Over the years, Sandberg has been a common name on the site, with us reviewing nearly every gaming product they have released for their eSports line. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with their products, as they have always been very affordable and quality devices. Now, with the surge in popularity of wireless earbuds, we were given the chance by Sandberg to try out their Bluetooth Earbuds Touch Pro. We reckon the name alone already states what we can expect, and we were very curious to see what these very budget-friendly earbuds had to offer compared to premium-priced devices by Sennheiser and LG, or even the medium-priced Rolfstone earbuds. It’s easy to say that we were once again very impressed by the overall package.

 

 

 

 

Design

The Bluetooth Earbuds Touch Pro’s earbuds have a very sleek design and look like premium quality devices. While some finishing touches may not be perfect, such as the LED lights that also shine a bit through the plastic encasing of the earbuds, these earbuds look good. The finishing touches are mainly to be seen on the part that will be visible for those around you, as the exterior has a very sleek and glossy design, with the Sandberg logo and name on it. Other than that, these earbuds come with hardly any bells and whistles.

The charging case also does the same as the earbuds, with a matte undercoating, and a very glossy (and nice-looking) lid. The case also has LED lights indicating how much battery life is left. It’s all fairly standard stuff, but it still looks quite good.

Comfort

The comfort aspect of these wireless earbuds is also pretty much what you can expect from a product such as this. The shape has been properly designed to make sure the earbuds stay in place, and you’ll also get a few different ear-tips, making sure you can swap to the size you find most comfortable. There’s truly not much more to say when it comes to this. We did very much appreciate Sandberg adding a carry pouch to this already extremely budget-friendly package. This makes sure you can protect your charging case and prevent scratches on it, while also being able to carry around the different ear-tips and your charging cable.

Overview

There isn’t too much more to say here than we did in other reviews of wireless earbuds. You basically take the earbuds out of their charging case, you connect to your desired device, and you’re good to go in mere seconds. We didn’t have any difficulty setting up Sandberg’s Touch Pro package and we certainly found it a quality product. In combination with the charged case of the product, you’ll have around 20 hours of playback time, which allows you to properly enjoy your favorite music, movies, and series. The controls also work similarly to other products, as you have to tap the sides of the earbuds to skip tracks, pick up calls, pause songs, and raise or lower the volume. We do have to say that the latter felt a bit clunky, as you had to tap three times in a row on the left earbud to lower the volume, and three times on the right one to raise the volume. This would have been easier if Sandberg opted for a tap and hold function like many other brands do. Sadly, the case has to be charged with a Micro-USB cable, instead of having the more and more standardized USB-C connection.

As the Bluetooth Earbuds Touch Pro set comes at a ridiculously low price, we were absolutely surprised by the crisp and amazing audio quality. We truly enjoyed our listening sessions from start to finish, and except for the slightly ‘weaker’ bass, we didn’t notice that much of a difference compared to certain premium-priced models out there.

Conclusion

Sandberg’s Bluetooth Earbuds Touch Pro offers an amazing quality-to-price ratio, as you’re being treated to a great audio solution, including a fancy carrying pouch, with a reasonably long playback time, and crisp audio quality. Outside of the inconvenient volume controls and the fact that this device is not standardized with a USB-C charging option, this is basically the perfect package. We were very impressed, especially considering the low price tag that is linked to this product.
