Tronsmart Onyx Ace Review


Thanks in advance to Tronsmart for providing the Onyx Ace and case free of charge for review.

Do you like the "thin pipe" design of Apple's AirPods Pro but not the exorbitant $250 price tag? We all know that there are a bunch of less-expensive alternatives. The Tronsmart Onyx Ace is another one, and these are at a great price.

I wore these for a few hours the other day while listening to my favorite podcast. How’s the sound quality? Very good, given the price. As long as you are able to obtain a good inner-ear seal (a requirement for most all earbuds like these), you'll be able to enjoy smooth and bass-forward audio with very good noise isolation.

After owning AirPods myself for about a month and then trying out the Ace, I’ve come to the conclusion that the Ace sounds similar to the AirPods Pro, and that’s a good thing, especially since price is almost too good to be true.

Other features are that the charging case uses USB-C and yields a total of 24 hours of play time. This is yet another example of a really awesome AirPods alternative at a fraction of the cost.

Price: $29.39 currently through the geekbuying.com site.

Tronsmart Onyx Ace review

First I would like to thanks Tronsmart for sending me the Onyx Ace for review. I am a fan of Tronsmart products because they are very well build and are value for money compare to most other brands. My first TWS earbuds is the Tronsmart Spunky Beat. Let’s see how the Tronsmart Onyx Ace fares.

Design and build quality

Generally the TWS (True wireless stereo) in the market comes in 2 designs, the inner ear type (insert deep into the ear canal) and the stem type of earbuds (outside the ear canal). The Tronsmart Onyx Ace belongs to the latter design, which is a more comfortable yet easy to control type of earbuds. The earbuds are well designed and stays comfortable in the ears during my normal usage outdoor walking around.

The case is the glossy white type of plastic and thus gives the case a premium type of look. There are 4 leds on the case to indicate the battery level 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%. The case and earbuds are all rated IPX5 which mean they will survive light rain, sweat and low water splashes. The cover of the case opens and closes with a solid quality kind of feeling and the magnets keep the case cover close perfectly.

Sound and call quality

The Tronsmart Onyx Ace’s QCC3020 chip supports APTX for most android devices and ACC codec for IOS devices. Its extreme low power consumption and low latency means there will be no lag while watching movie with your devices.

The pairing of the earbuds started while the cover is open which is a surprise as most TWS earbud pairs after the ear buds are taken out of the case. As the Onyx Ace is the long stem type of earbuds, silicons tips of different sizings are not provided. The earbuds stays on the ear comfortably and “disappears” after a while while listening to the music. Volume, music play/pause, call answer/reject and call assistant controls are all available via the touch sensitive button on the earbuds.

Tronsmart earbuds and speakers are well known for their rich, clear and deep bass sound. The Onyx Ace is the same provided you are able to get a good seal in your ear. Sound quality I would give it a 7.8/10.

Because the Onyx Ace is the long stem type of earbud with 4 external microphones, the microphone quality is loud and clear for the other party in the call. My friend is able to hear my voice clear and loud. Backgound noise are filtered away by the QCC 3020’s CVC8.0 technology.

Verdict

Tronsmart Onyx Ace is the TWS that I would recommend to those who are looking for airpod alternatives. For a modest $38 you can buy an ergonomics TWS-earbuds with extremely good build quality, sound quality and decent battery life. Tronsmart definitely hit a winner with the Onyx Ace.
