Tronsmart Spunky Beat True Wireless Earbuds 2020 Latest Updated Review
The Tronsmart Spunky Beat True Wireless Earbuds Qualcomm chip provides consistent and lossless audio streaming, thus ensuring excellent performance.
The Tronsmart Spunky Beat come in a box that’s very similar to the one the Spunky Pro came in. It’s purple, orange, and white, and if you’re not looking closely, you might think it’s something from MetroPCS.
Opening the box, there’s cardboard and a couple of foam inserts that contain the earbuds, charging case, cable, and replacement tips.
The user guide is at the bottom of the box. It’s all very organized and Tronsmart definitely gets points for presentation.
On one side, there’s a faux-leather strap that doesn’t really fit with the matte-plastic design of the case itself. Moving to the front, there are some handy charge-indicator lights that tell you how much charge the case has left.
Battery and Charging
Tronsmart advertises up to 7 hours of playback on a single charge
That’s a pretty big claim for relatively tiny earbuds. Does it hold up? Unfortunately not, at least for me. I can only really get about 4 hours of playback before they die on me, and my volume is usually below 50%.
Now, there’s a really good chance that my unit’s 4-month extended stay in my school’s post office has something to do with this. But just be aware that there’s a possibility that if you buy these, you’re not going to get 7 hours.
Aside from that, though, for the size of these things, 4 hours of playback time really isn’t that bad.
If you carry the charging case with you, they charge pretty quickly, so a few minutes of charging should get you an extra hour or so of playback time.
Since the Tronsmart Spunky Beat are earbuds, and literally the only thing earbuds do is make sound, you probably want that sound to be good. Well, good news.
Compared to the Spunky Pro, the Spunky Beat’s audio quality is amazingly improved.
One of the problems I had with the Spunky Pro was the audio quality.
To me, there was too much bass and everything ended up sounding somewhat muddy because of it.
The Tronsmart Spunky Beat have a much more balanced audio profile. There’s still plenty of bass, but it’s actually possible to hear subtle mid- and high-range sounds
Appearance, Materials, Elements Configuration Build Quality
The appearance of the headphones is generally modest. The case outside is some kind of mixture of matte plastic and soft-touch. It does not look expensive, which is to be expected. But the cover is practical.
The charging case has industry average dimensions. You cannot call it miniature, but I saw larger options. Even from Tronsmart.
The design of the case as a whole is standard – a slightly flattened oval capsule with the manufacturer’s logo on top. But a boring appearance is diluted with several unusual elements.
The first is a short artificial leather strap.
Ergonomics and control
In terms of convenience, this headset is simply superb. It’s not the smallest, but very close to that.
The earbuds fit perfectly in the ears. Ergonomic shape helps. In my personal case, the headphones do not protrude from the auricle.
I can even lie on the side with my head on the pillow and hardly feel any inconvenience. You can also use the headset without problems in the cold season – under a hat or a dense hood.
Touch control in itself has both pros and cons. Ease of control functions with a light touch, but accidental clicks do happen.
The headset can work in both mono and stereo modes. The headphones are paired with each other from the factory.
At the first pairing, we first connect the first (any) headphone to the smartphone. It becomes the main one. Then we get the second one and it also connects to the smartphone.
In the list of connected devices, exactly 2 copies of the Tronsmart Spunky Beat are displayed, which is normal.
This headset provides almost the best connection quality from all the TWS headsets that I tested. Even very expensive specimens are prone to sudden breaks during the transmission of the audio stream.
This usually happens in difficult conditions, mainly on the street – in public places where there are many Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connections and many working devices – phones, smartphones, laptops, mobile operators, in short, where the air is littered or there is strong electromagnetic interference.
For example, my colleague is experiencing constant problems near the tram lines.
Music streaming is interrupted for a split second or one of the headphones “falls off” for a while.
