When you purchase the SoundPeats Q9A, if you want to sum it all up in a small statement, that would be “you get what you paid for.” What’s good about these is these are a pair of in-ear wireless sports headphones that are sweat resistant. Oh, and they cost really low as well. Aside from that, it is very lightweight and are quite comfortable to wear. They come with a mesh carrying case and a hard carrying case in its package. The only problem is that since it is very cheap, the sound is of the same quality as well.
The SoundPeats Q9A Delivers a Cheap Price Point and an Equally Belittling Audio Quality
The SoundPeats Q9A is one of the several in-ear wireless headphones that are from no-name companies that have stirred quite a presence into the market. This is primarily due to its dirt cheap price. With just about every sport in-ear wireless headphones that are vying for the top-end of the market, the Q9A is looking at the competition at the lower-end.
So what about its sound quality? Simply put, the SoundPeats Q9A In-Ear Wireless Sports Headphones sound just like a pair of cheap earbuds. The sound is no different from Apple’s original white buds that have been shipped together with earlier iPhone models.
The audio sounds recessed, and will distort even at low volumes. It has a harsh edge that are anything more complicated than easy-listening music. However, on the plus side, it is a pair of lightweight in-ear headphone and they do sit quite comfortably inside the ears. But users may find it hard to find a tight seat out of any of the soft-tip earbuds that are included in the package. But just like Beats, it really isn’t designed to have a tight seal at all. Hence, do expect some ambient noise to leak in, and don’t expect to get a huge bass presence out of it either.
As for the battery life, it is rated for 5-hours of continuous use, which OK in any book but it is certainly not great. The headphones can do a full-charge in about 1 to 2 hours using a micro-USB connection. Call quality using Q9A was, again, OK and hearing the callers from the other line turned out fine.
Ultimately, the SoundPeats Q9A are for people who are looking for an in-ear pair that are not looking to break the bank anytime soon, that is of course if they don’t mind sacrificing the audio quality with their really affordable purchase.
