TWS "Tribit FlyBuds C1" with composite diaphragm for sound quality

The graceful ear handles are inspired by the elegant curves of a golf club, while the decorative metal mesh is inspired by a tennis racket. The rounded charging case is as comfortable in the hand as a pebble. Every time you hold it in your hand, you will feel the simple yet stylish design.

 

6mm diaphragm made of PU+PEEK composite material

The 6 mm diaphragm is made of PU (polyurethane) and PEEK (polyetheretherketone) hybrid material, which realizes skillful expression of intonation and suppression of distortion. From deep bass to crystal clear treble, you can enjoy powerful yet delicate sound.

 

Equipped with Qualcomm QCC3040 and TrueWireless Mirroring support

The latest Qualcomm QCC3040 Bluetooth SoC is used to provide stable communication quality and high sound quality codec aptX. It also supports TrueWireless Mirroring, a technology that transmits independent audio signals to the left and right units, which improves connection stability, suppresses sound drift and skipping, and significantly reduces power consumption for both iPhone and Android users.

 

Four microphones for clear voice calls

Four high-performance MEMS microphones (two on each side) are built-in to the earphones, and use Qualcomm's latest cVc 8.0 technology to suppress noise and reduce feedback echoes during calls, reducing environmental noise that can interfere with voice calls by up to 90% (according to our research). The position and orientation of the microphone are also based on our extensive know-how in product development.

 

Comfortable operation with physical buttons

The earphones are equipped with our patented physical buttons on the handle for various operations. You can adjust the volume, answer incoming calls, play/stop/skip songs, and call up Siri and other voice assistant functions smoothly without touching your smartphone.

Build quality

The charging case has a subdued matte black appearance. It's not quirky, but it's a little plain. The earphones have a tight appearance with bright red on a black background.

 

The build quality is up to the standard of the price. The charging case is smooth to open and close, with little wobble in the lid.

Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC. The quality of the connection is excellent for the price range. I haven't been in crowded places, so I don't know, but it's stable in the home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. Communication is interrupted for a moment when interrupted by a barrier, but then the music plays without any problem and there is no interruption.

 

There may be a small amount of white noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: A
  • Recommendation: A+
  • Personal preference: A+

 

The Tribit Flybuds C1 have an overall near-neutral, weakly U-shaped sound with good high-frequency extension, Tribit's signature massive lows and rich mids, highs with excellent detail and reverberation, and overall high fidelity to the original sound.

 

It can sound a little honked and noisy at higher volumes, but if you like a bright, clear sound with a good sense of perspective, this is the one for you.
