Design and Build Quality
Beginning with the design, the Noise Shots Groove has a recognizable design that resembles a round box. All out weight of the case with the earbuds are around 55 grams, and the earbuds weigh approximately 5 grams.
Indeed, the case is made of plastic, and it offers a matte completion, so it doesn’t attract fingerprints or scratches effectively, yet it attracts dust effectively since it is black. Since it is compact, you can undoubtedly carry it in your pocket without any problem. The earbuds have LED lights that shine in blue and red colors.
There are touch controls on both the earbuds that allow you to play or pause music, go to the previous or next song, launch voice assistant, accept or reject calls, and control the volume. These controls are somewhat unique from other Noise headsets. Look at them beneath.

Since it has in-ear buds, these fit your ears firmly and don’t fall off effectively during exercises, workouts, or in any event, even while running. One needs to choose the right arrangement of buds to suit your ears, so they are comfortable. Since it accompanies IPX5 ratings, it can withstand sweat and light rain, yet you can utilize it in the shower or swim wearing it.
Coming to the audio quality, these earbuds offer genuinely excellent audio quality at a cost. Volume is great, too, and the bass is fair because of the 6mm drivers. The importance of the headset is loud enough, except if you are in a jam-packed environment. The earbuds offer a significant amount of passive noise isolation too. It supports a top-notch AAC sound codec, so when you empower this in the Bluetooth settings, audio quality is somewhat better. In general, the audio quality is better than expected in many conditions.
The headset has a tiny microphone which is decent, yet at some point, it struggles to get your voice clearly for calls, particularly in a crowded and noisy environment. This is common for most Bluetooth headsets in the price range since the tiny microphone doesn’t get your voice.
Connectivity, Pairing and AI assistant
The Bluetooth headset upholds Bluetooth 5.0, so you can connect it to Android, iOS devices along with MP3 players with Bluetooth support. It pairs to your phone immediately when you eliminate them from the case, and the LED lights in the headset flicker blue. It shows both the left and right earphones, and when you pair the right, the left one automatically connects with it. After the left earphone connects, you hear ‘pairing,’ and the LED indicator flashes on the right earphone. It would help if you chose the Noise Shots Groove from the Bluetooth menu on the phone to pair the earphones. You get voice input when it enters pairing mode and when it connects effectively.
The Noise Shots Groove headset doesn’t have a companion app; however, you can launch Siri on iOS and Google Assistant on Android devices when you press and hold the right or left earbuds thrice when no music is playing.
The Noise Shots Groove promises as long as 5 hours of battery life on a single charge, and we figured out how to get more than 4 hours of battery life on a single charge when tuning in about 80% volume, which is good. The headset automatically turns off when it’s not being used for around 5 minutes. You can long-press either headset to turn them on or off, so it’s not necessary to carry the case with you.
The Noise Shots Groove case has a 300mAh battery that guarantees two more charges or extra 10 hours of battery life, so you get a total of 15 hours of battery life, which is decent in the price range. If you have Android phones running Android 8.1 or later, you can see the battery life of the Bluetooth headset. It gives audio prompts to charge the headset when the headset has a low battery. Charging the headset requires around two hours, and charging the case from 0 to 100% requires around one and half hours utilizing a 5V-1A charger via USB Type-C port. There are four LED indicators working on this issue that shows the battery remaining.
It is priced at Rs. 2999, the Noise Shots Groove is a decent compact Bluetooth headset with excellent audio quality, decent battery life, and IPX5 ratings for water resistance. It is available on online shopping platforms and gonoise.com.
