Today I have on my review the next budget earbuds called Bluedio Fi, which received quite interesting features.
Currently, you can purchase a new TWS model of Bluedio Fi earbuds at the official store at an attractive price of $33.25.
Even considering its low cost, the earbuds received a big list of features. These include the integrated Qualcomm QCC3020 chipset, support for the aptX codec, touch control, water protection, automatic pause function, 6mm dynamic driver, Type-C charging port, and much more.
In fact, based on the technical specs, the earbuds look modern, but let’s check how things are in practice.
Bluedio Fi: Specifications
|Driver unit:||8mm Dynamic Drivers|
|Bluetooth protocol:||aptX, AAC and SBC|
|Charging Time:||120 min|
The appearance of the box looks very poor but bright. The box is made of transparent plastic, through which you can see the entire package.
On the front of the box is the name of the model and company. On the backside, there are some specifications.
Inside the box, there is a charging box with Bluedio Fi earbuds, several silicone ear tips with different sizes, and a Type-C format charging cable.
Of course, I was glad to see the Type-C cable in the kit, not Micro USB, but the quality of the box itself wants to be the best. Although the device reached me without any damage.
Bluedio Fi – got a typical appearance like most budget TWS earbuds. The quality of the plastic, although not the highest, is made of matt material, which is already not bad.
As my experience showed, glossy plastic after several weeks of use not only leaves fingerprints but also scratches as well.
In terms of wearing comfort, the Bluedio Fi sits well in my ear canal. They do not fall out and you can calmly go in for sports in them.
Here you can find protection against the water of the IPX6 standard, so sweat and rain should not be avoided, but you can not completely wet it.
The external part of the Bluedio Fi earbuds received touch control, an LED operation indicator, and a microphone hole. Also here you can see the name of the channel – right or left. Although the location is quite unusual for most TWS earbuds.
The inner side received only the contacts for charging, and the sound guide has the correct angle with a protective mesh on the base.
If the earbud design is very standard for budget TWS earbuds, then the appearance of the charging box stands out from the crowd.
The whole body is made of plastic, only the upper part is very similar to chrome, and the lower part is machined aluminum. The box looks very interesting and I also want to note about the unusual LED indicator. It is made of the designation Fi, which actually speaks of the name of the model.
The LED lights up in white during normal use and reports the level of remaining charge, and during charging in red.
The lid got a magnetic connection and during the opening of strong backlash, I did not find. Also on the back of the charging case is a Type-C port for charging.
I liked the look of the charging box, and the earbuds got a good build quality and a comfortable fit, which guarantees long-term wearing without any discomfort.
Connection and Control
I think each of my regular readers has long known how to connect earbuds to a smartphone. With Bluedio Fi earbuds, everything is quite simple and similar to another budget, and not only budget headphones.
The Bluedio Fi model uses Bluetooth wireless technology with version 5.0. Also, a Qualcomm QCC3020 chip with aptX codec support was installed in the case.
After several uses, I did not find any communication failures and the signal was always stable. There were no delays while watching videos on Youtube, and even during games.
As I mentioned, Bluedio Fi earbuds use touch controls:
- One-touch – play, pause, accept, or put up a phone conversation.
- Two touch – increase or decrease the volume.
- Three-touch – switch tracks forward or backward.
- Hold for about 2 seconds – call the voice assistant on your mobile device.
For the sound quality meets the 6mm dynamic driver, which sounds very loud.
At the same time, low frequencies received a weak bass, but medium and high frequencies have good detail in the sound.
Compared with past TWS earbuds, such as the Bluedio T Elf, the sound quality is very similar. But again, the Bluedio Fi model sits very well in the ear canal and is much more comfortable to wear than the T Elf.
If you compare the sound with other manufacturers, such as Haylou GT2 and others, the sound quality is very similar and it will be difficult to find serious differences.
Do not forget that these are budget earbuds and the quality of the microphone does not guarantee to be the best. Also, the location of the microphone is not the most favorable. During the testing of the microphone, my interlocutor heard me distinctly, but with a slight echo.
Like most manufacturers, Bluedio did not write the capacity of the built-in battery inside the earbuds.
Despite this, the Bluedio Fi device worked for about 5 hours at maximum volume. The result is pretty good, considering the low cost.
Through the charging box, the earbuds can be recharged about 4 times and the total battery life will be approximately 25 hours.
The charging time through a Type-C connection will be about 2 hours.
Conclusion and Reviews
The new budget TWS Bluedio Fi earbuds showed a positive side, and even minor flaws are minor, given its cost.
I really liked the fit in the ear canal, due to its low weight – it is about 3.5 grams of each earphone. Therefore, wearing even a long time will not be a problem. In addition, sound quality plays at a decent level, like most wireless earbuds.
Another positive point is the multifunctional touch control with the presence of volume control.
In conclusion, I want to note that the Bluedio Fi earbuds are definitely worth their attention.
Price and Where to buy cheaper?
Currently, the price tag for Bluedio Fi earbuds is approximately $33.25, but I would like to note that the price will decrease to $29.56 in 3 days.
Once again, I’m convinced that even budget earbuds show good technical features, as most of the more expensive TWS earbuds.
