Crazybaby Air 1S review: Good sound in a questionable design

TwitterFacebook
Crazybaby Air 1S
$159
The Good

Good sound • with powerful bass • Lightweight and comfortable

The Bad

Large • not-so-portable carrying case • Lousy battery life • Bluetooth pairing process can be stressful

The Bottom Line

While the Crazybaby Air 1S are truly wireless earbuds, a bulky carrying case with only 12-hours of battery life makes it a hard sell with a bass-heavy mix and a problematic pairing process.

Walmart will give you nearly $100 off an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus through Aug. 17

Advantages of being Team iPhone: Apple street cred and blue iMessages. What else is there?

Disadvantages of being Team iPhone: Well, they tend to shit out after about two years of use (conveniently near the time a new iPhone is about to be released). If you’re really unlucky, yours croaked way early — and now you’re stuck with a illegible cracked screen or rigged charging port until your contract is up.

Or not: Until the end of day on August 17, Walmart wants to give you the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus for $95 off along with $45 of free Airtime with Straight Talk. You’re welcome.
