Package Content & Design
Onyx Ace comes well-protected just like other Tronsmart’s products. There are earphones, charging case, USB-C charging cable, warranty card and multiple languages user manual in the package.



Yeah... Meet the budget 'Apple AirPods'. Look like it but loaded with much better hardware inside. Build quality is great with sturdy plastic housing. Stylish design with glossy surface. Yes, it is very light in weight at about 4 gram. In addition, it is loaded with sensitive multi-function touch control on top. And bright white LED light indicator at the bottom. The charging case is nice and small that ease to carry in your pocket. Lastly, it comes in 2 colours - black and white.



Fit, Comfort & Isolation
Tronsmart Onyx Ace is having the traditional earbud design instead of the common in-ear. Fit very well and comfortable to wear for long hour too. And it stays securely while exercising and jogging. No worry about dropping it at all since it’s so light. Don’t forget the IPX5 splash-proof that works well against sweat, splashes and rain. No different ear tip sizes, just one size to fit all. Therefore, you won’t have great noise isolation which is known for this kind of earbuds. But it's great to know what's happening around you like incoming traffic.



Performance Result
Bluetooth range is average for TWS earbuds. Onyx Ace can go up to 5m+ with obstacles like walls. Connection is stable as long as you keep in range. In addition, the audio and video are virtually in-sync thanks to aptX for ultra-low latency. So it is suitable for movie, games and MV. Lastly, you can use it as stereo or mono as you wish.



Based on specs, you can enjoy up to 5 hours of music playback. Up to 24 hours of listening with the charging case. More than enough for your daily sport activities. And there is battery indicator status on iOS and Android devices. Never forget to charge it when power is running low.

Excellent phone call experience. Others can hear me loud and clear thanks to quad-microphone with Environment Noise Cancellation technology. Yup, it will identify your voice intelligently and filter out the background noise. Great for those who are looking for an earbud for phone calls.



Sound Quality
Bright sound signature is what you get from Tronsmart Onyx Ace. Without proper seal due to earbuds design, you won’t get punchy bass like those in-ears. Therefore, it is great for those who are looking for clear and clean treble. Bass is there but on the relaxing tone. If you need more bass, look for Onyx Neo. Or Spunky Beat for extra deep bass. In short, Onyx Ace sounds great for the price.



For details, highs are crisp and clear. Sharp but not until there is harshness. Well-controlled no doubt. Basically, it is the best part of Ace and focuses on. As for mids, vocals sound nice in both male and female. Natural and sweet indeed. Bass is there and decent in performance. But don’t expect boom boom kind of bass will do. Soundstage performance is decent for the price. Instruments placement separation is good even in the complex scene.
