True wireless earbuds are a dime a dozen these days but the Vissles 2-in-1 Music Pill is genuinely quite interesting and worth bringing up to your attention because its charging case doubles up as a portable speaker.

Does it work? Well, yes, it's not the last word in fidelity but it could be handy for sharing or simply playing some music in the room so it doesn't sound eerily quiet.

As for the rest of the earbud, it supports Bluetooth 5.0 and the AAC codec so it'll play well with iOS devices. It has an IPX5 rating for water-resistance so you can take it exercising.

Battery life is rated at 4 hours on a single charge and the charging case can provide up to four full charges.

The earbuds themselves are compact, comfortable to wear, and fit well in my ears. They are no physical buttons. Instead, they rely on touch controls to manage playback. Like most touch controls, it's not 100% reliable, but that's just the way touch controls are. As Trump recently puts it, "It is what it is."

Inside, they feature 6mm dynamic drivers and they sound surprisingly refined and balanced for their price. I hate to use the phrase "they punch well above their weight" but I think it's true here.

My biggest gripe with them is that they don't hold a wireless connection too well so dropouts were quite frequent, but that's maybe because I have many wireless devices around me.

The Vissles 2-in-1 Music Pill comes in black and white and is priced at US$65 (~S$89.23), which I think isn't too bad considering its features and surprisingly good sound quality.

You can find it on the Vissles online store.
