Out of the box, the first thing that we noticed about the Cygnett Freeplay Wireless Earphones was the tiny size with a weight of just 77 grams that makes them ultra-lightweight. They also feel quite solid, sturdy and comfortably fit in your ear thanks to the silicone tip with earpiece sizes ranging from small to medium and large. Setting up the Freeplay is an easy process and once you have turned the earphones on, you simply enter your Bluetooth area on your phone and then search for the product and select pair. The earphones will also glow once powered.

Once we setup the Cygnett Freeplay Wireless Earphones, we were ready to listen to music, however first we tested the range. Although Cygnett state 10 metres, we did manage to push this further to around 15 metres with the occasional loss of audio quality. In terms of audio and given the size, the Freeplay produced clear audio and is quite good for its size. Lows and high sounded nice and there was even a touch of bass. The microphone quality was decent and no one had any issues with hearing us via our smartphone.
Navigating the Cygnett Freeplay Wireless Earphones does take a little bit of control to work out the button combinations, however it is a system that for the most part, works well such as changing tracks, adjusting volume or taking calls. As mentioned, the earphones will last up to 3 hours, depending on usage and the product has a generous standby time of 100 hours.
If you’re looking for an affordably priced wireless solution for your smartphone, the Cygnett Freeplay Wireless Earphones are an all-round good quality unit. Audio was clear, setup is very easy and the 3-hour battery life works well. I love the inclusion of a charging case which allows you to charge the earphones twice that in essence, gives it another 6 hours. It also helps in ensuring that the Freeplay doesn’t go flat because once you have finished at the gym or wherever you’ve been, you simply put them back in the case to charge.
