Today I want to talk about wireless headphones called QCY T3. We already did a test on QCY T1C, and if you did not read the review, then E1C showed itself with perfect sound and high-quality assembly.
Therefore, I ordered QCY T3 headphones to check how good they are, as they ask for them at a price just below $40.
In this article, I will test build quality and materials, find out the sound quality, and more.
The QCY T3 offers Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity, a sensitivity of 108 ± 3 dB, a resistance of 32 Ohms and a charging case for 600 mAh capacity. As for the characteristics are impressive, but is everything so good in practice, let’s get down to a detailed review.
QCY T3: Specifications
|Bluetooth protocol:||HFP/A2DP/HSP/AVRCP /SBC/AAC|
|Dimensions:||36 x 72 x 27.95 mm|
QCY T3: Unboxing
I got a typical box where on the front side there is a sketch of the headphones and a case with the name of the model and company.
On the backside is a technical specification in Chinese and English.
Inside the box, I found a charging case in a plastic protective packaging, instructions and a short micro USB charging cable. It is somehow strange that the manufacturer did not bother to put an additional set of ear cushions since the design of standard ear cushions is not typical for many models of headphones.
Also in a separate package, I received an additional cover, in the form of a bonus or a gift.
QCY T3: Design
The appearance of the QCY T3 wireless headphones is made in the style of Xiaomi Air Mi True Wireless Earphones or AirPods in our test.
They have glossy black plastic, of course, it looks solid, but not practical, as it is easily soiled. Also, over time, the plastic will get scratches on the glossy case – this will throw itself strongly into the eyes.
On the front part, there is an LED sensor and a touch panel for controlling and switching music tracks.
On the reverse side, I see – the name of the channel is left or right, a magnetic connection for charging the headphones in the case.
Immediately how can you outline that the ear pads have a non-standard look and not for everyone they may be suitable. This is the main drawback of this model and even in the box, there are no additional ear pads. Choosing the right size is problematic.
As for me? When wearing QCY T3 headphones, I did not have any big difficulties, but during the run, from time to time, the headphones fell out. If you listen to music in quiet mode, there are no problems.
There is a microphone hole on the bottom of the QCY T3.
Also, wireless headphones have IPX5 water protection. QCY T3 will not be afraid of rain, but swimming is naturally impossible.
In size – 40.2 x 17.6 x 22.1 mm and 4.6 grams in weight. They sit relatively well in the ears and almost do not feel them in weight.
The charging case has the same plastic as the headphones themselves, only the top cover has transparent plastic. Through the lid, I can see the charging of the headphones.
The lid closes tightly and does not cause accidental openings in the backpack, that is, it closes well and tightly.
On the back, there is a charging port with a micro USB port.
The dimensions of the case are 36 x 72 x 27.95 mm and weigh 44 grams with two headphones inside. This is not a large charging case that is easy to carry and easy to fit in your pants pocket.
Build quality and materials are not the best, but you should not expect much from this class. For everyday use and tidy use, the QCY T3 earbuds will last a long time.
QCY T3: Connection and Control
The QCY T3 earphones in our test use Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connection. Also inside the headphones, there are HFP / HSF / A2DP / AVRCP / AAC / SBC codecs that provide good and stable operation up to 10 meters from the source.
The connection is the same as for most headphones. For the first connection, you need to turn on the headphones and go to the Bluetooth menu on your device.
You will need to get used to the control since the touch panel is very sensitive and accidental pressing will be present.
During testing, I got used to controlling and doing not receive problems.
The controls are simple and intuitive – one click is a play/pause or accept/drop a call. If you hold for two seconds on the left earphone – switching to the previous track, on the right – to the next track.
To increase the volume you need to hold from the bottom up, and to decrease the opposite.
QCY T3: Sound
Much to the disappointment, the sound in the headphones does not cause much emotion. Naturally, this is a budget option for headphones, but I would like to get more.
Low frequencies sound mediocre because the bass in the headphones is critically lacking, but the detail is good and the instruments are well audible.
Mids and highs are similar, but you can listen to music on your daily commute to work or school, given your price.
QCY T3 are well suited for watching movies or TV shows, will also be a good option for listening to audiobooks.
The quality of the microphone, for its price, really surprised me. The interlocutors hear me well, even near the road with a lot of car traffic. Indeed, the quality of the microphone is one of the best that I have met in the class.
QCY T3: Battery
During my testing, the QCY T3 headphones worked for 4 hours and 20 minutes at 100% volume levels. If you listen to 50%, then the headphones worked for about 6 hours.
The charging case has a 600 mAh battery capacity that can charge 5-6 times in 1 hour.
The charging time of the case with headphones will be 2.5 hours via micro USB port.
QCY T3: Conclusions and Reviews
QCY T3 wireless headphones are not the best, as previous QCY models showed themselves from a much better side.
But if we talk about the QCY T3 and given its price, then I would like to get a little better sound quality and more voluminous bass sound.
This headphone model is not suitable for sports, but if you like listening to audiobooks or watching movies and TV shows, then QCY T3 will be a good choice.
Also, the headphones received a high-quality microphone that works clean and good for its class. If you are looking for headphones with a quality microphone, then the QCY T3 will be a good choice.
