Built for a wide variety of sports and outdoor activities, the SoundPEATS Q11 Bluetooth Earbuds are an affordable solution for all avid music listeners. The company promises excellent fit and ergonomics thanks to the lightweight construction, flexible earhooks, and well-thought-out design.
Design and build quality
The SoundPEATS Q11 Bluetooth earbuds are crafted from premium materials. Not only does this ensure excellent build quality, but it also keeps the weight so low that you won’t even notice them in your ears. We had no problem achieving a supreme fit every time we tried them, and the provided set of replaceable eartips offers enough options to fit ears of all sizes and shapes.
A nice addition is the LED indicator, which informs you about the current status and battery level. Features like this are often omitted by manufacturers to make weatherproofing a bit easier. Fortunately, SoundPEATS refuse to cut any corners and give you the full range of features without any compromises.
Other things that you find on the earbuds include a micro USB charging port and volume controllers. You can easily change the volume level, skip tracks, turn the earbuds on and off, or answer calls – all with nothing but a press of a button.
The earbuds last around 5.5 hours on a single charge, and it takes them 2 hours to go from a completely empty battery to 100 percent. Yes, there are Bluetooth earbuds that go up to 8 hours on a single charge, but 5 hours should be more than enough for most people, as it equates to five 1-hour long gym sessions in a single week.
The Bluetooth 4.1 technology with aptX work in conjunction with powerful ambient noise reduction algorithms to provide an optimal listening experience and range of up to 33 feet (10m) for skip-free wireless audio. We have found no issues with the signal strength or quality and were surprised by how easy it was to pair the headphones with our smartphones. All you have to do is to turn on Bluetooth and look for “QY11”.
The SoundPEATS certainly value music clarity over bombastic bass delivery and unrealistic sound representation. You will be able to enjoy crystal-clear highs and bass that appears only when it should and ever obscures any other parts of the audio spectrum. It could be argued that these qualities are not what makes the best pair of Bluetooth earbuds for working out, but it certainly makes for an excellent listening experience.
Last but not least, the built-in microphone provides with high enough sound quality so that your voice always comes through clean and undisturbed by outside noise.
