These are the Lenovo Smart Wireless Earbuds. While the name isn't very catchy, what might get you is how they sound and the convenience of using them.
First off, the build quality on these earbuds isn't bad. While there's nothing special about the design, they are made with a sturdy plastic that will definitely hold up. They fit well and are comfortable after long periods of time, which is something I can't say for every pair of earbuds.
One of the main features that are always a welcome addition is Google Fast Pair and multipoint pairing. Google Fast Pair lets you easily pair your device with minimal setup while multipoint pairing lets you connect to both a PC and Android phone at the same time, so you never need to re-pair your earbuds.
The Lenovo Smart Wireless Earbuds also have touch controls, which can be customized to activate Google Assistant through the Lenovo Smart Wearables app. The controls work well, though there is a little bit of input lag when using them.
The case is pretty sturdy and isn't so bulky that it causes pain when shoving it into your pocket. What's nice is the ease of putting away the earbuds in the case. Some earbud cases aren't designed well and require some extra work to get the buds in. The Lenovo Smart Earbuds pop right in with little effort.
The case is chargeable over USB-C and wirelessly, making it super easy to get a full charge. A single charge on the earbuds will get you about 7 hours, which I found to be true.
As for sound, these earbuds are my new go-to. They aren't overly bassy, or so undefined everything sounds muffled. They are well-detailed and provide great sound, making them one of the better earbuds we've tried for under $100.
