Jxrev Bluetooth 5.3 Wireless Earbuds

I was struck immediately by the remarkable looks of this all pink headset but appearance is not all they have to offer, not by a long chalk.

I am pleased to see that almost all the latest true wireless earbuds, even the entry level ones, have adopted the latest Bluetooth 5.3 protocol. They are all very similar, stem format, Bluetooth 5.3, USB-C charging and IPX 7 weatherproofing. This one has all these features but priced at £19.99 it is one of the cheapest yet. I am not usually a fan of the AirPod style stem design but it usually does make for superior sound quality as well as a more secure fitting and this is the case here too.

There was a time when you had to pay big bucks to get decent quality True Wireless Earbuds but the introduction of Bluetooth 5.0 seems to have changed all that. Before Bluetooth 5.0 all but the most expensive TW earbuds would continually drop out, crackle, pop and generally prove more trouble than they were worth. Bluetooth 5.3 is even better adding simpler pairing, extended range, better audio quality and lower latency. Bluetooth 5.3 technology is supported by the latest high-end smartphones but of course, the headset will also work with older Bluetooth devices. As technology develops each headset is better than the last and this new set also features USB-C charging and has some of the latest internal circuitry on board.

In the box were the two buds together with a short USB charging cable, a compact sized glossy pink charging case to match the buds, and a well written and easy to read User Guide. Despite the light weight, everything has a quality feel to it but without the weightiness of some rivals.

First time pairing could not be simpler and took just a few seconds. Simply remove the two buds from the case and pair in the usual way to your phone looking for the label J51. Subsequently, taking the buds from the case powers them on, they connect to each other and to the phone automatically, returning them to the case turns them off and begins charging. The case battery can recharge the buds around 5 times. There are LED’s on both the buds and case bud to show charging and connection status and the buds will charge automatically when placed into the case. These stem format buds are easy to remove from the magnetic case and holding the stem prevents accidental button presses, for me a major selling point.

The buds are small, neat and comfortable to wear and sit nicely in the ear. Sound quality is excellent for a True Wireless headset with a very decent level of bass together with clean mid-tones and a sibilance free high end. Calls were clear to hear and easy to make with no dropouts or excessive background noise.

Each bud has a single button on it which can be used to end/reject calls, play/pause music, navigate tracks, alter volume and invoke your phone’s voice assistant. This works well and is easy to use.

Charging is good and fast with a full charge for the buds taking just 90 minutes with the same needed to fully charge the case. The case LED display shows the current battery status of both the case and individual buds.

For the £16.99 price, they are incredibly well priced for the technology available, indeed this headset compares very well with the high-end rivals I have tried as regards sound quality and features. This is a great little headset, that sounds good, looks good – if you like pink -and will certainly not break the bank. It’s an excellent buy.
