Rha Trueconnect Test Real Matte Black

DETAILED INVESTIGATION OF RHA TRUECONNECT

It seems that almost no discussion of the type of true wireless earbuds can begin or end without discussing Apple’s Airpods. When they came out, they managed to tick the right boxes and have since gained popularity. However, this particular analysis concerns a direct competitor of Rha, TrueConnect. With a similar design and a competitive price, this pair of real wireless earbuds directly targets the Cupertino giant’s real wireless offering. Is he able to make a tooth? Let’s find out.

Design and construction

The finesse in the design of the RHA TrueConnect comes from the housing itself.

The U-shaped cover has an overall matte finish and has a hinge design that slides upwards to expose the headphone cover.

The lid is made of metal and the matte finish varies on the hinge and lid, with RHA using a soft rubber coating to increase softness. The sliding mechanism, oddly enough, is satisfactory, and we played with it even when the headphones were not there. The fact that it is a slider should not worry you, because when closing, the mechanism locks in place and is not accidentally opened. In addition, you should not have any difficulties in determining how to swipe, since there is a RHA logo on the right side. The USB-C power supply on the back of the cover also charges them faster than non-USB-C siblings.

In the cover, the headphones and the cover with a small red dot indicate which one should be worn with which ear, only on the cover you do not have it with the alignment. The buttons themselves are made of plastic, but they have the same matte surface, which increases the premium feeling and at the same time remains light. However, due to the same surface, they and the lid tend to retain a lot of fingerprints. The stem that comes out of the earpods is certainly comparable to the design of the Airpods and helps to remove the buttons. While this design is hated by a number of people, it allows companies to place functional parts outside the ear and make smaller buttons.

The included end caps do an excellent job with passive insulation, even more so if you use the available foam caps. They remain firmly in place during intensive training. This, combined with the IPX5 rating and insulation, makes them surprisingly good as gym friends. The oblique nozzles push the sound deep into the ear, which the Airpods lack.

Control

We see the first key idea of Rha Truconnect in the controls. Although the playback pause is quite intuitive with just one tap on one of the headphones, the music control is located on the left earpiece, while the volume control is located on the right. In addition, a double tap increases the volume, while a triple tap leads you in the other direction and the same actions control the playlist in the left ear. This can be a little confusing or downright annoying for most of us. This could have been avoided by installing smaller split buttons on the front of the headphones.

Battery

In terms of battery capacity, TrueConnect is quite phenomenal. With a single charge, we have reached about 4.3 hours, and the change of coverage is more than four times longer, so the total capacity is 20 hours.

This means that with a fully charged suitcase and headphones for beginners and a daily listening time of two hours, you would last ten days without having to turn on the subject. In addition, during these ten days, you only need to charge the headphones yourself for 15 minutes every day to enjoy these two hours, thanks to the Fast Powered function, which exceeds them by up to 50% of the battery capacity in a quarter of an hour.
