March 31, 2022 0 Comments

Among the growing number of audio companies with budget offers, Wings Lifestyle is slowly but surely becoming a significant one, with genuine wireless earphones and neckband-style wireless earphones, an indigenous audio brand. The Wings Slay is the latest addition to the relatively new company’s truly wireless portfolio, and is the cheapest TWS earphone they have to offer, priced at just 7 1,799. Let’s see if Wings has made a product worth considering below Rs 2,000 in our review.

Construction and comfort

Cheap and well built. These are two terms that in most cases are out of reach because falling prices usually mean lower build quality. However, the Wings Slay True Wireless Earphones, which are competitively priced at Rs 1,799, budget earphones build surprisingly well. Starting with the charging case, Wings Slay has one of the smallest true wireless charging cases we’ve ever seen. This tiny case has a square design with nice, rounded edges and a smooth finish.

The earphones are available in two color variants – gray and red. Both variants have a dual-tone and black is the secondary color. We’ve got gray and black variants for review, which are comparatively more fine-looking than Striking Red and Black. The wing’s logo is smeared on the top of the lid, while the front of the case has two white LEDs indicating the battery status of the case and the buds. It has a micro-USB port on the back, which is disappointing to see that many budget real wireless earphones are being converted to Type-C, however, we will give it a pass at Rs 1,799.

The outside of the case is black and the inside is a secondary color – gray or red depending on what you buy. Earphones carry dual-tone color. When it comes to earbuds, they are quite ergonomic and lightweight, and the rear housing has a wing logo. This is where the physical buttons are placed and this means that the wings have gone into touch control at this price point.

Buttons are easy to click, which means that pressing the buttons will not make the buds dig deeper into your ears. The buttons allow you to pause / play music with a single click, skip to the next track, and double-click on the right and left controls, respectively, to move to the previous one, and three times to the right increase the volume, while the left decreases it. In addition, pressing and holding both controls for 2 seconds will activate the voice assistant. We’ve found the controls to be responsive and accurate, but volume controls are a work in progress, especially if you want to increase or decrease the volume by multiple levels.

Overall, the buds are comfortable to wear for a long time and also have a decent fit. It was perfect for us to do activities like working around the house and jogging. Due to its relatively snag fit, passive isolation is also quite good. Additionally, if the fitted silicone tips don’t work well for you, the company has provided two extra pairs in the box. As everyone has said, the build quality and fit of the earphones has fascinated us, especially at this price.


Naturally, at Rs 1,799 you can’t expect to be loaded with a pair of genuine wireless earphone features. So, a pair of Wings Slay below 5K or 10K is not full to the brim with the features you want to get true wireless, but they have some basic things to explore. The earphones have an IPX5 water and sweat resistance rating which means you can use these earphones when you are exercising or in light rain. As mentioned above, it comes with voice assistant support. You also get a Bluetooth 5.0 connection, however, you are limited to the standard SBC codec because the earphones do not come with AAC or aptX support.

One feature that we are happy to see in these earphones is the mono listening mode. Both earbuds are master and so, you can use each earbud separately even if the other is inside the case. Note that you can only use the pause / play control while in mono mode.

On the other hand, battery life is a bit disappointing. You’ll get a total battery life of just 14 hours, only 3.5 hours of listening time through buds on a single charge. Although we understand that battery life is short due to its small size, it is unfortunate that earbuds have only 3.5 hours of play time despite being quite normal in size. In our experiments, at 50 percent volume, we recorded 3 hours and 10 minutes of play time in the bud, while the charging case backed them up three times more.


Equipped with a 6mm dynamic driver, the wings have an easy to grasp on the lower edge of the slay frequency spectrum. The shaft is significantly boosted to a point where it occasionally booms. In such tracks Another gives ten bitesBy t The queen, Voices and instruments are moved in the background due to thumping and booming base reactions. The midges have a lot of auditory masking which is due to the exaggerated alloys as well as the less stressed midges.

In addition, there is an apparent lack of detail, especially in low-bass, which is easy to hear Hunter By Bjork. The sub-base notes at the beginning of the song are very sketchy in detail and the earphones fail to reproduce the texture of these notes in a reliable way. There are punches but not enough substance to back up.

The mids, as mentioned earlier, are a bit less stressed which means they are sometimes lost on tracks that are running too much. The height is decent and in most cases does not seem small. Imaging is what we were fascinated by. Wings Slay accurately positions the instrument, even in crowd songs, and creates such tracks Hotel California By Eagle A pleasure to hear, for the most part.

Connected via Bluetooth 5.0, we got a stable connection throughout our test period and there was no lag or drop in the audio. However, when we played with these earphones, there was a strange and irregular beeping sound that kept coming up. We tested with another pair of true wireless earphones and the problem didn’t last, so it was a problem with the wings slay itself. After all, the quality of the call is quite decent. While the microphone picks up the voice quite clearly and it picks up the background noise during the call, we didn’t expect a budget earphone to cancel out the environmental noise for the call.

The last row

At Rs 1,799, Wings Slay is a decent budget purchase as it comes with very good build quality, comfortable fit, compact charging case, IPX5 rating and mono sound. However, the moderate sound quality and low battery life make it difficult for us to sincerely recommend these earphones. If you can expand your budget to 3K, there are even better sounding earphones with larger feature sets like the Plego T44 and Bolt Audio Airbus Livebuds. However, if you want to stick with TWS earphones below 2K, these earphones can be a decent purchase.
