True Freedom in All You Do
Having a confidence-inspiring secure fit is important. The COWON CX5 features non-slip ear hooks that allows you to rejoice in total freedom in all situations.

High-Sensitivity Ceramic Antenna and Cutting-Edge REALTEK Chip For Uninterrupted Sound Even on the Move.
The embedded high-sensitivity ceramic antenna provides a powerful, stable wireless connection between not only the left and right earphones but the Bluetooth device as well. There is no interruption when on the move, whether on a subway or bus, and seamless sound is maintained in open spaces for up to 40 meters. In addition, with the latest REALTEK chip, you can experience excellent quality Bluetooth earphones with many advantages such as low power support, high sensitivity reception and stable data transmission.

An Unprecedented 72 Hours of Playback Time
Thanks to the efficiency of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) supported in the Realtek audio chip and COWON’s proprietary low-energy circuit design, the CX5 boasts a playback time that is longer than ever before. The charging cradle is capable of charging both earphones three to four times without the need to plug in, and the cradle and earphones can be fast-charged together in about one hour.

Powerful High-Quality Stereo Sound without Wires
Enjoy a detailed, balanced stereo sound through perfectly separated left and right channels and precision-balanced tuning. Feel the sensation of wireless sound that is superior to wired earphones through high-quality audio brought to you by COWON’s advanced technologies.

Call Audio in Both Left and Right Channels
When in dual-channel mode, most wireless Bluetooth earphones only output audio through a single channel for voice calls. The COWON CX5 outputs call audio in both channels so that, if needed, you can bring the microphone of the left earphone closer to your mouth. You can now send the clearest voice possible even when making calls in noisy environments or public places.

When using Dual Mode, the sound can be heard from both left and right earphones during calls. Mic only operates on left earphone so make sure to put the left earphone near your mouth during calls. In Single Mode, each earphone will output sound with both microphones enabled for use.

Bluetooth 5.0 for a Faster, Farther Wireless Connection
Bluetooth 5.0 is twice as fast as the previous iteration and offers four times the range and eight times the data bandwidth. The double transmission speed reduces transmission time and battery consumption, and quadruple range allows seamless connections up to 40 meters in low-power mode. Relish in the joy of wireless with the improved performance of Bluetooth 5.0.

Clear Hands-Free Call Quality via Dual Microphones & Noise Reduction Technology
Because each earphone is equipped with its own microphone, calls can be made through either earphone when using Single Mode. The COWON CX5 delivers crisp, noise-free call audio by eliminating ambient sounds, including wind noise, through dual high-sensitivity microphones and Real Clear Voice (RCV) technology.

Stay Safe and Aware of Your Surroundings in Single Mode
The COWON CX5 earphones can be used in Single Mode in which each earphone operates independently. You can use your earphones in a safer manner by using just one earphone and to avoid potentially-dangerous situations while driving or walking having external sounds completely blocked out.

Dual Mode and Single Mode for Listening Freedom
The COWON CX5 earphones can be used in Dual or Single Modes in which the earphones are used at the same time or independently, respectively. With the COWON CX5, you can freely choose between Dual Mode for listening to music or Single Mode for listening to podcasts or audiobooks. * The left and right earphones are detected separately, making Bluetooth connections with your audio device more convenient. ( CX5 Bluetooth L , CX5 Bluetooth R )

Seamless Automation
Simply remove the earphones and plug them into your ears. COWON CX5 will take care of the rest. Simply remove the COWON CX5 earphones from the cradle, and everything is taken care of seamlessly from powering on to device pairing and L/R earphone connection. To turn off the power or recharge the earphones, just place them back in the charging cradle. Everything from powering on to pairing is automated just by removing and plugging the earphones from and to the charging cradle. * Auto-pairing is available once the initial device pairing has been completed.

Carrying, Charging, and Storage All in One Portable Magnetic Charging Cradle
The magnetic charging cradle uses magnets to prevent the unintentional loss of your earphones. When storing the earphones, simply place the earphones near the cradle to magnetically install them in the correct orientation and begin recharging automatically. * Be sure to insert the earphones properly into the grooves of the charging cradle. * Please charge the charging cradle periodically. When the cradle battery is discharged, the earphone units may turn-on instead of being charged, causing the earphone to be discharged.

Two Sets of Non-Slip Silicone Covers and Three Sets of Ear Tips for a Perfect Fit
Included with the COWON CX5 are standard hookless silicone covers for most users, as well as hooked silicone covers for those who want added security when finding their perfect fit. Find your perfect fit using a combination of the two sets of non-slip silicone covers and three sets of ear tips provided.

