chart compares the three earbuds we just mentioned along with EchoBeat earbuds:

Up to 4 hours

Based on our observations, we believe that EchoBeat offers better value than the TINSO earbuds simply because they have a battery life that’s claimed to last more than three times as long.

The other factor here is range. Bluetooth 4.2 devices are believed to have ranges of about 200 feet, whereas Bluetooth 5.0 devices are believed to have an 800-foot range, according to Apple devotee site 9to5Mac.

This represents a huge difference, as the range on your AirPods or Galaxy buds means you could take your phone and earbuds to a track, for example, set your phone down at the start line and run laps without losing connection.

Of course, range is all relative depending on how far you move away from the device to which your earbuds are connected. If you’re never more than 10 feet from your phone, then range won’t make much of a difference.

In general, we’d say that EchoBeat offers the advantage of a longer battery life than the TNSO earbuds and a price point that’s well below what you’d get from Apple and Samsung. Also, these earbuds can work on Apple and Android phones, whereas the Apple product only works with Apple products and the Samsung earbuds only work with Android devices.

However, if you rely on name brands for your electronics, it may be worth it to you to buy from Apple or Samsung. Just keep in mind that you’ll be paying at least twice as much.

The Final Word: EchoBeat Pros and Cons

Based on all the information we presented in this review, we believe there are some pretty clear pros and cons to using these earbuds.

First, the price is somewhat reasonable when you compare it to similar off-brand wireless Bluetooth earbuds on Amazon. Second, we like how the headphones come with a convenient charging case.

The downside to the earbuds, in our opinion, is that they employ older Bluetooth technology. While this won’t affect compatibility for the time being, it doesn’t affect the earbuds’ range. Say, for example, you work in a warehouse and you want to listen to music but have to keep your phone in a locker or in your car.

Your EchoBeat earbuds may not have the range you need to be hundreds of feet from your phone, whereas the Apple and Samsung earbuds do because of their Bluetooth 5.0 technology.

Also, the return policy on these earbuds is pretty restrictive and return shipping can be expensive if you live in the United States.

If you aren’t convinced these earbuds are right for you, take a minute to look through Amazon’s top-rated wireless earbuds. There are several options that offer 5.0 technology along with an affordable price tag.
