It’s not necessary to spend a fortune on wireless earphones these days and the TWS1 from Edifier are a great example of getting more for your money than you would expect, these glossy little earbuds come in White or Black, with three pairs of silicone ear tips.
Costing less than £50 we were surprised to find the TWS1 has an 8hour playback time from one single charge, which is much longer than many earphones in this range. Combined with the durable and compact charging case this will increase to an overall playback time up to 32hours, with just 1.5hours for a full recharge.
The TWS1 connect via Bluetooth v5.0 aptX for a strong connection with lower latency and up to 10m (30ft) connection distance (with walls). Pairing is straight forward and during our testing we didn’t experience any connectivity issues or delays, walking into the next room or even up the stairs didn’t cause the audio to break up. The earbuds have an IPX5 rating, making them splash and sweatproof, ideal for working out in the gym and safe if you get caught in the rain, the low profile design looks discreet in your ears whilst the ear tips hold them securely in your ears even during vigorous exercises, Running and Burpees for examples.
Multiple included ear tips offer numerous options for ensuring a snug fit, so you can listen worry-free and focus on enjoying the music without them falling out. The touch controls on each earbud can be used to change songs, pause, playback and answer phone calls, the cVc environmental noise reduction helps to improve the mic clarity. The audio can be used in standard stereo or switched to a mono configuration which means you can use just one earbud without losing sound channels and keep one ear on your surroundings at the same time.
The TWS1 use 8mm neodymium drivers and has 16ohms impedance, again the sound quality is better than what you are expecting in this price category, the bass is reasonable, the mid and high tones are well balanced, the high tones can become a little harsh at times but nothing too distracting. If you are looking for a low cost, truly wireless set of earphones the TWS1 are a great choice with their enjoyable sound and long battery life, enjoy your audio without wrestling with wires.
