Padmate PaMu Slide Mini is not only my debut as a reviewer, but also the first long contact with this type of equipment. In this case, however, I consider it a plus – we are dealing here with a product addressed to a mass recipient rather than a real gadget maker. My experience should primarily help people who are thinking about abandoning the cable, but do not necessarily want to invest in top-shelf positions.
The equipment came to me a little round the road, which should explain the condition of the box visible in the photo. The most important thing, however, is what was inside. The PaMu Slide Mini set, apart from headphones, also has a case that acts as a charging station, a cable, an additional cover and a set of silicone inserts to replace.
As for the headphones themselves , we are dealing here with a fairly simple, but at the same time not as delicate design as in the case of AirPods . It may be a matter of blackness, but at first glance they seem a bit archaic to me. They even bring to mind models of in-ear headphones that were popular a dozen or so years ago. The manufacturer offers 3 more color versions of the PaMu Mini (white, pink and green), which in my opinion look slightly better. However, there is of course a matter of individual preferences.
As for the quality of the headphones, I have no complaints. First of all, it is worth mentioning that they fit well in the ear and do not cause discomfort even after several hours of use.
The biggest surprise when it comes to PaMu Slide Mini is the sound quality. I really didn’t expect this level of cost for $ 80. And especially, headphones without a cable. The sound is clear and clear, although slightly more sensitive music lovers may complain about the lack of adequate bass. Headphones are perfect even in loud and crowded rooms, from open space, through public transport, to gyms. They definitely outweigh even the standard Apple headphones in this respect.
And it is phenomenal working time on one charge. I have been using headphones for 1.5 weeks every day, an average of 2 to 6 hours. They were only charged three times during this time. Only once did it completely discharge (after about 20 minutes the headphones were ready for use). The case itself has not been charged by me yet, and at the time of writing this post the battery level is still 30%.
My adventure with PaMu Slide Mini is still going on. For now, however, with a clear conscience I can recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable alternative to AirPods or other wireless headphones. For relatively little money, we get quite solid equipment that works great in everyday conditions.
