SoundPEATS Q32 Truly Wireless Earbuds

Summer is drawing to a close and cooler weather is inbound. You know what that means, don’t you? It’s time to start dropping some fresh tech reviews here on the site! It’s been a bit since my last review, and honestly, I was getting burned out on doing them at the time and focusing more on my photography. I’m back, however, and I hope to keep the ball rolling and add this back into the juggling act that is my life. Next up on the review desk: the SoundPEATS Q32 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds.

I’ve reviewed several pairs of headphones from SoundPEATS in the past, but this is my first pair of truly wireless earbuds from the company (or any other company, for that matter). I’ve got more headphones than I know what to do with, to be honest, but I didn’t have anything without any pesky cables until now.

Do they live up to the hype?

Lemme give you the quick rundown.

Here’s the info from the Amazon listing for this product – I still can’t track down an official website for the company.

SoundPEATS Q32 Wireless Charging Case

Build Quality

For $39.99, the build quality of the Q32’s is certainly acceptable. The receiver portion of each earbud is made of sturdy plastic, and there are different-sized tips to choose from to ensure a comfortable fit in your ears.

I’m a fan of the charging case that, as advertised, provides a solid 18-20 full charges for both earbuds. It’s also made of plastic (but doesn’t feel overly cheap) and has two magnets that help keep the earbuds firmly in place. The side of the case has a button that, when pressed, lights up LED charging indicators that let you know how much juice the case has left.

The included carrying pouch is a nice touch too, I suppose.

Overall, there’s nothing here to complain about.

Sound Quality

Let’s be real – these are forty dollar headphones here, Y’all. You’re not getting ‘Beats’ quality with the Q32’s, by any means.

The bass doesn’t quite bump enough, and the highs are slightly tinny, but they’re decent enough for my own taste, for sure. They’re definitely loud enough, but there is some room for improvement in the sound quality department.

One thing worth mentioning is an issue that, according to many of the product reviews on Amazon, the Q32’s left earbud drops its connection during playback. I can confirm this happens, and it’s annoying enough to almost be a dealbreaker – if there wasn’t a somewhat easy fix for the issue.

When pairing the two headphones to one another, you have to turn them on a few feet apart, rather than turning them on right next to one another, or putting them in your ears and turning them on. Pairing them at a distance seems to force a stronger connection, and doing so completely eliminates the problem for me.

It’s not that big of a deal, but it’s annoying that I had to read the Amazon reviews to discover this tip, and I’m certainly not the only one who’s experiencing it.

Battery Life

Each earbud gets about 3 hours of playback time at full volume and slightly more at half volume. And as mentioned above, with 18-20 full recharges using the case, that’s plenty enough battery to get you through a week or two of moderate use or even a full weekend of heavy usage.

That’s pretty dope if you ask me.

The Bottom Line

Got $40 you don’t mind throwing at a decent pair of truly wireless earbuds? As long as you take my advice and connect them a few feet apart – extending your arms to your side and turning them on should do the trick – you’ll be happy with the SoundPEATS Q32 Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds.

Pick up a pair on Amazon and get free shipping – you know, to sweeten the deal a bit.
