If you’re a runner or cyclist, or generally just don’t like wires, then true wireless earbuds might be right up your alley. Over the past year or so, there’s definitely been an influx of models and brands entering the TWS market. Padmate previously successfully funded their PaMu Scroll TWS earbuds on Indiegogo and are back with a slightly different style: the PaMu Slide TWS earbuds.
UPDATED (07/19/2019): Be sure to check out our full review!
The company is going up directly against Apple’s Airpods 2 with this campaign, both in style and in sound quality. The new TWS earbuds are using the latest Qualcomm QCC3020 for better sound, lower power consumption, and a more stable signal.
“The core processing chip is the most important part of earphones, like the heart to a human. A great chip means you can have better sound quality, lower power consumption, more stable signal connection! The PadMate team worked with Qualcomm engineers, supported by Intel techniques, developed PaMu Slide. The core processing chip of PaMu Slide is Qualcomm QCC3020. That’s the most advanced TWS earphone chip we have known on the markets. Many other major brands like Bose, Sony or Jabra are still using Qualcomm CSR8000 series, last generation chips. Apple released Airpods 2 with new H1 chip. We united with Qualcomm and Intel, to develop the most powerful Qualcomm 3020 equipped PaMu Slide, to compete against Airpods 2. Many specs of PaMu Slide are even better than Airpods 2!”PaMu Slide press release

The PaMu Slide TWS earbuds are already fully funded with a month left in the campaign. There are still a number of Super Early Bird perks left, allowing you to grab these US$200 for as low as $69. We have a pair in-house so check back for our full review in the next week or two. Shipping is anticipated for July of this year.
On that note, even though the campaign is fully funded, as with any crowdfunding campaign, there is a risk supporting them. We’ve recently heard about several that we’ve written about that have failed or are having issues. Our reporting on Indiegogo campaigns does not mean we support or are affiliated with them. Support at your own risk.
