  1. Tronsmart Splash 1 Bluetooth Speaker

    5.00 star(s)
    Whilst this speaker isn’t exactly state of the art being an inexpensive small bluetooth speaker, it does have a specific purpose in mind - and that is being able to listen to music, podcasts, etc, whilst taking a bath of shower. The speaker kinda has a similar look and feel to the Google Home Mini - only a bit bigger. Obviously this is a single speaker so forget about any kind of stereo image but the sound quality isn't too bad considering. The speaker does have a good quality 'feel' to it - it certainly doesn't feel cheap. I suspect the bulk of...
  2. Tronsmart Onyx Prime Dual-Armature Driver Wireless Earbuds QCC3040 BT 5.2

    4.50 star(s)
    Tronsmart Onyx Prime - Giant Killer? Well, I have to say that regancipher's rather excellent review of the Tronsmart Onyx Prime has left me feeling rather inadequate. It's definitely a hard act to follow - especially considering that my thoughts and opinions on these headphones pretty much match regancipher's findings in his review. Case The case pretty much looks and feels like a lot of other inexpensive Bluetooth IEM's out there - small enough to easily fit into the coin pocket of your jeans (God, it's been many years since I've worn a...
  3. Tronsmart Battle RGB Gaming TWS Ultra-Low Latency 13mm Drivers

    4.00 star(s)
    Tronsmart have very kindly sent me a number of their products to review over the last few months and I have to say that I’m constantly impressed with their stuff - be it bluetooth iem’s, full sized headphones or wireless speakers. Tronsmart appears to put what’s important in their stuff - good amplification, good sound quality and overall good electronics. Where they perhaps sometimes have a flaw, it’s with the materials they use. For example, their Q10 full sized bluetooth headphones have excellent range, rather good sound quality and some genuinely...
  4. Tronsmart Studio Bluetooth Speaker

    5.00 star(s)
    Tronsmart have a really impressive array of inexpensive wireless audio products in their catalogue right now. I'm very grateful to them for supplying a range of products to me for review - with absolutely no pressure on me to post a good review. In all honesty I rate their products very highly - especially regarding their performance/value for money. The Studio feature set includes:- Rubberised buttons on top of the unit that offer full controls. Line input. Micro Sd Card slot. Tronsmart App control which offers alternative EQ settings and...
  5. Tronsmart Onyx Apex True Wireless™ Stereo ANC Earbuds QCC3040 TWS BT5.2

    4.00 star(s)
    I have to admit, I have far too many headphones! I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one on these forums to have this problem but it's something that I'm getting used to. I embraced the concept of wireless headphones quite early on in their evolution and have definitely welcomed the improvements in performance and sound quality the last couple of years have brought. Amongst my collection are the following:- Sone WF1000XM3 - Sony WH1000XM2 - Tronsmart Apollo Bold - Tronsmart Apollo Air + - Mavin Air-X - Lypertek Tevi - iBasso CF01/IT00 - Tronsmart Q10...
  6. Tronsmart Apollo Air TrueWireless Stereo Plus Hybrid ANC Earbuds

    3.50 star(s)
    I have become a big fan of Tronsmart's products over the past few months. I have reviewed the Apollo Bold, Q10, Air and their Force 2 bluetooth speaker - all these products were of high quality, worked flawlessly and offered superb value for money. Tronsmart recently sent me their Air + model to review. Having experienced their Air model to good effect, I was curious to see what differences there were. Interestingly, although the Air + model is being advertised as being capable of wireless charging, I found that I could wirelessly charge...
  7. Tronsmart Apollo Air

    4.50 star(s)
    Introduction I have had the opportunity to review a number of Tronsmart products recently - they very kindly sent me the Apollo Bolds, Apollo Q10 full sized ANC headphones and their recently released Force 2 bluetooth speaker and now their very new Apollo Air ANC buds. Note that I haven't felt any obligation to rate them higher than they're worth - the truth is I think their products are very good quality and excellent value for money. Description The case reminds me of the Apple Airpods Pro - although the headphones fit inside the case...
  8. SoundPEATS T2 Hybrid Active Noise Canceling ANC Wireless Earbuds TWS

    4.50 star(s)
    Introduction Anyone who has looked at my profile or read my previous reviews will know that I'm a big fan of bluetooth headphones - both full sized and iems. I've had the opportunity to try out quite a few and am comfortable in saying that there's now quite a few inexpensive models on the market now that can compete with the more expensive models on the market now. In my opinion, the Soundpeats P2 definitely falls into this camp. I have a policy when reviewing the less expensive headphones out there. I don't think it's generally fair to compare...
  9. Tronsmart Q10

    5.00 star(s)
    Introduction For various reasons I appear to have rather a lot of bluetooth headphones in my collection - in fact, nearly all of my headphones are either bluetooth or often run with additional bluetooth hardware. Amongst my collection I have the Sony WH1000XM2, WF1000 XM3, Mavin Air-X, Lypertek Tevi, iBasso CF01/IT00 combination and the Tronsmart Apollo Bold’s. My first experience with Tronsmart products were the Bold’s - which I initially found way too bassy for my liking. However, a combination of continual use coupled with an Android...
  10. Tronsmart Force 2

