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 pricerange, 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 price point) 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 pricerange, 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 wireless earpods are one of the best earpods in it's pricerange and probably beats some premium Bluetooth earphones in the market.
Doesn't take more than 30 seconds from unboxing and get it connects to your mobile. Bluetooth connection very stable. No drop outs when you turn head side to side, where I had experience previous with different brand of wireless pods.
Earpods sits quite well in the ears, doesn't seem be able to fall out easily even with excessive movement.
Overall sound quality is good, but definitely not one of the best out there. Bass seems to be a little too much for my liking.
I would definitely recommend who is looking for a pair of wireless earpods and not having to burn a hole in their pocket.
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 pricerange. A great allrounder, I'd say.
BATTERY LIFE I've not done an exhaustive test of the battery life. 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 pricerange. 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.
The price is exceptional, I paid AUD $32 on prime day and got it delivered the next day.
I am a bass person so I like a lot of bass and these buds do deliver that. As far as the sound quality is concerned, it is very balanced, I'm not an audiophile but the clarity is quite good. In this pricerange, you won't find good sounding earbuds.
I was also blown away by the TOUCH controls on this, they're quite sensitive and were 99.5% responsive. Call quality is also very good, the person was able to hear my voice clearly without any distortion, but this can depend on your location, network and other factors.
Comfort was very good too, I had no troubles after wearing them for about an hour in the gym, as these were a replacement for my over-ear headphones. Even whilst running they remained intact. Although, sometimes I felt the urge to 'itch'.
Overall, it's a worthy purchase, highly recommend.
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 are genuinely great earbuds, and for the price you can't get anywhere near this level of sound quality elsewhere. I can't recommend them enough. As other reviewers have said, the bass is excellent as is the audio quality in general.
Setup was a breeze, I removed them from the case and paired them with my phone within 30 seconds. They sit well within the ear and I never felt like one was going to fall out. Bluetooth connection is quite stable, tested range is impressive.
Would happily recommend these to family and friends, well worth the money.
Damn impressive for $40. Sound quality isn't going to win awards especially the mid range but it's more than acceptable and for the price it's excellent. Pros: Great fit in my ears, very light. Bluetooth connected instantly and seamlessly. Cons: Some elements of the construction feel a bit light - I worry that the hinge on the case might snap within the year but it may turn out to be a non-issue.
Pros- Easy to set up connects instantly once set up last fairly long great value for money fits very well on ear (snug) Cons- Causes very minor discomfort if worn for extended periods (maybe my ears) Sometimes you have manually connect it but its rare
