Apple is a brand that can truly be described as ‘revolutionary’ in the technology and gadget world, and it has been the first brand to introduce a lot of gadgets that did not previously exist, in the market. One such gadget is wireless earbuds. While Apple introduced the wireless earbuds in the market, a lot of people could not get them because of Apple’s sky-high prices. This led to other brands quickly jumping on the bandwagon and coming up with earbuds of their own.
As more and more the smartphone is changing, the makers are doing away with some previously crucial aspects of it, like the headphone jack. As more and more brands ditch the headphone jack on their phones, the customers will have no option but to opt for wireless headphones and wireless earbuds. This creates a huge market for these wireless earbuds, and companies are coming up with earbuds that are packed with a plethora of features and at affordable prices.
The Noise Shots X5 truly wireless earbuds are one of the newest wireless earbuds in the market currently, and they have already created a stir in the market. The company claims that they are one of the most comfortable earbuds in the market and that the audio quality produced by these earbuds are top-notch. They are priced at Rs. 4,999, but you can easily get them for much less online.
Features of the Noise Shots X5 Truly Wireless Earbuds
1. Construction, Design, and Build
The brand Noise has been around for quite some time now and recently has been catching the attention of the masses because of its affordable yet high-quality products. The Noise Shots X5 truly wireless earbuds are a strong example of the quality and top-notch products that this brand releases.
The earbuds are kind of chunky, but the rubber coating at the bottom of the earbuds makes it very comfortable to wear. The earbuds have a LED light on them, but it is not in your face and is quite subtle, and they do not keep flashing when you are using them. Another interesting and useful addition to the Noise Shots X5 earbuds is that they have a small rubber hook in each of them, and this rubber hook helps the user get an easy grip on the earbuds while wearing them.
One thing that might put off some people is that the Noise branding on these earbuds is quite loud, which might be somewhat unappealing to some people.
The back of the earbuds consists of a multi-functional button, but unlike some earbuds, like the Xiaomi Mi Eardots, these earbuds do not come equipped with a touch-sensitive key. Instead, the Noise Shots X5 is equipped with physical buttons that are quite effective and easy to use. The physical buttons can prove to be quite a perk in a pair of wireless earbuds, as the chances of a touch-sensitive key malfunctioning are much higher than in a case of a defective physical button.
The multi-functional buttons of the Noise Shots X5 are quite easy to use but might take a few uses to get the hang of it. To play or pause the music, you need to press either side of the earbuds once, and this works even while answering or rejecting calls. Double pressing this button activates Siri or the Google Assistant, based on the operating system of the user’s device. Long pressing the left earbud takes you back to the previous song and long-pressing the right earbud shifts to the next song. These added functions of the earbuds can come in quite handy, especially when the user is busy or in a crowded place and does not want to take their phone out.
The charging case has a matte finish and it has the branding of Noise on the front. The case itself feels soft to touch, and even though it is of an affordable-mid range price, the quality, look and feel of the charging case oozes luxury and premium quality. It is somewhat hefty and comes with an impressive battery of 2,200 mAh, which gives your earbuds a pretty long battery life. The charging case has a USB type A output, which allows you to charge other devices with it too.
A very impressive aspect of the charging case is that it comes equipped with magnetic points that ensure that your earbuds are locked in place and safe while in the case. Once you put the earbuds in the case, it immediately starts charging.
Wearing the Noise Shots X5
The Noise Shots X5 truly wireless earbuds are pretty easy to use and are a pair of user-friendly earbuds. All you have to do is open the charging case and take out the earbuds. Next, you need to turn the Bluetooth on your device ON, and the earbuds connect automatically to your device.
The Noise Shots X5 earbuds are very impressive when it comes to connecting with a device. All you have to do is open the charging case of the earbuds and pair your earbuds with the Bluetooth of the device that you plan to use. The Noise Shots X5 earbuds come equipped with an Airoha chipset and it supports the Bluetooth 5.0 version. It is also equipped with an A2DP and a Digital Signal Processor, and these ensure that the audio quality of these earbuds is top-notch and seamless.
