Treblab is coming out with new earbuds and newly launched X11 is part of it … Day one when I saw the pictures on Amazon, I thought of buying these modern looking earbuds with contemporary design …
And of-course being American … I always want to use Made in USA products (as far as possible)
Anyway lets come back to the point:
How I received review unit?
Thanks to TrebLab for proving X11 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Free of cost, I have used them since one month and writing this hands on evaluation for all of you.
I have tried to evaluate each quality that an earbuds are supposed to have like Sound quality, Intuitive use of controls, Bluetooth range, Ease of Paring, Call quality and so on … In this review you can see details of each below.
Just for information:
Amazon rating 4 STARS (52% – 5 Star, 9% – 1 Star) – as on 1st July 2017
(This is the main function of any Headphone or Earbud)
The sound quality of the TreLAB X11 is really very crisp. You can listen to any type of genre and get the best effect with the quality hearing, and the bass especially is loud and clear, after setting up properly.
The only issue with my sound was that every-time you raise the volume up a button, the volume would increase drastically, even though I had just clicked it once. The sound in general increases with each volume bar at too fast of a rate.
Comfort and Fit:
The Earbuds themselves are very light, and are easy to carry around. Personally, with the earplugs that were initially given, were difficult to fit in my ear. After switching between the different pieces of rubber ear plugs, I found that the foam ear plugs were the most comfortable, and easiest to put on. After fidgeting with the earpiece for awhile, I finally got them seated in my ear correctly and it would get easier to put in my ear after that. The ear fins however, were sort of useless, and to me were only helpful for differentiating between right, and left earpiece, rather than helping the earpieces stay in my ear.
Both buttons are fully functional, and are LED lit which give indication that the earpieces are in fact on. There is one quality, nice feeling button on each piece which pauses and plays songs from your device. The earpieces work with many music apps including, Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud, and IHeartRadio. Buttons don’t show any signs of wearing, but may jam once or twice within your use.
The blue light is very very bright, and can be seen from a far distance. They blink each time to notify the wearer that the earpieces are functioning, and switch between colors from blue to red, each time they are about to run out of battery, or when holding them down to connect/disconnect from a device. The lights however, are very bright and can be distracting towards others around the wearer, and look a little strange with the lights going off very rapidly.
The battery is sort of a tough situation because after testing 3 different times, the battery ran out quicker than the last. The first test, the earbuds went continually running music for 5 hours and 43 minutes, the second for 5 hours and 22 min and surprisingly during the end of my use, they only ran for 3 hours and 43 min consecutively after full charge each time. The battery life is sort of poor after much use, however charging only takes around 1 hour and 53 for the right ear, and 1 hour and 23 min for the left ear, which is still relatively short compared to other products on the market.
The TrebLabs charging cord is great how it splits the USB which is provided into two different cords to minimize the charging time, and give the user a little bit more time to save for the earbuds.
The instructions from the Manuel are little confusing and not proper leading me to find out everything myself. The two buttons are the main way of connecting (holding the two buttons together). There were a total of two networks that the earpieces could connect to, however, they only worked properly, if you connected to the second connection, or the left ear first. If you didn’t, the music would only play in one ear and switch no matter how many times you press the buttons
Build quality is quite good, providing rich aesthetic, I am happy with it.
As on now I am continuing using this headset .. as said earlier its good in sound quality, lightweight, contemporary, great build ..
Only issue I faced is reduced battery life, which I need to talk to TrekLab team for … Lets see how it goes ..
