Treblab XR500 Review

The Pros & Cons

The Pros. The Treblab XR500s have very nice sound quality with crisp highs and detailed midrange. It leans towards the low-end frequencies and are best for those who enjoy a bass-heavy music such as rock and pop. The sound produced by the acoustic drivers is high-definition and full-range; they will handle most music genres across the sound spectrum which is very good. The battery life on the XR500s delivers an incredible 9 hours of continuous music playtime on a single charge.

The Cons. The CVC 6.0 noise cancellation technology seems to only work while taking calls with the Treblab XR500 – it does not feel like the noise cancellation is active while listening to music. The integrated microphone works fine but there are occasional signal drops while taking calls.

Sound Performance

The XR500s have a very crisp, clear and detailed sound quality. The sound quality is more suited for those who want a more bass-heavy sound, and can produce deep punchy lows that listeners of chill-step, electronic and pop will enjoy. The acoustic drivers on the XR500s are also capable of producing high-definition sound with incredibly crisp treble and detailed midrange – vocal performances came through as though we were listening to the concert live with crystal clarity. The frequency response on these earbuds is a nice 20Hz to 20kHz, which is a good frequency range for a variety of music genres. If your mobile device supports apt-x compression, this will drastically improve the sound quality through these Bluetooth earbuds – we would also recommend tweaking the EQ settings to get the desired sound performance. The passive noise cancellation design on the XR500s also helped to improve the sound clarity and bass response, while blocking out ambient background noise. For the best sound performance, we would recommend trying on the included ear-tips for the best fit in your ears to prevent any sound leakage.


The design of the XR500s looks sleek and modern, and feels very comfortable with its expandable foam ear-tips and ear hooks which help to secure them to your ears. We had no issues wearing these earbuds for hours of continuous use and did not experience any ear fatigue from prolonged use. The ear hooks are made of a soft silicon material which makes them very flexible and stable on the ears. These earbuds are designed to be IPX7 waterproof and sweat-proof which is great if you intend to use them for rigorous outdoor use. The cords are also short and lightweight which is great because they do not impede your movements; you can barely feel them on your neck which also reduces any drag on your skin. That being said, these earbuds may slip off your ears if too much sweat gets onto them as the sweat makes the silicone earbuds slightly slippery – you can eliminate this issue by simply wiping off the sweat from these earbuds and they will fit securely back into your ears.

Other Features

The great thing about the XR500s is that they feature CVC 6.0 noise cancellation which can reduce ambient background noise – this is especially useful if you need to use these earbuds in a noisy environment like the gym. The battery life on the XR500s is a stunning 9 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge, with a charging time of 2 hours. Once connected to your mobile device, the battery life also displays on the device screen which helps you to keep track on the battery usage. The Bluetooth signal range is a good 38 feet and you can also take hands free calls on your mobile device with these earbuds. The button controls on the XR500s are simple and intuitive to use, and you can use them to control calls, adjust the volume, skip, and pause and play soundtracks.

The Verdict?

The Treblab XR500s are a set of high quality Bluetooth earbuds that deliver quality sound performance. The XR500s is an amazing option for this price range, and delivers stunning sound performance that rivals that of higher end earbuds. Furthermore, the XR500s are designed to be IPX7 waterproof and sweat proof, which make them ideal for gym or sports use. These earbuds are also designed to be extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time without producing any ear fatigue; we particularly liked the soft silicon ear tips and ear hooks which kept them secure inside our ears. The battery life on these earbuds lasts a stunning 9 hours of continuous playtime, which is just about as good as it gets.
