Treblab X5 review: design & functionality(opens in new tab)
Our Verdict: Great
Common amongst most true wireless earbuds designed for active use, the X5's feature an in-ear design coupled with an around-the-ear fin for a more secure hold.
The design of the X5 earbuds is both comfortable and solid. They don't dig or cause any irritation when wearing for extended periods, and once in don't move at all during movement or exercise.
The buds themselves have a premium feel as well, with a decent weight that gives them a more solid and durable feel. They are still lightweight, of course, but they feels surprisingly more "high-end" than expected.
Each pair of in-line buttons on the earbuds are responsive and easy to press, controlling both volume as well as track selection. A common setup that works, so why fix what isn't broken?
Treblab X5 review: audio & voice(opens in new tab)
Our Verdict: Good
While the X5's feature signature True-HD sound with Beryllium drivers, the sound quality can vary depending on track and content playback.
Mid and low can be a bit muffled at times while treble playback may get a bit tinny if the volume is set too high, but the sound is clear enough to surpass other earbuds of this price range. You'll be able to enjoy your favorite tracks, podcasts, or audio books well enough with the HD sound playback provided, just don't expect anything on the level of Bose or JBL.
That said, the microphone is solid for standard voice calls and provides clear audio to the end receiver. Our testing with the mic went smoothly for the most part, with little issues in the way of dropping or static playback.
For the price, you get what you expect when it comes to the sound quality of these earbuds. They won't be changing industry standards anytime soon, but the earbuds and microphone do the job and do it well.
Should you buy? Yes
With so many options on the market, finding a solid pair of earbuds is fairly easy at this point. What's going to stand out is quality, both in the audio department and the design spectrum.
Thankfully, for the price they're at the Treblab X5's deliver on both of these well enough for us to suggest them. Audio for the most part is crystal clear and has great range, but as with any other earbud pushing the drivers to their limits will reduce the quality substantially.
Construction wise, these things feel solid and seem built to last. They make a great pair of exercise earbuds or just as a standard pair of everyday headphones, and their solid weight and feel are perfect for on-the-go use.
If you're hoping to grab a pair of cheap true wireless earbuds on a budget without sacrificing sound or build quality, the Treblab X5's are a solid choice.
