|Infinix XE-02 Official Shot|
As a software developer, earphones play an integral role in my job. It gives me enough entertainment to push past the requirements and deadlines. That's why I've been looking for a great pair of earphones. Of course, they have to be affordable. I just can't justify spending IDR 1,000,000 on a product of such category.
You know I've reviewed Infinix Zero 4 Plus before and their included earphones are pretty good by my standards. That's what pushed me to try out another product of theirs: Infinix XE-02 Noise-Cancelling Earphones. Costing only IDR 299,000 and offering battery-powered noise cancellation feature, do these earbuds deserve a place in your ear?
Let's find out.

Sound, Comfort, and Noise CancellationThanks to the isolated bud design, the XE-02 is already as noise-cancelling as it is. It is quite loud and the bass is there. Unfortunately, I'm not an expert in audio, but I can say that the sound quality is good and balanced enough for me for this price range. Again, at least you can feel the bass.
|The buds' design is already noise-cancelling by nature.|
|The buds are really comfortable to wear and the fin helps them stay in place.|
At first I thought it just boosted the volume, effectively cancelling all noise outside, because that's what initially happened. But after pausing my music for a bit and leaving the noise-cancellation on, I indeed feel my surroundings are much quieter that it's scary. That, I felt when I was in an open office, surrounded by chattering people. I guess XE-02 indeed lives up to Infinix' claims.
As previously written, the feature is powered by a small battery which you can recharge using your standard micro USB cable which, unfortunately, is not included. I haven't rated the battery life but Infinix promises 8 hours of music with a full charge.
