It’s not often an event involves an escape room, but a little while ago, I was invited to just that for the launch of VerveLife from Motorola! OK, it wasn’t quite an escape room, more like being locked in a tent and given clues as to the whereabouts of the key to the padlock. Whatever you want to call it, myself and a bunch of bloggers and journalists had a great time working through the clues and breaking the code to escape. At the centre of these clues were the products themselves, forcing us to get hands on with each product and learn how they worked.
First up we had the VerveOnes. Undoubtedly the most discreet earphones I’ve ever come across, these simply pop in your ear and connect to your device via bluetooth. They come in a cute little holder that carries enough charge for 12 hours of music. You can even make and receive calls (and snapchat of course) with these as they contain a microphone, although if you’ve got hair that covers your ears, it looks even more like you’re talking to yourself than normal!!
Easy to chuck in your bag, I’ve been carrying these around for weeks now. No knotted wires, no getting tangled with your earphone wire, these are super convenient with great sound quality. I recommend! If you opt for VerveOnes+, you get the addition of water and sweat protection as well.
I’ve been doubly lucky, and have had the VerveLoop+ to try in recent weeks too. Also working with bluetooth connectivity, these have just one wire that loops around your neck and controls on one side for volume and track skipping etc.
I’m seriously impressed with the battery life on these, I’ve hardly charged them at all! The sound quality is also great, as is the built-in microphone. Personally, I prefer having the loop around my neck, so if I need to take them off to order a coffee etc. I don’t have to worry about putting them down and losing them, which knowing me, I will one day with my VerveOnes+.
Also available is VerveRider+, similar to the Loop, but with a magnetic collar to keep the earbuds in place if you remove them. Great for cycling or running or generally being on the move.
VerveLife isn’t just about earphones however, next in the pipeline is VerveCam+, an action camera that you can lifestream to youtube with! I’m going to be seriously tempted to add that to my VerveLife collection when it’s released. Link it with your smartphone to see through the 138 degree viewfinder and take it swimming with the 25m depth waterproof housing which comes included. Compact and light, this will be the next big thing in the action cam market.
VerveLife gifted me the VerveOnes+ and VerveLoop+ in return for this post. All words my own, please see Disclaimer for more information.
