Edifier TWS5 Truly Wireless Earbuds are a pair of classic true wireless Bluetooth earbuds that confront the three major complaints from true wireless earbuds consumers: bulky size, insufficient playback time and inadequate radio frequency range. The TWS5 earbuds are compact and ergonomically fit in the ear cavity for a secure, comfortable user experience. With up to eight hours of playback time on a single charge, multi-function tap controls.
In the ear, these feel comfortable, but they are compact and that made me feel they were coming loose which isn’t great. The true wireless experience hinges on a good, secure fit, and that can be hard to predict when shopping for in-ear headphones.
Edifier TWS5 True Wireless Earbuds Features:
- TrueWireless(tm) Stereo Plus with Bluetooth 5.0 aptX for better connectivity and easy pairing
- Up to 32 hours of battery life with magnetic charging case.
- Up to 10m (30ft) connection distance (with walls)
- cVc noise reduction for better mic quality
- Listen with one or both earbuds without losing sound channels
- Ergonomic and splashproof with touch controls
- Improved wireless signal distance
- Automatic connect and shutdown features
One attraction for me with true-wireless headphones is the battery life and Edifier have put a lot of effort into this, with fast charging of the case which itself holds three full charges for the headphones. That means a total of 32 hours of battery life.
Automatic on/off toggling when removing the headphones from the case is useful but on occasion, the headphones haven’t automatically connected. But as with most Bluetooth headphones, it’s not hard to power off and on the earpieces to re-connect. The TWS1 includes 6mm bio- diaphragm units to provide rich sound details and an exceptionally better sound for the listener. The embedded silicon microphone is highly sensitive, picking up the user’s voice for clearer call quality
The sound experience on these headphones is good, with a 6mm dynamic driver delivering bass and detail in the compact earbuds. I have been impressed by the consistent signal when I used these over longer distances which means I don’t miss a word of my podcast when I’m making a cuppa.
Edifier has produced a nice looking product that performs. I don’t rate the feel or the fit, but they look great, and the tech inside has been developed well. For me, they work very well for use at my desk and around the office.
