One word to describe Soundpeats latest earbuds is BASS.
My issue with earbuds in general has always been the lack of bass compared headsets on the market. This time Soundpeats has given us something special, Absolutely clear sounding bass.
The design of the case has been updated giving us a oval mate black finish case. The earbuds themselves follow Apples air pods design and feel very comfortable when worn and are very slick.
They come with the signature 6 extra ear tips to cater to every induvial needs and charger cable.
The audio is not as crisp as the Truengine however these by far out perform every other earbuds in terms on a bass punch.
Pros: Strongest bass of all the earbuds currently on offer Very affordable at $40 AUD 8 Changeable earpieces 24hrs batterylife with case charge, 3hrs play time per charge New design, very comfortable
Cons: Audio is not as great as the Truengine
Overall: Great set of earbuds for your collection. These pack a powerful bass punch compared to all other products our there. The look amazing on and will turn heads. I recommend these for these for those wanting true bass feel.
I've been looking to buy in ear Bluetooth earphones for some time. Previously I've used the following Bluetooth earphones/headphones
Sony MDR-AS700BT - Behind the neck headphones Plantronics Explorer 500 Mobile Bluetooth Headset (single ear)
I'm no audiophile. My needs were purely in ear earphones that are not expensive, uncomfortable, quality (build and audio), footprint and have good batterylife.
Pricing is always an issue as you see some brands well over $200. I've always thought if they are worth it or not. That much for a product that can be easily lost, broken, eventually stop working due to batterylife, etc, etc. On the other end of the scale, if you go cheap, you get what you pay for. There are so many cheap alternatives. I cam across SoundPeats on a bargain website where they were mentioned as great bang for buck. At just under $50 Australian, I decided to give this new model a try.
In terms of comfort, I can't really fault these. They sit in comfortably and hold well.
Build quality is top notch, which I was not expecting. Both the earphones themselves and the charging capsule. Again, nothing to fault.
Audio quality wise, I used these on a Sony Xperia XZ2, Samsung Galaxy S10e, Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and a Sony PS Vita (First model). The quality of the audio overall is great. Good enough bass and treble across all devices. Volume is always an issue with phones. I notice the volume doesn't go as loud as it would on wired headsets. But this seems to be an issue with phones themselves. Using these on My Sony PS Vita, the volume on high was quite loud. I had to turn it down a notch. But even on the phones, it's enough for MP3's, YouTube and Netflix.
While I never bought these for calls, they work as you would expect with most bluetooth headsets. They do the job, but the quality is not as good as use the phone itself with no headset. This is the same case for the Plantronics headset I have.
I was surprised at the size of the charging case/dock. Easily fits in my pants pockets, even with my phone in the same pocket.
Batterylife, my biggest gripe with non wired earphones/headphones. Always have to remember to charge and the worry that you run out of battery at an inconvenient time. I can't really give you a full assessment of the batterylife, but what can I say, i'm surprised how well they hold. Seeing that the case is small and have no issues carrying it with me, I have no issue with batterylife. With he case, I've gone 3 days with regular use and have not worried about batterylife. Again, I don't really have a full assessment, but you won't always have to be worried about batterylife with these.
At the price I paid for these, you literally cannot fault these. They would easily compare well against models that go for well over $200.
I have been using apple products for a while but I love buying other brands to compare to because its fascinating how these headphones compare to them in terms of pricing alone. I have a few different types of earphones from different companies and here's my verdict. Compared to the original airpods (which didn't fit well in my ears), these were the perfect replacement I was looking for. 1. the sound quality is fantastic - maybe they just fit better but because they seal well, theres a good amount of bass 2. the in ear design makes them stay in my ear better 3. batterylife is outstanding.. i use them for a whole week with on and off use and they last me just fine 4. the touch gestures are very friendly and easy to get used to 5. connecting to them was super simple 6. the case is perfect size for my pockets.
