TheSoundpeats Q2 wireless headphones struck me as being a lot more premium than the price suggested when I first opened them up. They come in a tidy little box, safely tucked away in a nice carrying case.

I popped the case open and found the headphones tucked away inside, already charged and waiting their first use. My first observation was that these headphones looked and felt good, withwell defined buttons and clear print and symbols.

At this price range I’m used to a flimsy wire and headphones that have a habit of popping out of my ears every few minutes. This set has a hard plastic loop with a soft matte finish that sits over yourearlobes, securing the headphones in place. The connection between the two earpieces sits along the top of your neck and is a fairly durable and thick wire with padding.

So design and build quality are right up there. In fact it was so impressive that I had todouble check the price to make sure I was reviewing these headphones against other devices in the price bracket!

Moving on to the audio side, probably the reason you’re looking at picking these up right? Well here’s where things aren’t as good.

The sound quality is OK, but they perform like a cheap headset. For the price bracketits what I’d expect, but they do seem just a little muffled with sub par audio range.

While listening to music the vocals were clear but instruments, especially bass, were drowned out. Things got a little better at louder volume, but that isn’t ideal and gets uncomfortable. Certain tracks were almost unidentifiable, just a singer and someone bashing a bass drum with everything else an inaudible blur. These headphones can’t cope with much more than a singer strumming an acoustic guitar.
