|Price history for SOUNDPEATS Dual Dynamic Drivers Wireless Earbuds|
The SoundPeats Truengine SE earbuds is one of SoundPeat’s latest models features dual dynamic drivers, multi-function controls, and excellent battery life. It uses Bluetooth 5.0 with the aptX codecs, giving it crystal clear sound quality.
What you get
The SoundPeats Truengine SE earbuds packaging come with a micro USB charger, additional silicone ear tips, instruction manual, charging case, and the earbuds. Each earbud has a 50mAH battery, giving them 6 hours of battery life individually. With a fully charged case, you can get 27 hours of playback time.
The charging case has 4 LED lights indicating the charging status and it takes roughly 2 hours to fully charge its 500mAH battery. We were hoping to see USB-C on this model but the manufacturer went with a Micro USB cable instead.
The case is small enough to fit comfortably in your pocket and has auto-pairing and disconnect features. Opening the case will automatically pair the earbuds to the most recently used device. When taken out of your ear, the audio playback will pause and will disconnect when placed in the case.
Multi-Function Buttons & Comfortability
There are numerous earbuds you can purchase for under $50 but very few give you multi-function controls like the SoundPeats Truengine SE. The multi-function buttons allow you to control everything from playback, volume, and your virtual assistant – whether it be Siri or Google Assistant.
Each earbud has its own function and it is a press, not a tap. First, pressing either one of the buttons will pause playback. From there, the right earbud requires a double press to increase volume. Holding down the right button for a second will skip to the next song and a triple tap will launch Siri or Google assistant.
The opposite is true for the left side and double pressing it will decrease volume while holding for a second will go to the previous track. If you’re used to tapping instead of pressing, it may take you a little time to adjust and get the timing right.
Personally, as a daily gym-goer, I need volume control and something that wont fall out of my ears when I’m moving around and performing certain exercises. The SoundPeat Truengine SE earbuds have not disappointed in that regard. Where they have disappointed me is when I want to lie in bed and listen to audio. As a side sleeper, I find it too uncomfortable to lie on my side with these in my ear.
Do the SoundPeat Truengine SE earbuds sound as good as AirPods, Bose, or Powerbeats? No. However, if you’re lucky, you’ll purchase these somewhere between $35 to $40, and the SoundPeats sound better or just as good as anything you’ll find in that price range. I would argue that they sound better than the Razer Hammerheads that are currently priced at $99.
The SoundPeats are surprisingly good, which is why they are so popular. Typically, budget earbuds lack sufficient volume and bass. Because these have traditional silicone ear tips, they create a seal that blocks outside noise and funnels the volume and bass. And, off course, the Qualcomm QCC3020 chip in combination with Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX codecs provide an immersive Hi-Fi sound.
Pairing & Water Proof Rating
The initial manual pairing is simple, hold down the multi-function button until it flashes red and white, then go to your Bluetooth settings on your smartphone and complete the pairing process. After the connection is completed for the first time, the earbuds will auto-pair when you open the case. Lastly, the SoundPeats Truengine SE earbuds have an IPX5 (rain and sweat) resistant rating.
One of the Best Earbuds under 50
There aren’t very many true wireless earbuds under $50 that give you the type of sound quality, control, and battery life that the SoundPeat Truengine SE earbuds provide. These earbuds match up very well with other models that cost double or triple their cost. If you can purchase them between $35 to $40 then you’ve got a great deal. Amazon stock sells out very often due to popularity. In that case, you might need to check Aliexpress or Banggood.
When compared to the newer TicPods 2 Pro, the SoundPeats offer more battery life and a better waterproof rating. The TicPods have a newer Qualcomm driver and may be slightly louder, but both earbuds use the atpX codecs and sound quite similar. In fact, you could argue that the SoundPeats sound better because of their eartip design – it’s a matter of preference.
The SoundPeats offer way more battery life than the Razer Hammerheads. Additionally, it has a better waterproof rating and uses the newer Qualcomm QCC3020 chip + atpX codec. As with cellphones, consumers are starting to realize that you don’t always have to spend hundreds of dollars to get quality products. The SoundPeats Truengine SE earbuds give you both, great quality and price.
