FAQs

RHA Trueconnect- True Wireless Earbuds: A Complete Review

Another Apple AirPods killer? Not really. These are still gags. The price is higher than that of apple inserts, even the second version. Is this model worth the money? Let’s get it right.

2. Kit and appearance

In addition to the headphones, the RHA TrueConnect kit contains a charging case, 9 pairs of interchangeable ear pads (3 of which are foam), a USB-C cable and documentation. It will not be difficult to choose a convenient nozzle for yourself. Especially, of course, the presence of foamy options pleases: they “remember” the shape and provide excellent sound insulation.

 

RHA Trueconnect- True Wireless Earbuds

The model is clearly positioned as a luxury solution, which is only a metal shape for ear pads.

The RHA TrueConnect charging case is quite large, more than many. Made of metal and matte plastic. The developers worked on an unusual, but convenient opening/closing system: a lodgement with headphones rises with the lid.

Such an unusual approach gives every reason to believe that the headphones will not accidentally fall out of the case, and will be reliably protected from external influences there. It is unlikely that the case will accidentally open in a backpack, but it is not difficult to open it intentionally.

RHA TrueConnect look stern and stylish. The shape of the cases with legs gives a strong association with AirPods or even Xiaomi AirDots Pro. In my opinion, in terms of ergonomics, the form is far from the most profitable, but many like it.

The headphone cases are quite large and protrude from the ears. Not like some models, for example, from Bose, but they cannot be called invisible.

The matte plastic from which RHA TrueConnect is made looks high-quality, but, oddly enough, it collects fingerprints quite well. But overall, the model looks expensive, as it is. Not to be confused with Chinese crafts.

It is generally accepted that the glossy finish is more easily soiled, however, and matte options can bring surprises.

3. Comfort and control

RHA TrueConnect fits securely and comfortably in your ear. This is one of their main strengths. Theoretically, the model is well suited for sports , IPX5 moisture protection transparently hints at it. But it’s best to use these headphones for training in the gym, not in the street.

Foam earpads cut off external sounds especially well. In them, you are unlikely to even hear the signal of a passing car.

If you do not like sports or prefer to train without headphones, RHA TrueConnect will please you with a comfortable fit, thanks to which listening to music for several hours in a row is not a problem. If you select ear pads carefully and get used to a couple of days, I think it will be possible to listen to the headphones for 4-5 hours without removing them.

The controls at RHA TrueConnect are push-button. Logically divided into right and left earphones. A similar approach, but with touch panels, takes place with CaseGuru CGpods.

Volume control and navigation are implemented with a few taps on different cases. Pressing any button once pauses music or receives a call. With long presses, you can call the voice assistant or start the pairing process.

The debate about what is best for true wireless headphones: touch or button control has not yet been resolved. Touch panels are more prone to false positives, but by pressing the buttons, you often slightly change the position of the earphone, which in the case of plugs can affect the sound.

4. Connection quality

RHA TrueConnect supports Bluetooth 5.0 connection. In the room, the connection is very stable, with almost no interruptions. Even the audio out of sync with the video is minimal or absent: about 0.2 seconds on average. Very good for a fully wireless model.

However, on the street the picture often changes. There are lags, headphones periodically lose contact with each other. Depending on the location, this can occur up to a dozen times per hour.

Apparently, problems with outdoor communications are mainly found among owners of Android-smartphones, such troubles with the iPhone are much less common. iOS and Android differently distribute energy consumption, which may cause such lags, especially noticeable on true wireless models. Of course, the problems are caused not only by the features of the OS but also by the quality of the Bluetooth transmitter in the headphones.

RHA TrueConnect pairing with the source is standard: we take out the headphones, hold down the button on the right case for 5 seconds, and then we find them in the list of wireless devices. After that, the headphones will automatically connect to the paired device as soon as the owner removes them from the case.

True Wireless connection here is serial: the right earphone is the leader. It is he who communicates with the smartphone, and then with the left headphone. Accordingly, it can be used separately while the left is charging, but not vice versa.

Surprisingly, despite the impressive price, RHA TrueConnect does not support any high-resolution codec for Bluetooth connection. However, it is believed that if your phone supports the Bluetooth of the fifth version, the sound quality will be at a comparable level with aptX.

5. Battery life and microphone

Autonomy RHA TrueConnect at a good level for its form factor: up to 5 hours on a single charge, plus another 4 cycles in the case. According to actual tests, the headphones live about 4.5 hours of continuous music playback at an average volume level.

 

RHA Trueconnect- True Wireless Earbuds

This battery life is not a record for true wireless headphones, but it is quite comfortable for everyday use. It should be enough for a week of active listening.

Charging the RHA TrueConnect case takes place via USB Type-C, which is good. Wireless charging, unfortunately, is not supported, although the new version of AirPods and many other even cheaper models already have it.

For 15 minutes in the case, you can charge the headphones by 50% – fast charging is present . It takes 1 hour 40 minutes to fully charge the RHA TrueConnect.

On the case itself, there is an indication of the charge level, it deserves special mention that it is quite informative (3 diodes) and is located outside. To understand how much more you can stay away from the network, it is not necessary to open the case.

RHA TrueConnect microphone is quite high quality. In quiet rooms, audibility is excellent. On the street, you can also talk, but the interlocutor will still sometimes ask again.

6. Sound quality

The RHA TrueConnect sound is very high-quality for fully wireless headphones. It is for this parameter, apparently, that the manufacturer takes the lion’s share of the cost of the model. These headphones sound like true wireless models from Onkyo and Sennheiser, but not so smoothly. They are, in fact, also on the level.

  • LF. There is a lot of basses, it is everywhere. At the same time, it is quite high-quality, although it sounds in places swollen and dirty. If you like bass in music and are looking for fully wireless headphones, note that this is one of the best options.
  • MF. The middle is significantly “pushed” behind the lower frequencies. There is a separation of tools, but you can only talk about it in relation to the form factor. Classics, complex live music? No, here she will not deliver pleasure.
  • Treble. There are quite a few upper ones, they are clearly audible to the very edges of the range. In some compositions, emphasis on treble may not be very pleasant, sibilants sometimes appear.

RHA TrueConnect plays moderately detailed and vibrant for true wireless plugs.  It makes no sense to compare them with wired models even half the price, but against the background of direct competitors, these headphones look good. Uncomplicated electronics and all popular styles with synthetic instruments sound energetic and energetic. Headphones are swinging.
