Check Out iLive Truly Wire-Free Earbuds post thumbnail image

REVIEWS – I have been looking for comfortable wireless headphones for some time. I have very small ear canals. Headphones with the best specifications in the world will not work for me if my ears begin to ache after a few minutes. I also wanted completely wireless headphones, so that a cable does not hang on the back of my neck. Let’s see if the really wireless iLive headphones worked for me.

What’s this?

The truly wireless iLive headphones are exactly what they say to be. They consist of two separate earbuds that have several ways to stay in the ears without a wire in sight. You use Bluetooth 5.0 to communicate between the buds and any device you’re streaming from.

What’s in the box ?

From left to right, starting in the upper left corner, contained the field:

  • Two pairs of in-ear mounts. One size is larger than the other for ears of different sizes.
  • Two pairs of additional tips. These two pairs give a total of three different sizes of tips for the buds.
  • The powered cover. Inside the cover there is an additional pair of black ear hooks, which, like the yellow ones, are attached to the buds under the cover.
  • Left and right side earbuds with middle earplugs and yellow ear hooks installed.
  • A USB powered cable that charges the cover.
  • Manual
  • Card prompts you to make a review of the product.

Hardware Specifications

  • TWS-True Wireless Stereo System
  • Supports Bluetooth v5.0
  • Waterproof to IPX7
  • Built-in Microphone
  • Conductor: 6mm
  • Frequency Response: 20Hz-20kHz
  • Nominal Impedance: 16 OHMS


The configuration of the headphones was really simple. The first thing I did was swap the middle ear tip for the smaller one. Combined with the yellow hook on the ear, these are the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever used. I usually start to get pain in my ears within an hour of putting on the headphones, but I never had it with these, even if I wore them for more than two hours at a time. I planned to swap the hooks above the ear with the in-ear hooks, but these above the ear are so soft and compliant, I forgot they were there. I dropped them because I felt that they would be less likely to fall while exercising and gardening.

Here is a picture of the inside of the cover. Note the on / off switch. This is something I’ve never seen in other cover of headphone powered. Most cover light up and start powered automatically when you turn on the headphones. This matter will not do. You need to turn on the device. I think it could help with the possible degradation of the battery. I only want to charge them when I feel their performance is low enough to warrant powered. I do not like that the battery is constantly turned off, although I wore the buds only for 30 minutes.

The following picture shows the live housing and the powered buds. You can see the Blue light flashing when it is powered. The buds, as you can see, are displayed in red, which indicates that they are loaded. When powered is complete, the light of the headphone will turn blue. The power indicator also lights up blue when powered is complete.

The matter is easily charged by inserting the USB cable into the matter and the other into a USB port on your PC or into an adapter for powered on the wall.

When removing the headphones from the matter, you need to turn on each headphone separately by clicking on the function button located in the center of each earphone. You must then press and hold the function key on both until they start flashing blue and red. At this point, each listener will connect to the other. The left handset starts flashing blue and red and the right handset just flashes blue. I only had to do this when I first used the headphones. They automatically connected each time afterwards.


The headphones worked very well. To answer a call, I just had to press the function key of one or another key. To reject a call, I pressed the function key twice. When I was done with them, I turned them off automatically. Removing them from the cover automatically turned them on, linked them together and linked them to my phone.

The audio quality was excellent for me. I tend to listen mainly to audiobooks. Since these fit my ears so well, I could reduce the volume and always hear the book clearly. We are on a trajectory and often, when planes are overhead, it is impossible to hear a book. With these buds, I could clearly hear the book all the time. I was testing a call, and people on the other end had no idea I wasn’t talking directly on my phone.

Final considerations

If you’re looking for really comfortable wireless headphones that seem to work, I highly recommend them. I know others out there with whom you can answer a call with your voice, but if they hurt your ears, you won’t use them anyway.
