Each earbud is only distinguished by the letters L and R. They have good finishes and are constructed of good quality plastic. They weigh little and are comfortable and light, about 4.6 grams.
Advanced microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) microphones have been incorporated, along with the latest version of active noise cancellation technology Clear Voice Capture (cVc) from Qualcomm on Melomania 1, favoring clear voice calls with minimal distraction from background noise.
They fit well in the ear thanks to the different sizes of the included ear cushions, isolating from outside noise. The pads are made of silicone or foam (Memory Foam), to choose the ones that are most comfortable and best adapt to each person.
