Lypertek PurePlay Z3 2.0 True Wireless In Ear Isolating Earphones



The Lypertek PurePlay Z3 2.0 True Wireless In-Ear Isolating Earphones adds features such as the new Qualcomm QCC3040 chipset, PureControl app compatibility, Bluetooth 5.2, wireless charging and Hear Through mode to the multi-award-winning PurePlay Z3.

Out of the box, these things look pretty slick. The grey textured-fabric charging case looks a bit like a google home mini or an echo dot and would fit nicely into a small bag. It’s just a bit big for a pocket unless you have very large pockets, but if I am heading out for longer than the 7 hours battery life these give, chances are I have a bag with me anyway. It also seems quite robust, and certainly managed to survive me throwing it off my desk once or twice.

The box also came with the requisite differently sized ear-tips and a nice short USB-C charging cable. I settled on the foam tips, purely for comfort reasons, but the rubber tips looked equally good quality and I am sure they would take aftermarket tips if you cared enough to track some down. Isolation is very good, and I am able to sit at my desk typing this review and hear nothing of my keystrokes at all with music playing. In a reasonably quiet office, these should be ample to completely separate you from the world.

After an initial pairing, the moment they are taken out of the charging case, they automatically connect to the phone via Bluetooth, usually even before I have managed to get them anywhere near into my ears. They have yet to drop the connection, either, and the magnets holding them into the case feel reassuringly competent.

In the ears, these don’t exactly disappear, but then that’s no bad thing really. With no visual clues that you are wearing headphones, the potential for appearing to rudely ignore someone in public is high. These do stick out of the ears a bit, but they are surprisingly light and don’t move around while walking about. They are controllable via the buttons on the outside of the housing, via a series of single-, double-, and even triple-presses on one or other ear. Single press either side pauses. Double-tap volume (right up left down) and treble tap skips track (left-back, right forward).

I think the only one I am likely to make huge use of is the single-tap pause-play function, but the buttons seem pretty easy to operate, without being too crazily over-sensitive to random taps. There is also a handy little beep to let you know you have done ‘something’ whenever you press them, so any accidental presses would be easily identifiable. . The IPx7 water-resistance is also a nice reassuring feature, meaning that should you get caught in the rain they won’t immediately self-immolate in your ears.

The sound quality is really rather nice. Again, an area I was expecting to feel like a little more of a compromise does not in the slightest. Bass is plentiful without being overpowering, and more than weighty enough to feel appropriate with anything I threw at them. My tastes lean towards the acoustic side, but I did try them with some more electronic and beat-driven stuff, and they were very satisfying. The midrange is very solid, and instruments and voices sound pretty convincing and easy to listen to. Highs are very nice indeed and listening to something like the avalanches, it’s easy to hear the differences in recording quality and timbre between the various samples used.

The use of graphene coating for the drivers may well be marketing hubbub, but then again maybe not, as from a really light and low power amplification solution, they feel eminently capable. They are able to go comfortably (or uncomfortably) louder than I would ever listen for any length of time and don’t appear to be struggling with distortion or clipping at any point.

In summary, I love the Lypertek PurePlay Z3 2.0 True Wireless In-Ear Isolating Earphones. They are 100% my daily driver IEM, and I am a full convert to the joys of fully wireless. Would wholeheartedly recommend these to anybody, without fear of disappointment.
