Speaking of the iQOO brand, I believe everyone is very familiar with it. It has flourished in just four years, and many related accessories have also been developed, including iQOO TWS earphones. Speaking of headphones, at the iQOO Neo8 series press conference, iQOO launched TWS Air Pro, which reduced the total link delay to 88ms. After nearly a month, iQOO TWS headphones made another effort and launched the first generation product of the digital series—iQOO TWS 1.
The outer packaging of iQOO TWS 1 uses cool black as the background color, and the “iQOO” in bronzing fonts highlights the atmosphere of the brand, and a rendering of the product is printed in the middle on the left.
When you take out the earphones, the first impression you get is that they are very compact, a full circle smaller than other TWS earphones, and the weight of the whole machine is only 44.83.
What we got is the color matching of the track version. The charging box is designed with black and yellow contrasting colors. It looks like a pebble. The four corners are rounded, and the surface is covered with polished matte material. There is a function button on the side of the iQOO TWS 1 headset, which can be reset by long press.
Open the battery compartment; the interior is yellow as the background color, matching the classic gray. Through the color conversion between opening and closing, we can appreciate the speed and passion of the track.
The sound cavity of the iQOO TWS 1 earphones adopts an elliptical spinning cone design, which is achieved through highly customized components and precision assembly. Art, to achieve a 30% increase in space utilization.
The weight of a single ear is only 4.98g, which is as heavy as a piece of A4 paper, which reduces the sense of importance when wearing it.
Based on ergonomics, the earphone reduces the volume of the transition between the ear handle and the cavity, effectively reducing the pressure of the tragus on the tragus, does not hurt the ear when worn, and fits the ear canal more comfortably and naturally.
Inside the package of iQOO TWS 1, in addition to the earphone body, two pairs of earplugs, large and small, Type-C charging cable and an instruction manual are also included.
Regarding sound quality, iQOO TWS 1 uses an exclusive self-developed ultra-wideband unit. By introducing new advanced materials, magnetic circuit adjustments, and sound quality adjustments, the frequency response range of the earphones can reach twice that of ordinary sound units. Although it is a single-unit design, the excellent quality is comparable to a dual-unit design.
In the experience, we tested several songs of different styles, such as “The Sixth Sense,” “One I Love,” and “The Ferry.”
When wearing iQOO TWS 1 to enjoy music with a strong sense of rhythm, such as “The Ferry” and “The Sixth Sense,” the bass is abundant, and the sound and rhythm of each instrument can be heard.
Since the earphone uses a 3-fold nanocomposite diaphragm, the treble part is transparent and bright, and the performance is quite good.
There is no distortion in the human voice, and it sounds like the human voice is very close to the ear.
In general, the sound quality of iQOO TWS 1 is more in favor of a three-band balance. The earphones can distinguish the sounds of different musical instruments well, and some good details, such as slight air sounds, can also present their respective information and characteristics. Listening to music is more accurate and natural.
Moreover, even with no audio space, the headphones can produce apparent stereo sound effects, making people feel the sense of freedom and depth of the music.
While using iQOO TWS 1, I wore it for nearly 2 hours to listen to music. Due to the ergonomic design of the earphones and the weight of only 4.98g per ear, I could hardly feel the existence of the earphones at the beginning because the earphones fit closely with the ears. After wearing it for 2 hours, I thought the ears would be a little tight, but it did not reach an unacceptable level. Next, let’s try the noise reduction effect of the headphones.
We wear headphones in the office, and when the noise reduction mode is not turned on, we can hear the rumbling sound of the air conditioner fan mixed with the sound of mechanical keyboard tapping. At this time, the ambient noise we tested was 53.2db.
First, turn on the mild noise reduction, the noise of the air conditioner fan can be offset by about 80%, but the sound of keyboard typing and talking by colleagues around you can still be heard relatively clearly.
Then turn on the profound noise reduction, and the noise of the air conditioner fan has been altogether canceled out; although the speech can still be heard vaguely, the content can no longer be distinguished. You will involuntarily take off the earphones and ask: “Excuse me, what did you just say?”
