Journey Gadget: SoundPEATS TrueFree 2 True Wi-fi Earbuds Assessment
THEIn the past few years SoundPEATS has made some of the cheapest wireless earbuds – a range of devices that are becoming increasingly popular – that deliver good quality sound. The SoundPEATS TrueFree 2 is one of its first flagship products and is no exception.
The packaging includes a type C charging cable, three pairs of silicone earplugs, two pairs of wing tips, an instruction manual and a guarantee certificate
The TrueFree 2 is available for 1,890 euros (the lowest price so far) and plays in the lower market segment among competitors such as Sabbat, House of Marley and Haylou. Still, it’s an impressive case in itself.

What’s in the box
TRUEFREE 2 inclusions
- 1 x SOUNDPEATS TrueFree 2 wireless earbuds
- 1 x charging cable (USB Type C)
- 1 x charging case
- 6 x interchangeable ear tips
- 1 x user manual
The bespoke ear fins on the TuneFree 2 TWS earbuds provide a secure fit
The TrueFree 2 has a built-in 6mm biocomponent diaphragm driver that delivers finely tuned sound with good clarity and low distortion. It doesn’t offer noise cancellation, but has solid bass dynamics.
A pair costs a fraction of the price of premium earbuds (like Apple’s Airpods and Samsung’s Galaxy Buds +) but are competitive in terms of audio finesse and sound balance.
Design and ergonomics
The Truefree 2 is a solid standard unit encased in glossy ABS plastic
The TrueFree 2 features exclusively manufactured ear fins with rubber wings that are powered by Freebit to provide a custom fit. Although this prevents the device from falling, the rubbers lead to a fairly sharp corner which then digs into your ears, making the first hour of wear a little uncomfortable.
In terms of design, we feel the TrueFree2’s charging case would have felt higher quality if it had come in a matte finish (which we loved on the True Engine 3SE) instead of the standard AB gloss plastic. However, this is a personal preference and some consumers may actually prefer a touch of gloss in their devices.

It’s IPX7 certified, which means the earbuds will withstand sweat and water, and you can use them during lengthy activities like sports and exercise.
Battery life and consumption
Battery life is competitive too: a single charge gives you four full hours of playback, and the charging case offers an additional four full charges, increasing the total battery life (and in your pockets) to 20 hours.

Control and connectivity
The TrueFree 2 has an on-ear button control instead of touch panels, which enables precise operation when changing tracks, adjusting the volume, handling calls and activating the voice assistant.
You play or pause music with a single touch. Press right twice to increase the volume and left twice to decrease it. You hold the right bud for 1-2 seconds to skip to the next song. Press and hold the left button for 1-2 seconds to return a track. Finally, you can activate the voice assistant on your phone by pressing a button three times.
The SoundPeats TrueFree headphones connect to your hearing aid via Bluetooth 5.0. This allows two wireless headphones to stream audio, providing improved speed and greater range.
