The headphones are placed in a charging pod a egg shape, with elegant black streaks. The TWS are magnetically positioned inside the case, so as to remain firmly in place during recharging and possible transport. Headphones, on the other hand, are basically composed of three different parts: the first is the terminal with the case from which the sound is diffused, rounded and characterized by the Open Rock logo.
The second part, however, is made of soft silicone to ensure flexibility to the shape that wraps around the ear: in this case we find a dark gray color that stands out from the previous black.

La music fidelity remains intact, but you still have to pay attention to the use cases. Highly raising the volume, for example, the open ear design transforms the headphones into real speakers: therefore, those around us could easily listen to our own music, then becoming a privacy problem in case we are having a telephone conversation or you are listening to private voice messages. The problem is counteracted by normalizing the volume: to levels around 50%For example, the noise emitted by the headphones will be sufficient to be heard by the user, but not by the people around them.
Furthermore, each headset is equipped with a CVC 8.0 microphone with noise cancellation, so as to ensure that our interlocutor hears our voice clearly and loudly too.

The charging case also guarantees at least more 24 hours of total playback, but the real strength probably lies in the fast charging of the headphones: with only 5 minutes of rest in the custody, in fact, le OpenRock Pro they will gain almost an hour of playback, useful for easily completing the training session to the rhythm of the music.
