Lypertek has announced its latest real wireless headphones, and with an incredible 80-hour battery life, they can be one of the longest-lasting wireless headphones on the planet.
The Lypertek PurePlay Z7 follows in the footsteps of the PurePlay Z3 (formerly known as the Lypertek Tevi), to which we awarded five full stars for our review. According to the company, the new headphones offer an updated design, enhanced features and hybrid controller technology.
However, unlike its predecessors, the Lypertek PurePlay Z7 will not come out cheap when it launches in early June. They’ll get you back $ 199 / £ 199 (about AU $ 250), which is significantly more expensive than the PurePlay Z3, which cost $ 79.99 / GBP 99.99 (about AU $ 100).
So what do you get for your money? Aside from this 80-hour battery life (i.e. 10 from the boots themselves and 70 more from the charging box), Lypertek has supplied the headphones with the new Qualcomm QC3040 chipset, which enables Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and AAC and aptX Adaptive compatibility.
They are the first Lypertek headphones to feature a triple hybrid controller, with two balanced armature controllers and a titanium-coated controller on each housing.
According to Lypertek, this controller layout provides the dynamic range needed to deliver “powerful, well-controlled bass, [a] mid-range that provides rich clarity to the voice and clear, expansive maxima. ”If they sound like the PurePlay Z3, and we’d expect them to sound better to the specifications, you can expect a well-balanced audiophile presentation.
The headset will also support the new PureControl app, which allows you to adjust the equalizer settings and switch to various presets. You can also use the app to turn on ambient sound mode, customize multi-purpose control buttons, update firmware, and use the “Find my headset” feature.
It’s a shame that no active noise cancellation is offered: these buds are as expensive as the Apple AirPods Pro, although they do offer much longer battery life. If the audio performance lives up to Lypertek’s claims, this high price can be justified, and the company offers a budget alternative with the Lypertek SoundFree S20, which we have crowned the best budget wireless headphones of 2021.
