Budget wireless earbuds have advanced significantly in terms of functions and audio quality. However, finding a good one that sounds well and has a good ANC is particularly challenging because so many products claim to be the best in the market. Here is an in-depth evaluation of the Ikodoo Buds One to help you determine if the affordable TWS is worth the price. It claims to offer noise cancelling of up to 50 decibels.

 Are the Ikodoo Buds One the best true wireless ANC earbuds available for less than Rs. 6,999? Let's examine the review to learn more.

The finish on the iKodoo Buds One is plasticky. The Ikodoo Buds One earbud and case are made of plastic. However, the Ikodoo Buds One casing is durable throughout prolonged use. There is no noticeable fading or wear even after using the case and earbuds outside. The case of your earphones may get a little scratched if you store them in your handbag or pants pocket, but don't panic; scratches are only noticeable when you shine the flashlight from your phone directly on them. It is Low maintenance and sturdy. Keeping the grey version for review in mind, the scratches can be ignored.

Noise cancellation for Ikodoo Buds One

The noise cancellation on most low-cost TWS that support ANC is limited to 35 decibels, whereas iKodoo asserts that the Buds One reduces noise by 50 decibels. The earbuds effectively block out outside sounds. The application offers three ANC levels: moderate, balanced, and depth. When switched to depth, the traffic and street sounds were hardly audible. It will help if you are cautious while using them on the road, as you may not be able to hear the noises from outside.

Coming to microphones, these in-ear headphones have good microphones. The other person can easily hear you out even when casually walking through crowded markets and in overcrowded places outside. Voice is well transmitted, but the person on the other end of the call frequently can also hear sounds from a few yards away, which can be distracting.

While on a call, the sound clarity inside is excellent, and the callers can listen to one another. When used outdoors, the Environmental Noise Cancellation algorithm and the microphones perform a respectable job of reducing wind and road noises. Still, they are unable to do so for background human chatter.

How does it fit?

Small to medium ears fit the iKodoo Buds One comfortably. There will be no problems with the earbuds, even after watching a movie or listening to music for a long time. One set of ear tips is already attached to the earbuds, and two other different-sized pairs are in the box. You can select one of the three and see which one fits you the best based on the size of your ears. The iKodoo Buds One earbud stays in your ears even when running or jogging, but again, this depends on your ear size and fit, so your experience may differ.

The silicone earbud tips fit comfortably in the ear canals and provide adequate passive noise isolation. The iKodoo Earbuds One earbuds are also comfortable to use for extended periods. They don't pop out of the ear during a workout, jog, or any other sport activity because of the snug fit. If the preinstalled medium-sized tips don't fit comfortably, the package has two additional ear tips.

Audio quality

The sound profile of the iKodoo Buds One is perfect too. The iKodoo Buds One is an excellent pair of wireless earbuds if you enjoy Bollywood and sultry music because the voices are clear and the treble is balanced. The iKodoo Buds One has better instrument separation than most wireless earbuds in the affordable price range.

However, the 'Bass' option in the programme silences the voices, so bass enthusiasts will need to play around with the equaliser. The earbuds don't have strong bass, but they shine in other areas if you prefer electronic, dubstep, house, or music of a similar nature. Overall, the audio quality is excellent for the cost.

 The 'gaming mode' on the iKodoo Buds One also lowers latency. Since the audio and video were frequently in sync with the games like Call of Duty and PUBG New State or viewed movies on YouTube. This option is beneficial.

 Range and Pairing experience

The iKodoo Earphones app must be downloaded from the Play Store to pair the earphones with your phone, which requires an additional step.

However, the connection is relatively solid once linked, and the iKodoo Buds One earphones do not abruptly disengage. When you move around in your house, at a distance of roughly 12 feet with walls in between, neither the music quality nor the earphones lose connection. So it gets a Thumbs up. After all the challenges of pairing the earbuds, it is worth the time and effort.

 How long does the battery last?

The iKodoo Buds One earbuds may last between 5 and 7 hours on a single charge, depending on how you use them. The iKodoo Buds One earbuds are switched off closer to the 6-hour mark when you activate ANC while watching movies or listening to music, which is decent. The battery life might be extended to between 7 and 8 hours by turning off ANC. But ANC gives a better experience, so it is suggested to use them with ANC. The casing provides an additional 19 hours of playback, bringing the overall battery life to 27 hours. ANC extends the full battery backup between 16 and 22 hours. If you switch the ANC off, 10 -15 minutes of charging results in nearly two hours of playtime for these earphones, which feature rapid charging. The case and buds may be fully charged in roughly two hours using a cable charger.

 What is the Final verdict on the iKodoo Buds One earbuds?

  • The sound is considerably good.
  • Noise cancellation works well.
  • Comfy in-ear fit and small charging case
  • Decent battery life
  • Compatibility for wireless charging
  • Dust resistance
