First impressions, overview of features
The Dodocool DA131 earphones has made a big and positive impression on us. They look very aesthetically and give the impression of high quality (despite their low price). They have interesting shapes and are quite large, but we are not surprised that these earphones are to be universal, and at the same time multimedia, and to provide high-quality sound with Virtual 5.1 Surround Sound. Below are some pictures.
These black earphones with a red dot in the middle, they look really great. The use of loop cable, sticking out of the earphones to the earphone mounting in the ears is an interesting idea, and provides solid mount earphones in your ears. Although we think that earphones with protruding cable (loop-shaped), mounted in the ears look a little not aesthetically (a matter of taste), but very practically, and with such a method of assembly do not fall out of ears. Below the pictures with Dodocool DA131 earphones mounted.
On the right side of the cable, within the reach of the mouth (when the earphones are attached), there is a multifunction button (Remote Control) with MIC. When enjoying music – single press: play/pause, double press: next track, triple press: previous track. When there is a coming call – single press to answer a call, double press to end a call, press for 2 seconds to decline an incoming call. Press for about 3 seconds to activate voice control.
Multifunction buttons work fine. Indeed, Virtual 5.1 / 3D surround works amazingly well. The Dodocool DA131 earphones perfectly simulate 5.1 multi-channel sound. If you run audio / video samples in DTS, Dolby Digital, Dolby Atmos format you can get the feel of home cinema and 5.1 surround sound. Just play some samples from Youtube and movies from your home library. Earphones have amazing bass, which like the real 5.1 home cinema plays a huge role, also in the Dodocool DA131 earphones are the lead. The bass is really “fleshy”. If you listen to house music, techno and derivatives then you will be satisfied. Of course, the high and middle tones are nothing short of, and they complement the whole thing perfectly (I’m not an audiophile, so sorry for amateur statements).
Dodocool DA131 are earphones worth buying (If you are looking for this type of earphones). In these earphones, you will be happy to watch movies and play, but you can not forget the phone calls (very clearly you hear the caller). Indeed the Dodocool team has made great multimedia and universal earphones with 3D Surround Sound in a stereo earphone that can be used with many devices. The price of the earphones also does not detract, and it is also a big plus. We recommend Dodocool In-ear Virtual 5.1 Surround Sound Multimedia Stereo Earphones (DA131).