These true wireless earbuds come in an understated black color theme and overall design aesthetic, fitting snugly in your ear, without much protruding. An added bonus is the small form factor magnetic charging case, easily enough to slip into a pocket here and there. The charging case can recharge the earbuds about twice or thrice, which provides a welcome boost in power throughout the day when you're not listening, although alone they have an adequate 3 or 4-hour batterylife.
Sound quality is definitely one of the best given the price that these earbuds ask for, comparable to the applauded MI Piston 3s. Sound was mostly smooth throughout the entire profile, with only slight distortion at the highs, although it was a bit too bass-heavy for my liking. However, songs still sounded excellent on these earbuds.
Comfort and user operability was the only weaker point of these otherwise flawless earbuds. Although comfort varies from person to person, the angle of these earbuds just didn't sit too well in my ear canals, no matter which tip was used. User controls were also somewhat confusing initially, especially when switching from Stereo to Mono and back. Another note to make would be that operation involves pressing a button on the earbuds, which push them further into your ear canal, which is a slight annoyance. Media control includes Play/Pause, Next, and Previous, but there is no volume adjustment, and each earbud is mapped to only either Next/Previous, which means that with one earbud in, you can't move back and forth between songs.
Connectivity with these earbuds was relatively painless, with Bluetooth 5.0 and connecting fast enough to my devices. However, as mentioned before, toggling between Mono and Stereo was a bit of a pain, and sometimes they suffer dropout, with the left earbud losing connection.
Build quality is a bit plasticky and flimsy, but there is an ample amount of sweat-resistance, which is an advantage.
All in all, these earbuds were an excellent purchase, and is definitely the best in this price range, as well as maybe even higher. I use these as my go-to workout earbuds, due to its wireless connectivity (over my Bose Soundsport) as well as sometimes for my daily commute when I don't want to lug my headphones around. Would recommend.
The Good: -Epic sound for price -Great bluetooth -Great batterylife -Portable charging case -Solid, sweat resistant build
The Bad: -Toggling between Mono and Stereo is too hard -Didn't fit too well -Full media controls require both earbuds, no volume adjustment
Great fit and quality for the price! The batterylife is quite long lasting me just under 4 hours on a single charge. Autopairing and set up were simple and once you get used to the controls it's really convenient. I got a pair of the Dudios Zeus Air and I feel this particular Soundpeat truly wireless earbud model has a much fit to it. I wanted to get another pair since the wife wanted the one I already purchased but they are currently unavailable, but will definitely keep my eyes open for it.
These can't compare with the Samsung's, Sony's etc but at their price point they're good average earbuds that do their job.
Sound quality is fine for the average user, the bass at times is highly exaggerated and doesn't sound "clean'. Other than that, music sounds fine. I use these mostly to play white noise when walking/working and they do an OK in blocking out outside sound sufficiently so you can concentrate.
You'll notice audio lag if you're using them to listen to YouTube, Netflix etc but that's expected.
Batterylife is as advertised and the charging case is small and easy to carry in pockets.
Pros: 1. Great sound with good sound isolation. 2. No issues with mic. Can definitely live with it. 3. Pretty good batterylife. 4. Fast pairing with very little drop outs.
Cons: 1. It can't be connected to two devices at the same time and hence switching between 2 devices is a bit of a pain, you have to turn of the Bluetooth of the device to which the true capsule is connected to and then connect to another device. Would've prefered if there was some way to disconnect from a device using the true capsule earphones or case. 2. The right earpiece has a white light that blinks at regular intervals (every 7 seconds) when in use and a constant white light when paired but not in use. It's really annoying because people will definitely notice you for wearing a "flashy" little piece in your ear in dark environment. I'm probably gonna seal the light with some pen or tape. 3. The case lid is very difficult to open with one hand, I haven't succeeded yet and it feels a bit flimsy when it's open. 4. Would've looked more sleeker if it didn't have soundpeats written along the length of the earpiece. Instead maybe have a logo? 5. Micro USB - last in the list of con because I shouldn't be complaining about this at this price point. But I would've definitely preferred a type C port.
My complaints above, except for the blinking light are maybe demanding a lot extra at this price point. Overall I am pretty happy with the purchase. If you are looking for a decent pair of cheap earphones or trying out the wireless experience, this is one of the best.
