Sponsored by AUKEY
In case you aren’t familiar, AUKEY is a very popular cell phone accessory brand with a wide product range. AUKEY sells things like power banks, chargers, and headphones through convenient sales channels like Amazon. Of course, AUKEY was also present at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
During CES 2019, we took the opportunity to check out some of AUKEY’s latest products.
Key Series Earbuds
AUKEY recently added two different models to their Key Series lineup: the EP-B60 and EP-B80. What’s great about the Key Series in particular is how much AUKEY has embedded premium features into affordable price points. You’ll find things like Bluetooth 5 support, USB-C charging, voice assistant support, and IPX-6 water resistance in the Key Series lineup.
The EP-B80 model is quite impressive in that it offers a hybrid driver design for higher fidelity sound. It also supports the aptX Low Latency codec for more balanced audio.
The EP-B60, too, is nice with its magnetic earbuds. When you put the EP-B60 earbuds are put together, the headset automatically powers off to conserve energy. When you’re ready to listen again, you can just separate the earbuds and the unit will power back on.
There’s a perfect stylistic match for everyone, too; each model of earbuds is available in red, blue, gray, and black. A simple but functional matching carrying pouch is also included in the box for when you’re on to go.
Each model of Key Series earbuds includes built-in controls so you can do things like pause the music or change the volume. There are also microphones integrated into each unit which are great when on a phone call.
AUKEY is currently in the process of updating their charger lineup to include their new GaNFast™ power supply technology. Basically, this technology allows AUKEY’s chargers to be far more energy efficient. The best part? It simultaneously allows them to make significantly more compact chargers.
They’ve already released the dual-port PA-U50 charger with this technology, but announced that two new chargers would be coming soon. Those new models are the PA-Y19 and PA-Y21. Both new models charge over USB Type-C, so you won’t have to worry about dealing with the aging USB Type-A port.
In addition to headphones and chargers, AUKEY is also working on new wireless chargers and power banks. Considering the consistently high-quality products they’ve released in the past, we’re looking forward to AUKEY’s future releases.
