Soundpeats Q16 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones Review

The Q16’s by Soundpeats are the first set of truly wireless Bluetooth earphones I have ever used. What makes them different to normal wireless earphones is that they have no wire at all, whereas normal wireless earphones have a cable joining each earpiece together. Instead, the two earpieces connect together through a wireless signal, while one of the earpieces connects to a device via Bluetooth.

Are these truly wireless Bluetooth earphones well made?

Yes, they are. Each earpiece is made from a strong plastic but feels nice and light in the hand, which in turn ensures they sit comfortably in the ears. I have not once had to stop and adjust these due to discomfort during use. Both have a very similar design, although one is considered the main earpiece, while the other is the vice earpiece. The right earpiece is the main on and has red colored buttons on the top, while the left earpiece is the vice one and has black colored buttons on the top.

These truly wireless Bluetooth earphones sit around the ears using an ear loop which works very well. You simply place the earpieces around your ears and then twist them into position. Once in position, they sit nicely and without any issues at all.

Since there’s no cable connecting each of the two earpieces together, they each have their own independent 95mAh rechargeable battery built-in. This means the earpieces are capable of 6 hours of use each time. I tested this and can confirm it to be true, but to be honest 6 hours isn’t a lot considering other Bluetooth earphones I have can last up to 10 hours on a single charge. Each earpiece has its own charging port, but can be charged from the provided cable at the same time as it has two MicroUSB connections on the end of it.

Included is a small carry case to keep the two earpieces safe in when not in use and ensure they are also kept together. The small size of this case means its easy to carry around in a bag or a pocket as it doesn’t take up too much space.

Soundpeats Q16 Truly Wireless

Are they easy to set up? Is the signal reliable?

As with most other Bluetooth devices, the initial pairing of this set of truly wireless Bluetooth earphones is quite simple. You simply turn on the main earpiece by keeping the button pressed in for a few seconds. Then on your phone with Bluetooth turned on go to your Bluetooth settings and scan for new devices, when ‘Q16’ pops up on the list, simply tap it and the pairing will automatically happen. Once the main earpiece is paired with your phone, simply power on the vice earpiece by holding the middle button down for a few seconds and once on this will automatically pair with the main earpiece.

The connection between the main earpiece and the phone has been quite stable for me, with no issues at all. I have been able to have these in, while cleaning the kitchen and leaving my phone in the front room, with no phone to main earpiece issues. However, there is a really annoying issue with the connection between the main earpiece and the vice earpiece. The connection suffers from regular short period dropouts of a second or two at a time. This meanwhile the right earpiece continues on as normal, the left one stutters and jumps through audio.

Are the audio and the microphone quality good?

The audio is fantastic of course it is let down by the signal issue I mentioned above. When I get a stable connection the audio is fantastic as it is clear and packs a punch in terms of the bass level. It only becomes awful when you find yourself listening to music clearly in one ear, while the music in the other ear is jumping and skipping. It’s a shame because I do feel like I need to mark against this and I will be. The signal definitely has an impact on the enjoyability of listening to music through these truly wireless earphones.

The microphone works really well for hands-free calls. It should be noted that only the main earpiece is active during phone calls and therefore you won’t hear anything through the other earpiece at all. That said the single earpiece does a wonderful job of picking up my voice and clearly delivering to whomever I on the phone too. It works well with both normal calls and VOIP services like Skype.

Overall

These truly wireless Bluetooth earphones are for the most part fantastic, but they do have a few issues such as the weak battery and the one that really gets on my nerves, which is the signal issue between the two earpieces. That issue alone knocks the overall rating of these earphones down. If this issue was none existent, I would definitely have these at almost full marks.