Pairing the Noise Shots X5
After opening the charging case and taking out the earbuds, white light can be seen on each of the earbuds, which shows that both of the earbuds have been paired to each other. This step of pairing the earbuds to each other is to ensure that both the left and the right audio channels are ready to be used. Once the earbuds have been paired to each other, a soft chime will notify you.
The next step is to connect to the device of your choice and you can do it once the red and white light on top of the right earbud starts blinking. The process of pairing the earbuds with a device is pretty easy and effortless.
The connection of the earbuds itself is pretty reliable, and it holds strong for up to a distance of 10 metres. However, if you move about a lot, or keep one earbud away from the other, you will notice some static in the audio, which can be quite irritating at times.
The quality of the audio output is undoubtedly the most important feature of earbuds. The audio quality of the Noise Shots X5 is top notch and certainly does not disappoint you. The audio that these earbuds produce is impressively well balanced, and has a strong base, while also being well rounded in all the other genres. The sound quality is very rich and crisp and is sure to take you by surprise because of the high quality of audio output you get at such an affordable price. There is no log between the audio produced by the left and the right earbud, even when you are streaming content on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or even podcasts.
The Noise Shots X5 gives you the experience of punchy bass, so much so that you can discern the bass line even in the middle of powerful guitar riffs. The earbuds are also capable enough of handling even loud volumes surprisingly well, and the audio is not distorted or peaked and is instead very well rounded and pleasant.
Quality of the Voice Calls
Another aspect that makes the Noise Shots X5 particularly amazing is that it comes equipped with a stereo calling feature. This feature allows the call voice to be heard with both earbuds, which is not a feature seen commonly in budget earbuds. Another feature of the Noise Shots X5 is that it is the earbuds which receipt the sound from the phone, which ensures that the battery consumption is comparatively low.
However, one issue with the Noise Shots X5 is that only the right earbud contains the mic, which means that there is no noise cancellation mic on the left earbud. This can lead to disturbances and interruptions due to external noises during a call.
Comfort and Wearability
Comfort is a big factor in a user’s decision to buy a pair of wireless earbuds. A pair of wireless earbuds give you freedom from detangling wires, or wires getting caught somewhere. The Noise Shots X5 is a pair of truly wireless earbuds, and it does not disappoint.
The earbuds by themselves are somewhat chunky because of the big battery, but this does not make them uncomfortable at all. The earbuds are pretty soft and smooth, and they sit in your ears snugly. You can go for a jog, or get in a heavy workout without ever having the fear of your earbuds slipping out. An added bonus with these earbuds is that they are sweatproof, waterproof and splash resistant, so you can use them without worrying about damaging them.
One of the main highlights of the Noise Shots X5 is its 2,200 mAh capacity charging case. This kind of strong battery is not seen in budget earbuds usually, and it is definitely a perk. Once fully charged, the charging case has the capability to charge the earbuds up to 15 times, if it has not been used to charge any other devices.
The earbuds themselves have a 60 mAh battery each, and Noise claims that they can give a battery life of around 4 hours on just a single charge. However, after using it, we see that the earbuds will give you a battery life of up to 3.5 hours on one single charge, which is not bad at all too.
Charging the Noise Shots X5
The charging case has magnetic points in it, which ensures that the earbuds are locked in snugly once you put them in the case. As soon as you put them in the case, the charging case starts charging the earbuds.
Resetting the Noise Shots X5
In case you feel the need to reset your Noise Shots X5 earbuds, follow these steps:
- Remember to charge your earbuds before resetting them.
- Forget/Delete your earbuds from your Saved Devices on your phone’s Bluetooth.
- Take both the earbuds out of the case without pressing any button and tap both the earbuds three times at the same time.
- Long press both buttons till the light do not switch off completely, and then place them inside the case for a few seconds.
- Take both earbuds out of the case and pair them with your device again.
- Double press both the earbuds buttons together and ensure that the double pressing speed is fast. Once that is done, you will notice that the right earbud will blink with light while the left earbud will have no light. After this, repeat the pairing process again.
