Saturday, December 18th, 2021

tech4xmas: If you’re looking for an affordable pair of earbuds with good sound quality that’s synonymous with Sony, the no-frills WF-C500 true wireless earbuds will make a good Christmas gift.

The Sony WF-C500 earbuds offers good audio quality at an affordable price.

The WF-C500 offers good value-for-money in terms of sound quality but at the expense of features that are found in other earbuds of similar price range or higher.

At an affordable S$139, the WF-C500 has had to forego frills like noise cancellation, transparency mode, wireless charging and automatic pausing when you remove one or both earbuds.

The earbuds are IPX4 rated so they’re splash resistant.

Freshly unboxed Sony WF-C500 True Wireless Earbuds.

Battery life is reasonable at 10 hours with full charge, plus an additional 10 hours from the pill-shaped charging case.

This is plenty long for me although it’s common for charging cases to provide twice the full charge of their earbuds.

I like that a quick charge of 10 minutes gave me a full hour of mileage.

The 2m long cable provides added ease to move around while charging and especially if there are only limited wall sockets in the room.

The magnetic attachment is strong and clips onto the phone right away, no worries about misalignment or loose contacts etc.

I was able to continue using the phone (eg. scrolling, pinching the screen and talking on the phone) without worrying about the charger pad coming loose or misaligned if I accidentally jostle it or the phone vibrates on an incoming call.

Hassle-free charging.

tech4xmas Review: PRISM+ Q65 Quantum Edition Pro Android TV

Tuesday, December 7th, 2021

tech4xmas 2021: The Q Series Quantum Edition (QE) Pro series are the flagship Android TVs by Singapore brand PRISM+. I tried the Q65-QE Pro and found that it indeed offered excellent value-for-money. Quality that’s almost as good as the flagship of established brands – but at a fraction of the price.

The PRISM+ Q65-QE Pro standing pretty in front of my Samsung 55-inch TV. The image quality isn’t far behind but the price is like half. Super value-for-money.

Appearance-wise, the Q65-QE Pro looks really smart with almost no bezel on three edges – left, right and top sides.

Along the bottom of the TV is a 1-cm bezel as well as the brand logo and LED status light on a thin extension below the centre of that bezel.

Excluding the stand, the panel measures 1447 x 827 x 85 mm with a weight of 19.9kg

Including the stand which is very stable, the TV measures 1447 x 904 x 290 mm, with a weight of 20.15kg.

The TV can also be mounted on the wall with a mounting measuring 400 x 200mm.

Picture quality-wise, Dolby Vision’s HDR technology provides good natural colours, with better tone definition, contrast management and greater detail.

The IPS panel accords a wide viewing angle (178 degrees), while the Quantum Color backlit technology of the series further enhances overall brightness and contrast, as well as greater colour volume and accuracy than similarly priced TVs.

Compared to its predecessors (Q-series), the Q65-QE definitely offers a wider colour gamut and higher dynamic range.

In fact, I find the image quality quite almost as good as my own Samsung 55” TV, which is priced roughly twice the Q65-QE Pro.

Audio wise, I find the 2 x 10W output adequate – I don’t think an external soundbar is necessary, except perhaps to boost the bass.
