Takeaway: Small and lightweight, decent sound, convenient charging case, but slight input delay and short run time.

You’ll receive the earbuds in a hardshell charging case, a 12” microUSB charging cable, two sets of additional sized ear tips, and an instruction manual. The pill-shaped case has a translucent lid and it measures 2.75 inches by 1.75 inches and is about an inch tall. It has a soft-touch silicone body with a microUSB port on the back for charging. The internal battery of the case can charge both ear buds up to 4 times on a full charge and the case take about 90 minutes to charge on a 1Amp power source. There are 4 blue LEDs in the middle to indicate the charge level each representing 25% of charge capacity remaining.

Press the catch release button on the front, and the lid pops open. Inside are the two ear buds, which sit on a pair of metal charging contact pins. When you first receive the ear buds they have battery saver stickers over the charging contacts, so you’ll have to peel off the orange stickers in order to allow the earbuds to charging in the case. The stickers are a bit tough to peel off and may leave a bit of residue behind. When charging in the case the LED on the earbud will be red. The earbuds magnetically snap into the slots so they won’t fall out easily and will shutoff and charge automatically when placed in the case. The slots also aren’t orientation specific so you can put either earbud in either slot.

If you want to check the remaining battery life of the case, just press the button in between the charging slots. When you take the earbuds out of the case, they automatically turn on, the flashing blue and red lights indicate they are in pairing mode. By placing them close to one another, they will pair with each other first. Then on your smartphone, select 'Treblab xGo' in the Bluetooth menu. When paired, the LEDs will occasionally flash blue. The earbud itself measures about an inch by a half inch and half an inch thick. The earbuds are pre-fitted with the medium size silicone ear tips but you can easily swap them by pulling off the old ear tip, then flipping the new ear tip flange up, pressing the sleeve onto the earbud post and flipping the flange back down. Using the correct sized tips for your ears will create a better seal for improved sound quality, isolation, and volume levels. Note that when nothing is playing you may hear a slight buzz of electrical line noise.

The sound quality of these ear buds when listening to music is decent. There’s a surprising amount of bass and the volume can get very loud. However, the higher registers aren’t quite forward enough and mid-ranges can sound somewhat muddy; the audio has very soft edges overall, so as a result the sound has a thick quality that isn’t as crystal clear sounding as live music. The sync between the earphones themselves is quite good however, and I never felt that they were off from each other.

The buttons on the outside of the earbud lets you start and stop music playback with a short press, skip tracks forward and back by double-clicking the button on the left or right earbud respectively. Pressing and holding either button launches the voice assistant on your mobile device. You can also answer and reject phone calls with a press of either button. When paired with a device for watching video I found that there was a significant delay between the footage on the screen and the audio heard in the earphones, by almost a full second, and for that reason I do not recommend these to be used for watching streaming video or movies.

When using both earbuds, you’ll get about 3 hours of continuous listening at medium volume. If you want to extend the usable time, you can use them independently and listen to one at a time for 3 hrs each. These do have IPX4 water resistance so can get a little wet. They tend to stay in your ears and are lightweight so would be good for running or working out. Overall, these earbuds have decent sound for their price range, are portable, and can be charged in their on-the-go case, though the battery life is a bit on the short side, and due to transmitting lag they’re best suited for listening to music or audiobooks rather than watching video.
