TWS true wireless earphones - under $50
FIVE STARS - Great sound quality with lots of soundstage and bass, on top of good functionality. The Tranya T3 has a challenging fit, but is a great pair of wireless earphones for lovers of a big fat bass.
Specs of the Tranya T3
Design, charging and comfort
It's easy to separate the design of the Tranya T3 from its competitors. The big, grey earpieces have a huge center button that consists of a metallic mirror, making the earpieces almost look like jewelry in your ear. It's something you may or may not like.
The case too, is quite big. Less portable, but capable to charge the earphones fully seven times. The pieces itself have a great battery life as well - dependent from your volume, anywhere between 4 and 6 hours it seems. It also shows the amount of battery included, from1 to 4 lights on the case. Perfect.
A bigger challenge than its looks, is the bulkyness of the earpieces. It resembles the many wired over-ear earphones that stormed the Chinese market the last years, where manufactureres put in more and more audio drivers, making earpieces bigger and bigger. The T3's earpieces are certainly bulkier than most earpieces, and will not fit everyones ears. I personally felt the bodies in my inner ears the entire time. Nothing unbearable, nothing really comfortable either.
Until you have to press the buttons a few times that is. Pushing those large bodies deeper in your ear, can be a bit painful in the beginning and can change the sound a bit while you press them. I had to take the earpieces out once in a while to relieve some pressure.
Connectivity and controls
The control scheme of the Tranya T3 is neat. Of course, a single press plays or pauses a track, or takes a call. By pressing twice on the right piece, you increase the volume, pressing the left one twice, decreases it. Skipping a track is possible by holding the right earpiece until you hear a beep, activitating your voice assistant is done with three presses.
The controls do change if you only want to use one earpiece, but still - this is how it's supposed to be. All important controls are on your ear.
The Bluetooth 5.0 connection is great on the T3 too. It holds a steady connection around 10 meters, also when moving or on the move.
Calling and watching movies
Watching movies with the Tranya T3 shouldn't be any challenge on Android phones, yet the audio doesn't sync completely with YouTube on iPhones unfortunately. The audio lag isn't terrible, but it is still noticeable when you try to read lips.
The call quality of the T3 is a pleasant surprise, especially considering the lack of stems on the design. The other end of the line will hear you clear and stable, and environmental noise doesn't rule your voice out completely.
Sound: Bassy, spacious and detailed
Sound quality is where the Tranya T3 shines. Especially in the bass department. Whether you're listening to classical pieces, modern genres like pop, dance or hiphop: the T3 offers a great sense of stage and space. Details are coming in from up close and up far. In better recordings, it's easy to place the different instruments around you.
Coming from the 25 dollar class leaders such as the QCY QS1 and the Anomoibuds Capsule, the Tranya T3 offers a bigger stage and more precise instrument placement. There's plenty of airiness and detail in the sound, especially in the lows and mids. The highs are a bit rolled off, giving the T3 a somewhat darker sound than competitors like the Sabbat E12 and the QCY, but still offer plenty of detail.
The bass on the Tranya T3 is just ‘big’. It offers a heavy thump in music genres demanding it, and even sometimes when you're not expecting it. Sub bass is impressive as well - with James Blake's Limit to Your Love reaching those intrusive levels in your ears. There's decent bass texture in less crowded tracks and the bass is definitely quick enough to make you want to dance.
The T3 has a warm sound, with emphasis on instruments like bass guitars, basses and darker electronic tones. Yet the lower mids are perfectly separated from the other instruments still, and music rarely sounds congested. The Tranya T3 sounds a bit dark, but definitely impressive on top of its big deep bass.
The Tranya T3 offers great battery capacity, puts all the rights controls on the earpieces and most important of all, offers an amazing sound quality for the price. If you're into a big fat bass, definitely try them out to see if they fit your ears.
