Design and comfort
The Truke BTG Storm immediately impresses with its unique, almost triangular design. The earbuds’ housing features prominent Truke branding on the top and a Type-C port located conveniently at the front. An upgrade is evident in the case’s improved plastic quality; however, the earbuds themselves leave something to be desired in terms of material quality.
Upon opening the case, you are greeted by LED lights, adding a touch of tech flair to the overall package. The earbuds also feature red and green blinking lights, adding to the visual appeal. These lights are more than just cosmetic – they offer functional feedback to the user.
Moreover, these earbuds are presented in a stem design, conducive to physical activities like jogging or gym workouts. The fit is secure, ensuring they don’t easily slip out of the ear. The comfort is sustained over prolonged use, making them a reliable companion for your daily workouts or jogging sessions. With an IPX4 rating, the earbuds can withstand sweat or water splashes, making them suitable for sporty, outdoor lifestyles.
Equipped with 13mm titanium speakers, the earbuds provide a pleasing sound output. They perform well at high volume levels, retaining sound quality without any significant distortion. If you enjoy bass-heavy music, these earbuds won’t disappoint. They also perform adequately for watching videos or listening to music at low volumes.
One downside is that the earbuds struggle during Bluetooth calls in noisy environments. While your voice is conveyed clearly to the receiver, the incoming audio is less than satisfactory.
Touch controls are another highlight, allowing for intuitive and convenient operation. A single tap on either earbud can accept or reject a call, while two taps summon Google Assistant.
The earbuds feature Bluetooth 5.3, ensuring fast and reliable pairing. Once initially paired, they auto-connect as soon as the case is opened and disconnect when the lid is closed – a seamless user experience.
The Earbuds’ ENC (Environmental Noise Cancellation) works well to reduce background noise. In quiet to moderately noisy environments, it cuts out 80 to 90 percent of ambient sounds. This performance drops slightly in noisier settings but is still quite effective for this price range.
The Truke BTG Storm shines in terms of battery life. After a week of moderate use, we still had power left in the earbuds. The company’s claim of 10 hours of standalone backup and a total of 50 hours with the charging case seems to be accurate based on our experience.
The Truke BTG Storm offers value for money for those seeking budget-friendly, feature-rich earbuds. With good sound quality, an impressive battery life, and user-friendly features, these earbuds are a strong contender in their price range.
