The newly released Belkin truly wireless earbuds come with noise cancellation and a few extras. The earphones aim to do more than just listen to music. Besides being Belkin’s priciest pair yet, the Soundform Immerse is also thicker. This isn’t your regular AirPods competitor, taking more inspiration from stemless buds you see everywhere.
Simple design, with a fairly thick body that rests in your ears, and a small ear wing that can nestle in your ear folds. It helps that the Immerse earphones have an ear wing, but they’re not too uncomfortable, and their size makes sense given what’s inside.
Each earpiece includes 12mm drivers and supports aptX audio, as well as a battery that lasts 7 hours with 24 more hours stored in the case.
The “Find My” network lets you track things, like AirTags, using iCloud. However, this technology rarely extends beyond Apple’s products. That said, Belkin offers some devices that support it, including the Soundform Immerse.
You can ping your earbuds to find them in your home, and they support Google Fast Pair so you can connect your Android device to the earphones quickly and easily. It’s one of the extra features of the Belkin Soundform Immerse, along with IPX5 water resistance (also known as sweat resistance).
As long as you leave the settings in the app alone, you get a fairly balanced sound.
It’s decently bassy, with some earth-shaking sounds that aren’t lost to the fuzz, and everything else is clear and detailed, with an acceptable rendition.
While it’s not exactly audiophile grade like Belkin’s press materials suggest, the Soundform Immerse is still an outstanding upgrade over the previous Soundform truly wireless model.
Belkin’s ANC earphones have decent battery life, offering up to 7 hours in the earphones and 24 in the case. Those earphones have the same battery life as most noise cancelling earphones on the market, so nothing new here, and the case charges wirelessly with Qi.
Soundform Immerse is a much better pair of earphones than Belkin’s previous ones. If you leave them in their default settings, they actually sound pretty good.
