They called the s twos and a little bit different from the typical TWA stick that I have been reviewing, because these are hybrids. They'Ve got dual drivers in them, so we've got one handling the lows which are seven millimeters and then a balanced armature, which is handling the more higher frequencies, and these are going to be on IndieGoGo I've, seen that they will be listed first with an early bird Price of just 29 US dollars, and that is fantastic value really for how these sounds to me: testing them out now small disclaimer here that these were sent out free of charge. To me, in exchange for this video and all the opinions expressed in all my videos, including this one, of course I 100 set my own, and they are not approving this video before I publish it in a box, you'll find just two ear tips here, so they've Only got the medium ones that are already on the e buds and salves are no large. No small. Some farm tips would have been really great with, but some paperwork there and, of course, a type C cable there to charge them. There is a user guide in here as well, which is quite handy because it shows you how to correctly fit them. So you don't just push these into your ear. No, you have to push and then turn to get the correct fit. Otherwise they feel like they're. Always gon na be falling out on you.
It also tells you how to use the touch controls on here. So they're capacitive touch buttons, not Hardware click in ones. Unfortunately, they are pretty straightforward here, so double tap and hold for Siri or your Google assistant double tap to skip to the next track and if it's on the left, ear, double tap will go back to the previous. What is missing, however, is volume controls which to me are kind of essential and really a must have so the size of the case here, isn't too bad, but it's, not as small as some of the others I've seen, for example, the Jabra 75t elites. You can see that case is quite a bit smaller. This one won't actually fit in that small pocket of your jeans with this one won't it's, just a little bit too big for that it's got a 500 min of our battery within it down the bottom. Here that's the type C port for charging. Of course charge. Time is approximately two hours, just like the earbuds themselves. Now we do have a magnet in here to keep that lid closed so once it is closed, it will not actually wrestle around it or which is great. And then, if I open this up, you can see with a little bit of text inside there just outlining their battery capacities and when you do put them in here, the status LEDs will come on to let you know the charging that's pretty much like every other Brand there so once this is fully charged it's ready at the moment, it will then turn blue now.
The tops of them I have noticed will actually rub up against the inside of the case here, where those leaders are that I just pointed out, leaving a little bit of a silver mark on the top of that says minor nitpicking there. So really I wish they've done something else with that text or not used a silver paint there, but overall the build quality is not bad at all. Now we've got this little button on the back here so pressing. This will tell us our battery, so when it's red you need to charge, that means you've got 30 or less if it is yellow. That means you've got anywhere from 30 to 70 and then, if it's green, that means 70 percent battery up to 100. So you're good to go so the build quality. These tws earbuds is excellent. There are no sharp edges. It has that economic designed to it like in ear monitors just missing the hardware cable. You can see the status LED there, but closer so the material on the back. Here you can see it's different now it looks like it could actually be a physical click in button, but it's. Not these only have capacitive touch controls, not physical Hardware ones, which I would have preferred the ear tips. These are easy to replace and, as I pointed out, we've only got just the medium sized ones with this foam tips would actually be ideal too, if they included those but they're pretty easy to pick up and buy some of those, and there are our Pogo port Connectors right there for, of course, charging these earbuds you'll see.
It does also have some ticks right here, clearly labeling our left or right and pointing out the fact that we've got two drivers whether than this. So this is why these are called hybrids, because we've got the two drivers. One is the dynamic driver and then our balanced armature now in terms of runtime here from the battery with, in both of those earbuds here, it's, not record, breaking okay, they claim for ours. It all depends on your volume and the genre of music but I'm, getting approximately three hours and 40 minutes or so out of these. The most important thing is just how do they sound? This is all subjective, but I think they've done an excellent job, especially for the price of these. They sound fantastic because we've got a flat tune out of the box. You don't often get that often brands will pump up the bass in order to make them sound. Better for the general public, and really these are quite good now, because the bass is not going to be affecting our really our highs or the mids, even because they're separated of the drivers. I find that we get some very good. Clarity with instruments coming through highs are very crisp. They'Re clean and the vocals do sound good now for some people, the flatness of them may be a little bit disappointing, so grab your favorite equalizer. I use here this one is power amp, and I find it good.