The profound noise reduction of 49db is already the industry’s most significant noise reduction depth. We can experience it in a headset that costs less than 400 yuan, which has even reached the noise reduction level of a thousand yuan headset. It is enough to see that iQOO still attaches great importance to the noise-reduction effect of headphones.
iQOO TWS 1 supports the latest Bluetooth 5.3 transmission protocol. The new antenna design deeply optimizes the audio processing from the mobile phone to the earphone end, reducing the total link delay to 54ms.
Wearing headphones, I tested the Honor of Kings with iQOO 11S. When I released the big move, I hardly felt a massive sense of separation between the sound and the picture. When playing a chicken game, listening to the sound to identify the position became possible.
The ultra-low latency of 54ms allows users to enjoy a smoother gaming experience. It enables us to better immerse ourselves in movies or videos and improve the quality of the viewing experience.
The battery capacity of a single earphone of iQOO TWS 1 is 53mAh, which can meet the total power playback time of 10.5 hours (noise reduction is turned off), and the battery compartment has a battery capacity of 430mAh.
That is to say, when the two earphones are out of power, the battery compartment can charge the earphones four times. In this way, the earphones and the battery compartment’s overall battery life can reach 40 hours. Even if you listen to music for 2 hours daily, you don’t need to charge the battery compartment for two weeks.
iQOO TWS 1 starts to set from 50% of the battery, charges 72% in 10 minutes, and charges 86% in 20 minutes. After conversion, it takes about 1 hour for the earphones to be fully charged from empty to set fully.
We started wearing headphones to enjoy music at 10:36, adjusted the volume to 50%, turned off noise reduction, turned on the wear detection function, and continued to enjoy music with the default tone until 1:36 p.m. The power of the headphones was consumed from 100% to 87%, and only 13% of the force was finished in 2 hours.
After conversion, the headset’s battery life can reach 10 hours without and 40 hours with the battery compartment. Even if you listen to music for 2 hours a day, you can use it intermittently for nearly 21 days (about three weeks). Of course, if you turn on noise reduction or transparent transmission, the battery life will be reduced.
As a headset priced at 399 yuan, iQOO TWS 1 has achieved a comprehensive balance in sound quality, noise reduction, and low-latency capabilities. It even provides the function of automatic pop-up windows, which is full of cost performance in this price range.
The ergonomic design of iQOO TWS 1 has greatly reduced the volume between the earphone and the ear handle, so that when we wear it tdramaticallyhone, it will not cause excessive pressure on the ear. Even if the music is not playing, you will not even feel the existence of the earphone. In my experience, I did not feel a particularly large ear pressure when wearing the earphone for 2 hours.
Secondly, the chaa tremendous earphones are tiny. The moment you get the earphones, you don’t even have much hope for the sound and noise reduction ability of the earphones.
However, when you experience it, you will be shocked by its sound quality and noise reduction effect.
The 12.2mm large-sized sound unit makes the bass effect of the earphones thick, deep, and powerful, with a strong sense of rhythm, and the vocal part is clear and bright with harshness.
The adaptive noise reduction of 49db has reached the highest level in the industry. Using light noise reduction in office scenes can offset most of the environmental noise. ILightn a busy road, it is recommended to use deep noise reduction.
However, the earphones will automatically adjust the noise reductionprofoundel according to the perception of the external noise environment. We don’t need to do too many tedious operations to switch the noise reduction gear.
It is precise because of the adaptive noise reduction capability, which can better reflTheiQOO TWS 1. You must know that some e at the same price does not even have noise reduction caps because of the adaptive noise reduction capability abilities.
Regarding battery life, the small-sized battery compartment noise-reduction overall use of the earphones reaches 42 hours. Even if we listen to music for 2 hours a day, we can use it continuously for 21 days without charging. It is very durable in such a small size.
On the whole, such an iQOO TWS 1 with full sound quality, noise reduction, and low delay coverall costs only 399 yuan. If you are looking for an affordable and powerful active noise reduction true wireless headset, iQOO TWS 1 is the most suitable choice.