IPX4 Waterproof Robust Water Resistance from Moisture and Sweat
Certified with an IPX4 water resistance rating, the COWON CX5 earphones are suitable for not only outdoor activities with snow and rain but sports activities involving sweat and moisture. * Based on alternating playback and recharging in Single Mode. Performance may vary depending on actual usage environment.

A Modern, Minimalist Design Suited to All Settings
The COWON CX5’s clean, restrained, and modern minimalist design is the perfect match for any lifestyle. Feather-Light Bluetooth Earphones at Just 5 GramsThe COWON CX5 earphones weigh merely five grams per unit, light enough to feel as if they are not being worn. The charging cradle is also very light at only 36 grams, which means that the cradle and earphones are highly portable at a combined weight of less than 50 grams.

One Button to Control Them All, One Button Operation
All earphone controls are available via a single button. The convenient multi-function button handles various functions such as power on/off, Bluetooth pairing, music playback, and calls.

One-Press Smart Speech Recognition | Google / Siri Activation
To use a speech recognition feature such as Google Assistant or Siri, press and hold the left earphone button for one second. Smart speech recognition is just at the tip of your fingertips. Press and hold the multi-function button for 1 second to launch the voice recognition feature of your smartphone or tablet.

Why buy from us?

Rapallo is an independently owned New Zealand company and with more than 15 years experience, we offer you both technical expertise and superior service.

Rapallo is fully authorized to sell products by all of the manufacturers listed on our website and in our store. In most cases we are more than a reseller, we are a direct dealer who also receives training and where possible we personally test products we sell.

Authorized dealers like us offer peace of mind. Rapallo

  • often receives training directly from manufacturer representatives and shares that expertise with you.
  • provides  support for all the products they sell.
  • ensures that manufacturer warranties will be honoured.
  • buys directly from big brand manufacturers and guarantee you buy NZ new, (no grey imports or parallel imports).

The Internet is an incredibly convenient information source and a wonderful way to find savings on the products you want. Protect yourself online by buying from authorized dealers, with genuine feedback and reputations.

A price too good to be true, usually is.
If you’ve ever searched for a product on a shopping engine (such as Priceme/Pricespy) you may have asked yourself, “Why are some stores charging so much less than other stores?”

Our customers often share these stories with us, so we thought we would share a few with you, in hopes that you don’t fall prey to any of these unscrupulous sales tactics.

  • Goods may be grey market/parallel imported. They may state that the product includes the manufacturer warranty, but not tell you that the warranty is valid only in Europe, Japan, or South America, and NOT in NZ.
  • You may be asked to buy an expensive extended warranty. In many cases if you do not purchase the warranty, your purchase will be denied. (The product is now out of stock, your card does not go through, etc.)
  • Included parts may be sold to you separately. Some resellers will open boxes and charge extra for parts that are normally included by the manufacturer.
  • Hidden charges which don’t show up until your credit card statement arrives, these charges only show up when your credit card statement is sent to you.
  • When something goes wrong, faulty, late delivery, doesn’t matter how many times you try to email, they don’t get back.
  • There are so many scamming online sellers today, “buyer beware” protect yourself!

Think you have a better price from someone in NZ (authorised dealer)? Call us, we’ll see what we can do.

Concerned About Fraud?

The internet has become a more popular source for online shopping, regrettably we have seen more and more instances of fraud affecting online shoppers. Companies trading under many  different names, loading warranties and charging for them as extras when often they are included from the manufacturer. Parallel imports or personal imports where the NZ supplier refuses to repair when things go wrong is often alarming to the unsuspecting purchaser. Inflated freight charges, customs and GST at the border are often forgotten as a buyer is tempted by a lower price. Constantly we hear all these stories, once bitten it’s all to late looking for that refund or replacement. The stories are outrageous at times, customers from Trademe and ebay with no place to turn, time consuming and very frustrating….

So how do you protect yourself from online fraud?

  • Buy from an authorized reseller. If you are at all suspicious, contact the manufacturer directly and ask if a company is authorized to sell their products.
  • Make sure you get a company invoice with GST clearly marked.
  • Make sure you buy from someone who has a phone number and an address on their website, not a P.O.Box number
  • Read customer feedback, you can usually tell if it’s genuine or not.

We hope that you will become our next happy customer. And we promise to offer you superior service before, during and after your purchase.
