I think what I love best about these is the convenience of being able to put them back in the case for charging! The technology behind this is pretty fantastic and I love how well made the buds and the case are- they simply "snap" back into place very easily.
The fit is great and they come with 3 different sizes- I have small ears and the fit of the original pads is perfect. I also love that I can wear one at a time so that I can listen to music or podcasts in the morning while also attending to my 2 kids. And at the gym these are perfect- no more sore ears from headphones that don't quite fit my small head right. I have also never had a problem with them falling out- the fit is "just right."
The battery life has been great so far, the sound quality exactly what I expected. I highly recommend these as a well priced alternative to the overpriced buds on the market!
Of COURSE my husband would leave these in his pocket the SAME day we received them! I was certain they were ruined and I was about to get real angry! I was utterly surprised to find they worked fine. I love that he and I can listen to the same music and not hold our heads next to each other. The price is OK. I have some wire bluetooth earbuds that cost a fraction of the price and sound the same honestly. But I adore the magnetic charging case they come in and that I can charge them while they're being stored or in my purse. I haven't run the battery dead because I am not risky like that I guess. I don't know what the complete battery life would be but after being in the wash, they turned on immediately so that impresses me already. They came with several ear inserts as all of the earbuds do for different ear sizes which is helpful because my husband has smaller ears. I'd recommend them to someone looking for wireless workout buds.
Right from the bat, the audio reproduction and bass on the Tribit X1 wireless earbuds is extremely good. Working as an audio engineer I work with audio every day and I have an appreciation for what they’ve accomplished here. Balance. The sound doesn’t get mushed up and it’s not being overdriven. Obviously... listening to highly compressed music always comprises audio in various ways... You’ll need to set your music services to low compression to get the best experience. The overall design needs some work. They’ve reduced the size of the stub that sticks in your ear canal and opted for a straight design, probably to make it stick out of your ear less. Because of this, i worry that it might become unsealed during high intensity cardio. I think curving the stub to flow with the ear canal might cause less ear fatigue and result in a better fit while still maintaining a flush fit. Again I wish companies would made a flesh colored versions. Tan, Brown rather that Super Black. One annoying thing: The range on the Bluetooth is good although if you bring your hand up to your face or cup your ear the link between left and right ear breaks momentarily. Perhaps they push more data across the Bluetooth link between ears for audio dynamics .... not a show stopper but definitely something to be aware of. The charging case is super cute. Magnets to keep it closed. Transparent top that looks like little eyes while it’s charging. Overall I like them. I think you will also. Can’t wait for version 2
Tribit's entry into the true wireless earbud market is no slouch.
Build Quality - Out of the box, the Tribit X1 feel sturdy and light. Everything here is made out of plastic, but for the price, there are no complaints. The only minor annoyance is the closing lid. While in my pocket the cap slightly swiveled side to side while making a slight noise. This gives the earbud casing a cheaper feel, but I feel that for most people this won't hinder durability.
Comfort - As stated before, the Tribit X1 is a tiny and light set of earbuds. They come with double flanged ear tips that do an excellent job of keeping the earbuds in place even when exercising. They are so light in fact that I have found myself forgetting I have them on a couple of times, Tribit has done an outstanding job here.
Accessories - The accessories included are a micro USB charging cable and three different sized double-flanged ear tips. Other booklets and manuals are also included. Nothing extra but considering the price of these earbuds this is ok.
Sound Quality and Noise Cancelling - The Tribit X1 sound great for earbuds in this price range. They have a balanced sound signature with a very slight bass boost and receded highs. These are not the earbuds for bassheads; however, I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of bass response and good clear mids. I personally prefer the highs to be a little more forward than they are on here but others may find this ok as music at high volumes does not sound harsh. I would say these have excellent sound quality expect, overall they need to be a little more clear. Everything from instrumentals, to voices, and especially the highs sound like they are placed under a thin veil. Considering the price once again these do sound very good. As for noise canceling, they do not offer active noise canceling, but it is not needed here. The passive noise canceling provided by the double-flanged ear tips manage to drown out everything around you even at low volumes.
Battery and Features - The Tribit X1 offer a three-hour long battery life in one charge and up to eighteen hours with the charging case. They automatically connect to any device that has previously been paired when taken out of their case and shut off automatically when put in their case. Each earbud has a single multifunction button to pause, play, and skip forward tracks and have a microphone for calls. Calls are loud and clear, and there is zero latency when consuming media from any device. The charging case itself offers a magnetic design to keep and charge the earbuds and also uses magnets to open and close the cap. They are also sweat resistant and are not afraid to get rained on. Although they offer Bluetooth 5.0 range is subpar, and I find that music does cut-out when my phone is under something. Once Tribit fixes this issue I have no doubt these earbuds will fly off the shelves.
Overall the Tribit X1 is a fantastic pair of earbuds that offer high quality for the price. You'd be hard pressed to find other earbuds that can accomplish what these are capable of.
