The truke BTG Alpha features a modern appearance. They appear to be comparable to other sets of tws buds in this pricing range. The transparent lid, which we have recently seen on certain TWS alternatives from both realme and OPPO, is what makes it stand out. The earphones themselves resemble AirPods, but the case has a pebble-like appearance. The case and the earbuds are made of high-quality plastic and feature a glossy appearance.
Another highlight of the BTG Alpha is the hidden RGB setup with the case that lights up the carrying case like Christmas Tree. The top lid has a nice click to it, and powerful magnets keep the buds in place inside the case.
Moving on to the buds, they have a long stem, an in-ear design, and are light in weight. Each side of these has 13mm drivers and twin microphones. The extreme in-your-face branding on truke’s tws buds is something we always point out. There is a sizable truke logo on the lid and buds. The USB Type C connector on the rear of the BTGs is used for charging.
The BTG Alpha’s pairing process is simple, and they automatically enter pairing mode when the lid is opened for the first time. All you have to do is go to your phone’s Bluetooth settings, look for the truke BTG Alpha, and pair them.
Moving on to the performance portion of our review, we discovered that the call quality was equivalent to that of the rivals. The BTG Alpha’s dual microphones function as planned and help to eliminate noise. During our brief use, we did not encounter any significant call cutoffs, connection issues, sound breaking, or white noise.
Given the price range, the 13mm drivers in the BTG Alpha produced mostly crisp sound. We generally felt that the sound stage was well-balanced. As is common for headphones in this price range, the bass is still very prominent. The touch areas are sizable, and the commands worked as expected. In our tests, we were able to get just over 8 hours of use with the volume at 50%, while the case added three more charges, which is about in line with the advertised time.
