After TicPods, RHA joins the wireless earphone league by TrueConnect buds

RHA's latest wireless TrueConnect Buds rival Apple's AirPod, offering high-bitrate streaming.


The earphones have gone a long way now from tangling wires to wireless experience. Even wireless earphones used to have cables trailing over the wearer’s back. But, now the market is overwhelmed with what the brands call ‘True Wireless Earphones’. Major brands like Apple and Samsung have already launched their wireless audio products. Unlike Samsung’s Gear IconX, the AirPods have a long stem coming out of it which lots of users didn’t give a thumbs up.

RHA, a Scotland-based headphones company, recently went wireless with their TrueConnect buds. The wireless buds directly compete with the Apple’s AirPods and Mobvoi’s TicPods Free.

RHA TrueConnect Buds: Specifications, Features

RHA TrueConnect Buds

The TrueConnect wireless buds come with 6mm dynamic drivers in each earpiece. For those who don’t know what the driver is, it’s basically what produces sounds in headphones or earphones. The next good thing about this earphones is the USB Type-C. With a single charge, this product can last you for 5 hours straight. Additionally, you can get another 20 hours of backup via its flip charging case. As far as the charging is concerned, a 15-minute of charging can give you up to 50% of juice which is amazing. The antennas support Bluetooth 5 which according to the brand was an essential step to achieve the high power efficiency.

With a frequency range of 16Hz to 18KHz, the earbuds will give high-bitrate streaming. It also has integrated buttons for controlling music playback and firing up digital assistant. The TrueConnect buds come with 3 hours of warranty. It also features IPX5 sweat, splash and weather resistance. As per the brand, the product is perfect for active users since it is comfortable and fits securely in your eardrums.

RHA (review) also explains why they decided to go with stem-like design instead of just wireless buds like the IconX. The sprouting stem consists of a microphone which will be a little closer to the wearer’s mouth giving clear and detailed call quality.

RHA TrueConnect Buds: Release Date and Price

RHA’s TrueConnect buds are up for pre-orders already with a reasonable price tag of US $170. The orders will start shipping from the October 18. So far, the earbuds sound pretty good on paper but the same isn’t always true when you actually use it. Looking at the RHA’s history in audio products, I am expecting this to be some pretty great earphones.
