Lypertek PurePlay Z3 2.0: Affordable Earbuds with a Well-Balanced Sound and Great Features

When Lypertek launched the Tevi back in 2019, they immediately turned into one of our favorite affordable real cordless earbuds.

A year later on they had a change of name (PurePlay Z3), and 2021 brings the newest modification and – possibly – the best variation of these earbuds yet. The PurePlay Z3 2.0 appearance is the same but the changes come through a brand-new application, high-performance sound setting, improved Bluetooth specifications, and a brand-new Ambient setting.

The inexpensive real cordless market has become much more affordable since the launch of the initial Lypertek earbuds, with the similarity Google, Panasonic, and Sennheiser getting on the inexpensive real cordless bandwagon. Are these features enough to maintain these Lypertek buds in the top brace of inexpensive real cordless? Let’s have another pay attention to the PurePlay Z3 2.0.


Better finish

Great, comfy in shape

Touch switches for playback, quantity, and Listen to Through setting

The PurePlay Z3 2.0 have the same form and dimension as the initial Tevi, the just distinction being the finish is better compared to the original’s glossy plastic shine.

There is no change to the control scheme either, with physical switches in the order of business. The benefit is that you could rely on receptive presses, but if you are someone who’s cautious about how earbuds ‘feel’, nudging the PurePlay Z3 2.0 further in will not do you any favors.

Available in white or black, the Z3 2.0 offer the same reassuringly secure and comfy shape as before, obstructing a strong quantity of external sound so the sound does not need to contend (as a lot) with the globe around you. If you elegant using them as a fitness center option, they’re a strong set for that, too.

The choice of earbuds consists of 3 silicone tips (S, M, L) and a Flexifit foam suggestion (M). The billing situation is also the same well-finished device as before, covered in a distinctive dark or light grey fabric.

Overall, the PurePlay Z3 2.0 are similar, and there is a little complaint about that from me.


The new application brings customization to the table

Charitable battery life

Listen to Through setting dissatisfies

Despite sound termination ending up being more common at this price, Lypertek hasn’t already decreased that path. Rather, they’ve presented the same Listen to Through technology that was featured on the SoundFree S20, but the outcomes are decidedly warm.

The issue is the PurePlay Z3 2.0’s microphones raise the sound flooring. I can listen to the faucets of my keyboard better as I write this review, but there is more sound – which beats the point. Using them outside and in locations such as grocery stores, the increase in understanding is slim at best.

The strange hum that provided itself with the SoundFree S20 is still present, particularly when songs are paused or vehicles go by. I’ve not convinced Listen to Through/Ambient setting is a great suit for less expensive cordless earbuds, and this does not do anything to dispel that thought.

The new application (Android/iOS) focuses on customization. There is the equalizer with custom setups and several presets (Treble-, Bass+. Dancing, and more) if you do not such as the initial ‘Flat’ setting.

Manages can be personalized, but just for double- and triple-clicks and just quantity and track-skipping can be modified. Play/pause remains a solitary click, while engaging Listen to Through is feasible both through the application or by holding back for 2 secs until you listen to a double-bleep.

The just way to access the LDX Sound setting, which improves the sound quality, is through the application. You can’t have the LDX Sound setting and the Equalizer being used at the same time – it is either one or the various other.

The application has a Find My earbud feature, while ‘Settings’ is just interested in firmware updates, which should boost these headphones’ durability if they ever catch a problem.

Upgrading the firmware is a strange process of connecting the earbuds, opening up the application, and detaching from the device, before reconnecting the earbuds, going back to the application, and striking ‘Update’. Apart from that, it is pretty simple to use – and what more do you need compared to that?

Battery numbers are exactly as before: 10 hrs in each earbud and 80 in total. A 15-minute top-up benefits an extra 2 hrs. What’s new is cordless billing, if you have actually a billing plate (Lypertek offers one for $29.99).

Bluetooth support is increased to Bluetooth 5.2 with SBC, AAC, and aptX codec support (the last best of the triad). Qualcomm’s newest chipset (QCC3040) is sustained for improved power effectiveness and I imagine that assists with the new LDX Sound and Listen to Through settings.

Or else, they suit the initial with their simultaneous transmission (sound is sent out to both earbuds at the same time), Qualcomm’s cVc 8.0 Microphone Sound Cancelling technology for more clear call quality, and IPX7 water-resistant score (the situation isn’t water resistant).

Sound quality

LDX Sound improves sound throughout the board

EQ setups permit for enhanced customization

The PurePlay Z3 2.0 do not birth any changes in regards to the 6mm graphene drivers or adjusting. In their ‘original’ setting, they sound similar to the previous models. The real game-changer is the presence of the LDX Sound setting.

Lypertek says the new set offers a soundstage with included deepness, enhanced meaning, and more space, which nicely summarize the changes this setting brings. It is the sound equivalent of a rising trend increasing all ships. Everything obtains increases with it involved.

Tools that lingered behind the scenes of tracks are brought ahead and specified with greater clearness, splitting up and power, which makes for a more engaging sound compared to the initial setting, which sounds more subdued comparative.

The soundstage is widened and the effect that it has is more room for tools, as well as more room for vocals to take a breath in Lupe Fiasco’s The Cool or Jill Scott’s Gold, with lyrics explained more efficiently and avoiding sibilant tones. Vocals lack a feeling of heat for certain, but the increase in meaning simply offsets it.

Bass is improved with the LDX setting on, larger compared to before but still tight and punchy in summary. Treble information, which I nit-picked about with the initial earbuds, is dealt with better here with more information and clearness, while the mid-range is crisply delivered with a great deal more clearness and information on offer compared to there was formerly.

Consequently of tools and vocals being explained in a more vivid manner, there is an extra action in Lypertek’s sense of dynamism both at a low level and in a wider sense, with highs and lows more brushing up and strung along with much more self-confidence. Songs sound more all-natural and more clear – overall, there is more integrity on display.

In tracks such as ‘Ship o hoj, Mandalorians’ from The Mandalorian collection 2, there is more power to the guitar riffs and to the shifts in tempo, but the Z3 2.0 do not become careless in regards to timing or information. If anything, because of the greater space paid for to tracks with the LDX setting, it is a zippier, more vibrant, and entertaining efficiency.

The seven-band EQ setups in the application permit for the sound to be tuned further, and they end up being effective when utilized with certain song genres. The just real issue is among failing to remember it is involved and moving on to another thing, which is the factor I prefer the LDX setting – it is more of a cure-all for each track you pay attention to.

The initial Lyperteks were great, but the new LDX Sound setting re-confirms that the Z3 2.0 are among the best-sounding cordless earbuds at this price. Despite the increase in competitors at this price, Lypertek is placing its elbow joints out and has delivered another excellent real cordless.
