Meizu just launched a pair of Premium wireless earphones in China with neckband. Starting at CNY 1,299 ($195), the Meizu UR Live Special Edition are among the most expensive products in this form factors.
The earphones are marketed as compact without sacrificing audio quality. In fact, they have two customized subwoofers that take care of the low-frequency sounds along with a dual-channel independent conductive structure for accurate-sounding low-frequency and high-frequency sounds.
When it comes to design, the headphones promise a natural fit thanks to the thousands of ear molds that Meizu has collected. There's an oxygen-free copper wire connecting the two earphones while the connectors and panels are made of carbon, gold and silver foil.
Unfortunately, though, the specs given on the official landing page are all about sound quality and nothing about battery life. The frequency response range is between 20Hz and 40kHz, the impedance is 18Q and the sensitivity is 97dB@1kHz.
