Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless Earbuds Review

This is a test report of the new Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless Earbuds.

Altec Lansing announced the True EVO Wireless Earbuds officially on March 19 and we already got a pair here for review at I4U News. "True" is already in the name of these wireless earbuds, emphasizing the fact that there is no cable between the two earbuds like on the Beats PowerBeats3. The True EVO Wireless Earbuds come even with a wireless charging box.

In case you already have a Qi compatible pad, you can load up the charging box wirelessly. The box can also be charged via a micro USB cable. The battery life of these earbuds is up to 3 hours. The charging box can recharge them 4 times. Another feature that sets the new wireless earbuds from Altec Lansing apart is the integration of Siri and Google Assistant. A double-click on one of the button activates the voice assistant on your smartphone.

In my testing, I used an iPhone 7 Plus. I'm not a big fan of Siri as she has for some reason a hard time to understand me. I was quite surprised that Siri understood me right away through the True EVO Wireless Earbuds. Commands like "Play next song." or "How is the weather today." immediately worked.

The microphone really works well in the earbuds. So how about the sound? The True EVO Wireless Earbuds sound great. It's just bad luck that I just recently tested the Axum Gear wireless earbuds that deliver incredible deep bass using a bigger dynamic driver.

Now let's talk about a crucial aspect of wireless earbuds: the fit. Not only is the perfect fit important for the sound but also for how secure the earbuds stay in your ears. All ears are different, that is why earbuds come with a selection of different ear hooks and ear tips. The Altec Lansing earbuds come with three different size pairs of ear hooks, three sets of foam ear tips and three sets of silicone ear tips.

I ended up using the mid-sized ear hook and the mid-sized foam ear tip for the best possible fit. To secure the Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless Earbuds in your ear you rotate them forward. The earbuds feel relatively secure. Only when shaking my head ferociously they fall out.

I could not make the Axum Gear wireless earbuds to fall out. The design of the hook is smarter and with the right fit, there is just more pressure that keeps the earbuds in place.

Overall the Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless Earbuds are a well-rounded offering. Priced at only $99.99 these true wireless earbuds have a lot to offer. There is decent sound, comfortable wear, Siri and Google Assitant support, wireless charging box, and the Altec Lansing earbuds are IPX6 waterproof. For below $100, you will have a hard time to find better true wireless earbuds.

I can recommend these true wireless earbuds from Altec Lansing for everyday use. If you are into more extreme sports and addicted to deep bass, I recommend to check out the new Axum Gear wireless earbuds.

The Altec Lansing True EVO Wireless Earbuds are exclusively available at Best Buy. You can get them online at bestbuy.com.
