Review of Edifier TWS1 Truly Wireless Earbuds
Welcome again for another truly wireless earbuds review. In this review, we will take a look at the Edifier TWS 1. These buds were amongst the very first truly wireless earbuds produced by Edifier and one of the cheaper, more affordable audio equipment in their shop list. These buds come with all the necessary features and few value additions to increase interest amongst the consumers. Edifier is known for its unique designs when it comes truly wireless earbuds, the TWS 1 is no different as it comes in a glossy finish and a sleek design. It stands out from the rest, but more than the appearance what we need to look at is the performance in these buds. That is how we judge earbuds to support the community in getting the best in the market.
Product Name: Edifier TWS1
Product Description: The Edifier TWS1 has a battery life of 8 hours with a single charge. The charging case adds another 32 hours of playback, which is another 3 full charging cycles for the buds. The case comes with a Micro USB charging port.
The Edifier TWS1 truly wireless earbuds come with decent sound, clear call quality, stylish design, amazing battery performance, and many more features that would interest the consumers.
The Edifier TWS1 comes with a weather-sealed water resistance rating of IPX5. These aren’t sealed against dust and they only protect against light water splashing. That said, IPX54 is more than enough for most earbuds, and the Edifier TWS NB2 can be easily used during your workout sessions or jogging sessions.
The Edifier TWS1 comes with 8 hours of playback time. That is way above par, and it is much more battery life you would get with other budget-truly wireless earbuds. You can get an additional 32 hours of playback with the charging case. Unfortunately, Edifier NB2 comes with a Micro USB charging slot for the case which takes the fast-charging feature.

Surprisingly, there are no other control actions in these buds. It’s not possible to change the volume on the earpieces or activate your voice assistant. A shame, since the long-touch functionality has not been used. These basic functions which most earbuds have like the Lypertek PurePlay Z3 or the Jabra Elite Active 75T.
The Edifier TWS1 comes with decent audio output. The highs are kept in tone, the bass never overpowers by pumping too hard. It delivers a balanced, if somewhat insignificant sound, which is ideal for everyday and background listening. The main bass delivers a nice kick, which doesn’t strike as hard as other brands such as the Haylou GT5 or the Earfun Air. The bass is always there, yet these aren’t bass-heavy pair of earbuds. The Edifier TWS1 earphones perform well for their price and handle instrumental separation well so long as there are fewer than five instruments, vocals included, at a time.
Tested with all the above along with classical music, bass-heavy music, and other genres, and it’s all passable, but not exactly powerful. You won’t be discovering previously unheard elements of your favorite songs with these buds. It’s not like you can tweak any equalizer settings to improve things either. These are suited for those not too fussed about the quality of their music, who just want some buds to soundtrack their workout or commute.
By far the best feature in the Edifier TWS1 is its power consumption. The 8 hours of playback ranks amongst the best truly wireless earbuds in the market. Not even the Apple Airpod Pro’s have this much playback time (of course it comes with Active Noise Cancelation). 8 hours is above par when it comes to truly wireless earbuds in the market. It is three hours more than you get from the PaMu Quiet Mini.
The Edifier TWS1 comes in a compact charging case that can easily fit into your pockets. The charging case adds another 32 hours of playback time which is three full charging cycles for the buds. This is more than enough to get through the day and if you only use this in your daily commute, these can even last a week. Compared to the JBL Tune 125 TWS which has only 24 hours of additional playback time, the Edifier TWS1 does a good job in power consumption.
