UNBOXED: Reviewing the Cleer ALLY True Wireless Headphones
Undoubtedly, the true wireless headphone market is getting incredibly crowded and potentially confusing for consumers. So many options exist today, each touting their own benefits and unique feature sets. But when you boil this space down three things stand out as critical when it comes to deciding what works best for the consumer: comfort, security (meaning how well they stay in your ears), and clarity. In that regard, the Cleer ALLY True Wireless Headphones certainly stand out.
Cleer is a company that, over the past few years, has done quite a bit in trying to redefine itself and its products. Those efforts were recently realized in the form of their FLOW headphones, which are among the best midrange over-ear headphones we’ve ever strapped on. Now, Cleer hopes to follow that up with the launch of their first true wireless option in the ALLY headphones.
There are plenty of ways in which we’ll break these headphones down, but let’s start with those three points that seem to matter most in this category. Starting with comfort. Out of the box, the wing-tip fit that Cleer applies to these buds worked best for me. The tip itself provides a snug fit that fills the ear and prevents outside noise from bleeding into the listening experience. And the wing tip isn’t so long that you feel like you’re being stabbed inside the ear. I could go hours, easily, with these headphones in without feeling excessive pressure or feeling like I needed to take a break. Of course, if the fit out of the box isn’t the best for the consumer, Cleer provides plenty of options—including three sets of wings and three different tip sizes. So, finding the perfect fit for you shouldn’t be too hard.
