With a water-resistance rating of IP66, the Lavanda Lune are highly water and dust resistant which makes them ideal for use outdoors or in a hostile environment. Each earbud weighs just 5g and they feel superbly comfortable to wear.
Both earbuds include touch controls which can be used to cycle through ANC mode, Ambient Sound mode or turning the features off completely. The touch controls can also be used to play music, pause or skip tracks, as well as taking phone calls. Call quality with the built-in microphones in each earbud is surprisingly good and the mics are also be used for giving commands to Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri and sampling the noise that the earphones will cancel.
The active noise-cancellation feature of the Lavanda Lune works reasonably well due to using the latest hybrid method of noise cancelation. However, like so many true wireless earbuds with ANC, the Lavanda Lune can’t compete with the efficiency of a pair of noise-canceling over-the-ear headphones or a pair of top-flight earphones like the superb Jabra Elite 85t. Even so, the Lune’s ANC does help to cut repetitive noises like road noise or the roar of aircraft engines; plus it’s better than not having any ANC.
The Lavanda Lune are fitted with an Airoha 1552A chip that uses Bluetooth 5.0 and support both SBC and AAC audio codecs. There’s no support for apt-X or apt-X HD but AAC is good enough for me. The Bluetooth reception is strong and the receiving distance can extend up to 30 meters with a compatible Bluetooth 5.0 streamer.
So far, the Lavanda Lune ticks all the boxes that any good pair of tune wireless earbuds should tick, but features count for little if the sound is only mediocre. Lavanda’s engineers have tuned the Lune earphones to produce a meaty bass which is what a lot of consumers want these days, especially when listening to pop and hip-hop. It’s not a ridiculously woolly bass but it’s sufficiently warm and well-articulated.
There’s no way the sound of these earbuds could be described as neutral or having a flat response, but thanks to 9.2mm dynamic drivers, the Lavanda Lune can pump out plenty of volume and I enjoyed the sound a lot. The upper midrange did feel slightly pinched and compressed in places, but these earbuds sound as good as some models costing twice the price and even a bit more. They will suit any music with a strong rhythm or big bassline.
Verdict: The Lavanda Lune ANC true wireless earbuds sound more than acceptable. They have great water-resistance rating as well as good battery life. The ANC function is acceptable, but it won’t win any awards. Even so, the ANC is still worth having. The Lavanda Lune deliver great sound and have most of the features you’d want from a pair of ANC true wireless earbuds and they are priced sensibly.
