This time we have a review a little different from what we are used to. Thanks to the Tronsmart brand.
In this case, they have sent us a wireless speaker, Tronsmart Element Mega Bluetooth Speaker, and wireless headphones, Tronsmart Encore Spunky Buds Bluetooth Headphones of the latest generation.
I will talk about the wireless headphones first, and then I will talk about the portable speaker, comparing it with several models I have around here.
First, we have wireless headphones sponsored by the Barcelona player Luis Suárez. They come in an exceedingly apparent little white and purple box.
In the upper part, the headphones and the brand logo are drawn. Below is a drawing of what is included in the package and the features. You can also see the CE (European Conformity) type logo indicating that it has the requirements for European sales.
We see the loading platform on the right side and a small box on the left as we open it. In the box comes a micro-USB cable to plug in the charging pad and a few different-sized ear pads. In the charging station, the headphones are securely fastened.
DESIGN AND MATERIALS
The charging platform and the headphones are made of plastic, with a beautiful design. They are in black with shiny squares on top.
The charging platform has 71.7 mm in diameter and 34.5 mm in height and weighs 70 g with headphones. It has a couple of magnets to keep the headphones well connected when charging.
The headphones are a bit bigger than what I’m used to. It has dimensions of 19.5 mm high, 16.9 mm wide, and 27.5 mm deep, and each earphone weighs 6 gr.
In addition, it adds IPX5 certification that indicates that it is capable of withstanding pressurized water jets, but not dust.
Are they comfortable? How is it heard?
These are wireless in-ear headphones (inside the ear) inserted into the ears and practically isolate you from outside noise. The sound is heard clearly (perhaps the bass is more resounding), and the quality is quite good. The volume on these Encore Spunky Buds is deafening.
Despite their size and weight, these headphones are comfortable and do not fall out of the ear. In addition, they have controls to skip songs just by touching the central part of the headset. It also has a small microphone to be able to use it hands-free or to be able to interact with “Google Assistant.”
This model adds Bluetooth 4.2 for headset-phone synchronization.
To synchronize them, you have to:
Take the headphones out of the charging base, and when an LED lights up, search from the smartphone (via Bluetooth): Tronsmart Spunky and pair it!
In addition, it adds a new technology called “True Wireless Stereo,” which simulates stereo sound in wireless headphones.
The two earphones have a 50mAh battery, and the charging base has a 470mAh battery.
The platform charges slowly. I spent almost 2 hours fully charging it until the LED indicators indicated full payment.
In addition, the headphones alone have lasted quite a bit for the battery (it has not reached 2 hours), and it is advisable to take the base everywhere to deposit them and charge them again.
Unlike Apple’s wireless headphones, these headphones are around €40.
As I opened them, my first sensation has not been perfect. They have seemed extremely large to me, but little by little, and after trying them for several days, I have discovered that they are not uncomfortable or heavy and that their touch button is handy. I also liked that they added a microphone.
On the other hand, the sound quality is good but not great, and I think the fact that you don’t have cables makes the price higher than what you would pay for a headset with this sound quality.
The battery’s autonomy has disappointed me, and the load is slow.
Tronsmart Element Mega Bluetooth Speaker
Now it is the turn of the portable speaker. Unlike wireless headphones, this box is much larger and black. On the front, we can see the logo of the brand and a picture of the speaker. On the back, all the features of the speaker appear.
It also has the CE mark (European Conformity), like the headphones.
When opening it, we can see the speaker wrapped in plastic. If we remove it, we see below a small box with the USB to micro-USB charging cable and a 3.5mm male-male jack cable.
Below is a small black and white manual with instructions for use.
