AUKEY is a brand you might not be familiar with here but today we check out their new true wireless earbuds better known as the EP-T16S which come in a nice presentation kept simple and so is everything else about them.

Small and sleek are the earbuds and so is the charge case that is the smallest one to date in my collection that gives you an extra 8-9 hours of charge on top of the 3 hours on the buds themselves fully charged and these times are on par with their claim which is good.

You get extra tips in the box along with your micro usb charge cable so you are good to go straight away as they came with a 75% charge when I got them but charged them up fully before I got testing.

They are on the smaller size compared to other earbuds out there and ideal for anyone and fit quite well and they do take some external noise out of the equation when you have then tucked into your ear they go in a bit deeper than some which gives you that extra isolation which is great however there is no wings here but they stay secure for me and did not fall out though i was expecting them to on some light running so I was happy with that aspect.

The touch controls are simple to use,Once you take them from the case they are in auto pair mode and will start to look for devices to connect to and the process was a one time set up,sometimes that is not the case with connectivity issues and one side connecting to another all was good here and immediate.

The controls are easy to get the hang of given they are on the smaller size you will navigate easily after using for a little while.

Play and pause is tap either side

Volume up you long touch the right and volume down the left

Skip tracks is a double tap on the right and reverse the left.

Voice assistants is a triple tap on either side, Calls is one tap to answer or hang up and you will hear your phones ringtone through the earbuds.

Wear detection, Music stops when you remove an earbud.

No lag latency.

Sound would be the next obvious question, There is no app which is a let down but overall the music experince is quite good and well balanced to the average ear, As one who has tried and tested countless true wireless they offer good volume highs,lows and mids with a little bass but this is where an app always saves the day but you can use a third party app to modify the sounds to fit your liking, Calls are crisp and clear which is how I would describe music too and the experience overall is good and not a cheap sound which is what you would expect from a pair of true wireless at this pricepoint.

These are available in Black and White.
