The Meizu Pop can be paired to a smartphone with Bluetooth version 5.2 and offers optimised low-frequency sound and balanced highs through its Graphene diaphragm. The earbuds are water resistant with IPX5 certification.
The Meizu EP52 Lite earphones, on the other hand, are the affordable pair of earphones meant for outdoor use like running and cycling.

The wireless earphones offer a sensitivity of 106dB @ 1kHz, an impedance of 32ohms and a total output of 10mW. The EP52 Lite comes with 8 hours of music playback on a single charge cycle but can be active for 150 hours on standby when connected.
