I usually don’t write reviews on purchases but these True Wireless headphones blew me away for the price of AUD$42.99 so I thought Id share my experience.
I’ve been using my trusty Soundpeats Q30 Plus Bluetooth wired headphones for the past year and a half which are also amazing headphones as well and are still going strong, but I wanted to try a pair of truly wireless headphones while training.
Being an in ear earphone kind of guy I was looking at a number of in ear bluetooth wireless earphones, besides the Apple Earpods which I’m not a fan of.
After much researching I narrowed it down to two. A competitors in a similar price range, and the Soundpeats True Wireless.
The reviews I read about the competitors was they weren’t loud enough and didn’t push out enough bass, so I decided to go for these Soundpeats.
I was a little bit apprehensive if they’d compete with my Q30 Plus Bluetooth wired headphones or if they’d sound good, but geez these headphones proved me wrong.
These earphones are loud and sound terrific for the price they’re sold at.
Listening to something like the Red Hot Chili Peppers you get lots of bass, lots of mids and lots of highs. There’s also a lot going on in their music and these headphones can handle it all perfectly audio wise.
The main thing that I would like to point out is that you need to experiment with the silicone ear tips to get the right fit and right sounds. The small and medium were too small for my ears and the audio didn’t sound great but when I swapped over the large ear tips this is where the headphones formed a proper seal in my ear and delivered great sound.
Now that I spoken about the audio quality, the headphone build and design are also great.
From the attached pics the headphones come in a small chargingcase which the headphones snap back into with the help of magnetics. When they’re back in the case they turn off and start charging. Cool. The chargingcase also has four small white LED’s which tell you the remaining charge and charges via a micro usb cable.
In terms of wearing these headphones and comfort, this is also where they also excel.
I’ve been worried that they would feel uncomfortable and fall out but this has never happened.
With everyday wear they sit snugly in your ear and don’t move at all. They fit really well and you barely notice that they’re there. Even at the gym with them in running on the treadmill, using an elliptical and weights these earphones just stay in and pump out motivational tunes.
All in all these are awesome wireless bluetooth headphones for the price.
I definitely recommend for headphones for the features, audio quality, fit / comfort, and the price.
The only issues I’d say I have with these is they don’t have volume control on the earphones, but that’s not a big deal as I control the audio via my Apple Watch or my iPhone. But looking at all the other similar headphones they don’t have this function either.
Do yourself a favour and buy these headphones, you won’t regret it.
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 battery life with casecharge, 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 battery life.
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 battery life, 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 chargingcase/dock. Easily fits in my pants pockets, even with my phone in the same pocket.
Battery life, 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 battery life, 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 battery life. With he case, I've gone 3 days with regular use and have not worried about battery life. Again, I don't really have a full assessment, but you won't always have to be worried about battery life 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 was impressed with the presentation and looks of both the chargingcase and the earphones; for the price they feel like a decent quality item.
Pairing to my iPhone was very simple and easy.
Phone call quality is a hit and miss. Works well indoors but doesn't work well in noisy areas.
Sound using the youtube app on my iPhone was as expected, it will not blow you away but there is a low frequency presence and depending on the track you will get a small rumble in your ears at higher volume. In general the sound is perfectly fine for what you are paying.
The max volume on these earphones may not be as high as some people like, for me though it was perfectly acceptable and max volume will have you not hearing anything else. My preference is to have this set at a low volume level so I can hear if someone is saying something to me during training.
The earphones fit securely into my ear and they did not fall out during heavy bag work or skipping.
The earphones survived the vast quantities of sweat during training.
After owning new Galaxy Buds and then losing both of them, I was hooked on the idea of wireless ear buds. However, after my recent track record I wasn't prepared to spend $150+ on more Galaxy Buds, so I started researching TWS and found the Soundpeats TrueCapsule buds to standout from others. I liked how they look, v5 bluetooth and they rated very well for sound quality.
The Good: Sound Touch/tap controls Astetics In ear feel - very close to Galaxy Buds feel Stability in ear is great Bluetooth range - v5
Not so Good: (but acceptable at this price point) Chargecase lid kind of fiddly to open Micro USB (no USB-C) Chargecase feels flimsy Both Earbuds have a white flashing light - a little annoying for partner while listening in dark in bed. Volume does not good really loud. But also a good thing to avoid hearing damage.. However volume goes high enough. Only IPX5 water rating Can only use right bud on its own. Phone call clarity for caller no great, but not bad either.
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 chargingcase, easily enough to slip into a pocket here and there. The chargingcase 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 battery life.
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 battery life -Portable chargingcase -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
Have had my sound peats wireless ear buds for a week now. They are not as good as expected and as reviewed. The sound is not bad compared to my other ear buds of the same price, but 1) I find that they are difficult to take out of the charging/storage case. 2) they don't play concurrently. They are both coming up as paired but sound only comes out from one earbud at a time. This happens on my mobile as well as my ipad. I have followed instructions as per the video clip on the page and the leaflet provided with in the box that the earbuds arrived in, but it still doesn’t pair together.
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.
Battery life is as advertised and the chargingcase is small and easy to carry in pockets.
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 battery life, 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 battery life (but no chargecase). 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 battery life, 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 chargingcase 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.
