Eppfun Cute Meet 250 Review True Wireless Earbuds



The predecessor to the Eppfun Cute Meet 300 - the Cute Meet 250 is a smaller and lightweight version and look very much like the Meet 300. In fact, you cannot actually tell them apart side by side. They both have a pod style design with a thin wide stem and a large oval tip with a metal mesh guard. The sound quality is similar too with very good midrange and treble but lacking bass response. 

The Eppfun Cute Meet 250 charging case has a wide square shape body made of plastic and a single hinge holding the lid, which wobbles when upright. Construction-wise, the Cute Meet 250 charging case isn't as solid and durable as the Cute 300 charging case, which is made of zinc allow and has a more sturdy hinge lid.


In terms of usability, the Cute Meet 250 charging case is as pocketable as the Cute 300 charging case. It fits nicely inside a small pocket shirt or trouser pocket without bulging out. The Cute Meet 250 earbuds are easy to remove from the charging case too.

Functionality wise, the Cute Meet 250 earbuds use the same hardware (e.g. 13mm dynamic drivers) and functions as the Meet 300, although touch sensitivity is lower on the Meet 250 so, you have to tap harder on the touch panel. 

 

Touch gesture controls include single, double and triple taps for controlling full audio playback (including volume), calls (answer/reject/end) and game mode. They're equipped also with a Qualcomm QCC3040 Bluetooth 5.2 chipset that supports aptX Adaptive, standard aptX, aptX-HD, SBC and AAC codecs. The Cute Meet 250 earbuds Most true wireless earbuds on the market do not support aptX - let alone aptX Adaptive - which delivers high definition audio and low latency.



Just on specs alone, the Cute Meet 250 earbuds beat a lot of the competition by including game mode and aptX Adaptive which is a low latency high definition codec. Game mode works great for low latency, although like with most game mode earbuds it does degrade the audio quality a little bit. Game mode also decreases wireless range and consumes more battery than aptX Adaptive. 

 


The game mode feature you get with most earbuds isn't as optimized as aptX Adaptive so, the performance isn't the same despite the low latency. The one thing the Cute Meet 250 earbuds do not support is multipoint connection so, you cannot connect multiple devices at the same time. There is absolute bluetooth volume support and, you can hear the "game mode" voice prompt at max volume too.



When pairing for the first time, you have to take the earbuds out of the charging case in order to pair and connect and, there is a 5 second re-connection delay when taking the earbuds out of the case. Other than that, you can switch between earbuds seamlessly for mono listening without audio disconnecting or pausing. The earbuds cannot be used separately though; hence each earbud cannot be connected with different devices.



Eppfun Cute 250 charging time is 1 hour for the earbuds and 1.5 hours for the charging case, which can hold about 20 hours worth of extra charge. The Cute 250 supports 10 minutes quick charge, which gives you 2 hours of playtime. From a single charge, you can get 6 hours at 50% volume. The call quality is also very good - providing clear, amplified calls - so, you can use the earbuds for taking calls anywhere including loud places, thanks to ENC noise suppression.


There is a cleaning cloth inside the box, which is an accessory you typically do not find with most earbuds. A cleaning is actually a useful add-on to help remove fingerprints from the earbuds and charging case. Overall, the Cute Meet 250 are more lightweight and more compact than the Cute Meet 300. The Cute Meet 250 earbuds are half a gram lighter in weight (3.5 gram), while the case measures 5.5cm long, 5.5cm wide and 2cm high and weighs 32 grams, which is 38 grams lighter than the Cute Meet 300 charging case.


The Cute Meet 250 and Cute Meet 300 are fundamentally the same product with the exception of the chargingcases, being plastic and metal. The Cute Meet 250 also ship with rubber wingtips, whereas the Cute Meet 300 do not. The wingtips provide a more secure fit when running, doing gym workouts and general exercise fitness.

The wingtips are easy to attach and remove but, the only drawback is that the earbuds do not fit inside the charging case when the wingtips are attached. This means, you have to remove and attach the wingtips every time, which will be an inconvenience for a lot of people. It would have been a good idea if the charging was made larger to accommodate the wingtips or if as small pouch was included to keep everything neatly together. You can buy the Cute Meet 250 from amazon.