    4.50 star(s)
    Tronsmart Bluetooth Speaker I have to be honest up front - when Tronsmart contacted me asking if I would be interested in reviewing their latest bluetooth speaker I was somewhat hesitant. The reason why is that I tend to use headphones for most of my listening and, being a bit of an audio snob, was very doubtful that I would actually like the sound that something like this produces. I'm really glad I did agree in the end though because this little speaker really is surprisingly good. My first impression was that the speaker is remarkably small -...
  11. Sony NW-A55 DAP

    4.50 star(s)
    Well made, inexpensive and sounds great. Well I have to admit that this is the first completely unjustifiable purchase I have made in quite some time. Firstly, I tend to do a lot of my listening with bluetooth headphones which really don’t offer any sound quality differences between different players - assuming they’re using the same codec of course. Secondly, I spend more and more time listening to streamed content (usually Google Play Music) and am pretty much satisfied with its sound quality. Thirdly, I pretty much always carry my phone around...
  12. Dudios T8 TWS Headphones

    4.00 star(s)
    Introduction Carrie from Dudios kindly sent me the T8 Wireless Earbuds for review. These are comparatively inexpensive Bluetooth 5.0 TWS headphones with touch controls. There is very little to set it apart from the multitudes of other TWS headphones which are currently available on Amazon - let’s see if there’s something special about these. Case The case is made of plastic (no surprises there) and appears to be somewhat more rugged feeling than the lightweight case supplied with the Tronsmart Bold’s for example. The outside of the case has a...
  13. Tronsmart Apollo Bold

    4.50 star(s)
    Introduction I reviewed the Tronsmart Apollo Bold active noise cancelling TWS a while back and the conclusion to my review was that I couldn’t recommend them due to their excessive bass in my opinion. Well, it’s time to eat some humble pie - After a combination of software update and burning in (I guess) they sound good - really REALLY GOOD! What’s Changed Much of my original review still counts - if you want the minute details on these headphones, check out the following link for some truly excellent reviews. The recent software update has...
  14. iBasso IT00

    5.00 star(s)
    This is going to be a very difficult review for me to do.The reason why is that the IT00 has very little ‘character’ of its own. To my ears they’re ruler flat, detailed throughout the frequency range, fit really well, are pretty efficient and appear to be very well made. Perhaps you can see why I’m struggling. What I have basically described is the perfect in ear monitor. Obviously there are better IEM’s out there - it would be foolish to describe these as the best you can possibly get as this simply isn’t the case. However, once you take their...
  15. iBasso CF01

    5.00 star(s)
    Introduction In my opinion bluetooth has come a long way in the last couple of years and I really feel that we have reached a point where it's becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between a wired and a wireless connection. Through a combination of review units being sent out and my own purchases I really shouldn't have, I appear to have amassed a rather embarrassing amount of wireless headphones. Here's the list (mostly based on my personal preferences from best downwards):- Sony WH1000xm2 Without a doubt these are my favourite...
  16. Tronsmart Apollo Bold

    3.50 star(s)
    Initial Impressions I’ve had the opportunity to review a number of wireless headphones over the last couple of years - Tronsmart very kindly sent me a set of their latest active noise cancelling TWS earbuds to review - the Apollo. Packaging for the Apollo’s is extremely impressive - definitely comparable to the packaging used on my Sony WF1000XM3’s. Unfolding the magnetically secured box reveals the charging case and headphones embedded in some surprisingly difficult to remove packaging. Overall the packaging shouts out that you’re getting a good...

    Introduction Firstly, before anything else, I have to apologise for my excessive wordiness. I can assure you that in person I’m a man of few words - in fact I’m positively antisocial! I have been an enthusiastic headphone user now for many many years and have seen some remarkable advances in this field as time has gone on. In the last couple of years I have kinda focussed on bluetooth audio and have ended up with some very impressive hardware - the Sony WH1000XM2 and WF1000XM3’s, the Lypertek Tevi, the Apple Airpods and the Mavin Air-X in...
  18. Dudios Tic Wireless earbuds

    4.00 star(s)
    Dudios Tic Bluetooth Earbuds Preamble I've had a fair amount of experience with different Bluetooth headphones over the past couple of years - from full size, through Bluetooth buds which connect to each other with a cable to the true wireless headphones which have now become so popular. Although I do still have a few wired headphones still in my collection - the Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10, Sennheiser HD598 Sr and the 1More Triple Driver IEMs, I find myself listening through Bluetooth headphones most of the time these days. I love the convenience...
  19. Lypertek TEVI

    5.00 star(s)
    Physical Description The Lypertek Tevi are a fairly plain looking pair of true wireless headphones - definitely reminiscent of the Sennheiser TWS headphones but at a fraction of their price. I managed to pick these up at a discount price from Amazon. The Tevi's feature a single push button on each earphone (which I personally found quite hard to find and press when I had them in my ears) but the good news is that all your necessary functions can be accessed from these buttons - including volume up and down. This is always a nice feature on TWS...
  20. Dekoni pads for Sony WH1000XM2

    4.00 star(s)
    Introduction Firstly let me state up-front that I absolutely love the Sony WH1000xm2 headphones. Whilst I'm more than comfortable with the notion that there may well be better, more accurate headphones out there, I just love the sound character of the Sony's. The only problem that I have with them is their fit. I know that there are some people who can get their ears to fit inside the ear cups but that's just not going to happen with me. As a result they tend to start to get uncomfortable after about 30 minutes of use. Whilst I'm aware that this...
