AUKEY LATITUDE-PORTABLE OPTION WITH PASSIVE ISOLATION

The Aukey Latitude are above average mixed in-ear applications. They are great for sports and surprisingly have excellent insulation performance for commuting and office use. These versatile budget headphones provide decent sound and should suit most users. Unfortunately, the in-ear fit is not for everyone, and it’s not the best headset we’ve tested yet, but the price makes up for it. On the other hand, they also have magnetic earphones that are suitable for cable management and have a large radio range that supports a lower latency codec suitable for watching video content.

Design

The Aukey Latitude are neatly built wireless in-ears, especially for their low price. They have a typical in-ear design that is not comfortable for everyone, but there are a few tips to help you find the best fit. They have a decent regulatory scheme and also have a feature to toggle some of the EQ presets. Like most in-ears, they are breathable and very portable, which is suitable for sports, and their stability fins provide stability during physical activity. Athletes also like their IPX4 rating (sweat and water repellent), but some may be affected by their thin cables.

Sound

The Aukey Latitude are discreetly closed ears. They have a deep, consistent and powerful bass, a balanced middle and a good treble range. However, their bass is a bit muddy and the low midrange is a bit overemphasized, so that vocals and lead instruments seem a bit thick and unclear. In addition, certain S and T sounds may feel pervasive and pungent to some users. Overall, they are quite versatile headphones, especially for bass-heavy genres, but may not be ideal for vocal-centered music. They also have 3 EQ modes (standard / vocals, bass, treble). We measured the headphone in standard / vocal mode because it was the shallowest.

Isolation

The Aukey Latitude provide excellent insulation performance. For in-ears without ANC function, they block many low frequencies, making them a good choice for commuting, and they also reduce ambient noise, which is good for the office. They’re pretty good in noisy environments, even if they have no ANC function. They barely leak, so you can hear at high volumes without disturbing the people around you.

Microphone

The inline microphone is average. In quiet environments, the voice recorded or transmitted with this microphone sounds relatively thin, but is relatively easy to understand. However, a little detail and brightness may be missing. In noisy environments, the microphone can easily separate speech from ambient noise in moderately loud places, such as a busy street. In noisy conditions like a subway station, however, it will be difficult.

Active Features

The Aukey Latitude has a decent battery life that most users will find long enough to listen to music on a lazy day, but they still need to be charged daily. Unfortunately, they do not have an app to enhance your listening experience or energy-saving mode to extend battery life.

Connectivity

The Aukey Latitude is a Bluetooth headset that can not be used passively. You can connect to two devices at the same time, which is convenient, and they also have excellent wireless range. Unfortunately, as with most Bluetooth headphones, they have too much latency to watch video content or games, but they offer better results than most Bluetooth headphones we’ve tested so far. They also have a surprisingly low latency with the aptX codec, even though the box and technical data sheets do not officially announce aptX-LL compatibility.

Critical Listening

Decent for critical listening. In-Ears are not ideal for critical listening, but these headphones provide good audio, but they do not sound as open-mouthed and can not be compared to over-ear headphones. On the top, the frequency response is fairly uniform, but sounds a bit mushy and confusing.

Commute/Travel

Good for commuting. They provide excellent isolation performance, especially for in-ears without ANC features. They passively block a large number of low frequencies to reduce engine noise and block ambient noise. They are very good for the trouser pocket and are quite comfortable for short distances like bus trips, but not ideal for long flights.

Sports/Fitness

Great for sports. These headphones are very portable and their wireless design is great for the sport because you do not have to worry about getting a cable in the way or getting stuck. In addition, the numerous stability fins and tips help you find the most comfortable and stable fit for your physical activity, and their IPX4 rating makes them a little more sweat-resistant.
