Yes but
if it is not run on TWS+ mode but only TWS mode, then it is normal for the master side to use more battery than the slave side.
Yes but the difference was 81 % in L and 63 % in R. Anyway i have had it for 24 hours or so only. I will test it more and report my usage experience. I am not sure how we can select TWS or TWS+ manually. I used a Fiio M6 and a Samsung galaxy tab S6 to pair with it.

Only source (*mainly smartphones) with selected higher end Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC can support TWS+ mode. Otherwise it will uses TWS mode as default.

TRN BT30

Too early to draw a conclusion, but initial impression is that it is about the same level as OE Audio WS-1 and FiiO UTWS3.

Hope they do better job with QC. My BT20S Pro box died within 3 months. Now I have dongles and connectors rendered practically useless as I can't charge them.

Got these today.

Sound is really good with Tripowin x HBB Mele.
Very comfortable to wear.
Connection is great with AAC from iPhone 12.

Would love an app, volume controls and a smaller case...
I regret not waiting for Fiio UTWS5... even if the TRN is a bit cheaper.

Because there's no app, is there?

Up until UTWS5 with its DAC/amp setup, there is almost no reason to have app. TRN / UTWS3 / WS-1 alike all has an amp chip inside and those don't support app since nothing can be adjusted via software. UTWS5 will be the first that can really benefit from app.

Thanks for answering and explaining. :thumbsup:
Well, with app (EQ) and volume controls on the UTWS5, I'm sold... will order on Amazon when it's available :)
(not that I dislike the TRNs, cause they work rock solid and sound very good)

@ClieOS have you tried UTWS5? I'm planning to get one as a fit it and forget it solution. Appreciate it if you can point me to your impressions if you have shared and I have missed it. Unfortunately, can't locate it

You must have missed my posts on the UTWS5 thread - got my first pair and it turned out to be a lemon, so I am currently waiting for my 2nd pair to come in. Should be here next week.

As far as SQ goes, based my limited experience on the 1st pair, UTWS5 is definitely the best ear hook style adapter out in the market now, bar none.

Yes, I think I did as I was not active on this forum for last 3-4 weeks. Sad to hear about your lemon. Hopefully the new one is good.

Yes, in terms of overall package, I think it's head and shoulders above anything that's available. After my BT20S Pro box went bust, I'm looking for a good quality replacement. Don't want to get another TRN product as my luck with them has been extremely poor (1/8 products I purchased are functional).

Output impedance:
TRN BT30: 3.3 ohm
FiiO UTWS5: 0.4 ohm

Output impedance is a little higher than I like on the BT30, but it is not completely unusable. I'll recommend not to use any multi-driver IEM that are under 24 ohm with BT30. UTWS5's on the other hand is just excellent.
