In the last review, we’ve talked about the Ttreblab xr 100, so I decided to follow the line and make a review about the XR 500 as well. Let’s take a look at it and see if this model is really an improvement from the previous version.
Like I said about the xr100, the Treblab xr500 is also a very cheap earbud and if this has any additional features it will be well worth to choose this one instead.
The sound of the Treblab xr 500 we can consider almost the same as its predecessor. However, the bass here is a bit more strong, so if you like heavy bass songs this model is a good choice. The only feature that stands out a bit is the bass, for the rest is just the standard you would expect at this price range.
The aptx technology does the job again and deliver a clearer sound signature, but that’s it.
Durability and design
Everything I said about the xr100 applies to the xr500 here, however, the Treblab XR500 appears to be more sturdy, increasing the durability a bit more. Another difference is that the Treblab XR500 has the ipx-7 protection, which means it is really waterproof. This is useful if you want to to take a bath or swim with your earbuds on. Just like the previous version, I would say the xr500 should last an year, which is fine because the warranty on this model is one year as well.
Comfort and fit
With a popular design, the Treblab XR500 maintains the fit and comfort while you exercise. The ear hooks are soft enough for you to forget you have them on. Also, included in the package are 3 pairs of silicone ear tips and 2 pairs of comply foam ear tips, which is my personal favorite for isolation.
Accessories and battery time
Fortunately, on the Treblab XR500 you can choose between two colors: black or white. There’s also a good variety of ear tips, making the fit and isolation easy. It is also included in the package a hard case for storage. As I said before, there’s a mic with noise cancellation and a remote control for calls and music.
The battery time once more is a strong feature of the Treblab, achieving up to 9h of music playback.
Pros and Cons
- Nice bass
- Comply foam ear tips
- 9h of music playback
- Lacks a good treble
My Rating: 8.9 out of 10
The same I said for the xr100 is valid for the XR500 as well. If you are on a tight budget looking for a cheap Bluetooth earbud, the Treblab XR500 is a great choice. The point here is, is it better than the previous edition? short answer? Yes, it is, but I could find just 3 major differences: Better bass, comply foam ear tips and waterproof protection. If you are considering to purchase it, just think about this 3 differences and what will make a bigger difference for you.
