TWS true wireless earphones - under $25
FIVE STARS - There aren't that many cheap TWS truly wireless earphones that offer flawless video synchronisation with YouTube videos on the iPhone. The Anomoibuds Capsule TWS or IP010-A does however, so it's a good thing it offers even more.
Specs of the Anomoibuds Capsule TWS IP010-A:
Bluetooth 5.0 with AAC codec
+-3 hours listening on a full charge
Charging case can charge earpieces fully 3 times
Comes with 3 sizes ear tips and a micro-USB cable
There are more true wireless earphones available under the name IP010-A. Because all are the same, this is also a review on other IP010-A branded models.
Design, charging and comfort
The Anomoibuds Capsule TWS IP010-A are very portable truly wireless earphones. The case is one of the smallest seen in this market, along with the one of the Haylou GT1. It's easy to drop in any pocket and doesn't weigh a thing. Still it holds enough battery to charge the earpieces fully around three times.
In order to turn the earpieces on and connect them with your device, you just have to open the lid off the case and take them out. That goes with a little force due to strong magnets, but it's hardly a challenge. For ones in need of very big ear tips, it's good to know you probably can't store them on your earpieces if you want to charge them. With one of the three sizes delivered ear tips, storing them in the case isn't a problem.
The earpieces itself don't look too fancy, but are well proportioned. They're round and small, making for a comfortable fit. Due to their design, they will stick a bit out of your ear, but it's nothing critical.
Connectivity and controls
The buttons on the side respond well and don't let you press the pieces in too deep because of their clever high placement. Controls are fine too. Press the button once to play/ pause/ take a call, press twice to skip a song. A long press turns on one, turns them both off. If you turn on one side afterwards, you can just use that one - until you turn the other one on again too.
It's not possible to change the volume on the earpieces unfortunately, as is the case with most of the buds in this price category. Oh - and the blue light around the button blinks, even when using the earphones. That's a downside for your bed partner.
Connectivity is good. It holds the connection for around 10 meter and I didn't encounter other connection problems or dips.
Calling and watching movies
Calling is rusty on the Anomoibuds when you're indoor and even worse when outdoor. You're likely to sound tinny for the other end of the line, and your voice may even fade away when you're moving.
The main attraction of the Anomoibuds IP010-A or Capsule TWS, however, may be the perfect audio video synchronisation on iPhone and Android, on services like Netflix but also YouTube, which tends to be very tricky for iOS users. Delay is minimal on video and for gaming. It makes the Capsule standout from its competitors - it's an ideal travel companion for bus and train rides.
Sound: Full and energetic
It's good then, that the Anomobuds Capsule also offers a fairly detailed, engaging sound. Take YouTube videos for example. Compared to the Xiaomi Redmi Airdots which also sync great with video, these IP010-A gives you a sense of the room a video is recorded in. Background details are more audible and especially lows come trough loud and clear. Not just in videos - also in music.
The Anomoibuds Capsule delivers a full sound with a nice hefty bass. When turning the volume up, the bass starts to pump in your ears, with an addictive slam. There's also an emphasis on bass and lower mids, like bass guitars or darker electronic sounds.
It's doesn't rule the rest of the music out, happily. The IP010-A leaves enough room for vocals and higher tones, which are pushed forward and provide the music with some airiness on top of their engaging bass. The sound is full, energetic and in better recordings, instruments can even be placed. The Anomoibuds Capsule TWS offers some of the best truly wireless sound in the category under 25 dollar.
An extremely portable charging case, engaging full sound and perfect video synchronisation, even on iPhone. The Anomoibuds Capsule TWS or IP010-A is an excellent deal for its price.
