ZAGG Week Part 6: iFrogz Plugz, Charisma, Summit, and Impulse Wireless Earbuds

ZAGG Plugz WirelessOkay, we are going to conclude ZAGG week with not one, but four pairs of earbuds, and they are all wireless. I’m really going to be cramming a lot of information into this, but I will start by saying that they are all under $39.99. This includes the Plugz Wireless, Charisma Wireless, Summit Wireless, and the Impulse Wireless.

The Plugz Wireless are basically a very standard lightweight pair of Bluetooth earbuds. It has a wireless Bluetooth hub that can clip to the shirt collar, and this is a magnetic clip, which gives full control to the user for calls and music. By the way, it can store the earbuds when not in use.

I’ll get to the price eventually, but I will let you decide if it is worth its low price because it has 9 mm drivers. In case you are concerned about the fit, it has three sizes of earbuds, and they are IPX-2 certified to be resistant to sweat.

All right, let’s get to the price. You can get them on the ZAGG site for $29.99 in silver and blue.

ZAGG Charisma earbudsOkay, so let’s talk about the Charisma Wireless, which looks a lot like the Plugz. They seem to be targeted for females in bragging that they were “designed by women, for women”.

I’ve reviewed earbuds for women before, such as the Maroo GEM earbuds, and these are less pink and feminine looking. Apparently, they are trying to forget about the drab design.

Much of the specifications are similar to the Plugz, and this includes that wireless hub that can clip magnetically to the shirt. They are also IPX-2 standardized, so they are resistant to sweat. Also, it is good for 10 hours of battery life, which is something that I forgot to report about when it came to the Plugz.

Now, here’s where it differs. The drivers are about 6 mm, so that is a little bit smaller. It is available on the ZAGG site for the same price of $29.99 in Black/Red, White/Rose Gold, and Gray.

ZAGG Summit WirelessNote that both of the earbuds that I have reviewed are sweat-resistant, but the Summit Wireless are made for an exercise culture. You will notice that each individual earbud has a wing on it that are made to hold it in place.

Other than the shape of the earbud, it doesn’t seem to have any improvements over its sweat resistance, I guess. It does have 8 mmm drivers, so that is something great.

It looks like in addition to being wireless, it has that wireless hub that has a clip to secure the earbuds when not in use. Oh, it also has the three sizes of earbud tips, and the 10 hours per charge.

You can find the Summit Wireless on the ZAGG site for about $39.99 in Black or Red.

ZAGG Impulse WirelessAnd now, we are on the last iFrogz wireless earbuds with the Impulse Wireless. About the only difference is that this brags of reflective acoustics which is “advanced audio technology engineered to create premium sound and rich, natural clarity”.

Oh wait, there is another difference. This has 11 mm drivers, so I guess this makes it the largest of the drivers of the four we are reviewing today.

This has the sweat-resistant design and a wireless hub that clips to the shirt collar. By the way, I feel that I should have said that all four of these have an Earbud Tips for Life limited lifetime warranty, so if the eartips get worn or damaged, they will be replaced.

You can get the Impulse Wireless on the ZAGG site for about $39.99 in White/Rose Gold and Black/Silver.
