A few weeks ago, I received the new True Wireless headphones from Ugreen. If you still don’t know this brand, we recommend that you take a look at their products. In PCWorld we were able to test several of them: power banks, chargers and headphones and the truth is that they generally offer pretty good value for money.
The HiTunes are not left out: for less than 40 dollars, you get very good quality headphones.
The first impression upon opening the box was positive: despite their price, they offer a rather premium feel. The box also includes its USB-C charging cable and spare ear pads so you can find the one that best fits your ears.
The crate is quite small, which makes it ideal for transporting it from one place to another without taking too much. It is true that in models of other brands, these charging boxes, being larger, also offer more battery.
However, in my case, I prefer the box to be smaller even if for that I have to sacrifice a few hours of autonomy. In the end, it’s a device that I’ll take with me when I go out, I don’t care if it’s heavy.
This does not mean that the battery is of poor quality. With a single charge, we were able to listen to 5 hours of playback. Its charging case allows you up to 24 hours, a figure that’s not bad at all.
On the other hand, it is also worth mentioning the speed of its charge. In just 1.5 hours, the case is fully charged. And if you’re in a rush, you’ll only have to charge 15 minutes to get an extra hour of battery life.
Comfortable and attractive design
Ugreen tends to take great care in the design of its products, as can be seen in the HiTune. The crate, as we have explained, is quite small.
Its oval shape gives it an elegant touch. You can find the charging socket on the back, as in most devices of this type. On the other hand, the brand logo rests on the upper part.
The headphones mimic Apple’s protruding design. It’s something you like or don’t like, there are usually no middle terms. I’ve heard opinions from people who say that the design that protrudes is horrible and unsightly and so many others say that the protruding design makes them look better.
In the end, it’s all a matter of taste. From my point of view, I have no problem, I like its design. Wearing them for hours reassures them, even when I’ve been exercising with them.
They are comfortable and light, they do not bother you or disturb you at any time. And yes, I like the Apple-style design that sticks out slightly downward. I’d rather if I’m wearing headphones and someone talks to me and I don’t answer them, they see I’m wearing them.
Decent audio quality
When analyzing them, you have to take into account their price, obviously they won’t offer the same quality that a headphone model offers you over 100 dollars, however, this does not mean that the quality of the HiTune is bad. .
Otherwise the opposite: it’s pretty good for its price. They are easily paired via Bluetooth with your mobile phone or any device with Bluetooth.
Then you just have to start playing the music or audio you want and you will see what that says about the quality. No distortion is perceived, you can hear fairly clear vocals and treble, and the bass is quite strong.
They offer noise cancellation yes, but make no mistake, it is not active noise cancellation (ANC), if not passive. Active noise cancellation dramatically increases the price of headphones as it has to incorporate technology responsible for canceling ambient noise.
On the other hand, passive cancellation uses the design to become a device capable of isolating as much as possible from outside noise. In this case, while the undo isn’t as bright as in other devices, it’s pretty good. But above all, remember that this is a passive cancellation.
Price and availability
You can buy the headphones on Amazon for 39.99 dollars or, if you prefer, on the Ugreen site. They are currently available for purchase, so you won’t have to wait.
Its price is quite affordable compared to other brands and the truth is that, as is often the case with Ugreen products, its value for money is very good.
