Nowadays, thanks to the fast progress of the technology, lots of TWS earbuds are able to bring a pretty amazing user experience at affordable prices.
Today, we’ll be checking out the latest SoundPEATS TruePods which now retail for around . Will they be able to deliver a good value for the money? Let’s find out in the full review!
Specs & Features

- Dual mic in each earbud
- 20 hours extended enjoyment

The SoundPEATS TruePods come in a very simple black packaging. Once we lift up the top we quickly have a look at the earbuds case, inside which we find the earbuds themselves. Aside from the two primary tech pieces we also find an USB charging cable and a spare pair of eartips.
The design of the two earbuds is certainly not super innovative or revolutionary. They are indeed inspired by Apple’s AirPods but they definitely aren’t a clone. The design is much more squarish and most noticeably they’re black; no white option here. There are touch controls to turn them on and put them in the various modes. Finally, there is an LED on each earbud which can blink white or red depending on the current mode (pairing, paired, charging).
Meanwhile, as far as the charging case is concerned: it looks very stylish and it’s relatively compact. Earbuds lay horizontally inside and there are two LEDS on the front to show whether the charging case needs charging or its already fully charged. On the back there’s an USB Type-C port for charging.
The SoundPEATS TruePods are equipped with what the company calls high-end speaker with “biological diaphragm enhanced sound”. We aren’t sure what these marketing words mean but, in real life use, they sound very good.
The earbuds feature a clean and crystal clear sound, they’re also relatively loud when volume is set to the maximum. Meanwhile basses are still very present and strong, probably also due to the good sound isolation provided by the eartips. Overall a very enjoyable music listening experience. Same can be said about other type of audios like talks, Youtube videos and whatnot. We’ve never any issues with the sound quality provided by the TruePods.
Moving onto the microphone side, the audio appears to be pretty clear. The dual mic system definitely helps reducing outside noise, thus it’s possible to actually make a call in most environments.
The earbuds by SoundPEATS bring a top user experience. With that we mean you never noticed they’re more affordable than big brands’ counterparts.
Once you pair them with your smartphone, they will always pair automatically when you take out the main (right) earbud. You then take out the left earbud which pairs with the right one and you’re ready to go. It’s all pretty simple and straight forward.
Touch controls make it easy to use them as well. You can double tap the right earbud to pause/play music, double tap the left one to activate Google’s Assistant (or Siri on iOS). Meanwhile if you hold the button you can switch previous or next song. There are also other functionalities you can learn directly on the user manual.
It’s really hard to quantify how good battery life is on these earbuds as every time you stop using them, you put them in the charging case which of course brings them back to 100%. Either way, we believe the 20 hours battery life claim by the manufacturer is actually accurate. That means you would get 4 hours with the earbuds on one charge, while the charging case provides an additional 16 hours of autonomy.
Finally, SoundPEATS smartly decided to provide the charging case with an USB Type-C port. So, you’ll never struggle looking for the right side to charge it back up, a real improvement in “quality of life” over microUSB equipped options.
The SoundPEATS TruePods are a very valid option in their price range. We could even go as far as saying they bring much more quality than you’d expect for what you pay. So yes, we definitely suggest you check them out if you’re actually looking for a pair of high quality TWS earbuds.
