SoundPEATS Truengine 3SE Wireless Earbuds Review
R.The SoundPEATS Truengine 3SE is a great looking device straight away. With a classic, street-ready look accented by cyberpunk internals, you know you're putting your money in decent headphones that look and sound great.

But what about other mid-range earbuds popping up left and right in the battle for supremacy as the best wireless earbuds? Let's take a closer look:
The Truengine 3 SE is an upgrade of the first Truengine SE model. Sure, SoundPEATS has kept the shape and design of the Truengine line of earbuds, but the difference between the devices is in the sound performance.
The Truengine 3SE offers softer, attenuated mid-tones that give deep bass more space. The combination of titanium-coated speaker and composite diaphragm speaker is great for upbeat tracks and vocals, while the Apt-X-Audio offers audiophiles a clear listening experience.
Design and ergonomics
The Truengine 3 SE housing is mainly made of AB plastic and has an additional rubber coating to ensure a better grip. The earbuds are the same design as the first generation model, but the upgraded structure makes the headset smaller and features a rose gold touch panel, which makes it feel more expensive than other earbuds in the same price range.
One thing, however, is that it's a little more uncomfortable than the older Truengine SE, as it allows for an air gap at the tip of the ear and earbuds that lets in outside noise. The weak plastic knots of the predecessor have been replaced by a matte rubber mount and feel pretty sturdy (Comply Foam tips are also included).
Battery life and consumption
A single charge on the Truengine 3SE gives you six full hours of playback, and the charging case provides an additional four full charges, which adds up to 30 hours of total battery life. This corresponds to an additional playback of 10 hours compared to the input level earphones such as the True Free 2.
It's IPX5 certified, which means the earbuds will withstand sweat and water, and you can use them during lengthy activities like sports and exercise.
Control and connectivity