USE AS A MOBILE PHONE HEADSET I bought these as a headset for my LG G6 mobile phone for the numerous conference calls in which I participate with it, to spare my arm. I've had a handful of conversations so far with these and no complaint about sound quality. I can also hear the callers perfectly. So far a big tick as a phone headset.
COMFORT What surprised me the most was how well they stay in my ears. For some reason, I've never had good experiences with earbud style headphones. They either just don't stay put no matter what types and sizes of tips I use or they hurt like hell after a short amount of use. I tried using these to listen to music while I work and to my surprise, they work really well. I've been wearing them for hours at a time without any discomfort and they stay put! They offer good sound isolation in our open plan office, so much so that people literally have to stand a metre away and grab my attention. They've now replaced my Bose QC25 headphones for use in the office so I no longer have to mess with the cord.
SOUND QUALITY The sound quality was another surprise. I listen to classic music while working and sound quality is very decent. Absolutely punch above their weight for the price paid. They also pack decent bass on the few dance tracks I tried to listen to as a test. Perhaps lacking a bit of crispness but again, these are sub $50 phones. Hard to beat in the price range. A great allrounder, I'd say.
BATTERYLIFE I've not done an exhaustive test of the batterylife. I've been using them 10 hours a day for the last few days, popping them back in their case when I leave my desk or go out for lunch. That seems to have recharged them enough for me to continue using them all day. That satisfies my use, so not much more I can say.
CONCLUSION These budget earphones have exceeded my expectations on all fronts. They work great as a mobile headset and listening to music while at work in all-day comfort, both with very decent sound quality for the price range. My final test will be in the gym to see if they stay put and survive the sweatfest. I'll update once I get a chance to try them there.
If your use cases are like mine, you won't be disappointed. Well worth the money paid. So much so, my wife wants a pair too now.
I've not had them long, but considering the price ($32) with deal of the day, I wasn't sure what to expect. Took the risk based on reviews and some of the features like the case to extend batterylife, design for fit so I could wear them when active and not end up ripping cables and earphones from my ears when doing activities or exercise. I have bought expensive store recommended brands before but I couldn't get them to stay in my ears so the money was completely wasted. Tried to offer them to my partner, but he had similar issues with other well known brands. I gave this set to him to try and we both found they didn't fall out as the other had which was a relief. It is not the loudest sound, and there is a bit of a hiss during instruments or lulls in songs but I can ignore it most of the time. I can't speak about longevity because I've only had them a few days but so far so good. They have a year warranty, so the concerns a couple of people had about life span should be covered for a year. For the price it seems a reasonable risk to take. The case is slim and easy to pop in a pocket or bag. A little drawback that I didn't read before I bought them was that it requires no greater than 1A for charging. I had to hunt around in drawers for old tech as most devices use greater. I was lucky to find a really old powerbank that only goes to 1A and has a micro usb so I could charge the case. Without it, I would have been stuck. My partner thought he might get a set as a back up alternative for short trips when he doesn't want to take his huge and expensive over ear headphones so when in stock I'll grab a second. I also bought the SoundPEATS Q30 that has a longer batterylife (but no charge case). with a small cable that sits around the neck and had magnetic backs on the earphones that are handy for jobs that need you to take them on and off without losing them or having them get tangled like wired headphones. I think between the two, these TrueWirless Earbuds V5.0 are the more comfortable and less likely to fall out and perhaps slightly clearer sound, but both seem reasonably good for the price. The Q30 has a nice little carry case and accessories. Both models connected to blutooth without any issues at all.
They have longer batterylife, and crisper clearer sound than the four others I’ve tried at this price point. I really like them. The only reason holding me back from a 5 rating is three little things (1) the shape makes them very fiddly to remove from the charging case and I worry about dropping them somewhere awkward to recover (train platform etc). (2) they lack a little deep base (although they sound very crisp and clear). (3) although the lack of physical buttons is an advantage in sone regards they very fiddly to pause, power down etc. All in all though they better than others in this price point and i would buy them again.
