Overview: Truefree 2 VS Truengine 3SE | Go price range or boujee? 

ONEPple’s AirPods hit the stage in 2016 with too much fanfare, and since then the wireless earbud market has exploded, along with cheaper alternatives offered by competitors like Soundpeats.

Digital Walker, the nation’s largest retailer of premium devices and accessories, recently shipped two of the company’s flagship products, the Truefree 2 and Truengine 3SE, to #TeamOutOfTown for a review. This is what we think (honestly):

First impressions

Full Disclaimer: I’ve always been a little out of date with new technology trends. I bought an iPhone 6S Plus back in 2018 when the city was talking about the latest iPhone XRs and XSs. Now it’s all about wireless earbuds and thanks to my editor Melo I can finally try them out.

The Soundpeats boxes that were delivered to me a few days ago were a curiosity for someone who can’t quite let go of their wired cans. On the side of the sleek, simple packaging was a poster that said the units were designed “for urban sports”. The first thing I did was tilt and shake my head repeatedly (like a madman) to see if it would fall off. It was not like that.

The headphones felt a little heavier than I expected and looked well built. The Truengine 3SE Sports retro-looking audio hardware that comes with a matte charging case while the Truefree 2 is more of a solid standard unit surrounded by an ABS plastic with a shiny surface.

I also have no complaints about the sound quality and the rubber earbuds sit comfortably in my ears.

How to pair Soundpeats Wireless Earbuds

Take the earbuds out of the charging case. Then the left LED lights up white and the right LED flashes alternately red and white with a voice prompt saying “Pairing”, which indicates that the earphones have been put into pairing mode.

Activate the Bluetooth in your device and select the Soundpeats device to be connected. The right LED stops flashing with the voice prompt “Connected”.
