Less and less people buy wired earbuds because wireless Bluetooth earbuds are far more comfortable. Rowkin Bit Charge are very popular because of their ergonomic design, classy look and great sound quality. If you are looking for the best wireless headphones for running and sports, continue reading the Rowkin Bit Charge review by Buyer’s Captain.
Rowkin Bit Charge Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Review
Most people who want to buy good wireless earbuds use them at the gym or need them for running. That’s why your wifi headphones should be water resistant with high ingress protection (IP) rating. Of course, your next in ear headphones should feel good and comfortable when you use them for a few hours. The battery should also be powerful enough to keep the earbuds running enough time on a single charge.
Rowking Bit Charge combines all mentioned advantages. Moreover, they are considered one of the best wireless headphones on the market and also one of the smallest cordless hands-free mini earphones you can buy. Now that we have already praised them enough, let’s take a closer look at the pros and cons of the Rowkin Bit and their specifications.
Moreover, they are IPX5 rated. They are water resistant and sweat proof. You can use them at work, at the gym or when you are running. You won’t feel any discomfort or pain in your ears even after hours of listening to music or skype conversations.
Sound Quality and Rowkin Bit Charge Review
The sound quality is pretty decent for in-ear style earbuds. The Rowkin wireless earbuds are well balanced. They have surprisingly good bass for such small headphones. Of course, you can’t expect the quality to be as good as other bigger over-ear wireless headphones like Cowin E-7 for instance. Yet, if you buy Rowkin cordless earbuds, you will enjoy listening to your favorite songs and you will hardly find better sounding in-ear earbuds on the market.
If you have already possessed wireless earbuds, you probably know one of their biggest downside – the connectivity issues. Every time I’ve tested different wifi earbuds, I experience the same audio drop outs. Sometimes, one of the two buds goes silent for a moment or the sound of both earbuds dims out before it comes back almost instantly. These problems are usually due to interference from other WiFi devices around your earbuds.
When you are using Rowking Bit Charge for phone calls, they work just fine. We from Buyer’s Captain have tested them and my colleagues could hear me as good as I could hear them too. You could tell that the conversation was with headphones but the quality was OK.
Rowkin Bit Charge Case Specifications
The charging case is one of the coolest features of the Bit Charge. It serves as a storage unit where you can easily keep the earbuds safe when you are on-the-go thanks to the magnetic end. You can easily attach the earbuds to the charging port when you push the bottom of the charging case up. If you push the bottom down, the earbuds will be secured in the housing. We have tested the device multiple times and the earbuds have never fallen down. So you can rest assure the magnets are powerful enough to keep these ultra small headphones safely stuck to the case.
Moreover, this sleek aluminum shell case doubles as an external battery which you could use with other electronics using a micro USB cable. There is a LED indicator blinking in blue that indicates the capacity of the battery. There is a 6-inch micro USB cable included in the standard package of the Rowkin Bit Charge.
When the convenient charging case is fully charged, it’s able to recharge the two Rowkin Bit mini headphones up to 15 times. With a single charge, the earbuds will run for about 180 minutes (3 hours). This means that if you are somewhere without electricity, you can use your wifi earbuds for about 45 hours (15 charges x 3 hours). This is pretty impressive for such a small charging case. Do you agree?

Both Bluetooth headphones have a status LED indicating three important things: the power status of each earbud, which one is the master earbud and which one is the “slave”, the pairing status of the earbuds with other devices. When you insert the earbuds into the slots of the portable charging case, they immediately start charging. The LED indicators turn red while the headphones are charging. When the charging process is done, the red lights go out.
There is also one tiny multi-function button located on the face. This button is very useful. It initiates pairing between devices, plays/pauses songs and other media, answers and rejects incoming calls, activates voice control and of course toggles power. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a track skipping function which is not cool for people who want to buy small earbuds mainly for listening to music.
If you have an iPhone, you can activate Siri via the main button located on both buds. Your smartphone will never have to leave your pocket thanks to this excellent stereo hands-free device. Another great feature is the smart multipoint connectivity. If you use just one of the earbuds, you can pair it with up to two Bluetooth source devices.
You get truly wireless stereo pairing thanks to the Bluetooth 4.1 technology. The state of the art audio decode technology allows you to pair the two cordless buds of Rowking Bit Charge just as Apple AirPods. You will experience a great stereo sound quality. Another cool feature is the noise reduction and echo cancellation.
