Just got my hands on the Tribit XFree Color Wireless Earphones for review. I must say initially I was excited to check these out and maybe make them my new daily driver, but as I have found with so many Bluetooth headphones the sound quality, consistency and fit are not always great. The best feature of the earbuds is that they have an IPX5 waterproof rating.
Before we get into my experience, let’s cover the basics. The headphones are magnetic so that when you put the buds together you can wear them around your neck and you don’t lose them. Other than that the magnetics serve no purpose. There are an inline mic and controls that start music, increase volume and answer calls. However, I was unable to figure out how to get to the next or previous song using the in-line controls.
Tribit claims that the earbuds have an average 10 hours of listening time. I was at about 60% after three hours. so it probably comes close to that. Pairing was quick and simple with both an iPhone and Pixel.
The earbuds fit great for about the first 30 minutes. After that, they started to become uncomfortable. Now, this could just be me as I have this problem with almost every set of earbuds I have tried. Maybe my ears are just not suited for long-term earbud use?
When there was sound, the sound quality was good. But it was often broken up and at times it sounded muffled.
Overall this is an ok earbud for the price. But comfort and sound may not be what you hope for.
