Today I have reviewed an updated version of wireless earbuds from Whizzer, namely the Whizzer TP1S model.
Earlier, I presented TWS earbuds with Whizzer TP1 without the S prefix, but unfortunately, I was not able to test the previous generation. Therefore, I cannot compare the sound quality between the two generations.
Despite this point, I have a lot of experience with various models of wireless earbuds. Thus, I have something to compare with and tell my impression about the quality of the sound and its features.
First of all, I want to note that the new generation of Whizzer TP1S belongs to the middle segment of wireless earbuds. Since the price tag for the device is approximately $60.
I have already tested some models from Whizzer, so the new TP1S model will not be my first acquaintance with this brand. Of course, the manufacturer Whizzer puts a lot of emphases not only on quality sound but also on unique design and amazing build quality.
Also, the earbuds can boast of the presence of Bluetooth version 5.0, 10 mm dynamic driver, and long battery life.
So let me start my full review of the updated TWS earbud model with unboxing and then find out how the earbuds sound.
Whizzer TP1S: Specifications
|Driver unit:||10mm Dynamic driver|
|Bluetooth protocol:||AAC, SBC|
Unboxing and packaging
The new earbud model comes in a small white box with a rose gold stripe and lettering. On the front part, I did not find any picture, but only an inscription in large letters – TYPE KYLIN TP.1S, and in the lower part there is the name of the company – Whizzer.
On the back of the box, the earbuds received the main technical features. These are the Bluetooth version, frequency, charging and playback times, resistance, and other indicators.
The box itself is made of thick cardboard, which will definitely protect the earbuds from serious damage during transport.
Inside the box, I found a charging box with earbuds inside. And at the bottom, there is a set of silicone ear tips of four pairs of different sizes, instructions, and a Type-C charging cable.
In general, the package looks quite interesting and complete. It is also modern as it uses a Type-C charging connection. Ok, now let’s talk a little about the appearance.
Design, build quality and materials used
I previously tested a very interesting TWS earbud model called the Whizzer T2. So, the materials of the new generation of Whizzer TP1S earbuds are exactly the same as those of the T2 model.
The charging box is made in the shape of a round sea pebble and it feels like a matte soft-touch plastic, which is pleasant to hold in your hands. Also, such plastic is very similar to the structure of stone, but the feeling and weight give out that it is plastic.
On the front of the charging box, there is a metal plate with the name of the company. The back panel received an LED indicator, and at the bottom, there is a Type-C port for charging.
The build quality is at a high level, for example, the lid itself does not have any backlash and opens with a magnetic connection. I can attribute to a small minus – it’s not quite comfortable getting the earbuds themselves out of the charging box.
As for the earbuds, they are made in the form of Apple AirPods, but the Whizzer TP1S looks much stronger and more unique.
The earbuds are made of the same pleasant matte material as the charging box. But the earbuds also stand out with gold elements at the base of the legs and around the touch button.
By weight, each earbud does not exceed 5 grams, which has a positive effect on comfort. For example, I could wear the Whizzer TP1S for several hours and not feel any discomfort. Also, the earbuds are IPX5 waterproof. Thus, you can not be afraid of light rain or sweat.
The outer side of the earbuds received a touch panel with the company’s logo, a microphone hole is located just below.
There are two charging contacts at the bottom of the legend. And on the inside of the earbuds, there is a light indicator, which is very unusual. The sound guide has a groove on which the ear cushion is firmly held. Three additional holes for the microphone were made near the sound guide.
Overall, I really liked the look of the new Whizzer TP1S earbuds. It is also worth noting that I have a white version on my test, but the manufacturer also offers a choice of black combination.
Connection, latency, and control
Like most TWS earbuds, the Whizzer TP1S has received a Bluetooth wireless connection with version 5.0. The signal quality is quite high. I could use earbuds at a distance of up to 10 meters from the signal source without question. At the same time, I did not find breaks or other troubles.
As for the latency, there is a slight delay, and it can be specially noticed when watching videos on YouTube or during games. But I do not want to say that the latency is very large, but it is there. Also, do not forget that these are not gaming earbuds, which have almost minimal latency.
As I already mentioned, touch control is located on the front of the Whizzer TP1S earbuds. But I cannot call it highly functional. Since most of the functions will be unavailable.
- One-touch on any earbud – play, pause, accept, or hang up.
- Double tapping on the right channel is the next track, and on the left is the previous one.
- Hold for 2 seconds – reject the call.
I really miss the voice control and volume control here.
Sound and microphone quality
A 10mm dynamic driver was installed inside each Whizzer TP1S earbud. You can tell it’s not a big size for the AirPods-shaped earbuds. But do not forget that these are in-ear earbuds with ear cushions, which practically have no loss in sound, as for example, Sami in-ear earbuds.
Therefore, even a 10 mm driver size was enough for me. The volume level is quite high and listening to music even in noisy places will not be a problem.
In terms of quality, the low frequencies received a pleasant and balanced sound. Definitely, the bass in the Whizzer TP1S is present, but it does not stand out much compared to the mids and highs.
The mids are well-tuned and play great. The sound is very pleasant and accurate. But some compositions in the upper range do not do their job well. At maximum volume, a musical instrument such as a guitar plays a little squeaky.
Other musical instruments such as bass guitars or drums sound good with a dynamic and dense sound.
Also, I liked the work of the microphones. Even in noisy and loud places, the interlocutor heard me clearly, but I had to raise my tone to an average level.
Another positive aspect of Whizzer TP1S is battery life. Each earbud has a 55 mAh battery capacity and at 75% volume level, the earbuds lasted about 5.5 hours.
The charging box has a 450 mAh battery capacity and thanks to it you can recharge the earbuds 6 more times. Thus, the total battery life is about 30-32 hours.
In addition, the Type-C connection is good news, since the charging time does not exceed 1.5 hours.
Conclusion, reviews, advantages, and disadvantages
Whizzer TP1S is a unique wireless earbud that has good technical features in terms of sound. If you love the balanced and warm sound, then the updated TP1S is for you.
In addition, the new earbuds from Whizzer pleased me with high-quality assembly and unusual materials of manufacture. Matte plastic interspersed very much resembles a stone.
Also, in terms of wearing comfort, I have no special comments, the ear tips are quite high quality even from the kit. The battery life is average, but for everyday use this time will be enough for the average user.
The disadvantages I can attribute is not quite a wide functionality of the touch control, namely due to the lack of a volume control function. I would also like to have slightly less latency during games.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
If you are interested in the updated model Whizzer TP1S like me, then I bring to your attention the official store. Here you can buy earbuds at a low price for $ 60.49 with a 45% discount.
Of course, I liked the Whizzer earbuds, both for their sound and their fit, build quality and materials. Therefore, I can definitely recommend the earbuds for purchase and add the new TWS model of earbuds from Whizzer to my favorite collection.
