Design, workmanship and delivery
The HAVIT i95 are very compact with dimensions of 22 x 15,5 x 13,8mm. With a weight of only 4 grams per headphone, they are also quite light. The charging case, which comes with the dimensions 68,5 x 32,5 x 44,1mm, weighs only 39 grams. The case and the headphones have a total weight of 47 grams.
The design of the headphones is kept quite simple and dispenses with striking elements like a long shaft on the Xiaomi AirDots Pro or the Apple AirPods.
The workmanship of the headset was well done according to the price. At a price of € 25, scratch-resistant hard plastic can also be expected, which was installed here. Nevertheless, the general processing looks solid and there is no rattling or crunching. The headphones themselves are also made of hard plastic, with the various ear pads made of soft plastic.
The touch surface of the headphones feels valuable, can be scanned easily and found quickly.
The scope of delivery includes the charging case, a micro USB cable, the headphones, 3 pairs of ear pads (S / M / L) and operating instructions.
Setting up the headphones was no problem under the iOS and Android operating systems and is intuitive. When the charging case is opened, the two headphones start to flash alternately and are ready to pair. The HAVIT i95 can then be easily connected via the Bluetooth of the mobile device. If these are coupled, they can be removed and placed in the ears. A short tone sounds, which makes it clear that the headphones are actually connected.
Once the Havit i95 is connected, they remember the last connected device. If you open the charging cradle, the headphones search for the last connections and establish them automatically. However, this did not always work and I then had to establish the connection manually in the Bluetooth menu.
For charging, the two headphones are simply put back in the charging case. If the HAVIT i95 are being charged, they flash orange. The charging case itself has an LED on the back next to the micro USB port, which lights up as soon as the case is loaded. If this is off, the charging case of the HAVIT i95 is fully charged and can be removed from the power.
Depths, mid and highs
Each individual headphone has a 6 mm driver built into it. The headphones are fully convincing in terms of sound. The lows are balanced and aren't too intrusive. In addition, the depths are clearly noticeable, especially with bass-heavy songs, and really make you want more.
The mids are also very balanced and come through well. The heights do not seem too plastic or exaggerated. Even when listening to louder music, the highs still come through cleanly without distorting.
ANC (Active Noise Canceling) is unfortunately to be found in vain with the HAVIT I95, but this is also tolerable in view of the price. The headphones themselves shield well anyway and let little noise into the inside of the ear.
Operation and headset
Both headphones have touch controls, which can be used to control the music or the respective voice assistant.
The music can be stopped or continued. Calls can also be answered and ended. The volume cannot be controlled via the headphones. Even individualizing the commands cannot be changed via the setting, which is a real shame.
Another disadvantage is that the touch surface often accepts commands when the headphones are readjusted, which shouldn't actually be executed. So the music was often paused or a call ended without me wanting it.
The battery indicator can be easily read from the connected end device. The iOS status of the HAVIT I95 can be found under the playback option in the control center.
The voice quality when using the HAVIT I95 is convincing. There are no background noises or noise in the person opposite. In addition, the sound of videos or films is reproduced synchronously, so that films can be viewed and enjoyed on the end device without any problems.
The headphones themselves have a very comfortable fit, which is also reinforced by their low weight. Due to the different sized ear pads, the headphones are very adaptable.
The HAVIT I95 always sat securely in the ear canal during sporting activities such as yoga, cycling, walking or weight training. However, the headphones slip out during other sports such as jogging or cross-trainer and had to be readjusted. You can help with memory foams, which can be attached to the headphones.
The batteries of the two headphones, which are 30 mAh in size, should last about 3 hours at medium volume. I can also confirm this after my long-term test. At a quieter or higher volume, the battery life should vary up to 30 minutes.
During the test, the headphones discharged equally quickly, so that no differences could arise when recharging. The case's 500 mAh battery is sufficient to fully recharge the headphones 8-10 times.
The charging time to charge the headphones from 0% to 100% is approximately 2 hours.
The battery level of the charging case can be read from the LED next to the micro USB. If this no longer lights up, the case is fully charged and can be removed from the power. The rechargeable battery of the headphones themselves can be read on the mobile device.
