Anker Earbuds Soundcore R100 is the first product under the R-series. Anker says these earbuds have been designed specifically for millennials and Gen Z customers.
In terms of design, the R100 has an in-ear fit with silicone ear tips. Anker includes three pairs of ear tips inside the box. Though there is also a white color variant, only the black one is available in Nepal.
The charging case here is an elliptical one with an LED indicator on the front. The earbuds have an IPX5 rating which makes them suitable to wear during physical workouts.
On the audio front, the R100 features a 10mm driver with an impedance of 16 Ohms. Likewise, it has a frequency response range of 200Hz to 20kHz. You also get Anker’s proprietary BassUp technology here.
There is a dedicated Bass mode in Anker Earbuds Soundcore R100 that users can switch to by pressing either button three times. Anker hasn’t offered any high bit-rate audio codecs here since the R100 supports the basic SBC and AAC codecs only.
Unlike most wireless earbuds in this price range, the Soundcore R100 doesn’t have a touch-capacitive control center. This means you’ll have to physically press the button on either earbud to control playback and so on. In terms of connectivity, the Anker Soundcore R100 comes with Bluetooth 5.0 protocol with a wireless range of 10 meters.
Battery and Charging in Anker Earbuds Soundcore R100
Moving on, Anker has not specified the battery size of these earbuds but says you can get 6.5 hours of playback time on a full charge. Similarly, the combined battery life with the charging case rounds out to 25 hours.
On the other hand, the power case charges via the Type-C port at the bottom. It supports fast charging technology where 10 minutes of charging adds 1 hour of playback. Similarly, it takes 1.5 hours for the R100 to completely fuel up.
