Bluedio has a wide range of headphones, from wired versions to modern wireless connections. Currently, true wireless earbuds are very popular, and therefore, Bluedio is not far from the trend. Today I want to share my impressions of wireless earbuds called Bluedio T elf.
In our review, I will tell you about the build quality and materials, the main disadvantages and advantages of the Bluedio T elf wireless earbuds.
Almost the entire lineup of the Bluedio earbuds model has a budget price. This also applies to the Bluedio T elf model with a price tag of about $20.
For this money, you get well-balanced features, such as the frequency range from 20 to 15000 Hz, the resistance of 32 Ohms, Bluetooth 5.0, 650 mAh charging case with Type-C port and much more.
Let’s begin our test of T elf wireless earbuds with the unboxing.

Bluedio T elf: Unboxing
In our hands, we received a compact black box, on the front side are the earbuds, the name of the model and the company.
On the back of the box, I read the main technical characteristics of the device.
Inside the box, I saw one separate box and the charging box with earbuds. Inside the box, there are three packages of cushions with different sizes.
I was surprised even by the presence of special universal ear cushions that fit any ear. There is also a small black Type-C cable for charging the station. The last thing I found is instruction in various languages.
In general, the kit is very well built and there will be no problems with wireless earbuds when transporting. Now let’s talk about the ergonomics of the earbuds.
Bluedio T elf: Design and Appearance
Expect high-quality materials for the price should not be. Bluedio T elf wireless earbuds in the test are made of matte black plastic. This is not a high-quality plastic, as on more expensive models, but it is well built.
As for the size? When I first listened to music on Bluedio T elf, I was surprised that they are very compact and fit well in the ears. The earbuds do not bulge and they are firmly seated in my ears. Therefore, even when running or any training, Bluedio T elf will not fall out of the ears.
On the front side of the earbuds, you can see the mechanical control button. Pressing this button is very tight, so you need to make a certain effort.
I did not find the LED indicators on the case, so it’s hard to understand whether the earbuds are working or not.
On the reverse side of the plugs, there are magnetic connections with the charging case.
The angle of the sound guide is in good limits and there is even a metal mesh on the base.
On the official website and on the box I did not find any information about protection from water and dust. But according to the price of the device, it can be understood that there is no protection, so it is impossible to get under rain or water.
You may also notice that the design of the Bluedio T elf in our analisis is very similar to the Redmi AirDots wireless earbuds which we have already tested. They look like two drops of water and it is difficult to find the difference between them.
The charging case is made from almost the same black plastic as the headphones. On the front of the box, I see the Bluedio logo and one blue LED. The lid opens with a little effort, even with one hand you can open it without any problems.
On the right side of the case is a modern Type-C port for fast charging. This solution is difficult to find in the budget versions of earbuds, so this is a big plus for the company Bluedio.
Magnetic-mounted earbuds themselves are stored inside the case. Therefore, they keep excellently in their place.
In general, as for its price of $20, everything is fine, and I can not strongly criticize the quality of materials and assembly. But I really liked the compact size of the earbuds that fit perfectly in my ears.
Bluedio T elf: Connection and Use
As I mentioned at the beginning of the review, the Bluedio T elf earbuds in our test received a Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connection. With our testing, I did not have any problems with the network, the connection was stable and did not disappear.
When you first connect the earbuds to your device, you must turn on pairing mode and go to the Bluetooth menu. Next, select the available connection to Bluedio T elf and connect.
One click on a button in T elf wireless earbuds on either side of the ear – stops or plays music, answers calls or disconnects the handset. Double pressing of any button leads to the call of the last call. Control the volume and switching tracks here is impossible. Now I propose to talk about sound quality.
Bluedio T elf: Sound
Bluedio T elf sound in our test is really very good for its price. Even if you compare the sound in Bluedio and Redmi AirDots, the big difference is difficult to find between them.
I want to note that, as for the budget category, the headphones have pretty decent bass. The sounds are clear even at maximum volume and very good mids that I have not heard in this class for a long time.
A regular pop playlist gets a spectacular performance with Clean Bandit’s “Solo”, Bluedio T elf’s complex sound structures will certainly not be widely disclosed to my ears, but the sound in the earbuds is soft and warm.
The classical music becomes expressive. Double basses and cello roll wide and powerful under violins and vibraphones.e and the stage are not very wide.
In addition, a microphone is installed in the earbuds, so you can make calls. The sound quality during a call is not perfect, but if you need to talk for a short time, then it will do.
I can not say that this is the best sound that I heard in wireless earbuds, but as for its price, it is worth.
If you are not a professional music lover and want inexpensive wireless earbuds for listening to music on the road, playing sports or audio books, then Bluedio T elf would be a good choice.
Bluedio T elf: Battery
Bluedio T elf uses Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity in the analisis which makes power consumption less than on older versions. As the manufacturer indicates on one full charge, you can listen to music for up to 7 hours.
During our testing, I had about 4.5 hours at 60-70% of the volume level. With a charging case with a 650 mAh battery capacity, you can charge 4 times earbuds.
Of course, you will not find wireless charging in the box, but the Type-C port for fast charging is present. The full charge takes just over one hour.
Bluedio T elf: Conclusions and Reviews
It is difficult to strongly criticize earbuds which cost only $ 20. If you are a music lover and like to listen to good quality music, then you are not on the way with Bluedio T elf in our review.
If you take a headset for every day, for example, use it in transport, in the gym or just listen to podcasts, then Bluedio T elf would be a good choice.
As for sound, it has good and strong bass, but there are not enough details in the sound.
The build quality wants to be the best, but as for its price, it is difficult to expect.
On the positive side, the earbuds received a wireless Bluetooth 5.0 connection and fast charging with a Type-C connector.
