Pairing with your phone or laptop also takes very little time thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 and there is also voice confirmation telling you about what’s going on with the pairing options.
Nokia’s True Wireless Earbuds offer deceivingly good audio quality given just how small they are. The bass is rich and weighted, yet not too mid-heavy, and they also deliver clear highs for vocals and more intimate tracks. Admittedly, large orchestral or film score pieces, when listened to above average volume, expose the earbud’s inability to play larger sound stages with many multiple instruments and audio levels.
Telephone calls on the earbuds work considerably well but, when using the earbuds in very windy outdoor areas, the people on the other end of the line did have difficulty hearing me. This is probably down to the placement of the earbuds microphones being so physically far away from my mouth given their very small form factor so it’s just something to be aware off if you take a lot of calls whilst out and about or whilst jogging etc.
Nokia claim that these earbuds can last for 3 and a half hours of music playback on a single charge and, given the tiny form factor and 5 grams weight of each earbud, we were slightly skeptical. Surprisingly, having used the earbuds for a while now, we can confirm these earbuds live up to this claim. Placing them into their charging case, you’ll be able to add 14 more hours of music playback which is very handy to get you through a good few days of average use without having to worry about charging them.
Overall, we were pleasantly surprised by how good these True Wireless Earbuds were from Nokia. Back when they were officially unveiled, we were fans of their tiny form factor and ergonomic carry case but we weren’t sure if they could deliver on the audio front. Having tested them for a few weeks now, we’re really impressed with how good these earbuds sound and the battery life isn’t too bad either!
