The BH-501 options an aluminum physique with a brushed steel design and a 50cm string that connects the 2 buds. You’ll be able to have it in any shade so long as it is black. It weighs 15g, and helps quantity adjustment in addition to name answering and rejection from the in-line distant.
The earbuds are IP55 rated for water and mud resistance, that means they’re mud protected and might stand up to water being projected by a nozzle from any path. In plain phrases, going out with them within the rain ought to pose no downside. The BH-501 goes to be priced at CNY 299 in China, which proper now interprets into $46.
