A new model of earbuds from the Soundpeats brand has been added to my collection. This time, these amazing TWS earbuds are simply called Soundpeats Q.
According to the standard plan, in this article, you can find out about the sound quality, how the interlocutors will hear you, as well as the battery life. In addition, I will share with you about the quality of the workmanship, the materials used, and even tell my thoughts on the comfort of wearing.
The first thing I want to draw your attention to is the cost. The Soundpeats Q earbud model belongs to the budget class of devices, so the price tag was about $30. But what can you get for such a low cost? Let’s take a quick look at the technical stuff.
In each earbud, the manufacturer uses a 10mm dynamic driver. The device also received a Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connection and the presence of AAC and SBC codecs. In addition, I liked the importance of battery life and, of course, the presence of wireless charging in the charging case.
At first glance, it may seem that the technical features do not really distinguish the earbuds, but let’s check how they performed from a practical point of view. Therefore, I want to start my full and in-depth review with unpacking.
Soundpeats Q: Specifications
|Driver unit:||10 mm driver|
|Bluetooth protocol:||AAC and SBC|
Unboxing and packaging
Like most wireless earbuds from Soundpeats, the new Q doesn’t really stand out. But I don’t mean to say that the appearance of the packaging is bad. On the contrary, I really like their bright box design with interesting pictures.
Inside the package, I found – these are the earbuds themselves with a charging box. The package also includes various documentation, a small Type-C cable, and a set of silicone ear tips.
In general, the equipment is really good. But it should be borne in mind that these are budget and inexpensive earbuds, so I did not notice the premium cover here. For example, the packaging material is quite simple, but I guess the manufacturer paid more attention to sound quality and materials. Therefore, let’s talk in more detail about the appearance.
Design, build quality and materials
The appearance of the new model of Soundpeats Q earbuds turned out to be very simple and minimalistic. I really liked the design, but apart from that, I liked the combination of materials used. In the case of the Q model, matte durable plastic is used. The manufacturer offers two options to choose from – these are white and black. I tested the earbuds in white and they look really amazing.
I also can’t ignore the build quality, as the earbuds are pretty good. My copy was perfectly assembled and I did not find any extraneous squeaks and noises.
As for the ease of wearing, everything is in order here. I could use the earbuds for more than 2 hours without taking them off and after that, I didn’t have much discomfort. But I note that these are in-ear earbuds with silicone ear tips. Therefore, you will not be able to wear it for a long time when you compare wearing it with earbuds.
During my sports activities, I didn’t have any particular problems either. But I would like to note that this model is not intended for sports, as it does not have protection against water and splashes. At least I didn’t find any information. Therefore, avoid damp places and get your earbuds wet.
As I said, my earbuds are made in white. But also on the front part, you can see a gray circle on which the company logo flaunts and there is also a touch panel.
Slightly lower on the legs is an LED indicator of operation, but a two-pin charging connector was installed on the inside of the headphone case. Also on the case, you can see two microphones on each earbud for better conversational sound. But again, I will tell you about the sound quality of the microphone in one section.
At the same time, the charging box of Soundpeats Q earbuds is also made of white matte plastic. The case itself received a magnetic lid connection and I want to note that the build quality of the box is quite good. For example, the lid has good movement and practically no backlash, even when open.
I also liked the small size of the charging box, which will allow you to put it in your jeans pocket without too much trouble. On the back of the box, you can see the Type-C charging port. But you also have the possibility of contactless charging, which I will talk about a little later.
If you open the lid of the box, it is easy to notice the presence of an LED indicator of the battery level and a pairing or reset button. There are seats for earbuds with a magnetic connection between the indicator and the button.
As you have noticed, the quality of workmanship and assembly has shown itself much better in practice than at first glance during unpacking. But I am in no hurry to make hasty conclusions and therefore propose to start the reasoning with the signal quality and features in control.
Connection, delay, and touch control
At the beginning of the article, I already mentioned that the Soundpeats Q earbuds received a Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connection. This, of course, is a good connection, but it’s difficult to call it new. Since there are already models of earbuds with a version of the Bluetooth 5.1 connection and even Bluetooth 5.2 with the same price range as the Q model.
Despite this fact, the connection between the earbuds and the smartphone was always stable and strong. I did not have strong dips or interference even at a distance of 10 meters from the signal source. Also, these earbuds are equipped with AAC and SBC audio codecs.
If we talk about latency, then with this model of wireless earbuds everything is fine. With Soundpeats Q you can listen to music and watch videos on YouTube with great comfort. The same can be said about games, for example, I played a little in PUBG Mobile and did not have much discomfort.
Now about touch control, it works really well here and I practically did not have any accidental clicks. And in terms of functionality, everything is fine here. For example, one-touch increases or decreases the volume level. Double-tap – play, pause, accept, or put a phone call. A triple tap brings up the voice assistant on your mobile device.
Sound and microphone quality
A 10mm dynamic driver was installed in each channel of the Soundpeats Q earbuds. This is a really large driver size, considering that these are in-ear earbuds with ear tips. At the same time, there is good sound insulation from the outside world and you can easily enjoy your favorite music.
I also note that this is a budget earbud model with price tags of about $30. Therefore, you should not expect active noise canceling and transparency mode functions.
As for the sound quality, I liked everything here. These earbuds are suitable for most genres, from classic to rock. The low frequencies are very restrained and there is even a little pleasant bass. Of course, it is not as voluminous and strong as that of the more expensive versions of TWS earbuds, but here it clearly plays well.
The mids and highs were well assembled, and the instruments played clearly and distinctly from each other. I also liked the sound of the vocalist’s voice, it sounds quite bright and straightforward, and not somewhere in the background.
Other than that, I liked Soundpeats Q’s microphones. Naturally, the sound quality in a quiet place was just perfect. Also in a noisy place, my voice was well heard by my interlocutors and therefore everything is fine with microphones.
Battery and run time
But the battery life depends on many factors. For example, the volume level and distance from the signal source. But I note that each earbud has a 55 mAh battery capacity, and an additional 300 mAh battery is used in the charging box.
If you listen to music or watch movies, then the earbuds can work for about 6.5 hours on a single charge at 75% volume level. Of course, if you listen to a little quieter, then the battery life can increase up to 7 hours. If you use the charging box, the autonomous work will grow to 21 hours.
At the same time, the charging time through the Type-C port will be up to 1.5 hours, but through a wireless connection about 2.5 hours.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
Soundpeats Q is another amazing earbud from the Soundpeats brand that gave me a lot of positive impressions and emotions.
These earbuds may not be as highly functional, but they got everything they needed for everyday use.
For example, this is a multifunctional touch control with the ability to adjust the volume level. I also liked the look, the build quality, the materials used, and the comfortable fit in the ear canal.
In addition, the battery life and the presence of wireless charging became an important factor for me. At the same time, the sound quality, as for its segment of devices, is very good.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
Currently, everyone can purchase Soundpeats Q earbuds at a very tempting offer for only $33.32 with a 50% discount.
Thus, if you are looking for inexpensive, but high-quality earbuds, then the choice of a model from the company Soundpeats will be good.
