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 charging case 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 charging case 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.
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 pricepoint) Charge case lid kind of fiddly to open Micro USB (no USB-C) Charge case 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 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 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 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
These can't compare with the Samsung's, Sony's etc but at their pricepoint 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 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 battery life. 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 pricepoint. 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 pricepoint. 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.
They have longer battery life, and crisper clearer sound than the four others I’ve tried at this pricepoint. 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 pricepoint and i would buy them again.
I normally don't leave reviews, but I'm compelled to due to the sheer quality of these earbuds.
Pros: In-ear earbuds - I love in-ear earbuds, so this is a great plus. It blocks out nearly all background noise, so it's great on my daily commute on public transport.
EXTREMELY affordable - at only $40 aud (I got it for $32 on the prime day sale, which is even more insane) it poses a threat to other high-end earbuds
Bass - I love my hip-hop, and I can happily say that all the songs i've listened to so far have not had the bass distorted, which is great.
Comfortable - I was a bit cautious ordering these because they looked very bulky in the images provided and was concerned they would be uncomfortable, but I was worrying for nothing. They feel great, and I was able to listen for around 3hrs before experiencing a little bit of discomfort, but that's normal for me.
Bluetooth - These are my first pair of wireless earbuds, and I don't think I can go back after this. Not having a wire means I can leave my phone in my office or living room while doing errands or jobs so I don't get distracted while still being able to listen to music, and the range has proven very good so far. It also autoconnects to my Huawei P20 running EMUI 9.1, which is something that I was surprised with!
Battery - It says in the product details that it can run for around 4hrs, which is around what i've found. For wireless earbuds at this price, that's honestly fine and the compact charging case provides it with 24hrs of charge.
Touch controls - Don't get me wrong - when it works, it works great. But sadly for some reason mine sometimes just decides to pick and choose when it wants to accept input, which has caused some light frustration, ontop of looking a tad silly poking at something in my ear over and over... lol. Furthermore, there is a bit of a learning curve with the different commands, so I sometimes found myself confused as to what I was doing.
No volume controls - This is extremely nitpicky, but I felt compelled to include it here. It would've been a great addition.
Overall, you would be doing yourself a disservice NOT buying these. I've been using earbuds at this point for close to 10 years and I think I have finally found the 'white whale' I've been looking for. Affordable, great build quality, wireless, excellent sound quality, and comfortable over long uses.
These earphones are honestly amazing. I previously owned the SoundPEATS True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds in-Ear Stereo Bluetooth Headphones Wireless Earphones (Bluetooth 5.0, Built-in Mic, Stereo Calls, Total 35 Hours Playtime), and I thought they were amazing. However I misplaced these so I decided to order these earphones instead as they were around the same price and had such good reviews.
I'm so glad I chose to order these because they are SO much better than any other bluetooth headphones I have tried. The charging is the same as the other SoundPEATS headphones - the case charges the headphones and you barely have to ever charge the case because it holds so much charge, however every other aspect of the headphones is so much better.
The ear piece fits into your ear so much better and it has a noise cancelling effect. The microphone is also drastically better. We tested the microphone with a phone call and on both ends the sound was crisp and clear. The sound from the headphones is insane. With the previous earphones the bass is quite rattly however with these the bass is amazing.
The only slight downside to these headphones is that I find that the multitouch button (to pause/change songs) can be a bit temperamental, sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get it to operate. However that isn't that big of a deal.
Overall I definitely recommend these headphones - especially at this pricepoint.
I wasn't expecting heaps from a $40 set of earbuds, but woowwweee. The sound quality genuinely blew me away with how good it was at such a cheap pricepoint. This is coming from someone who owns and uses a $300 set of headphones. Considering you get true wireless, bluetooth and pretty damn good sound quality for only $40, this is an absolute no regrets buy. The case is very nice, although the lid is a little wobbly, but nothing drastic at all. You can not go wrong with these earbuds in the slightest. The sound quality is lacking a tiny bit in the highs, but they do sound awesome and for $40 it isn't a let down at all.
