Packaging and Accessories


Padmate has a PaMu Z1 Lite in addition to the Z1. Differences between the two are minor, so this review will give you a good idea of the Z1 Lite as well. The product box ships sealed in plastic and is predominantly white. The product name and confirmation of its Bluetooth nature are in the top-left corner, with PaMu clearly as the brand name in iridescent lettering front and center. A few marketing features are at the bottom, with more on the back in multiple languages, too. Company contact information has been put here too, as well as more specific information about the product inside confirming I have the aqua blue version. Padmate is using a two-piece packaging with the lid lifting off to reveal the contents inside.


Things are kept simpler with the earphones inside the charging case that is placed in a cardboard cutout. A notch on the side helps lift it out and access the bottom layer with the accessories. Included paperwork consists of a note on how to use the earphones, reminder to install and use the accompanying mobile app, and user guide going over the various programmed functions on the PaMu Z1. Padmate also provides a soft drawstring pouch to hold the case inside, as well as the customary short USB Type-A to Type-C cable to charge the case.


A smaller cardboard box contains replacement ear tips, which are all silicone with single, relative soft flanges. These come in four sizes (XS/S/M/L), and another set of M-sized tips is pre-installed. The ear-tip bore is oval, so I expect the nozzle on the PaMu Z1 to be oval as well. These are certainly not the best ear tips I have used, and finding replacements with the oval bore won't be easy.
