So overall, I think the Hippo Boom Plus comes down to these – are you looking to get a pair of earphones that gives you an immense amount of bass at a low with a single-button in-line control? If yes, the Hippo Boom Plus is the only one for you. If you’re looking for something with a more balanced sound with the in-line buttons, the Xiaomi Piston earphones (which we reviewed) are for you.
Priced at RM99 over at Jaben Malaysia, it’s really not that expensive. Compared to the Xiaomi Piston earphones, you’ll have to pay RM50 for the earphones, and if you’re buying one unit alone, you’ll have to pay RM25 for shipping. If and only if you are going to buy two of the Xiaomi Piston earphones is when you’ll save that RM25. And it also takes about a week in the most ideal cases. Bummer.
Thanks Jaben Malaysia for letting us review the Hippo Boom Plus!
