Mivi Collar Flash Review: Delivers a lot at Rs.999

Mivi is back in the Indian audio market this month with its new Mivi Collar Flash wireless neckband. As before, the company offers an affordable price, multiple color options, and obviously claims to offer so many features. Why don’t they? Being of Indian descent, Mivi knows what fans can expect. So here is the result.

The Mivi Collar Flash is launched today at Rs.999 only, although the MPR is mentioned at Rs.2,999 on the box. It is available through Amazon India. There are several color options: black, white, orange, blue, red and green. I had a chance to review the green variant, and here is my review after using it for more than a few days.

Characteristics :-

  • 10mm audio driver
  • Support for AVRCP, A2DP, HSP and HFP audio profiles
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • Dual pairing support
  • Up to 24 hours of battery life
  • Fast charging support
  • Powerful sound
  • Micro-MEMS

In the box :-

  • Mivi Flash Necklace
  • charging cable
  • Sillone Extra Gel Tips
  • Stationery store

Build quality and design:-

For long-lasting use, the build quality of a wireless neckband is important, as you have to hang it around your neck all the time. Mivi uses hard plastic to shape the new Flash necklace. Since the plastic material is a little splash and dust resistant, the neckband also has this capability by default. It is also IPX4 certified. So you don’t have to worry about sweat or dust anymore.

The volume buttons and the multifunction button are placed at the right end of the strip, along with a notification LED and the microphone. Buttons are clickable and responsive; however, the three forms are nearly identical. As a result, it becomes a bit difficult to distinguish between volume up/down or the multi-function button. But after using it for a while, it will be fine.

You can find the charging port just above the buttons. Let you know; it is a MicroUSB port. Considering the price, I have no complaints. On top of that, it supports fast charging, to come back to it later.

Although the band part is plastic, the bud area is metal. There are also magnets. So the buds stick together when not in use for a tangle-free experience.

Comfort & Use:-

To test the Collar Flash, I had to use it for a long time. It weighs about 30 grams. So easy to wear around the neck and does not slip. The heads are also light. During my long time of use, I did not feel any discomfort or pain. As it is dust and sweat resistant, it does not need to be cleaned very frequently.

Navigating tracks, handling calls and performing with the voice assistant is easy. Thanks to the responsive multifunction button. The volume buttons are also responsive. As I mentioned earlier, the shape of the MFB, volume up and down, buttons are almost the same. So it would be better if you spend some time with Collar Flash to get used to it.

The Flash collar supports dual pairing function. You can easily switch between devices with the MFB. Apart from that, there are ignore calls, mute microphone and other enabled features. You must press and hold the MFB for one second to ignore the incoming call. To mute or unmute the microphone, simply double tap the MFB. That’s it.

Audio and call quality:-

The Mivi Collar Flash houses dynamic 10mm audio drivers, which helps take your music to another level, according to Mivi. Plus, it provides HD stereo sound and solid bass. If all these criteria are your main criteria, you can definitely opt for this Flash Necklace.

The audio quality is nice and well tuned. It never distorted even at full volume. Every sound in the content, whether it’s quiet or louder surrounding sound, is delivered with precision and clarity. Super strong bass is highlighted. Collar Flash provides accurate and sufficient bass. It’s not an ear shake, but the exact output for me.

I tried music on several online platforms including Hungama Music (with HD audio quality setting), JioSaavn (Really High), YouTube and web content as well as Netflix and Prime Video. My experience has been the same every time: nice, high-quality stereo audio output without over-amplification of any audio properties.

I witnessed so many calls during the testing process. Mivi puts a MEMS microphone in it. The overall experience was good. My voice was clearly audible on the other side. So no one complained.

Battery backup and charging:-

First of all, Collar Flash comes with fast charging support. According to the company’s claim, it can provide up to 10 hours of battery life against just 10 minutes of charging. Otherwise, you can get up to 24 hours of playback at 70% volume. It takes about 40 minutes to fully charge.

When I received the device, it had a battery life of 70%. It took about 15 hours to drain the entire charge. My volume level was at 80% most of the time. With a 5W charger, the battery charges in about 50 minutes. There is a MicroUSB port for charging which is okay under Rs.1,000.

Thus, the battery backup and charging are up to the market at the Rs.999 price range. Backup time should be enough for a full day of heavy use.

Connectivity:-

The connectivity service is supported by Bluetooth 5.0. It has the dual pairing feature enabled. Connectivity is solid and reliable enough. Pairing with devices is fast. For me, it barely managed to connect with the last paired device. Connectivity remains strong for approximately 6 meters in a home environment.