So you can tweak up that bass a little bit if you push the bass too much, and then you increase the volume you will run into. I found some distortion coming through from that seventh millimeter driver, and that brings up another thing too, as well when no audio is being played, there's quite a bit of white noise coming through these a little bit more, that I'm used to hearing with Tos earbuds. So you hear that little tiny hiss in the background, but as soon as the music starts, you cannot hear it and what about our latency? This is one of the most annoying things with Bluetooth tech that a lot of people just avoid it because they don't like to see the lag. This sync, between the audio and the video being out now with these earbuds I'm, happy to report that when you put it in the performance mode, which is tapping at three times, the latency is very, very good. It is just a fraction of a millisecond delay here with my is 10 plus, and you barely notice. The audio sync is out at all. I think most people won't even pick it up at all and it shouldn't bother them. So this is really good to see. Here'S a sample of the microphone, so there is one in each of the ear bugs and the quality, as you can hear, is average it's, not particularly good, but it is far from the worst I have heard in all the PWS tech I'm reviewing now it is Meant to have active noise cancellation, but to me it is simply not working all right.
So let's talk a little bit about the fit of these it's. Not bad. Ok, but I've noticed that, at least with this ear it feels like sometimes it's going to come out with me. I think it's to do with the seal with the tips, but I often have to push it back in a little bit and give it another bit of a twist and go okay. There we go it's fine, now I've been using these for a long time. I'Ve been walking around the house just doing your normal daily activities and they have not fallen out. I have been outside playing a little bit of football with my kids running around as well, and I noticed then again that hang on it feels like it could drop out. So I think for runners, these are not really gon na be ideal. For that now they do have apparently, and I px5 rating – or they just say, they're splash resistant. But again I think sports, these probably aren't the ones for that. Now that microphone quality let's talk a little bit about that that it doesn't have any active noise cancellation. So if you're, some of the places a lot of voice calls, I can't recommend them for that until they fix that problem, because we need that noise cancellation. If you've got a busy office environment, you can hear people typing away in their keyboards having their conversations that's. All going to come through on the microphones work, these here touch controls.
Now they are working for me about eight times out of ten it's, not a hundred percent. I prefer physical click in hardware buttons, but they're okay, but the big thing is: where is the volume control on these? It lacks them. So that is a disappointment. There is well now this connections because of the times we're in right now I haven't been under test. These in town, in my apartment, that has a lot more wireless networks, around Bluetooth networks, all been transmitted at the same time. So I can't really comment on that one, but I haven't had any problems with disconnects now. The big selling factor for these isn't, the battery life now that's about four hours, a little bit less. You do get the additional four and a half charges which is good it's kind of run of the mill standard battery offering operating times there, but where it does, then it yes it's. Definitely the sound quality, I think it's, absolutely fantastic for the price. If you can get them for that initial, twenty nine US dollars, I would say, go and grab it and I'm, not just saying that, because they sent these out to me free of charge. It is my opinion there on these that this sound for that price. For twenty nine US dollars very, very good, because we've got that driver, that's handling our lows, and then we have their balanced, armature, so very crisp highs on here, but even the way they're tuned out of the box, I think it's very well balanced is good and You can boost up that base a little bit now.
There are a couple of Connie tiny complaints here, but if you boost the base up the low frequency and then really push that volume up, you will hear some distortion. Okay. So if you're a huge base lava, they love it super powerful, punchy, bass and really loud distortion might happen. It'S only happening on one of these ears, so it might just be the driver on this one, but I happen to think it'd probably be a general kind of thing and then the white noise you get so that hiss comes through a little bit of it. Just between tracks, I can hear that this, this faint hiss more than others now that's, always there on a lot of the other tech, tws tech. Normally before you hear that prompt coming up saying turning on or you turning off your hear, a sissing noise is just a little bit higher than normal there, but overall, I think for the price. These are good, as mentioned it's, just all about that audio quality. There. Thank you so much for watching my review here of the T. Sorry, the s2 is here from KZ acoustics.
