Engadget Review

Nura helped pioneer the trend of headphones with personalized sound. The Nuraloop brings that technology to a smaller, sport-friendly form factor. Not only that, but almost all the smart features we enjoyed from the original model have returned. The ability to connect them via Bluetooth and 3.5mm makes them more versatile than most wireless buds, while active noise cancelation rounds out the feature list. A few minor usability quirks might be annoying to some, but overall these are a stellar option for sporty music lovers.

Tech Advisor
NuraLoop manages to condense the audio wizardry found in the company's first product and deliver an in-ear alternative that's hard to beat in terms of comfort, quality sound, top-notch noise cancellation and battery longevity. Better yet, it undercuts the likes of Apple's AirPods Pro while delivering a superior audio experience.

Fans of high powered but easy to use audio gear should get to know the NuraLoop. While there are a few annoying features, the overall quality of its sound and richness of its user experience shouldn't be ignored.

Even with a crowded market, there’s still nothing else out there that’s quite like the NuraLoop buds. The underlying technology is excellent, and it’s wrapped up in a well-thought-out package.

At the end of the day, if you want a pair of earbuds that ticks all the boxes, then these NuraLoop, in my opinion, are the best $200 you’ll spend.

Their personalization is something nobody else is really doing, and the sound that comes out of them is great. The buds last quite a long time and offer both Bluetooth and wired options. This combination makes them some of the most versatile earbuds on the market right now.
