And here are the two Tribit act brothers and sisters, more like Strangers. Because the Tribit FlyBuds 1 are trimmed on Bass. According to the Bass for In-Ear headphones is very good, however, the mid - range and treble areas are not able to keep up. There is an imbalance arises. In addition, strong background noises are quite audible, wherein the at head not negative the exception of headphones in this price range, unfortunately.

Even more impressive is that the background noise is missing in the Tribit FlyBuds 3 almost completely. And also the sound quality is mid-priced In-Ear headphones amazingly well. Even in a direct comparison with the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy Buds+ 't had to hide the 3P-model.

battery: 6 hours of audio enjoyment without Charge

Away from the sound quality, the battery life is the most important factor in the case of Bluetooth headphones. Because as soon as the battery is at Zero, there is no longer any question as to the sound quality. With a full tank of cargo with the Tribit FlyBuds 1 up to six, and the FlyBuds 3 can play up to five hours of music. However, if you don't put you in the respective load boxes. Here, the headphones can be recharged, so that they will work in effect for up to 30 hours (FlyBuds 1). This is quite good, however, the 3P Version has a lot more to the box.

Those who prefer In-Ear headphones with a stylish charging case and an IPX8 certification, should resort to the FlyBuds 1. However, the sound quality is not exactly outstanding.
