Overall Performance: 5.0 out of 5.0 stars
Audio Brand Lypertek has rebranded the Lypertek Tevi and they are now known as the Lypertek Pureplay Z3. For these with the Tevi literally, nothing has changed apart from the name and the packaging. In this review, I will be looking into why these earbuds have other tech reviewers singing these praises.
The Lypertek PurePlay Z3 are a pair of True Wireless earbuds. The Key features of these earbuds are:
- 70-hour battery life
- Bluetooth 5.0
- IPX7 Rated
- Qualcomm Chipset
- USB-C Charging
- Available in Black or Ivory
Now first impressions you might be thinking they look very similar the Sennheiser momentum true wireless at £279 and you would be right there a number of similarities sure as the case design and even the design of the earbud. However, that is where the similarities end.
The Lypertek Pureplay Z3 are in the under £100 price mark at £99 just but do not act like some budget earbuds we have reviewed.
The case like the Sennheiser momentum is a quality design and feels solid and is also doubles as a charger for the buds and on the front of the case, it also has 4 LEDs to indicate how much charge is in the case.
The buds themselves, in my opinion, are 100 times more comfortable than the Sennheiser which I really did not get on with. The PurePlay Z3 are very comfortable in your ear. You are supplied with a selection of eartips as well as a pair of foam tips. In this review, I chose to keep the tips that come on the buds but have tested all of the buds and all add to the comfort.
The spec of these earbuds is Bluetooth 5.0 as well as aptX and AAC audio codecs meaning both android and IOS users will be able to experience a higher quality sound which I will discuss in more detail. The Lypertek PurePlay Z3 is also IPX 7 rated meaning they will be fine if somehow one fail’s out and landed in a puddle or ideal for when using in the gym meaning these who sweat a lot won’t worry about the earbuds being damaged.
One of the specs am so pleased about is the battery life you get 10 hours of use when fully charged and with the use of the charger case that offers an additional 6 full charges = A whopping 70 hours. I have used these a lot over the last few weeks and not even got close to having to recharge. You also get a quick charge function so if you drain the battery simply charge for 15 minutes and you get 2 hours of charge.
Moving on to the features of these buds have a button on each bud. The buttons are multi-functioned and you can do the following:
- Track control
- Taking calls
- Enable voice assistant
The buttons are very easy to press and do not cause any discomfort when using them. You won’t find the bud going deeper into your ear and maybe hurting the inside of your ear. Pairing the PurePlay Z3 turn on automatically once out of the case and start to pair automatically the first time. Then when you go to use again they connect automatically with nothing further you to do. You will also notice these buds use the master & slave technology meaning the first bud you pick becomes the master and also allows for you to use one earbud at a time if you wish.
Moving to the sound quality I was pleasantly surprised with the sound quality considering the price range. These buds have graphene-coated 6mm driver and this offers a dynamic sound profile that if you never told me the price I would have put the price of the Tevi closer to the Sennheiser momentum true wireless at £279.
The bass in these earbuds would please the bass fans among us they are well controlled and punchy without feeling too much. The midrange helps the vocals to sound nice as it comes out very crisp. The treble gives you definition but does not risk fatigue when listening for a long period.
Finally, the Pureplay Z3 also allows for calls to be made and I have made and received calls on this and the built-in microphone does a nice job of providing quality calls and also when I asked people I called what the sound like there feedback was I sounded very clear.
Overall, The Lypertek PurePlay Z3 surprised me with the build quality. I also liked the multi-function button on both buds and the fact either the left or right bud can be the master allowing you to use just one bud if you wish. My only real negative is that strap on the charging case it’s just not needed and makes it look cheap.
The sound quality punch above their weight unless your requirement is noise-cancelling these are a fantastic pair of buds. At £99 it gives you a real alternative to the well know brands like Sennheiser and with the PurePlay Z3 being a cheaper option it’s well worth considering.
