Pamu Quiet Mini Earbuds Pros

Active Noise Cancelation

The most eye-catching feature in the PaMu Quiet Mini is Active Noise Cancelation. When you see earbuds with ANC, straight away you would assume the product will come with a hefty price tag. However, these buds have proved to all of us that it doesn’t cost much to own ANC-enabled truly wireless earbuds. PaMu Quiet Mini is different from what most other truly wireless earbuds which have ANC. These buds use both mics, feed-forward mic, and feedback mic, to deliver better active noise cancelation using Hybrid noise cancelation technology. PaMu guarantees it keeps out frequencies up to 40dB. You can switch on/off ANC using the PaMu Quiet app on your phone. It also comes with the transparency mode which you can use to aware of your surroundings.

Bluetooth 5.2

The latest version Bluetooth 5.2 has much improved features from the more common Bluetooth 5.0. It introduces a new high-quality, low-power audio codec called the Low Complexity Communications Coded (LC3). LC3 provides high quality even at lower data rates than the standard SBC codec used in Bluetooth Classic implementations. It also increases efficiency when it comes to power consumption. Pamu Quiet Mini supports Bluetooth 5.2, which provides extremely low latency. These buds also come with a game mode option, which provides immersive gaming sound with extremely low latency.

Dual Master Earbuds with Synchronous transmission

This upgraded transmission technology allows the buds to work independently. Not only you can use one earbud while the other is charging on the case, but you can also use the two earbuds in two separate devices at the same time. This feature is unique to the PaMu Quiet Mini and it is not a feature we have come across in other devices. You can switch from stereo mode to mono mode seamlessly without any effect on the quality of sound.

Customizable controls

The PaMu mobile app adds more value to the product. It allows the user to customize controls according to their preference. Unfortunately, there aren’t many options when it comes to controls on either bud. However, you can choose from a variety of commands from the app.

IPX4 water resistance rating

The PaMu comes with an IPX4 water resistance rating. It allows the user to use these buds during a heavy workout. You don’t need to worry about sweat dripping on the buds since it is fully sweatproof. It will also withstand water splashes from any direction which means a slight drizzle during your morning jog, would not harm the buds.

PaMu Quiet Mini Earbuds Con

5 hours of battery life + 15 hours from the charging case

The buds however last only 5 hours from a single charge. This is leaning towards the lower spectrum when it comes to power consumption. This also means it will tough for a user to get through the day without using the charging case for extra fuel. The charging case only provides 3 charging cycles which is also on the lower side.

Design and Durability

The PaMu Quiet Mini has a stencil design with touch-capacitive controls on either bud. There are three color options; black, white, and blue. Each bud only weighs approximately 5g. There are three sizes of ear tips which you can use from. The design is comfortable and you can wear these buds without any fatigue on your ear for a longer time.
The buds are made of hard plastic and it comes with a water resistance rating of IPX4. It is sweat-proof and it can withstand water splashing from any angle. You can use these buds during your high-intensity workout and these would survive a slight drizzle as well. The rating is similar to what you get from the Apple Airpod Pro. However, unlike the Jabra Elite Active 75t, these buds would not survive been submerged in water.

Control and Digital Assistant

Like we mentioned earlier in the cons, the PaMu Quiet Mini has limited controls. The touch capacitive controls are easy to use with but the lack of controls makes things complicated for the user. The default controls are,

Left Bud Buttons Functions

Tap Once

play/pause or answer/decline

Tap Twice

Previous song/reject call

Tap & Hold

Digital assistant

Right Bud Buttons Functions

Tap Once

play/pause or answer/decline

Tap Twice

next song/reject call

Tap & Hold

ANC on/off or Transparency mode

However, all these controls are customizable using the PaMu mobile application. This adds more value for these buds and it is not something you would get with the Sony WF 1000XM3’s ANC buds.

App and Special Features

The PaMu Quiet Mini comes with a mobile application. The mobile application provides updates and control customization. You can also switch ANC on and off or select Transparency mode using the app. Transparency mode allows the user to be aware of the surroundings, the three mics work in tandem to feed in ambient noises so that you would know what is going on around you.

These buds also have Dual Master Technology. This upgraded transmission technology allows the buds to work independently. Not only you can use one earbud while the other is charging on the case, but you can also use the two earbuds in two separate devices at the same time. This feature is rare in most buds and it is certainly not something you would get with Samsung Galaxy Buds Live which also has Active Noise Cancelling.
These buds also come with a game mode option, which provides immersive gaming sound with extremely low latency.

Audio Quality

The PaMu Quiet Mini excel when it comes to audio output. This was an area we were worried about since these buds are so cheap. But since we got these buds on, we haven’t been disappointed. The PaMu Quiet Mini has rich bass. It is not mushy or congested and it works well with the treble. The buds surprised us with a good dynamic response and clear audio separation. It provides a bright and balanced output. However, we feel the rich bass certainly exceeded our expectations.

Noise Cancelation

PaMu Quiet Mini comes with Active Noise Cancelation. However, it is different from what most other truly wireless earbuds which have ANC. These buds use both mics, feed-forward mic, and feedback mic, to deliver better active noise cancelation using Hybrid noise cancelation technology. PaMu guarantees it keeps out frequencies up to 40dB. During testing, we noticed some noises leaking through with ANC switched on. When you look at Sony WF 1000XM3 or the Apple Airpod Pros, which keeps out 90% of ambient noise, these buds keep out approximately 70% of outside noise. Still, it is worth what you pay to get these buds.

Battery and Performance

Another disappointing area in these buds. The PaMu Quiet Mini only lasts a little more than 4.5 hours with ANC. This is average when it comes truly wireless earbuds. Apple Airpod Pro also has similar battery performance. But if you are looking to get through the day without having to use the charging case, these buds are not for you. However, there is a relief for the user because these buds have quick charging functions where you can add one hour of playback from just 10 minutes on the charging case.

Charging Case

The charging case is lightweight and easy to slide into your pocket. The box includes a carrying punch in which you can put the charging case to prevent it from getting any scratches. The case comes with a USB Type-C charging port and it also supports Qi Wireless charging. This makes life easier for the user who can use their power-sharing smartphone to charge the case in an emergency. However, the case design and finish look very simple and it does not provide any prestige or classiness when it comes to appearance. When you look at the charging case of JBL Tune 225, there is a certain rich look and feel to it, which is absent in this charging case.

Call Quality & Connectivity

The mics do a good job of picking up the voice in crowded noisy areas. Even though you sound more digital, it provides good clarity which is important when it comes to calls. These buds also use the latest Bluetooth version, Bluetooth 5.2. It has much improved features including high quality, low-power audio codec called the Low Complexity Communications Coded (LC3). LC3 provides high quality even at lower data rates than the standard SBC codec used in Bluetooth Classic implementations. It also increases efficiency when it comes to power consumption. This technology provides extremely low latency which is perfect for movies and games.

Final Say

It was a treat to review the PaMu Quiet Mini because it proved to us that you don’t have to pay big money to enjoy good features and good audio quality nowadays. If you are someone who is not too hung up on brands, who look into the efficient and economical product, the PaMu Quiet Mini is perfect for you. This is what we think, do let us know your experience with these buds.
