VERDICT

You would be hard-pressed to find a better combination of sound quality, durability, and design than the TROND Edge Bluetooth earbuds. While the issues with microphonics can sometimes be annoying, they shouldn’t detract you from purchasing the earbuds.

No, these are not the official earbuds for the movie Tron; instead, these are one of the most popular affordable Bluetooth earbuds on the market. They promise to combine great sound with attractive, sweat-proof design for a price that’s hard to beat. Because we always like a good bargain when it comes to Bluetooth earbuds, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to take a closer look at the TROND Edge wireless earbuds and see how they perform.

Design and Build Quality

The TROND Edge come in a very simple package. The top side shows the name of the product, and the bottom side of the box has a useful diagram of the button layout that teaches you what each button does. This way, you don’t even have to study the manual to understand exactly how to use the earbuds and get the most out of their functionality.

The Edge weight only 0.5 ounces, which distinguishes them from many other water-proof Bluetooth earbuds on the market. The IPX4 rating guarantees that neither dripping sweat or heavy rain will cause any damage. We have tested the earbuds by spraying water on them and can confirm that they just kept on playing without any loss of sound quality.

The flexible cable is fitted with a convenient locking mechanism that acts as a clip that is hard to move when putting pressure to adjust either side of the cable connecting to the earpiece. Not only does it allow you to adjust the length of the cable, but it also reduces bouncing during running to a tolerable level.

The built-in battery lasts up to 7 hours of uninterrupted playback time and around 6 days on standby.

Sound Quality

The popular combination of the latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology with A2DP enables you to enjoy high-fidelity stereo music and clear speech while being up to 10 meters away from your Bluetooth device. That’s certainly a good news because listening to the TROND Edge Bluetooth earbuds is a very enjoyable experience. Despite their affordable price, they sound better than many 3-4 times more expensive models.

The main issue the TROND is the tendency of the cable to transmit a lot of unwanted noise all the way to your ears. More dynamic sports, where you jump around can quickly become difficult to perform. What helps is increasing the music volume, but that could lead to long-term ear damage if you overdo it.

What’s in the Box?

When you purchase the TROND Edge Bluetooth 4.0 Sport Stereo Headphone, you get one USB-to-Micro USB charging cable(1.64ft/30cm), 2 pairs of ear cushions (S/L), 2 pairs of double-layered ear cushions (S/L), 4 pairs of ear tips (S/S/L/L), welcome guide, and a 30-day money back guarantee.
