Back when wireless audio technology was still in its infancy, consumers had limited choices. They had to deal with a hefty pair of headphones and a similarly bulky transmitter. The invention of Bluetooth technology and its improvements resulted in the creation of compact designs that fit inside your pocket. Further upgrades led to the creation of true-wireless earbuds. These types are now the standard models that you get from most brands. The Optoma NuForce BE Free5 claims to have a leg up when it comes to audio quality, so let’s check it out.

These days, other than small gimmicks and nuances, there’s hardly any difference between wireless earphones offered by companies. Sure, there are popular audio brands that might be good options, but you can expect to pay a premium price thanks to the label.

That’s where Optoma comes in—to offer consumers like us a stylish and properly-tuned set of wireless earphones. According to the company, the earbuds are armed with 5.6mm graphene-membrane drivers to produce top-notch audio. Moreover, they supposedly gathered feedback from over a thousand third-party testers to craft to properly develop an ergonomic fit.

The Optoma NuForce BE Free5 is built to withstand moisture from water, sweat, and the occasional downpour. A single charge reportedly delivers up to four hours of listening time, while 15 minutes docked inside the portable charging case grants an hour of usage. At $99, this looks like an optimum alternative to more popular brands in the market.
