Travel Gadget: SoundPEATS TrueFree 2 True Wi-fi Earbuds Evaluation
THEFor the past two years, SoundPEATS has been producing some of the cheapest cordless headphones – a piece of devices that are growing in popularity – that offer good quality audio. SoundPEATS TrueFree 2, one of its first products, is no exception.
Inside the box is a Type-C charging cable, three pairs of silicone tips, two pairs of wing tips, a user manual and a warranty card.
Available at P1.890 (its lowest price yet), the TrueFree 2 plays right in the lower price segment of the market, among competitors such as Sabbat, House of Marley and Haylou. Nevertheless, she makes a terrible case for herself.

What’s in the box
TRUEFREE 2 inclusion
- 1 x SOUNDPEATS TrueFree 2 Wireless headphones
- 1 x Charging cable (USB Type-C)
- 1 x Charging case
- 6 x interchangeable ear tips
- 1 x User Manual
TuneFree 2 TWS custom ear flaps provide a secure fit
TrueFree 2 has a built-in 6mm organic composite aperture driver that delivers precision sound with good clarity and low distortion. It does not offer noise cancellation, but it has dynamic bass.
A pair costs a fraction of the price of premium wireless headphones (such as Apple’s Airpods and Samsung’s Galaxy Buds), but they are competitive in terms of sound finesse and sound balance.
Design and Ergonomics
Truefree 2 is a stable standard unit enclosed in ABS plastic with glossy finish
TrueFree 2 sports exclusively made ears with rubber wings powered by Freebit to offer a custom fit. Although this prevents the device from falling, the tires lead to a rather sharp angle that then wraps around your ears making it a little uncomfortable to wear for the first hour or so.
In terms of design, we feel that the TrueFree2 charging case would feel more premium if it played in a matte finish (which we liked in the True Engine 3SE) instead of the standard glossy AB plastic. However, this is a personal preference, and some consumers may actually prefer a glow shade on their devices.

It has an IPX7 rating, which means that the headphones can withstand sweat and water and allow you to use them while doing strenuous activities such as sports and exercise.
Battery life and use
Battery life is also competitive, with a single charge providing four full hours of playback and the charging case providing an additional four full charges, increasing the total battery life at your disposal (and in your pockets) to 20 hours.
