Today I have a very interesting model of wireless earbuds on my review – these are 20 DECEBEL DualRad with active noise cancelling.
I am the first to test this model and for me, it was something mysterious. When I ordered the earbuds, I wanted to test them as soon as possible and find out whether they are worth their attention or not. After a few days of use, I will talk about my impressions in the conclusions.
I also ordered 20 DECEBEL DualRad for my money and the price tag at the time of purchase was $100. Therefore, for me, it was a significant risk when you do not know anything about the manufacturer.
The main features of wireless earbuds, I can attribute – the presence of active noise cancelling. Based on this, the price tag for earbuds is so high. The earbuds also received a 9 mm dynamic driver, up to 8 hours of battery life, and IPX4 standard water protection.
Will the new TWS earbud model surprise me? Will it be the next flagship, let’s find out in the full review below.

The earbuds come in a simple white box with small dimensions. The box is made of durable cardboard and at first glance, the earbuds do not look budget.
The front side of the box has an earbud drawing with the name of the model, and the backside received a list of technical features. For example, here you can find the version of the wireless connection, the codecs used, and other specs.
Inside the box, I am greeted by a set of various documentation, earbuds, and a charging box are located a little lower. Also in the box is a Type-C charging cable and a set of six different silicone ear tips.
In general, the equipment is very solid and there is everything necessary for the full use of earbuds.
The appearance of the TWS earbuds turned out to be quite interesting. It has a number of exciting solutions that are rarely found on other brands.
But before telling about them, I want to share with you the build quality and materials used.
20 DECEBEL DualRad is made of matte plastic, which is quite durable and practical. It does not leave fingerprints and is more durable than glossy plastic. The build quality is at a high level, each gap is accurate and I did not find any extraneous creaks while listening to music.
Each earbud weighs 5 grams, so in terms of convenience, they are very comfortable. I could listen to music for 2-3 hours and my ears did not feel tired. Also during sports, the earbuds sat tight in my ears and did not fall out.
As I already mentioned, 20 DECEBEL DualRad got to splash and sweat protection according to the IPX4 standard. Therefore, they are afraid to get the earbuds in the rain or do not play sports.
The front side of the earbuds received an interesting iridescent LED pattern that lights up in red or blue. There is also a touch control panel at the bottom of the microphone hole.
The inside of the earbud has two pins for charging. On the side, you can see the channel designation – the right or left earbud.
The charging box has received a very compact size and weighs about 35 grams box, without earbuds. Therefore, putting the box in your jeans pocket is not difficult.
Usually, on the cover, you can see the logo or company designation, but the model 20 DECEBEL has nothing. Also, the box is made of the same material as the earbuds – matte plastic.
The lid received a magnetic mount and it does not play in the open position.
On the front side of the charging box, there are four LED indicators that indicate the charge level, and on the reverse side, there is a Type-C connection.
Well, we figured out the design, now let’s talk about the quality of communication.
Connection and Control
The new 20 DECEBEL DualRad TWS earbud model received a standard Bluetooth wireless connection with version 5.0. The manufacturer promises AAC and SBC codecs, but nothing is said about the presence of aptX.
The first connection is pretty standard and simple. Therefore, I will not stop here. But I want to note that the quality of communication even at a distance of 10 meters from the source is very stable.
If we talk about delays, they are minimal, and sometimes they are difficult to notice when playing games or watching videos on YouTube.
In terms of touch control, there are all the necessary functions except volume control.
- One-touch on the right earbud – play, pause, accept or hang up, and on the left earbud – switching modes – activated ANC mode and standard mode.
- Double-tap – switch tracks back and forth, depending on the channel of the earbuds.
- Holding for 2 seconds activates the voice assistant.
Each 20 DECEBEL DualRad is equipped with a 9 mm dynamic driver that produces a very strong volume.
For example, if you listen to music at 100% volume, then your ears will be very sick. Even at a 50% volume level, music will play loudly, like regular budget earbuds at 100% volume.
The sound quality is pretty good, there is a decent bass, which is present at low frequencies. It is not very deep, so the mid and high frequencies have good detail.
Active noise cancellation ANC plays a significant role. It drowns out extraneous noise up to 30 dB, so the sounds of ambient noise will not stop you from listening to your favorite tracks.
If we compare the ANC performance of the 20 DECEBEL DualRad and Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds, the quality of active noise cancelling is at the same level.
If we talk about the quality of the microphone, then it is not bad, if we speak in quiet places. But in a noisy place, the interlocutor will not hear you so clearly.
Another positive side of the 20 DECEBEL DualRad was battery life. Each earbud uses a 50 mAh battery capacity, which can play for about 8 hours with the ANC mode turned off. If you constantly use the ANC mode, then the battery life will be reduced to 5 hours.
The charging box received 360 mAh battery capacity and the total battery life will be about 24 hours.
The charging box uses a Type-C connection and the charging time is about 1.5 hours.
Conclusion and Reviews
20 DECEBEL DualRad – these are real gaming earbuds that got an interesting appearance, good build quality, and good sound.
In addition, the new model has a number of other advantages. For example, this is the Airoha 155X chipset, 9 mm dynamic driver, high battery life, and the perfect combination of sound quality and active noise cancelling.
But it could not do without minuses, the DualRad model did not receive a volume control function and, as for an unknown brand, the price is a little too high.
