If you’re looking for a great all-around pair of earbuds that are wireless, can handle almost anything, and will serve you for many long hours – you shouldn’t look further than Sbode Z10 Bluetooth earphones.

They offer a lot of value, and considering the price, they’re really cheap – so there’s no reason to not get them.

There are a lot of pros and a very few cons which make this decision a no-brainer.

If you’re looking for a pair of earbuds which are Bluetooth, yet have a great battery life, offer rich sound and even come with IPX-7 waterproof feature, you’re at the right place. It might sound too good to be true, but Sbode Z10 Bluetooth In-Ear Headphones offer everything we’ve listed above.

On top of that, they come with a microphone and a noise cancelation feature which is really decent for such portable earbuds. We bet you’re interested, and that’s why, in the rest of this review, you will find almost everything about Sbode Bluetooth earbuds and its features.

Design and Build Quality

The Sbode Z10 looks very stylish, even though they’re fairly minimalistic. The ergonomic design and a combination of red and black color really make them stand out, yet these earbuds will go with any outfit you wear.

These earbuds come with ear hooks that make them suitable for sports and any other recreational purpose. The cable is also really durable and is very thin and comfortable to wear around your neck.

The materials that were used are a robust plastic, wrapped up in a rubberized material that offers smoothness along with protection. The cable is also made from plastic and is wrapped with a rubberized material for better durability.

They even come with a protective case which is really convenient for travelers and people who like to have a place to store the earbuds. It’s made from a carbon-lookalike material that looks premium and is robust enough to protect the earbuds inside.

Eartips are made from comfortable silicone and you will get 3 different sizes to find the best fit for your ears. They are keeping the earbuds snug into your ears while offering noise cancelation feature.

There are no other colors, but even if there were, we think that the black/red would still be the most popular color.

In hands, Sbode Bluetooth earbuds feel premium, just the way they look. Also, you can feel its durability through the protection it has. They’re precisely wrapped up to offer comfort but also a waterproof IPX7 factor.

While they look like they’re suitable for sports, they can be used for anything else, such as yoga classes, running, cycling, or even every-day use. The ear hooks aren’t removable, but they’re comfortable and keep the earbuds in one position no matter what it is you’re doing.

Even though they’re Bluetooth earbuds, they still feature a short cable that connects both earbuds. Cable isn’t very long but is durably made which increases its lifespan.

Surprisingly, these earbuds only weigh about 0.8 ounces, which means you won’t even feel them after a few hours of use.

Sound Quality and Features

Sbode Wireless Bluetooth earbuds feature a very strong bass along with a high definition and quality sound. They really sound great and powerful which is one of many reasons you should try them out.

These earbuds offer fidelity sound quality with the help of EQ’s selection that provides the deepest bass and a crystally clear treble & sound.

It’s suitable for almost everything which includes techno music but also relaxing sounds, audiobooks, and even relaxing sounds that can help you fall asleep or relax during your lunch break.

The connection happens wirelessly through Bluetooth 4.0 which offers effortless pairing with 2 Bluetooth devices simultaneously. This is a really cool feature which allows people to share what they’re listening with their friends. All you have to do is simply connect the Sbode wireless Bluetooth earbuds to another device.

You can distance yourself from the Bluetooth device really far enough since Bluetooth 4.0 version offers the best connectivity so far. Therefore, you can go up to 15 meters away and still get a decent sound quality. However, anything further than >15 meters will make you experience some loss in the sound.

What we really liked is the control buttons. They’re not traditionally placed in a controller that’s attached to the short cable. Yet instead, they’re very wisely placed at the top of the left earbud. There are only 3 buttons, but the options they feature are far more outstanding.

You can do anything from changing the tracks, lowering or increasing volume, answering calls, or pausing music.

The battery is one of the best components of Sbode wireless Bluetooth earbuds. The battery can last up to 8 hours of constant music playing use which really offers a long playing life. However, once you drain your battery completely, it will only take you up to an hour and a half to fully charge the earbuds.

Full charge light indicator is really useful and is also wisely placed so it’s only visible when it’s flashing its color.

Charging happens through the USB to micro USB cable that attaches at the small micro USB port at the bottom of the left earbud. You can charge these earbuds even from a laptop or a power bank battery.

What is in The Box?

The box of Sbode wireless Bluetooth earbuds might look small, but you get a whole lot. When you open the package, you will find Sbode wireless Bluetooth earbuds, the protective case, USB charging cable, 3 different sizes of earbud tips, user guide, and even a customer satisfaction card which can help you get a refund in case you aren’t satisfied with the product.
