Digital Walker, the country’s largest retailer of premium gadgets and accessories, recently launched two of the company’s top products, the Truefree 2 and Truengine 3SE, at #TeamOutOfTown for review. Here we believe (honestly):

First impressions

Complete disclaimer: I was always a little outdated in terms of new technology trends – I bought an iPhone 6S Plus in 2018 when the talk of the town was the latest iPhone XRs and XSs. Now the rage has to do with wireless headphones and, thanks to my author, Melo, I will finally try them.

The Soundpeats boxes that were delivered to me a few days ago were a curiosity for someone who can’t leave her wired boxes. On the side of the sleek, simple package was a poster saying the units were designed “for urban sports”, so the first thing I did was tilt and shake my head repeatedly (like crazy) to see if it would fall. No.

The headphones felt a little heavier than I expected and looked well built. The Truengine 3SE features a retro sound equipment look that comes with a matte charging case while the Truefree 2 is more of a fixed standard unit enclosed in ABS plastic with a glossy finish.

Also, I have no complaints about the sound quality and the rubber ear tips sit comfortably in my ears.

How To Pair Wireless Soundpeats

Remove the headphones from the charging case. After that, the left LED will turn white and the right LED will flash red and white alternately with a voice prompt that says “Pair” indicating that the headset has entered pairing mode.

Turn on Bluetooth on your device and select the Soundpeats unit to connect to. The right LED will stop flashing with a “Connected” voice message.
