Performance: Impressive Sound Profile and ANC

With 10mm dynamic driver units, Bluetooth 5.3 support, and three preset EQ modes, the Truke Buds A1 offers an unmatched sound profile in its price segment. The hybrid ANC performance is decent, capable of suppressing up to 30dB of ambient noise. ENC support for voice calling is also efficient in isolating surrounding noise.

Gaming Mode: Acceptable Low Latency

The Buds A1’s Gaming Mode offers a low latency of 50ms, providing a decent experience when playing games like Call of Duty mobile. However, for dedicated gaming earbuds, Truke’s BTG X1 is recommended.

Battery Life: Long-lasting Playtime

Truke Buds A1 Review 2With a 40mAh battery on each earbud, the Buds A1 can last up to 8 hours on a single charge, or 5-7 hours with Active ANC. The charging case’s additional 300mAh battery pack offers up to 48 hours of playtime without ANC.

Lack of App Support: Room for Improvement

The only downside to the Truke Buds A1 is the lack of app support, which makes navigating multiple EQ presets, ANC, and transparency modes confusing. Hopefully, Truke will introduce a dedicated app for its TWS products soon.

Conclusion: A No-Brainer Purchase

Truke Buds A1 Review 3Priced at Rs 1,499, the Truke Buds A1 is an unbeatable entry-level TWS with ANC. The impressive sound profile, good build quality, and IPX4 water resistance rating make it a great choice. Although the lack of app support is a drawback, the pros far outweigh the cons, making the Truke Buds A1 a highly recommended purchase.
