Hayle With its GT1 series of headphones, it is climbing up the wireless headphones market at a really good pace and has a total of 3 models: GT1, GT1 Plus and GT1 Pro.
GT1 Plus will be described in detail in this review to see if it is really worth it.
We bought them here 👇

Packing with cable and spare rubber bands
The earphones come in a small black box in which the rechargeable box is located and the earphones in them. Inside is also rechargeable micro USB cable together with two pairs spare rubber bands.
Overall, they give the impression they have for their price. This is not a premium piece, but it is not a Chinese "fake" either. The Haylou logo is on the top of the box.
We would also mention the very surface of the charging box, which is prone to scratches - if you want it to be nice, you have to watch out for it.
Better chip, stamina and sound
If you do not want to read all the details about the headphones and are interested in the main differences from the cheaper GT1, here you have them. Newer was used Qualcomm QCC3020 chip, which also provides better battery life at the same battery capacity.
Compared to the old generation, headphones have overall endurance 18 hours instead of 12 hours / stamina per charge 5 hours instead of three.
The membrane that received biological material also underwent a change. The difference is also in dual communication mode and better APTX codec.
The dimensions remain the same, they are compact
Compared to the classic version of the headphones remained the same size. The box has 6.20 x 4.00 x 2.72 cm and fits snugly in your cam. Inside, there are the touch-controlled headphones themselves.
Box still contains LED for charging indication and micro USB port. The absence of LED indicators for battery status freezes. The LED diode is also on both "plugs", which indicate on and off.
The headphones are very lightweight (only 3,9 g) av ears hold well. There was no need to replace the rubber bands. Compared to Redmi AirDots or Xiaomi AirDots Pro, the feeling of headphones in the ears is much more comfortable and holds more firmly.
We would not expect such a good sound with cheap headphones. Haylou GT1 Plus are particularly distinctive the quality of their basses. It is good to see the qualitative shift of manufacturers even with such cheap products.
The overall sound balance is slightly better than the first GT1 models, possibly thanks to the biological membrane and aPTX codec from Qualcomm. They also received dual decoding AAC HD.
Stamina has improved
The battery capacity for the headphones and charger box remained the same, but the battery life is clearly better. Headphones have 43 mAh and box 310 mAh.
In our test, the headsets lasted to play 6,5 hours and the manufacturer writes 5 hours. The right handset lasted even longer than the left, it discharged after 6,5 hours, which is very interesting.
The charging box according to the manufacturer will extend the endurance to 18 hours.
Touch controls sometimes interfere
Haylou GT1 Plus also includes touch control and their preference is subjective. The contact surface is almost on the entire outer side of the headphones.
We were personally hindered by this type of control, for example when running or exercising, where there were unwanted touches during correction. Overall, we prefer mechanical buttons, which also give feedback feedback.
So we can say that they are rather leisure headphones for use when reading or working at the computer. But thanks to their good grip in the ear they can also be used while running,
Dual communication mode
In practice, this means that the device connect both headphones and there is no main - managing. At the beginning we had to get used to it from the classic single-channel mode, but in the end we evaluate it as a better solution.
Pairing is very fast and if you need to connect to another device, just hold the headphones for a long time when you turn them on, and they will then pair.
It works great too noise suppression - but only mechanical suppression with rubber bands is excellent. They use DSP technology like most headphones in this price range.
Waterproof certification is also an advantage, which means they can also be used in activities where they come into contact with water.
But there is no waterproof underwater, they can withstand only slight drops or sweat drops.
