I started noticing the FIIL with FIIL T1X TWS – a pair of budget earbuds that sound good for the price and their higher end models like FIIL CC – that apparently is a copy of the AirPods’ design and sounding profile and admittedly they did great. The FIIL CC Pro (Pro means ANC) are the latest pair from FIIL, not to compete with AirPods Pro they are are much cheaper and offer workable features.
With wireless charging, automatic ear detection and multiple modes for noise cancellation, the FIIL CC PRO have all features that AirPods Pro do, and are sold for much less.
Charging case is compact and solid build quality. The buds appear with long-stem, the housings are quite comfortable to fit into the ear. Typically I don’t see this design stands out, just general looking at its best.
The buds are equipped with Airoha chipset for great call quality with 3 mics on each bud – to capture the user’s voice and other tasks related to NC and transparency feature. They offer 4 modes NC modes – it maximizes the NC performance, monitoring mode – let you hear the notification sound clearly if you at train station, transparent mode – you can hear the whole world around you while wearing the bud and wind mode – when you riding bike or running outdoor – it focuses on cancelling out the wind noises.
Bluetooth chipsets makers like Airoha have developed more models and added more functionalities to their chipsets to compete with Apple’s inhouse chip and Qualcomm’s. Their most recent functions are ambient sound mode, hybrid ANC, side tone feature and Programmable EQ. In other words, they offer the same solutions as other for cheaper price.
If you look for something cheap, decent performance for all existing features to date in TWS earbuds, the FIIL CC PRO will be most likely a choice.
FIIL CC PRO are currently available for pre-order on JD.com and are expected to ship on April 11, 2021. For review of this set please check back for update.
